I have found the perfect powder to layer over light coverage foundations or BB creams to cover any blemishes or redness. This is a powder foundation but I wouldn’t use it alone, I prefer to use this to set my foundation and to get rid of some redness on my cheeks without using a heavy foundation. This review is on the shade Ivory.
The packaging is good, it has a twist on lid, which I like since it wont open if it falls or when I’m carrying it in my bag. It also has a fabric sifter which helps keep most of product inside however, I find that it isn’t as effective as a plastic sifter with smaller holes which you have to shake the product out.
The powder itself has a unpleasant scent but as soon as you apply it on your skin the smell goes away. It blends very nicely on my skin and settles well; I have tried a few powder foundations and they end up sitting on my skin and looking dry. It has a light to medium coverage but it can completely cover a pimple if you concentrate the powder on the spot. It also lasts for a very good amount of time and I find that it controls my oils very well during the day as I’m not left with a shiny t-zone after 4 hours. This powder works well with a big fluffy loose brush rather than a tightly packed brush (which is better for a liquid product) and it will not look cake-y.
The shade is a touch light for me but it isn’t very noticeable on my face.
Overall, I really like this powder to add some coverage and to cover any spots since it lasts much longer than most cream concealers. This also has SPF 15 which is great but I do not think that it is sufficient enough to prevent sunburn. Arbonne products do not contain: talc, parabens, mineral oil, etc.
