I first used Merle Norman Powder Base as a teenager. I used it off and on over the years, but had a hard time finding a MN Studio close to where I lived. Eureka! You can now order from them...

Have used this foundation off and on since high school. Always go back to it..especially when my sensitive skin has a rosacea flare up. The zinc in the formula is very soothing and healing. Love it!

this stuff is amazing, the coverage is not extreme but it transforms and beautifies the face in a very natural and glowing way if used with a brush

I really like the Merle Norman Powder Base. My only issue has been that my husband hates the smell of the product so I have had to cut down to using it only for special occasions. I never had an...

It's basically a colored zinc oxide! You put it on a baby's bottom to prevent and heal diaper rash. Why not on your face? It is also a great sunscreen. There are no other foundations that I know of...

This product was very nostalgic to me - this and the Miracol mask. When I was a teenager in the 60's I was fascinated with Merle Norman. At that time I could only afford Woolworth cosmetics and...

This stuff is just amazing! I've tried to make friends with it a few times over the years with varying results, but now I'm hooked. It may not keep me from checking out a new foundation every once...

Update (12/27/2013): I've been using this all week now, and I love it!!! After a short time, it melds into my skin, and it doesn't get greasy or oily. My usually oily nose stays shine-free. No...

Finding this product was a huge score for me. My good friend from college always had that beautiful, I-wish-I-looked-like-you skin. I used to eye her makeup bag when she would be getting ready...
