Was intrigued by the whole mineral foundation hoop-la, so decided to try Jane Iredale after reading so many reviews. Thankfully, only bought samples. Suprisingly, bad colour match. There seem to be so many. Nothing seems to fit, and all I tried is too yellow (literally made me look jaundiced), too red, too pink or too muddy. Yes, it's mattfying of you have very oily skin perhaps. I actually have combo skin with oily tendencies, and this actually made me have itchy, painful flakes. Breaks me out too - which is the deal breaker. Dissappointing as I thought the whole point of it being mineral is it's natural-ish, and WON'T react with my skin. Off to the bin it goes!
UPDATE: recently tried Laura Mercier's and love this!!!

Sounds odd, but I just spent $45 for a product that makes me look like I'm not wearing any product at all, which is exactly what I wanted! Hesitant at first to try this because I've seen women wear mineral makeup and look very cakey, but gave it a go when my skin technician offered the Warm Sienna as a natural, neutral powder after my facial. If it looked heavy, well, that's why God created soap and warter! She put a deep moisturizer on my face, explaining that this product works best with a base of moisturizer. She applied it with a brush, using light strokes. It really did look natural, even outdoors in the sunlight.. It evened out my splotchiness and I could still see my freckles. She said to use a damp sponge for a heavier "nighttime" look (no, but thanks anyway). Glad I tried it.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! Jane Iredale is one of the best poweders I have ever used. It goes on feeling light and clean, yet provides the most beautiful coverage. After a long night out, it covers all my red spots, undereye circles, etc. I rarely ever even use under eye conc. anymore as this can be used in place of it. On nights when I am going out, I use the loose powder for added coverage which leaves a soft glow on the skin (NOT oily). I would def recommend this to anyone who is looking for flawless coverage and light finish. I am also very acne-prone with large pores and this still works like a dream. BIG TIP- Invest in the HANDI brush as well...it will make all the difference when applying this as well as the loose powder (works better then kobuki). I am fair skined and the warm silk looks great!

Case is heavy and hard to open-chips my nails. The coverage is good but I do not like the feel of it on my skin and unless my skin is super moisturized first it goes on too dry and looks weird. Also it is easy to overdose the amount of this. The sponge it came with is awful. Use the flocked sponge. I went back to my MAC studiofix powder.

My new HG powder/foundation!! I just love this stuff! I have dry, sensitive, acne prone skin and this stuff is great - as long as you moisturize well and let your face cream sink in before applying. I am a MAC NC35 and was first recommended Warm Sienna, which was really too light. I went back and bought Golden Glow, which is a bit dark (maybe for NC40 or NC45) but hey - it ends up covering my hyperpigmentation! I wish they would come up with a color in between these two shades!

I finally found a great salon that sells JI in my community and after all the great reviews couldn't wait to try it! I have tried so many powder foundations: Laura Mercier, Prescriptives, Dior, Guerlain, Shiseido, Chanel and the worst BE. So far I really am impressed with this product. It is much more convenient than loose mineral powders, it feels light and I got a great color match (Amber). The coverage is sheer but buildable and looks very natural, not chalky. Hasn't irritated my skin at all. However, I think this will be better in the cooler weather as it does seem to draw out some oiliness. Overall I am very happy. Also love the SPF! Now, I want the Handy Brush.

I got a nicely sized sample of this in Radiant along with an order from the Derm Store. (same sized pot as a Wet n Wild single shadow - same packaging, too). It was too dark a shade for me, but I'm not counting that. It went on smooth and blended right in. It does last a while, and is really beautiful powder. No dry patches, no caking, no stupid shiny particles. And needless to say, no irritation whatsoever. But it is just too sheer. I'm using this up as a primer on my eyelids, which, by the way, it works amazingly well for. I think the powder formula is wonderful, but I wouldn't pay JI's prices for such sheer makeup.

Love this! It brushes on so easily. One compact lasts forever. It's very natural and simple.

Jane Iredale Pressed Base with spf is amazing. It really enhances your skin, while actually covering imperfections. I never break out from this product, and my skin glows. Also, I used this all summer with many 100F + sunny, CA days...and my face & neck never burned, so the spf18 must work.
It really is totally undetectable, as I've had multiple comments about how clear & great my skin looks...and I had a lot of pressed base on.
The only negative is that if you have dry, or somewhat dry skin you will need to use a good moisturizer before applying. This powder is not moisturizing!

I have very oily and older skin, (I'm 49). This powder foundation is pretty sheer and seemed to turn a muddy texture and orange hue after a few hours. I also started breaking out, cystic acne, getting clogged pores, blackheads which I haven't gotten with my other product line. I was using Perscriptives (over 10 years) and wanted to try a change. I'll go back to Perscriptives and stay happy with what I have.
