Makeup and Muses: La Bella Donna Review12/12/2012
Long-lasting mineral makeup is like a girl's best friend. When makeup is made from rocks in an inorganic state it is not absorbed into the skin, which allows the mineral makeup to keep your pores unclogged.
What kind of makeup can do this? La Bella Donna Minerals On-The-Go for one.
I received this Minerals On-The-Go dispensing brush to review. The container is really useful and inventive.
The coolest thing is that the tube contains both the mineral foundation and the white goat hair brush for application.
To use, just remove the lid to showcase the brush. The dispenser comes with a dial with 10 points of application. Dials 1-3 provide light application; dials 4-6 provide medium application; and dials 7-10 provide full coverage.
The fact that you can easily choose how much coverage you want is reason enough to try this product at least once.
Once you've decided which dial to use, simply brush lightly all over your face. You should see the makeup as you're applying.
My favorite attributes of the La Bella Donna Minerals On-The-Go product are the dial system and ease of use. I don't know of any other foundation that allows you to choose the coverage using a simple dial.
This means you can personalize the amount of color you want depending on the occasion. Also, the tube is perfect for traveling because it includes the mineral makeup and the application brush all in one.
As an added bonus, the mineral makeup provides a full spectrum natural UVA/UVB SPF 20 sunblock that lasts all day. This means you can wear this makeup to go swimming or exercising without worrying about removal. But because of the minerals, you can easily remove it with a cleanser. The product was not tested on animals and was made in the USA.
What I didn't like too much about the Minerals On-The-Go foundation is that, even when I used a full application, I didn't feel like it gave me as much coverage as I normally get with my liquid makeup. Also, I received the Honey shade, which I think is a bit too light for my skin tone, and I believe the darker Caffe shade would have made coverage application less of an issue.
My overall review:
