First can I even just say that I feel very luxurious carrying around this powder compact, as it is not your typical “silver” compact, but instead it is gold. Gold my friends. I look like a high end, high style classy girl from the mountains.

I’m not being smug, I just love how from the minute you open the package, it makes you feel like you are indulging into something special. Like you are treating and pampering yourself, as you should be.

The PurePressed Base is a mineral concealer, foundation, powder and sunscreen all in one. I received mine in Warm Sienna, which is a warm tone. The compact comes with a puff to apply the powder, but I have been using a facial brush and this puff interchangably.

There is no talc, oil, FD&C dyes or parabens in the powder. It is light and clean feeling. I am a fan of any powder that can matte my face without somehow contributing to its shine somewhere down the line. Most pressed powder compacts are known to contain oils to hold them together, but somehow jane iredale figured out a way to leave the oil out…and my skin thanks her.
