coverage: very light
Ideal for oily skin, because it will dry out dry skin (i have combo skin and this made the skin in my nose get flaky)
makes skin matte and has spf20 in it
overall I reallly like it its great for my oily skin since it was flaking me out a little
i put a good amount of moisturizer on to leave my skin feeling a bit oily..and then put the mineral powder on ..my skin feels smooth and shine free but moisturized...hope this helps
i use a kabuki brush to put it on ..i like it better that the sponge that it comes with..
I love this product. It's the best mineral sheer compact foundation I have ever used. When I apply it over a sheer tinted moisturizer my skin looks great. I also love the mineral sheers blushes and eye shadows. I have repurchased this product many times. My sister loves it too.
I love this product. If I use it with a kabuki brush, my skin looks amazing. I like it better than Bare Minerals.The only thing is that you have to put on a tiny bit or else it looks super cakey. I usually spray on moisture mist from Nuskin. That seems to help a bit. Overall a good product. I like the packaging.. It looks somewhat natural.lol:p
I actually really like this product. I have tried every single powder foundation known to man lol (Kanebo, Dior, Chanel, Nars, Estee Lauder, Benefit, Shiseido, etc.) and when my Benefit powder randomly broke, I decided to try a drugstore foundation in a pinch. Well, my first thought was that I was shocked by the amount of coverage it gave for a sheer foundation. While for some people it was not enough coverage, I also wear Estee Lauder Double Matte foundation underneath because I have such oily skin. I also find that it looks soo much more amazing when applied with a brush, as other posters have noted. The compact looks cheap, but hey, its not that expensive for a powder foundation, at least not in comparison to what i usually buy. I would definitely buy this again, and I also love that it has not made my skin break out. Two thumbs up!
I liked this powder a lot. Easy to blend and buff in, natural coverage that didn't look cakey, easy to keep adding layers for more coverage. It broke me out all over though =( Once I discontinued use the bumps all went away.
i just put this stuff on--its great! it really does make my face look airbrushed, as well as it covers up red splotches, acne, and scars really well! other powders make the above STAND OUT.
i don't know how it will look later on in the day when my face gets oily, but i will update this when i know. but so far, its wonderful! and well worth the money!
I had high hopes for this product but found that it's just way too sheer to offer any decent coverage. It really should be marketed as a powder & not a powder foundation, although I find it barely even takes the shine off my T-zone. I originally thought I had just not applied an adequate amount, but the more you brush on, the more it makes skin look chalky; it also highlights imperfections especially lines & any patches of dry skin. I prefer Cover Girl TRUblend Pressed Mineral foundation as it offers just the right amount of coverage, blends in much better & appears to be of a finer mill. (Unfortunately, I just saw on the CG site that they're discontinuing this product, FYI.) Anywho, if you're looking for any kind of semi-decent mineral coverage, I'd suggest you not waste your $$ on this product & instead try another brand. continued >>
OK, I am on the fence about this one. After trying probably every mineral makeup under the sun, I was pleasantly surprised by this drug store brand. I only bought this based on the recommendation here on MUA.
- The color! I have light to medium skin tone with slight yellow undertones and I bought this in natural beige. I have had the HARDEST time finding foundation that matches my skin and this matches perfectly. Really exciting for me!!!
- Doesn't break me out....well at least not yet. Ingredients seem to be ok and after a week of use (and getting over a horrible break out) this hasn't seem to irritate or create more
-Price tag! I've been using foundations with a price tag of $25-40.....so at $11, I cannot complain
-Pretty sheer (yes i know, hence the name). As I try to build up the coverage, it does tend to get a bit chalky. Hopefully as my skin clears up a little bit, this won't be a problem.
-Shows imperfections:defines my fine lines and pores if I apply too much. I use Clinique Pore Minimizer underneath it, so that helps, but I'm not surprised by this as every powder foundation does that to me
We'll see how this holds up as we enter the winter months. This may be too chalky for the winter, but we'll see. So far I do really like it, but I am still out to find my HG.
I have always used liquid or cream foundation because I thought they covered the best. I don't have terrible skin, but I do have occasional breakouts and uneven texture and some redness. I decided to try this powder foundation because it got good reviews. I really like it. It covers just as well as a liquid and doesn't cake up even when I touch up through out the day. The only thing I don't like is how expensive it is. But I am out of it and will definitely buy again. It's hard finding the perfect make-up for your skin tone so when I find something I like, I stick with it.
I have the shade in sand, and it is a perfect close match to my skin. The coverage is great and it doesn't look chalky on my skintone. The compact is very easy to slip into my bag and contains spf 20, which is very good, since I get red if I don't wear sufficient sunscreen. It doesn't break me out and layers well under my Oil of Olay moisturizer with spf 15. Compact is a bit cheap, but it at least contains a mirror and application sponge. It is way better at absorbing oil than my Mac mineralize powder and is much cheaper as well. Will repurchase again.
