  • The beads or spheres visible in the airless pump are actually liposomes encapsulating liposomes.
  • State-of-the-art technology prevents active ingredients from degrading and allows actives to time-release into the skin.

Key Ingredients:

  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Vitamin C
  • Coenzyme Q10

Aqua/Water/Eau, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Glycerin, Algae, Sodium Hyaluronate, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, Salix Nigra (Willow) Bark Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Oil, Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Leaf Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Raphanus Sativus (Radish) Root Extract, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan) Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Squalane, Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10), Boron Nitride, Stearic Acid.

  • Apply Liquid Minerals with our Foundation Brush.
  • The first few pumps will release a clear gel. This is aloe vera. Rub it into your hands; it's good for them.
  • Two pumps of Liquid Minerals on the back of your hand are usually enough to cover most of your face.
  • Pick it up with the dry Foundation Brush for a heavier coverage. Wet the brush for a more sheer coverage.
  • Brush Amazing Base or PurePressed Base on top of Liquid Minerals for broad-spectrum sun protection.
  • Use as a light under-eye concealer. Pat it gently under the eye with your finger. It's like magic!
  • For oily skin, use very little (if any) moisturizer before application. Applying Absence or Absence 2 Oil Control Primer will smooth the skin's surface, control excess oil and help prevent color change. It also provides a broad-spectrum SPF 15.
  • Apply the Liquid Minerals over the nose and other oily areas to minimize large pores. Then dust with pressed minerals over the entire face for UVA/UVB SPF 20 and a flawless finish.

The best foundation ever!

5/5
This foundation is the best I have ever used and I have used a lot of them. I have very dry skin and it leaves my skin very moist looking and evens out skin tones. Please don't ever change the formula.

Gritty pieces don't blend?

4/5
I just received my first ever liquid mineral foundation today. I was excited , but right now am disappointed. I have tried a couple times today and I am getting little gritty pieces that don't ever blend? It has been subzero weather here and I thought possibly it froze on the delivery truck, so will let it sit overnight. Other than that, and based on other reviews, I am concerned that it has a faulty pump. Will try again tomorrow. :(

Our Response

We’re sure this experience is due to a faulty pump and we’re sorry! We want your first experience with this product to be successful and our Personal Shoppers can send you a new pump. Please contact them at 877-869-9420 or personalshoppers@janeiredale.com.

clumpy

3/5
I purchased this foundation at the end of the summer. It comes out of the pump with a lumpy cottage cheese consistancy. I need to really work it into my skin to get the lumps to smooth out. I like it after I smooth it out, but it is strange. Is this normal? I still have an inch left, and trying to decide to repurchase.

Our Response

This isn’t normal! We’d like to send you a new pump which will make the consistency much smoother. Our Personal Shoppers will arrange this and please contact them at 877-869-9420 or personalshoppers@janeiredale.com. We hope you’ll give it another chance!

Honey Bronze

5/5
Can't wait for this color to return. The best color for this outstanding product

love liquid minerals!

5/5
This is the best foundation I have ever used as far a looking natural and staying all day. I also have very sensitive skin around my eyes and it doesn't bother them. Unfortunately, I too have had more than one bottle that came out lumpy. I'm glad to know that replacing the pump will correct that. Thanks for the info.

great liquid minerals foundation!

5/5
I use the liquid minerals in fall and winter and the pressed mineral foundation in the spring/summer months. My skin is dryer in cold months and I find all powder mineral foundations to look to matte on my skin. By switching to the liquid minerals, my skin looks and feels dewy and soft throughout the winter. I love it!

FLAWLESS

5/5
This is the only liquid makeup that does not make me break out and leaves my skin looking flawless. It also makes your skin feel silky smooth and refreshed once you apply it. Absolutely love this product!

Picking the right foundation color to create the flawless look

5/5
Sometimes the task can be difficult, but once you achieve the right color foundation it will be well worth it. If you are choosing the liquid mineral foundation, you might want to sample some at a beauty supply that carries it, because the liquid foundation appears different in color than the pressed, do to its light reflecting nature. Indoor and outdoor lighting can make a world of difference too. If your skin tone is light to medium, with none, or very little pink, I would go with the color Warm Silk. For blush, use PurePressed Blush, if you wish to have a subtle look, choose Whisper, which is a pale peachy pink, and looks great for the summer or fall. For a more dramatic look use Cotton Candy, both are frosted and create a heathy glow. To create a matt finish and flawless look, dust with PureMatt Finishing Powder, either before or after your blush and you will achieve your perfect look.

