Fast, easy and flawless
I have been using this foundation for about 5 years now, and it's one of the very few that does not break me out. My skin seems to do best with powder foundations, as the liquids always seep into my pores and break me out. This foundation looks beautiful on my skin, and the ONLY reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it does not control my oil at all, and if you have any flakiness, it will accentuate it so exfoliate well in the am :)

I have used Jane Iredale pure pressed powder for the past two years since suffering with acne. I used it to cover up, during my roaccutane treatment and now acne free - It is a product that I know won't aggravate my skin. I get compliments on how pure my skin looks and I am convinced its the great coverage that this powder gives!I do not use foundtation or concealers, just this! I've tried bare minerals before, thought it was rubbish in comparison! Love!

Medium Coverage
Lasts all day
Tons of Product (Half way through the pan and I have had it for over a year and use it daily)
Skin looks and feels like skin, not foundation.


Does not control oil

I always try new foundations but I always come back to this. My only issue is that it does not control oil, and my even make me a bit oilier.

-Non Greasy
-Did not irritate my skin
-Felt Light


-Sheer coverage unless used with Green Tea concealer
-Bumps are more noticeable than they are under a liquid foundation

I apply this foundation with a brush after applying the jane iredale green tea concealer. Completely conceals the redness but i'm not crazy about the powdery finish... I was previously using the Estee Lauder double wear, which, i will admit, offered better coverage as this foundation tends to magnify bumps due to its temporary powdery finish. After blush, bronzer and great eye makeup jane iredale creates a healthy look that feels much better on the skin than say a heavy liquid like EL double wear. Note: The powdery finish really is temporary..once the makeup sets/your skin becomes oilier it looks great.
