MINERAL FUSION Sheer Tint Foundation Swatches

Mineral Fusion Foundation Post MINERAL FUSION Sheer Tint Foundation Swatches

If you have medium-to-dark skin and want a light-coverage, dewey finish,  Mineral Fusion Sheer Tint Foundation ($29.95) is worth a look. It’s vegan, gluten-free, and paraben-free. Like all brands sold at White Rabbit Beauty, Mineral Fusion is Leaping Bunny-certified.

Currently, Sheer Tint only comes in three shades: Neutral, Warm, and Olive. They’re all close in color depth, ranging from medium to the light end of dark. Because this is such a light coverage formula, the colors are relatively versatile, but many people won’t find a match in this line.

The lightest shade, Neutral, was too dark and pink for me. I did try it once to get an idea of how it applies and feels, but removed it shortly after, so I can’t comment on wear time. The formula is thin and lightweight – liquid-y but not runny. It has more coverage than a tinted moisturizer but definitely falls in the sheer-to-light coverage range. It feels lovely on the skin, very hydrating, and the emolliance makes blending a breeze.

Mineral Fusion states this contains natural sun screen (the ingredients list includes titanium dioxide) but it’s not clear exactly how much sun protection Sheer Tint offers.

This is the sort of foundation I gravitate towards for everyday. Hopefully Mineral Fusion expands their color range.

    Hmmm so sad when light shades are pink, not every light person is piiiink! Why does that keep happening lol.

      Very true, and it’s not even that light! ♥

    Love a dewy finish! Not so great a shade range though.

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

      Yes, it’s really too bad. ♥

  • convenientbeauty

    The texture looks really good and the coverage is awesome for sheer foundation. *cough* Chanel Aqua Vita Lumiere doesn’t do anything for me, coverage-wise! You’re right. If there’re more shades in the line, they’ll be more user-friendly. Right now it appears to me that 3 tones are rather similar and have one depth. Great post Catherine! I need to keep this brand in mind.

      Thanks, Joanne! This is a foundation I would love to test out, so hopefully they do come out with more shades in the future! ♥

    Too bad the color range is so limited because the swatches definitely look good.

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

      Agreed! ♥

  • Memoiselle

    I love the dewy finish it has but I would love it more if they have more shades.

      I agree, the shade range is a big drawback ♥
