Extra Virgin Minerals™ Powder Foundation
I have oily/acne prone skin and have tried just about every powder and mineral foundation out there. I must say I am pleasantly surprised with this one. I do find the shades to run dark. I have a light-medium skin tone and use Natural Vanilla 202. This shade is a true neutral color. It has a semi-matte satin finish and the coverage is light but can be built up to a medium coverage, not full. I wear a primer underneath and it helps keep this foundation to last and looking fresh. I will definitely re-purchase. The price is great for the quality plus the neutral and golden shades have the perfect amount of yellow and/or warmth to even out my redness and match my skin perfectly.

Won't wear anythilng else!
Even though it doesn't last very long, this is my favorite foundation! It covers great and is cruelty free! :)

This foundation goes on easily and well, stays all day. My only concern is I will probably need a little darker shade in the summer but the product itself is terrific.

loving this product
After using this product for a full year I can safely say I am in love with it. It gives a very light coverage that you can build on till a certain degree (before you start looking cakey) by adding more layers of foundation. For combination skins, does require the user to touch up halfway through the day.
However I found TBS matte it skin primer which has taken care of that problem. I can go a whole day without any problem with retouching.
Also with the primer, the coverage of the product increases as well. I put on foundation in one layer on my whole face. I go back for another layer around my nose, eyes and might do a third layer around my dark circles. It works like a charm. It drastically changes my appearance.
I should mention though I have Indian skin that has only dis-colouring issues. Texture wise it is fairly smooth.
As for value, I used the product once every day for 11 months before it ran out. That is great value for money for me.
