    This is the best yet of all mineral foundations. I use a shea butter moisturizer and it is the perfect base for this. Other mineral makeups clumped in the crease of my skin ( I am nearly 60) and this one leaves me with a smoother, younger look. People think I'm 30! (a blessing and a curse). I use the Loreal loose blush over this foundation and give a very natural look. The foundation can be built up with additional applications, but I find a single application fine. I always use a makeup brush.
    Also, it can be used over a liquid foundation as a powder.
    The titanium oxide seems to help small blemishes heal and disappear quickly. Does not cake or dry my skin out as others have.

    I was excited to try this product. It got great reviews, plus my sister uses it and loves it. On the positive side- the color was a great match for my fair complexion and the compact was easy to use. However, it didn't last long on my skin (which tends to get oily in the t-zone). I found that after a few hours I needed to reapply it in some areas. The coverage wasn't that great either. I was hoping that it would hide my imperfections so that I didn't have to use so much concealer, but it was too light to cover them. I tried "building" the coverage like the directions stated, but it made my skin look too powdery. Oh well, I guess I'll keep using my Coty Airspun powder until I find a compact that works.

    Comments about Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation, Classic Ivory 10, 1 ea:

    Nice light, clean-feeling coverage (light-medium) that needs application and touch-up with good make-up brush. Invest in one. Caution: Sponge included is not soft enough for skin under eyes, and will give skin heavier, possibly uneven coverage. Prefer to use cotton velour powder puff that will fit in the compact (under powder) when med coverage is needed, or dabbing under eyes. Good value/quality compared to department store brands.

    Made my skin break out

      Comments about Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation, Classic Ivory 10, 1 ea:

      Since the Origins product I normally use has such limited shades (medium beige is too pale, the next shade up is way too dark), I tried this Neutrogena powder, since the price was right and I normally like their skin products.

      I have oily skin with large pores. After only a few days of using this, my skin started breaking out in places like the middle of my cheek, so I know it's not hormonal, since those breakouts are usually on my chin. I am religious about cleansing my face before bed.

      I also don't like the amount of coverage. This actually makes my pores appear larger. The honey beige is more orange than beige and goes on splotchy. Foundation should even out my skin tone not make it look worse. This is going in the trash after less than a week.

        I was looking for a more affordable replacement when I ran out of my Clinique Superpowder Double Face Makeup and this is definitely comparable! And it's almost half price too.
        I have combination skin. It doesn't stay on all day, but that also has to do with the moisturizer that you wear. If your moisturizer is oil based and you foundation or vice versa, they will not mix will and that can cause your makeup to melt right off your face a lot faster. Over all, I like the medium coverage I get to even out my skin tone. The mirror makes it very convenient.

          I love that this product has very little spf and no fragrance.I'm allergic to spf and fragrance. this product is the only one I can use. I'm 61 years old and have very sensitive skin. Since I has been using this powder my skin has not broken out. keep making this wonderful powder!!My skin looks better then when I was younger.

            I really like this foundation -- covers the imperfections without looking heavy and powdery. I put a little extra on some blotchiness around my nose and I don't need to re-apply until very late in the day, if at all.

            It's very reasonably priced compared to other mineral foundations.

                After running out of the "leading mineral brand" sold on infomercials and also tired of the mess I decided to give this a try. I've definitely been missing alot. Smooth application, matte look which I love, stays on and you dont even know its there! I use foundation to even out my skin tone and cover a few problem spots and this is perfect. Easy to apply with the sponge and can be a buildable coverage. During winter use a light moisturizer underneath and its the perfect makeup. I love it and Im never going back to the other brand. VERY affordable too!

                      This is great for combination skin, especially over a creamy moisturizer because it has a matte finish that lasts all day. With liquid makeup my nose gets shiny within 2 hours -- not with this. Comes with a sponge in a cute mirrored section of the compact, but I use a kabuki brush to apply - very easy and quick. Not a ton of coverage, but plenty for daytime.
