I bought this product hoping to replace my previous powder foundation. And because I had read so many great review I gave it a shot! BAD.

Pros:
*Feels like nothing is there
*Does not have any bad smells....or bad smell at all

Cons:
*Does not last
*No anti oil properties
*TOO sheer
*BROKE ME OUT!
*Packaging sucks

Definitely will not repurchase.

I've always been a big fan of Neutrogena products. Even though I think it's pretty pricey for a DS brand, as long as it works, who cares. I got this because it was on sale and I planned on using it for more of a setting powder than an actual foundation because I prefer medium to heavy coverage. I tried this with both Maybelline Superstay liquid foundation & Neutrogena healthy skin (not the old kind) liquid foundation. It works pretty well with both of them, it's nice as a setting powder because it doesn't give too much coverage, but it gives you enough to give you the poreless/airbrushed look. I would buy it again, I still use it from time to time. It did have more of a tendency to oxidize on me with the Neutrogena liquid foundation, but with Maybelline it was perfect and it doesn't transfer much.

I'm an NC42 in MAC studio fix powder and for Neutrogena Mineral Sheers powder foundation I use the shade Honey Beige. First of all, this foundation has been very good to my skin. I have pretty sensitive skin and I haven't had a bad reaction to it. It's light-medium coverage. I prefer natural coverage where it doesn't look like I have completely flawless skin so this is great for me. I just use this to even out my skin tone. If you are looking for full-coverage, I do not recommend this because you will most likely be disappointed. It is also mess-free since it's in a compact, which is a big plus and great for on the go/traveling. I also don't recommend it to people with dry skin because it can accentuate the dry-ness.

I like this powder overall. It makes my skin look really healthy and matches my skin tone very well. (I have it in Soft Beige) I also like the fact that it has SPF 20 in it. The only thing I noticed is that it didn't keep the oil down on my forehead so I have to reapply it halfway through the day, but I can deal with that. I would buy this again because of how well it matches my skintone, and for me, it seems like my skintone is hard to match!

This foundation made my skin oily. It caused breakouts and comes off easily and feels cakey.

I do not have bad acne or scars but my skin is a bit uneven. I use this alone and it does the job great. Looks very natural because it matched my skin color perfectly (olive). The only I suggest is exfoliate once in a while because I applied this on my face when my skin was horrible and you could see the lines.

I really really wanted to love this product, because i love neutrogena. i trust them, especially with the whole dermatologist reccomended thing they have going for them, but i don't like this. And having bought it in june and just reviewing it now says i gave it a fair chance. Ill start with packaging...i know its sanitary for the mirror and puff underneath but i prefer a mirror on top and its a bit bulky. the color selection wasn't bad. i have some yellow in me and i found a good color match. the coverage was light with a brush and heavy with the sponge, but to me really didnt cover anything, just kind of evened things out. which is fine for me but i do break out occasionally and would like something to cover it on its own, not need a whole seperate product. im in college i dont have time for a long routine in the morning. the main reason i dont like this is the way i looked while photographed wearing this. my skin looks off colored, greasy, and gross. so i will not repurchase

Ok, i don't know what everybody else saw in this product. First of all, coverage: on the sheer side, but if applied with the sponge is medium. Lasting power: lasted about 5 hours but needed a few touch-ups. Overall appearence when wearing: natural beige was orange...applied it to my neck and it looked iffy. After 3 hours my skin looked oily...and it wasn't, this stuff just made it look very oily and weird. Price: $11! For a bad product....thankfully i can still return it! Quality: It didn't give me a rash, made my skin itch a little. Overall: Bad product, made my face look weird, and it was on the high side for a drugstore product.
