This is one of the BEST mineral make-ups I have tried. I don't wear a lot of make-up and don't wear everyday, but when I do I love using this foundation. It is light weight so I don't feel it on, doesn't "cake" up on blemishes or "fall" into wrinkles. Just a wonderful product from Mary Kay and I have used all of their foundations and have grown with them :) (still remembering the eyeshadow you have to get wet to put on.)
Love this foundation!
I wear this product every day, and I love it! As you work the powder into your skin, it warms and sits so lightly on your skin. I tend to wear this over foundation to set it and it helps my make-up last all day. I tend to have oily skin with breakouts, so I like the fact this product gives you buildable coverage so on good days you dont need very much, but on those bad days, you can build up a couple of layers for your own tailored coverage!
Good daily powder
This is the first mineral powder I've had. My skin is sensitive to most liquid foundations and I tend to break out the next day after wearing them. The rep told me this powder was 'buildable' for when I want heavier coverage. I find that that's true, but I tend to like a softer look. A great powder for those who want a natural look on a daily basis.
Lighweight Buildable Coverage
This is a very lightweight mineral coverage. It is very finely shaven that covers your visible pores and other "imperfections". Works great by itself or it could be added to a liquid foundation for a buildable flawless finish. This shine control long wearing formula will not cake or wear off by midday. This product provides the coverage of a foundation with the comfort of a powder giving you a natural or matte finish.
I'm picky with powders....
My skin has a fine texture and small pores and powder usually sits wrong on me. I love my micabella, but honestly this stuff might have sat even better on it than my mineral foundation does. I can't use drugstores, ID bare min, or other brands cause they show. Its a really natural look for a good skin day. I dont like caking on makeup. Great price. Its a cult thing in our area. All the girls are gaga for it. Why I tried. I had my doubts but I do love it. I'd give it six stars if I could, but I gave it four because it contains talc. So no accidently sleeping in it or overnight wearing. Besides that its just fabulous!
Pros: the colors are good. They have 2 shades I can wear. The container is awesome. It locks shut so there are NO spills in my purse. It doesn't oxidize.
Cons: I had to layer and layer and layer to get any coverage and at that point the light feeling was gone. In its place was a powdery, caked on look. It did. It control any oil in my tzone like I would expect a powder foundation to do. It didn't last very long either. After a couple hours, all the layers I had to put on to get coverage, were breaking up and getting patchy. It was grainy and just sat on my skin like sand. It needs to be more finely milled.
I think that's it. I was just not impressed. Mary Kay has some great products, but this is not one of them.
One of my faves
This is the 1st powder I own and i LOVE it! Its very light weight and since im dark skin it doesn't give me a ashy look. It also covers up well
Good mid-range option
I bought this in beige 1 and their primer compact at the same time. The powder is fantastic for staying on, I blow my nose often and with other brands it always rubs off in that area (some credit probably goes to the primer too). I also sweat sometimes and this one has managed to stay on 'mostly' in comparison to others.
Considering I paid a lot more for previous powders, this one wasn't too bad. Mid-range and worth its price.
Blends so super perfectly with my skin tone. Sometimes it's hard to find a foundation that does that for those of us with dark skin. Very versatile too. I use it with only concealer for a more natural look or I use it with the Matte foundation for a more full coverage look. AND the best part is it's really affordable. LOVE IT!
