      Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

      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.

              Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

              I first came into an Ulta store to buy another Name Brand mineral foundation, but the price of the Ulta brand was so much lower that I gave it a try. I'm so glad that I did, and I've been a loyal user for 3-4 years now. The coverage is good but not heavy. I use a liquid concealer around my eyes and blemishes, then blend and cover all over with this foundation. I do have to reapply or at least touch up if I'm going out after a day at work, but I have somewhat oily skin, so this is not too surprising. Also, I don't use the finishing powder because I like the natural looking finish of the foundation (the finishing powder becomes too matte for my taste), so this might affect the staying-power too.

              Overall this is a great product at an unbeatable value (especially with sale prices!)

                Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

                I am a long time Bare Minerals user but it's expensive, so I thought I would try the Ulta brand as it was buy one get one free. Love it. I notice very little difference in the products and actually think the color match is better with Ulta. I would say try it at least once.

                    Love, love, love this foundation. You can make it light coverage. Very easy to blen. I was a bare minerals girl but I like the Ulta better. I think the Ulta has better color matches. Not bagging on bare minerals but now that I've found Ulta I'm going to be sticking with it.