Lumpy :(

2/5
I started wearing Jane iredale's liquid mineral foundation in 2005 and i loved it! The color was amazing, the covarage was perfect for my terrible acne prone skin. Until about a year ago when i bought a new liquid foundation and everytime i pumped it came out lumpy...i tried every method possible, with a blending sponge, brush, fingers.i even tried exchanging a few times.nothing worked! I just had lumps of the mineral on my face and the covarage wasnt the same since the foundation wasnt coming out uniform... I was wondering if it could be the packaging or is it a new formula?? I am just so disapointed because this was my favorite foundation ever and i have moved overseas so having my brother send me this foundationall the way from California to Brazil for it not to work its just a a real bummer... i really hope you guys figure out what is wrong so i can go back to wearing it!

Our Response

Thank you for your loyalty! We haven’t change the formula of Liquid Minerals and since the product is coming out clumpy, we’re sure a new pump will solve the problem. The great news is that we can send you a replacement pump so you can fully enjoy your favorite foundation again! To receive a pump, please contact our Personal Shoppers at 877-869-9420 or personalshoppers@janeiredale.com.

Unfortunately I can't use this makeup

1/5
I'm very disappointed - after investing in the pressed powder and liquid minerals I have found a rash all over my cheeks after just 1 day of use.... I really wanted this to work - natural and I initially felt great but unfortunately will not work for me.

Our Response

Oh no! We’re sorry to hear about this and if you have a known sensitivity, please feel free to review the ingredient listing next to the products on our website. If you’re interested in a return or exchange, please contact the place of purchase, and we’re sure they’d be happy to help you!

Honey Bronze

5/5
Reissue Honey Bronze foundation!!! It's very difficult to find the perfect color match, this had the right amount of color without being too dark. I don't want to look for another brand or color. I have used colorscience in the past put prefer the light coverage, but will need to go back to the other brand.

Our Response

We heard all of you and we are bringing Honey Bronze back! Woo hoo! However, it will take us a little while to get it back into production. You can expect it in early 2014.

Mineral Foundation - Autumn

5/5
I had cystic acne in my 20's and was left with severe scarring. I opted for Fraxel Laser, which was very painful. My doctor sold the Mineral Foundation at his office and had me try it after I healed. I love this make up. I still had some scars, but this Foundation really gives me great coverage. I have been using this make up for at least 8 years. Today I found out that you will no longer carry this color. I honestly do not know which make up I will use from now on. Your rep suggested 2 other products to use in its place, but I am very oily & adding too many products would not be wise for me.I have always received many compliments on my face, I know the make up is the reason! I am so disappointed in losing this color.

esthetician

5/5
I love this beautiful foundation and sell it at a dermatology office. It is refreshing and hydrating to the skin and looks flawless! Please bring back the honey bronze color, as I have had several requests and that is the color that I wear! The reccommended substitutions are not as good.

Heavenly

5/5
I've been using this foundation for about 2 months now and I couldn't be happier with it. I used to have acne prone skin and was using the Jane Iredale BB Cream to cover it and that product is amazing too. It gave me the full coverage I needed and allowed my skin to heal underneath. Now that my skin is clear I use this everyday and it's very hydrating and helps to even out my skin tone. Sometimes I will even accidently fall asleep with it on and I've never woke up with any sign of a breakout. I will wear this forever. It is an amazing product and I highly recommend it.

NO HONEY BRONZE?!!

5/5
I am severely disappointed that this shade has been discontinued. I have tried other shades and they simply DO NOT LOOK GOOD. AT.ALL. I have used Jane Iredale for years, because I was told many times that my skin was just "too hard to match" it was pure relief to FINALLY find a shade that was a perfect fit. And I mean perfect. So, now I am left to go and try to find something comparable, which looks grim. Thanks guys!!

No Coverage

1/5
This is by far one of the worst foundations that I have ever used. Using for a few days and just terrible. No coverage at all. It made my skin look old and the product settles in the fine lines. Pores even looked bigger. I found it quite drying like the powder mineral foundation. Thank heaven I only paid half price due to a sale! Save your hard earned money!

Our Response

We’re sorry Liquid Minerals didn’t work for you! Liquid Minerals is a foundation that provides sheer to light coverage, and we like to refer to it as a ‘skin care serum with pigment’ since it’s full of amazing anti-aging benefits. Liquid Minerals has a unique technology that allows these skin care benefits to work for your skin throughout the day. If you feel your skin needs a little extra moisture, you may want to try Smooth Affair Primer or spritz after application with a Hydration Spray; besides the added moisture, they feel great! Since this isn’t the product for you, our Personal Shoppers would love to help you find an alternative foundation. You can contact them at 877-869-9420 or personalshoppers@janeiredale.com.

