Great for a qucik fix
I love this powder! When I don't feel like putting on the BB cream I use this powder! I like it because I feel like I have a natural look without putting a lot of makeup on.
loved it but now disappointed
I have been using the pressed powder, quad bronzer and lip liner for the last 7 years. I have loved the products and told my girlfriends how great the products feel and look. I also love the fact the ingredients are not so "artificial". I recently bought my sun glow pressed powder (which I wear alllll the time) and it is was cracked when I opened it. It is now in a million little pieces and impossible to use without losing a whole chunk of the powder. I love the product but wondering if something has changed- should I use something else? I don't mind spending the money if the quality remains the same...otherwise it is a waste!
Thank you for your loyalty and for spreading the word about jane iredale! We're sorry your powder arrived cracked. Something must have happened to it in shipment and we can assure you our high quality standards have remained the same. This product hasn't changed in any way and we'd like to get a replacement so you can start fresh. If you're interested, please contact our Personal Shoppers at 877-869-9420 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you Jane Iredale!
I love this product but was having trouble finding a good color. I called customer service, talked it over with them, and two days later I had two samples to choose from! Both the colors were really close, but one was a near perfect match. I can't wait until my full sized order comes. Thank you!!
I really enjoy this foundation!
I really do enjoy this foundation! I love the coverage and it doesn't feel candy at all! My only concern is that when I went in to get matched they told me I was warm silk. However, I have cool undertones so I'm concerned that its to yellow for. I have make up in the fast that I gave up on because they are to yellow. Do you think I should go for a cool undertone and see how that does? And if I'm warm silk what would be the equalvent with cool undertones?
We’re glad you love it! We think you should try Light Beige, which is a cool shade or a neutral shade, like Radiant.
I having been struggling with acne for a while and my dermatologist recommended switching to Jane Iredale makeup. I was excited to try this after reading such great reviews. But I have to say I have been extremely disappointed with the prodcuts I purchased. I spent about $200 on my purchase and my skin looks worse now than when I was wearing $10 cover girl. I have been back to the salon where I purchased the items twice now and I can't find anything that works. I've had a professional do the color match and show me how to apply the makeup. Yet, the color is still wrong and the makeup does not look good after the first hour of wearing it as it makes my skin extremely oily and disgusting. I am so disappointed that Jane does not have some sort of satisfaction guarantee. Obviously this makeup does not work for everyone. The only suggestion I am given is to keep spending more money on more products to try and correct the ones that are not working. After having already spent a significant amount of money on products that I am embarassed to wear, this does not seem like a valid option.
We are so sorry about your experience and we’re so glad you contacted us. Hopefully, we can help! With oily skin, you might see some shininess appear throughout the. Using an oil controlling primer like Absence can help this. And we are confident we can find the correct shade for your complexion. But if you are simply unhappy with your purchase, we want to find a way to help make it right. Please contact our Personal Shoppers for assistance and advice at 877-869-9420 or email@example.com
I've started using this foundation recently and really love the easy flawless blending and perfect coverage for the redness around my nose that nothing else covers. At first I tried "bisque" after using the shade-finder, instinctively selecting the dark haired and fair skinned reference that looked the most like me-- ultimately this was too light, making me look as my husband pointed out "a little bit like a geisha." I next tried "warm silk," again choosing a warm tone because of the recommendation for "redness" (around my nose)but I am a cool tone so this too might not be the ideal shade. Initially I felt the makeup accentuated my pores but with the application of a primer this was largely fixed. A problem for me though is that each compact seems to be lasting for about two months. I don't wear an unusual amount of makeup, but this is the only product I'm using for all areas of my face. I love the easy one-stop application but the overhead of how quickly it runs out is too much effort especially since I've moved to Germany and it's harder/costlier to get. Maybe starting with a bb cream and finishing with just a light dusting of the foundation would help extend the life of a compact?
We are so happy to hear you have found a foundation you love! If you are still uncertain about the shade, please call us and we will help you find one that you feel sure is the right match. We normally find that a compact lasts about 3-4 months, so we’d like to ask a few questions: First, the right tool can make a world of difference. We recommend the Handi Brush. It will pick up the right amount of product and give you very even finish. Second, because our makeup has no fillers, a little goes a long way, and you need much less than with conventional makeup. Try starting with one thin layer and see if that’s enough for you. You can build full coverage by applying more layers. Glow Time BB Cream or Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer might help to extend the life of your powder foundation, because you will not need to apply much to achieve full coverage. Also, you might like to take a look at the application video by clicking on the video tab next to the product image. If you have more questions please contact our Personal Shoppers at 877-869-9420 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
My skin has never looked better!! I can even sleep with this on (although I usually don't) and still wake up with clear skin! This stuff is amazing and will never clog pores!! I'll never use anything else! Love my Iredale!
I bough this foundation which was recommended by my dermatologist. I loved it since day 1! Got lots of compliments from people and I was surprised because I didn't even get the right shade! I got the caramel, so I also want to know what shade I need to get so that it's lighter? The caramel is a bit too dark for me.
Wow, it’s great to hear you’re receiving compliments, and we think you should try Riviera! If you’d like to give it a try or if you need help with an exchange, please feel free to contact our Personal Shoppers at 877-869-9420 or email@example.com.
BEST MAKEUP EVER
I have been using JI pressed powder for about 7 years now and I love love love it. I like that it looks natural, my face never looks like it is caked with makeup. I love how although it lasts all day I can still easily remove it when I want and it leaves my skin feeling smooth. It really is the best makeup ever. I use the neutral caramel shade in the winter :)
Can you tell me what one shade lighter than Latte would be? I find in the winter I need to go a little lighter.
One shade lighter than Latte is Golden Glow!
I was never a fan of mineral foundation until I tried Pure Pressed in Golden Glow. I used Estee Lauder and MAC before but felt like I looked like I had "caked on" makeup and it would not cover up especially after my morning workout (Crossfit). This foundation covers up even the most extreme redness without looking like I'm wearing too much. My skin has improved - I believe b/c the ingredients of this foundation are not clogging my pores. Best of all, Jane Iredale products are cruelty-free. No animals had to suffer for my beauty product. I am so glad I found JI products. Love everything I've tried so far. BTW, customer service is amazing too. No automated system answering my questions, life person every time w/out a long wait.
