Bought it a long time ago but havent used it that much.. It makes me wanna throw up because the smell of the powder is really bad. And when I apply it on it kinda feels heavy and uncomfortable on the face...It dries out the face as well and after a few minutes after applying it on I feel like my face is covered with concrete.. once the powder is applied its really very visible and it makes the impurities on the face stand out even more..
So Im not pleased with this one at all.

I honestly am shocked.. I have tried just about every mineral foundation out there. BM is awful with color selection for me, I like Laura Mercier although I found the coverage very sheer, Jane Iridale was way to heavy feeling for me and then I found this. I put my concealer on first for my undereyes and anything else that needs xtra concealing and then this, I wore it 6 hours no streaking nothing still looked good and the color is right on... i am usually NC25 in MAC and the light shade in this is PERFECT... I honestly don't have any complaints...

I actually really like this product! I've purchased it a couple times in the past, and bought it again today at Rite Aid for 75% off! How could I pass it up? I do agree with some of the reviews-- yes, the packaging is misleading and in need of improvement... and no, it's also not a full-coverage foundation. But since I'm okay with that, I think it's perfect for what I need. I wear it lightly over my liquid foundation and I get a flawless, natural complexion (better than any drugstore brand I've tried!) I love the texture! It's very finely milled and almost creamy when you spread it across your skin. The coverage is buildable, though don't expect magic! This $3 powder is NOT going to make scars disappear, it just enhances good skin if you have it. Unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot of color variety. Most of the shades are slightly on the darker side and have yellow undertones. I've never noticed any orange discoloration at all.

Okay, I have to say, I wasn't expecting too much when I got this foundation. I found it in Target for $2.80, so I figured, why not? I've been using it everyday since I got it, and I like it. It doesn't give too much coverage but it's buildable. I've always been a liquid foundation girl and I just love how mineral foundations feel on my skin. Being so cheap, this foundation is great for its price. So try it out, there's nothing to lose except for a couple of dollars, and you might end up liking it like i did :)

this foundation is pretty great! i thought it would suck cause it was so cheap like 5 bucks. its really soft and it doesnt feel like your wearing make up at all it gives good coverage for me but i dont really have many blemishes to cover up so if you need heavy coverage i dont really know if this will work for you. it does have shimmer not a lot but enough for a luminous look. i have a medium skin tone and when i first bought it i got it in medium but it was too dark so i had to get light i dont think this will work for people with very fair skin it will might be too dark i dont really like the packaging, its pretty, but its big and it sometimes doesnt fit in my smaller purses the product itself is great :] im def. buying again

I bought this during the last BOGO at Walgreens. I had read some good reviews on it so I thought to give it a try. My color is Tan and it turned out to be a perfect match.
I was worried that it would end up looking chalky on me when I first applied it but instead, it looked creamy and flawless! It also covered my huge pores!
After wearing it for 6 hours with no touch-up, it didn't wear off and still kept my face looking flawless, aside from the usual oil on my nose. That was easily fixed by blotting with the papers.
I've used Bare Escentuals before and honestly, I see no difference between the 2 except in price. I'm going to continue to use this mineral foundation since I can get it during the BOGO sales!

I got this in both 'Fair' & 'Light', since I wasn't too sure of my shade and it was buy one get one free @ Rite-Aid anyway! :) I actually LIKE the packaging! It's very easy to shake a tiny amount into the lid and buff it on with a brush.
- super finely milled! even more so than Everyday Minerals or Bare Minerals!!! So lush.
- like a reviewer said below, VERY natural looking! Just like your skin, you can't even SEE where your makeup begins & ends! It's as though you were born with nice, soft skin.
- after applying it on, your skin feels VERY soft and silky! I never got this from EM or BM. So touchable!
- sheer, but buildable coverage... nothing beats BM in coverage, that stuff covered my ACNE SCARS! This foundation merely enhances your skin to make it look perfect, so unless you have great skin, this won't do much at all.
- package is misleading... it looks like you're going to get a lot, but once you open it,the actual sifter/opening is pretty low.
Overall, I would recommend this if your skin is nearly flawless and you just want a nice, natural, super soft powder to perfect your skin. I wouldn't buy it again since I need heavier coverage :)

