Soft Complexion - Pressed Powder Foundation
What to know
The best way to choose your perfect shade is to take a makeup free selfie and hold it up against the natural skin-tones of the models - we have taken a lot of time to pick and photograph models without retouching their skin, so you can choose your shade with confidence.
I am used to liquid foundation, what do I need to know about powder?
Our powders are so much better for your skin, whilst still giving you the coverage and look you want - trust us! Powder is less irritating to sensitive skin due to the need for less ingredients. Our powders are non-drying as they are talc-free and highly pigmented with mineral pigments that create coverage with minimum product. We have created all of our non-comedogenic powders without dimethicone, lauroyl lysine or any other commonly found skin irritant.
How much coverage can I expect from this powder?
You can expect light to medium coverage when you use our Iconic Flat Blending Brush, or buildable to full coverage when you use a beauty sponge directly. Always allow a few minutes for the foundation to settle down on your skin.
Is it a long lasting foundation?
Depending on how much you apply, you can enjoy a period without retouching, however it is small and compact so you can easily carry this foundation with you and touch up as and when needed. For those days when you need your makeup to last for 10 hours or more, use our phenomenal award winning Loves-You-Back Loose Powder Foundation first and take your Soft Complexion Pressed Powder Foundation with you!
How is this Foundation best applied?
For those looking for a light to medium coverage, our Hero Iconic Flat Blending Brush is your must have! Simply apply the powder in a dabbing motion, starting where you want the most coverage first. If you like to build up your coverage, then a beauty sponge is your key! Apply where you want extra coverage and build as much as you desire. Always remember to allow the Foundation to settle for a few minutes as it adapts to your skin. Magic!
What’s so great about it?
- Compact and Slim for on the go
- 13 Adaptable Shades
- Buildable Velvety Coverage for all Skin Types
- Acne Safe
- Non Comedogenic
adjective - tending to cause blackheads by blocking the pores of the skin.
Hi, my name is Rebecca and I am the Inventory Manager for The Good Mineral. I wasn't able to test the Pressed Powders in the development stages but have just received the finished product in my Shade 013 (I wear Beige 2 in the Loves-You-Back Loose Powder Foundation). When I first put it on I thought, is it too pale? My nose looks dry? Is this going to be too heavy for me? (I'm a natural makeup kind of girl!) All of these questions disappeared over the next few minutes as the Foundation settled, adapted and moved with my skin. IT LOOKS INCREDIBLE! And it just gets better and better as the day goes on. The only way I can describe it is SMOOTH! My skin looks so smooth and velvety - it doesn't feel like I'm wearing makeup. This is for sure my new favourite!!
If I was going to give any tips for new users it would be this:
1. TIME - give the foundation time to adapt and settle onto your skin - it really does get better with time. I applied mine with the Iconic Flat Blending Brush and the coverage was perfect for me.
2. MOISTURISE - the second day I used this product, I started applying within a minute of moisturising and the Foundation settled quicker and better.
I LOVE IT!

No lie! By far the best product. I hate makeup and being caked up. This does what it needs to, hide the unwanted marks but keep the ones you want like my freckles. So subtle and light on the face! Absolutely love it!!!
