Blah!! Money down the toilet. This is the worst foundation I've ever used.
I've applied this foundation on a couple of times and am not convinced by it. Even if I apply moisturizer right before applying the makeup I still end up with a very unnatural finish. My face looks pasty and dull, not natural and glowing like with other foundations I previously used. Nope, I won't recommend nor purchase this product again.
There are a lot of mixed reviews about this product. I haven't used it for a long time, so I don't know how I truly feel about about this yet. It does make my skin look smooth, but it can also make it look sort of cakey if I put it on drier areas or if I put on too much. I never liked loose powders because they're matte. But I wanted to try this since it was mineral makeup. This does soak up a lot of oil and shine so my skin tends to look dull. I like to have a bit of a glow (either from blush or a highlighter). The brush is kind of hard and makes it a little difficult to blend well. I also don't like the weird smell of the brush. I'll wash it soon but I don't know if that will get rid of the smell. I hear that the L'Oreal Bare Naturale Soft Focus has a softer and better brush, so I might try that next. EDIT: Still not sure what I think of this. I wish there was a closer match to my skin color. I found it hard to look for an exact match by looking at the loose powder through the bottle. That's one more thing I forgot to complain about. The bottle (if it's even called a bottle) is very bulky. It's definitely not something that you would want to carry around with you in a purse for touch-ups. I don't know how they can improve the packagining, but I just don't like it. Also, I've noticed that my makeup looks a little too fake whenever I use this. Don't know if it's because this stuff cuts the shine too much, if it's the wrong color for me, or if I'm wearing too much. Maybe I should just stick with liquid formulas. L'Oreal should make a liquid mineral foundation.
Arrrrrgh! HATE IT. I'm gutted though because it cost me £13.99! I've been reading recently about how mineral make-up is better because it won't clog pores, gives great coverage, is more natural etc so I was eager to try L'Oreal's mineral make-up. I chose the lightest shade possible, W1 and rushed home to try it out. What a let-down... this pathetic excuse for a foundation covered nothing, the brush and packaging were impractical and it looked like mud on me. I'm not even THAT pale. Don't waste your money on this (well the English version anyway).
I really like this foundation. Contrary to other reviews - I like the brush(!) and the ingredients don't irritate my skin. I've found that with a bit of oil control powder, this makeup lasts on my oily combination skin while Revlon colorstay active couldn't. Also, this product covers up red spots up amazingly and looks absolutely flawless, like I'm not wearing any make-up at all - it looks that natural.
I like this because it makes my face look very soft and matte. But, I have to moisturize before using it otherwise it emphasizes any dryness on the face. It also smells really bad, like burning hair and it is messy. It should definitely be way cheaper, I will only buy this when I have at least a $2 off coupon, I would never pay full price for it.
I use Bare Minerals and was in a jam with no Sephora near me so I went to Target and picked this up. Looks great in the bottle, but it STINKS! Minerial makeup is supposed to be natural, this was all blotched on my skin and even my husband asked what was all over me. Wonder if Target will let me return? Don't waste your $10
This "mineral" makeup is terrible. I do notice now that the first ingredient listed is talc (isn't that bad for skin) It also may contain Bismuth Oxychloride which can cause irritation to some. It made my skin breakout horribly so I wouldn't recommend it if you are acne-prone. Although I found the coverage with it very good it's not worth the breaking out. Never using this again!
This is the best MM I have tried yet. Long time BE user. I've also tried Sheer Cover, Bella Rose ,Tru Blend & Neutrogena. I am a brunette with fair/medium skin /dark blue eyes. I have been using BE for years and this certainly beats it hands down. First of all you have to dump the brush. My BE brush works great with this .The packaging is a little bulky because of the brush but it is better in a sense that you can carry it around W/O it going all over. I am a BE medium beige and with Bare Natural find the Buff Beige looks great and gives just a little more color to my fair/medium skin. I did start off with the Creamy Natural & was adding a bit of Nude Beige to it to lighten it up a bit ,but then moved to the Buff Beige, it has a slightly warmer color in it that looks perfect on me. This goes on Matte when you put it on but becomes dewier during the day. There is no sparkle in it like BE .I have now forgotten about my stashes of BE, this is now my new MM !!! .
I really hated this makeup!! It was hard to get coverage that I wanted - and they said a little goes a long way, but I always ended up making my face a powdery mess. It wore off in a few hours, leaving orangey blotches on my face and it looked awful. It was difficult to match my shade just right - too light or too dark. The price is high at around $15 ~ certainly not worth it. Won't buy again. I am still on the search for a perfect mineral makeup...
Yuck... I like mineral makeup usually but the Neutrogena one which everyone has complaints about still beats this one. I have dry/combo skin and this powder actually makes my skin appear oily, in about 2 hours. It also has a silvery cast, kind of like BE which I don't care for. Does nothing for the texture/finish of my skin. And the packaging is beyond poor. Scratchy brush and you can't apply this with its brush without covering your hand in powder. The small good - nice coverage. If you like a very glowy look, have drier skin and dump it into another container and throw the brush out it might not be a total loss. But I'm never going to work that hard to like a beauty product.
