      I love, absolutely love this product! I purchased medium 03 which gives my fair skin a little boost. A little goes a long way when you use primer. This goes on well and stays on throughout the day. You can't go wrong with this great a product for this price.

          I have been a huge bare minerals user for years and my skin tends to break out easy and bare minerals has always done the job, but I get tired of paying their prices and every once In a while I will try an off brand, but I am always disappointed :( NOT with this product!!!!!! I'm hooked and defiantly will buy again. Only down fall is it doesn't smell as pure as bare minerals, but lasts all day. I have now purchased other Ulta products to try and so far have been very happy. Thanks Ulta!

          I have fair to medium skin tone. I chose the lightest medium and it goes on easily but it cakes. I have to blend like crazy for a mineral makeup. It doesn't stay on and i get patches on my skin where it comes off.

            I have fair skin, I just have to be careful not to use too much. By the end of the day it seems like it has worn off, but it does look really natural when you are applying makeup. I use it everyday so my fair skin doesn't look too pale.

                Just as any loose powder this settles in my fine lines and makes me look older. Also sort of an orange color tint.

                I love this product! I use it when I need a little more coverage and I also use this as a setting powder. I find that this gives me a more natural look than the actual finishing powder. I dont like using it alone and it doesnt give as much coverage alone as i would like. But it works great with a liquid foundation.

                This makeup is easy to apply and gives very good
                coverage, however my skin did look more dry and
                I found my face breaking out. I stopped using
                the product and the breakouts are not as bad.
                This product probably is better for less mature
                skin. Some mineral powder makeups do cause problems and unfortunately you only find this
                out after you start using them. This product may
                be fine for others, but I will not buy it, again

It covers wonderfully and stays put all day long and the price is so affordable. I have fallen in love with this makeup and the finishing powder too. I will never use anything else ever again. I can't say enough about this product.I LOVE IT!

                • Q:

                  I have very very fair skin, that dries out fairly easily, sensitive, and can be prone to blemishes. Which fair shade is the lightest? Do I Apply this with a Brush or Sponge? Will this provide Coverage for scarred pores/blemished skin? And will this leave me oily (which sometimes happens with some make up brands).

                    This product is formulated for all skin types and is noncomedogenic (won't clog pores). The lightest shade is Fair 01. This foundation provides buildable coverage from sheer to full and can be applied using a makeup sponge or a powder foundation brush depending on personal preference. This product is oil-free.

                  I currently am using the bare minerals matte c25 which is a medium color, but now I am not as tan as I was so I'd need something lighther. Along those color lines though, which would the best fair or lighther shade in this product for me. Currently I also use maybelline dream liquid mousse in porcelain ivory and it is VERY close to my skin color. Just don't want to use liquid anymore

                    Absolutely, ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation pairs beautifully with ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20. Using ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20 underneath your foundation will help to add additional coverage, extend your foundation's wear, and provide hydration and sun protection benefits.
