Review: Sephora Mineral Loose powder foundation

Shown in 15 Clair Light (second lightest shade)

Coverage on my acne and post acne scars

Product description:

What it is:
A hydrating, 97-percent-mineral foundation that creates a matte, flawless, natural-looking finish.What it does: Achieve beautifully buildable coverage with this versatile complexion-perfecting essential, suited to all skin types. Even out skintone, and conceal blemishes and imperfections with this antioxidant-infused formulation.What it is formulated WITHOUT: - Parabens - Synthetic Fragrances

Tested on the most sensitive of complexions, this noncomedogenic blend is free of allergens, fragrance, and talc. One jar lasts about five months when used daily.

Research Results: The sensitivity test was carried out over 21 days, under dermatological control, on 19 women with sensitive skin.

- Matte finish
- Blends easily
- Hydrating (supposedly)
- Sturdy plastic jar

- Very sheer coverage
- No SPF
- Messy application (as all loose powders are)

$18 for 0.3 oz / 8.5 g
8/20/11 - Currently on sale at Sephora for $3

Overall: B
If this wasn't on sale for $5 (when I bought it), I don't think I would've tried this for $18. Compared to Pur Minerals (see my review here), this is definitely sheerer, but it's okay as a setting powder. The oil-control isn't great either... But it leaves a nice finish for photos.
