Started using this from work and fell in love!
When I began using this at work bc we had testers, I was apprehensive at first since I had used many other mineral makeup brands and all just seemed so-so. But let me tell you...I'm converted! It has a very silky and creamy texture that goes on flawlessly no matter if you apply it with a flat top brush (Handi brush), sponge, or regular powder or kabuki brush. The coverage is phenomenal and buildable, and a little goes a long way. I even use this as my concealer! I swirl my concealer brush around in the powder and then pat it on over my blemishes or dark circles and it covers like a dream. I also like that it contains SPF as sometimes I do tend to get lazy and forget to put on my sunscreen so using this gives me a little bit more peace of mind knowing I'll be protected from UV exposure. It is a bit pricey, but since I am able to get testers it doesn't quite break the bank for me. I definitely recommend it if you can afford it. It's easily available online from Jane Iredale, Astonishing Skincare or Dermstore, and many spas carry it as well. Give it a try, you'll love it!
I can't say enough about this product. It is hands down my #1 fave. A chemical free powder that provides as little or as much coverage as you desire. You can use the Jane Iredale Powder brush for light coverage or the Jane Iredale Handi brush for more coverage. Contains SPF, water resistant and is so great for the skin that it can even be applied after any face treatment (such as a peel). It covers any blotchy or red spots and provides a mineral "glow" finish. If you want coverage with a natural non-cakey look, then this is your go to!
First off, this is more than a foundation. You will see great natural ingredients like algae extract and bark extract! And absolutely NO talc or bismuth oxycholride! I am used to a fuller coverage, so I love this to set my Jane Iredale BB cream (bb9), and also to set my concealer. For touch ups through out the day, this is incredible because no matter how many times you pack it on, IT WILL NOT GET CAKEY! The shades are actually "more or less" because I have worn Coffee, Butternut, and Fawn, and they all conform to my natural skin without looking like a mask. This is by far my favorite powder. I used to used MAC's mineralize skin finish and I have completely switched over! The price is about 52 but for the refill pans its about 42. Definitely worth the investment! The overall quality of my skin has totally improved! No more breakouts, no more white heads!
The best mineral foundation for normal-oily skin
I can't say enough about this foundation...it goes on beautifully and stays on, looks flawless, has full coverage ability, and is not full of nasty chemical fillers. I try new things all of the time but always come back to this. Looks great in photos and in all kinds of light. Has more of a matte finish. I love it, try it and you will be hooked!
