It's good mineral foundation.
I have been using this on and off for many years now. I always have it on hand in my make up collection because sometimes I like to switch it up. I change foundations depending on the season (heavier vs light coverage) and my skin, if it breaks out a lot, etc. This ain't bad! I used to use Bare Minerals back in the day when I was a teen, but since I've found a cheaper alternative, why pay more? The brush. Ahh, the brush. Replace it with a nice kabuki brush and you're set. Give the old brush to your baby sister. This CAN be cakey if you apply too much. This is supposed to be for a light to medium coverage, so if you're looking for full, don't bother because you'll hate it. If you have dry skin, this isn't the best fit for you. It's fast and easy to apply for those days you want to look put together yet not totally made up. xo
Really Like This!
Since I'm a teen, I wanted something light, breathable, but that would cover up what I needed it to. This does the trick! The shade matched my skin tone wonderfully and covered imperfections and soaked up oil in my t-zone. I would suggest that you be very light handed if you're doing your cheeks, it can get very powdery and cakey if you're not careful.
Love the powder not the brush.
This is like the one powder in my arsenal that deals well with my oily t-zone, it really keeps the oil in check! i dont use this as a settign powder, i feel its best for using alone over primer & mascara for agreat natural look. I really disliked the brush, companies need to stop putting brushes with things. A lil goes a long way with me.
In the beginning of fall, I went on a mission for mineral foundation. I tried Bare Minerals, but the color wasn't a particularly good match for me, and for the price I wanted perfection, so I tried the Maybelline one. I got the wrong shade, and I have no idea why I didn't just go back and pick another shade, but I digress.
I have finally found the right color for me, and I love this. I use Benefit's That Gal primer underneath it just to give it something to hold on to and I really like the combination. I haven't noticed any radical changes in my skin, but it's only been a couple weeks. I would definitely recommend trying this, I get pretty good coverage out of it and I'm very happy with it.
This stuff is pretty good. I used it for a while but there are better products out there. I give you even coverage. If you don't want to look like you are doing much.
Use it almost daily and I love it! I do have a couple of others I'll use just to switch it up but this is my go to. The coverage is nice and it's not heavy...doesn't look powdering and blends so well.
I love this, best drugstore powder i've tried!
This is by far the best drugstore powder I've tried. It is similar to the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural when it comes to the look and finish it gives your skin. I do prefer the MAC msf natural more though because it does provide more coverage and last longer, but this Maybelline Mineral Power powder is great for summer. It's super light but gives my skin a nice flawless finish overtop my liquid foundation.
This used to be my number one go to foundation. However, after a while, I found out that powdered foundetion wasn't for my skin. I don't know why, because I have normal skin, and powders should work great, but maybe I just didn't know how to use it. Anyway, I never felt that this gave any good coverage for me, even if I tried concealer over and under. Also, I found it really messy to work with. There was too much fallout on my clothes, on the counter. Nope, not for me.
If I'm feeling super lazy, or don't want to put on full makeup to go to the shops etc, this is fantastic. It evens out my skin tone, gives pretty good coverage including covering redness. I always go bright red when exercising and I find it embarrassing - I've taken to putting some of this powder on my face before I go to the gym - and when I look in the mirrors I'm not red at all, it's that good.