Please bring back HONEY BRONZE

5/5
I am devastated to hear that you have discontinued Honey Bronze! Please bring it back. I love my Jane Iredale Mineral foundation and I would hate to go through the process of trying to find another brand. This is the only colour that suited me. Please! Please! Please!

Our Response

We hear you and have passed along your love! We have alternative shades that shoppers have been happy with including Natural and Suntan Liquid Minerals. Our Personal Shoppers will be glad to help you determine which would work best for you and please feel free to contact them at 877-869-9420 or personalshoppers@janeiredale.com.

I Want My Honey Bronze!

5/5
The liquid minerals is without a doubt the best makeup base I have ever used. I have used it for years, sometimes switching to other brands to see if there was anything better out there and there never was. However, I cannot tell you how disappointed I am that the liquid minerals Honey Bronze has been discontinued. It was an awesome color and from reading so many of these reviews expressing the same disappointment that it has been discontinued, I am wondering why! And why it can't be brought back! None of the remaining colors work for me. Please, please bring back our Honey Bronze!

Gives that airbrushed look but...

5/5
I must have a faulty pump like other reviewers have said- the product comes out all chalky sandy. I wasted some by pumping it a bunch of times to see if that would help but it didn't. I can still use it but at times seems watery & yet gritty. But when I DO get it to blend it looks really nice, usually liquids dry very caked on me and this gives a dewy fresh look!

Our Response

We're glad you enjoy Liquid Minerals' dewy finish! It sounds like you have a faulty pump and we'd like to send you a new one. When you have a moment, please contact our Personal Shoppers at 877-869-9420 or personalshoppers@janeiredale.com.

Warm Sienna Liquid Foundation

3/5
I recently started using Jane Iredale products and so far i'm very pleased with the product. I have very sensitive & combination skin. The foundation & pressed powder stays put onto my skin and last me all day. However, my only complaint is half way through the bottle of my Liquid foundation the product ends up coming out dry and not moist when u first dispense it on the very day u opened it. Does that ever happen to anyone else? $50 is a lot of money im spending for a liquid foundation and i dont feel like the product should be this way considering the amount im paying. Overall, i still adore the coverage JI give me. Lets see how it goes on my next bottle.

Our Response

We’re glad that jane iredale is working with your sensitive skin! Liquid Minerals should remain moist from first pump till last! If you feel it has changed consistency, please feel free to contact our Personal Shoppers to arrange a replacement. You can reach them at 877-869-9420 or personalshoppers@janeiredale.com.

Honey bronze

5/5
I've recently come back to Jane iredale after trying to find make up that would be less expensive,Silly me, only to find that honey bronze is gone. I went to many retailers in my area and either they tried to sell me on the new Jane iredale makeup (which for me was awful) or they had limited colors in the minerals. No one would let me sample. I contacted costumer service and they are sending me a few samples of different pressed powder. Hopefully I can find a match because I love this product. What I've heard so far isn't reassuring. I've been told to buy 2 colors and mix which would mean I'm spending$100 on make up or use the pressed powder on top. A lot of times I don't use pressed powder because I like more of a dewy finish. PLEASE CONSIDER BRINGING BACK HONEY BRONZE!!!!!!!

Color discontinued!

5/5
I have been using this product for many years and couldn't speak more highly about it except that now I am extremely disappointed that Honey Bronze is discontinued! I have tried natural and suntan but they just don't work! Any consideration of adding Honey Bronze back into the collection? I have no idea what other color to try. I am so upset! Please add Honey Bronze back.

Our Response

Thank you for your loyalty and we're sorry about Honey Bronze! We've passed along your disappointment to our product development team. Our Personal Shoppers will be happy to recommend a new shade for you based on your experience with Natural and Suntan. You can reach them at 877-869-9420 or personalshoppers@janeiredale.com.

Update!

5/5
I wrote a bad review on this foundation because it was leaving mineral clumps all over my face and wouldn't blend. I was contacted and sent an extra pump (and two samples of lipstick, which are great, I plan on buying). Anyways, the new pump works great and I am SO impressed with this foundation. It slides on good, blends well, looks natural, stays. It's amazing. It doesn't feel thick, my skin can breathe, and I get SO many compliments on how great my skin looks. This was my first purchase from Jane Iredale and I'm addicted, I'm planning on transitioning over all of my makeup to Jane Iredale products. Great products and great customer service. Thank you!

