Covergirl Trublend Minerals Loose Powder Mini Review and Swatches

~$9 at Walmart, Target, CVS, Ulta, Rite Aid and Walgreens

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Get a natural looking glow in an instant! Natural minerals in TRUblend Minerals Loose Powder give a naturally luminous look for a soft, even-toned, fresh complexion.

Light, finely milled, loose powder
Enriched with natural minerals
Shaker-top jar for easy application”

The bottom of the jar itself says

“Use alone or over liquid makeup for an instantly natural looking healthy glow.”

 

Covergirl, you said “glow” and “luminous”, not sparkly!
The packaging can be misleading.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(The color is a little dark as you can see.)

Ok, so in normal light it’s not exactly sparkly but it is shimmery.  It does pretty much make your skin look glowy.

If you get in strong light, well then you’ll look like a glitter bomb.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The packaging is pretty standard for a loose powder, but the lid is a bit of a problem.  The lid doesn’t screw on, you just lift it off basically.  While I’ve never had a problem with it, I bet it could spill everywhere if you travel with it.

Pros
Does give a subtle glow in normal light
Comes in 4 shades
Decent with oil control

Cons
“Minerals” label is misleading
Packaging
A lot of shimmer, if you can’t deal with it

Overall
6/10
