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 it Works

The formula is made up of finely crushed mineral pigments, which even out skin tone and also have natural light-reflecting properties — that’s what gives you a soft focus glow. It has titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, which block out UV rays, as well as shea butter and vitamin E to keep skin healthy.

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.

I have been trying to order this product to see howit works for me, yet have beeb unsuccesful in my timing. Each time I place it in my bag, and believe I have the correct color, it seems to be out of stock. I look forward to trying it and making sure I have the correct skin tone match!

Love!

This is the only foundation I will use. You can apply as much/little you want with great coverage. I will not buy any other powder foundation. I am sad birchbox has been sold out for a long time:(

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.

Wow
Purchased

Believe what you've heard about this product! I never ever wear powder because it always feels really heavy on my face. I decided to give this a try due to the reviews. I bought it in blush medium. This product is lightweight and provides great coverage. I don't even feel like I'm wearing makeup with this. The only downside is that it did not come with a makeup brush so I had to buy that separately and it was a bit pricey for the brush itself. Other than that this product is wonderful and I wear it everyday!

Love this powder

This has great coverage. I use this with the PUR primer and tinted moisturizer for a great all day coverage.

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.

Nice coverage
Purchased

I have bought this product and really like it . It has great coverage and you don't look all powdery after applying it. It covers rosacea and just gives your face a smooth, even toned appearance. I don't have very nice skin, but I have gotten compliments on it when I use this powder. I am over 50.

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.
