I have oily skin and, all though this product is made for those with drier skins, I use it because of the great coverage I get. I'm at the pool alot so right now I'm wearing Golden Birch, but in...

This was the first makeup I ever used -- it didn't break me out so I used it all through my teens and 20s and off and on through my 30s. When Bare Minerals came out, I switched to that, but now in...

I love the translucent powder. I've had mine (the big pearl pink container) for years and I use it all the time! It is truly the best for concealing dark circles. Use your concealer like usual,...

Have used power base for years and am frankly amazed by all the fuss about the fragrance. I kind of like it and what little frangrace there is dissipates as soon as it dries. The coverage is...

I had the displeasure of trying this on my last trip to Merle Norman. I envy those who say their local SA's are nice and helpful. MINE, on the other hand, are pushy, "older" and think they know...

I can't believe I am actually writing a review for Powder Base, much less using it. This was my first exposure to Merle Norman foundations back in 1987 and at the time, I hated everything about it,...

UPDATE (5-23-09) ----- Okay, this worked nicely in the winter, but since the warm weather started this has been breaking me out. This foundation does not seem to allow my skin to sweat properly...

Well - Here I am with my Merle Norman foundations again! Being a Merle Norman fan, I did not try this base because I thought for sure it would be an oily putty. I was wrong! It is quite sheer...
