The secret to this is NOT to use it with the sponge provided. Use a foundation brush and it will not cake afterwards. That being said, it provides light/medium coverage. Aveda also says that you can use this wet,which I do NOT recommend at all. I also don't recommend this for dry skinned people or using around the eyes as it can become 'crepey'. Obviously it provides a matte finish …Read more

I hated this powder foundation when I first applied it. After 3 hours of wear it broke down on my t zone creating a horrible cakey mess and settled in to my pores. I gave it another try today, except I applied it with a brush instead of the sponge it came with. this worked better for me. I also brushed over some shine control powder and that helped it to not cake from my oily skin. I'm not …Read more

Like the review below I also experienced a reaction to this powder foundation. It initially gives a very smooth demi-matte finish with good coverage (medium easily built up to full) but after a few hours I'd notice the product breaking down on my t-zone leaving an unflattering shine. In contrast my cheeks and chin appeared flaky and dry. One week of wear caused me to develop allergic contact …Read more

I really wanted to love this makeup bc all of the great reviews out there. The first couple days, I really thought I found my holy grail foundation. Then I broke out in a rash on my cheeks. It was acne but not really acne. If that makes sense. I then went online and I couldn't find anything that would make breakout in the ingredient list. Then I pulled the actual packaging and it listed …Read more

This foundation is the best for my oily skin. It gives me full coverage when applied with the AVEDA Inner Light Foundation. And it's the perfect shade for me. I've had a hard time finding a match with other brands. I'm always in between but #7 Almond is perfect for me! And I love the Eco-friendly compacts the powders snap into! Love love!

I don't write many reviews, but this stuff is amazing! I have been using this foundation for years and it has never caused my face to break out. I like the way that it blends naturally with my skin tone and the way it smells. I'm also an Aveda junky :)

I have very sensitive, fair skin with pink undertones and have used this powder foundation for years. It is the only foundation that does not break me out or make my skin itch like crazy. I wear the lightest shade (01 cream)-it is creamy ivory that blends perfectly into my skintone. I use both a sponge and a brush to apply (if you use just a sponge it is very full coverage-as in you will be …Read more

I'm someone who considered being 'made up' for work wearing mascara and sometimes lip gloss until I was in my 40s, and still I'm a minimalist, and hate feeling 'made up.' This has great coverage and applies evenly, and doesn't get stuck in creases like other mineral-based powders. It evens out my complexion, but it looks and feels really natural. It last almost …Read more

I'm in LOVE with this foundation!!!

I have a friend who works at an Aveda salon and her skin always looks so fresh and flawless. I asked her what she uses and I was amazed that she said Aveda, I never knew Aveda had makeup! I asked her to get me 2 colors (I use #5 when I'm not-so tan, and #7 when I am lol) and they both work flawlessly. I used to use Bare Minerals for the …
