I have been using this powder off and on for a few years now. I have tried other powders and products that I have liked (Physicians Formula, MAC) but I keep coming back to this one because it is affordable, reliable, and it doesn't cause breakouts. It doesn't last all day and it often is not enough coverage if you have any scars or blemishes whatsoever, but it feels clean on the face, keeps my oil in check for the most part, contains SPF, and is a perfect color match for my skin. I'm a C4 and I use Natural Beige. I just discovered Physician's Formula BB Cream and started using that as a primer and then use a bit of the bb cream concealer wand on problem areas and finish with a light dusting of this powder and it looks better than anything I have ever used. My skin literally glows all day long. If I were just rating this product alone, I would give it a lower rating, but I don't think you will find many powders that can be worn alone, unless it is Studio Fix or unless you have perfect skin. I would recommend this to other peeps with oily or sensitive skin with the caveat that you should probably try a foundation underneath or a bb cream if you don't like wearing a ton of product on your face.

Meh. As the name suggests, it is a sheer foundation. I no longer use it as a foundation, only as a setting powder, for which it serves it's purpose.
I have this in tan, which is a little dark for me. This powder lasts about 5 minutes after I apply it. You will have to reapply it whenever you walk outdoors. It even has low staying power when indoors. It lasts maybe 4 hours then starts losing the minimal coverage that it already had :( I won't be buying this again, because I'd like my makeup to last the entire school day. I'm sick of skipping lunch block because I need to touch up on my makeup.

Just bought this today---will try for a week and give a better review- but so far i can already tell that its a product that i will hate to love, you know? like the packaging idea is super smart and fast to just chuck in your purse for on-the-go. Also it takes awhile for the product to actually show and when i do brush it on my face I'm not sure if it goes on my face, into my nose or in the air. Also i bought this dirt cheap for about 3 bucks at target bc they were having a red tag sale in those bins

I like this a lot, it covers very well and I like the sponge that it came with. Bought Wal Mart brand sponges to use rather than a big powder brush I normally use. My only complaint is that the powder doesn't stay on too well. I just ordered some Mac Fix + to see if it will take away some of the light powdery look and make it stick a little better...

UGH!! I am soooo disappointed in this product. I'm talking about the mineral sheers COMPACT, not the stuff with the brush. This was really disappointing beacause a.) I spent $11.99 on it. At Meijer (grocery store in my area)!!!!!! ICK! b.) I LOVED the stuff with the brush, I just didn't like the brush. That stuff was sheer, yes, and light, and had lovely little shimmers in it that made my skin GLOW. It matched so well, I was so impressed, I always felt so beautiful! So, I decided to get this one instead, because then I could use my own brush. But no! First of all, this was disgusting, not sheer! I was chalky and made me look pasty instead of glowing and smooth. It really brought out my dry spots, too. Other foundations, seemed to agree with my skin more, they would soak up oil in some spots and cloak my dry spots, but surely not this stuff. I guess it would be great if i was a REALLY oily person, but I'm not.
Also, it blended worth crap! Even with the brush on the other one I could suffice enough, but not this, it just got cakey. It was nasty. I will NEVER repurchase, and continue looking for a good foundation. This one surely is not it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I returned this product mainly because I didn't like the brush...the foundation itself wasn't bad. The brush was scratchy, which made it un-worth it to keep it. I wanted to like it b.c it was convenient and I like mineral foundations, but I already have BE and other brands which were worth the price.

This product is okay for those days when you don't feel like wearing foundation (like going to the beach, running errands on a Saturday morning, etc). It's very sheer and yes, it's a bit difficult to dispense onto the brush. It does give my skin a glowy look, though. I'd probably say it's a C+ product. I buy it when it's on sale.

I'm just gonna echo what most of the reviews are. This stuff doesn't even stay on my face. Most of it goes out into the air. I use my powder brush to try to spread it around and cover more It doesn't seem like a fine powder that'll go on "sheer", it's just like...powder that comes out and once you run your brush over it, it comes off. I was so disappointed. I won't be buying this again.