By far the best make-up I've ever used and I will never use anything else. I rarely, if ever, rate products but since JI has exceeded my expectations I had to comment on it. My skin is oily but the Purepressed mineral foundation holds up beautifully. Highly recommend this product!
I am so impressed with Jane Iredale pressed powder! The make up is wonderful for my skin. I have sensitive African American skin and this is the only make up that will do right for me! Trust me, I have tried plenty. Specialist Elizabeth is very kind, patient, and knowledgeable about skin care. She helped me figured out what was PERFECT for me. The customer service is second to none. I used to be impressed with Walmart's customer service but after encounter with Elizabeth on the Service line, Jane Iredale is number #1! Also, I look really cute too! Thanks a bunch!
LOVE It! Lasts a long time!
I started using this powder last fall (2012). The place where I get skin procedures done sells it. They run a sale in Nov, and I decided to try it. I have been wearing Clinique for 20 yrs. I have been unable to wear any other makeup. Before buying this JI makeup, they let me try it every time I had a microderm. I LOVED it! I bought this pressed powder and the blush. The pressed powder lasted me from November 2012 until July 2013. The blush I bought, I am still using!!! I ordered another one, but I wont even need to use it until mid winter! This pressed powder though, lasted me for 8 months! Just make sure you use the big kabookie brush (or whatever it is called..lol) I do still use my Clinique liquid base, BUT, with this powder, even my base lasts longer because the makeup doesnt fade throughout the day. I have very pale skin, and keeping makeup all day is a challenge. You will love this!
Love this powder
I have tried other mineral makeups that have made my pores look HUGE! This does not do that at all and stays on really well. I love the coverage but I do like to use it over the BB cream. Customer service was super helpful with guiding me to my correct shade. I will plan on purchasing this again :)
Jane Iredale's PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation is the best. It covers well, it does not dry out my skin, and I can easily take it with me wherever I go for easy touch ups.
I recently started using Jane Iredale products. I am very pleased with coverage and all day wear of product
About Purepressed Base Mineral Foudation
I want to buy this product because I longed for its appearance in Romania and I want to know if it's necessary to apply a moisturizer cream before. I have a normal skin. Or should I buy another type of foundation from Jane Iredale? Thank You!
We're excited you'd like to try our foundation! We always recommend applying makeup to clean and well moisturized skin. You can use a moisturizer of your choice with any of our foundations, including PurePressed Base. If you're not sure which foundation is best for you, feel free to take our quick foundation quiz (http://shadefinder.janeiredale.com/) or contact a Personal Shopper at 877-869-9420 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have been using Jane Iredale cosmetics for a little over a year, and I love them!. I am 57, and her formulations keep me looking my best. I use this pressed mineral powder in the T zone area, after lightly blotting. I set it with mist, and it just looks better as the day goes on, with just occasional blotting.
I have oily/acne prone skin and Jane Iredale's Mineral Foundation is the only makeup I will use! For years I have been using her line and have had great results. I recommend this product to all my friends & family.
PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation
I absolutely adore this foundation!!!! I've been using this one or Liquid Minerals for nearly 10 years and these products remain consistently fabulous providing excellent coverage that's healthy for my skin
I've always had trouble finding the right tone for my skin, but the Bisque colour is an exact match! Wonderfully light and smooth with amazing coverage. Definitely worth the investment. I have problem skin and this product covers blemishes but doesn't hinder healing. I am IN LOVE with this product!!!
Great for Sensitive Skin
This is by far the best foundation I have ever used. My skin is prone to break out and most products seem to make it worse. I don't even feel like I'm wearing makeup when I have this on yet the coverage is so good my acne scars are hidden. Thank You JI for such a wonderful product I'm a customer for life.
Totally worth it
I definitely recommend this foundation. This product is great. It goes on easily and provides great coverage all day.
A mineral makeup that covers imperfections, redness - and lasts all day. Unlike with other foundations I have used, my skin is not blotchy by dinner time. Does not settle in fine lines, and is the perfect color match. Shout out to my husband who picked this up for me when he was in the States (we are posted overseas). I will definitely be a repeat customer.
Poor Color Ranges
While Jane Iredale's product line is by far one of the best I've seen, and I'm very pleased -- I am disappointed in her lack of shades (at least in PurePressed powders) available for women of color. She has a plethora of shades catering to fair skinned women, but literally only two or three shades for darker skin tones (ie. African American women). I use a variety of Jane's products, but ended up being quit disenchanted when I couldn't find a foundation match at all for my skin (I had a consultation). I had to go elsewhere for a powder/foundation, when I really wanted to stay with Jane. All in all, Jane is great and I'd readily endorse her products anytime, but I'd love to see her tackle the challenge of providing a wider selection of colors for African American women/women of color......because women of this world come in all shades. My search continues.

PurePressed: am I doing it right?
I love the color and the ingredient list. However, I don't like the coverage. Am I the only one who thinks the coverage is too light? How can I increase the coverage without using another foundation? My skin is so sensitive, I try to minimize the number of products I put on it.
If you'd like full coverage with PurePressed Base, we recommend applying it with the Flocked Sponge. The way to do this is load the sponge with powder and gently press the powder onto your skin while rolling the sponge back and forth; repeat this all over the face. Another option is to use the Handi Brush and apply multiple layers. We understand that you want to limit the number of products you're using, but if you'd like to apply layers, the Hydration Sprays really help with creating a natural finish.
I was so excited to find this and, then disappointed. I have used JI liquid minerals for years and ordered the same color in the Purepressed Base. When I applied it my husband said I looked ghostly, not quite the reaction I was hoping for. I am kicking myself now for not going to a department store and trying samples first. I just expected the same result as the colors were the same.
