Raw Minerals Review

Pin It Now!


Long gone are my high school days of wearing “pancake” make-up to cover up my freckles.  Since then I have made peace with my freckles, and for most of my make-up wearing life, I have been wearing all sorts of liquid foundations.  But, for the past year or so, I have been trying mineral make-up, which I really like: less mess, more natural looking, etc.

I was more than eager to give Raw Minerals a try and review it for myself and for all women out there who want great, natural looking skin!


I have been using Raw Minerals Discovery Kit, which includes Light Duo, Mineral Glow, Active Veil, Maximum Coverage Foundation Brush, Concealer Brush, and Multi-Tasking Retractable Brush, now for a few weeks and have been wondering the entire time, “Maximum Coverage Foundation Brush, where have you been all my life!”  It’s the best make-up brush I have ever used, in fact, I didn’t even know a make-up brush could be so wonderful!  The ladies on the Getting Started DVD kept talking about how soft it was, and they were absolutely right!

The rest of the Discovery Kit includes:body_photo_light_duo

two shades of foundation in case they need to be mixed in order to match your skin tone perfectly.  I am glad because I do need to mix them.  If you don’t need to mix for the perfect shade, you can specify that your next kit come with the same 2 shades.  After applying the foundation with the amazing Maximum Coverage Brush, I apply a little extra foundation with the Concealer Brush to my under eye area and to any minor blemishes I may have.









Mineral Glow, which gives your skin a natural, sun-kissed glimmer.  The DVD explains where to use this on your face, and I even like to apply it to my eyelids and lips for an overall natural look. 


Active Veil, which sort of “seals” everything in and also contains sunscreen.



Both the Mineral Glow and Active Veil are applied with the Multi-Tasking Retractable Brush.


Also included in the kit is a Getting Started DVD.  It was very informative and gave clear, step-by-step instructions.

I honestly like the way Raw Minerals looks and feels on my skin. It’s not heavy, and I don’t feel the need to constantly do a “powder touch-up” like I did when using liquid foundations.

Knowing that I am using products on my skin which contain no harsh chemicals, artificial colors, or synthetic fragrances makes me feel pretty good, too.

2009-10-27 034 Me with the rest of my make-up on.  I just used some extra Mineral Glow for blush and lips, although I did use lip liner to make my lips look more full.  I used all of my own eye make-up.

Please take a moment to browse around their site and see for yourself how Raw Minerals can help you achieve the perfect, all natural look!
