Neutrogena Mineral Makeup Foundation {Grail or Fail}

this week's grail or fail is courtesy of the original makeup guru, my SIL. we've spent a lot of time in the car together this week and one of our conversations was discussing the cost of department store brands vs. drugstore brands and whether or not they were comparable products.

one of Lindsay's favorite product that comes from the drugstore is Neutrogena Mineral Sheers. now this is the woman who introduced me to Bare Minerals several years ago and has a MAC collection that would make anyone drool. so when she recommends a product, i take it seriously.

the Neutrogena Mineral Sheers is a comparable product to the Bare Minerals loose powder foundation at a fraction of the cost. the coverage is not equal, but close enough to make it worth it. one suggestion she made to me was mixing it with your Bare Minerals foundation to make the product go a little bit further. pretty brilliant. if you are in the market for a new foundation that is fuss free, i would give this one a try. according to Lindsay, it's a Grail.
