NORRSKEN, IDUN MINERALS. I've been a fan of the brand since I first tried their mineral powder a few years back. I like that their makeup is especially made for sensitive and allergy prone skin, and since I like supporting local brands - the fact that this brand is Swedish is also a big plus. When Idun Minerals finally launched their liquid foundation, this gal was very pleased - because even though I like their powder foundation, I have dry skin and therefore always prefer liquid foundations, as they sit better on my skin throughout the day.
I thought the price tag for this little glass bottle was quite hefty when I saw it, especially since I was a uni student at the time. But, having read all of those glowing reviews online, how could it not be worth it? It was truly great, wasn't it?
Well, I splurged, tried it and hated it. I thought it was dry, applied terribly and clinged to my dry patches. I set it aside, not wanting to waste time on such a bad product, yet I couldn't really toss it. But then I bought a Beauty Blender and things changed. You know - that overly expensive makeup sponge that you wet, squeeze the water out of until it's damp, and then apply foundation with? Putting it shortly; together with a damp Beauty Blender sponge, this little bottle is pretty awesome. And yes, the Beauty Blender is worth the money, too.
