    Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

    I use liquid foundation and I use powder to set my liquid. The Ulta in my town is consistently terrible about restocks so instead of buying the Ulta brand setting powder I had to settle for this powder foundation. I have a fair complexion with some acne/acne scarring, and this product does not appear cakey over my liquid foundation. Beware: this product does contain Mica which can be harmful to acne-prone skin so even I have to make sure I remove all my makeup at night. I have not used it alone because the coverage would not nearly be enough as I would want, but its still a good product.

      Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

      I have freckles and occasional blemishes. Generally I go for heavy coverage. This product can be used for anything from light to heavy coverage. Just a small amount goes so far and leaves your skin looking amazing. This might be the best foundation powder ever because it has allowed me to wear less makeup while making my skin looks better than ever. I even got my mother who is in her 60s to start using this product which shows that it's versatile as well. This is a must buy game changer

        Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

        I haven't been able to find a powder foundation that is correct for my fair skin but this product is very close. The only problem I had with is was that the foundation wasn't coming through the holes of the applicator so getting the right amount of foundation applied was hard. It also gives the skin a shimmer which is a plus if you do not own a highlighter. Will buy this product again!

                It's a great full coverage powder for when you're on-the-go I love to just throw this on with a little blush and eyeliner and run out the door I would recommend this to anyone, it's really great for on-the-go touch-ups.

                    I've been trying to find a powder to put over my foundation and. ...viola! ! This is the best product that doesnt break your bank account. I was real skeptical at buying it at first because you always think price =better product/superior.Not the case here.....absolutely love this powder. Coverage is fantastic and makes your face look flawsless.....being 52 yrs old....that's saying something. Thanks Ulta!! Please don't discontinue or change it.

                        Fair 01C (light with cool pink undertones) is likely your best match! However, it is always best to test the shade in person at your nearest Ulta Beauty store with the assistance of a beauty associate. :-)
