Quick and easy to use,
No need to re-apply amounts despite other reviews,
Long lasting product despite the size of the contents,
Not using fingers to apply which is good to avoid touching our face all the time,
Gives good coverage,
Healthy look and a slight glow throughout the day,
Doesn't block pores,
Contains SPF 15,
Non streaky
Doesn't have the glittery effect


Can spill but then again, that is what happens when using loose powder,
Made a lot of wrong colour choice purchases before deciding which shade looked best. Too many shades to choose from led to wasting money.

I'm surprised to see this hasn't had any top ratings so far as I think this is a really great product. For a drugstore bare minerals type product at a reasonable price, this has been the beauty secret that women are switching over to for a quick coverage-touch up before they head to their busy lives. I don't just necessarily mean with just L'Oreal bare minerals, but all the other mineral powders out there. I apply Olay Complete Care Moisturiser with SPF 15 as a base, then dab the brush into the powder, tap excess back into the pot and work around in circular motions on my face. Add a touch of concealer, blusher and maybe lipstick, and then 'Hey, presto! Looking good to head out'. I feel it also helps accentuates my nose, making it appear narrower as when applied on, the sheen after a few hours reflects nicely with the light. I have also been using it on my legs, to hide any skin discolouration which works just as nicely but seems to look more natural later during the day as it softens with my skin. As I have been using the same brush (the one on top) on my legs, I've made sure to buy a separate Kabuki brush for my face. So I'm not mixing around with whatever moisturiser I've been using on my legs with the same brush.

+ purchased foundation in a pack with bonus blush and perfecting powder.
+ actually helped to minimize my blemishes and dark spots
+ gave me just the right amount of coverage


- I hated the brush and container.
- easily spills
- accentuated my dry skin
- wiped off easily (when oil blotting)

I loved this foundation and the shade I had. I have since switched foundations because I ran out and buying it as a stand-alone foundation was upwards of $35. I think the coverage was fantastic to hide my blackheads, acne marks and my underground pimples. Because of my oily skin, it did come off when blotting, but I would just use a primer beforehand. Definitely recommend.

Fairly good coverage
Not shiny
Reasonably priced; often 2 for 1
Does not seem to promote acne
Holds back oil well


Brush is horrible
Container is poorly designed
Tricky to apply to best advantage
Can be messy if not carefully handled

First, ditch the container & brush. I transfer it to an empty Bare Escentuals jar. I mix two different colors to get the tone I like. Use a very small amount of aloe vera gel as a primer and be sure it is dry before applying the powder with a firm/fine-pore sponge. Apply sparingly to the face (but use liquid foundation around the eyes as powders accents fine lines). Then use a tiny brush to apply extra product to blemishes or dark spots. Note: If your skin is flaky, the dead skin will be accented by this product unless you exfoliate before applying. I like a 2% BHA liquid for this purpose (Paula's Choice).

-> lightweight
-> decent coverage
-> natural feel/look
-> buildable coverage
-> didn't break me out


-> not a lot for the price

i really, really like this powder. the only thing that disappoints me is that for the price, you barely get any powder! it looked wonderful on my skin. i used it to cover some hyperpigmentation and it worked pretty well. i prefer covergirl simply powder, though.
