To be honest I purchased this foundation to use as a powder over my liquid foundation, but after using it I found I can use it alone and still get great coverage. Really love it!
Coverage with SPF
So far, I like the coverage although I’ve never used a mineral powder. It’s got great staying power with little need for reapplication. I think using the right brush and primer also helps.
The finishing touch.
I use this as the lock-in finishing touch after applying my Colorescience Even Up (50SPF). I'm an outdoorsy type and am in the sun & on the water a lot. I winter over in Florida, so sun exposure is a constant battle. I've already had multiple squamous cell skin cancers removed and am all about the sunscreen. I also break out easily and most regular sunscreens are tough on my face. I'm looking for evening-out skin tone and sun protection with a natural looking finish that will last most of the day. This is easy to apply (and re-apply) and doesn't cake. I keep it light, and it's not my primary foundation, so I can only speak to it used sparingly. I like it very much and have re-purchased several times.
Colorscience Pressed Foundation
This product feels great on the skin when used properly (very scantly). It doesn't look like many pressed powders. Doesn't cake on, spreads evenly and really gives a very natural look to the skin. It stays on throughout the day too! Just dust it on very lightly!
I had never used a mineral powder foundation until this was applied on me in my plastic surgeons office. The coverage is build-able and gives my face a nice finish. I like to apply it with a kabuki brush for best application.
I bought this from my friend recommendation, I love it. I put on this product on top of my moisturizer and my face look very smooth and hold up for the day. Since this is a mineral power, I feel my face so fresh and no power residue look. will continue to use this product now.
Good SPF powder
This SPF powder is perfect for days when I just want to wear a powder over my moisturizer or sunscreen just to give myself a little color and reduce shine. It’s also great for setting liquid foundation without caking or creasing in areas of wrinkles or pores. It doesn’t oxidize/change color during the day and it looks nice even after a long day outside.
Colorscience is the Best make-up for your skin!!
I have been using Colorscience for quiet a few years. It is the best makeup I've ever used and is great for your skin, the look is flawless and healthy for your skin, has the best ingredient's and will not damage your skin, I Highly recommend using this brand just like my dermatologist suggested to me years ago! Thank you again, Colorscience!!
I love Colorescience, but this shade is too light for me.
color is too light for my skin.
Love this powder
I have used the pressed powder for years and now the newer version in the blue compact. It provides great coverage and applies evenly. Nothing else compares
Colorescience Natural Finish Pressed Foundation SPF 20
I bought this powder foundation based on the reviews only, and I am so happy with it! It gives natural finish, but I can build it up. Somehow, it gives me a healthy glow (not oily or glittery). I will keep buying this product!!
Said the color was a replacement for California Girl (a previous color) but it's not the same. Too pasty and dull - not at all like California Girl.
We need California girl back! And loose powder.
Love this foundation. But I miss the loose powder option and California girl was a perfect match for my skin. Overall, stays on well, can be used with beauty blender type of sponge too.
Best for sun defense in makeup
New shades made it difficult to pick out online. Seems to be same quality product.
California Girl (the shade) over here - get Medium Sand
TL:DR: If your color was California Girl, buy Medium *Sand*. Medium Bisque is not deep enough. I've used Colorescience for like..10 years? A long time, anyway. California Girl was my go-to, and I stockpiled a couple of years ago. Since I was running low, it was time to buy more. Except they don't make that shade or the loose powder anymore. I tried Medium Bisque based on the color matching guide and recommendation from LS but it was just too light. I'm on the lighter side of California Girl, too - it was always a touch darker than my neck. Which is why I went with the lighter Medium Bisque to start out. I returned it for the Medium Sand, and found that although it looks darker pressed, it''s actually a truer California Girl than Medium Bisque. So, if you used California Girl, I''d recommend Medium Sand and not Medium Bisque.
I love this brand. I have oily acne prone skin and Colorescience is the only makeup that stops blemishes before they start.
Offers great coverage
This is a very well-formulated product. It makes the skin look flawless and my pores disappear when I use it. Despite giving such high coverage, it looks quite natural on the skin.
Best Mineral Foundation on the Market!
I've been using Colorescience Pressed Mineral Foundation for years, first only available through my dermatologist, but now, I have been able to purchase it through LovelySkin.com. I have rosacea for which I was seeing the dermatologist for who recommended this product to me. Because of the sensitivity of my skin as well as the redness all over, this product covers flawlessly without irritation at all and bonus...it is a 50 spf sun protection. I literally lived at the beach, and all I ever wore was this and my face never burned. Best product on the market! Has a nice iridescent glow to the finish that leaves me "glowing" which I love as well.
Love that product
I discovered Colorescience when I went to my dermatologist and have been using it ever since. They just changed the name of the colors, and it took me a couple tries to figure out which one to use. It goes smoothly on your face and stays well. I use it every day.
Bring back color shade California girl
New powder is definitely better but shades just don't come close to matching my skin anymore.
The best coverage
I've been using this product for over a year. With Rosacea I have a lot of problems with breakouts. This product gives me full coverage and no breakouts.
Finish Pressed Powder
I like this pressed powder foundation even better than the previous formulation. The coverage is better for me which makes applying my make-up routine go faster.
I love this foundation it covers nicely and always appreciate extra spf! Only reason not a 5 is price. LovelySkin is the ONLY place to buy this but I can go through it quickly. Also miss their old colors, California Girl was perfect even for this Colorado girl.
New and improved!!
Now that Allergan has purchased Colorscience, the pressed foundation is improved! And I loved the old formula too! By improved, I mean the powder is finer milled and even the coverage is better without looking cake. Way to go Colorscience!
I didn't like this pressed foundation as well as the Colorescience loose powder but it's good for a quick broad spectrum foundation when I'm in a hurry. It works best with moisturizer. I am a huge fan of Colorescience products. I love the primers. I wish they would bring back the spf 50 broad spectrum loose power in the jar.
