Estee Lauder Nutritious Mineral Makeup & Fleur de Lys Powder

Estee Lauder's entry into Mineral Makeup has launched. It's called Nutritious and comes in both a liquid and powder version. Both are good foundations, it just depends on preference and skin type.

Nutritious has many good for you ingredients including Pomegranate extract, Vitamins C & E, Iron, Potassium and Magnesium. They are SPF 15 .
The liquid is medium coverage. It gives a dewy look with a natural finish. This is best for normal to dry skins. It is very soft and applies easily.

The powder, my personal choice, is the go to for oilier skins or those who prefer powder foundations. It is not drying in any way and has a fuller coverage than the liquid. It's medium to full coverage. The jar is large and comes ith it's own brush, but you can easily use a puff or your own brush as well. You don't need a lot of it for coverage and it blends quicky.

It does give the skin a soft focus look.
Estee Lauder has put microsphere powders in both formulas to help achieve this.

Nutritious Vita -Mineral Loose Powder Makeup is $ 33.50( currently online & exclusive to Nordstrom)
Nutritious Vita-Mineral Liquid Makeup $ 33.50( on counter in Feb.)

I also have a close up of the so pretty new Fleur De Lys Shimmer powder for Spring. This gives a great soft pink glow. The fuschia is an overspray and comes off. The powder color does go perfectly with the new Mayfair Mauve lipstick. I never thought I would wear that color, but it looks pretty nice. The two together make a very bright , soft look. ( I use the powder as a blush).
