    Great except for color selection

    My ULTA coupon didn’t apply to any of the fancy-schmancy brand name pressed powder, so I went cheap and grabbed Ulta’s own. I was dubious as I had a rather negative experience with an Ulta-brand concealer once, but the label says “Mineral”, which is all the rage in makeup right now. Another major concern was the limited color choices: they only offer “Light to Mediu...read morem” and “Fair to Light”. I finally chose Light to Medium since I don’t like the geisha look, and my skin has warm yellow undertones. (Yes, you should know these things about your skin.) The package was attractive and opened easily, but when I first used it, the powder settled kind of cakey and seemed still too light. (I don’t even tan, people. Seriously.) By the way, I don’t use the packaged pressed-powder applicator sponges, I use brushes. I find them considerably better for blending with blush, bronzer and eyeshadow and for even coverage overall. It took some work, but after a few minutes I was able to buff the powder into a finer-looking texture. My favorite element was when I felt my skin - it felt amazingly soft. The powder smelled nice as well. Still, I had to overbronze and blush a bit to counteract the lightness of it - why don’t they offer darker skin tones? I’m not exactly dark, and it doesn’t seem smart to limit your market to white and Asian buyers, since neither of these colors are plausible for even lighter Hispanic skin colors. Despite the shade problems, the coverage was nice and even-looking and finished matte but not in a plastic-y way. I’d probably give it a 9 if they offered a better selection of colors. Very nice feeling and looking powder, but the work I put into it was a bit much, so I’d save it for finishing the undereye concealer since lighter shades don’t tend to be a problem in that area. — 5 years, 12 months ago

    Pur pressed mineral makeup

    I love this powered makeup! It brushes on quickly, evenly and looks and feels great all day. It doesn't clog pores or lay in the growing wrinkles on my face. — 6 years, 6 months ago

    The perfect compact

    I am so in love with this powder. It went on beautifully and provided the perfect amount of coverage without feeling weighty on my face. It stayed in place all day and felt great. — 6 years, 12 months ago
