Larenim Mineral Airbrush™ Pressed Foundation 3-WM -- 9 g
Great coverage, bad smell
I was excited to try this since the ingredients were so wonderful. I was trying to replace a CoverGirl product that was being discontinued, and wanted to switch to something more natural. First, I didn't like the applicator that came with it at all. I swapped that out for a more sponge-like pad that applied better. The color, for me, isn't great. I have medium toned skin that tans easily, and it was far too light. I can use it, but I have to apply bronzer over my entire face in order to not make me look so pale. I will say, the coverage is fabulous! I have acne prone skin that is combination...which can be difficult to find something that covers any breakouts well, yet isn't oily or drying...this fits the bill (especially since I can't wear liquid foundation due to my skin type). It really hides flaws beautifully. I typically use this as a base over any primer, and then put a pressed powder and a bronzer over this, or just spot apply this in areas where I need it and REALLY blend it well since it is a bit light for me. The one thing I really hate is the smell! Ugh! I am learning to just take a deep breath and not breath it when I apply.I strongly dislike it, but it wouldn't deter me from purchasing again. I would definitely choose a different color though.

Doesn't match well on skin with reddish tones
I have light skin with reddish tones, green eyes and blonde hair. This makeup has yellow tones in it and didn't match my skin well. I won't be purchasing again.

Full coverage makeup
Full coverage, goes on smooth, a true medium beige color. For the most part stays on good.

Great mineral makeup
Great makeup that covers some flaws on your skin. I love that it does not have all the nasty chemicals that store brand powder you can buy.

Wow - so impressed!
This makeup is fabulous. The coverage is excellent and the color ended up being just perfect. I had a hard time choosing - but I'm glad I chose 3WM. I have medium, slightly olive skin and tan easily. I found the powder compact slightly hard to open, but the makeup itself is great. It has good coverage (can be applied lighter) but doesn't look too makeup-y. Instead, it sort of gives an airbrushed look. I've been using 100% percent pure powder foundation which is messy, gets used up quickly, and doesn't have great coverage. This one is so much better! I used Laura Geller baked foundation before that, and in addition to it having better ingredients, the Larenim is just better overall! Yay!
