Most Helpful Positive Review Like it!
I prefer powder foundations, as I don't like the feel of liquid and for ease of use. I have applied the Bio Based Bake Foundation with both a brush and spounge, and found the spounge to have better coverage. Both of these application were for dry coverage. This is the best dry foundation I have tried in regards to it not caking on my dry skin pataches. It has decent coverage (still not what you would have with a liquid foundation), it is comparable to other dry foundations I have used. I would overall recommend this product. I received this product in exchange for an honest review.
Most Helpful Critical Review Should not qualify as a foundation.
I was so excited for this foundation! But I was so disappointed. I simply don't understand how this could qualify as a foundation. I have some uneven texture and adult acne. I don't necessarily need full coverage (I can use concealer where needed) but I couldn't get ANY coverage out of this. I tried three different types of foundation brushes (including the kabuki brush) and I couldnt get more than a light dusting (almost like a finishing powder). I thought maybe I wasn't getting enough on the brush, but I could see it on the brush and the cake is significantly worn down after only a few attempts. The only reason I gave it two stars is it isn't drying at all. Your skin feels nice and even more moisturizer after wearing it. If you have great skin, it may be worth it. The ingredients are lovely! If you need ANY coverage however, you will be disappointed. And, you'll go through it VERY quickly if you're trying to build coverage.

I ordered 2W - Warm light - and it was almost white, so light and clearly defective. It did absolutely nothing other than make me have a Casper look. It is so sheer I can't imagine it doing anything even if it was the correct color. I contacted Well People, I thought they should know how bad the product was, and they didn't care.

I would not purchase this product for myself, also small detail i just noticed while trying to publish a review is that the shade number is nowhere to be found on the container, so wouldn't know which one to reorder, as for the product it is very dry and hard to apply, didn't really last me even a couple hours when applied
NOT the same product as I bought in March 2021.
Molly from Pennsylvania
I recently reordered, I did not notice the name change until now going back, the packaging and actual foundation are no longer the same. The original was matte and didn't crease terribly. This new one has a shimmer, so much that it looks like you put highlighter all over your face. It creases under the eyes and builds up in weird places like the dimple of my chin. I would not recommend. Going back to my more expensive brand. I know they were bought by elf. Is that why everything is different?? I hope my acne doesn't breakout using it, seeing the ingredients have obviously changed. Not happy.
I really love this stuff
Barb from Ann Arbor
It goes on so very smooth and has buildable coverage. This has replaced my previous powder foundation and am such a fan.
Such a disappointment!
KT from Dallas, TX
I was so disappointed with this product. Even using a wet makeup sponge did not give any coverage. Using with the suggested brush was absolutely useless. Wish this had worked as it was expensive!
♥️ from Los Angeles
I think this bronzer is beautiful on the skin, a warm nice toner for the face, and definitely pigmented. It's one of my favorites of this brand!
Kris from Chicago, IL
This color is almost the same as my NARS bronzer. This goes on light and covers beautifully. I really like the size of this compact.
Mari from New York
This bronzer is just amazing!!! I love the natural looks and makeup and with this powder, I definitely get a natural look.
Great natural glow
mich from Syracuse, NY
This is the perfect shade and buildable if need. Gave me a nice natural sun kissed glow and felt very soft and smooth on my skin. It does have some sparkles in it but for me it was just the right amount. It's not like overly glittery like some powders I've tried. Looks beautiful and natural. I received this product complimentary for testing purposes.

This is my favorite translucent power. I love the natural effects on my skin
Great coverage and lovely finish
Sea Rae from Prescott, Arizona
I use this over my Narcissist Foundation Stick to help set it. I got a shade darker than I am, (4 Medium Neutral) since I plan on getting lots of sun the next few months and I tan easily. It has a perfect natural finish that isn't unnaturally matte or oily, and it looks great in natural lighting! I am hypersensitive to chemicals and artificial fragrance and none of the Well People Products have given me any problems or allergic reactions like different brands have. So thankful to have found clean, safe make up that works and doesn't cost a fortune! #sweepstakes
I love this baked foundation!
O from No thanks
This foundation is amazing. It's non-toxic and it matches my skin tone perfectly. I'm so happy with it! Highly recommend!
Cindy from Undisclosed
I use just a little of this over the bio tint moisturizer and it's perfect !
I like it but shade range is trash
Tamara from New Jersey
W3ll people... we need to talk about the shade range. People with darker skin tones like makeup too yet the shade range completely excludes anyone beyond tan. Thankfully the darkest shade works for me so I enjoy the product but it's hard to get behind a brand that doesn't give darker skintones a thought.
Jennifer from Undisclosed
I love this baked foundation! It looks and feels lovely, it contains natural ingredients, and is a reasonable price. What more could a girl want in her makeup?!
Jennifer from Undisclosed
LOVE that this is a baked version of a foundation which doesn't leave my skin oily like every other foundation has done.
Deborah from Undisclosed
Works well for coverage.
Didn't work for me
Kt22 from US
I was really hoping this product would work for me but it didn't. I found the baked foundation to be much more drying than other pressed powders I've previously used. Felt like it didn't go on well and had horrible coverage. Will not be buying again.
Can be pretty but takes work
Kalee from FL
Takes forever to build up. Not for anyone who wants medium to full coverage. Light to medium at best.
Best powder foundation EVER!
Erin from Undisclosed
This is GREAT!!! It's what I've been looking for! Coverage, yet you can't tell it's there...& it isn't caked on!
Lexi from Pittsburgh
Honestly if you're looking for a foundation to take a chance on.. this is definitely it. I'm not sure why I even chose to buy this but I love it!! I use it over concealer and it evens out my skin tone perfectly. Also does not make me look too orangey or cakey.
Jessica from Undisclosed
I originally fell in love with the loose powder, but this is great too. Still beats other products out there, and this one seems to last longer too. #sweepstakes
My new go-to!
Erica from Undisclosed
The search is over! I've finally found a makeup brand that my skin LOVES!!! I use this as powder foundation and keep it in my purse, so it's always with me.
Kate from Undisclosed
The color is spot on to my skin tone; it does not come off on my clothes, yet cleans off easily at the end of the day. It's so light, that it doesn't bother me--other foundations I can "feel".
My favorite light weight foundation!
Fisherchick from Northwest Arkansas
Use this for my daily coverage and my skin likes it so much that I no longer have a need for heavier foundation.
