I want to love it, I really, really do
The upside of this powder is it goes on soooooooo easily with just a few brush strokes, blending effortlessly into the neckline and providing even coverage which lasts all day. The downside is that it seems to cram itself into every fine line and wrinkle on my face, at the same time as making my pores (upon closer inspection) look enormous. And that's after moisturizing like it'll save my life and liberally applying Smashbox Primer underneath. Having said that, if I smooth the powder all over with my fingertips (after applying with a brush) the pores at least diminish, although the lines prove impossible to ''erase." I even tried applying Smashbox Primer first, then a BB cream base second and finally a light dusting of this powder–all of which made things acceptable, but hardly good enough to be worth the extra time and trouble. For comparison to your situation, I'm a youngish looking almost 50-year-old, so perhaps a base that minimizes fine lines is akin to the Holy Grail, but still. I had higher hopes from Jane Iredale.
I have the heavier metal cases, so I was surprised with this flimsier plastic one. I was not aware it would be this lightweight and easier broken if dropped.
Annoyed I had to buy separately
I love Jane iredale, but I was very annoyed about having to buy a compact when their makeup is already expensive.
Still not sure if I can make powder makeup work for me.
I bought this and it's a nice compact, the powder foundation seems nice, but doesn't give that much coverage and seems to accentuate my pores (and they're not large) and fine lines. Maybe I need to use the Jane primer first. I think I'll try that, but I'm still thinking that maybe only really young people (in their twenties) should use mineral makeup. The jury is still out on this one for me, but if you like mineral makeup, go for it because this one is top quality and has the added benefit of being SPF 20 (which I do like.)
