TALC FREE FRAGRANCE FREE PARABEN FREE"
I almost never use powder foundations due to the fact that my skin is very dry and powders tend to dry it out even more. With that being said, I was very happy to find out that the Studio Gear Cosmetics Dual Identity Wet and Dry Mineral Foundation could indeed be used wet! Especially since the formula is totally safe for sensitive skin. it is talc-free, fragance-free, and paraben-free. I have used other Studio Gear products in the past and the quality is great. The color I chose is called Natural and the match was really good (see pictures below). As soon as I mixed the foundation with the serum, the consistency was very easy to apply and blend with my skin. However, the product does dry out quickly so you will need to blend pretty fast. Now as far as the brush, it is a nice quality brush but I do prefer to use my beauty blender when creating the wet mixture. Overall I can recommend this foundation for both dry and oily skin.
