The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Liquid Foundation Review

By 17:34 , ,

Next to be reviewed from The Body Shop's New Extra Virgin Minerals (EVM) range is the Liquid Foundation with SPF 30. As with the other products in this range, it contains ultra-fine minerals and extra virgin olive oil. The EVM Liquid Foundation is described as moisturising, which I am a tad apprehensive about.

It has great packaging - glass container and a convenient pump dispenser. I find the texture to be light and slightly creamy. I was told by Ting, TBS  MA that to get the best result from this liquid foundation is to apply it with a sponge in a dabbing motion which will give you a smooth finish. I don't really fancy using sponges as a lot of product ends up on the sponge instead of the face. But for this review I tried out the sponge. It was easy to blend and my skin looked smooth with a dewy finish. It felt comfortable on my skin. My oily skin in mind I brushed the EVM Loose Powder over it with a light hand. I'm pretty sure that defeats the dewy effect but without the powder it may not have lasted long. It has a medium to high coverage which is buildable. I'm quite impressed, it managed to cover up my dark blemish scars rather well.

My shade: 208 Golden Vanilla
This shade is still a pink tone but is the closest match to my yellow tone skin from this range.

Notice the dewy look even after loose powder

What I noticed within the first half hour was that my oils were slowly seeping out making me look a bit too "dewy". Surprisingly it lasted about 6 hours on my face without melting off or looking patchy. But there was foundation residue on the blotting paper everytime I blotted off the oily bits. Expect no oil control properties from the EVM Liquid Foundation as it is meant for all skin types. I feel that it would work loads better for dry and normal to combination skin types. For those with oily skin like me, you might want to try this out at the outlet first to see the effect it gives before settling on it.

Extra Virgin Minerals Liquid Foundation retails at RM79 (28ml / 0.95oz). It is available in 6 shades in Malaysia.

  1. Hi, great review. I'm following you now ^_^. I'm planning to get this, this weekend. I like the sound of the extra virgin olive oil and oh so natural ingredients in it. Plus, winter is here now and my skin is super dry during winters so this would be great ^_^.