I wanted to love this, but I don't. The powder itself is just so-so...and the idea that the brush is connected is good in theory, however I was practically having nightmares thinking about how dirty it was getting and all of the bacteria growing in it because you can't clean it. Also the powder doesn't come out very well. Definitely not worth $10 and I won't be buying this again. :(

I have the Honey Beige 70. I really like it! As a first time powder user, I'm impressed. I'm looking for other powders to see, but I'm cool with this one.
Pros: It matches my tone perfectly. It gives me a flawless, youthful look. It is just fantastic with its packaging with a mirror and little pad with it! Very convenient. It made my skin glow more and I think it's helping the coloration after as well as my tone. It makes my skin feel brighter and lighter. It covers my scars at first, BUT...
Cons: This stuff comes off so easily. The WIND could take it off. After a few hours, you have to reapply all over again, because it fades or comes off, and my acne scars show so bad, AND when you DO apply it, it looks all fake and powdery and chalky.
(It does say 'lightweight'. I'm not a fan of 'lightweight'.)
Overall, if you have awesome skin and want to make it awesomer, don't mind that it sheds over everything, don't mind it fading so quickly, like to primp and powder your face up, and improve your skin's clarity, tone, and texture: get this! Otherwise don't! Until I find a better foundation to wear under it, I'll buy it again because I like it. (Don't let the 'cons' say that I don't. I'm just saying stuff I don't like about it.) It's a pretty neat product anyways. I don't breakout with it and it actually helps my acne. I recommend it. :-)
EDIT!!! LOOK OVER HERE!!! This is horrible. It got all dewy into a foundation. It starts off powder, then goes to a clumpy, unusable foundation after a month. GROSS. Goes on horribly. Won't buy it again. Disappointing.

I didn't have a problem with this going on my face funny.. the package/brush worked out just fine for me. I like this over liquid foundation every once in a while, but it's not something I use 24/7.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
Horrible, horrible stuff!! Please don't buy this. The packaging is terrible and the powder goes on in clumps and looks awful! I even poured the contents into a different package and tried using it with one of my own brushes but it's still totally unsuitable for the face and there has to be better mineral powders out there! I got sucked into buying it because of a 2 for 1 offer and I wish I hadn't wasted my money

No, no, no.
I got duped into buying this during a recent foray into mineral makeup. I think it must have been the semi-cool packaging that suckered me in, as I have always managed to steer clear of Neutrogena foundations in the past....now I remember why!
This offered no coverage, leaving my skin dry and extremely blotchy looking. Also somehow managed to make my microdermabraded, freshly scrubbed, exfoliated, and moisturized skin look extremely ROUGH, which is never a problem for me.
This will be going back to CVS for sure.

Its okay when used OVER a liquid foundation.

1. Horrible Packing, great idea though!
2. Can barely get makeup out.
3. Brush is soooo rough on my skin.
4. Coverage is no good.
WILL NOT BUY AGAIN

The color was beautiful on my skin. However. The brush was rough, the entire thing was messy, the cap always came off in my purse, and the product made my skin break-out! Happy having finally found the perfect shade-- this product made me very thoroughly disappointed.

This is the worst foundation I have ever tried. It left my face shiny and muddy.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Black
On the plus side, this product does not have talc in it, which other drugstore brand mineral foundations do contain. The shade is also quite nice and sheer, which I like. Also, the packaging (while it takes some getting used to) is very portable. On the down side, has anyone noticed that this product does not claim to offer any SPF? Other mineral foundations (mainly non-drugstore brands) seem to offer this, so I would've felt better if this product could provide this. I know it's ideal to wear sunscreen under mineral/powder products anyway, but for days when you're in a rush, it would've made me feel better to know I could just use this and go.

This is the worst mineral foundation I have ever tried and I've tried alot! The powder goes on unevenly.......it does not even go on as good as a powder compact....just awful do not waste your money like I just did!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Medium Hair: Red Eyes: Brown
I LIKE THIS PRODUCT, ITS SHEER BUT ENOUGH COVERAGE FOR ME. IT ALSO DOESNT BREAK MY SKIN OUT. THE PACKAGING WAS A GREAT IDEA GONE BAD BUT NOT HORRIBLE. I LIKE NOT HAVING IT ALL IN ONE SHOP BECAUSE ITS CONVEINT. THE CAP DOES BREAK EASILY AND THE BRUSH DOES GET A LIL ROUGH AND SOMETIMES I HAVE TO PICK "HAIRS" OFF WHEN IM DONE APPLYING BUT FOR THE PRODUCT AND PRICE ITS A GOOD DEAL IF YOU CAN TOLERATE THE PACKAGING. HOPEFULLY THEY WILL UPGRADE THAT PROBLEM. USUALLY I PURCHASE THESE WHEN THEY ARE BUY 1 GET 1 FREE...OR BUY 1 GET 1 50% OFF
