To start off, I'd like to talk about my skin. I'm an NC15 (fair skin) and I find the combination of Northern Light and Atlantic Bisque was a good match for me. I also have oily, acne-prone, blemished skin.
I found that the coverage of this foundation was build-able. You can easily obtain a full coverage. It really covers my blemishes, redness and acne. There is quite a wide range of colors and undertones so I can imagine it is easy to find the right shade by getting the samples to try out, which is reasonably priced. The price of the full size foundation was very reasonable as well at $25 for 10g of product. This foundation gave me a nice sheen and glow. The ingredients are good and non-irritating to the skin. I really liked the ingredients because there were no parabens and other bad ingredients.
The downside of this foundation was that it did not control oil and I got really oily after a few hours of wearing it. When I tried blotting my face, the foundation came off. It's as if the foundation was melting off. The packaging wasn't anything special. It comes with a sifter and a jar with a lid. It is a bit messy to apply just like any mineral foundation powder.
I would not repurchase because it does not suit my oily skin and it does not wear well after several hours.

Pure Anada Mineral Foundation is the first mineral make-up I've found that I can use easily, get good results and that doesn't itch or irritate my face. It doesn't settle in my fine lines and doesn't cake either.
Pure Anada is made in Canada and uses natural ingredients. It is fairly economical as a 10g pot is only $25 CDN and will last several months. They have a pretty extensive array of foundation colours. They offer samples of all their mineral make-up, so you don't have to waste money trying to find your shades. Soft Wheat was a perfect match for me.
I can get a light or full coverage depending on how much I apply. The key to using this with mature skin is to make sure your skin is well hydrated. I use a good moisturizer first, then wait a minute for it to sink in, then apply the mineral foundation using a flat top brush in a buffing motion, just like you do for other mineral foundations.
Made in Canada
Natural Ingredients - no bismuth oxychloride (I have added the ingredient list to this review)
Good value for $
Packaging is uninteresting and I thought the pot was a little small for handling a large buffing brush.
You really do need a good brush to get good results with this
Overall, I'm very impressed. I thought I couldn't wear mineral make-up but this changed my mind. I really like wearing this. It doesn't feel like I have anything on, but my skin looks fantastic. I actually WANT to put this on everyday, even on "lazy Sundays," and that's really saying something!
