I purchased shade 02 which looked like a good match at the store. When I wore it at home I wasn't satisfied with color, but the worst was the coverage. I think it has zero coverage for gals with blemishes. I wouldn't repurchase. One of their advantages is that it is pure and very lightweight. So if you're skin is in good condition you'll like it.

This has a good range of colors if you are on the paler side. I usually use the lightest shade in all mineral makeup, and I picked up shade 2, which is a little dark now that its winter, but during the warmer months it was a good match. It applies very easily and will never look cakey. However, it accentuated my flakes and towards the end of the day made my face extremely oily. It had really poor coverage too, even if I used a concealer brush with it to cover spots. It's good for covering any redness, but nothing else. Urban Decay's mineral makeup, and even L'Oreal's has much better coverage than this.

I like The Body Shop products, but this one was disappointing. It didn't deliver the desired coverage at all, and for those of you who have acne scars or marks that needs covering up, this won't do a thing. It also has a strange stale-ish smell to it (I've checked the other ones in the store, just to make sure it wasn't just mine), while my other mineral makeup are all virtually scent-less. The packaging is not very practical either. Instead of tiny holes, the foundation tub has a sifter, and because the holes are extra fine, it takes forever to sift out the amount of powder you want.

I'd say this is medium coverage, for a mineral product. The finish is a satin like finish, i must say i much prefer a matte one.however this feels like silk on my face, its very natural looking and great for daily wear. i also like the packaging with the mesh top rather than holes, less product gets spilt around. comparing to my other two faves mineral and non mineral, jane iredale and mac studio fix, i'd say this covers the least. i would buy again just to wear it daily though, perhaps to run errands or go out for brunch and such.

I have this in 01, the lightest shade. It's very mattifying, gives good coverage, and the mesh instead of holes is a good idea, as it makes it less messy.

Whenever I wear this foundation, I am told that my skin is glowing!

If you're looking for a matte high coverage mineral foundation, forget it: this isn't it. When I got it I wanted a mineral foundation that when applied on its own, would give me similar coverage to a liquid one (which I like to go with on weekends); this one doesn't do it and on a 1-5 coverage scale, I'd give it only 2.
Still the slightly luminous finish it's pretty (not matte at all) so I use it over my liquid foundation.
I'm Mac NC30 and picked TBS Natures Mineral Foundation in 03.
I loved Artdeco which coverage is pretty amazing, the same as a light liquid foundation really so I'm getting back to that one.

Meh, this was ok. I could take it or leave it. I liked the color, 02, but this didn't have enough coverage for me. It wasn't the worst I've tried, but certainly not the best. It applied sort of patchy, like on my cheeks, I couldn't get it right, even though I was wearing primer. This had a good finish to it, right in between dewy and matte. Love the SPF 25. Love the packaging with the mesh sifter. But in the end, it added time to my morning, with me trying to achieve some coverage, and added time is definately not something to keep.

I didn't like this product at all, it felt like it gave zero coverage and that was putting air on my face. Previously I had been using the L'Oreal mineral foundation and found this 100 times better for coverage.

I love this product - I have to say it is by far the best mineral foundation I have used. I've purchased a set on ebay where I use two colours to get the right tone on my face, but with The Body Shop Nature's Minerals, I have found the right one. I am tanned asian and bought No 05 foundation, even though I thought it was a little bit too dark, it sits so perfect on my skin.
This is even perfect now as Summer is coming up (here in Australia), as minerals are a way to go - no makeup melting and all day you'll look natural and fresh and radiant during the day once the minerals have set and blended into the natural oils of your face. Also this has SPF 25 so an advantage in summer as well, would be perfect when going to an overseas trip.. bring yourself the kabuki brush and a nature's mineral foundations.
I highly reccommend for women of all ages. Ditch the foundation.

I am Asian, and have temperamental skin- sometimes combination oily, sometimes dry, mostly sensitive.
I used shade 02 and living in a humid, tropical climate, so SPF25 in a mineral foundation is really more than I could ask for. The foundation gives very adjustable, buildable coverage and does its job in covering open pores, blemishes, imperfections and any signs of redness very well. Used alone it gives off a rather dewy, radiant and natural finish. Lasting power is so-so- sometimes I need to blot around my nose area and the oiliness seeps through and highlights my pores, sometimes it looks good all day.
However I think that my skin does not suit mineral foundations as my skin reacts to them by having little pimple-like welts all over (I dismissed them initially as pimples due to hormones, but they wouldn't go away) so I am no longer using it. A pity as I love The Body Shop and mineral foundations.
It costs an equivalent of US$ 28 (At current exchange rate) for a 5g jar- it may seem quite pricey but a little goes a long way for this foundation. The packaging is also very unique and wonderful- with a stone-like, shimmery screw-top cap and the inside is what's the winner. Instead of the normal holes for sifters this foundation uses a mesh-like net, which effectively sifts the finely milled foundation powder into an even more fine texture.

I have been using this foundation for a week now, I have to say that the coverage is a little lighter then BE Mineral foundations but the overall look and feel is much more natural, I dont have any problems with shine or my pores looking huge. The coverage is buildable and never looks like you have to much on. I would purchase this again.

This is an okay mineral foundation. I found the texture to be soft and silky but didn't get great coverage with it. I had to layer this multiple times in order to get the usual coverage I have with one layer of my regular mineral powder (Mineral Secrets from SkinRxClinic). This product has a matt finish, very natural, so if you want light coverage you may like this, but I don't have perfect skin and I need more coverage for some redness and age spots.

this is body shops new mineral foundation powder that contains spf 25. I have used b.e. and body shops mineral powder gives better coverage but still had the natural look. It is pricey at $25.00 but i think it is well worth it in my eyes. they only have six colors, so there is not much to choose from. It does not make my face itch and there is no heavy feel. It also last well on the skin. I will be repurchasing this again, i think i have found my hg mineral powder foundation.
