Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Khipper Good Powder, Not My Skin Tone
As I suffer from incredibly oily skin, I'm always looking for a powder that both has good coverage, doesn't make me break out, and keeps my skin from looking slicked with grease. I got this powder as a Christmas present with my mother's fervent wishes that I would finally find a product that worked for me. And it did! It actually works pretty alright! The only downside? The palest shade available is still too dark for my Irish white skin tone :( perhaps it'll suit me better when summer comes around, but right now it's a good 2 shades towards the tan side for me. Still, I recommend this powder to people with oily skin :)

I'm really impressed with this product, although not for my skin type. It gives a lovely finish and coverage, and is extremely quick and easy to apply with the flat brush that reaches narrow places like temples, under eyes, and the nose. I think I'm a little too oily for this particular formula. Within a few hours, my t-zone is gleaming with oil, so great product for normal/dry complexions. If you can give us a loose-powder formula that is oil free, I'll be all over it.

I'm older, with problem skin. This is the best powder foundation I have ever tried. It leaves your skin feeling soft, good coverage for red areas and scars, and has just a little luminosity that makes you look fresh and glowing.

Love Mineral Sheers! Looks natural and gives you nice soft coverage. It is easy to dispense. Just tap the side of the container by the little holes and then apply with a big powder brush.

I've gone through two of this powder.
I don't recommend this for those who have really oily skin like mine- I mean 5 hours into my morning and my face is already shiny- that kind of oily.
- the pearl- like dust that is incorporated, is either the SPF, or just added shimmer, gives a healthy glow when first applied, but is an enemy glow for those with oily skin like mine.
The sifter can get messy, the brush is useless... It just adds to the price of the whole product. I wouldn't say this is travel-friendly.
Neutrogena, feel free to leave out the silly fan brush and set the price at 10 even.
I've been using nude 40 and my oily skin turns it into an unattractive orange tone within a couple of hours;keep in mind I don't use primer- just gel moisturizer.

I was using liquid foundations and started to notice that it was leaving noticeable creases in my skin as I started to age and it made me look older than I was. I also had a facial breakout problem with the liquid foundations. I tried this product and absolutely fell in love with it. No more facial breakouts and no more prominent creases in my face. It's so easy to use and no mess to clean.The color matches my complextion for a more even and natural look.

I was using liquid/cream foundations on my combination-oily skin and realized they were causing major breakouts. I decided to head towards natural powder foundations, and I found this Neutrogena product. The coverage is light to buildable, and it gives your face a fresh, natural look. A great product for the price, plus I love the brush!
