Fan for years

I've used this foundation for many years. I love it and will never use another powder. I use it alone or over a liquid foundation for heavier coverage. I do agree with other reviewers. I miss my old color, Second Skin, it was the best match for me.

I think its a very good loose foundation.

I do think it does work better in combo with other products, such as the tint du soleil or one of the primers, I just don't think it covers enough for me if it's used all on its own.

I have been using the Loose Mineral Foundation for several years and absolutely love it. The color, Not Too Deep, suited my skin tone well. Now that the color pallet has changed, I cannot find an acceptable match and I'm so so so very disappointed. They're too yellow. It has forced me to switch to another brand. Bring back the originals please!
Colorescience response: We appreciate your feedback as we are always evaluating new shades. Thank you.

Brush applicator doesn't work well

I think I would have liked this a lot better if the brush applicator was better. The bristles are too long and too tight so you don't get even coverage. Unless I'm doing something totally wrong, but I don't see how that's possible. I'd love this a lot more if...

I think I would have liked this a lot better if the brush applicator was better. The bristles are too long and too tight so you don't get even coverage. Unless I'm doing something totally wrong, but I don't see how that's possible. I'd love this a lot more if it came in a loose powder and jar form. Or at least where the powder didn't come from the base of the brush.

Love the look and feel!

It's easy to apply and doesn't break me out or feel heavy on my face.

I purchased this from my skin care professional and love it. I am sensitive to most products with SPF, but this product does not cause any irritation. It provides a silky, smooth coverage with the built-in brush. I have a drawer full of foundations and powders and just could not find the right one. This one does not settle in the lines and wrinkles nor does it look cakey. You can build coverage as light or heavy as you need. My skin looks smooth and natural. It is the perfect mineral foundation at my age of 55.

Love it!

I love love love this make-up! It is lightweight and natural looking, yet provides good coverage. I have very sensitive skin, and it is one of the few foundations that has never irritated my skin or caused a break-out.

Not my favorite...

I ordered this product in same shade as I typically order in the mineral compact powder, but for some reason it is an entire shade darker. I also don't like the application with the retractable brush. I usually pour the powder into a powder container and use the kabuki brush...

I ordered this product in same shade as I typically order in the mineral compact powder, but for some reason it is an entire shade darker. I also don't like the application with the retractable brush. I usually pour the powder into a powder container and use the kabuki brush to apply this powder and achieve a much smoother/even appearance. Still a terrific powder!

Love!

I love Colorescience, I have tried many mineral makeups and always come back to Colorescience - easy to apply, love the natural feel, confident I have sunscreen protection as well.

Not enough coverage

I purchased this product with the hope of evening out my skin tone. Unfortunately, this Loose Mineral Foundation (California Girl) provides no noticeable difference. Living in California, I assumed California Girl would be a medium shade, but it is very pale. Disappointing considering how much I paid for the product.

Disappointing product for me. It is extremely light (I ordered medium) and there is little or no coverage. Even with careful application there is a lot of waste, as it seems there is more powder that falls onto my counter top than my face.

Love Colorscience makeup as it feels light and looks natural. I use the loose mineral foundation but absolutely HATE the brush applicator as it gets dirty really fast. Cleaning the brush is not an easy task because you have to empty the makeup from the tube and then put it back in once the brush dries, which takes a really long time. Once I had my first experience cleaning the brush I switched to only buying the refills and dumping the makeup in an empty loose powder container I had on hand. Unfortunately, Colorscience has stopped selling the refills because of efficacy issue with the brush being used for way to long and not being replaced/cleaned properly. It is very frustrating that Colorscience is willing to make customers pay more money rather than fix the real issue with the brush applicator. PLEASE bring back the refills or start selling the loose foundation WITHOUT the brush applicator!

CS: Thank you for using our products. When cleaning your brush we recommend moistening a clean towel with your colorescience brush cleaner and sweeping with brush bristles facing up. this will help remove any excess makeup and buildup. Please do not spray directly on the brush as it may damage the performance of the component. Another great option is using our pressed foundation with our kabuki brush for a lightweight natural look and feel.

This product lasts so long

So worth the price, to have good coverage and clear skin ! Plus the refills are a great price.

World's best foundation powder!

After years of trying dozens of foundations & not liking the results, I was hooked the first time I tried Colorescience second skin! It lasts a long time & I've been satisfied with this product for 9 years running! I hope they make this product forever!

I love all of the Colorscience products. I have mild to moderate rosacea. Colorescience has helped reduce the "look of" redness with their calming products. During flare ups,the mineral makeup neutralizes the redness. Best coverup I have ever had. And believe me I've tried many!

Feels great!

I had to buy this in place of the pressed powder since All Dolled Up was out of stock. It's great for light coverage, but not as easy to use to cover acne spots. I look forward to getting the pressed version. I will say this product feels amazing though....
