Does Magic Minerals work?Magic Minerals is a foundation cover-up that is suggested for use by those with light to medium colored complexions. It is designed to cover over acne and other skin imperfections, while not causing any further outbreaks by clogging the pores. We all want to look our best in this image-conscious society, so how well does this work and can a beauty product be effective, and still be reasonably priced?

If you’ve tried mineral make-up before and ended up looking orange, or that you’re caking your make-up on in order to give yourself a new face, you might be a hesitant to try something like this out again. They insist that this is not the same sort of product, so you don’t have to worry about this making you look greasy, or giving you an older look. If you’ve got a big event coming up or you plan to use this every day, you’ll want to make sure that it lives up to what it says and really does give a natural look.

The Claim
When it comes to beauty products, the claims can get pretty outlandish. Magic Minerals manages to keep the over-the-top statements to a minimum, but they do put a lot on the shoulders of Jerome Alexander, whom they tout as an International Beauty Expert with 40 years of cosmetic experience under his belt. Among the claims are that this is an all-in-one product, which makes it very easy to use compared to the kits that have multiple products that you need to apply.

They also say that it’s translucent, so you don’t need to worry about it looking caked on or fake. They say it’s hypoallergenic so if your skin is sensitive or breaks out easily, it shouldn’t upset it or irritate it. It also acts as a natural sunblock, and doesn’t have any smell to it. It should last you through the entire day, and you don’t have to worry about color matching it, as they say it adjust to your skin tone automatically.

The Hype
Most of the hype that this product has received is due to the advertising campaign on TV. Since it’s a concealer and not a cure for any ailment, there might be a misunderstanding that this is helping the skin, or that it’s somehow beneficial other than a purely aesthetic fix. It should be pointed out that it doesn’t necessarily help your skin, even though it doesn’t claim to, it might be perceived as being something that will improve your skin or complexion for the long term.

The Cost
It’s $20 which includes shipping, and the package includes the Magic Minerals foundation, a brush to apply it, and a mascara as a bonus. Unlike a lot of products that you see for $19.95 they don’t pad the order total with shipping charges, and don’t charge you extra shipping for the bonuses, so they’re actually free. It really seems like they are trying to break the commonly held belief that cosmetics have to be expensive to work, or that cheap make-up means lousy results.

The Commitment
This is designed not so that it doesn’t take very long to apply, allowing it be used as part of your daily getting ready routine. If you currently have a system in place with lots of different steps, this will give you some of that time back. It also plays well with other make-up, so that after you apply it as a foundation you can put the finishing touches before you head out.

Sometimes with facial flaws it’s easier to just conceal them rather than heal them. It also can be a good strategy to treat the cause and cover up the symptoms until your efforts start to have an effect. For example, if you’ve got bad acne you might want to use a concealer in conjunction with an acne treatment so that you can have immediate results while your other methods take the time necessary to work.

The feedback on this has been mostly positive, with the majority of users saying that it works as advertised. When you consider that beauty products are notorious for getting moderate reviews, this is pretty impressive. There are big expectations put on cosmetics and the results that users get will typically vary. That’s why you’re basically going for a product that has a high likelihood of success based on overall user feedback and not just one or two testimonials or reviews, and this passes that test.

Final Magic Minerals Review

Magic Minerals is getting a Solid Try rating from us, as long as you fit the parameters that they recommend. They’ve done everything in their power to make this an easy decision, and even have a 30 day money back guarantee, and since shipping is free you don’t much to lose. For those with a darker complexion you might want to pass, because this only comes in one shade and is not recommended for darker tones. Since it is supposed to adjust to your skin, it can only go so many shades in any direction, making darker shades harder to match.

Our Recommendation
If you’ve got light skin, or even medium-colored, this is a definite Try as those that have these lighter shades have expressed the most delight with the results they get. It seems that most of the people that don’t give it a positive rating are those with complexions that just aren’t recommended for it, and therefore get less than desirable results.

  1. I was disappointed with this product it didn’t work for me at all. It didn’t cover anything and the color does not favor my complexion at all. It was truly a waste my money.

  2. Years ago I used Jerome Alexander under eye dark circle product. It cam in a very small jar with a screw on lid. It was called something like “wild iris eye or something like this”. Have not seen it in years. Does anyone know what the product was. I loved it. It did not crease, left my under eye circles looking so much better. HELP, if you know what this product was. I am thinking the under eye dark circle concealer in the lipstick tube is a better option for me. Back then they did not have the mineral products.

  3. This MagicMinerals is a scam and it is a waste of money. Don’t bother. What a bad product!

  4. I’m with you linda watkins i have the same complexion medium tan and i bought magic minerals and tried it and it made me look like i was ready to put on a act at a kids birthday party as the clown, so say who it’s really for please and people can stop wasting they’re money!

  5. I`ve been using this for several years & love the stuff , I used to suffer from acne rosacea but that has completely gone since using this as I am no longer clogging up my pores in an attempt to cover the bad skin. I usually buy it under the name of Italian mineral powder but now only see magic minerals OR mineral magic (all by Jerome Alexander so guessing it`s the same ? ) At one time there were 3 shades available which was great as O could change accoeding to the time of year & my tan. If I only have the lighter shade I just blend in some of the same brand bronzer or blusher.

  6. Why dont they make it for darker skin types we need to look pretty too. My skin is medium tan and i tried magic mineral it made me look like a clown. Ladies of dark skin type please dont waste ur time

  7. I purchased hundreds of $$$$ worth of Make up and Mineral Powders over the years. I have rosacea and fair skin, prone to allergic reactions. I am having the hardest time to find make up that actually looks good and is not caking up my face. I used Bare Minerals for years with great success, until they changed their formula and I was almost scratching my face raw!

    Anyway – all you girls out there with rosacea and very sensitive skin, know what I am talking about!

    I purchased Magic Minerals yesterday and tried it right away. It does not cover 100% – however – it covered the red spots enough without caking up my face. It actually gave my face a natural glow. I didn’t even have to use that much. I left it on over night, to see if I have any allergic reactions to it. Nothing!!! No reactions!
    I Love it!!!

  8. Unless you have very pale/pallid skin, then dont waste your money. It did absolutely nothing for my complexion only give it a matt look. In fact, I looked quite unhealthy, like I was ill or unwell.( I have a medium complexion) Perhaps the manufacurers should point out specifically that it isnt suitable for other skin types.

  9. I agree. You can’t get decent cosmetics for under $20.00 and with a money back guarantee, then you can’t lose with it. I have a light skin tone and many cosmetics out there that are supposed to be for light skin is still way to dark so I have wasted a lot of money on make up. I will give this a try to see if it works for my skin.

  10. With a reasonable 20 dollars price tag and with a 30 day money back guarantee, it’s pretty much win win no matter what happens. Actually, it would be sort of a waste time on my part if it doesn’t pan out, but I’m always willing to experiment with new cosmetics as long as the price is reasonable.
