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.

Additional Benefits:

  • 18 shades
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Oil-controlling
  • Sweat and humidity resistant
  • Water resistant
  • Non-acnegenic
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Ophthalmologist tested

Technology:

  • 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.

  1. Yay! I can’t wait for this. I love Prescriptives and I love mineral makeup! Thanks for the heads up!

    This looks nice, but I also have recently fell in love with Mary Kay’s loose mineral makeup as well.

    They do samples right? I’ve sampled a few mineral foundations and so far my fave is Urban Decay (i might be a little biased, I love their stuff! but their color matched me *wonderfully*), the rest tend to break me out. Ulta is a close second, I want to try them all!!!

    • I can’t tell you I know, haven’t had the chance to ask for a sample… I wouldn’t be surprised, though. (At least at the counter!)

    ugh that canadian price tag is not appealing at all.

    Ohh I tried this today at the Prescriptives counter. I luckily found a perfect match for my skin and it looked so flawless! The brush is also amazing…they were having a promotion where the brush has a special price of $17. Alas, but I had already spent a bunch of $$$ at the MAC counter earlier that same day…

    Definitely recommend it tho =]

  6. I purchased Prescriptives new Mineral make up and was able to get the promotional brush they had for 17 versus 30. Very cool. I really like this make up. It feels so good and is quick and easy to use. I can’t wait for them to come out with more products like this. My skin has not looked this good in years.
