La Mav Mineral Foundation - Review

August 16, 2014

"All products in our Anti Ageing Minerals™ line are infused with Vitamin C and Rosehip Oil providing proven anti-ageing benefit while also nourishing and protecting your skin from free radicals!"

I was recently sent this mineral foundation from La Mav... and instantly fell in love!

Firstly, I was really impressed by the coverage and I continue to be impressed by the lasting power and finish of this lovely powder.

La Mav offers a small selection of shades but one colour seems to fit quite a few different skin tones.

Judging from the pictures of the models on the website I chose light/medium and luckily it was a perfect match! (That never happens for me!)

The packaging is great, I love the twist and lock cover over the sifter and the simple and elegant dark lid with rosey gold writing. 

This Anti-ageing Foundation (SPF 15) costs AUS $34.95 which is about £19.35 which I think is very reasonable and I'd happily purchase this myself. (And you know how tight I am!!)

La Mav passed my 'cruelty free test' with flying colours, they confirmed that they do not test, they don't third party test and they aren't owned by a parent company that tests. Not only did they answer my questions but they seemed eager and very happy to do so - always a great sign of a company that has nothing to hide and is proud to be cruelty free.

I find this very easy to apply. It gives me a beautiful 'air brushed' finish, making my skin look flawless without any heaviness, caking or even any evidence that I am wearing foundation at all. It does very well to hide blemishes and discolouration.

I find that this lasts all day for me, even in the recent heat we have been having. It doesn't feel heavy, settle into lines or onto hairs it is very lightweight considering the coverage it offers.

I am really happy with this foundation and I am so glad I tried it, could I even possibly consider it a holy grail? Maybe not just yet but I would certainly recommend it without hesitation.

I wrote to La Mav to tell them how happy I was with the foundation, singing it's praises! The lovely people at La Mav have kindly offered my readers/followers/viewers/friends a discount code to use if you like, no financial (or otherwise) compensation to me, just a great offer for you!

If you want to you can use: AllNaturalAspirations at checkout to get $10 off and free shipping! How cool is that?! Thank you La Mav! 

So, there we have it a very quick overview of why I love this foundation and a cool coupon code for you.

  10. Unfortunately international shipping [excluding Australia, New Zealand and USA] is $49.99, even with your coupon code. I was going to order it, as your review sounds great, but now I am going to give it a miss :(.

  11. I love finding out about new mineral foundations and this one sounds amazing! x

  12. Gosh really?! I did not realise that, I have to be honest! Sorry you've had to miss out, that really is a bit steep. Rach x

  13. It really is, I am so impressed by the coverage. I loved the sound of your current one... Inika isn't it? I think it sounds great! :-) xx

  14. It should be live now but someone told me it doesn't work for international shipping :-(
