        Been using this for years - best powder ever. Natural looking. Silky texture. Great for olive/slightly yellow skin tones. Nude and soft beige are good matches. Hides my blemishes and uneven skin tones just enough, without looking like I have make up on. I've used it alone and it's ok, it just doesn't even out my skin tone enough.

              I just bought this after using a brand which was double the price. This powder matches my skin tone perfectly (unlike the other brand) and the powder doesn't make a mess when I apply it. It's nice and light but also gives some nice coverage, I don't like liquid foundation so this is great!

                Comments about Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation:

                This is a great product. It's affordable and when blended correctly, it looks almost as good as a higher end foundation, and lasts almost as long. However, it does contain parabens so if you are allergic or find that they irritate your eyes or skin, this may not be the foundation for you.

                  Comments about Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation:

                  I fell in love with this the first time I used it. It is better than my MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation. The coverage can be sheer to medium, depending on how you apply it. The sponge it comes with works great for application. I usually put it over a BB cream or foundation, and it works well to set it and cover any imperfections the BB cream didn't cover. It doesn't flake or worsen the red patches on my cheeks. Unscented, no shimmer, and a smooth finish that doesn't look powdery or white. The color you see in the compact is how it will look when applied. I purchased this in classic ivory 10, and it it a perfect match for my fair/light warm skin tone. This powder is a hidden gem, and is my all time favorite powder. Depending on the foundation or BB cream I use, if I blot and reapply, it will last all day. Such a great product at a very affordable price. I would recommend this for anyone with oily/very oily skin looking for good coverage, oil/shine control, smooth feel, and matte finish.

                  Comments about Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation:

                  I am 43 with fair and very sensitive skin and a mainly normal skin type (dry in winter). I have worn higher retail "makeup counter" cosmetics since I've been 17 and recently was wearing Bare Minerals for many years but it started to make my skin dry and dull.

                  With my effort to cut costs in my budget, I have been trying to find a suitable drugstore brand.

                  I have recently discovered that other than titanium dioxide, I am allergic to cosmetic sunscreens. (I have always thought I was and wished they would make non-SPF versions across the board in cosmetics.)

                  This Neutrogena "mineral" makeup pressed compact is acceptable for my everyday wear, though I wish it were a bit better. (I say "mineral" because the list of ingredients is a mile long and includes parabens and a few other chemicals that aren't that great.) I do not use the foam sponge but apply it with my makeup brush. I cannot tell the difference between wearing primer under it or just applying it on my clean face. It is buildable, but you will need to use concealer for blemishes. I have had success with both creamy and powder concealer with it. I think I might have Roseacea on one cheek (no thanks to this change up in trying different makeups) and this makeup does a good job of covering the red splotch and evening out my skintone. The "20 Natural Ivory" matches my pink undertone skin. It is lightweight, does not make my face itch, and has not given me much of a reaction other than a blemish here and there. It does well in the 100 degree heat here in Georgia and does not make me shiny and does not melt off in the humidity. It seems to last all day without any touchup. And, it does not seem to rub off easily but washes off easily.

                  The only thing I don't like is that with use of an application brush I seem to use a lot of the makeup. (The sponge is about worthless in my opinion.) I have had it 2 weeks, have not worn it every day and have just hit the metal container today. I am going to try the loose powder version next to see if it lasts longer.

                      I love this powder foundation. I use a BB cream on my face, which I love, but I am uncomfortable with the shine it leaves on my skin. This powder is so smooth and soft and gives me the matte finish I prefer without a lot of heaviness.
