I love this product. I first used it on my wedding day 3 years ago and have been hooked ever since. Even in the heat and sun on my wedding day it lasted from the morning into the night. I find with daily application a powder lasts me around 6 months. Although it is more expensive than your drug store brands the amount you get from it brings the average yearly cost down. in combination with other Jane iredale products this powder has excellent coverage. I find that it covers up those breakouts better than other products I've tried. My absolute favourite thing about this product is how light it feels on your face and how natural it looks, there is no Cakey makeup feel/look. I will continue to use this product and have already referred it to multiple friends. The case that this comes in is also great and makes it super easy to throw in your purse. The one downfall would be that the sponge that comes with it tears easily and never outlives the makeup.
Skin type: sensitive, normal/dry, occasional breakouts
I've been using this foundation for the past three years and love it. I have hyper pigmentation left from breakouts, bug bites, etc. and use the flocked sponge to press the product into my skin in order to get more coverage. Even with more coverage this foundation never feels heavy. If you need less coverage, then apply with a brush. Once I've finished applying, I spritz my face with Mac Fix+ to soften the overall look and to add a bit of glow. This step isn't necessary as the product blends into the skin once it settles but it's part of my routine. My skin gets very dry during the winter and this doesn't make my face look flakey at all.
Didn't think i'd ever be able to love a non liquid -mineral foundation but I do!
It takes a while to get used to but it's worth it because it doesn't cause breakouts!!
if your skin tends to be on the dryer side, apply a moisturizer before using the foundation
and it will apply much easier!
If you have problematic skin then give this a try! it may be a little pricey but worth every penny!
Jane Iredale is the perfect solution to my Rosacea problems. Great coverage- so good in fact that when I go 'au naturel' friends and family ask if I have a sunburn. Doesn't irritate my super-sensitive skin, either! Have been using for more than five years now.
This is the first foundation that gives me great looking skin and doesn't cause a break out ever. It's also the only foundation that makes me look like I have alabaster skin (perfect colour). I have the handi brush which I find can waste some of the product so I use the sponge applicator. Love it!
I have a love/hate relationship with this powder (mostly love!). I use it as my every day foundation. It gives a light-medium coverage and has spf 20, which is a must for me because I have fair skin and burn easily. It looks pretty natural and gives a nice semi-matte finish, and lasts for quite a few hours (I have oily skin). I love that is has minimal ingredients (talc-free, paraben-free, etc.). I think the price of this powder is exorbitant, however, and you are definitely paying for the Jane Iredale name (which is annoying). I really wish I could find a cheaper alternative for this, but so far I can't, so I continue to buy it.
My favourite powder. It lasts forever...you can use it lightly or more heavily on blemishes. Use with a nice make-up brush to get a better finish. I am a neutral ivory in most foundations, I ordered ivory and it matched perfectly.
Amazing coverage, soft look without looking giving foundation that caked on look.
Never causes break out.
Hands-down my all-time favourite pressed powder. It's made from all natural minerals so it's great for your skin and doesn't clog your pores. It comes in so many great shades, I usually use Caramel and Golden Glow mixed together (for contouring). It comes in this cute little metal compact, perfect for travel, and there's a mirror in there too.
It goes on SO nicely, blends perfectly with your skin, and doesn't look like you're wearing anything. A little goes a long way too, and I find one compact will last me around 6months or more. I honestly love this product, it's been my go-to for years now, and has never failed to disappoint! Gives me flawless coverage, and as a bonus it's SPF25! It's also recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.
