wierd color

I bought this with high hopes after reading all the 5 star reviews. It made me look weird like a yellowish tone. It did last all day I usually have to reapply I have oily skin but when I looked in the mirror It was such a strange color like I was sick.

Wonderful product

I’ve worn it for years, but after moving to Florida needed to graduate to slightly darker shades a couple of times. Buying the refills and snapping them into the old compact is more economical, and just as satisfactory. I apply it with a Jane Iredale brush, and get a very natural look along with protection from the sun.

Best for my skin

The largest organ on our body is our skin and I wanted a makeup that was mineral based. A few years ago when I started hosting a TV show, an esthetician in a local spa recommended this brand of makeup. I loved the latte color for my complexion and my skin seemed to like it to as I had 0 breakouts or reaction to using it. I just reordered too! As a guy who needs makeup for hosting this is the brand for me. Light and goes on nicely with consistent coverage. Smile!

Perfect makeup

This might just be the most perfect makeup option on the market. It provides even smooth coverage whether you like a light finished look or full coverage makeup. I do recommend ordering the Jane Iredale Handi brush to apply the foundation. It looks much smoother when applied with the brush. I also recommend a heavier moisturizer if your skin tends to be dry since this is a powder foundation. If you’ve never tried their foundation, visit their website to help pick the perfect color, but I usually buy from Amazon since I can find it cheaper there.

If you buy this product in an authentic form from a reputable seller then it will be a dream come true. I have been using this foundation for about a year and would not consider switching to anything else. Along with my Tarte airbrush brush, it creates almost flawless base. I have slight melasma and it covers most of the discoloration. It never cakes (if applied with the tarte brush) and it is pretty good at controlling oil production. My one suggestion is to go into a store that sells this product to get color matched because their color palette is off. I am using a color called Golden Glow and I am pretty white yet it somehow matched my undertones perfectly. Also keep in mind that this foundation goes fast so be prepared to replace it every two months or so if used daily.

theeeeeeeeeeeeee best!!

I tried this makeup a few years ago and when I ran out, tried some other brand and foundations…..I don’t know why I strayed…..this is the best out there. It goes on as light or heavy as you want it to……it looks very natural and my skin is healthier when i use this versus foundations with oils, not hesitate to try it…..and, it last a long long time

Best powder ever

Glides on nicely over skin. It doesn’t look too heavy. I like that it has an SPF to protect my skin. Doesn’t break me out.

The best foundation and powder in one!

This is my go to foundation/powder. I always try to find a cheaper drugstore version but I always come back to this and will now only use it. No liquid foundation needed which is great as I have sensitive, acne-prone skin. It cleans up your flaws and looks so natural. Very lightweight and no greasy feeling even several hours later. I love it!

I won’t go back to any other make up. This is it!

I have tried various foundations and this one is by far my favorite! I have pink undertone, mildly sensitve skin and this covers blemishes and undereye circles well. It makes my face look silky smooth and lasts all day without getting oily or shiny. I would highly recommend anyone to try Jane Iredale’s line of makeup. Please note that the best place to find this makeup is online. Some of the Pure Beauty stores have it but it is rarely in stock because it sells out very quickly..Goodbye Bare Escentials!

WOW factor!

AMAZING! I have been looking for the EXACT shade for over 22 yrs and I have found it in golden glow! I am mixed and have a more yellowish undertone and VERY hard to find any kind of makeup with more yellow in it. Usually I get a beige muddy look (almost ruddy) and/or a pinkish undertone. I HATE looking two-toned. This takes the redness out and matches the rest of my body from the neck down and it’s amazing in photos! I ordered a sample from Bloft cosmetics for $7 since I wasn’t sure what my exact shade was and I wasn’t about to shell out that much money for a product that didn’t match (just like every other foundation/powder) and I’m sure glad I found a sample which has a decent amount btw. I stiple it on my face with my philosophy multi brush and so far that is The best method and best brush IMO. I never really used it but only for blending into my nose and around my nose area and under my eyes but using it to stiple and then blend and stiple works flawlessy! My face is so smooth and flawless and almost as if I am not wearing makeup. I cannot stress enough how much a miracle this is to me. I am def purchasing the refill, not sure about the compact but who knows, I think I am becoming a Jane Iredale fan! Just in case you are wondering, I am NC30(winter) and NC35 (summer)…as of now, I am the lightest NC30 and this is perfect! My pores don’t react to this and I don’t break out…this stuff looks much more better than Bareminerals or any other foundation I have ever tried! Even better than MAC mineralized skin finish! Mac looks more made up but this is so natural and you can easily build it up to a more made up look as well. I am def going to try their hydration spray and their BB cream!!!

great for all times

This is the best foundation.. Holy Grail

I love Jane Iredale pressed base mineral foundation and have recommended it to many friends. First off, I would definitely recommend using a kabuki style brush to apply it for more coverage (and tap off excess) if you do this, it provides great coverage, and this is coming from someone with freckles, hyperpigmentation etc. All I use is sunscreen under this, my JI pressed powder and then a little concealer where I need it more (under eyes, around nose etc) It evens out my skin, looks very natural, and never breaks me out. I would highly recommend!!

My Holy Grail Makeup!

My skin has always been oily, acne prone, and sensitive yet this makeup makes my skin look amazing! I have been using this for a while now and I’ve never broken out once, even after 15 hrs straight wear time. I’ve even fallen asleep in it after a long day (which you should NEVER do no matter how good your skin is) and I didn’t have a breakout. In photos my skin looks healthy and glowing and it matches me perfectly so I never have that "ghost face" look. Yes, it’s a little pricey but for what it does for my skin, I am willing to fork over the money if it keeps me from spending even more money trying to correct the breakouts or coverage issues a cheaper makeup will do. Even if I only wear this with a bit of mascara and gloss, I still look put together and feel pretty. I love this foundation and highly recommend to anyone who has issues with their complexion. Bonus: It’s also a sunblock. Can’t go wrong with this product!

Apply with brush

Use the "Handi" brush for beautiful, natural coverage of skin flaws. Also protects from the sun! You just need a little bit for an effect.