Oh no, we're sorry the PurePressed Base shade you have is too light! The great news is that our Personal Shoppers will gladly help you find your match and offer you a replacement for the correct shade. When you have a moment, please contact them at 877-869-9420 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have been using this foundation for years. I have used a variety of colors as I made an effort to find the "right" color. I have (no joke) warm sienna, golden glow and amber in my drawer with a back-up amber still in its package(stupid auto refill). I am struggling with it. I love the coverage but I notice the need for multiple colors and they change as the day wears. Also, it winds up caking in creases as well and the worst is I wind up getting really itchy if I sweat. I don't want to part with it but I need to know what I am doing wrong or if I am using the wrong product for my needs. I am so frustrated mostly because I am lost and also because I have so much product that I am wasting. Help!
Don't worry, we're here to help! If you find one of the shades you mentioned works well when you first put it on, but changes color throughout the day, then we recommend combining your powder with Absence Oil Control Primer. Our skin's natural oil production can contribute to color change and Absence will help prevent this! To prevent caking, it's best to apply your foundation to clean well moisturized skin and the correct application of the powder can also affect the appearance. Feel free to visit the product page and then click on the 'video' tab to view an application video. If you feel you’d like to discuss your shade options or you're just ready to try something new, our Personal Shoppers will be more than happy to help! You can contact them at 877-869-9420 or email@example.com.
Absolute favorite foundation- hands down! Feels great on your skin, and looks absolutely flawless especially when used with the hydration sprays! The only problem I'm having is the Algae Extract REALLY aggravates my acne and makes me break out (a few of my friends have the same exact problem with JI!) I will continue to use this product no matter what because the ingredients are SO clean BUT.... JI please please please make a pressed powder for us acne-prone girls!!!! Take out that Algae Extract and it will be 10/10 stars!!!!!!!! :)
PS: would Absence help keep the algae extract from seeping into my pores? Maybe that'll help ;)
Overall the best makeup line EVER!
We’re glad PurePressed Base is your favorite! The algae extract in PurePressed Base and other products is included because of its amazing skin care benefits that nourish, soothe and protect all skin types, including acneic. We’re sorry this may be causing a sensitivity and if you can (we know it’s hard!) we recommend you go without PurePressed Base for a few days to see if you notice an improvement in your skin condition. Absence Oil Control Primer can improve the performance of PurePressed Base, and the benefits from the foundation will still be effective.
Simply the best
As a skin cancer "survivor," I wish I'd learned about JI makeup much sooner. Thankfully, I found it in my surgeon's office as well as at my favorite spas. This powder foundation makes my skin look so much more even, and the SPF 20 makes me feel more secure about the health of my skin. After I began using it for several weeks, I noticed an overall improvement in the tone and condition of my skin. To avoid a chalky look, I use the Pommisst spray -- it smells wonderful and gives the makeup a fresher look!
Feels amazing, wishing for a perfect match.
I have yet to find a perfect match for my skin :( The BB cream in no 5 works great for me. I have used Bisque and Warm Sienna, lighter in the center of my face and darker on the outer part. Bisque is good for the winter months. It is VERY light though, especially in pictures I look ghostly. Warm Sienna is too light, or rather not colored enough for the summer months and overall. It would need a tad more pigment to suit me and not look like it just lightens my face. Golden glow is good as a slight contour, but too dark for overall color. I have mixed all of them, with good results but don't want to buy all three and keep mixing them, too much of an effort :) All other colors look either ashy (too pink), or muddy (too much brown, like Radiant). I try to make them work, I have to use the BB cream as well because of my acne, I don't find this covers well enough the spots. It doesn't make me break out more, though, I just have hormonal acne after quitting birth control pills.
We’re glad you’ve been experimenting and enjoying these products! BB5 matches best with Warm Sienna, and if you find Warm Sienna just a tad too light, we recommend you add a little depth by applying a bronzer. If you’d like to discuss other options, please feel free to contact our Personal Shoppers at 877-869-9420 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another Jane Miracle
This was the first product in Jane's line that I tried. Foundation is just that, it's the start to a look for the day. My shade is Amber, matches perfectly, feels clean, offers a nice, natural coverage, and unlike another well known mineral powder foundation that I used in the past, the finish and color stays true all day! No turning orangey or darker. This will always be in my makeup kit!
best foundation mineral or not!
This mineral foundation has been the only foundation that really works for my skin. I have literally tried ALL the brands believing the hype and none of the other brands have worked for me. I have really fair skin with golden undertones rather than pink, so its tricky to find a shade that really matches my skin. I took a leap of faith by purchasing Bisque, thinking it would end up like all the others I've tried but crossing my fingers that it would actually work. Well I was wonderfully and happyily surprised! It was such a relief having a makeup that literally does it all, it covers well, matches my skin, has not irritated my skin once, and lasts all day even through the hot summer months. Not to mention it never feels like im wearing a mask. This make up is awesome and worth every penny! Don't be afriad to take leap!
Jane Iredale products are the best! I have always bought high end products for my facial powders and this one is the best, IMO. Feels great on the skin, matches perfectly, and I do not use any other foundation with this powder. Not needed. I love it!
pure pressed base ivory
i love the texture and the coverage of this product it is absolutely amazing so natural looking,long lasting, and not hard to apply.i purchased this in a salon in ireland and am very fair sadly i was advised towards the wrong colour.the ivory is just way too pale i actually look ill wearing this colour.i can no longer wear the product because of the poor colour match.i am angry at myself for spending 56 euros on the wrong colour.i would try jane iredale again the products are actually good for your skin but i just wish they provided samples its frustrating to find a great product and spend so much on the wrong colour.
We're glad you enjoy PurePressed Base and are sorry that Ivory isn't your match! We'll contact you privately to recommend a more suitable shade and arrange a replacement.
I have to say that this company and the staff are the best I have ever encountered. Thanks to them I was able to easily find products that match my skin tone and get me on my way to experiencing all the great things Jane Iredale has to offer. I love the pure pressed base and I spritz with d20 every time. I don't have that orange peel like skin and it doesn't make dry skin look worse. I am going to try the absence primer underneath it soon.
This pure pressed base foundation is everything they say it is. It looks good on even my dry skin which is hard to accomplish. You have to smooth it on in a downward motion using the brush or spondge. I couldn't wear the bare minerals because the buffing in circular motions produces alot of micro exfoliation on the skin and causes any dry patches to stick up and catch the minerals.
Great Pressed Powder!!!
I love this product, I first tried it out in Latte and it turned out to be too dark. I sent an email to see if theirs anything I could do, and Katelyn emailed me back right away and was so helful!!! I have to say I am a Jane Iredale customer for life!! Thank you for the great customer service.
Finally I'm in love!
I have extremely acne prone sensitive skin. This is the main reason why I choose Jane Iredale. MAC made me break out like crazy and any other makeup brand that I tried did the same as well, even if it claimed to be "oil-free". When I tried Jane Iredale, I not only loved the makeup and the way it made my skin "glow" but I also loved the way my skin reacted to it. I no longer have breakouts from using makeup/foundation and it is all thanks to Jane Iredale! I highly recommend this makeup for any skin type! The price is worth it!
Best makeup ever
I'll start off by saying while I was given the wrong color it is still the most impressive makeup I ever used. I bought the starter kit. It comes with pure pressed base in it. This makeup does not settle in my pores and make them look worst. I use the d2o hydration spray they sell to go with this product and I look so smooth.. feels so soothing to skin but covers very well. I got the wrong shade in this but I went back and bought the bb cream in my color and just use my pressed base to warm up my skin around the cheeks. I only have one place that I know of where I can by jane iredale so I don't want to mess that up. I want feel comfortable shopping there forever. jane girl for life now.
Wow, we're so glad you found us! We'd love to help you find your match, and we'll message you privately. Also please know that we're happy to work with you and your local retail location if a return is necessary. We want you to be extra happy!
I "graduated" to Jane Iredale after several years of using Bare Minerals. This provides more coverage, but still looks completely natural, and it's far less messy than loose powder. The Radiant shade is perfect for my medium skin.
After reading great reviews for this product, I went to the nearest spa to buy it. I have a yellow undertone and the girl said latte would be best. But it looks too dark and you cant return the product.I have also found that my skin has been getting dry and peeling, I've never had this problem before.
If Latte looks a little too dark and you like its warm undertones, try Golden Glow which is a shade lighter! Since you mentioned a change in your skin condition, you may want to try patch testing the product or any other new products that you may be using. Please feel free to contact our Personal Shoppers to arrange an exchange either through shop.janeiredale.com or if you prefer, your local retail location. You can reach them at 877-869-9420 or email@example.com.
Best for your Skin!
I love Jane Iredale makeup and have to say the PurePressed Mineral Foundation has been the best product for my sensitive skin. It provides excellent coverage and doesn't make my face look blotchy or too oily. I have friends who have frequently asked what I use and though it's a little more pricey it's definitely worth it when it comes to my skin. I have tried other mineral foundations and powders and this is by far the best!
Not Sure Where to Start
I have been using Bare Minerals and would really like to try this make-up but not sure where to start. I wear fairly light in the Bare Minerals. I am not sure if I am a cool, warm, neutral or where I would fit in the fair, light or light/med tones. I have brown hair, brown eyes and rather light skin. Any help on what shade foundation may work for me would be appreciated.

Great for Sensitive Skin!
Having such a light skin tone coupled with sensitive skin I have always had issues with makeup. This is the first powder I have ever used that doesn't cause me to break out! It covers so smoothly and matches my skin tone perfectly. When I do get blemishes, it completely covers them without looking clumpy. Thanks Jane for making me feel beautiful!
Ive been wearing this foundation for over ten years, and absolutely love it. I have a global olive skin tone that is very hard to match and Jane has done it. True staying power, natural, flawless, and great for your skin what more could you ask for. I am in my mid 30's and get complimented all the time. Highly recommend!
Base Mineral Foundation
I use the warm silk foundation. I covers great yet I don't look like makeup is caked on. I have been using Jane Iredale since 2009 and would use nothing else.
Love, Love, Love this product. Best foundation I have ever tried/used, hands down. Customer for life! It's only taken me 15 years to find it :) Coverage is amazing, lasts all day, leaves my skin glowing, looks/feels natural and the best part is you can feel it's good for your skin. Very impressed!
I love this foundation. It does a great job covering without feeling heavy. In fact, you can't even tell it is there. The best part is that is doesn't clog pours or cause break outs. I love it!
New favorite product!!
I absolutely love this pure pressed foundation so much I switched from using foundation to using powder! I will never use anything else. My only concern is the color; I was color matched with golden glow is an absolute perfect color but would oxidize later and look ashy. I tried the warm sienna-- in combination with golden glow and it looked great! Now I am out of golden glow and only use warm sienna. I want to use only one shade-- the right shade for my skin! I set my makeup with the hydration mist which I, also love!! The place I purchased this from refuses to exchange it for the right shade :( I am dissatisfied with the customer service I have received. I am however, now a forever Jane Iredale client and wish I discovered this line many many years ago!!!
We’re glad you discovered us too! We’d be happy to help you with an exchange either through a local retail location or shop.janeiredale.com, whichever way is most convenient for you. We’ll contact you privately to make it right!
I love this makeup, it does provide awesome coverage. However, did anyone else experience breakouts? I am thinking its the algae extract. Its an ingredient I do not think was in any other makeup I've used before. I have been using this now for four weeks and have experienced a lot of breakouts. Just interested in knowing if anyone else did? If your skin doesn't break out, this makeup is the best. Thank you.
We’re sorry to hear you’ve had a reaction! All of our products go through rigorous sensitivity testing and we eliminate the use of known sensitizers to reduce the likelihood of a sensitivity. With that said, anyone can have a sensitivity to anything, so it’s difficult to figure out what exactly is causing a sensitivity. We recommend taking a break from the powder to see how your skin responds.
Awesome Foundation but wrong color
This is the best power formula foundation I've tried! My complexion looks flawless all day. I apply after i moisturize with a brush and set with spray. However, the sales associate at the spa thAt I purchased from color matched me to warm sienna which is a little too light. i guess i wasnt able to distinguish that at that time because of the bad lighting. i went back to exchange for a shade darker (golden glow) but was told I that I could not exchange the warm sienna because they do not do exchanges. The spa manager said I had to purchase the golden glow, even though the sales person color matched me wrong! I also purchased the active light concealer from this spa which was defective (product did not come out from the pen) and they refused to exchange that as well. Pretty bad customer service and return/exchange policy if you ask me...and I won't be purchasing any products from that spa anymore.
We’re sorry Warm Sienna is too light for you, you are right, good lighting is an important element to a successful color match! We want you to be completely in love with your makeup, and are happy to find a location near you that will give you an exchange, or send you one right from shop.janeiredale.com, whichever you prefer. We’ll contact you privately to get you the right shade in the way that is easiest for you!
I got both the pure pressed and amazing loose poweder. And i am undecided which i love more.
People tell me that the pure pressed coverage is better but i dont quite know how to use it. I have large pores with imperfections such as blemishes. The brush doesnt quite cut it for me as it doesnt really conceal much though i know it should be! Should i be using the flocked sponge or is my color wrong? I got the Ivory but should i be using a darker color? Or perhaps in conjunction with the dream tint?? Any advice is much appreciated.
Sounds like you need a consultation, I will be contacting you directly to set something up!
I'm not that into makeup. But, I like to use good products, so I partake a bit. I had been having persistent, never before experienced, acne/rash like breakouts on my forehead and face for about a year.
I've been using the purepressed powder for a little over a week now and my weird face rash has almost completely disappeared. I'm not saying this necessarily cleared it up, nor am I claiming it is a substitute for a dermatologist. But, I felt it worth noting and sharing.
The non-chemical sunscreens seem to be working well, too. I'm so grateful for that, as I have such fair, sensitive skin.
I really feel like my skin improves each time I wear this powder.
love but wish..
I love JI but could not use the pressed mineral powder because of the algae extract..wish they would take that ingredient out. I have to use the loose mineral makeup but would love to use the pressed powder because it gave more of a matte finish that I prefer.
The purepressed base mineral powder looks great, except on the forehead area where I have some fine lines. It seems to crease into these lines and cause them to become more noticeable. I've tried the hydration spray but no luck! On the plus side, this product is quite economical. It lasts quite a while if you use the handi brush and the option of purchasing refills is great!
We're so glad you are mostly happy with our PurePressed Base. Let's try to fix the creasing on your forehead - two things: 1. Be sure your skin is well moisturized. 2. A Little goes a long way; see if you get enough coverage from one thin layer, if not, spritz with hydration spray and add another thin layer. Let us know how this works for you!
BEST mineral powders!
I never wore foundation until I discovered JI about 6 years ago, and now I'll never wear anything else. I started out using the pressed base, in Radiant, which provided light, natural-looking coverage, and a perfect color match for my skin. I love the pressed base because it's less messy than the loose, but have since switched to the loose because my skin was starting to look too "powdery" with this (sad result of aging!). I still occasionally switch back to using this one. My skin loves either base and I think it has improved my skin over the years. The Handi brush is great and perfect for using with this. And a shout-out to JI for providing excellent customer service!
Fantastic for my sensitive skin
I have sensitive, combination skin & had been using another expensive foundation (Estee Lauder Double Wear) for years but decided to try this after seeing it at my dermatologist's office. I'm so happy I made the switch, after 2 months of using this my skin looks so much better- is more flawless, less clogged pores & natural looking as well as it feels very natural for a foundation. I use the flocked sponge to apply & then sweep a makeup brush I already owned over once to remove the excess. Jane Iredale, please don't ever discontinue this lovely powder!
MOST AMAZING PRODUCT ON THE MARKET
I am a teenager with a low income but i love makeup beyond belief i have tried, every single foundation/concealer/powder out on the market i saved up some money to buy this product. when i go it in the mail i was so exited, honestly this is the best product on the market for all skin types im light beige and it adjusts to my skin. I am very prone to break outs and i have acne, honestly i can wear this powder by itself or put it with the foundation for a overall FLAWLESS look. what im trying to get to is you NEED to buy this product and try it for yourself. And goodness the costumer service is perfect!thank you JI for making such great products.
Pure Pressed in "Maple"
I am a licensed Aesthetician and I have been using Jane Iredale's impressive skin care makeup for over 12 years. I am extremely picky about my makeup application being beyond flawless with semi-matte / semi- dewy results that is meticulously healthy and clean for my skin. These products are so pure ~ you could eat them. I even work out with a heavy sweat and they never make me break out and I am very acne prone. As a woman with ethnic skin, it has been a challenge to find a perfect match but ever since Iredale came out with her Global Colors - I have been so gratified with a perfect match and flawless coverage. Her pure pressed compact in "Maple" is truly God send and I pray that she never discontinues this shade as I would be devastated. I always mist the D20 on top - you must do this after applying your minerals and i guarantee your skin will glow and your minerals will undeniably blend seamlessly as if it were second skin! God bless you all... :)
This is the Best!
I've been wearing JI makeup for more than 6yrs now. I'm a medium dark toned African-American with very oily skin. I use Murad cleansing products to control the oil and JI chestnut for makeup. I receive compliments on my makeup ALL the time!! I'm sold on JI products and glad to see more makeup colors for darker skin tones!!
Simply the Best!!
When i got reccomeded this makeup i wasnt sold as i like a lot of coverage on my face and i didnt think that it would cut it for me. how wrong was i? i love this makeup so much it is so natural while having a great coverage aswell. simply better than anything else i have ever had!
Broke me out
I have verrry acne prone skin. Was recommended this by a dermatologist. Honestly, everything about this product is simply amazing except for the algae extract, which I know was the cause of my breakouts. Wish you guys would take that ingredient out and add one that wasn't comedogenic!
As a former user of another mineral foundation line, I found Pure Pressed a far superior product in ease of application and coverage. The level of coverage is easier to control and more natural looking - not powdery. The color selections are great and natural looking.
Use this product daily. It lasts me a very long time before I need to reorder. I set it with a hydration mist and it lasts all day with no caky look. I usually use the warm silk for my fair skin but have started using Amber over the summer and absolutely love it. I used jane iredale brushes to apply and it works wonderfully.
My favorite makeup
I switched to this foundation from Bare Minerals about 3 years ago and I have to say this is the best foundation I have ever used. It gives great coverage without caking or drying and looks beautiful. It is so light and easy to use and I just love it.
wow this product is very good product ,can control my face over oil.
pretty, but doesn't last
I like the ease of use and the finish of this makeup - it blends well and looks natural. However, I have oily skin and within an hour of application my whole face looks greasy. I've had much better luck with loose setting powders for oil control. Am I applying it wrong? I don't want to give up on it, but the oil breakthrough is ruining the finish. Any tips?
Please feel free to click the video tab next to the product on our Web site to watch an application video! For oily complexions, we recommend coupling PurePressed Base with an oil control product like Beyond Matte or Absence Oil Control Primer. If you have any questions about our oil control products call 877-869-9420, and a Personal Shopper will be glad to help you!
Exceeded my expectations!
This is the best mineral foundation powder! I use it in the color latte along with disappear to cover my acne and acne scarring and it works like a charm! I love the packaging too! Jane Iredale is the best natural makeup company on the market. I love, love love their products! Purepressed base is the perfect natural looking powder with medium coverage. Highly recommended!
BEST foundation ever used!
I remember the day I used this for the first time - FINALLY a product that matched my skin tone and covered my flaws without making me feel guilty to wearing layers of oily gunk!
When I discovered this, I was still in my early 20s and breaking out regularly. Several years later, I'm still using this and find that I use significantly less with no breakouts to hide. Golden Glow is the perfect match for my skin year-round, and for the first in my life, I get compliments on my glowing skin.
This is easier to apply than Bare Minerals, a better color match, more SPF protection, and less hassle because the minerals are pressed. For me, these reasons out-weigh the additional cost. This is JI's best product, hands down.
I have been a Bare Minerals user for number of years. I heard how great Jane Iredale is and decided to try it. I used the purePressed in Golden Glow for the first time today. I am an instant convert. The application is easy, the look is flawless and I will never use Bare Minerals or any other mineral foundation again. Just wish there was better accessibility to the products before I buy. It would be nice to see the products live instead of on a website.
Best Foundation yet!
I will never use a different foundation again! It has great natural coverage, it's light weight, and it smells amazing! Best of all, it doesn't irritate or cause my skin to break out. I wore this to an indoor pool party and I got splashed and it was very humid there. After a few hours, I still looked perfect! No more hunting for the "perfect foundation"-I found mine!
I have owned this product for almost 3 months now and I've never been someone to use a foundation at all never the less a powder one. I have a naturally oily complexion and this did just the trick!I love the matte finish it leaves and it really does have a beautiful glow to it.
I love this coverage!!
Thank you Jane Iredale! I am a massive massive JI fan, and this little product is the one that started it all off about 3 years ago. No matter what I do (exercise, teach, work, run), this foundation stays put. Best of all, it has full spf protection from our scorching Australian sun, and looks so natural when applied. I use Jane Iredale dream tint underneath, applied with the brush. What I love most about this beautiful product is that you can layer up or down for a more finished or more natural look, and it just wears all day long. I get so many comments about my skin, but what people are really commenting on is this wonderful, beautiful product - thank you Jane Iredale! :-)
I'm loving the Pure Pressed Base in the Warm Sienna shade. This is my second time around after trying Amber and Warm Silk. This shade has more of the corrective color of yellow which seems to even out my skin tone nicely. I've received many compliments on my "even skin tone" . Only I know its the makeup!!!!!!!!
Love the all day coverage and SPF 20. I use this over my Dream Tint with a spritz of the D2O and the coverage is superb!
Best stuff out there!
I have never liked putting makeup on my face. But I work with estiticians who are always on my case to take care of my skin. This power does that and is a sunblock all in one. I don't even feel it when I am wearing it and my boyfriend, who hates makeup also, doesn't even notice I wear it. I have been a Jane Iredale addict and love the customer service they offer they customers. <3!!
Great but color different than loose powder
I love jane iredale products so much.
I am an esthetician and I recommend it to every guest I have. It really helps to heal and enchance beauty of our skin.
I have used many products from concealers too blushes bronzers etc.
Most of the time I was purchasing amazing base in bisque. Recently i have decided to try the press powder in bisque . It seems like the press powder has slightly diferent color. It looks much lighter on my skin than amazing base. I do not know why?
I hope i can exchange it for the loose powder.
I also wanted to point out that it is just so beautifully packed when you purchase online.
The lavedner touch to the packaging is so lovely.
I love Jane Iredale
Hi there, It’s common for one to wear the same shade in both Amazing Base and PurePressed Base, however, there can be exceptions since they have different formulas and finishes.
Sensitive Skin? Use this!!!
I have had extreme allergies and sensitive all of my life. I have tried every "pure, for sensitive skin, hypo-allergetic, and mineral" make-up on the market. Every product has made me break-out, have red splotches, itch, and irritate my eyes. I was in my salon having my eyebrows and lips threaded. Yes, I turned red. The technician told me she would apply some powder, so I wouldn't appear so red. She applied Jane Iredale's PurePressed Base. This make-up was applied to skin that was newly exfoliated from the threading proceedure. As I left the salon, I thought, "any second now my face is going to be itchy, and I will want to claw at my skin." To my amazement, my skin remained calm. I wore the PurePressed Base that day with no adverse effects. I also found that I had great coverage all day and never looked red or splotchy from the salon proceedure. I ran back to my salon to purchase this powder and try some of Jane's other products. THIS IS THE BEST MAKE-UP! Truely the "Gold Standard." Try it. You will not be disappointed.
I've tried just about every high end foundation but never found one that didn't feels like plaster on my skin. It's quick to go on and feels light but gives good coverage. Have had a lot of comments of how good my skin has been looking. It also has great staying power have only had to blot once with some paper towards the end of the day
Love PurePressed® Base SPF 20
I recently discovered Jane Iredale at my primary M.D. office. I love my new primary doctor so her endorsement was important to me. Now, I love Jane Iredale! I use PurePressed Base and Disappear Concealer. I am prone to breakouts but have noticed improvement. It is hard to color match online so I hope it helps to know that 'Warm Silk' works well with my medium-light complexion, light brown hair (dark blond) and blue eyes.
