Just discovered this and it is really good. As a previous user of bare minerals, this is just as good in my opinion, a hell of a lot less expensive and just as easy to use packaging - maybe even easier.
Some of the other mineral foundations I have used other than bare minerals have had poor packaging design which makes it impossible to transport, but this is great, I would even dare say better then the bare minerals.
And also for anyone with blemish prone skin I have had no breakouts! I was worried at less then half the price of the bare minerals the quality would suffer but it doesn't! Brilliant!
Highly recommended for those with acne prone or oily skin.
Also as a mum very quick and easy to use with great results.
I have also found I don't need to top up as much as the bare minerals during the day either!
General highlights: slightly glowing and shimmery, can control how much goes on, true to color |||||
This stuff is AMAZING. My favorite foundation, and I won't use anything else. Most powders give a chalky, matte sort of look, but this makes your skin glow with a very subtle shimmer. It's true to color and never look orange. It's slightly translucent, so you can apply as much or as little as you'd like, and they're easy to transition in between seasons with. It covers up flaws like pimples pretty well. It lasts a long time, but I apply a little more if I'm going out at night. They're great with Smooth Minerals blush and highlighter! Glowing skin that looks flawless.
Goes on well, good coverage. However, the ivory shade, which I assumed would be the lightest, is far too orange for my light skin tone. Also, it does itch a little :/. I would buy again if Avon release a shade that matches my skin tone, as this product is dirt cheap for a mineral foundation,
I guess that this product is for a highlighter than a foundation for me.. where am Im really not a girl who likes shimmery highlighters.. I dont like shimmer and this a pale shimmer.. I dont like it. maybe others will like it.. it is very soft on the good side, I think the packaging is alright. it's a screw top here in the uk, I wouldn't buy this product again or use it for the most but it would be good for a natural shimmer highlighter for somone who likes that look.. BTW!! for the coverage, it doesnt cover redness! just a heads up
My only complaint with this product is that it can be a bit clumpy or overly- shimmery if you use too much. The less of this product you use, the better it looks. It can give your skin a nice glow and the color "soft ivory" suits my skin very well. Easy to apply, and isn't too difficult to blend into the skin, if the color is right for you.
does not blend well. container comes open. needs to be finer milled. not a good product.
The container makes this messy, the loose powder gets all over, it makes my skin feel dry and its difficult to blend.