Gritty pieces don't blend in

2/5
While the color (Amber) is a perfect match, after the first time using it the pump dispenses small gritty pieces of product that don't blend in no matter how much I rub them. I take a tissue to blot them off my face, but am disappointed like some of the other reviewers in the pump's flawed design. Colors are beautiful though

Our Response

Oh no! We're sorry your pump isn't working properly. We'll contact you privately to arrange a new pump sent out right away, so you can enjoy your Liquid Minerals again!

Mineral foundation

5/5
This foundation is great. I love how I feel like I'm giving something good to my skin when I apply it. It's very cool and soothing. its wet not oily. Its very spa like if that makes sense. it can cover well.It's pretty sheer at first but is buildable.Now as much as I love jane iredale I am not satisfied by the girl who supposedly is the expert that sells it at my local spa. She was very rude to me. I made it to the 500 dollar milestone at the spa (all of it was spent on jane iredale for myself to use and review) and the girl told me this is not a makeup shop. So snobby! I felt deflated. Exspecially after how much I had spent over the past two weeks. I see many people buying makeup there so I don't know why she treated me this way. She also color matched me wrong on the pure press base i felt on purpose. whats bad is that i put up with it because i wanted to buy this makeup so bad. Now i feel like I have to order off the Internet just to get this brand. That's not helpful if you need something in a pinch. It's very discouraging.

Our Response

We're so happy you're enjoying Liquid Minerals! Thank you for sharing your experience at your local retail location, and we can't say how sorry we are. We'd be happy to help you find an alternative retail location or send you samples so you can find your match in PurePressed Base. We'll message you privately to arrange this, and thank you for your loyalty!

Love it!

5/5
I bought this after reading the reviews and absolutely love it! I put it on the back of my hand then use a brush to put it on. It stays put!

what happened to the color Autumn?

5/5
I had found the best match to my skin with the color Autumn. Now they don't have it? has anyone had the same problem and tried aother color that worked? If so, Please tell me the color. I'm going cazy ere.

Our Response

Autumn Liquid Minerals is still available on our website for a limited time so feel free to stock up! This shade is being phased out of our line and we recommend trying Caramel Liquid Minerals as an alternative.

Liquid Minerals

5/5
Several years ago, I did a TON of research to find exactly the perfect shade of healthy, natural foundation, and I was thrilled to find it in the Honey Bronze Liquid Minerals Foundation from Jane Iredale. I have been ordering it on automatic refill from DermStore.com for years--but today they told me this shade has been discontinued. WHY?????!!!! It's not easy to find Jane Iredale products to try out new shades--I had to drive a long way to do it the first time, and believe me I tried every shade before choosing Honey Bronze. Nothing else came close to matching my skin color--Natural was too pale and made me look sickly, and I can't stand the feel of powder on my face. I will have to start over with another brand now, which I really don't want to do. PLEASE BRING BACK HONEY BRONZE!!!!

Our Response

We're so sorry we no longer have your shade. Since you mentioned Natural didn't work for you, we hope you'll give Suntan a try!

Lumpy :(

1/5
This doesn't go on smoothly. The minerals leaves bumpy lumps and don't blend. If I use my fingers it works a little better but it still leaves little gritty pieces of mineral around. It doesn't hydrate my skin really either. I can't really tell if there's much coverage either. *sigh* I'll try the other one, but I really liked the idea of this one, just doesn't work.

Our Response

We’re sorry for your disappointment! After a little extra blending, Liquid Minerals should go on smooth and provide sheer to light coverage. Occasionally our Liquid Mineral pumps can act up, causing the product not to blend properly. This can also impact the performance of the time released skin care benefits. We’ll contact you privately so we can send you a new pump which will give you a much better experience!

A BOMB

1/5
I wanted to love this make up. It was light and sheer the first time I used it and then as other reviews have stated it became clumpy, like there were little balls all over my face when I would apply it. I was pumping the bottle away to get a smooth application. No dice. Maybe some bottles are defective.

Our Response

Liquid Minerals shouldn’t be clumpy and if the consistency has changed for you, the pump must be acting up. We’d love to send you a new Liquid Minerals pump! This will allow you to enjoy your Liquid Minerals again. Please contact our Personal Shoppers at 877-869-9420 or personalshoppers@janeiredale.com, so we can help you with a replacement pump.

