      Comments about ULTA Mineral Powder Foundation:

      I take off the clear plastic shaker under the lid and dip in a contracted kabuki brush, and it does a good job of evening skin tone and lightening (but not concealing totally) scars and blemishes. No other foundation consistently works better for me, and (importantly) this stuff does not cause me to break out at all. It is also a great value; one jar lasts about 2 months for me.

        Only complaint is the sifter- it doesn't dispense enough powder. Other than that, great product.

              I have always used BareMinerals foundation, then out of the blue I decided to try Ulta's mineral foundation. I hate to say it but I'm done with BareMinerals. Ulta is half the price and goes on and stays on better. I found the perfect shade for my skin tone. Highly recommend!

                      Five Stars! I purchased this because of the unbeatable price, hoping it would at least work as a powder over my liquid foundation. I am in my mid-thirties, with problematic skin. My skin tends to be oily and I break out in places that I always need to cover...ugh. Anyway, what a surprise when one day I decided to try this powder foundation ALONE with just moisturizer and a clear primer on my face...WOW! It alone covered my problem areas, and blended well into my fair skin (I purchased the FAIR 01). Not too yellow or pink, and I didn't need to use any of my other gloppy foundations with it. Freedom!
                      The only issue I've had with this foundation is the packaging. The powder dispenser on top of the container make the product almost impossible to use. I had tried it, and even tried to make the size of the holes bigger, and at first threw this powder to the back of my not-so-great cosmetics graveyard, figuring that if I can't even get enough product out, what's the point? After my husband kindly helped me take the plastic dispensing lid off (it wasn't easy!), I had access to all the powder at once, and could dip my application brush in, tap the extra off into the lid, and apply.
                      So, without hesitation, I recommend this foundation! Just be patient and realize you may have to remove that pesky dispenser to use it.

                      • 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.
