Most Helpful Positive Review Very lightweight product
This is the first product that I've purchased from this brand. I went into the store looking for a similar product from a different brand (to whom I'm a loyal customer). The brand I was looking for is only carried online so this product was suggested to me. I have dry and sensitive skin. This product does not leave my skin looking dull and dry. It is very lightweight, which I love. It is also very buildable without appearing heavy. The pigment matches perfectly to my skin tone. It's the perfect combination of the coverage that you get with a liquid foundation and sets like a powder foundation. Also, it's about $15 less than the product I usually buy. I'm sold on Cover FX.
Most Helpful Critical Review Terrible
I had high hopes for this because of the great reviews. This powder is practically invisible on the skin. I don't have much to cover besides some redness and one or two breakouts and it didn't even come close to covering that. For as much money as this product is, it should do what it claims. I'm returning it and will be trying something different.

Such an effortlessly beautiful powder. I have normal to dry skin and it doesn't look dry or dry me out. Easy for on the go, touch ups, or to top liquid. Love it paired with their primer and a little concealer. Lovely finish and held up well. Would highly recommend this!
Love it more than I thought I would
Makeupgeek from Chicago, IL
Perfect shade match and really good coverage. It is so buildable too. It will not look dry and patch if you spray some facial spray (not setting spray). That is the trick I've been using with powder foundation. It will keep your face so dewy and natural.
Non-irritating buildable foundation coverup.
Happy Cat from Lower Westchester, NYS
Covers up redness if primer & concealer is applied first. Looks "dryer" than I would like due to my dry skin, but fixable with a little "bling" highlighter. Buildable on age spots and hides imperfections really well. Keeps me looking 20-30 years younger due to genetic genes with perfect looking skin. This is a reliable mineral foundation powder that gives me quick & easy results each time for years. This is more comforting to apply than any liquid foundation. I have super sensitive skin and have no issues with this brand.
Favorite foundation by far!
Kari from Madison, WI
This is my all time favorite foundation. I have pretty good skin, but it's oily so liquid foundations look weird on me. This one gives a nice, full coverage without looking cakey or dry. I always get compliments on how good my skin is because no one can tell I'm wearing it!
A staple in my makeup drawer!
DOELLE from FL
I love having a lightweight but build-able powder foundation in my make-up kit. I live in Florida and it's difficult to keep foundation fresh in the heat and humidity. I find this combats any oiliness and doesn't appear too heavy as it wears throughout the day.
alex c from st. louis
liquid foundation always gave me an oily look so i was recommended this product. i love it! seems a bit pricey but i only have to buy it ever year to two years. it gives enough coverage but also natural look :)
I don't get it...
Claire from IL
The only pro is that the color is an exact match. But I do not find that this mattifies my skin at all. In fact, I think it makes my T-zone "glowy" looking almost immediately after application. It also manages to highlight every pore I have despite not having a large pore problem. I really wanted to like this as there are so many great reviews. But after trying multiple application routes I still am left with the same issue - SHINE. Unbelievable shine.
Bea and Guipi from Pembroke Pines, FL
This product is awesome! It is very versatile because you can use it dry or you can wet your sponge and use it wet. The coverage is surprising! It covers very well. You don't need to use liquid foundation under it.
Great coverage for a powder!
Zenzin from Earth
This is my current HG powder foundation. It has excellent coverage for a powder, doesn't get cakey from sweat or reapplication, and doesn't feel heavy. I use this over CoverFX concealer (I love this concealer and urban decay's) for "better coverage." I don't like heavier foundations and I think this is one is the best coverage powders I've tried (vs Clinique and L'Oréal). My skin had no reactions from it and there's no annoying scent or sparkles. The compact comes with a sponge applicator which has held up through multiple washings until the powder was used up. I'm surprised this powder does not have more reviews. I absolutely love it!!
Its a keeper
Dee9864 from Dallas County, Texas
Use this daily. Not heavy, goes on well and is long wearing. I use a make-up setting spray as I live in Texas and get so many compliments on how great my make-up looks.
Oily girl'a dream powder foundation
Natty from Richmond, Va
I can't begin to tell you how 5 star this product is.
It literally meets EVERY claim is has listed. I have TRULY oily skin and this IS my holy grail powder foundation.
