i use avene water spray to set it and even after using blotters all day the makeup stays put

- Janeiredale User



not only did this powder cover up my blemishes and smooth my skin tone, i seriously believe that it helped my skin

- Janeiredale User

personally, i still put on liquid foundation before this for my trouble spots, but this really does make your skin look clear and smooth, and it looks natural, not cakey like some other powders

- Viewpoints User


blends well

it also matches my complexion super well while blending out any imperfections i have on my skin

- Janeiredale User

the pros are i love the color and how it goes on and is such a soft, neutral color which blends perfectly without any caking at all in my facial lines

Not worth the pre!

I purchased this make up due to super hyper pigmentation. I will not purchase again. Over priced. I thought I did everything right, including the foundation analysis for the proper shade. This shade was too light. OK, I was able to achieve a comparable shade after using a darker Bare Minerals over it which, in my opinion, defeated its purpose as I'm now using two strokes instead of one. For the price of $42, thoroughly disappointed. Did not seem to cover the pigmented skin at all and also appeared not to last all day. Gave this foundation a 1 star rating. If possible, I would have given it no stars at all.

Dear Jane, prepare yourself for a love letter. I've been using the PurePressed Base for 15 years. Throughout that time I have cheated with other brands but never for long. PurePressed is my absolute favorite foundation in *any* finish. When I first started wearing it, I wanted something that covered rosacea but didn't create a mask-like finish. I was totally blown away by how this foundation performed. It evened out my skin tone and lasted all day. Break a sweat during a brisk walk at lunchtime? No problem—blot with a tissue and the minerals remain on the skin, undisturbed.As my skin ages, I love this stuff more and more—something I never thought I would say about powder. This base never looks powdery and aging. A little goes a long way, so if I accidentally apply too much, I spritz POMMIST on a flocked sponge and dab onto my face.In summer, my skin can be oily in the T-zone, yet this powder stays fresh looking all day, without any color change. I might have to blot my nose once, but I otherwise don't touch my face from the moment I put it on in the morning until I wash it off later that evening. And the color does not smear or transfer to my collar or onto my scarves—it stays put! Double plus good that the base has an SPF of 20.I have no idea how this powder manages to look so natural—letting my freckles show through—while doing a great job at concealing. I stopped buying concealer, and if I need extra coverage, I'll use the concealer brush to pat down a tiny bit more powder over the problem area.Jane Iredale was the first of its kind, and it is head of class. Thank you <3 for offering pressed minerals to those of us who don't like working with loose pigment. Less

Outstanding, Elegant Makeup

I wear this wet-dry pressed powder, spf 20 foundation in Golden Glow. For reference, my Bare Escentuals color match is Golden Medium. JI Golden Glow is lighter, and less yellow than the BE Golden Medium, and more beige/light tan than gold, but it's the closest BE to IE match for me. Riviera and Suntan are wonderful colors for medium skin tones as well, but the undertones seem more "neutral", while Golden Glow is definitely for "warm" skin. The Jane Iredale compact is just gorgeous, and using it makes me feel refined and elegant, (and I need all the help I can get...!) When I was a child, my mother, aunts, and grandmothers would carry their Estee Lauder powders (for their noses) in artistic, ornate compacts. JI's heavy, gold colored, high quality compact makes me remember how much I longed to wear makeup just because it was pretty and fun to touch. This compact is nice to carry around to use powder as needed, but I like best to apply it in the morning as an all-over face foundation, because it lasts so long I rarely need touch-ups until late in the day. Like most mineral makeups this adds a small bit of healthy "glow", but in this case, it really is a healthy glow; not glitter, which makes my pores look 80x worse than they look without makeup. Also, unlike other mineral foundations (especially pressed ones), this doesn't cake up too badly around my eyes. My need for a traditional "matte" foundation has faded due to glycolic and retinol treatments, and, of course, age, but if this powder had existed when I truly needed long-lasting, shine-free foundation, I think it would have been a dream-come-true. Compared to all the other brands of mineral powders I've tried, Jane Iredale pressed foundation is the silkiest, has the best coverage, has no glitter, has sunscreen protection, and performs the best around my eyes without making me look like I'm 80. (I have to be realistic, at 44. Powders are going to accentuate lines. It's just the way it is. But I choose the trade-off of the accentuation of a few lines in order to cover my pores, and even out that annoying melasma. As far as coverage, refining skin tone colors, and looking smooth, this is superior to every other pressed mineral foundation I've tried. If you're looking for a "skin-like", or "no-makeup" look, this foundation probably won't work well. It's very comfortable, and it doesn't scream, "MAKE-UP!", but, at least on me, nobody would mistake it for bare skin. This has medium coverage when applied with a brush, but it can easily work as a full coverage foundation if applied with a sponge or powder puff, or wet. The price seems utterly ridiculous, and it's the one thing that kept me from trying Jane Iredale products, for years. Now that I've been using many of her products, I do see why they get away with the high price. They are more highly pigmented, color concentrated, and elegant than many other mineral brands, and their colors seem closer to the colors of real human skin than lots of other makeup. Less