I love this mineral foundation, it evens out my skin perfectly! Thanks!!!!
I've used this product for years, the only powdered foundation I've ever used. It's really good for my oily, acne prone skin and I really like that it has spf in it as well.
Doesn't clog my pores or irritate my sensitive skin. Feels light on my skin - perfect for those who hate the feeling of makeup on their face. Love it!
not sold on it!
Am I doing something wrong? I am not getting the flawless smooth look that other reviews are mentioning. I was turned onto JI by my sister, who loves purepressed base. Her skin is more oily and mine is dry. I really don't think this is the best for dry skin.I am using the hydration spray and a spa quality moisturizer. Love circle delete though.
Hi there, All of our foundations, including PurePressed Base, are perfectly suitable for a dry complexion. Another option to obtain more coverage, along with amazing skin care benefits like hydrating and nourishing the skin, is Liquid Minerals. Since Liquid Minerals has a dewy finish and provides sheer coverage, it can be used under PurePressed Base for both more coverage and for a more moist finish. If you’re unsure about the semi-matte finish of PurePressed Base, then you may like Amazing Base, which has a luminous finish and provides medium to full coverage. There are many ways to achieve your preferred finish and level of coverage!
I love the pure pressed. It provides incredible coverage and it looks like your natural skin. It also stays on all day. Thank you Jane for making this product!!
This foundation is worth every penny! I was a little reluctant to purchase this product because I don't ever use foundation or powder, but the pure pressed powder is amazing! It's like you're not wearing any make up at all... untill you look in the mirror and your skin is flawless :) I would recommend this to anyone and everyone :)
Best Foundation Ever!
I started using Jane Iredale a year ago. It is literally the best make up I have ever used - I'm hooked! I have problem skin and I break out a lot. Once I started using the pure pressed foundation I noticed a huge change in my skin. And when I do break out, it does an amazing job of covering up without looking cakey. My skin is glowing in pictures. So glad I found this foundation! I will never go back to anything else.
Found the right shade
I've been wearing Pressed Mineral Powder for some time. Because I've shopped on line I've had to guess at the correct shade. Well I've finally discovered the best shade ,Burnt Sienna, It has a hint of yellow and actually makes my skin look creamy. It duplicates Bobbie Brown's Warm Sand. I also wear Warm silk sometimes in the center area of my face.Great combo and great foundations.
I used another (well known ) mineral foundation for a LONG time, it was good but I switched to this one due to the purity of it and that it came in a pressed form and I LOVE IT so much better than my old brand. Will be my foundation for life.
Jane Iredale carries the best makeup products in the world. I grew up on that belief because it is the only mineral makeup that we trust and carry at the office where I work. :) I'm very thankful to my mother for supplying it, as our clients get the best and so do I! I'm only twenty, but I can't ever see myself buying any other brand. I've worn the Pure Pressed base in Radiant for at least three years and I will continue to do so! It hides my occasional breakouts and many people compliment it. It's amazing how well good skincare and Jane Iredale work together! Thank you so much Jane!
The Best Makeup
I have tried all kinds of makeup and this is by far the best line I have ever used!
I am a woman of color and have spent literally hundreds of dollars on different brands of mineral makeup.
The selection of colors is unparralled; It blends with my skin perfectly and has amazing shine control.
I have acne and since using I have noticed a signifigant improvement. Next on my list is the tinted moisturizer... I'm sold for life.
I love this product
I use this product and Im a huge lover of Shiseido's Sheer Matifing Compact and there powdery foundation I would say its deff compareble. i have lots of red in my skin and it truly looked like my skin was normal lol. Im turly thinking I may just use this for now on. It feels like there is nothing on your skin and I dont even have to reachtouch for hours. Really its that good.
so soft on the skin:) i would recommend this product without blinking an eye!!
covered my burned skin!
I have been a fan of PurePressed Base for years. Last weekend, I got a bad chemical burn from a facial hair remover cream. My skin was red, raw, sore all over. It was very painful. My skin looked terrible and I would not have been able to go to work without using foundation to cover it. I honestly didn't know if PPB would be able to cover the damage as I healed. Very gently, I applied PPB with my Handi Brush in layers. I was amazed at the beautiful coverage I got! I didn't even need to use concealer on the redder/rougher patches. I just layered a little extra product on those places. PPB and my Handi Brush got me through the week. Now, I am back to my regular lighter application of PPB. I remain a loyal fan of this mineral foundation. It works great for me under normal circumstances and did not let me down one bit during extenuating circumstances.
Natural Yet Great Coverage
I love PurePressed Base. Gives me an even looking Natural skin tone and covers really well. I have extremely oily skin and love the way this blends and doesn't crease or change color by the end of the day. Plus, it's light weight and never feels like I'm wearing foundation at all.
would give it 10 stars if i could!
i LOVE this foundation! i have used several mineral foundations in the past, but none compare to ji purepressed base! the coverage is incredible. i can't say enough wonderful things about this product! i am so happy to have found it. i also appreciate your prompt (and free) shipping! can't wait to try more ji products!
This foundation is great for my sensitive skin:)
I was desperately looking for something that didn't make me break out. After doing some research I cam across Jane Iredale and I couldn't be more happy!! Their natural ingredients don't harm my skin and the coverage is amazing! I am very pleased with this product and will buy the refill when this one runs out. Also, the costumer service is excellent. I got a color I didn't think was the right for me and they let me exchange it for another oner. Color match guaranteed =]
I am 120% satisfied with this product - I will go that far and say that it is a necessity in my world..I have been using it for about five years and I feel happy every time I use it. It never disappoints me. I have a red undertone in my skin, and it covers it up beautifully without giving me a "make up" face. I have been told that it does not look like I am wearing any make up when wearing this product..That must say it all.
I LOVE this foundation. I have tried literally hundreds of foundations, most of them being mineral, and never have I encountered anything even close to the quality, perfect finish, coverage, skincare benefits, and staying power of this makeup. I am an esthetician, and I have been using this makeup and recommending it for years, and won't use anything else on my face. Thank you so much Jane for making this wonderful product line!