It blurs pores, it gives medium buildable coverage, it STAYS SHINE FREE (that alone is unbelievable), and the shade range is to die for! It ACTUALLY HAS PINK UNDERTONE SHADES THAT MATCH YOUR SKINTONE.
It's amazing. I can't gush enough. Please never stop making this product.
MAC Studio FIX powder foundation is a 2nd best runner up out of the many i've tried, but you'll be oily soon enough and I almost feel like it oxidizes and makes me darker throughout the day with my oils mixed in.
Stick to this and you'll be a happy happy camper. Please don't stop making this product!
I wanted to like it
Red from Bartlesville, OK
It seemed decent when starting out, but would cake in different areas and my face looked oily by the end of the day. I heard this line was "clean makeup" but after researching the ingredients more it has several pore clogging ingredients if you have problem skin. Sending back!
Minimal coverage and Not for Dry Ski
Deb from Pennsylvania
I felt like there was no coverage. Might be ok for setting foundation, but pricey for that. I have combination skin and where my skin is dry it made my skin flake-I look better without this minimal coverage powder! Might be best for oily skin, because it is super matting. Not for me.
Liz from Riverside, CA
First time trying this, I would use my dior liquid foundation and apply this all over my face. After wearing it for about 8+ hours my face was oily. I want to like it, but it would be shiny.
Please Bring Back Perfect Pressed Powder!
nrgrabow from Boston, MA
The perfect pressed powder provides awesome coverage - this foundation does not come even close. It seems like the perfect pressed powder is being cut out of the product line, as is the treatment concealer stick. I am beyond disappointed!! No other product can compare for coverage, value, and ingredients. Please bring back the perfect pressed powder and treatment concealer stick!
On the Go makeup
MomJeans from Boise, Idaho
This compact is perfect for a rushed morning when I don't have time to use my liquid CC cream and buff it out with a sponge, set it, etc. I can get my face covered and put on mascara and be out the door in less than 5 minutes. If I want a super full coverage look and I sometimes put this on top of my IT Cosmetics CC cream. It works best when I moisturize and prime before because it can get *a little bit cakey if I have dry patches on my cheeks (but not bad, that's why I still give it 5 stars). All in all, it's a great quick way to get ready when you're pressed for time.
Nice matte powder
Tonias84 from Sacramento
I love this powder for oil skin. It holds up under heat and long wear like a champ. It's matte very matte not for dry skin at all. Great color range also.
I would recommend this product
Shonda from Longview, TX
Loves this product. It covers very good.
Roosaliiaa from Hejeb
Use this to set my liquid foundation and it works like magic! It keeps my skin from looking oily and leaves skin looking smooth and matte
SandyinSimi from Simi Valley CA
Use this lightly over CoverFx creamy foundation or wear alone.
Holy Grail Foundation
G0CT9 from CT
I have extremely sensitive skin combination that is prone to breakouts and rosacea. I have tried a million different foundations, cc creams, bb creams, and mineral foundations. This is the only foundation that I have ever used that doesn't itch, burn, or cause breakouts. I am so impressed with how well this powder covers up all of the redness and imperfections. I have to use a setting spray (also Cover FX) to get it to last all day, otherwise I get oily after 4 hours, and need to blot my face. I love this foundation so much, that I bought one for my teenage daughter to use. I highly recommend this foundation. It's not cakey or filled with ingredients that will cause skin problems.
Vinavictoria from Bronx ny
I use it everyday blends perfect with my skin tone
Made my skin flawless
Rachel from North Carolina
This has been my favorite pressed powder by far. When I tell people I have rosacea when I wear this they don't believe me! I'm super bummed they stopped carrying it in the stores in my area!!!!
Kris from RI
I have used bare minerals powder for over a decade. I was never fully satisfied, but I kept going back because I couldn't find something I preferred more UNTIL NOW. This makeup is clean which I love and looks better than the bare minerals makeup. My fiancé tells me it surpasses my last brand by far. He noticed it all in his own the first day I used it. A must buy! Stays put all day!
Nice coverage! Could be better!
Zaneta from Georgia
I like the finish and feel of this foundation. I do wished it had a bit more coverage.
