    Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

    I have VERY sensitive skin, so I have to be careful about the products I use. While I like a good deal, I can't afford to sacrifice quality, so in cases where the more expensive name-brand products are better than the store-brand, I will always willingly pay the extra money. In this case, though, having tried many different mineral foundations over the years, I can honestly say that the Ulta Minerals is very much on par with many of its far pricier name-brand counterparts. I would rate it similarly to Bare Minerals in quality and coverage. The only mineral foundation I have found that I like more is the Mica foundation, as I feel it lasts a bit longer, and requires less product for decent coverage, but given the difference in price, Ulta Minerals is now my go-to foundation.

    Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

    I have oily skin that is starting to mature, as I'm approaching my 40s. This is a light weight mineral powder, but does not offer the versatile coverage as Bare Minerals. It also settles into fine lines...lines I didn't even know I had, until trying this. I think this would make for a better finishing powder for me than an actual mineral foundation.

      Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

      After years of going foundation-less due to my sensitive skin, and usually just use concealer when needed, I decided to give it another shot. I have been reading reviews online on various products, and was leaning towards a liquid foundation since it's winter and my skin is already on the dry side. But this was on sale and had good reviews, and I remember really liking mineral makeup, so I went in today to test it knowing exactly the shade I thought would work. Well the selection was pretty picked over so I ended up buying a shade I thought might be too dark for me but that still had yellow undertones (there was no tester either). When I tried it at home, to my surprise it matched my skin tone perfectly. I have to look closely to even tell there's anything on my face, but it beautifully evens out any discoloration and leaves me with a soft, healthy glow. I think this will be perfect for my sensitive skin, but I can tell that it could accentuate any dry spots, so I'm going to try moisturizing more next time. All in all, very pleased!

        I don't normally use a cream foundation so I just use powder but I wanted something with more coverage. This does the job! Just make sure you know the right color to get.

                    • Q:

                      My skin is very sensitive, break out prone and can be very oily and dry in some places. Liquid make up seperates on my face within hours. Cream make up looks cakey on my skin. Mineral foundation is my last hope. Will this provide coverage for my acne and discoloration, while not breaking me out and stay on throughout the day? I have a usual 13 hour day. Most of the day is spent at cosmetology school and I hate my make up looking like a mess all day.

                        This product is noncomedogenic and won't clog pores, and it is formulated for all skin types. For best results on your skin, we suggest first applying an oil-free moisturizer and a mattifying primer. To eliminate flaky dryness, exfoliate your skin a few times weekly using a gentle scrub. This will ensure smooth application and lasting coverage. You may prefer to layer ULTA BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20 under your foundation; this product is oil-free and provides the benefits of a light tinted moisturizer, sunscreen, and primer in one:

                        Medium 05: Neutral Coloring, more beige (neither warm or cool) may be your best match, though we do recommend viewing this shade at your nearest ULTA store to ensure it is perfect for you:
