First things first: mineral foundation is not the same as regular powder. This silken formula is made from finely crushed minerals that are bound with vitamin E and shea butter. Layer it to give you as little or as much coverage as you want, without ever looking heavy or powdery. It even has built-in SPF 15 for extra sun protection.
I have literally tried everything and this is by far the best foundation I have ever used. It gives a med coverage and lasts all day for me without ever rubbing off or getting oily. (This is the classic formula and lasts 5x as long as the new "improved" formula with skincare ingredients.)
I purchased this pressed powder about a year ago and still have some left in the compact. I love that that there is not waste when using it. I apply it with a big fluffy foundation brush and it covers very nicely. You can also build the powder if you want a little more coverage. It lasts all day also. Very nice product.
I have been using Pur Minerals for about 5 years and it is my favorite face makeup. It has a better matte finish than bare minerals, and looks more natural. It doesn't cover as much as bare minerals, but you can build on for more coverage. Also it doesn't cover your bathroom in power as much as bare minerals does.
I usually use liquid foundation, but I am sold on this powder! I purchased the medium blush and the color matches my Asian skin tone perfectly. This powder goes on very smooth, has a nice matte finish and love the added bonus of spf for sun protection. Very happy with this purchase!
I've been using this powder for years. It has a nice matte finish, smooths skin without looking thick or unnatural. The built in SPF is a bonus.
Great coverage!! I use this in addition to liquid foundation and it sets perfectly. This is absolutely a MUST HAVE!
I have fair skin and honey was the perfect tone... No overwhelming orange tones, a beautiful tan with pink undertones. Great texture and covers freckles, blemishes, and not too dry!
I didn't get this in a birchbox but actually received their start kit for Christmas. My skin is a light olive complexion with very yellow undertones and it's impossibly hard to find a color to match it, I also have sensitive acne prone combination skin so almost everything makes is oily or breakout. Of course with olive skin I also have the dark circles under my eyes that have been there since birth. This makeup is the best mineral makeup I've ever used, it stays put all day never gives me shine covers any flaws I have, and the prime and perfect primer you use in combination with this foundation instantly helps my dark circles, you can really tell the two products work together. I even referred a friend who also fell in love with this foundation and the primer. I'll never use anything else. I am the light tan shade and use the prime and perfect in original neutral shade (it's white goes on clear).
i like this powder. it works great. i should have bought a slightly darker shade but otherwise very happy with it.
I've gotten this product before and liked it a lot but for some reason had gone back to my Mac Studiofix after that. I had some points and gave this another shot, and am very satisfied. In my opinion, it makes my skin look incredibly natural and nearly flawless, but with no powdery residue that makes my skin look dry. I love it. I dislike that it doesn't come with a sponge or applicator, but it surprisingly works well with a brush. I still use a sponge, because brushes don't seem to get enough on for me, but I was really surprised to see that even using a brush it covered well. Great product!! Will definitely purchase again.
