Apply Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Mineral Tinted Moisturizer first for a complete mineral makeup face look.

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

For best results, use a special Chisel brush, which has short, densely packed bristles. Dip the brush into the powder, swirl the powder in the lid of the compact, and tap off excess. Finally, dust it all over the skin using small circles. You can apply a second layer if you want more coverage, or spot treat any blemishes or dark areas.

Barely there

This powder is amazing. It goes on so light, but it gives my skin an even finish that it doesn't naturally have. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin, and this stuff doesn't seem to effect it at all. I'm in love.

Decent Coverage

The foundation does a good job covering, but is not heavy. It can be layered helping even coverage. I use this product over the Puer CC cream. The powder foundation helps make my face look not as oily as it did with other foundations (I have oily skin, especially in the T-zone). Overall, this product is light and covers well, but is not a full coverage foundation.

Good Full Coverage
Purchased

I like using this product. It's great full coverage powder that I've used to replace a previous powder I did not love. Very compact and easy to slip in your purse.

Don't like it at all...
Purchased

First it doesn't come with an applicator, nothing to use it with and the color is totally off and too dry and chalky, I am use to the cream to powder and decided to spend double the amount I normally spend on my face compact, thinking because it was more expensive it will a lot better... NOT!
It doesn't even bring a sponge or something to apply with, probably it mentioned it on the description and I overlooked it but I was very disappointed and all accounts. I need to call I see can some of the items I am not happy about can be returned.

Light feeling coverage
Purchased

I like using a light based foundation while working. This makes my uneven skin look great without the shiny look some mineral makeups leave.

Love!
Purchased

I have always used bare minerals but it feels like their formula has changed over the years. I really love that this powder is pressed so it is a lot less messy and goes on really great! It does not discolor my face at all. So glad I gave this product a try!

Good for sensitive skin, not so much for coverage
Purchased

I was kind of disappointed with this purchase. It's a very nice product for people who are sensitive to other foundations or powders, but I feel like I have to apply WAY too much to get the coverage I want. Maybe I need to buy the special brush for it, but I probably won't be purchasing this again.

Great powder foundation
Purchased

This is a wonderful foundation. The convenience of being in a compact is great. It can be layered for the coverage you need. The compact is sturdy.

This powder matches my skin tone well and it is very nice. I don't have irritated skin from it and it is lightweight.

very pleased...
Purchased

I recently purchased this product along with the chisel brush...I chose blush medium and am very happy with this product! Color is perfect for medium toned skin. Yeah the brush sheds a bit, but not a lot. It really covers everything!!! Stays matte and don't get stuck in my lines and wrinkles. Its silky smooth, slight dewy appearance, and I just love it! Will use this as my new foundation...very pleased. Thank you Birchbox!
