I’ve been using this foundation for nearly 20 years. I sometimes stray but always return. It simply works for my skin and I love it. Check out Shelby Wilson’s YouTube videos for proper application...

I've been testing this for over a year and I am NOT a massive fan of this product. WHAT I DON'T LIKE: This powder looks good on me only when I use a small amount but then I don't get the needed...

Absolutely AWFUL. Highlighted pores (I’ve never seen them look SO bad on initial application), made me itch, poor coverage, caused breakouts and just generally looked horrific. I’d rather wear...

I actually love this foundation. Or, to be more exact – I WOULD love it if I could find a shade that matched. This foundation is great in so many ways. The finish is beautiful, the lasting power is...

Never thought I'd be able to wear a powder type foundation because I have extremely dry, flaky skin. This foundation when applied correctly looks flawless! I watched you tuber shelby wilson who...

It is hit or miss for me with mineral make up. I decided to give this a whirl again since I'm older and my skin is changing. Plus, I like to have something fast to apply on days that I don't have...

Ok it took me about 13 years but I finally learned my lesson. I like the formula of the original a lot better than the matte option despite me having oily skin. The original gives you a...

So I was a little fearful since this has Bismuth in it. I had tried the loose Matte from Bare Minerals and it's just okay. I wear bare minerals blush with no breakouts and it has bismuth in it, so...
