    LOVE IT!

    This is my 2nd time trying minerals; the first not being so good. I decided to try this one after reading reviews and I am in love. This makes my skin look flawless and it's not heavy at all. This did not break out my acne-prone, oily skin. Overall, I would def. buy this again. — 5 years, 10 months ago

    Urban Decay Surreal Skin Mineral Makeup : I LOVE THIS STUFF!

    I am probably the only gal in the beauty world who hadn't found mineral makeup glory. So I have officially begun my quest for THE perfect mineral makeup, but my expectations are pretty high, so I anticipate this journey to end up on a very long road; as I am ready for many disappointments, like the one I had recently with Physician's Forumula. Urban Decay is a line that I love. I find them so fun...read more and vibrant, not to mention that they are a permanent resident in my holy grail hall of fame with their Eyeshadow Primer Potion , and honestly while I haven't tried too many items besides their eye makeup; I really have yet to encounter a disappointment with them. Naturally of course, when I first heard about their Surreal Skin Mineral Makeup I was intrigued, but when I heard that it reached its glory status by winning a 'Best of Sephora' award I was REALLY intrigued. However being stuck on my usual MAC. and Chanel foundations lately I had no need for another...or at least I thought. Then all of a sudden it's like mineral makeup in general teamed up with the best publicists in the world because I just simply couldn't do anything beauty related without hearing the word "mineral" in the mix! So as I searched and searched, I couldn't find a review on this thing. How can something that is supposed to be so good, has a 'Best of Sephora' award, and is even backed by Urban Decay's 'Love It or Leave It' guarantee, not appear in my Google search results? Huh? I know, strange, isnt it?! Of course, I just ended up giving into temptation (as usual) and purchased the foundation. All I can say is WOW! Packaging: I love the packaging of this. It comes in a jar with an attached puff that is great for buffing the foundation into your skin. Not only that but the packaging is also mess-free. There is an 'open/close' method to the cap, where you can rotate it one way to open it for makeup application and then you can rotate it the opposite direction to close it and just toss it in your purse, surely preventing the spill and waste of any product. Foundation: While I do wish that Urban Decay would release this in many more colors (thus far there are only 8 shades, booo..), I did match up to 'Vision' perfectly which is their olive shade. I found the foundation to go on like butter! This thing goes on so smoothly and really does blend in well. Applying it with the puff will allow you to gradually build your coverage and unscrewing the cap completely and applying it with a powder brush will allow you to start with a heavier coverage. Either way I loved it because it does give me the FULL coverage that I desire. My skin was even and it looked like I was glowing. Not to mention that this also gave me the most beautiful semi-matte finish that was very natural looking, and was extremely weightless. Usually I like to mix my foundations (as you see in my FOTD's) to better imitate my exact skin-tone, but with this alone it is really all that I needed. Overall: I think that this is WONDERFUL! I truly am happy to have found this especially since I will be traveling in a few weeks to the Caribbean. This makes for a wonderful summertime foundation, if not all year round. I will definitely be buying this again! I LOVED IT! Rating Price: $29.00 Quality: 5 out of 5 Selection: 5 out of 5 Packaging: 5 out of 5 Desired Result: 5 out of 5 Overall Rating: 5 SMOOCHES Would I buy this again?: For sure! — 6 years, 2 months ago

    The best minerals ever

    Every time I wear this, I get SO many compliments on my skin and I have very uneven, acne-prone skin. It makes it look so naturally perfect. I always get asked what I'm using as my skincare regimen and when I tell them I'm wearing a powderform, they don't believe it. I always repurchase! — 6 years, 2 months ago

    Great for everyday wear...

    I don't like foundations or heavy powders so this goes perfectly over a tinted moisturizer for daily wear. When going out, I will layer this over foundation to give it that matte sheen without looking cakey. I like the built in padded applicator; you don't get powdery stuff all over the place. — 6 years, 3 months ago

    Its...ok

    Hmm.. at first I was excited to have it but later found out how easily it comes off. I stained my Bfs shirt when i rested my head on him. Although I live on Hawaii and its usually warm. Pros: Easy Application, Good coverage, Air Brushy Effect. Cons: Comes off easily, — 6 years, 4 months ago

    Review of the pressed, NOT loose, powder

    The surreal skin pressed powder is terrible. It cakes and the lightest color they have looks orange on me. They need more shades and a better formulation. I haven't tried the loose formula so I can't say if it's any better. — 6 years, 9 months ago

    The BEST mineral make-up

    I absolutely LOVE this mineral makeup! It is by far the BEST one on the market and I have tried them all, BE, EDM, JI, Luminere, Meow, Uglogirl, and the list goes on...but it stops here. It looks so natural not cakey, shiney or too matte. My oily/acne prone skin looks flawless. Love the sponge applicator & cute packaging. I have a medium skintone & Hallucination is a perfect match. The pri...read morece is great since you don't need a finishing powder or concealer. It is an amazing product all on its own. — 6 years, 9 months ago
