Highly PigmentedThis foundation is highly pigmented and gives excellent coverage, so you really don't need much at all. However it is pricey for only a small amount of product so I have now opted to use a different brand.
The bestI love this foundation. It applies beautifully and is perfectly buildable. It's a nice finish, not shimmery, just natural. I use Nurture in the summer and Strength in the winter. Strength has a definite yellow base to counteract redness which works well for me. I don't get any dryness or caking. I've repurchased several times.
Favourite powderBest loose powder I’ve ever used! So easy to use if your just starting to use loose powder and blends very easily
love this powderthis is great, it gives a nice even finish to my liquid foundation or I can wear it by itself for a light glow
Worth to try!!!I have been using Inika product for 3yrs now. I'm absolutely recommend all their product because they are clean,organic,vegan ,cruelty free and Halal. I have combination of normal to oily skin and this mineral foundation does not budge till mid day where you need to touch up. It's more to light coverage but is good for the skin. I am light to medium skin tone with pink undertones I use Freedom is...Read More
Only foundation I buyThis is by far the best foundation I have ever tried. It gives good coverage (light - full depending on how much you apply), and has a beautiful natural finish. I don't have amazing skin naturally but often get complimented on having good skin when I use this.. Lasts really well through sweating, swimming, sleeping (not condoning that), nights out etc. Plus has some sun protection and doesn't irri...Read More
Yas yas yas!verified purchaserDo yourself a favour and buy this foundation! You will not be disappointed.
Build-able flawless coverage without looking cakey - love it!
BrilliantI have been using the INIKA mineral foundation for 10+ years. It allows my skin to breathe and does not clog or settle in my pores. The coverage is very buildable - anyhwere from a light dusting to control shine to a medium coverage. I can still see my skin and freckles underneath which I like. I have oily skin this product works really well for me. I have tried a few other foundation s lately (c...Read More
a great natural alternativethis is great if you are into natural make up, gives a nice finish and is easy to blend in
Best ever loose foundationBest loose foundation I ever used! Helped get rid of my acne after I switched from liquid foundation and I love that it’s all natural! So easy to apply as well and can achieve light or full coverage
A staple in my makeup bagI have used this mineral foundation for years and with the kabuki brush find that the pot lasts for a while. Coverage is fairly light but more than adequate unless you have very red acne. I love how light it is (I forget I'm wearing make up when it's on), the SPF and that it doesn't cause any breakouts.
Best foundationI've been using this for years and I keep coming back to it. Good coverage, natural looking. Good for hot weather. Probably not good if you have very dry skin.
It can start to wear off towards the end of the day though. And I find it's hard not to waste some of it because of the container it comes in
All day coverageEven as I start to develop a light wrinkle or two around my eyes and forehead, this stays in place and gives great coverage all day. My workplace is sweaty and it only takes a little blotting to make it look fresh again, coworkers often ask what foundation I use as it looks so natural.
a great natural optionthis is a great natural, vegan option. Feels great on my skin and blends in well for a light coverage.
FlawlessFeels so light on the skin
Love!Love this powder, for a natural product it actually is really buildable to give a full coverage look especially if you apply the liquid foundation underneath. Easy to buff into the skin and leaves the skin looking so smooth! Never breakout with this either unlike some other unnatural foundation brands.
Great coverageGives such a great coverage & so good for price
It's so good, but doesn't last long :(I adore this product!! I got the colour Unity. i am fair, even in summer. This is the best go to for me! Super light, amazing for oily skin and sensitive skin. BUT I like to build it up, which this product allows you to.... sadly this means that its only lasted me about 4 weeks :(
FabLove love love the finish look it gives me so good '
Great finishMy daughter recommended this foundation for me and I am glad she did as it leaves a smooth even finish on my skin and lasts the whole day without shine. I am very impressed.
Great coverage and flawless lookI have been using this foundation for years, it’s great on its own for a quick touch up and gives a natural look or on top of a cream foundation for a heavier coverage.
A little goes a long way and It lasts all day.
I would recommend the kabuki brush to apply it.
Best mineral foundationI've been using this product for years now. I've tried other mineral brands, but always end up coming back to this one. Light coverage but you can build it up to have a fuller coverage.
I've got dry skin and have had on/off acne all my teenage and adult life... so I am really picky about what goes on my face. This causes no irritation or break outs.
