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.

ok but felt heavy
Purchased

Needed a new mineral powder foundation. Tried this one as reviews were very good. Didn't work well for me. Felt very heavy.

Basic minerals
Purchased

This product was just an alright purchase for me. I usually use bareMinerals, but decided to give this a try since I could get it from Birchbox. I probably won't get it again, but it's not bad if you're trying to use Birchbox points.

W3LL PEOPLE Altruist Satin Mineral Foundation
Purchased

Organic ingredients are hard to find in a mineral foundation that also gives a “natural” look when applied.
This lightweight formula helps to even skin tone, reduce redness and give a healthy glow.
This feels totally natural.
Your skin can breathe.
It is great for those who don’t like the heaviness of liquid foundation.

Great foundation powder
Purchased

Great coverage. I have fair, dry skin and this isn't drying at all. Smooth application, feels clean on my skin.
There are a lot of shades available but I needed the lightest and it's a good match.

exactly what i was looking for!
Purchased

I wanted an all natural mineral foundation which would be light and offer buildable coverage and that's exactly what I got -- and it smells great to boot!

this product definitely helps with my redness, which is an issue for me and i can barely even feel it when i wear it alone, and it seals the deal nicely when i wear it under my bb cream!

Great color match
Purchased

This is a great sheer powder. I love the company and how natural it is. It's not full coverage but you can layer it for more.

WoW
Purchased

I don't wear a lot of make up, and this mineral powder is perfect! It blends very evenly, doesn't look like I a wearing anything at all, but I can tell that it is covering up imperfections and evening out skin tone.

Need a different shade
Purchased

I recently purchased the Artist 16 in Medium Golden and it seems to be too light or too yellow. I tend to look better in warmer shades, but I think I'm going to purchase the 15 Medium Neutral shade. 16 makes me look golden and glowing, so it's ok that I'm wearing it in the summer with the bronzer in medium 52, but I think that a good "go to" shade for me will be the medium neutral. We'll see!

Never Thought I'd Switch...
Purchased

I have used Bare Minerals for years and always thought I'd deal with the less-than-stellar coverage. Liquid foundations have never worked for me either. I decided on a whim to try this based on reviews and felt compelled to add my own. Love, love, love the coverage and better color match (FYI, you can order samples on W3ll's site). I have total combo skin and still get acne - but so far, so good with no breakouts having used this for a solid week. I did as other reviewers suggested and put on immediately after mositurizing in the morning, otherwise it does look streaky and cakey. I also buff again after finishing my make-up routine.
