It sounds good....

Made of only pure, crushed minerals from the earth, i.d. bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation looks like a powder, feels like a cream and buffs on like silk, giving skin a natural luminosity, and feels as if you are not wearing any makeup at all. The coverage is flawless, free of preservatives, talc, oil, waxes, fragrances, and other chemicals that can irritate skin and cause breakouts.

But is it any good?

Haven't tried that particular one, but am currently using testers of Lily Lolo, which is the same sort of thing - am v impressed. Am also impressed at the price/availability of testers on the site - v useful for deciding on colours/whether it suits you.

I've just got rid of a pot actually. It looked ok from a distance or in the evening, but in daylight it looks a bit heavy.

The colour match is good though and so is the coverage, especially for evening out skin tone.

Am using one by Loreal which is quite good but have heard that the id bare minerals is excellent. Have also tried Sheer Cover from the shopping channel which is ok if you are not heavy handed.

I'm with JackieNo. I really like the Lily Lolo mineral foundation. Get a couple of testers of different colours (they're really cheap) so you can work out what suits you best before you buy a whole pot. I reckon having the proper kabuki brush makes a difference too.
