This can also be used as a great setting powder.

absolutely adore the finish!
Its long lasting, natural but gives you that coverage you're craving for!
didn't flake on my dry skin AT ALL, the finish is similar to the BareMinerals original, but this one doesn't break me out!!!
will definitely buy it or get a CP, so bad that they only sell this in the states.. but if you live there and love mineral makeup, GET IT!!

I really love the color, texture and long wearing ability of this foundation. It is truely the nicest looking loose mineral powder foundation I have ever used. The finish is just lovely and it doesn't accentuate fine lines. It is easy to do touch ups (as long as you blot any oily spots before reapplying) w/o looking cakey - though I rairly need them. I also found it totally covered any redness I had in the center of my face. The shade is perfect for my very pale skin (BE, and JI are both too dark).
My only complaint is that anytime I wear it, I feel like I have a few blemishes that weren't there before when I take it off at night. It's not super horrible, but it still bothers me. I can't imagine what ingredient is giving me these breakouts b/c I have always been a huge fan of Lancome liquid foundations as they never cause me to get zits - EVER.
I want this to work so badly for me b/c it looks beautiful and natural, but I think I will have to try to find something else as my go to summer foundation formula. I just feel like I have tried every brand name and indy mineral product out there and either they are all too dark, don't last more than an hour, or both.

This is an amazing mineral foundation. At first, I was afraid to try it because I have sensitive skin but my skin become really irritated and flaky 2-3 weeks ago so I could not wear liquid foundation. Lancome goes by intensity and undertones 10=cool, 20=neutral, 30=warm. I'm NC15-20 in the winter and NC20-25 in the summer. Ivory 30 was almost a perfect match.
1 application of this gives medium coverage and it is buildable up to full. Finish is matte and looks natural. I have combo skin and do get oily mid-day but if I top with powder, it lasts longer. Best of all, it does not emphasize flaky skin and stays fresh all day.

This is gorgeous stuff but alas, the lightest color is way too dark for me to work with. This makeup literally makes skin look airbrushed, it is so fine, but, until they come out with a better mineral foundation in my color than my Laura Mercier pressed mineral, I won't ever purchase this.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
I would say this is the best mineral powder I've used and tried!
Color stays true all day, stay put power is incredible, light in texture but with excellent coverage. Love it love it. I put this over my Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer in bare radiance and the combination of products gives me the best radiant look for the entire day. I barely look like I have any makeup on. I do use a little undereye concealer before I use this product. But for facial blemishes, if any, I use either Shiseido or Bobbi Brown's stick concealer over the powder and blend it out with fingers. Flawless looking face. What else could I ask for? :)
I am surprised to see some reviewers said this product enlarges their pores and such. Make sure you prep you skin with a light but good moisturizer and blot your face with tissues before you puff the powder on. Hope this helps!

I have been using Ageless Minerals for 8 months now and love, love, love it! I used Bare Minerals for a while and then tried Everyday Minerals. This is, by far, the best mineral make-up out there. It lasts all day and provides good coverage with a pretty, natural looking finish. The color stays true and does not turn orangey on my slightly oily skin.
I moisturize first and apply a primer. I think this is the key to getting the most out of any foundation, but absolutley essential when using mineral foundatiion. I also use their translucent finishing powder and mineral blush. The color I use is Natural Beige 30 and it is a perfect match. I highly recommend Ageless Minerales and feel that it is well worth the price!

This foundation is AMAZING!!! I've never been a big foundation person and always stick to something that is very light. I used Bare Minerals for 3 years, and though I loved the feeling of it, my face ended up looking orange much of the time and it only lasted until lunch. I had never used Lancome before and decided to get my makeup done because I was bored at the mall. I never dreamed how INCREDIBLE my face would look! My husband was blown away when I got home! This makeup is so light I can't even feel it on my face. The coverage is wonderful and the color match is perfect. I never look orange or shiny anymore. Definitely get the brush that goes with it. It feels amazing on your face and doesn't break up the makeup like so many brushes do. I am so happy with this product and will be sticking with it from now on!!

Great mineral foundation. Gives amazing coverage and doesn't accentuate pores at all. It looks natural and the color I got is a perfect match. The cover over the sifter is great too to keep from spilling too much powder. I definitely think this one is underrated.

Ageless Minerale is in the "shiny mineral makeup" category. I tried it out for a week and it failed because the shine accentuated larger pores along my cheeks and nose. They actually looked Bigger than real life! And you can't buff this into your skin without increasing the mineral shine...which of course made my pores look even worse. Sad.
I liked the amount of coverage it provides (medium-full), and it didn't itch my skin or wear off throughout the day, which is why I give it a 3.
If you have fine pores and like your mineral foundation to have glow, then you might like this.

I really wanted to love this. I've been searching for a mineral foundation that gave me good coverage. I loved the look of this on my skin, I bought the set with the setting powder, bronzer and brush.
I took the set back 4 days later. After 3 days of using this foundation, my skin had it's worst break-out ever. Cystic acne on my cheeks and chin! Verrry disappointed! Will definitely never buy again.

I LOVE this mineral foundation. The Lancome MUA matched me to the shade Natural Honey 20 and it is a perfect match! You can build up the coverage on this and the brush that Lancome recommends for this is AMAZING. I'm on my second container of this. I've been experimenting with different types of liquid foundations at the moment (LM, MUFE and NARS) but I keep going back to this one as it just looks so natural. If you are looking for a mineral foundation, I highly recommend this one!