Also it's essential (even when you...Read More
Amazing!The coverage is good and builds well, plus it has a lovely luminous sparkle.I love that this has Suncreen coverage too, as it means I don’t have to put on sunscreen every day.
LightFeels very light on my skin but gives a light, yet flawless coverage To my skin. I’m very happy with this one!
Love itLove this foundation. Once you have the right colour , I can’t fault it. Goes on smoothly, great for everyday light/medium coverage, and you can build up to the coverage you want. It’s pricey but personally I think it’s worth it and a little goes a long way
The best foundationI have been using this foundation for years. I have normal to oily skin and an average complexion. I use Nurture which has great coverage and allows me to use it all year round. Adore also have the best price which never changes. Express delivery and free samples. LOVE IT!!!
Decent coverageI found the coverage of this to be good, there is some sparkle in the mix for light reflection. It goes on well. However, It’s not my favourite mineral foundation.
Great CoverageWonderful product that allows you to build up as much coverage as you need. Feels great on the skin and lasts all day.
LOVE IT, LOVE IT LOVE IT!I love this brand so much. This loose powder with the liquid foundaton are the best combination for my mix skin.
definitely the best of its kindI have been using this loose powder for years and when they bring in new more colours, i even love it. i found my perfcet match-Grace. Being Asian, we wouldnt want to look dark or tan, and quite hard to match powder to suit our complexion - either to makes us look too fair or too dark. Grace is neutral, i believe its base colour too is neutral, not too yellow or too pink. My skin is not porcelain...Read More
Go-to mineral powderI have combination skin, with post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation and bought this powder to add a bit more coverage. I use this as a setting powder, after applying a base layer of Inika liquid foundation. It's super light on my skin and great for a matte finish. it's long-lasting and keeps oil to a minimum throughout the day. This powder has become a key part of my makeup routine!
Love Love LoveI have been using this product for as long as I can remember. I have pigmentation from sun damage and I love the coverage it gives. I like how you can choose to have a more natural look or full face coverage with the amount you apply. The range of colours is great too I go lighter in winter and darker and summer and lasts me ages. Feels light and I can sleep with it on, for those nights it's just ...Read More
Great coverage, natural finishI like full coverage foundation and thus was sceptical about trying mineral foundation, but this is rather exceptional. It gives great coverage and is incredibly long-lasting.
Sometimes as soon as I've applied it, it can look slightly powdery/opaque but that does away in 10 or so minutes and leaves a really nice, natural finish.
Mineral powderThis mineral powder is good! it gives a full coverage! easy to blend in! messy application but isn't all mineral powders!
kinda of mehNice but colours didnt match super well and couldnt find something perfect for my skin type
SPF and coverageI love that this has spf 25, as it means I don’t have to put on sunscreen every day and clog up my pores. The coverage is good and builds well, plus it has a lovely luminous sparkle.
Fantastic mineral powderLove using this powderinstead of liquid foundation. Smooth finish.
Perfect way to include SPF!The best part about this foundation for me is that I can include SPF of the less-chemically form, (zinc oxide) without the thick, stiff formulation of zinc sunscreens and moisturisers. And on top of that this is the nicest, natural foundation I’ve experienced. I picked ‘nurture’ as it was said to match most skin tones and I’ve found that it matches mine perfectly! It builds nicely and stays well o...Read More
You won't be disappointed.I have used this foundation for years and have never found it's equal. It is pricier than other powders but I would definitely say it's worth the money. A little goes a long way too.
Fantastic productThis is by far the best foundation I have ever used ! Love it
Smooth powderGoes on smoothly, doesn't have staying power but it looks nice if reapplied. Good for daily use light coverage.
Love at first sightThis mineral powder was recommended to me by my beautician as I’ve got combination and acne prone skin! I used to use liquid foundation for the last 10 years and apparently that’s what used to cause my break outs! Since I’ve used this my face is a lot more smooth and not as acne prone as it used to be! This is just amazing and not cakey at all! Very natural and light weight! Love love love it
Let the compliments roll inThis mineral foundation came highly regarded so I decided to give it a try. I was initially a bit worried when I first opened it to see how shimmery it looked (I actually had to double check I'd purchased the correct product) but once I applied it, I was very impressed with the finish and coverage. It's light and buildable and gives a gorgeous glow. I receive so many compliments when I wear this.
