Mary Kay® Mineral Powder Foundation is a weightless, skin-perfecting powder that makes lines, wrinkles and other imperfections seem to disappear. You get the coverage of a foundation with the comfort of a powder. It’s a foundation. It’s a powder. It’s a skin perfecter. That’s the beauty of Mary Kay® Mineral Powder Foundation. It allows you to even out your skin tone to get a flawless look and beautiful base for color cosmetics.

Application Tips:

  1. Gently shake the Mary Kay® Mineral Powder Foundation jar (with the lid on) to dispense the foundation.
  2. Remove the lid and lightly dip the Mary Kay® Powder Foundation Brush into the foundation.
  3. Tap the brush against the rim of the jar to remove the excess foundation.
  4. Then, swirl the brush inside the lid to work the powder foundation into the bristles. Apply the foundation first to the center of your face and work your way out toward the hairline and jawline, blending well.

Key Ingredients:

Mica is a transparent mineral that has an opalescent quality.

Minerals occur naturally in the earth, have a lightweight texture and provide luminosity and radiance to the skin. All minerals found in nature undergo extensive purification and processing before they are incorporated into a cosmetic product.

Boron Nitride provides a smooth, velvety feel and helps makeup wear longer.

Dimethicone is derived from silica, provides a silky feel and helps protect skin and improve its appearance.

    This is the first foundation I ever used so it’s very nostalgic. I love the packaging. It’s really easy to use. It’s really similar to the bareMinerals Original Loose Powder Foundation SPF 15 and has similar coverage and wear time. It’s great for oily skin and people who want a more natural to matte finish.

    I love this product in the summer. It's nice for those days when you do that want to wear a lot of makeup and heavy foundation. You just put some powder on and it evens out your skin tone and you're ready for the day. It comes in different shades to match any color

    I like this foundation. It happens to be the only one of their foundations that matches my skin tone. (Mary Kay your shade range sucks and I am not even going to get started on how hard it must be for Women of Color to find shades with you. Do Better!) This is not full coverage. I have to use quite a bit of concealer beneath it for it to look right. I enjoy using this as a finishing powder for my liquid foundations from other brands quite a bit. The price is decent. Most of the time you can get deals with your Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant, or if you are one then this foundations is only $10 (that’s a big bonus!).

    I bought this powder at a consignment shop for 3 dollars unopened. I figured I would give it a try.... I am so grateful I did. Best $3 I ever spent. I absolutely love this powder (I bought the brush too) it's so light, but overs everything at the same time. It gives you the velvety soft skin and flawless look. I was stunned at how this foundation worked on me. I loved it so much that I went back the next day and bought the last one they had there. It doesn't get much better than this

    I like this foundation. I’m highly disappointed that it’s the only Mary Kay foundation that matches my skin tone. The shade range on this foundation and all of Mary Kay’s foundations leaves a lot to be desired. I don’t like that one of the first ingredients is talc. It does a good job though and it helps to absorb oil pretty well. I like to use this over a liquid foundation as more of a finishing powder. The container is nice. I like to shake a little into the lid and use a fluffy brush to apply my makeup. I think it’s great for travel because you can turn the lid and it locks it so it won’t shake any product out.

    I love Mary Kay's Mineral Fountain Powder!
    I hadn't used a powder fountain before this, and barely bothered with fountain in general, but that all changed the first time I used this!
    I have always been fair skinned with naturally rosy cheeks and I have always been self conscious about it. My cheeks flush easily and I'm often asked if I'm okay because of it. My Mary Kay consultant advised me to use a medium tone powder to counteract the redness of my cheeks and it has changed my life!
    This powder is seriously perfect. It's lightweight, it doesn't clog your pores, it provides even coverage, and it's easy to apply. It's gentle enough for every day use without the threat of breakouts, even on days when I would forget to wash it off (okay, I didn't always forget, sometimes I was just lazy!). The powder goes on easily and blends well, so no streaks or clumps. It's so lightweight that you can completely forget you even put it on, but it LASTS! It covers my rosy red cheeks without making me look heavily made up, I completely forget it's there, and I don't have to reapply it!
    The top has a twisting action that allows you to open it, sprinkle out just the right amount of powder, and then twist it closed. There's no annoying sticker to fight with, and no mess inside for girls like me who skip the powder puff and use a kabuki brush. That alone is probably my favorite thing about this powder, and I have yet to find another like it.
    Everything about this powder is perfect. I absolutely love it and can't recommend it highly enough!

    This product can become cakey if you use too much. My favorite way to use it is to apply with a damp beauty sponge and set around my t-zone and undereyes. I let it sit while I do my eyebrows and then I dust it away using the excess to set the rest of my face and then spray a face mist and press it into the skin with my sponge. It takes away the powdery look and keeps my makeup in place. I've never noticed flashback. It's one of my favorite powders.

    i decided to try this because during the summer, i hate wearing liquid foundations. it's too heavy on my face when i'm sweating. This product is great, but if you have rosacea like me, you'll need to layer it and spray your face with setting spray in between layers. other than that it's a great product. I've gotten so many compliments on my skin while i'm wearing it

    I cannot day enough good things about this mineral powder! I have been using this for 12 years and I love it. You can control the coverage - so you can make it full coverage or very light coverage. It looks wonderful in pictures both day and flash photography with 0 flashback and makes skin look glowing and even. I use a lot of different colors as highlight, contour and all over coverage. I even use it for eye shadow to give a nice natural finish to eyelids. I’ve tried many drug store brands and high end brands of mineral powder and nothing compares to this.

    What brand and type of foundation is a great for super duper oily skin? I use only mineral powder because liquid makes my skin even more oily. So, what is a great mineral powder for really oily skin?

    From what I have seen and experienced Mary Kay uses a lot of chemicals in their products. Is the mineral powder any different?
