Birchbox Breakdown

At its best, powder foundation gives us a coveted no-makeup look; at its worst, we look like we fell face-first into a bag of flour. Avoid the latter fate with this award-winning mineral formula. Made only of the purest ingredients, the easy-to-blend powder provides a radiant finish and SPF 15 coverage—all without clogging pores or upsetting sensitive skin.

How it Works

This three-in-one mineral formula acts as a foundation, finishing powder, and full-coverage concealer. Strength is the fairest shade of all, with peachy and beige undertones. Nurture, the brand’s most popular shade, is a beige hue for fair to medium skin. One notch lower on the darkness scale, there’s Patience, a warm beige for medium skin tones. Lastly, Freedom works well for medium skin tones in the tanned or olive zone. Bonus: Not only does this formula love your skin, it loves animals too—it’s 100 percent vegan and cruelty-free.

How to Use

Swirl your foundation brush in a thin layer of powder. Lightly tap the brush handle to ensure an even coat. Gently buff face in large, sweeping circles. For spot coverage, use a concealer brush to apply and seamlessly blend the powder.

Mica (CI 77019) May contain (+/-) Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891); Zinc Oxide (CI 77947); Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499); Ultramarines (CI 77007)

Did not blend well
Purchased

I was very disappointed in this product. The formula was cakey, did not blend well...and midday I looked terrible. I have normal skin, no wrinkles, yet this product made me look tired and old. I tried with extra moisturizer and still did not work. Ended up returning it and I very rarely return anything.

Good coverage, stays put

I like this foundation. It took a couple uses to get the coverage I was looking for. It is definitely build able. Birch box didn't have the color I needed , nurture, so I had to order elsewhere. Good coverage & stays in place. The shade nurture was perfect for my light skin tone & it conceals my redness. Appears dry looking at first but once it sets that goes away.

Smooth coverage that lasts all day!
Purchased

One of the better powders I have used. It helps even out all red spots and helps cover all pimples. As a bonus, it stays on all day without clogging my pores!

My secret weapon

You know that girl on the street with the glow-y, perfectly even, but not greasy skin? Yeah, she's wearing Anika. This stuff is super light so it looks like you're wearing nothing, is actually hydrating, and, after a full day at the office, you still look flawless for happyhour without a touch up. I will never run out of this stuff!

Love it

I have never been one to wear a lot of make up, but as I've gotten older I need foundation, eye liner and mascara. This powder foundation covers perfectly and doesn't feel heavy or caked on. Lasts all day too. The bottle looked small when it arrived, but it has lasted me a long time. Worth the $.

Inika powder
Purchased

I have to say I did not like this at all. I wanted to love it but there were many things that didn't work for me. The packaging was hard to manage..the lid never stayed on properly. It didn't have a closing mechanism inside to keep it from spilling out during travel and it was hard to get out when you actually wanted to use it due to the small holes. Maybe I had a defective jar but definitely not worth the price tag. The coverage was ok but a bit to shimmery for my taste.

This one did not give me as much coverage as I hoped, but it stayed on all day. Still better product then Bare minerals.

love it

This is a great alternative to someone who doesnt like cream foundation. The coverage is full. I never thought I could get a powder to cover pimples, redness, pores and marks. My only problem is matching. The color is a bit too dark - I wish I had made a more accurate choice.

best powder out there
Purchased

SOOO impressed with the results of this powder. I used to have very low maintenance skin but as I have gotten older my skin has been affected by stress. I used to be a bare minerals user but it really wasn't setting on my skin that was becoming more acne prone and oily. This powder is soo much better. It looks so completely natural that I have to do a double take if I actually put make up on. I have slightly oily and medium colored skin and patience matched my skin perfectly. Definitely worth the price.