Discontinued :(

5/5
I always had a hard time finding just the right shade of foundation until I tried Jane Iredale. I was thrilled to find my PERFECT shade! I have been using Honey Bronze Liquid Minerals Foundation and LOVE it. But now I found out it's being discontinued and I am very sad. Most colors are too pale, too yellow, too dark, too . . . . Honey Bronze was just the right amount of Pink, not too light and not too dark. It was JUST RIGHT! Is it possible they will bring it back? Debbie

Our Response

We're so sorry to hear of your disappointment! May we ask if you've tried Natural Liquid Minerals? This is an alternative to Honey Bronze and can be topped with a Honey Bronze powder if you'd like. We'll be sure to pass along your love for Honey Bronze!

bummer!

2/5
I love this company and buy everything I puy on my face from Iredale, but I recently purchased a Liquid Minerals Foundation that has what looks and feels like many tiny bits of paper or some-such thing that won't smooth out no matter how much I blend it on my face or in my hand. Faulty batch?

Our Response

Thank you for sharing your jane iredale love! Although a little additional blending is needed after dispensing Liquid Minerals, it shouldn’t be so clumpy that it can’t be well blended. We’ve heard of this happening on occasion, and the solution is a new pump. Even though the product is dispensing, the series of screens within the pump, that blend the beads, aren’t doing their job! We’ll contact you privately to send you a new pump so you can get the full experience!

application

5/5
I am an esthetician and recommend this wonderful foundation to all my clients although I do not sell it in my business. (Business is in extension of home) I have so many clients that absolutely love the product but I do show them my method of application. After trying so many different ways I found the best way is using one pump onto my fingertips, I then move my fingertips together pressing ever so softly until the little dots have disappeared and then apply ever so gently to the face. Then I use the spray and blend finishing with the gentle downward stroke. Their usual comment, OMG my face is glowing. I do have a huge request....Last year my two most favorite colors were removed from the line. Honey bronze liquid foundation and Maggie lipstick. I noticed that there are more warm colors than cool, but the cool complexions are just as abundant as ever. Please think abaout adding more cool liquid foundations, especially in the darker shades. And Maggie, well I still cannot find a replacement, it was the most beautiful shade you have in your lip line. Actually I have been using one of your cream blushes, close but not Maggie. Thanks

Beautiful and gluten free

5/5
Love it...it is everything I have been looking for! It is light and gives my skin a natural, dewy glow...and it is the first foundation that I have found since going gluten free that doesn't react with my skin! Thank you!!! I have converted all my makeup to Jane iredale and won't be going back, although it is pricey it lasts forever and is well worth it!

Perfect foundation for light/med coverage

5/5
If you need something heavier than a tinted moisturizer, but traditional foundation or BB creams are too heavy, this Liquid Minerals is perfect! It can be layered, so I can target certain areas with a little more coverage and other areas with a little less. The end product is skin that has coverage but is very natural looking (even in the sunlight). This line also has a wide range of shades, and I recommend being matched by someone trained in this line to find the right shade (don't try to figure it our yourself by testing it on your hand or arm, you will most likely get the wrong shade). I haven't had any problems with the beads blending together. It works well with my combo/oily skin and has good staying power even without a primer.

Liquid Minerals Foundation

1/5
This does not cover at all---it feels good when you apply it---light and smooth, but it does not mix well, no matter how you shake the bottle, or how much you try an blend it together before application. As other reviewers have stated, it leaves little dots of mineral makeup and you have to try and wipe it away. I cover it with the powder foundation---if not, you might as well just apply water to your skin. Very expensive for such an ineffective product.

Our Response

Our Liquid Minerals is our sheerest foundation, and it’s loaded with skin care, which is why it feels so good. Since it has no SPF, we do recommend you wear pressed or loose powder over it, and this will help you achieve the coverage you want. Try pumping a couple of squirts of the liquid onto the back of your hand and using a Foundation Brush to mix it; the warmth from your skin will help to combine the mineral beads and skincare together. Apply it to your face in a crisscross pattern and layer your powder over top. We hope this helps! On the other hand, if you want fuller coverage in one step, you might want to try Glow Time, our full coverage BB cream. We will contact you privately to see if you want to arrange an exchange.

Liquid Minerals

4/5
I have used this product for years, but am starting to question if it's the right one for me. I am 50 years old, with large pores and greasy skin which is acne prone. I use this foundation, followed by amazing minerals powder for extra coverage. It looks great for maybe an hour and then my large pores look accentuated as my oil takes over. I have tried a BB creme sample, and broke out. Also did the moisturizing tint (not enough coverage). Do you have any ideas? Any plans to make a oil free heavier coverage foundation?

Our Response

Skin can change over time, so it’s perfectly natural to question your beauty routine! For you, we recommend adding Absence Oil Control Primer to your morning regimen. Absence will reduce the appearance of pores and help keep oil at bay, all the while keeping your makeup looking fresh even after that first hour after application!

