PS...Pro Mineral Foundation // Review

So I was in Primark's huge Liverpool store a week or so ago, and I noticed they had a lot of the new Ps...Pro make up range which I'd heard about on good ol' YouTube. The packaging is sleek and there's a decent range of stuff, and it's still not gonna break the bank. So far so good, and I picked up a bottle of the Mineral Foundation. The website says this stuff is four quid, but I paid a fiver for it. Still, that's one of the cheapest foundations you can get.

The colour range, obviously, isn't wonderful - it never is with "drugstore"/high street foundations; it literally comes in five shades with the darkest being chestnut. Obviously I'm pretty pale, so this isn't a huge issue for me but I think brands ought to do a lot more to cater to dark skinned girls and boys. I picked ivory (01) which was the lightest there was; they also do a porcelain shade, which in my head should be lighter, but I can't tell from the photos on the website and they didn't have this one in store... Anyway, ivory is probably a bit too dark for me - I'm an NC10 in MAC, if that's anything to go by.

The consistency is SO thick; I'm a pump-it-on-the-back-of-your-hand kind of girl, and normally I have to balance my arm at a certain angle to avoid having foundation dripping down my arm - but this doesn't budge. This makes it interesting when it comes to blending - I use a buffing brush, because that's just what I use for foundations, and it does take a while to buff it into the skin. I've never used a beauty blender, so it probably wouldn't be fair for me to try it with this.

It's a pretty full coverage foundation - I'd say it covers most of my imperfections, although I do use concealer underneath. I like the finish it gives, which is quite dewy without being particularly shiny. I do powder a bit, but I always do. One downside is that it does feel tacky throughout the day, but I find it wears quite evenly and lasts a relatively long time if you use a decent primer.

So would I recommend it? If you can find your shade, then totally. Let me know if you try it!
