I have been wearing Nicoletta in the loose powder for almost two years before deciding to get the Compact as well. As many of the previous users have mentioned the colour are very different. The compact Nicoletta is one and a bit lighter than the loose form. I am not unhappy with the fact for it helps brighten my sometimes ruddy complexion. However I'd prefer it to be the exact colour like …Read more

i used to have to apply several products to my skin to make it look flawless but now i just need one - and it's either the pressed or loose mineral powder from LBD.

i have dry, sensitive skin and with my other makeup (NARS, Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown etc), my skin would always look red and sensitive mid-day. since i started using LBD, my skin looks amazing all day and i …

I love, love, love La Bella Donna! This is the most finely milled mineral foundation out there and one of the few lines that actually has a shade to match my skin tone (Crema). I use it alone for light/medium coverage and over a liquid (either prescriptives or shu uemura) for full. If I end up with a bit of shine at the end of the day I opt for a translucent powder/blotting paper as this will …Read more

i'm still undecided as far as whether or not i like this more than jane iredale; of note: i do have oily skin and the first few times i used it with a chisel brush, it was thick and cakey and gross. i used a bigger, fluffier, rounder brush the last time and it had a much nicer finish and seemed to sit better throughout the day. i hope that is helpful for someone...

My whole life I searched for makeup that could cover my flaws without getting cakey or melt off during the heat of the day. Since I was 13 or so, I was pretty much miserable and unhappy with everything I tried. I have combo skin and get really oily in my T-zone and tend to break out a lot. My skin has always been an issue in my life and I suffered through serious bouts of self-confidence …Read more

I have honestly tried all the expensive mineral lines out there and this is by far my favorite. It doesn't break me out like many others do and it covers all my imperfections to make my skin look super smooth. It is on the pricey side but definitely worth it!

i have it in both marta and nicoletta. i must say the quality is simply the best in mineral makeups but the choice of colour is limited. sometimes, i don't believe it's minearl and it's got a creamy scent. i love the pressed version better, as it's less dewy/shiny. it's best to apply with a brush, as using the sponge will give a dull look. however, i found the coverage is …Read more

This has been my HG fx for 3 years now. Although the purchase price is kinda high ($50) hte product lasts and lasts -- so if you run a lifecycle analysis on the product, it really isn't expensive at all! The Pressed Min Fx is so convenient, it goes everywhere w/me & is great to travel with. I agree w/other reviewers on dumping the provided sponge & using instead, a flocked sponge …Read more

After amassing a drawerful of mineral makeup, I find this is the one I always go back to. I love that it can be applied wet or dry (although I seldom use it wet) and that the coverage is buildable without getting cakey. It applies smoothly either with a puff or with a brush (best of all with Jane Iredale's Handi Brush), and I can just add a little more with my finger on spots that need a …Read more

Well I like this powder. I use it w/ a big brush on my T zone & over foundation. It gives good coverage & Nicoletta is a perfect match for me. It seems to be loosely milled enough so that it comes off the pan very easily. So a big brush is needed to disperse it-otherwise it can sit thickly on skin. But it is a lovely fine-milled powder, as is their eyeshadow.