I think this is about $4.99 at Rite Aid. It's kind of hard to find the right shade, so if you're not sure, get the lighter of two shades. It comes with an itty bitty puff that's completely worthless. Who would try to apply loose powder with a puff anyway? Toss that, and use a brush. I use a mini kabuki brush. The container is deep, so you can swirl and tap a brush without making a huge mess. The color was a decent match at first. I have a lot of redness and a couple post-acne dark spots that are a pain to cover up, and this didn't do anything for that. I had to put on a few layers of it before it covered them, which then made me feel [and look] like I was wearing a mask. The color oxidyzed to make me look like I went to get a cheap spray on tan, plus the redness came through, which just looked like a huge mess. The best part was when my boss commented about my skin looking a little "off". That was nice. Well, at least it wasn't a lot of money thrown in the trash.

This worked so wonderfully for me and the price is absolutely amazing. I got the Medium shade and I am NC35 in MAC. The shade is perfect for me. I love how this provides a medium coverage and doesn't make my skin look dry and cakey. It goes on silky smooth and I apply it with my POSH kabuki brush or a flat top buffer brush like MAC's 180. It is talc-free which is another plus. I got it for $6.96 at Wal-Mart in Canada. I highly recommend it. It is comparable to L'Oreal's Bare Naturale except this is slightly lighter in coverage and is also much cheaper.

I really wanted to like this foundation; I wanted something that would work for sweaty summer days. It went on easy, gave me enough coverage, and looked good, too -- natural, but better. Then after about a week of daily wear, a half a dozen big zits popped up on my chin, and a couple on my cheeks, where I almost *never* break out.
I'm bummed out, both because I liked this stuff, and because of how I look! I guess it's back to WnW tinted moisturizer, which doesn't break me out at all -- I'm just wondering how to keep it on in summer weather!

An unfortunate fail in my recent WnW omigawdthislineissogreatandsocheap quest. I was annoyed with this product upon first opening it... the packaging is extremely bulky and I had to remove the sifter all together b/c it is so deep set I could not get the plastic off of the sifter holes. The packaging gives the illusion that you get a lot more product than you actually do. Removing the sifter I was shocked at how little there actually was.
The shades are disappointing. All are extremely yellow based. I purchased the lightest one, and it is still too much on the yellow side. Application is that of any other powder foundation or mineral powder. However despite blending and blending and blending... I am still left with this sitting on top of my skin looking fake and mask like. In natural light especially my skin looks dry and powdery and gross.
This is my only in depth experience with loose minerals. I prefer compact minerals much more. I think this would work better for oilier skin.

I really like this product so far after a couple of trials. I have used a lot of mineral foundations and I find this the most natural looking, with the second being L'Oreal. This product is completely different from the others because it really sinks into the skin, as opposed to sitting on top, which I think is a problem that can sometimes give the chalky or mask look. It seeems to be very finely milled. The product doesn't give much coverage, but I don't really want a lot of coverage, just the look of healthy skin with a bit of glow (like from the outdoors, a place I rarely go) and the texture of my skin showing through to avoid the kabuki look. I had to mix two shades, 270 and 271, Fair and Light. I am somewhere in the NC15, NC20 range, but most NC20's are too yellow. Today is very humid and I have on a heavy layer of sunblock, so this could have looked bad and streaky, but it looks good.
The packaging is bad, I'll probably mix some in another container. I put it on with a brush. This could be a 5, but i'll have to try it out for a longer time to know.

I bought this foundation in Stage Light at a CVS. It was a little difficult to find the right shade since the names were like Stage Light and Close-up (not actual skin tone names), but I eye-balled it and luckily it was the perfect shade for my fair to light skin! I used my big fluffy face brush with it and it blended in perfectly! You can even use it as a minimal coverage concealer if you just dab a little on a spot! I would have given it a 5 for its good quality and value, but it did get a little chalky on my nose for some reason, even after I used my moisturizer. A few days later, I was at Walgreen's, they had the regular shade names (fair, light, tan...) and the container was the same except smaller (but it still had the same amount of product-I checked!), very weird! My mom got one in light and it is a little darker than my Stage Light. Stage Light is more of a fair tone. Although it confused me a little, Wet 'N Wild's confusing packaging and naming of this product did not even matter when it came to the product itself. Ultimate Minerals gave minimal to moderate coverage (depending on how much you layered it) and looked very natural!

