Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love the brand, not great powder I’m disappointed with Burt’s bees foundations. The colors are far and few between and it’s hard to find one that works. This powder was very caky on my dry acne prone face. Too bad :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail Finally found my holy grail powder! Keeps my skin looking natural and matte. Gives good coverage (I use a powder puff to apply). Vanilla is the perfect shade for me. The package is super cute. Won’t settle in my lines. Please don’t ever discontinue this powder!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transitioning to all Burt's Bees. Love this. I love this product and the packaging. The sleek design is so practical with the foam applicator, mirror, and separate section for foundation. I add this product on top of the Burt's bb cream for a dresser look. I wear almond and would consider myself to be pretty fair skin. Would recommend going up a shade if you buy online just based on pictures. Thx Burt's bees

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best powder foundation I always wear foundation because of facial redness from rosacea. This covers my imperfections and doesn't clog my pores. It's amazing. I'm converted from liquid foundation because of this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only foundation I can use without irritation! I tried so many foundations- organic, expensive, cheap- and discovered that I am allergic to Silicone in its various forms and possibly titanium dioxide. This is the only foundation that I can use without having flaky, red, itchy, blotchy skin. I am very fair but have freckles. The color the site recommended for me, "Bare" is a little washed out, but Vanilla is perfect for my skin tone. It takes very little to give a nice smooth, even effect. This makeup is very easy and quick to use. Please keep the formula the same!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonder Powder!!! I adore the coverage, shade, and price of this awesome powder foundation. All I have to do is put a tiny bit of concealer on problem areas and dust this powder over my whole face, completely covered and doesn’t even look like I’m wearing anything!!! So amazing and affordable. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great powder! I use this as a finishing powder and love it. It is lightweight and matches my skin perfectly. It's not enough coverage to use as foundation on its own, but it works well with my liquid foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I was looking for a powder foundation that was not full of horrible chemicals and after doing some online searching I found that Burt's Bees was near the top of several lists that also had REALLY expensive foundations too. I tried it and I fell in love. When I went back to replace the one I had purchased I found that the store no longer carried it so now I order it online. I would not go back to my other stuff which was also not filled with horrible chemicals, but was a lot more expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for dry blotchy skin I just got this foundation and am so impressed! Usually foundation is cakey and drying. This stuff is like a dream. I'd only be more impressed if I could get a refill cake so I don't have to purchase more plastic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad reaction I typically use Physician's Formula mineral powder foundation, however the drugstore was sold out recently and one of the beauty counter reps suggested Burt's Bees instead. Unfortunately this did not work well for me, I found the colour to have a grey undertone that was not flattering. Also after 4 days of use (changing none of the other products I regularly use) my skin started to react, becoming very dry, red and scaly. I went a week without using foundation and my skin went back to normal, started using Physician's Formula again with no reaction. I was very disappointed because I use Burt's Bees lip balms faithfully and will accept no substitute, I had high hopes for the cosmetics.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Foundation match wrong I used the Burt's Bees foundation match. The color it suggested makes me look like a ghost. Not my match. By the way people have blue vein color too not just green and purple to choose from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty good for an affordable, natural product This foundation is actually pretty good for the price. It goes on very light but it seems like it is buildable so you can probably get light or full coverage depending on your needs. I only need light coverage and found that it didn't settle into my fine lines, so that was nice. I tested the shades in the store and they are much different from how they are portrayed online. For instance I have medium skin with yellow undertones and I matched with the Almond colour. If I ordered online I probably would have chosen the Bamboo colour based on the photos. But my favourite thing about this foundation is that it's natural and doesn't contain any toxic ingredients. Will definitely purchase this again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Powder doesn’t spread well, colour is off I went ahead and bought quite a bit from the make up line because I liked the idea of having natural ingredients on my face and not polluting my skin with some of the stuff that’s in other make up and was really excited for the out come! But I will say I was kind of let down, I found the colour left me with a really washed out look and the powder just kind of set on top of your face, still like the idea of this product but wouldn’t recommend it unfortunately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good powder but color is off I use powder foundation to control shine, and I bought this because it's all natural and I like Burt's Bees products. The powder feels light and works well, but the color recommendation in the Foundation Shade Finder was wrong for me. I have olive skin and usually buy neutral foundation in the medium range. I tried the Bamboo, but it's too light. I will try the Almond or Nutmeg and hope for a better match.