Collection 2000 Perfecting Minerals

We're stepping away from the OPI madness for a moment, to look at a surprisingly excellent mineral foundation from Collection 2000. It's called Perfecting Minerals, and promises to be a "Silky, luminous mineral powder" with "Foundation-like coverage". I got this a couple of months ago from Superdrug when they were running a 3 for 2 offer on various make-up ranges. It was £5.99. We'll come back to this later. I know a lot of people aren't, but I'm a huge fan of mineral foundations. My skin is oily with large pores and potential for raging breakouts, and I'd always struggled to find a daily foundation I could use that wouldn't irritate my skin. The first (and only other) mineral powder I used was Laura Mercier's, thought to be one of the best, so this one had a lot to live up to.

And I am delighted to be able to say that it has more than matched up to its much more expensive rival. Beautifully easy to apply (although I binned the little brush it came with that you can see in the picture and use my own), good coverage, lovely satiny, glowing finish, and stays put all day. I could not be more impressed with this product. A little goes a long way so it's even better value for money.

Oh, have we talked about the fact that it's only £5.99? £5.99!!!! Amazing. I love it. Best thing I've bought so far this year.
