Jane Iredale PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation SPF 20 Reviews

Very, very long time I planned to write a post about wonderful mineral powder Jane Iredale PurePressed Base. So long ago that I managed to use 2.5 refills already. But now a little experience has accumulated in choosing shades, which I will tell you about.

So, first about the powder in general.

In general, everything is in one bottle, as the manufacturer promises.

An extensive palette of shades cannot but please, everyone can choose for himself what he needs.
I started with a shade Natural and a pair of samplers in the shade Bisque
Natural It turned out to be a light cold shade with a light pink tint. Pale Since I like more warm tones in make-up, the shade didn’t suit me a bit. But it was winter and it was, in principle, not so important, so I used refill completely (I’ll clarify that powder is sold in two versions - with and without powder box (replaceable refill) - I buy the latter for reasons of economy and because I’m nowhere to go I don’t wear powder).
Hue Bisque I immediately put it aside. Too light and too ... yellow. I think this is for very, very pale-skinned girls. I really don’t understand why then the yellow subton.
Then, after consultation with the seller, the color was ordered Amber. This, of course, is now my mast-time for winter time, when I am without a tan. Very nice, light shade without any focus - not yellow, not gray and not pink. Pleasant, slightly peach hue. Gives a healthy, beautiful complexion without dramatic pallor and excessive yellowness. Unfortunately, this is the only refill that I won’t show you live, because it is worn to holes and is no longer an aesthetically pleasing sight.
Still decided to show, not for the faint of heart:
Now, in the summer, when the tan appeared, the shade of Amber became pale and I ordered Latte. I was a little scared of the color saturation, but at first I used it quite successfully as a bronzer, combining it with amber, and now I put it quite nicely on my entire face, avoiding the area around my eyes.
I will try to compare the shades, how much this is in the power of my camera.

Now about the properties.
The manufacturer promises us something like this:
in fact, it’s a lie - one cannot achieve such an effect with powder. Maybe if you use the whole range of JI products, you can disguise yourself like that, I will not say so.
The powder has an average coating density. Minor redness, light pigmentation will hide, but nothing more. It fits evenly and very lightly. However, my skin does not matte at all. Region T of the zone I periodically powder with the usual powder Esti Lauder. But, in fact, I do not need strong matting. It’s not visible near it, but it doesn’t hide the pores, I think you need to use a good base for this. The face does not dry (but I still use it on a moisturizing day cream). The sponge in the powder is quite tolerable, it gives a denser and faster coating than the brush, but quickly becomes unusable.
