What a wonderful foundation! I fianally found one that does not aggrevate my sensitive, oily and acne prone skin. The sales person matched me up with the color, golden glow. I was a MAC, NC25,NC30 or C2. I am so happy about this especially after so many disappointing years of hunting for the best foundation for my problematic skin.

Worth every penny of the $50 I paid for it. Opaque enough to work as a concealer, very natural looking and matte. It just makes my skin look polished and fresh. I use it with BE concealer and foundation brushes. This wouldn't necessarily work if you have a lot of breakouts, but as a light foundation it's perfect. I've used BE, Urban Decay, Philosophy and Jane mineral foundations, as well as Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer (also awesome and beautiful looking, although it breaks me out if I use it too much)and powders and Bobbi Brown stick foundation. For my normal, sensitive skin and occasional breakouts, this is the best thing for making my skin look great.

I love this product. It is just like bare minerals but less messy and lasts much longer...also more practical to carry in ur purse! It covers great, doesn't irritate existing acne or encourage new ones. The only draw back it the crapy applicator it comes with. I always end up buying a new one from the mac counter...I think even covergirl comes with a better applicator.

I have acne-prone skin and love this foundation because it doesn't make me break out. And the ability to apply more heavily in some areas and lighter in others is terrific! For those of you who do not have oily skin, try the Amazing Base LOOSE Powder (which made me glow like a light bulb -- in a bad way). But what I really want to share with everyone is that if you are unsure about shade, you can buy sample sizes on ebay for about $5. I tried 3 colors before I found the right one. That would have been impossible at $48 each.

I started out really liking this product, but after using it for a year I developed a bumpy rash on one side of my chin. I have had several bouts of perioral dermatitis, so figured it was related to that. After I switched to Alima,(which I like much better) the rash went away. JI is easier to use, but I won't use it again.

I can honestly say that my make up hasn't looked better since I've started using J.I. I have the pure Pressed Minerals SPF 18 in Light Beige, plus brush. (Went into a local salon which stocked Jane Iredale and tried some products on) I found that the pressed powder suited my skin (combo) much better than the loose powder.Many thanks for all the rave reviews about mineral make up. I'm a real convert.Nell

I love, love, love, this makeup. It makes my skin look fresh and natural as if i wasn't wearing any makeup. I get compliments a lot. I like it because it gives you as little and as much coverage as you want and you don't have to use a liquid foundation with it. I don't like to layer my face with tons of makeup. This product does all I need. I am very surprised I found something I really like because I am very selective. Yeah, the price is high, but well worth it. You get what you pay for most of the time.In the past, I have tried everything you can think of; I tried sheer cover, bare escentuals, youngblood, mineral basics, mineral concepts, skin blends, etc.. no other makeup comes near Jane iredale, at least for me. My search is over. Perfect for my skin color. I use Golden Glow in the pressed. If I want a velvety look I use Biodroga Basic Moist Mask after my moisturizer and my skin looks great. This was a tip my cosmetologist gave me. People don't know it could be used this way. She learned the tip in a class she attended in Germany. Good luck with finding your perfect foundation.

This is the only product in my makeup bag that I think I wouldn't be able to live without. I have a very oily t-zone and most regular foundations make me break out (even though I usually don't break out). I have a really uneven skintone and broken capillaries and I also have red cheeks, so I need something that covers that up. The JI pressed base is perfect for this. I get beautiful, smooth and even skin and it looks so natural. Since it comes as a pressed powder it is also very easy to apply, just a few downward strokes with my beloved JI handi brush, and I am done. BTW this is referring to the old formula, I haven't tried the new one yet, but hopefully that one will work for me as well.

I've been through many many different kinds of mineral foundation and up until I found this magical powder. I hadn't found something that could effectively cover my dry, blemished skin well enough to be a staple. BE, Aromaleigh, Physicians Formula, Neutrogena and Urban Decay; none of them were perfect. Jane Iredale has proven to be easy, clean and manageable. No mess all over the vanity, no spilling and most importantly NO BREAKOUTS! Yeahhh! I will buy this again when I run out but so far I've had my pan for 6 months and while it has a dip, there is tons of product left. One thing I have to say is that locating this product was tough for me. I wanted to try on shades before buying so was hesitant about buying online. After much searching I found JI at a salon local to me. Unfortunately they were out of my shade so it took me almost 3 weeks to get my purchase. But overall its definitely worth it. Also you MUST use this with the Handi Brush. It makes a huge difference and its so soft and perfect for application. If youre at your wits end with Mineral Makeup--give this stuff a try and you'll look no further!
