    Went out to get an emergency mineral based foundation and they ran out of this shade, so I got the Maybelline version instead. Wrong idea, but I was desperate. I was really scared on using this, since I used the Maybelline brand first and that was so horrible! It made me look like I applied an extremely thick coat of make up on as well as my whole face was completely in some sort of weird pale shade that was as well uneven. Doesn't make any sense. I'm more a natural look girl. So having my face look like you can scrape off the make up with a butter knife, is not my thing. Anyways, after just starting to use it yesterday, I was totally impressed and blown away. I really didn't expect it to be so natural looking, very light yet covers up nice. It feels like I got nothing at all and looks the same way. I'm totally hooked. I would agree with alli regarding the brush. You just gotta be VERY careful. Oh and it's GREAT that it's got SPF 19, it's a bit higher than the other foundation/powder with SPF.

    I switched to this product after running out of my Jane Iredale mineral foundation, and things weren't so bad at first. The coverage is great, it lasts nicely, and it was much less pricey! However, after using this product for a month or two, my skin has become *out of control*. The formula is incredibly pore-clogging for me, and I now have cystic acne, blackheads and milia which not even Pro-Active is addressing! I'm not sure how long it will take my skin to recover, as I've stopping using this formula several weeks ago and am still getting my skin back to 'normal'. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone -- ever -- but, if you do decide to try this formula, I'd recommend purchasing a separate brush for application, as the one included is not very soft.

      Comments about L'Oreal Paris True Match Gentle Mineral Makeup, SPF 19, Light Ivory 458, .35 oz:

      Tried many powders over the years. This is my favorite. It covers well but you don't look like you have make-up on - it looks very naturally. I have extremely fair skin, and the other light tones don't work as well for me, only the light ivory.

      Make sure you clean your brush very often - ideally it should be cleaned after every use which I don't remember to do. But I do it after every two, three uses. That way you don't break out!

        I'm a makeup artist that has been using Bare Escentuals for over 14 years and wanted to compare this product. I have very fair, sensitive, acne prone skin that tends to be both oily and dry. This product went on easily, smoothly and didn't irritate my sensitive skin. Compared to Bare Escentuals, this product is a larger size, has better SPF coverage, and is over $10 cheaper and easier to buy. Definitely give this a shot, you'll be glad you did!

              I purchased this hoping for convenience when traveling (which I do a lot for business). The powder did disperse thru the application brush at all (yes, I removed all of the packaging). When i opened the powder chamber, much of the product spilled out). I threw this out at the hotel and did not even bother to return it... that would have wasted even more of my time. I do not recommend this at all.

                This powder foundation is great for a variety of uses. It works well on summer days, when you don't want a heavy foundation, great for days when you want a more natural, lighter look and for setting make up after applying.

                Just open the bottom to shake the powder through the holes in the second bottom of the container. Then uncap the brush then use the brush to use a small amount of the foundation. You can also build up layers to get the effect you want on your skin.

                I have also found it works really well for an eye shadow foundation. I use a smaller blusher brush, rather than the brush that comes with the item. Then I apply it to my clean dry eyelids then apply my eye shadow. It sets both cream and powder eye shadows and lasts a long time.

                I have not noticed any breakouts with my combination skin and the fair/ivory matches my skin perfectly.

                    I read so many good reviews and I took my chances on this mineral foundation. First of all, the packaging is so bad, and the container size is soo small. Be ready to loose product with the way that the brush is attached to the container. Most of it ends up in the bottom of the lid attached to the brush. L'oreal needs to conduct a focus group on this packaging and fix the situation.

                    Color choices are very poor. I have fair skin and tried the three lightest shades and could not find a match. Shades were either too chalky or too orange. I ended up buying a more expensive mineral foundation from my favorite foundation company that is now going out of business...