I just can't believe this stuff! For the price, it is a very good foundation. It's sooo silky and applies flawlessly and not dry. I had to mix Fair and Light, which is fine, because they're only $5 each regularly priced, and as someone else mentioned, they're BOGO at Walgreens right now. This does not settle into the lines, and has a nice glow, but certainly not as much as BE. Will definately repurchase. UPDATE: This is a little sheer, and requires extra effort in the morning to get the coverage I want. I also wish it had SPF. Bumping down a lippy. UPDATE: Like stated above, this is a little too sheer for me. It's also a little bit shimmery, so the lack of coverage and shimmer combined, ends up looking like you sweeped only shimmer across your face. Bumping down another lippy.

I bought this in Tan. I haven't had much success with mineral makeup. I tried BE and it made me look like an android. Plasticky looking, you know. Like a weird mask. Then I've tried various drug store brands and most of them completely suct. This one is the best I've tried at any price. No, it's not exactly great coverage, but it gives a natural, polished look that is flattering. This is $4.99, but right now it's BOGOF time at Walgreens.

UPDATE::DANG i really wanted to like this but its breaking my face out with HUGE pimples s0o0 im going to have to retire this
Still a perfect foundation.. the medium makes me look medium-pale (LOL) so i use PF Bronzing mineral veil in Bronzer over it to set my makeup and add color and my face looks amazing i've been getting stares from everyone (males & Females), ITS GREAT!!
I LOVE THIS MINERAL MAKEUP!!
okay so i was using B.E (Medium Tan) and it started making my face itchy and then i came across the reviews on here about the itchy-ness and acne so i returned it before it got worst..
I was searching for mineral makeup for a while I tried PF Loose powder and it looked good but gave no coverage, well of course it's not a foundation.. so i was looking for a foundation that gave light to medium coverage...
i saw this and the packaging caught my attention i dont know why but i thought it was pretty.. it comes in 4 shades, Pale, Light, Medium, and Tan.. Since i was a medium tan i wasnt sure which one to go for Medium or Tan i picked Medium because most Tans turn orange on my skin.
It is s0o0o GOOD!!
the coverage is light but u can put another layer for medium coverage I dont really need alot. It only cost me $5 which is great for a .34oz container. The only problem is that the Rite Aid i bought it from by me sucks, they dont regularly stock up and usually discontinue items s0o i hope they DO NOT stop selling this because it is truly great..
BTW i have very OILY SKIN and it DID NOT get shiny or fade on me, I didnt need to constantly blot my face, and it kept my skin tone even. LOVE IT!!

I have this mineral foundation in Close-Up which is a tan-ish shade. and i luuuuv it. i bought it thinking it would be crap cuz its so stinkin cheap bt i was suprised when it actually made my skin look amazing and luminous. for its price its one of the best in my opinion.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
This product is fine. It does have minimal coverage, but it goes on smooth and lasts pretty well through the day. I was actually really impressed with it since the lightest color is too dark for me. But I tried it and it actually blended really well. It looks so dark in the canister, but when you put it on, the sheerness helps it blend better. Not nearly as good as my HG-Everyday Minerals, but it would do in a pinch.

I have pretty good skin and general and don't really wear foundation. But I decided to give this a try after hearing so many things about the pros and benefits of mineral makeup. And at such a cheap price, why not?!? This powder offers sheer coverage and helps even out skin tone somewhat. It gives a nice healthy 'glow' to skin without looking fake or artificial like some highlighters do. The packaging is bulky and somewhat awkward to use but all in all I like this as a highlighter/ skin brightener. I would repurchase but I think this was LE. Too bad..:(

This may work for someone who wants just a little coverage in their foudation. However, for me, there wasn't much to like. The coverage was very light, almost to the point of nothingness. The packaging is bulky and heavy, the sifter mechanism sucks. And on top of that, this was $5.99. EM make (IMO) the best mineral foundations and the 2.5g size is only $5.
The good things I can say about this are that 1) it didn't break me out; 2) it is light and you can't feel it on your face and 3) since it's so sheer, the 3 color choices available can work for anyone's skin. I am a NC30/C3 and super yellow. The Stage Light was about the right value but too peachy. However, since it's so sheer, it looked fine on me.
