Love this foundation
I have been using Jane Iredale for about 2 years now. I love the coverage on this. You can wear it dry or even wet(Of course the wet gives you a heavier coverage). I have turned several friends on to this foundation and they are just as happy. Definitely worth a try!
Natural Coverage With Protection
I have used Amazing Base on and off for years. It is easy to use and improves the appearance of my aging skin. I carefully follow the application instructions that came with the product because the manufacturer has studied and tested the product. I have not needed to modify the instructions to suit me. The SPF 20 is significant. After washing my face, I apply a peptide moisturizer, micronized zinc oxide sunscreen cream SPF 28 and finish with Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder. I allow each layer of product to dry before applying the next layer. I do not use Iredale’s D20 Hydration Spray because the powder stays put on my face. I live in the southeast, so the climate is usually not dry. I do not know I am wearing makeup even though I get light coverage of some of the light brown spots on my face. I do not usually sleep without washing my face but this powder does not clog my pores. So an occasional night without the usual facial routine is not as risky as with a liquid foundation. This powder goes a long way and is worth the expense.
Best foundation I have found on the market. I have used it for years and always get compliments on my beautiful skin…it’s my Jane Iredale. Great price and fast shipping.
I use this and the Iredale pressed powder as a foundation. I like the loose powder a little bit better as I like that the powder itself seems to have a fluffier texture and seems to coat my skin a bit better than the pressed powder. The pressed powder is a quicker, easier, more portable, less "fluffy" version. They are both great. If you haven’t tried mineral make-up, you are in for a wonderful surprise. This stuff has great coverage and manages to look completely natural. And it’s fast and easy to apply. I am very fair, blonde, blue-eyed and use the bisque as foundation and the ivory as concealer.
What makes this brand better
I have been using this for years. To be honest, I don’t know that it is better than the less costly brands. However, it comes in a much greater color range. A very popular brand worked fine, but made my skin look yellow.