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love!! I had been using a high end makeup line for about 10+ years and decided to make a change. I stick with naturally based products all around and have loved Burt's Bees products for quite some time so I decided to try their makeup. I love it!!! The coverage is great (I tend to have breakouts so I just add a little bit of concealer over them). I first use a natural face cream, then Burt's Bees BB cream (obsessed) and this powder. If it tends to feel a little dry on your skin and you need a little extra moisture boost, I would add a facial oil to your regimen before applying this powder. I will be forever sticking with this! My skin absolutely loves it & has also reduced it's breakouts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love BB Makeup! I'm so glad BB has come out with makeup again. I love the tinted moisturizer as abase and this Mattifying powder offers great coverage without feeling cakey. It's just the right light weight product if you don't like a heavy make up look. And the price is great for a product I feel confidant wearing on my skin all day. I'm quite pale, so the lightest color works perfectly for my winter complexion - though I may have to go to the next darker shade for summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm enjoying this! It is super sheer so it use it as a setting powder on top of my foundation and it does a good job at mattifying and setting. Last for about 4 hours and then I have to use this again to touch up my foundation (not too much hassle). Be careful not to overuse this because it can look powdery and get cakey.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointing I just bought the B.B. cream and this powder. I loved the B.B. cream and it looked great on my freckled face. The powder on the other hand looked awful, cakey and felt dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite I had not intended to purchase this makeup when I went shopping for foundation, but I'm so glad that I did. I purchased this in the sand color. I have always been a fan of some of the Burt's Bees products but I have officially switched my makeup brand. I love the light weight feel of the powder and that I can control the amount of coverage I want or need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great product! This is a great powder foundation to use both on it's own and with the foundation! The coverage is nice. It glides onto the skin and it doesn't feel heavy or cakey. There is no smell which is nice and I love the container it is in. I've tried other companies products that are similar but nothing comes close to this quality! Overall, a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only Burt's Bees Touches my Skin I love this mattfying powder. Nutmeg is the shade that fits my skin color. I use it everytime I go to work. Match it with bare peach blush and suede splash lipstick. The packaging is pretty and sturdy. Good quality material and it is 100% natural. It is not well pigmented which I like. Even if I wear this I would not want to look fake. I want the natural looking face, look and beauty. That's what burt's bees is all about. If there is anything BB teach me, it's about loving the skin you are in, and nourishing it with non harmful prodcuts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs Improvent Powder does not have enough pigment, not oil controlling, not mattifying, no coverage, and chalky. needs improvement in formula drastically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing Almost every foundation I've used made me break out, but not this one. It's light, as if you can't feel it on your skin. The tone blends well also. I recommend it 100%.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Takes away the dewy look of the liquid foundation This works best with the liquid foundation. The coverage isn't too great- it's very sheer. But it takes away the dewy/greasy look of the liquid foundation and sets the foundation well. I don't think I could wear it on its own, but I haven't tried it. I think it's a little expensive, since it really only serves to set the foundation. It's about $7 too expensive in my opinion. However, I don't want to turn anyone off the product. I would still recommend it. The darker colors might be a little less sheer, since I'm using the lightest color in the line- literally called Bare. The product seems like it will last a long time as well, since there is no extra powder coming off the compact when I swirl a brush or use the provided pad. I'm not wasting product. The packaging itself is lovely. I don't feel like it's going to snap in half if I pull too hard or drop it, and I enjoy the little compartment below the powder. I would like the provided sponge to be a little thicker, but it's not too notable otherwise. Not good, and not bad either. There is no smell, which is great since the foundation and micellar water are gag-worthy. I also like the honeycomb design on the top, just for aesthetics. It lasts a good while since there is no extra powder coming from the make-up when you use it. Overall, I recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unfortunately Disappointed I have always loved Burts Bees products and was stoked when all the makeup came out. I planned to switch my entire routine to all BB's products. I started with lipstick that I love and then bought the burts box to get a feel for all the makeup except the foundation. After loving all that I decided to purchase foundation. I purchased the liquid and the BB cream AND the mattifying powder. No matter what combination I use it makes my face look both cakey AND oily. Around my nose and chin will look super dried out and flaky while my forehead and cheeks are oily looking and it comes off very easily. I can't figure out how to make any of it look proper! By the end of my day my face looks super oily and splotchy and uncovered. I am so sad! I would love to use entirely burts products! They've got great ingredients and quality! Sadly I feel as if I've wasted a good chunk of money on the foundation though. It also makes me appear very pale. I am usually one of the lightest colors available but there's something about these tones that makes me look sickly pale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW This is the perfect make up. It is so silky and yet durable and long lasting. You can't even tell you are wearing make up that's how comfortable it is. And it is all natural and affordable. Thank you so much for creating a make up line, my life is complete :)
