Beauty expert Nurse Jamie Sherrill recently road tested three mineral makeup products, from the pricey La Bella Donna to an inexpensive Maybelline brand.
Nurse Jamie recommends using mineral makeup since it can have natural ingredients. She explains, "Mineral makeup is derived from rocks that are micro-pulverized to create a powder with an incredibly smooth consistency. A good mineral makeup will have an amazingly short list of ingredients that are all natural and beneficial for your skin."
Sherrill tested the water solubility of three brands by placing a pinch of powder in a cup filled with regular tap water. The less they dissolve, the more resistant they are to water, which means the makeup will last longer on your face.