Great for setting their mineral liquid foundationI find I have to use this powder in conjunction with their liquid foundation so that I can set it and make sure that it doesn't rub off.
Love it!I’ve never been a fan of loose powder foundations but the product has changed my mind! I have oily skin so this foundation definitely covers up all my oils but at the same time doesn’t make my face look dry and gross. It is the perfect coverage and very buildable, it blends out so easily and flawlessly! 10000% recommend
Not enough coverageI found that you need a fair bit of the product to get a good coverage, and due to this I ran out of it really quickly. I didn't find a colour suited my skin perfectly, I was kind of between colours
definitely a staple!This product is so perfect to put over your foundation as it adds coverage, making the skin look flawless. As someone who suffers from oily skin I can say my skin is shine free the whole day, and more importantly it doesn't break me out!!
Sample but goodI got a sample to try and it’s lasted me ages! I like the bronzer it’s a good colour and has a bit of shimmer!
GreatGreat coverage and but feels so light weight on my skin
PerfectionBest mineral foundation out there, natural look and soft finish!
GreatAt first I didn't like this product, but after learning the best way to apply it, I fell in love! I apply this with a kabuki brush over the top of the Inika BB cream (nude). I find that you get more coverage if you stipple it, rather than using circular motions. I have combination, acne-prone skin and this foundation (with the BB cream) lasts all day, doesn't crease, doesn't make my skin oily or d...Read More
Love InikaI’ve got fair skin and I’ve been using Inika Strength powder foundation for years. I love that it’s so easy to apply with the Inika kabuki brush and it doesn’t feel heavy. It’s natural and doesn’t contain any nasties either!
PerfectI have recently switched to Inika as I've realised that the previous 'natural' mineral makeup I was using had comedogenic ingredients in it which was causing breakouts. I have fair skin and the colour Unity is great. It covers and builds well. Definately recommend.
not badit has good coverage and blends nicely, it does however need reapplication by early afternoon
Not impressed!This powder was way too glittery and also broke out my entire chin area. So disappointed. I can’t return it as I didn’t get photos of my reaction and now I have a full pot of this just sitting there. Not a fan of this product at all.
Love itLight weight and beautiful finish on my skin... looks so natural
Best foundation you’ll ever useThis mineral foundation is so good that I have consistently re purchased it over the last 10 years.
I have combination skin with the odd break out and some acne scarring. It’s perfect on its own and is buildable, or as a powder to set a liquid foundation when you’d like a bit more coverage, or keep the shine at bay. My skin loves it and it seems to calm any redness I have down. Bonus is tha...Read More
Best foundation I've ever used!Hands down the best foundation I've ever used! I have sensitive skin that can be oily but also dry and prone to eczema and this product helps all of those things. It has buildable coverage and is comfortable on the skin.
The Best!!!I use Nurture for my skin and have done for 10 years... I tried the baked but that has no SPF ...so I love the loose as you can get a natural finish or heavier depending on application . It also has SPF 25 ...that is the highest vegan loose mineral makeup I have ever found
I use every day! and I believe this is why I have great skin!
Great Mineral MakeupThe best Mineral Makeup I have used, provides super good coverage but still feels so light, great for acne prone or sensitive skin,
Love it !I’ve tried so many mineral foundations, and this one is by far my favourite. It’s a really good coverage and long wearing foundation that you can wear on its own- or over the top of a liquid foundation
Lightweight but completely build-ableLOVE LOVE LOVE this powder! Was originally just looking for a powder for slightly more coverage to my foundation, but this has become the only thing I use for a day look. Has the perfect amount of coverage, plus a slight simmer for a natural glow. On top of foundation it gives a flawless complexion without overpowering the foundation it’s self. Could not recommend enough!!
Simply the bestI use this to set my liquid foundation and it gives me a beautifully soft, glowy finish while helping keep oil at bay. A jar lasts me forever as I'm only dusting my face with it, not applying it as a regular foundation - my last jar lasted 18 months.
Great mineral powder, stays on wellI have been using FitCover for the last few months, I was after a mineral powder that would look natural, give light to medium coverage and most importantly, stay put during hot, humid QLD weather. I was not disappointed. After a full day of wear and a HIIT workout, the powder held up surprisingly well. There was some minor settling into lines, but over all I was impressed. Will buy again
LoveLOVE this powder. Great coverage and doesn’t leave you looking too matte. Completely gets rid of shine and lasts throughout the day. The only downside is the packaging - it can be difficult to get the powder out without spilling it, but still hasn’t stopped me from re-ordering.
A big YES from meskin type: light/yellow base w/freckles - Dry and sometimes sensitive
I love this powder!! Having dry skin I was a bit hesitant to use powder thinking it would dry my skin further and look cakey. This certainly is not the case with this powder. I apply this product on top of Inika mineral foundation for a fuller coverage finish. The powder seems to instantly illuminate and smooth the ...Read More
Great for every day wearI have oily, break out prone skin and using this foundation with the inika kabuki brush (or any good kabuki brush) is fabulous for everyday wear.
By layering and buffing in circular motion this can go from a light to medium coverage powder to full coverage and it lasts all day.
In a humid climate this lasts from the beginning to end of my day with only minimal oiliness toward the end...Read More
Good foundationThis is a lovely foundation. Personally I prefer their liquid foundations for my skin type but I used this for years beforehand & loved it.
OkThis mineral foundation was ok, but made my skin break out. It looked great on, but not for me.
AmazingGives such a natural glow, I seriously love this powder.
Excellent FoundationI have used Inika Mineral Foundation for more than 5 years. The powder is light, it covers well but does not clog pores. Always my go to foundation.
Amazing mineral foundationReally love this brand and product, I have used so many of these pots and the coverage is really nice and silky. Best applied with a kabuki brush. I am in the shade nurture and I really like how it sits on my skin. Ensure your skin is well exfoliated if using mineral makeup as I find if it's not it can catch on patchy dry spots, so that's just a tip for making this look even better! :)
my everyday go toI use this mineral foundation daily in the shade unity. It's easy and light weight but you can also build up the coverage! I also love the added bonus of having SPF 15 protection. It will always be my all time favourite!
Fantastic foundation!I have been using this product, in Strength, since 2014 and I absolutely love it. It goes on easily and you can layer it, depending on whether you want light or heavier coverage. It is natural looking and so light on the skin. I could never go back to a liquid foundation after using this! I use it with the Inika concealer. Highly recommend!
Flawless foundationThe foundation provides flawless coverage, it blends in really well. It doubles as a concealer, it cover blemishes and dark circles really well.
FantasticHave used this on and off for 8 years or more. Great natural finish, which is very buildable without going cakey. I am quite fair (NC15-20) and use shade Grace in winter, Unity in summer or when fake tanned. Lately have also used it as a dusting powder over liquid foundation and also works well like that. Very gentle on my sensitive skin.
Most beautiful mineral powderI absolutely love inika's powder foundations I use a range of their colours and I love them all, they always leave a beautiful and flawless finish without looking powdery
Love, love, love.So I’ve tried Youngblood but thought I would give this one a go due to the reviews. As I’m fair like a vampire, I use a BB cream (la roche) with spf as a base and just use a light coating of the powder. Works amazing and it’s not too heavy. Gives great coverage too!
Long lastingThis powder is great! My skin is more on the oily side and it definitely gives me a lovely matte finish that lasts the whole day. I apply this over a tinted sunscreen and that is all the coverage I need.
Good coverage, natural productI've been using the Patience mineral powder for almost a year now. I have tried a few different natural vegan foundations, and found this one to be the best. There is a slight glitter to the formula, but when on it just blends in. It's a really great everyday product and doesn't seem to clog my pores.
Natural makeup thats good for your skinI use this powder in shade Unity and it is lovely , I also love this with their Primer. Its a beautiful finish that gives your skin a healthy glow. It has great coverage but is buildable if you love that thicker look . I am fair to medium in skin colour and this powder is a lovely shade
Pretty and buildableI love this mineral foundation! It has quite a natural coverage that coverage that you can easily build up for more. It looks so natural and pretty on the face.
Great coverage and nice GlowI use the shade Unity which is great for not the most pale of skin but not olive either ! this is great as an over the top powder or you can build on top of primer. Its affordable as lasts a long time and its good for your skin. I have medium to oily skin and find this product great !
Buildable coverageI have combination skin with spots on my chin and forehead. I live in a hot climate where it's very humid most of the time. I love this foundation because it's breathable and my skin can sweat in the hot weather. I lightly blot with a tissue and the foundation remains. It has buildable coverage. I like the finish which after half an hour looks like a liquid foundation as it melts into skin.
