    Comments about Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Loose Powder Foundation:

    I was looking for a drug store brand loose powder. I had never used this kind before and couldn't find the Loreal one I have been using, so I figured I would give it a shot. I ended up returning it after trying it out once. There was seemingly no coverage and the powder was very orange-based.

    It's better to use this powder with your own brush; the brush it comes with is sloppy and messy.

    I normally use liquid foundation, but this is a great option for quick weekend application or if you are in a time crunch. It comes with a brush, but I use a cosmetic pad to apply it.

            Comments about Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Loose Powder Foundation:

            I don't usually use this product by itself, but as a setting powder to a liquid foundation. Since its a foundation itself, I get double coverage that lasts all day. Also, because I use it as a setting powder, it lasts 2-3 times as long compared to if I were to use it as a foundation alone! Its a great product for the price!

            Best Uses

            • Acne prone skin
            • Daily
            • Oily skin

            Comments about Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Loose Powder Foundation:

            I originally bought this as a fluke to see if it would work as a setting powder for my ridiculously oily face. It has changed my make-up life.

            After trying every drugstore and ridiculously priced brand on the market, I have abandoned my previously settled-upon high-end liquid foundation, and would not go back to liquid foundations if you paid me. This stuff is that awesome.

            Packaging: A little messy if you're not careful. Protect your clothes and don't apply around anything that you can't wipe off. Toss the brush it comes with, it is 100% useless. Invest in a good kabuki brush/powder brush. This will allow you to properly blend the product.

            How I use it: I moisturize well, and use this product over a primer. I use a tiny bit of concealer and a cream or stain blush BEFORE applying this product. I do tap translucent powder onto the concealed zits to prevent smudging and apply the blush a little brighter than desired. Then blend blend blend! Fastest foundation application ever!

            Coverage: Light to medium. Incredibly natural. I was always afraid that a powder foundation would look cakey and fake, but this product proved me wrong! This does correct my mild redness, and with a tiny bit concealer over any acne and scars makes my skin look flawless. If you want heavy coverage this is not for you.

            On Acne-Prone Skin: I was afraid to try mineral makeup for YEARS because I heard that it makes you break out, and I already had at least 3 zits going at any given time. Everybody's skin is different, but I have had 0 (ZERO!!!) new breakouts after switching from liquid foundation. I am down to just waiting for those acne marks to heal. SCORE!

            On Oily Skin: I have used every oil control product known to woman without success. My face is melting by mid-morning. This is not a miracle fix, but it does not streak, get blotchy, or require a complete redo before going out a after work like a liquid foundation. It just looks shiny, I blot, and it's beautiful. No uneven color or weird smearing. It's also incredibly easy to touch up, just swirl a small amount around your face!

            Color: My one true complaint. Neutrogena is frequently too dark for me, even in the lightest available shade. I will try their compact version (although I love loose powder), and hopefully that will work. For this I dock one point.

            Try it out- it's cheap and Ulta's return policy is awesome!

            Better than bareminerals.

            Pros

            • Fine Grain
            • Light To Medium Coverage
            • Smooth Coverage

            Cons

              Best Uses

              • Everyday
              • Non Formal Occasions

              Comments about Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Loose Powder Foundation:

              Best use for everyday use. Best for non-formal occasions. Can be used as setting powder or by itself, both ways it has light to medium, smooth coverage. Believe it is better than bareminerals because it doesn't ever go on patchy and it doesn't turn orange on my skin throughout the day.
