I have been a bare minerals user for a few years now. I bought into the hype after being recommended by a friend, and stuck with it because I was too lazy to try other things. However, I have done...

I bought this because my dermatologist recommends mineral foundation for my acne prone, combo skin. It doesn't cover as well as Estee Lauder Double Wear and I do have to retouch. However, now that...

I have tried and tried to use this foundation. The coverage is great. Unfortunately, it stays powdery on my face and settles in dry patches and pores.

I actually like this a lot! Now, I am a known foundation addict, always on the quest to find that "perfect" foundation. This is not a holy grail product for me, but still, I like it...a ton!...

I like this powder because it's not too heavy! I first had the original but it was way too oily and made my pores look huge (like I wasn't even wearing any makeup) so I took it back for the matte...

I've been using this for about a year and have to say that this foundation is definitely buildable and doesn't break me out. At first I packed on the powder and it looked so patchy. The "swirl,...

This is the only foundation I can use that makes my skin look good. I have rosacea, with very sensitive skin and I am really intolerant to all liquid foundations which is a shame as I love a lot...

This is probably one of the best foundations I have used for day time wear as it is really light and natural, and helps control my oily skin. The product goes on really nice and is quite light,...
