          This was an item I bought on sale and on a whim, I have been extremely impressed by its coverage, the only com being that I do have to touch up the t zone because my skin is oily, I will be trying a new oil control primer soon though, so hopefully this will solve that small con.

              I love the this product. I definitely think that this ulta product is just as good as the bare minerals powder foundation. I actually use it to contour my full face. I'm fair skinned and I buy the fair 03 and the dark 01. It blends nicely and I think it makes me look fabulous!

                Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

                This is an excellent full coverage powder foundation. I've used a lot of powder foundations mostly from online companies and this is one of my top choices because of the coverage.

                I didn't notice that it lasted any less time than any other powder foundations that I've used.

                Can't beat it for the price.

                Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

                For a Mineral Foundation this product performs in the average way any mineral foundation would. I think Ulta does have a great color selection as well. However, the bismuth in this product is heavy so for sensitive skin it will cause breakouts & mature or damaged skin beware, the shimmer in the Bismuth will accentuate all visible pores & acne scarring.

                Because of the Bismuth I wouldnt recommend it for a full foundation for everyone, but Ive been using it as a spot concealer by spraying a bit of setting spray on a concealer brush and then dabbing the powder on belmishes. That works smashingly as an alternative use if the bismuth is too much for your liking.

                          We suggest Warm 03 (medium to deep with yellow/golden undertones) as your best match, though we recommend viewing this shade at your nearest ULTA store to ensure it's perfect for you:
