            Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

            I bought this to use when it starts getting warmer out but it's too orange for me. I'm pretty fair and have golden undertones but this foundation was just extremely orange. It also caked up around my eyebrows and I had to use a lot to achieve any coverage. If you have clear skin and can find a color match I'd say go for it, but it didn't work for me.

            Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

            So seeing the high reviews on this product is confusing. All I can figure is that ppl with oily skin probably have better luck than ppl like me with dry sensitive skin. I've used powders before that didn't blend well from lack of oil, but expected more with my routine. First I do the ten step Korean skin care routine so no dry patches, just make up ready skin. I've used this with or without primer and the Ulta dewy setting spray which made it much worse,my picture shows me just after driving to work, do you see how it just melted off my nose from just driving to work?! I've tried it several times as it seems to give nice coverage but as soon I go outside and look in a mirror else where, all I can see is cakeyness, settlement into my pores, and all blemish/texture shown. I luckily got this half off and only recommend waiting or using Ulta points to buy this if you really wanna try it. Like I said it does no blend, and pores show up worse, but if your oily with small pores maybe...It dd not break me out so one pro! I've put it away so I don't accidentally use it again.

            I thought it was good.....

            Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

            I wanted to give this a fair chance. I have combo skin that is acne prone. I've had my acne under control for over 4 years now, so I know if a product is breaking me out. This stuff broke me out like crazy. At first I thought it was the weather change so I kept trying this because I really wanted to like it, nope it's this product. I broke out in small white heads in places I don't normally get my usual stress/hormonal acne. Not only did it break me out but the lasting power on this is three hours at best. I tried it alone, with a matte primer, a hydrating primer, setting spray, over a liquid foundation. Same result. It wore off that quick and every night I would get more white heads. At least I gave it a shot but I would stay away from this if you are looking for something medium to full coverage, this just doesn't have staying power or the coverage.

              I love this powder. It's light enough to wear daily and still provides good coverage. I have oily skin and it still looks great at the end of the day.

              Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

              Probably the least favorite powder of any kind I've tried. I've gotten several other kinds for this price with much better quality. It does not stay matte and doesn't go on even. It is extremely patchy and cakey and my oil shines through in just a couple minutes after application

              • Q:

                Once this foundation is applied does it make the pores around the nose or anywhere on the face look more noticeable like bare minerals does or is it good at hiding those imperfections and making the skin look more natural and not glittery looking.
