{Have you ever tried a loose mineral foundation? I’ve been a fan for years as they give great coverage, and match my skin tone much better than liquid foundations. Let me introduce you to my favourite: Inika Loose Mineral Foundation SPF25, and the matching Mineral Mattifying Powder.

About Inika

I’ve used several Inika products, and their amazing mascara is amongst my favourites. Their products are all packaged in smart matte black containers, with cardboard boxed that are easily recycled.

Inika Loose Mineral Foundaton SPF25 and Mineral Mattifying Powder Review

All Inika’s ingredients are ethically sourced, natural and derived from botanicals or minerals. They are certified organic, vegan, halal, and cruelty-free. This means they don’t contain petrochemicals, synthetics, mineral oils, parabens, talc, PEGS, gluten or lactose.

Inika Loose Mineral Foundation

This is a 100% natural mineral powder, with a flattering, slightly radiant finish. They say it gives “flawless coverage whilst maintaining a natural finished look, without clogging pores or irritating even the most sensitive skin.”

It’s suitable for covering acne, pigmentation, rosacea or scarring, though in my experience, a concealer is needed too. I find the coverage pretty good, but I wound’t describe it as flawless. That said, you can build the coverage without it caking, and it goes well over concealer.

Inika Loose Mineral Foundation contains Titanium and Zinc Oxides for natural sun protection of SPF25. I wouldn’t recommend relying on any make-up for sun protection and advise you to wear a proper sunscreen. However I see this as an added bonus.

Inika Loose Mineral Foundation comes in eight shades, and I find a pot lasts a long time. You can buy Inika Loose Mineral Foundation at Love Lula for £30*.

Inika Mineral Mattifying Powder

This mineral mattifying powder looks white in the pot, but is invisible when you put it onto your skin. Inika Mineral Mattifying Powder creates a natural matte finish, and can be used on bare skin, over concealer, or over powder.

You can even use it before foundation to absorb excess oil and help minimise the look of large pores, fine lines and redness. Of course when dusted over foundation, it helps set it, to make it last longer. Inika say it gives a “healthy looking, airbrushed finish” and I think it does minimise the look of imperfections and shine, and it gives a great finish to make-up

Inika Mineral Mattifying powder comes in one universal shade, and again, I find a pot lasts a long time. You can buy Inika Mineral Mattifying Powder at Love Lula for £23*.

On the left, I am wearing Alteya Sunscreen, which has a slight tint, and Inika Loose Mineral Powder Foundation with Mineral Mattifying Powder to set. On the right, I am also wearing Madara CC Cream, which gives a more even base for make-up, and you can see my skin does look more even. I think it covers well, whatever base I’m wearing underneath.

I was sent my first pot to review, but loved it so much I bought it again. Why not Pin my review for later?
