My review of Ellana’s French Vanilla Latte Mineral powder foundation
March 10, 2017
”I love it! It has the right amount of coverage and it has an amazing staying power. A little goes a long way. It lasts from day to night. It keeps my face oil free. It doesn’t break me out. It’s the only foundation that suits my sensitive acne prone skin. It lets my skin breathe because it doesn’t have any harmful chemicals. This is my holy grail make up. I will definitely repurchase.”
–Mary A. (from ellanacosmetics.com)

My daily skin!

I was not into foundation because I am an advocate of anything “natural & organic”. I used to go for a more skin-friendly (less evil—so to speak) BB or CC cream. But when I discovered Ellana and found out their products are vegan and organic, and after watching a lot of reviews, I decided to give it a go and only found myself trying more and more of their other products. This powder foundation really looks and feels like my own skin, so lightweight and natural-looking. It gives a healthy glow specially when my natural oils mixes with it. The coverage for me is medium, I haven’t tried to really build it up to see if full coverage can be achieved without looking cakey. Nonetheless, I sooo love it and it’s so easy and quick for daily use.

french vanilla ftw!

The only thing about this that I am not a fan of is the price but the overall effect is worth more than its retail price. For a brand that is not international, I was very impressed with the coverage and staying power. It made my face look natural and smoothe.

Feeling pretty all day long!!

True to its claim that this would cover your imperfections all day! I love that it gives me a matte and natural glow. Aside from that, it's natural!! Very suitable for my sensitive and acne prone skin. Use this with a primer and no other liquid or cream foundation needed. Because this has a medium to full coverage. Also, a little goes a long way. Even it looks less... remember.. less is more. This will be my forever foundation.

Works great for oily skin!

I've been using this product for 2 weeks now and I can say that it is working well with my oily skin. I'm used to liquid foundation and accepted the fact that I still really need to blot every hour or sometimes 30 mins because of my oily skin. Then I discovered this product! I used this along with the Ellana blur primer. It's coverage is just same as the liquid foundations but it is very lightweight. Also, it really controlls oil very well. I just need to blot or touch up 2 or 3 times a day. I think if you are not oily, maybe once is enough. I will definitely repurchase this item. Also one great thing is the wide selection of shades.

Saves me time in makeup application

I purchased mine from the Ellana booth at Landmark Trinoma in the Hazelnut shade -- which I just finished. Learning curve was pretty steep for me, but the time invested was all worth it! What I love most is that it cuts my makeup application time as I don't need to but base powder or even bake my face. I can go straight to going into a full face beat! I found that my best practice in application is wearing pore minimizing primer (this is very important, specially if you have oily skin and relatively large pores) before application, applying it with a dome brush (take some time to work the product into the brush to minimize fallout and makes blending easier), and using setting spray to make it last over 6 hours. This is a gem of a local product, and really ideal for us who live in the hot and humid Philippines.

Most awesome mineral foundation!

It may look intimidating at first because of the price but the moment you try it, you'll realize the value for money that they have for this product. And it's locally made! The powder is so fine and highly pigmented that a little amount really goes a long way! I use this with a sponge because my skin gets irritated when using a brush. Just a few pinch of this powder is enough to cover you face. I love the matte finish and how natural it looks on my skin. It waterproof and gym proof! I used this when I workout and man, it still makes my face look fresh after one hour of sweating like a pig. This is the first local mineral make up to have plenty of shades that are suited for Asian skin as they have several shades for yellow undertones. And they don't just value quality cosmetics, they value the environment as well because their packaging is reusable and environment friendly. Imagine buying your foundation refill in a healthy sealed paper? How brilliant is that? The person who invented this is genius. I'm definitely sticking to this mineral make up.
