Prescriptives is having their Friends & Family Event today through the 24th!
Prescriptives’ All Skins Mineral Makeup SPF15 ($32.50) is described as a weightless, long-wearing mineral makeup foundation. It is supposed to be filled with “good-for-you” ingredients. I’ve yet to fall head over heels in love with any mineral foundation; I feel like I get more on my bathroom counter and my shirt (and somehow, I am always wearing black when I try a mineral foundation!) than my face. I also find that loose powders, in general, settle more into the lines and pores of my face, making my skin seem rougher. Prescriptives’ mineral makeup does not share this common trait; I find that it doesn’t settle in the lines around my lips (those pesky smile wrinkles), which is a huge plus for me. So the fact that it doesn’t settle into fine lines makes this a supreme choice for those of us who are experiencing those telltale signs of aging and want to minimize–or at least not emphasize (!)–them.

Introducing Prescriptives All Skins Mineral Makeup SPF 15
The proven purity and healthy benefits of mineral makeup meet the exact foundation expertise of Prescriptives – introducing Prescriptives All Skins Mineral Makeup SPF 15.
- What’s in it for you? Vitamins, minerals, gems, sun protection – all helping your skin look naturally radiant and unbelievably healthy.
- What’s not in it for you? Oil, talc, fragrance, pore-clogging ingredients – all the things that may make you hesitate about wearing makeup.
- Why gems? Prescriptives All Skins Mineral Makeup is the only mineral makeup that features R.E.C. (Radiance Emitting Crystals – a unique complex of Amethyst, Rose Quartz and Calcite). R.E.C. helps absorb light and gives skin extra radiance and luminosity. The semi-precious gems and minerals help give the makeup a luxuriously silky feel, while the energies of Calcite help give skin a soft, luminous finish as if it were “glowing from within.”
For easy application, use with Prescriptives Round Buff Brush. This short-handled brush easily grabs hold of powder foundation and effortlessly glides across your face.
- 18 shades
- Suitable for all skin types
- Sweat and humidity resistant
- Water resistant
- Dermatologist tested
- Ophthalmologist tested
- Minerals, including Calcite and Mica, and semi-precious gems, including Amethyst and Rose Quartz, provide luminosity and a lightweight feel.
- Squalane and Lecithin provide skin conditioning benefits.
- Silica helps keep skin shine-free.
- Contains antioxidant 2CME, a molecule that combines Vitamin C and E which boosts their effect.
- Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide provide broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 15 protection.
Usage: Tap a small amount of All Skins Mineral Makeup SPF 15 into the lid. Swirl the Round Buff Brush in the lid and tap away excess. Apply in a circular motion:
- Start application at the outside of the cheekbone, moving toward the nose and then back.
- Continue from cheekbone downward to jawline and back.
- Follow along the side of the face, forehead and down the nose.
- Repeat for more coverage.
