Love this stuff! I am not exaggerating by giving this product a 5. I have tried my fair share of mineral makeup and this one's a winner.

As many, I started of with Bare Minerals. My mother had given it to me to try and help me with my "less than perfect skin." I tried it for a while, but was never really happy. The coverage seemed heavy and the color was not right...it looked like I was wearing makeup. I tried a few others from department store brands to drugstore brands: Neutrogena, Physician's Formula, Urban Decay, Jane Irredale, etc. I thought I had found winners with both Jane Irredale, and Urban Decay, but the coverage still didn't seem natural.

I am a fan of Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer, so during my next refill, I asked the sales rep for a sample of their Mineral Powder. The sample to my surprise lasted me a few weeks and allowed me to fully trial it before committing.

This stuff is magical. The coverage and colors are natural (I am East Indian, so my skin color can be tough to match) A tiny bit goes a long way. I bought a full-size product about 6 months ago and am not even a quarter through. It does not irritate my sensitive skin and  I am pleased that it contains SPF 15 to provide me with some sunscreen protection. The best thing is I don't feel like I'm wearing any makeup!

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read

I've been wanting to transition out of my powdered foundation for some mineral makeup, but have yet to find one that I've really liked yet.  Thanks for this suggestion though, this one might be the winner because I already like Laura Mercier cosmetics!
