Antipodes Performance Plus Mineral Foundation Pale Pink SPF15
I’ve had the opportunity to test this powder foundation by Antipodes. This was my FIRST POWDER foundation used, because my skin is dry I’ve been hesitant to use powders (dry cracks/flakey skin eww). However this goes against ALL ODDS!
Texture: finely milled soft powder.
Application: super easy. I pour a bit out in the palm of my hand, take my Real Techniques expert face brush, and dab first then swirl to blend in.
Coverage: even, smooth, silky, soft covreage. Plus it is buildable. Concealer will be needed for any deeper pigmentation or scarring, but redness and broken capillaries (for me) is covered.
Wear time: retains for full day, no touch up, but because it is mineral you will develop a slight shine which for me is more of that dewy glow that you get on the runway! So if you don’t like any shine, you might want to powder a little in the afternoon.
Color: I have Yellow 2 which is featured below. It is a little tanned for me, so I have purchased the Pale Pink 1, which is great match. And I use the Yellow 2 as a very light bronzer.
Ingredients: I love the sleek packaging. And of course I have included the ingredients list for Yellow 2 so you can see all the natural ingredients contained within.
Verdict: 11/10 – this is the ONLY foundation that I have used where friends and colleagues have come up to ask me what I was using! It is absolutely amazing.
This foundation contains Vinanza Grape & Kiwi which has been scientifically demonstrated positive effects on skin and is a core ingredient used in a lot of their other products.
Who would have thought powder foundations can be so good on dry skin. It’s natural, it’s supports your skin and provides natural spf. I love it!
Have you used any Antipodes products, what are your thoughts.
