          Excellent value. Something quick to apply. Blends without lines and a great cost effective mineral makeup. I buy at least 4 at a time!

              Was told by associate that it was better than Bare Mineral products - not true, clogs and does not cover reddness. Looks like I'm not wearing any cover up.

                      I wish there were more color options. I chose fair and it is actually very light for my skin. I wish there was an "in between". I usually use Bare Minerals and I was trying to save some money. For half the price, it is a great buy.

                        I use as a concealer under Laura Geller Balance and Brighten foundation. I used to use Bare Minerals but this works just as well and costs less.

                          I liked the easy application and feel of the product; however, the product settled into my pores or wore off. I do not like to reapply foundation and this one I had to in order to keep the clear coverage. Won't be buying this one again and may just give up on Mineral Powder Foundation altogther.

                              We suggest Warm 03 as the most similar shade; this shade is ideal for medium-to-deep skin tones with warm golden undertones.

                              Medium 01 for medium skin tones with warm/golden undertones may be your best match. We recommend viewing this shade at your nearest ULTA store:
