My Mom introduced me to mineral make up. It's great! Jen Gaum did a great job of explaining how it is on your skin. You can't even feel it, and my skin never breaks out! Many compliments from many people! I love it! Would never go back to regular make up!

come on everyone, don't worry so much about getting old and wasting money on all these creams. Be relaxed with who you are!

This line looks like it's a step above several other mineral makeup brands out there (especially the biggest one I'm sure we've all heard about). I love the hydrating spray & the tinted foundation moisturizer. Probably my only complaint with my mineral makeup is that if I don't use enough moisturizer prior to applying, I sometimes feel over-dry. I think the spray would def help with that! I'll be heading to my local WF to check this stuff out!

WORST PRODUCT EVER....I was sooo excited to go try, and let me tell you, not worth your money. The "spray" smells like lysol, while it hydrates somewhat, the smell is just off kilter (like a sunless tanner), and the brush is TERRIBLE. It sheds EVERYWHERE, and leads your face, clothes, neck, etc looking like you own a very very big hairy black cat. The powders are somewhat decent texture, but since the applicator is so bad, they go on chaulky. I did like the light end of luster for nighttime (it is too glittery for daytime, you end up looking like 12 year old playing with glitter makeup). Save your money to buy Bare Minerals....this mineral fusion is the dollar store version.

Is this made by Bare Escentuals? I use and love their bare minerals makeup, and noticed that this brand's brushes go by the same names (kabuki, flawless face) as my Bare Escentuals brushes. I'm curious to know if this is the same product.

Cool. I've been hearing of mineral makeup but didn't really know what it was all about. I think I should give it a try!

I got the link for this off of http://www.modmom.blogspot.com and I found this podcast to be very informative! I have heard a lot about mineral make up these days and it was great to learn how to properly apply it and what kinds of products whole foods will be offering. Great stuff!

I stopped in my local wholefoodsmarket and saw the makeup on sale no less. I am a mineral make-up user, so thought why not. I do like the fact that I was able to purchase a pressed powder version of mineral make-up, very convenient. I love the hydrating mist, and the powder gives me great coverage. I just wish that the brush was of better quality, it sheds all over. I would reccomend the products.

“Hey…I bought the kit too and had a similar problem with the Brush, But I washed it and let it dry and it stopped shedding…Now it works great!”

Thanks for the video... I have been looking around at the different mineral makeup products out there. I have sensitive skin and have just quit wearing liquid makeup. I now wear just powder but don't get the coverage. Lots of good tips here for application!

I found out about the $20 sale last month too late! My boyfriend took pity on me and treated me to the pressed powder & kabuki brush. They're amazing, but it ended up costing about $80 for the two of them. It hurts a little, when I know I missed out on a good thing. ;( As for the people who say "be happy with who you are, don't waste money on makeup"... Using makeup helps boost people's confidence by concealing things like scars. It's not cosmetic surgery. In an ideal world, no one would need makeup, but people are sadly shallow & judge others by their appearance. If it helps someone keep their chin up a bit more, then who cares whether they want to use makeup or not? :)

To Comment #2: I am a medical esthetician and used to teach the application of cosmetics (mineral make-up in specific). Yes, you CAN touch a clients face with your hands given that the client sees you wash them very well with soap and water. There is absolutely nothing wrong with skin to skin contact. In fact, most clients do not like the feel of rubber gloves against their face...and neither does the make-up! This woman is doing everything right, you are simply misinformed.

Although this new make-up line looks interesting... My only question is about the brush - looks like animal hair/sable or slaughterhouse by-products. Is this so?

I watched this video and it was very good. I am currently wearing a mineral makeup (not Whole Food's), but I am little confused about this demonstration. I thought mineral makeup only came in powder form, not liquid. I know Jen applied a tint, which was liquid, but what was the mineral makeup she used?

Thanks for your question about mineral makeup in liquid form. When creating liquid mineral foundations, there are many other ingredients aside from minerals in the formula to make the product liquid, spreadable and cream like. Mineral Fusion's liquid sheer tint is mineral based. It offers light coverage and a dewy finish. It can also be used as a primer for the skin under a pressed or loose base. The coverage and finish is very different from a powder form, which appeals to many women. The SPF protection is less in liquid form because the mineral content is not as concentrated as it is in our pressed or loose bases which offer an SPF of 18+.
