Prescriptives All Skins Mineral Liquid Makeup

Let me say , first, that aside from the new Mineral Powder foundation from Precriptives I got a few months ago, I had not used a foundation from them in years. I like the powder one, but as of yet I'm on the fence with the various mineral foundations. I was far more happy to see a liquid version. I also realized that re-visiting Prescriptives was going to be a good idea.

This new one is called All Skins Mineral Makeup 16 Hour Wear/SPF10.

It is definitely long wear. So many foundations claim to be humidity and sweat resistant, and on me , they aren't. I never expected this to be either, frankly. I can melt almost any makeup . So on a hot , very humid day, I went into the bathroom ,looked in the mirror after several hours, and it still looked good. It was all there, even having been out in the heat at times. Not bad at all. Color me happily surprised. Yes I still got some T Zone shine, but nothing major.

The coverage here is good, it's medium to full. Concealer still needed on some acne spots but that was it. It's light feeling on the skin , blends right in.
