I am talking about the pressed mineral foundation. Wonderful. This has become my holy grail...the one I never thought I'd find. I have combo-oily, oily T-zone skin that can dry out easily.

This is definitely my holy grail of foundations. I am NEVER going to use anything else again. I've said that a lot in the past, but I am totally convinced that this is the best foundation I'll ever find. It provides flawless coverage without feeling heavy and also improves the texture and clarity of my skin, provides adequate sun protection and is so conveniently packaged.
UPDATE: (10/25/08) I stopped using this several years ago (can't remember why), so I thought I'd try it again, especially since they reformulated it to be bismuth-free. I ordered some samples from Skin-Etc. and Ivory was perfect for my neutral PPP NC15 skin. First, I tried it alone, but then realized I would have to use a concealer underneath. So, I used my Merle Norman concealer underneath and applied it with my EDM flat-top kabuki brush. It just didn't seem like it was covering well, no matter how much I layered on. I finally gave up and left. While I was in my car, I happened to look in the rear-view mirror and was shocked at how even and natural my face looked (It's normally EXTREMELY blotchy).
So basically, if I layer it on, it looks great. However, it feels very "obvious" on my skin and makes me itch, even though it's bismuth-free. I won't repurchase since this is very pricey and obviously won't last long since I have to pile it on to achieve suitable results.

Give the ultimate coverage and is much easier than a liquid foundation
