Swatches & my opinion about Extra Virgin Minerals Compact Foundation


It blends in easily, covers minor blemishes and acne scars…. Its consistency is very creamy.   I like to use the Extra Virgin Mineral Powder over the top to set this. It lasts for a long time…I don’t like the applicator that comes with it, Instead I prefer a sponge…
I’ts packaging is good, easy to travel with…I have tried the liquid foundation from this range as well…I am impressed with the quality of this too…I prefer to use this on light makeup days…
Its a bit pricey in my opinion…I have combination skin which is sensitive…This didn’t cause any breakouts or irritation on my skin..The entire range of Virgin Minerals is said to contain Olive Oil which is infact good for skin!

 When I use this, I usually touch up 2-3 times during the day time, as it made my skin a lil oiler  compared to other foundations…Other than that I am quite impressed with this…


  • good packaging
  • vegan 
  • easy to blend and apply
  • no irritation or redness on skin

  • easily available
  • variety of shades to choose from