Worth the cost!

5/5
This foundation is amazing. It really does act as a second skin, you can't tell it's there, yet it stays on, even with some seating on a hot day. Amazing! One lasts me six months, which makes it a good value in my opinion. Love it!

Yuk, Yuk

This was one of the worst products I have ever used. No coverage, except for the little clumps of those beads that were left on my face. Unfortunately, I didn't save my packaging, so I am stuck with the product - which will be going in the trash.

We are very sorry that you are not in love with our Liquid Minerals. We are happy to offer you an exchange, please contact our Personal Shoppers at personalshoppers@janeiredale.com or call 877-869-9420.

Not Happy

1/5
I have bought this foundation twice thinking that maybe the first one was a "bad" one. EVERYTIME I use this product it comes out bumpy and so when I put it on the beads just stay on my face. It looks as if I have random clumps on my face. I've used my hand and foundation tool and nothing...

Our Response

NO SPF/SAMPLES

1/5
Have used Estee Lauder foundation for years and it has a SPF. This one does not. My dermatologist recommended using a mineral makeup and suggested this one. Of course they sell this one. Decided I would try this even with the many bad reviews I had read. Big mistake. Jane Iredale will NOT provide samples. First time I have ever experienced that. They insist on you having their representatives do your makeup to find best color. I did this and was assured that the colors were the ones for me. I bought liquid and pressed base powder. Family and friends said I looked orange. Apparently different lighting? When I went back to exchange they said they couldn't exchange, would just have to GIVE me more and they would have to eat the cost.(I didn't feel like they were "giving" me anything). They were very obvious in their irritation with me. NOT a good practice to gain new customers. This time they wanted to apply both and have me wear it home and come back AGAIN if I liked the color to get makeup.I believe I will stick with a company/product that is concerned with my satisfaction and willing to provide a couple of color samples that I can try in my home before making a decision on color. Who has the time to make numerous trips to Dr's. office or salon!!!!If they ever begin giving samples I may try again, otherwise they are not getting any more of my money.

Our Response

We are so sorry to hear that you had a bad experience and that you were not offered samples. We have many samples and would love to get some to you. We want you to be happy and we would like to set up an exchange for you. I will be contacting you privately to arrange that and get you matched up to a color you are happy with!

Not for me

1/5
I am not a fan of this product at all, it leaves a chalky residue of product on my skin. Also, the coverage is very minimal. I tried several different application types but always a chalky residue was left behind. I have moved to the BB cream and am pleased.

Best Ever

5/5
This is the best foundation I have ever used. I have tried many from QVC and find I am still going back to Jane. I get so many complements when using,it covers but is natural and feels great on my face.Do not be afraid to try even though pricy worth it in the end.

LOVE IT! 5 stars ++++

5/5
I attended a gala event for which this make-up was expressly bought You have a life-long customer...I received more compliments from people I didn't even know! They said my "skin glowed", and that's not bad to hear as a 67 year-old!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for creating a product for older women who still want to present their best face to the public. As a retired teacher, I wish I had found you sooner, but, as they say, better late than never. This foundation laid the canvas for your other wonderfully created products to do their jobs! Best of all, it didn't affect my ultra-sensitive skin.

Worth the price!

I thought this foundation was a little expensive but I have been wanting to try a liquid mineral foundation. I love this product! A little goes a long way and it smooths into your skin very easy. It feels silky on your face. It does not provide a lot of coverage if you are looking for that. I pair it with the mineral loose powder and the coverage is perfect.

Love this makeup

5/5
My skin was so dry and the powder bases made it look dryer. The Liquid Minerals makes my look moisturized and beautiful...I'm thrilled. I also have very sensitive skin and most make up irritates or makes it break out. I'm pleased to say Jane Iredale products have never done either. I give this make up an A+++!

Amazing

5/5
I love this foundation! I am using a prescription acne treatment and this foundation does a great job of evening my complexion while not irritating my very sensitive skin. The coverage is sheer to medium, but tones the red enough for my needs(I also use disappear for blemishes and dust amazing base when i want more coverage). I tossed all my other make up and will only use Jane Iredale :)

Love it!

5/5
I have gotten so many compliments on my foundation since I started using Jane Iredale. I have even noticed a change in my skin for the better. Provides natural coverage when used alone or full coverage when paired with either the loose or pressed powder. Fantastic!

I'm sold

4/5
I have to be honest, it took me some time to get used to liquid minerals foundation. Once I found the right shade and proper application, I have been happy with the result. Goes on nicely with the flocked sponge. Next, I will finish with amazing base when I want more coverage. Overall, a nice product that feels good on the skin.

