As much of a makeup junkie as I am, I have only owned one MAC product - a lipstick in a very trendy color that I no longer wear. So maybe my delight with this product will come as no surprise. I was in need of a new foundation. In the last few years I've developed adult cystic acne, and have scars along my chin and jawline. My well-known brand of mineral makeup just wasn't cutting it for me anymore. I looked at several high-end brands of foundation and decided to go with the MAC. I bought it online, through their website, after I did the foundation matching. I chose N3, as I am very fair, and was hoping it would be the right shade. I didn't want to go to a counter because I KNOW I would have walked away with a few hundred dollars worth of products I really don't need.

I was dead on with the shade. It's the perfect shade for me. Combined with my concealer (Smashbox Photo Ready), it covered my scars. Even covered a stubborn eczema scar I have on my right cheek, that NO makeup had been able to cover before. I was out tonight, and noticed that under a very harsh light in a restroom, my face still looked flawless. I do have an oily t-zone, and I looked a bit shiny, but it was almost dewy, not overly oily. I just blotted it with a blotting paper and it went away - none of the foundation actually transferred.

I can't describe in any other way how impressed I am with this foundation! I used a dry oil and a primer on my face before I applied it. I buffed it on with this very dense Laura Geller kabuki-type brush and it came out perfect. I'm so so so happy!

Now that I've been using this product for a while, I can mention a few other things about it. It works the best when I use my Hot Pink BB cream as a primer. I use the BB, then my concealer, then my Studio Fix, then finish with just a tiny bit of HD powder across my nose and forehead, where my pores are largest. My skin looks incredible and you can't see any of my scars. The difference in appearance is dramatic. I love this foundation sooooo much and will continue to use it! I've noticed that I only use a small amount to achieve a flawless look, so it's definitely worth the price I paid too! I don't know how else to express my joy and love for this foundation. You just have to try it yourself. ...read more

This powder is amazing! It provides amazing coverage and actually keeps your skin looking shine-free all day! It is so light on the skin and doesn't feel or look cakey, plus is has a bit of a fruity smell when you first put it on, which is surprisingly nice. It blends so well and the compact is extremely portable (but it doesn't come with a sponge)! The shade selection is not great and you will hit pan fast if you use it every day, but if you can find a shade that works for you, this powder is 100% worth it! ...read more

The other day I was buying donuts and the girl behind the register had the most beautiful, glowing, flawless skin I had ever seen. I immediately asked her about her entire makeup regimen and she told me that she uses Bare Minerals. I am a total product junkie but Bare Minerals is a product I had never even really considered because I was turned off by the endless late-night infomercials. The next day I rushed to Ulta and bought the pressed foundation like the girl said she used, but after a poor color match I ended up exchanging it for a loose powder which I think I like a little better. The loose powder seems easier to build up coverage somehow.

I think this is a truly amazing product for the right person/purpose. My skin is oily, breakout-prone and I always hated the thought of liquid foundation on my skin. I survived all of my 20s wearing only concealer and a little powder on my skin. After having my daughter, my skin seemed to need a little extra help. I looked tired all the time and the hormone changes didn't do my skin any favors. I felt uneven and blotchy. I started using liquid foundation but I found that I was having breakouts almost every week. I even bought a dermatologist tool so I could extract my pores nightly after removing all the makeup. I had to wear more and more makeup to cover the blemishes and that caused me to have more blemishes. I just wanted something light and non pore-clogging with moderate coverage. Bare Minerals is the perfect product for that. It covers so much better than I expected, leaves my skin feeling flawless and glowing and I don't get super oily an hour after putting my makeup on like I used to. My breakouts have all cleared up after 2 days of using this product; My skin is probably the clearest it's been in over a year and feels super healthy and radiant. I don't know why I never really gave Bare Minerals a chance before but I'm so glad I finally did. ...read more

I LOVE this powder. When it says " super-blendable" they were not lying! I use the shade W5 sand beige and this color goes so nice with my skin in the summer as well as in the winter. It feels super light and sets the make up very well. I tend to place more product under my eyes to set my concealer and cream highlighter and it does not crease nor transfer down my face. I will forever keep using this powder and recommend it to everyone! This will be perfect if you also have oily skin. I recommend using the liquid foundation from L'Oreal Infallible with this powder. They go very nice together if you have oily skin like I do. ...read more

I absolutely love this pressed powder, I might be a little biased because it's the only one I have tired. When I put it on my skin it evens my skin tone and covers small redness, it isn't the most full coverage powder but if you build up the amount you use it would be full coverage.
I preferred to use my own power brush by NATIO because the little soft pad thing that came with the pressed powder seemed to "suck up" all the powder leaving barley anything to go on your skin, which to me is a waste.
I purchased the 310 SUN BEIGE I have tanned olive skin and it suited me well, it looked every natural on my skin unless there was to much on my brush. There is a massive range of Maybelline colours or tones for you to choose from so it shouldn't be a big hassle once find your preferred colour or tone to match your skin.
I would recommend this product to anyone how isn't looking for a full face of makeup. To use it as a setting powder works well too.
