I really like this product. Last weekend I stayed out in the sun and got a good tan, so I couldn't use my normal foundation, Bare Minerals, the next morning. So I looked through all my foundations and found this (I bought it a few months ago but never used it) and it matched my skin perfectly. It looks pretty good on my dry skin. It stays on almost all day, and I got many comments on how my face looked glowy.
EDIT: This stuff started breaking me out, so I went back to my Bare Minerals which cleared it back up! And I don't even have sensitive skin.
I can most definitely do without the brush as it's so scratchy, and it makes the packaging inconvenient. They could make the opening larger so I can get to the product out easier (especially if I want to use a larger brush). The actual product itself is ok - provides light coverage and can remove shine. I find it looks cakey if you try to build the coverage. The color range is pretty good too.
I buy this mineral foundation every months since 3 years(yes, i think) it's the best for my acneprone-sensitive-sometimes oily , skin. :) its like 15.99$ + tx. Most of the time i just wash my face, put moisturizer under my eyes, a little bit on my cheeks, and apply the mineral foundation, definitly a good purchase, since the time that i use it, i only have breakout when i try to put liquid foundation because i have no more powder, or sometimes when im into my period, and believe me, i haved in the past years big acne troubles that hurts a lot and makes me feel sad\frustrated, well, im so happy now, i give it 5 for sure.
not to great , leaves my skin dry and flakey looking . but its the best drugstore powder foundation u can get .
So far this is the best mineral foundation I've tried. and I've tried Laura Mercier, Bare Escentials, Neutrogena. It covers better than LM and BE and gives me a nice glow. I get compliments on my skin from using this stuff. If I apply too much of it though, my skin tends to become flakey.
I love this foundation! I have really bad acne, and this covers it up pretty well without looking all cakey and, for lack of a better word, makeupy. I use Soft Ivory which is the lightest shade. Unfortunatly it is about a half shade darker than my porcelain skin (which is why I gave it a 4 instead of a 5). So even though this stuff is dang expensive, it is much cheaper than foundations that are made especially for fair skin. If you are proudly pale and want a foundation that can easily be found in stores, I definitely recommend this!
An overall great product for my pale, oily complexion. The color match rocks, and it stays on all day while covering any redness I have.
LOVE the "Classic Tan" color.
Lightly applied, it gives a matte sheer natural-looking glow to skin year-round.
Put too much powder and it can be drying , and look caked on.
The lighter shades are a drier formula. Possibly to do with clay content.
(Make sure you clean your brush, if it cakes on your brush you won't get a smooth application)
I always put on a moisturizer before I use this. And spritz with rosewater/orangeblossom water to set it in.
Also another comparable product that's milled finer than this is the MineralPureMakeup "Instant Tan" ..
I love this stuff! It makes my skin look flawless, and soft ivory matches my tone perfectly. It keeps my face from getting shiny and I barely remember that I have it on the rest of the day... it lasts pretty long, too. Unfortunately in some countries in Europe they only sell 4 shades of this powder, so I have to get it shipped from the US... worth it though!
I love this foundation, my skin looks natural but smooth and poreless. But I took away 1 lippie because I think it's clogging my pore, most powder clog my pore anyway. But overall, it's a very good mineral powder.