Best mineral foundationI have dry skin and typically go for a liquid foundation. I was so pleasantly surprised after trying this product for the first time. It gave fantastic coverage and felt lovely on my skin, and best of all it wasn't drying! It settled into the skin so nicely, and you can easily build coverage as you want. It is expensive but definitely worth it. A container lasted me around 6 months and that was wi...Read More
Natural, customisable coverageI have oily/combination skin and have always used liquid foundations but thought I would give this a go. Many liquids for oily skin dry to this kind of film over your skin, which when accidentally rubbed off, can look nasty and there is no way to touch it up without making it even worse. I have found this powder just doesn't do that and you can take it with you to touch up at any time without it e...Read More
Love it !I’ve tried dozens of different mineral makeups- and this one is up there with the best. Fantastic colour selection, you can go as natural or as ‘full’ coverage as you like. I’ve got very combination skin and it’s non drying and still keeps the shine away. Rate this a lot higher than some of the big brands out there. Very underrated foundation.
Great for a lazy galI have normal skin but I’m just so lazy with make up. I just want it to match my face and look good. And this does!
It’s lightweight and lasts! It’s natural and vegan.
Only con is that it’s a bit tricky to get out (maybe I’m doing it wrong!?)
shocked & confused (in the best possible way)okay, you guys....
I'm 28 and I can honestly count on both hands the amount of times in my life that I've worn foundation. I don't feel like myself whenever I've applied it or had my make up done and I finally know why; I should have been using mineral foundation as opposed to liquid this whole dang time! Our lovely make up artist, Vanessa, did my make up using the Inika Loose Mineral...Read More
Great productGreat foundation if you have sensitive acne prone skin! I find that this does not break me out and its texture is lovely! Would recommend this!
Gentle on skinMy combination skin can sometimes become sensitive, red and easily irritated. That’s when I love this inika loose mineral foundation because it doesn’t cause further irritation. It blends easily, feels silky smooth and yes you can build it a bit to even out skin tone as a whole but certainly not for full spot coverage like red blemishes. I wear nurture but find it’s a little toward the neutral sid...Read More
My go to for coverageI've been using this product for a few years now and I think it's pretty great. I have light skin but I tan well and I have a few freckles. It provides a good amount of coverage for me (my skin is pretty balanced and I rarely get pimples). I've tried other brands powders, bb creams and liquid but so far this is the best I've found that is vegan.
Looks naturalRead More
Holy Grail Natural FOundationI recently purchased this foundation for my lighter coverage days and it looks amazing, i have dry skin and the foundation doesnt look cakey and still looks like my skin.
Light but great coverageI started using this product a year or so ago once I started getting breakouts and I haven't looked back since. This product is amazing - it gives really good coverage but feels so lightweight. It gives the perfect no-make up make up look.
I have a medium skin tone with yellow undertones and I use patience.
Natural coverageThis product is great over bb cream or a light coverage liquid foundation and provides a smooth finish that isn't too heavy and which doesn't clog the skin. It's equally good when used alone if you're after something lightweight
Very good coverageThis mineral foundation is great. I use it for all sorts of looks, minimal and simple or full coverage
Each look is great and doesn't sweat off.
Perfect loose mineral foundationI have used this product for nearly 10 years and I don’t plan on switching anytime soon.
You can have a natural or full coverage depending on what you’re after. The shade I use suits my skin perfectly and I always find it sits well on my skin and super easy to blend in. Doesn’t leave my skin looking dry at all. Works well with the inika primer underneath aswell. I would highly recommend any...Read More
Soft and NaturalThis product is great over bb cream or a light coverage liquid foundation and provides a smooth finish that isn't too heavy and which doesn't clog the skin. It's equally good when used alone if you're after something lightweight.
beautiful coverageI have been using this product for a few days now and absolutely love it. I suffer from hormonal acne and find if I wear liquid foundation to often this can cause my blemishes to become more inflamed so I decided to convert to a mineral makeup during the week and I will never go this. The coverage is perfect and I find the product stays on my skin without moving.
ConvertedInika was my trial in mineral makeup as well as loose foundation. I have lots of freckles and I hate the way liquid foundations take them away and made me look a little flat. I love layering this up and developing a natural look. It's strong enough to hide any pimples. It also feels lovely against the skin - soft, rather than oily.
