Not only is there a choice of colour, you also choose the formula to suit you best:
Original: a great full-coverage foundation with fantastic oil absorption and natural UV protection. ingredients: titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, mica, iron oxides, ultramarines.
Light: specifically for those who prefer a lightweight foundation that still offers buildable coverage and great oil absorption. ingredients: mica, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, iron oxides, ultramarines.
Concealing: made with a touch of kaolin clay offering even better coverage with greater oil absorption. Ideal for those with combination to oily skin and a great spot concealer. ingredients: titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, iron oxides, kaolin clay, mica, ultramarines
And while I like a powder foundation a lot, I find this loose type very messy - I'm well aware that I'm a slob! So if you are likewise gifted, do yourself (and your bathroom counter) a favour and pick up a sifter jar at the beauty supply store - the mesh top keeps your brush from picking up too much powder and making a mess!