Wonderful!

5/5
I've just got and tried my new foundation and was impressed - so silky and light. I can't feel it on my skin - very comfortable. And what is really amazing that this foundation coverage is very good. I mean it is not transparent like tinted moisturizers. And having acne prone sensitive skin I couldn't find a good foundation until today! Thank you!

Love the Concept

3/5
I absolutely loved the idea of the liposome capsule and delivery system with this foundation. I became a Jane Iredale fan with the starter kit in creamy, and have purchased everything from the Mystikol set, the 'smoke gets in your eyes' shadow set, to each color of the lip fixation product, and have been thrilled. I am wondering whether my unsatisfactory experience with the liquid minerals foundation is an unusual one, or whether others have experienced a gritty texture that almost peels off the skin after a short period of time. I tried pumping more of the product out of the container, to the point I had wasted a significant amount, and yes, indeed, discovered a slightly creamier product. However, the next time I used it, there was the gritty stuff again! SInce I am a huge fan of the line in general, and really want to have the results others have spoken about in their reviews of the liquid foundation, I hope that I simply got a "bad batch'" similar to that of other reviewers who bought the lipstick. I had a similar experience with the shade "sharon"...so beautiful in the tube, I couldn't wait to apply it, but was extremely disappointmented with the dry texture and flat color. I have ordered other shades of the lipstick to try, and at $19 I am willing to take a chance. However, the liquid minerals foundation is a little pricey to waste copious amounts looking for the right texture, or to try numerous bottles in search of a 'good batch" ! Has anyone else had this experience?

Our Response

Hi there, I am so glad you are enjoying your other products and I hope we can find a solution for your Liquid Minerals as well. It may be that you are applying too much. Two pumps covers your whole face. Pump the product twice onto the back of your hand. Mix with your Foundation Brush in circular motions on the back of your hand until all ingredients are blended. It may have some texture, don't worry, it will smooth out on your face. Use the brush to work it into the face using criss-cross motions. If this does not give the result you expect, you may have a faulty bottle. Please contact a Personal Shopper at 1-877-869-9420 or personalshoppers@janeiredale.com to arrange a replacement.

Not impressed

1/5
I bought this and tried it for several days. On me, it does not spread, it remains in little clumps all over my face. I tried the Jane Iredale sponge, I tried my fingers, I tried my own makeup sponge...nothing worked. Maybe there is something wrong with my bottle. I am returning for something else. I sure hope I like the tinted moisturizer. I do like the bronzer and the loose powder.

Confused

4/5
I'm confused as for how many stars to give. I love the feel of the product, but not happy with colour. Guess I was talked into a wrong one - it looks good on cheeks and leaves no visible line on the neck, but nose and forehead look very pale, kind if ghosty. T-zone is oily and has acne, maybe it has smth to do with that?.. I got Warm Siena.

Our Response

Hi there, I think you have figured out the issue yourself! It may be the oiliness in your t-zone that is causing it to look different. First, be sure you are working the product into your skin well, sometimes this is enough. If it still looks different on your t-zone, I suggest Absence Oil-Control Primer on the t-zone, under your Liquid Minerals. Good luck!

Jane Iredale liquid mineral foundation: Simply beautiful, and wonderfully astonishing. The foundation is unique and covers each and every flaw! Not cheap foundation nor is a waste of money. Is recommended to everyone, one who uses will recieve the optimum results!! Simply the best.

It is like second skin

4/5
I went to salon on newbury and tried it today, and it doesn't feel like I'm wearing makeup at all! Coverage was so-so through...I guess that's what I get for "sheer". Anyway you need to top it with powder for some spf... My only problem was it looked very cakey/powdery when artist applied powder (Golden glow)...and I didn't care for that... It made it look like I was wearing a lot of makeup. Also I kinda have very oily skin and after 1~2 hr I could feel the oil mixing with foundation/powder and becoming sticky...I guess I should give a try it with oil control primer. But foundation by itself is great! It is just like second skin! No false advertisement there.

A great product

5/5
I recently got this product and I must say I love it! It is completely oil free, gives the skin an amazing texture and works wonders with the Pure Pressed base.

YOWZA!

