I was so excited to get this since a lot of people raved about it. Their color selection isn't so great. I barely found a match for my skin color yet I still purchased it. After two hours of wearing this stuff, my face looked horribly slick and I don't even have really oily skin. I got this since I liked that it was in a pressed powder form but that's about the only thing positve about this product. Bare Escentuals is soooo much better!

This is my favourite mineral makeup! Gives a great, matte finish, can build for more coverage, not cakey, worth the price, waterproof as well.

After reading so much about mineral foundations, I gave this a try. I have combo skin with my T-zone being EXTREMELY oily so nothing prevents oil breakthrough on me, but I'm sold on this mineral stuff. It really does look more natural than liquid foundations and doesn't look cakey. Since I'm using the pressed in the compact, I found I needed to buy the flocked sponge (after spending $40 on the Handi brush) to get better coverage.

I have been using the pressed minerals now for a couple of years and this gives me the illusion of perfect skin. It evens my skin tone, doesn't cake, covers imperfections, and does not bother my sensitive acne-prone skin. One problem I did notice was that the Warm Silk pressed was turning slightly orangish when my skin was extremely oily. I switched to Bisque and started using the PureMatte pressed powder and was happy once again. JI does recommend the pressed for oilier skin types and that seems to be the case for my skin--if my skin is dry, the pressed exacerbates the dryness. The price may seem high but a little goes a long way. A compact will last me 9-12 months with daily use. Will always repurchase.

Disappointing! I ordered samples from WTF, and they sent me samples of 'crushed' pressed minerals. The colour worked well for me, and so I splurged and bought a compact in Golden Glow.
I find it really hard to work with the actual pressed base because it's hard to pick up the colour using my brush, and it seems to take much more effort to get enough coverage on my face.
JI seems to make me oilier and midway through the day seems to feel heavy and cakey on my skin (although i didn't feel the same way about the samples)...*sigh* perhaps I should take the pressed minerals out of the compact and crush it myself???

After reading so many rave reviews, I decided to request samples from skindeepiii and jane iredale. I was so excited to try it, it seemed like the perfect foundation. Boy, was I wrong. This might seem unusual from all the reviews, but I broke out HORRIBLY on my cheeks (and I NEVER break out on my cheeks). I have been miserable for the last 5 days. It looks like a bad rash/acne. I am very sad and dissapointed.

This really was quite average to me. I"m not a big fan of pressed foundations, so that could be why.. It didn't make my skin feel smooth and flawless, and can't hold a candle next to Bare Escentual's mineral foundations.

I really like this foundation. It covers my broken capillaries and evens out my skin without making me a grease bomb like other pressed mineral bases I have tried. I got the Handi Brush and i think it really is the key for application. I try all shades but my recommendation is to go a shade darker than you think you will wear. The matte powder is great to set everything.

GREAT GREAT GREAT product!!! Even tho it's a powder.. it looks super natural.. I dont even look like I have anything on.. just great looking skin! PLUS it lasts ALL DAY.. I look fresh by the end of the day! Usually the AC in my office dry my skin out.. but since I am using this.. my skin looks incredible.. I still can not believe that by the end of the day.. my face looks so fresh that it looks like I just applied 5 mins ago!
GOOD STUFF! Contains SPF 17, even better! =)

I absolutely love this stuff!! It leaves my skin looking smooth and flawless, plus it lasts all day and looks very natural. I cannot tell I am wearing anything! Plus I have dry, sensitive skin and this does not irritate my skin or accenuate the dry areas.
