I have recently found my love for mineral makeup, I am building my collection and finding new products and brands every day.I am loving the fact that mineral makeup are not harmful for my sensitive skin 
When i was checking out coastal scents and saw diva defense primer, I lingered over getting this product for a awhile. It took me some time well actually 2 days to decide whether to get it or not.

This is the first loose powder primer I've tried.The primer itself is fine and silky( if you have used ELF H.D powder you'll know what i am talking about). You can feel a real difference in your skin texture after applying.The primer itself is fine and silky.
When i got it I thought I would mostly use it under my mineral foundation, but then I decided to try it with liquid foundation.
Tip :please don't use a lot  Because it will leave your skin ghostly white if not used correctly!! 
 When I first used the diva defense powder as a primer (over moisturizer and under foundation)
Even in pictures, my skin just looks so smooth .It minimized my pores.
How to Use:
Method 1:(recommended)
Apply this powder evenly with a very good quality kabuki brush, and wait like few mins to let  this powder "set in"( about 1-2  minutes )before applying your foundation.I usually blend gently in circular motions. You only need a little bit of powder, a little goes a long way, the 30 gr sifter jar will last forever.
 My Preferred Method 2:
I apply my liquid  moisturizer and foundation as my usual routine and then I put it on top of liquid foundation as it acts as kind of a veil for me.I love taking my pictures and it made my pictures looks extra smooth and my face was had airbrushed look.

It blends with any skin color when used under makeup.I'm medium brown so I was little skeptical while applying it as its white but it blends in well with any skintone

You can buy it online from coastal scents  for $14.95/ 8 gm in 30 gr sifter jar and samples for $2 for 1/2 tsp

Have you tried it ? whats your preferred method of using diva defense primer?