5/5
Love this liquid. It comes out like a mousse & spreads easily. You may notice some tiny granular-looking bits at first, but they will blend in & disappear as you smooth the foundation with the Blending Brush, your fingers, or the Flocked Sponge. I mix one squirt of Warm Sienna & 1 or 2 (depending on level of coverage i want) of Light Beige. My skin has a bit of underlying ruddiness, so the Warm Sienna blocks that. Even though my complexion is more peachy than cool, the Light Beige works well for me. If you've used Shaklee Minerelles in the past, & wore Beige as i did, JI's Light Beige will probably work for you, too :)

WOW!!!

5/5
This is the most wonderful foundation I have ever used! I have "mature" skin, but this foundation takes away the years!

WOW

5/5
I did not have high hopes because I have never bought a foundation that I actually love, just tolerated. This stuff is totally different. I have freckles, and a reddish skin tone and this stuff covers it all. It feels awesome when you put it on, and then feels like you have nothing on at all. I have received compliments on my "skin", not my makeup! And this stuff stays on all day! Very good if you have oily skin too. You look dewy, not oily! Love it!

LOVE IT!!

5/5
it goes on smoothly & with just the right amount of coverage- not heavy or cakey. I love how it stays fresh looking all day too.

Light-weight powerhouse

5/5
I'm not sure how such a light-weight foundation provides such awesome coverage. Perfect for evening out skin tone. I love this product and use it every day - not sure how I lived without it. Approaching 40, I need make-up with that forgives some of my flaws -- this product not only forgives them, but helps conceal them. LOVE IT.

My skin loves me now

5/5
Thank you, Jane! You have made this total product junkie a happy and loyal customer, which is saying a lot for me. I was just about to return this yesterday after not getting similar effects to the Jane PurePressed Base that I love so much and was beginning to regret switching. I wanted to try the liquid version in order to get a slightly dewier and glowy look, but instead I was getting an oilier and greasy look. Needless to say I have oily skin, but only on my t-zone, and I am extremely prone to hormonal acne. Then finally I decided to give it one more shot today, but this time I didn't apply any foundation to my t-zone--I simply used Absence and a setting powder in this oily area. And, voila! My face has looked flawless all day. In order to achieve beautiful results I think it's crucial to use a good primer and setting powder (I recommend the Laura Mercier line--I have found that setting with PurePressed Base is just too much coverage and looks cakey). Otherwise you are likely going to be splotchy. But combined with other products this will give you gorgeous and healthy-looking skin, which is a godsend for women like me who were not naturally born with it. After a little trial and error, 5 stars. :)

The Best!

5/5
I've been using this product for 6 years now and I love that it's actually good for your skin! It's rated as one of the safest foundations by the Skin Deep Cosmetic Database. I recently had to switch shades and had a bit of trouble at first trying to find my perfect color, but with the help of one of the personal shoppers I was able to successfully do a color match over the phone. They have a color match guarantee, so you can't go wrong! Also, I wear the Pressed Powder over the Liquid Minerals and it looks amazing!!

Great News for Ladies with Acne Problems!

4/5
I've used Jane's liquid makeup now for about a year, and I am so happy that it helps my acne-prone skin. Other liquid foundations in stores tend to break me out, so I had to stay with Jane. You simply must smooth it a little on the back of your other hand before applying directly to the face. It will be much smoother and easier. A little goes a long way even though it really isn't about covering all your flaws. Put this great stuff on first and then go over your face with my favorite Jane Iredale product, Disappear (which is almost like a medicine to zap zits), and then powder sparingly with Amazing Base. It really makes you look like one smooth chickadee!

awesome

5/5
I did not think anything could be the ease, coverage or feel of the pressed powder foundation but I think this may be my new favorite. I changed because my skin was becoming dry and looking powdery I could have used the setting spay but thought I would give this a try. It is light, natural, blendable and best part of all buildable for my rosecea on my cheeks and nose area. I look fresh all day and night without worry. I almost hated taking it off last night it still looked so good.

Nice, nice, nice foundation

5/5
At last - mineral make up that has such a beautiful light texture and keeps my skin soft all day. Use just a little - it will last a long time. I use the Handi brush to apply. Very lovely!

Finally

5/5
I have looked for years for a foundation that actually covers but looks fresh, clean and natural. This foundation fits the bill. If you don't like to look "made-up" this is the product for you. I rarely touch up throughout the day and sometimes do not even add powder for a lighter look.

Nice and light

5/5
This foundation pumps out nicely almost with air injected and is such a beautiful light texture - not at all heavy. A little goes a long way. It leaves my skin looking smooth and natural and I use a light touch of the Pure Pressed minerals with the Handi brush to finish out the look - try this, you will like the look. The Natural is a mix with beads of varying colors - the Bisque is lighter and all one color beads. I have both and use a squeeze of each and mix. Lovely!
