Review: L'Oreal true match mineral foundation

After trying out a few different posts recently I have decided to treat you to a more traditional post.  A good old review of a product I have been loving!

I have never been a massive fan of mineral makeup and it's hardly the highstreet's strong point but after giving this baby a go, I don't think I will ever look back.
I presume I am not the only one who puts on their base at 7, half asleep with poor lighting and then after a few hours of working in fairly warm conditions looks in the mirror to find a slightly shiny, un-perfected face.  Only me?  This is where mineral makeup plays a key role!  Powders naturally combat shine and the foundation part gives you that extra coverage you might need to blur everything out.  This foundation doesn't come with the common 'cakey' misconception associated with mineral makeup but provides a natural coverage.
I now always keep this in my makeup bag (or 'pouch' as I like to call it) for midday touch ups or to add a bit of extra coverage when I need it.

The little brush does come in very handy when you are in a tiff, albeit a little scratchy but I just take another one with me anyway (more specifically, the real techniques buffing brush).

This foundation is 95% minerals and perfume and preservative free, making it ideal for every skin type.  However, it makes it a little pricer than your average highstreet foundation at £15.

A quick warning: Don't apply this on top of your foundation as a powder straight away!  It leaves it looking really cakey.

Have you tried this?  What is your opinion on mineral makeup?
