Powder Foundations are not something I normally feature on my blog simply because I personally prefer liquid. That being said I have used powder foundation before and have really enjoyed using it. The one I used previously was the Bare Minerals Mineral Foundation and so when I got the chance to try out the Jane Iredale’s version I could not say no.
Jane Iredale’s foundation system works a little bit like MAC cosmetics in that you buy the compact and the foundation pan and simply refill the compact. I have to say that the Jane Iredale compact is one of the most beautiful compacts that I have ever seen. It’s made out of thick sturdy gold-coloured metal and has the letter J embossed on the cover of the lid. Inside the empty compact you’ll find a nice sized mirror and in the area were the pan of foundation would go is the saying “do what you love” making the entire compact so personal and special.
My shade in the foundation is Light Beige and I find the coverage to be light-medium when applied. For me I use this foundation over the Jane Iredale Dream Tint as that acts like a primer & brighter and allows the foundation to adhere better to my skin. Again like MAC I found layering this over liquid foundation gives that flawless full cover look. The powder has a soft texture to it and is really finely milled so it really doesn’t exaggerate any dry patches or cake on the face.
The powder & compact are available to purchase from the Jane Iredale website which I’ve linked below. Let me know of any powder foundations you’ve tried because since trying this one I’ve been itching to discover more 🙂