After being dissatisfied with several MMU brands (BE, EM, LM, & JI), I'm trying Lancome's just out of curiousity, after reading pretty good reviews here at MUA. The Lancome MA color-matched me with Beige 10, but I feel I looked a little light, I ended up getting Beige 30 for my NC30 Asian skin tone. I got the set with the foundation, finishing powder and brush for $48 at the Lancome outlet at Ontario Mills (CA), which I thought is a pretty good deal. Yes, the brush is heavenly! You just have to get it. It's much better than BE's and EM's.
And for the foundation, the MA put a lot on me, which I thought it's a bit heavy. But after 1/2 hour, the MU just melt into my skin and made it very skin-like. And there's no itchiness from wearing this foundation at all. For some reason, LM's MMU just itch like hack. It's very comfortable to wear Lancome's MMU, and the day the MA helped me put on the MU, it last at least 6 hours, which I thought it's a record. And it didn't change color thru out the day. When I washed my face on a towelette at the end of the day, there was still a lot of MU to be removed. BE used to disappeared w/in 3-4 hours on my oily/combination face. The coverage is awesome. I almost didn't need concealer to cover my aged spots. Must better coverage than BE. The MMU did have the slight sheen/silverish at my nose, but the rest of my face was looking very nicely. I did have to use my Shiseido mattifying compact to blot my nose, which is quite expected from wearing any MMU.
Today when I tried to put the MMU myself in the morning, I didn't use moisturizer or primer like the MA did, and I didn't use as much either. The result did not come out as good. It is settling in my pores and didn't provide good coverage. Tomorrow, I'm going to have to try it with primer. Will update.
So far, I really like the texture, shade, feel of this MU. I believe I just need to practise a few more times to see how to apply this MU best.
UPDATE: This morning, I used GA's Face Fabric as primer, then apply this MMU lightly. I did use concealer for my dark circle. So far after 8 hours of wear, the MU still looking pretty good. Just a little faded, not too bad. I haven't have to reapplying on my face. But I have already blot couple times on my nose, which is expected. Whenever I use MMU or powder foundation, my nose is shinny like crazy, much worse than when using liquid foundation. Anyway, I like this MMU a lot, it creates a natural look for me, very light to wear, doesn't create any itchiness or reaction of any kind. Love the high SPF especially! I'm up-ing the rating from 4 to 5. So far the best MMU for me.

This is now my new all the time foundation! I used to be an estee lauder double wear. I have tried other mineral powders, but unlike bare minerals (who don't have colors for pale-skinned girls unless you want a very pink undertone!)..this is amazing! Spf, great coverage, luminous glow! Everytime I wear this and I see family or friends I haven't seen in awhile, they always compliment me and say my skin looks very healthy! Love this stuff, best mineral make-up on the market. The price may be a bit steep, but you can always stock up on gift time and ebay!

i LOVE this product! it blends perfectly into my skin, remarkably lasts ALL day, and the brush is AMAZING. my skin looks flawless and if its hot out just dust some translucent power on top like BE Mineral Veil and you're shine free allllll day.

I'm so happy that I purchased this! At first i bought one for my mother, but after trying it I went back the next day for my own! It feels so good to finally have a light weight product that covers my acne and stays matte free all day long. Its been a long time since i've felt pretty in my skin that is always covered in new blemishes or old acne scars. This covers almost all of it, except for one or two larger blemishes that i have to cover with my Neutrogena skin brightening concealer (which is like the touche eclait). I love the way it feels and looks, and its so easy to put on. I put it on every morning and you barely need any powder to cover your whole face. I'll see how long it lasts me but my guess is 6 months to one year with everyday use. Its expensive for a jar, about $50 CAD, but I think its worth it. The sifter is very convenient too, you can slide the inside to close it, perfect for travel b/c it never spills, and with a powder this expensive, you don't want to waste a drop ;)

This is skin-transforming, all right. It transformed my face into a war zone of break outs. Before this, I used to only break out occasionally on my T-zone, and this foundation managed to make me break out at an alarming rate everywhere I put it on (i.e. my whole face). Only when I stopped using it did the fiasco stop. Now, I have to deal with the mess of red marks left over from that nightmare.
I really wanted to like this. It actually looked very nice on my face and the packaging is genius, so I was really sad when I came to the conclusion that I had to throw this away.
The positive thing about this experience for me is that:
1) I learned that my skin can break out from cosmetics and not solely because of hormones
2) I am more conscious of ingredients that can be bad for me

I must say so far I really really like this powder. I don't know how much it costs normally because I got it from a friend. So I have no clue how much it goes for.
I used to be strictly Bare Minerals, but that has changed. I still love Bare Minerals Powder but I think I love Lancome mineral powder more. First of all, the container it comes in is a VERY generous size. Very big, it'll last me a long time. I get mine in ivory because I'm very fair, and it matches my skin nicely.
I like the powder a lot. I will continue to buy it, unless I somehow find something wrong with it. I do know Lancome can be pricey which may be a problem when I have to actually buy one myself. But so far I have no complaints.

I recently switched to this from liquid. I have been using liquid all my life. I got samples in my color from my friend who works at Lancome. I tried BE once when I was 13 and hated it. This product is awesome. It gives great coverage! but it really looks like its my skin and not makeup. I'm definitly not used to the natural look and feel but i love it so far! it takes seconds to put on this foundation. I give it 4 lippies just cuz its around $40. But it's worth it to me.Oh and it does NOT settle into fine lines. so awesome! Now I know I have to buy it once I run out of samples!
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Black
Pros: Very good coverage. Love this coverage. Almost hide all my blemishes. Look very smooth from far away.
Cons: Leave my skin with weird patches when closed up. I tried 2 times one time with just my moisturizer and second time with primer. Doesn't work look really weird. A little cakey but I won't mind.
NOT FOR ME.
