I had the opportunity to review some products from Studio Gear Cosmetics. Have you ever had a foundation that can be used four ways? Studio Gear's Mineral Wet & Dry Powder Foundation can be used as a powder foundation, liquid foundation, setting powder, and a contour powder!
I tend to steer towards liquid foundations. I added Studio Gear's Revitalizing Day Serum to the powder foundation. I was able to achieve a matte finish with a light to medium coverage. I did notice one layer was just enough coverage. I added another layer out of curiosity, and experienced the foundation starting to look cakey. It could just be my skin's fault at this point, and not the foundation. The shade I received was "Natural." It was a good match for my skin tone. The foundation has 8 shades to choose from. It lasted about six hours. I was getting shiny around the five hour mark.

I haven't used powder foundation in a long time. I applied the foundation using Studio Gear's #3 domed foundation brush. It looked so natural on the skin! I preferred this over using it as a liquid. It gave my skin a matte finish. I also got shiny/oily around the five hour mark. I wish the foundation lasted a bit longer, but it's nice for a natural makeup day. There is a sifter, so you don't experience any messes. This also makes a good setting powder over a liquid foundation. The foundation is free of talc, fragrance, and parabens.
The brush made picking up product a breeze. I did experience shedding when applying the foundation, which is a tad upsetting. The brush does seem to be of good quality and has a sturdy handle. The brush can be found here for $40.
You can purchase the foundation here for $28.
