This powder is a staple in my makeup collection! I use it on its own for quick "no makeup" days, over BB/CC cream or foundation to "set" it, and it's great to throw in your bag for an afternoon touch up. It seems to be very long lasting and I would say it has medium coverage with a natural matte finish. I never use the sponge that comes with it, only a brush to apply. My skin can be sensitive and this seems to really be gentle and doesn't cause breakouts.  The shade range is really big and nice also so there is a lot to choose from for every skin tone. I will repurchase this!

I walked into Sephora to buy an eye cream but I ended up getting foundation matched for a powder foundation cause I'd never used one before. The Sephora lady put it on and I kept it on for at least 7 hours... Bought it for myself the very next day. Absolutely love this powder foundation. I love the versatility it gives in terms of coverage. You can go from sheer to full in just a few strokes without feeling heavy or cakey.
Also, it works well with literally any kabuki brush so I wouldn't personally spend $30 on the complexion brush that comes with it from bare minerals.

This foundation is awesome. It makes my skin look flawless. It's a light to medium coverage foundation. I only need to apply concealer lightly in some areas after applying it. It doesn't clog my poors; however it is expensive.

Love this Pressed Powder! It works great as a medium coverage foundation by itself. But I love to use it most as a setting Powder for my Liquid foundation. I also use it to lightly touch up every 2 hours to get the spf protection we need. Very versatile. Perfect for setting, touching up, and alone.

I am so sad I have to give this a low rating because the formula and application was amazing but I went the actual bare minerals store and got colored matched but when I applied at home the colors was ORANGE! I even bought the brush to apply it with and the brush is so soft and amazing! But the color 😭

Works great for everyday use! If you’re looking for a powder you can just sweep on and go this is the product for you! I was skeptical about just wearing a powder foundation but after weeks of using it I’m in love! You can just sweep it on the skin for a natural look or even use a sponge or finger to apply more coverage to certain areas. I thought with the oily skin that it would just melt away after a few hours but am I wrong. I definitely would recommend setting it with a setting spray to get the longest wear time out of it. I will be repurchasing this product until it gets discontinued!

I used this for about a month and had to stop. My skin was always breaking out and my skin ended up regretting the foundation. It was very patchy on the skin and didn’t sit well. This isn’t a full coverage powder and if you wanna have a medium coverage you waste a lot of the product to get there. I wouldn’t recommend especially if you have combination to dry skin.

Con: this line didn’t have a match to my correct skin tone and color😕

Great powder foundation! I loved the coverage and finish. I hate powdery and cakey foundations as they do not look natural. I think makeup should enhance your features and not mask them. I have acne scars and dark spots, like under eye circles that I like to cover up and even out my skin tone. This powder did the job and still looked beautiful on my skin. The price is reasonable, as I believe most BM products are compared to other brands. Shade range is good in my opinion, I found my perfect match! Overall , I would definitely buy again.

I LOVE this powder! It helps control oils really well and gives a beautiful finish! My oily complaint is I wish there were more shades. The price isn’t too bad for high end and it lasts a while. I definitely recommend

This has a buildable but breathable coverage. I like that it stays mostly matte throughout the day without a primer. It’s only downside to it is that the color line for any cool tones is not really there. I’ve had to try multiple colors to find the right one. I use it with a normal kabuki brush and “buff” it on. I got this at Sephora which doesn’t have a full range of colors that is online. Shown in picture is Warm Light 07.