This PurePressed Base is absolutely wonderful in every way!! It feels like soft velvet on the skin and blends perfectly. It is an excellent concealer, foundation, and finishing powder all in one amazing product!!! I have used another popular mineral powder for many years, but I can assure you, I had no idea what I was missing!! This is by far the BEST mineral powder available and is worth every penny!!! I have very sensitive skin with redness and this PurePressed Base makes my face look and feel flawless. Thank you so much for these top quality products!!!
Love, love, love!
I love this product! It goes on so smoothly and evenly. I have applied with both the sponge pad and a brush, and both work well. It covers nicely and NEVER breaks me out! With the range of colors available, you are sure to find one perfect for your skin!
This foundation is amazing! Full coverage and WEIGHTLESS!!! I am 24, brand new to makeup, this was easy and feels so light. Along with a good regimen, this make up did not break me out at all. Definitely recommend this for all types of skin.
When I go on vacation I know I don't need to put sunscreen on my face, because this product is so effective! Love it
You can wear this as a finishing powder or use it alone and it works equally well. It controls shine superbly without getting that clumpy over-powered look even after a mid-afternoon, touch-up application. Full coverage in a light formula. Just a superb product. I LOVE it and use it daily.
This is the best foundation I have ever used! And I've used alot of them.From drug stores to the top name brands.It covers very well,without looking made-up.I will never go back to any other make up. I love the eyeshadow too!!! thank you for making a great product!!
I love this foundation, it's lightweight but covers up my problem areas. I have acne problems and I feel like this is the best foundation to use to make sure I don't breakout. I have fair skin and Amber works best for me. LOVE IT!!
doesn't match undertones well
I purchased this product in butternut on my search for a natural make-up for african american skin. The coverage is fantastic but, it makes me look ashy. It doesn't match my undertone well at all. If that can be resolved this foundation would be beyond super!
We are so sorry your foundation isn't the right match for you. With 12 shades in our Global Range, featuring warm, cool and neutral undertones, there is a great chance we have a match for you. Please call a Personal Shopper at 1-877-869-9420 for advice, and to arrange an exchange.
The best Ive used!!
I was introduced to this make up a few years ago after long suffering with rosacea skin. It has been wonderful, It gives great coverage were needed and still looks natural without looking like a mask! Thank you Jane for this awsome product, its given me my confidence back! This is the only makeup I will ever buy!
I have used Jane Iredale's pressed powder in Golden Glow for years. I have light/medium olive Asian skin. My skin is acne prone, oily AND dry, and I have some flushing/redness and age spots. The pressed powder is perfect for my skin tone....and it does not exasperate any of my skin problems. I LOVE this product. If you need an additional concealer, I highly recommend their ZapHide in medium. It is so easy to use, glides on smoothly and creamily, really covers age spots, and is not messy at all. The combination of the Golden Glow pressed powder and ZapHide in medium, is PERFECT. Although the pressed powder might seem expensive, it lasts for months and months (over 4 months). And their refill compacts are such a great and affordable eco-option when it's time to get more!
Love The Coverage!
This pressed powder base is excellent! It has the light weight feel of a powder, but provides excellent coverage! I have tried other mineral powders, but they don't provide foundation like coverage. This product is the best, and I love the sun screen element!
Dedicated for 10+ Years
I'm your perfect case study on hard-to-match makeup (born jaundice, summer-peachy skin tone, borderline rosacea, blessed with freckles, etc.) and have been wearing your PurePressed Base in Warm Silk for many years. With your increased popularity, it's becoming easier to find your products - I love it. CONGRATS on the best product of the millennium (even better than my Apple computer) and keep up the good work.
I love this product! Great feel (not heavy or cakey) Ivory was light enough for my skin tone (very white skin!), though it had a bit of a pinkish tinge-not for me. I'm looking forward to trying Bisque though, i think it will go much better.
Also it provides a lot of coverage!
This pressed powder provides fabulous coverage while still maintaining a natural look. It never looks overdone and resists caking no matter how many times you touch up during the day. The fact that it is non-irritating and provides UVA/UVB protection is definitely a big plus. It provides shine protection all day long. My only complaint is that I wish they made it in a lighter shade. I ordered Ivory, which is okay for the height of summer, but I won't be able to wear it in winter.
Best Foundation I've Ever Used
I have been using these products for over 5 years. I've tried just about every foundation out there from drug store brands to pricey department store foundations. I have never found a foundation that does everything that JI does. It has no equal that I have found in coverage, look, feel, and benefits for the skin. I'm an esthetician and I tell all my clients to use JI, once they do they never go back - neither have I!
BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
It's both safe and better than any other pressed powder I've tried. When you want a little more coverage than the loose powder, this is it!
My friends, family and myself applaude Jane Iredale on having the variety of colors for the mineral foundation in the global selection! There are many companies that have only 4 or 5 color choices, and within those 4 or 5 choices there is nothing for women of color. Hopefully other companies will get a clue and follow this example.
Wow, seriously great coverage and so natural and light looking! I recently made the switch to all natural and organic products. I was nervous when purchasing this foundation because of all the color choices.... warm silk matches me perfectly! I do find mid day I get a little shine on my nose. I think I'll purchase the oil control pressed powder here soon. Thank Jane for making such an amazing product. I just got this yesterday, if I find I don't break out from this I will be a dedicated customer for life! :)
Great coverage and love the SPF benefit too!
Best foundation ever invented
You do not need to be a make artist to apply this foundation. First time I found such an easy foundation, no smudges, apply as much colour as is required. One PurePressed last me more than a year! So it's worth all your money!
Best Mineral Foundation Available!
I worked in cosmetics for three years and have tried ALOT of foundations, and this base is by far the best. It feels light and clean, yet can build to flawless coverage. It is gentle too and a perfect concealer for acne prone skin. I will be using this product for years to come!!!
I love this base foundation. It goes on smooth and stays fresh looking all day long. No creasing or streaking.
Great basic base
I love this base. It stays on and works great for quick touch ups.
This product is great. It goes on easily and provides great coverage all day.
