 Lucy Minerals is a small company based in Florida that specializes in loose mineral products. They are handmade products that contain no parabens, mineral oil, petroleum or bismuth oxychloride. They also are cruelty free! In my experience, they have great sales and customer service.

I've been using Lucy Minerals for about 2 and a half years on myself, so I know the product very well. I've also used it on older, oily skin with large pores as well. Scroll down to see before and after pictures.

Their most popular product is their loose mineral powder foundation. It conveniently comes in four formulas to cater to your skin type.

Formulas:
  • Original formula
  • Oil Control Formula with Calcium Carbonate
  • Oil Control Formula with Silica
  • Lucy Light which has none of the antioxidants that the other formulas have.
My Skin Specs:

  • Pale with neutral undertones and some redness (Mac NC20/NC15/NW13)
  • Dry/normal cheeks and oily t-zone
  • Very acne-prone when it comes to foundation
What I use:

Lucy Light formula
Pale Olive and Light Medium mixed together (they offer custom mixing but I did that myself)

How does it look on the skin?

This really can give full coverage! It's so creamy to apply. But if you go for a full coverage, I find it looks cakey and textured. Also, if you add too much, it will look lighter. It's hard to explain but this powder on the skin, at some angles can look more white. Maybe you can tell in the photo. Although the colour Pale Olive matched me well, it looked too light on my skin because of that lighter effect the powder gives. In flash photos, I look like a ghost! I needed to get a colour slightly darker and with some pink in it to mix with Pale Olive (so I did and it worked great). Blended out, when it soaks in with your skins oils, the colour will look good. On older, oily skin with large pores, I find this powder looks amazing. 

How long does it last on the skin?

I do notice in my t-zone, the product does disintegrate through the day. I'm talking about when i've applied this heavily. It will stay clung to micro dry patches and wear down in the spaces in between those dry patches. That happens only on my nose and sides of nose. Perhaps the oil control formulas help with that or the finishing powder. On the rest of my face, this stuff stays on! It doesn't even come off in the shower with water!

Did it break me out?



Yes, everywhere but my t-zone. It's not their fault, I break out to a degree from everything. I still use it, but not heavily all over my face. Only on spots and t zone. I think it's the titanium dioxide. It makes some people break out. But i'm really not sure if that's what it is.

How long does the product last?

FOREVER. Kidding. But really, this stuff took me over a year to finish with daily, full face use! You get far more than Bare Minerals for a fraction of the cost.

Who is Lucy Minerals good for?

I highly recommend Lucy Minerals to people that:

  • Don't break out easily
  • Have oily skin or large pores
  • Like powder foundation over liquid/cream foundation
  • Want a great, cheap alternative to Bare Minerals
  • Want a powder to match their skin
  • Want a powder to give you coverage
I think people with mature skin would really like Lucy Minerals because it's lightweight and looks amazing.
