Not impressed
Purchased

I had high hopes for this product, but this didn't impress me at all. I have combination skin and the foundation looked chalky on my dry patches, even when I applied sparingly. This also didn't cover up any redness, though I will say it gives skin a nice glow.

Too Yellow

I have fair pink undertone skin and I tried to find a shade that would work for me. I went to their website because I love their ingredients and message. Unfortunately all the foundations are way too yellow, even the neutral ones. I see that Birchbox has a pink one but on their site it's done in numbers. Just wanted to warn people if you are extremely pink toned, this line isn't for you.

horrible coverage
Purchased

It has horrible coverage. I hate it. I had high hopes given the all natural ingredients and the price but this brand has failed me. I have acne and it didn't cover any of it. I put it on and it looked like before I started, literally nothing. I wish I could get my money back!

Loved it, until It Tried to Burn my Face Off
Purchased

I loved it at first, but the more I used it my face started hurting. The last time I used it my face burned so bad, I had to immediately wash it off. It felt like tiny shards of glass entered my pores. Have you ever gotten home insulation on your skin -ya, that's the feeling. I had a horrible rash and peeling skin on my face that took a few days of constant aloe and hyaluronic acid to fix. The very odd thing to me is that I have NEVER had a severe allergic reaction to any makeup or skin care. I am a beauty product and subscription box blogger, so I have tested and used so many different products. Yes, I've had issues with things irritating or itching, but NOTHING like this. I had my two daughters try it -one of them absolutely hated it because it made her skin peel (dryness), the other it made her acne dramatically worse with just one use. I rarely write bad reviews, but this product is just that bad.

Always looks dry.
Purchased

I have pretty dry skin. Liquid face make up usually makes me look the most dry and flaky. I've used other mineral makeup with great success, but this one just makes me look flaky no matter what I do.

I used points to buy this, so I'm not too upset, but I was hoping this would be amazing for me. I loved that the color was light enough for my skin and I like W3ll People as a brand.

My super cheap e.l.f. one makes my skin look better.

Little disappointed
Purchased

I'm a little (ok... maybe a lot!) disappointed with this product. I've been wanting to try it for a while and finally gave in an bought it. For $30, you barely get ANY powder in this little container. The container itself is tiny and it isn't even filled up all the way. I can find the same foundation powder for a lot cheaper and has way more product! I'm glad I got to try it but I feel like I wasted $30. They need to really re-evaluate the pricing on this. If it was half as expensive, I would buy again. But since it's not, I will not be buying again. Sorry.

Not as natural
Purchased

Really wanted to like this because it's so natural, but it sat on my face vs blending in. I compared it to my other mineral foundation and the quality of the other one was much better. Returned.

It is alright

It is alright... I got the wrong shade, and medium golden is crazy yellow. In terms of coverage it is pretty decent. I am sort of shocked at the small amount you get for 30 dollars though. If there was more of it, and I had picked the correct shade I might reorder, but not at this price.

A little over priced
Purchased

It's golden medium, but it's more yellow than the same color from BareEssential. The texture is good, but not doesn't stay on your skin as well as BE product. It's decent, but I will stick to BE since it's cheaper and works better.

Disappointed
Purchased

I got the color 15 for light/med neutral skin tone and this stuff is yellow. Made my face yellow as well. It didn't cover much, which is ok since I'd be wearing over BB cream. I am going to have to send this back. I was so wanting to love this too. I live the ingredient list and it definitely didn't break me out. The color is just very off, and I wouldn't be able to wear it alone as foundation as it reads.
