Finally! A perfect foundation!, January 9, 2012

This review is from: Dual Powder Foundation Extra Light Beige Natural By Gabriel Cosmetics (Health and Beauty)

I have rosacea with both general redness plus deeper red blotches and clusters of visible blood vessels. I’ve tried many expensive liquid foundations, solid cover-ups, and Bare Escentuals. The solid cover-ups looked like I was wearing a cakey mask–even worse than the rosacea. My skin breaks out if I don’t stick to non-comedogenic ingredients, but it’s also very dry, and no matter how much moisturizer I’d put on first, both the liquid foundations and the Bare Escentuals mineral make-up gave me a ridiculous “flakey-face” look.

I’ve been using Gabriel for over a year now, and still can’t believe how beautifully it works. My skin looks clear and radiant when it’s on. I think that keeping the formula smart, simple and natural, combining minerals with light moisturizers like squalene, make this the ultimate make-up. I hate to take it off at night and reveal what’s underneath!

It goes on easily, and the smooth, full coverage lasts all day. First I put on moisturizer, which I add two drops of jojoba to because my skin is so dry. Then I use an eye shadow brush to apply the powder to the reddest spots. Then I use a round sponge to dab or push it into the rest of my skin, and then lightly brush over my skin with the sponge to be sure it’s even. I don’t use the round sponge that comes with the compact. Instead I buy Essence of Beauty compact replacement sponges at CVS. I find the make-up goes on better.

I’ve been using Gabriel pressed powder for almost a year now. I discovered it at a Wholefoods supermarket and have been hooked since. This product provides plentiful coverage that can be layered on to meet your coverage needs yet it is soft and light-weight. My skin feels like it can breath. Plus no talc, no shine! I actually had the opportunity to meet the creator of this line recently. His name is Gabriel and he is a Venezuelan make up artist who resides in Miami and created this line to be safe and natural for your skin. Gabriel had bad skin growing up and wanted to create a line of products that wouldn’t harm the skin or cause breakouts. Really nice guy, really nice product. This particular Amazon seller sells the pressed powder for 13 dollars and change which is a steal you can expect to pay almost 25 dollars at Wholefoods. Get yours now, I promise you’ll love it as much as I do.

I use Gabriel Cosmetics liquid foundation on a regular basis, but since this summer was particularly hot and humid, it seemed too much for my face to have the liquid foundation along w/the moisturizer on.

So I decided to try this powder foundation to wear alone for the warmer, more humid days and I am really pleased w/it. It glides on very easily over my moisturizer and feels so light, as if nothing is there at all. It does a great job of coverage and evening out the skin tones too, w/o any liquid foundation underneith it needed. What is great, is I can carry it around w/me for a quick no mess touch up if need be. It is a great natural product w/o the skin irritating ingredients that can cause break outs.
