Readers’ Choice: The Best 18 Mineral Makeup Products

. No. 1: Merle Norman Luxiva Purely Mineral Makeup, $25

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 9.8*
Why it’s great: “This mineral powder stays on all day long and looks great until I remove it at night. I don’t have to reapply during the day; and that means a lot! One jar lasts me three months. The brush that you apply it with is easy to clean. I clean mine about every two weeks. Just wet it down, and then I use a liquid makeup remover and rinse, and then I wash it out with a liquid hand soap.” — anmarie, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 2: GloMinerals glo Finishing Powder, $33.50

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 9.8*
Why it’s great: “I love this powder! I have oily skin and this powder soaks up oil while feeling light and fresh on my face. It lasts all day and doesn’t darken my makeup like some other powders do. I love the sleek-looking compact, definitely worth the [money]!” — alikat217, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 3: Amazing Cosmetics Velvet Mineral Powder, $32

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 9.7*
Why it’s great: “It’s so light that you don’t even realize you are wearing makeup, but yet it covers perfectly and matches your skin tone. I hated to wear foundation because my skin is oily, but ever since I started using this, I enjoy [wearing] makeup!” — minny1115, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 4: Jane Iredale PurePressed Base, $48

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 9.3*
Why it’s great: “I love Jane Iredale PurePressed Base and have been using it for two years. It works as a foundation, powder and sunscreen. It gives a light, even coverage, and looks very natural. Some tips for better results: Be sure to get the right shade for you (there are many available); a light coverage is all you need, so avoid applying too much; use the Handi brush or a similar brush (not the pad that comes in the compact); and lightly use a mister or hydrosol after applying (it sets the powder and it seems to melt right in).” — bigelove, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 5: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish/Natural, $24.50

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 9.3*
Why it’s great: “This is my holy grail powder. The coverage is light to medium and leaves a satin finish that doesn’t ever look chalky — just natural. I use this powder over my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and my skin has never looked better. I … prefer this formulation to other MAC powders which have a tendency to leave my very fair complexion looking ghoulishly pale. I highly recommend this product.” — luyuan, TotalBeauty.com membe. No. 6: Raw Natural Beauty Raw Minerals Active Veil SPF 18, $25

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 9.1*
Why it’s great: “Honestly, I’ve never used anything that has made my skin soft and healthy, and it has improved my skin so much over time, I now wear this alone and feel so pretty. I would recommend this to anyone.” — 00angel2pet00, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 7: Colorescience Suncanny Foundation Brush SPF 20, $60

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 9*
Why it’s great: “A beautiful powder foundation in a variety of shades. I would also like to add though, the ColoreScience has Sunforgettable, which has an SPF of 30. It comes in perfectly clear (translucent) so it works for most skin colors. They also have perfectly clear sparkle, for those nighttime or special events when you want a little sparkle. The regular [ones] give you a very natural-looking glow — and you can’t beat an SPF 30.” — CCulpepper, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 8: Philosophy The Supernatural Airbrush Canvas SPF 15, $35

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 9*
Why it’s great: “I’m not a big foundation girl due to the way it feels on my face but this stuff I love! Philosophy’s [The] Supernatural foundation has the full coverage [of] a liquid foundation but in an easy-to-use powder form. I have an oily T-zone and with other foundations or powders, it tends to look a little cakey towards the end of the day, but with Supernatural I have none of that. My skin looks flawless all day and … [it] has an SPF 15 too! The packaging is great, super portable, you can carry it in your bag without having to worry about it spilling, and there is a built-in mirror on the top of the cap.” — macabregirl74, TotalBeauty.com member.

No. 9: Laura Mercier Mineral Powder SPF 15, $35

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 8.9*
Why it’s great: “Before this, I would never have considered wearing makeup with this kind of coverage daily. But this is so light and quick to apply! I’m not giving it a 10 [only] because even though it can be applied really fast, it does take a while to get the hang of it and you really, really need a good brush. Otherwise it doesn’t work half as well.” — Leticiasouza, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 10: Jane Iredale PureMatte Finish Powder, $36

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 8.9*
Why it’s great: “I am not a youngster but not quite an oldster either and finishing powders have always alluded me. This is an excellent product and does not cake or turn color. It finishes, just what it is intended to do, and lasts for a long time. The color is true and is gentle to your skin, just like it says it is …” — Judieb, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 11: Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup/Foundation, $24.50

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 8.8*
Why it’s great: “I was impressed with Pur because the color was true to their descriptions and the ease of applying and the time saved was incredible. It truly is a great concealer as I have spider veins, pimples, and this does a much better job than Bare Escentuals — and I don’t use loose powder anymore. Great value and lasts throughout the day.” — Tracey777, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 12: Bare Escentuals i.d. bareMinerals 2-piece Powder Foundation & Brush w/SPF 15, $47

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 8.8*
Why it’s great: “I was very skeptical but after reading about it in numerous magazines I tried it for myself and absolutely LOVE it. The infomercials are no lie. After switching from a chemical-filled foundation to a natural product such as [this], my skin is less oily, rarely breaks out and the redness is gone. I love the way it covers without the look of makeup.” — fueysers, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 13: Joppa Minerals Full Coverage Foundation, $16

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 8.5*
Why it’s great: “I cannot say enough good things about this product. I had always shied away from foundation because it never stayed on my oily skin and the oil always caused it to change colors. Not so with this foundation. It has helped clear up most of my acne, so much so that people are now asking me how I maintain my ‘flawless’ skin. I have this product in soft coverage and I apply it lightly with Joppa’s brush. The result [is] a ‘no makeup’ yet perfect face.” — coinma, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 14: Ulta Mineral Powder Foundation, $14

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 8.5*
Why it’s great: “Ulta Mineral Powder Foundation is tops in my book! The color matches my skin well; it blends well; and it’s even soothing! It beat other mineral foundations, hands down. It wears long, needing no touch-ups throughout a whole day of work. The value for the price is excellent.” — sanavid66, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 15: Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil, $19

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 8.4*
Why it’s great: “This is one of the few things I find that [is] perfect. The product does exactly what it [is] supposed to do — make your skin look flawless and glowing. The powder is so thin and smooth that it just sets your entire look. The texture is so creamy on your skin, it doesn’t look like you have makeup on at all but your face just glows from health. One of the best things ever.” — Maggiemango, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 16: Arbonne About Face Mineral Powder Foundation, $34

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 8.2*
Why it’s great: “This foundation has great coverage. I have some issues with acne scars and this covers [them] right up. There’s a good selection of colors as well so you’re sure to find your color. The brush is a nice high quality that is soft on your skin and holds just the right amount of product. The foundation itself is very smooth and light feeling.” — MikkiG, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 17: Mary Kay Mineral Powder Foundation, $18

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 8.2*
Why it’s great: “I have fair skin that just gets whiter and whiter [throughout] winter. I had a hard time finding a foundation that matched my skin tone until I found Mary Kay Mineral Foundation. It is easy to apply, it blends in with my skin, it stays all day, and it looks natural.” — pchopcroft, TotalBeauty.com member. No. 18: Joppa Minerals Morning Dew Foundation, $16

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 8.2*
Why it’s great: “This is by far the greatest mineral makeup I [have] ever tried. It doesn’t make me itch and it stays in place all day long. It gives you a nice glow because of the bronzer that is in it. It looks great on the lightest skin tone to the darkest!” — monkeybreath333, TotalBeauty.com member.
