GOSSAMER Variable Coverage Mineral Foundation

$2.25

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE IF YOU'RE AN AROMALEIGH V.1 FOUNDATION USER! Before ordering full sizes of colors you used pre-2011, we recommend that you try samples of the new formulas. The ingredients changed, and due to this colors may not apply the same. We maintained the same color naming system as a rough guideline, so that you would not need to completely start over again in a foundation color search. This does not mean that the colors are exact to the old formulas.


If you used Voile 2C, Gossamer 2C may or may NOT be a match for you. We do not guarantee that the new formulas match exact to the old formulas, in other words.

Please try samples first! There are no returns on full sized jars.

What is "Gossamer"? Gossamer is the reformulation of the Aromaleigh v1 foundation "Voile". The shade matching system of Voile is maintained in Gossamer foundation, so that previous users of the Voile powder do not have to completely restart their search for a foundation color match. (Samples are still recommended if you previously used Voile due to the new formula)

Gossamer is ideal for all skintypes, and is our most popular mineral foundation formula. You can apply it with a fluffy brush for light coverage, or achieve a more moderate coverage by applying it with a kabuki brush or a flocked sponge.

It is finely milled and silky and contains Zinc Oxide, for full spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Gossamer also utilizes advanced light-dispersing and skin-smoothing pigment technology.

GOSSAMER looks just like you'd expect any mineral foundation to appear- a fine, loose powder... however, when you begin to apply it, you begin to feel a smooth, silky feeling on your skin... application is effortless... the powder melds with your own skintone yielding the appearance of perfection. It's "Your Skin... Only Better".

Not sure where to start, or what color to order? Scroll down, and you'll find a range of links full of helpful information to help you learn more about mineral makeup, determining your skintone, and if applicable, the closest match for you in Aromaleigh if you're a BE user.

All shades shown in the swatch chart are available for purchase in samples and two jar sizes. Not all of the entire shade range from the Aromaleigh v1 foundation range is available. Pink (P), pink linen (PL) and most of the deep-dark shades have been eliminated due to low sales.

We use only pure, refined, and finely milled cosmetic-grade minerals in our formulations. Our loose mineral cosmetic face powders are light, breatheable, and provide natural barrier protection from the sun. You'll find it hard to believe that something this lightweight could provide such excellent coverage, but that's thanks to the nature of our ingredients. In particular, silky mica powder. This mineral covers your skin in a micro-thin layer, reflecting light, flattering your face and reducing the outer appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


Both Dewdrop and Gossamer also offer excellent coverage and skin adherence, and an extensive color palette.