Superb multi tasker

I received a replacement Chisel Powder Brush from Jane Iredale customer service, and I wanted to use it for a while before I wrote this review. It is everything I dared hope for. The bristles feel like kitten eyelashes—so silky—but not too delicate to get the job done.Some powder brushes are enormous, but the Jane Iredale Chisel Brush is perfect, with a slightly flat shape and rounded head. I can easily sweep the tips under my eyes to set concealer, and it fits into all contours of my face, such as around the nose and eye socket. The brush places the powder exactly where I want it, rather than splaying it all over as many fluffier brushes will do. Targeted application is especially important when I’m wearing a tinted pigment, as opposed to a translucent powder.The brush head picks up the perfect amount of powder, which stays nestled within the hairs after tapping off the excess, so smoothing out my skin takes mere seconds. Swirling the brush tips around the inside of a cap or lid helps to thoroughly distribute the pigment throughout the bristles before they touch my skin. If I don’t have a cap handy, I use the palm of my hand. When I’ve transferred all color from of the brush to my face, I gently drag the bristles down my face (top to bottom) so the hairs lie in the direction they grow. This method also removes excess powder that might still cling to the hairs. And if I had been too heavy handed, one of the Jane Iredale hydration sprays instantly erases a multitude of powdery sins.Because of its relatively compact size, I have used the Chisel for all manner of powder-based products: mineral foundation, translucent setting powder, and blush. I have also used it to apply a neutral wash of color to my lids (Nude PurePressed Eyeshadow), and then I mixed Nude and Wink together to create a subtle cheekbone highlighter. Choking up on the bristles made it easy to place the highlight directly on my high points of my face. Then I released the bristles to diffuse and prevent any visible lines. The Chisel probably works equally well for applying contour or bronzer, due to the smallish brush head, however I cannot comment from experience. My skin is just too fair to have any fun with more deeply-hued products.I haven’t experienced any shedding, but if a few hairs come loose in the next few washings, I won’t worry. I didn’t think anything could top my love for the Handi, but the Chisel is my Handi’s new best friend because it is a serious multi tasker. I love it. Less

Will NEVER stray

I've been using the pressed powder for over 3 years now and I will continue to repurchase for the rest of my life. I can confidently say this will suit my skin for many years to come.I'm 25 yrs old with a long standing relationship with acne. I used to be so insecure and obsessed with finding that "perfect foundation" that would hide my acne. I did what most girls do and bought heavy full coverage liquid foundation and caked on the powder right after. Safe to say my skin got worse and the coverage didn't even last throughout the day. Only when my esthetician recommend that I wear JI powder ONLY after a facial did I realize how AMAZING and superb the coverage is. I was hooked instantly. Mind you I have heavily pigmented skin from acne as well as a bit of scarring but the powder gently softens it all. I do recommend purchasing the hydration spray afterwards as it does make a HUGE difference. Without a spray it can sometimes on occasion be powder-y on drier skin days. Thank you JI! XoxoPs all my makeup products are cruelty free. I mean how can you not love Jane, she's not only amazing but humanely conscious?! Less
