I love Everyday Mineral Base in Olive Medium (Matte) alot because the shade fits my skin colors perfectly. Any picture of me with that base looks natural without horrendous white cast. I could heart it to the max if only it wouldn't cause clogged pores and make me face oilier than usual.
About 5 weeks ago, I went to Clinique counter to get their 3-step skin care. During consultation, the sale assistant point out the my skin clogged pores. I never really noticed it until that time, and after that, when I look at the mirror and properly have a look at it, I got a nasty surprised. There were too much clog pores on my skin, and no wonder I break out a lot lately.
After that, I switch to BB cream for foundation and sometimes use the EM base on top of the BB cream. Doing that helps prevent more clogged pores, and after a month, it is significantly reduced.
I'm glad I found a way to make the base works for me.
p/s: combination of EM base and ELF mineral booster is greasy disaster!
