I have a light/med Olive tone to my skin. At first I thought this color might be a little too dark. Then I realized that this color was a perfect match. I was used to using a color that was too light before in those "Other" brands. So I love Luminous. I never had good luck with mineral powders before either. Until I tried this one. So I will keep on using Honeybee Gardens everything. This powder doesn't cake, it doesn't settle into lines, and is the best. Thank you Honeybee Gardens for making an awesome and healthy mineral powder! Did I mention that it lasts all day too? As well as makes my skin look flawless? Gina Bird

i have very sensitive skin so i gave up on make up all together but, since i work outside i feel like i need to protect my skin better than i have been. HBG was highly recommended by a cosmetologist friend. it actually makes my skin feel less greasy during the day than anything else i ever used. it's very light coverage and i feel good about not using any harsh chemicals on my face. you won't be disappointed. the best part is the price.

The pressed mineral powder foundation has been my favorite for the last 5 years. I have problem skin and it is gentle and doesn't clog pores like other foundations. Cheers to Honeybee!

Like this company's customer service this product goes above and beyond! Light to med coverage, builds well, color selection is excellent! Compares and surpasses many high end organic brands.

I love the pressed mineral powder. It stands up against the expensive brands and then bypasses them as far as quality and price. I have NEVER used mineral make up until trying honeybee gardens products and one other "high end" name brand and honeybee knocked my socks off. I literally took all my samples to my friends and family to try I was so impressed. I have sensitive skin that is always breaking out for one reason or another and I fight with my pores. This foundation does wonders for nearly flawless coverage. I use multiple colors of the mineral powder to build my coverage and it is far from cakey. Only downside...if your skin is dry even under moisturizer then the powder kind of sticks to skin flakes.

I had a severe case of Rosacea and needed to find a natural mineral make-up to replace my normal liquid drugstore foundations. I have naturally oily skin and am very fair with reddish hair. I've been using a combo or Geisha and Avignon for quite a while and love them! I don't look oily and the coverage is excellent! I also discovered a secret to extend the use. Sometimes it's difficult to use the last bits on the sides of the metal tin, but you can easily chip it out and mix with a little bit of rubbing alcohol and put back in tin to use the final bits. I love this product and would never consider going back to any other product. I am in my 50's and have used a ton of different foundations. This is the best!

I first purchased this product in Geisha about a year ago on a whim because I was looking for a more natural alternative to the usual "drugstore brand" of pressed powders, and I am so glad I did! This has been my favorite face powder ever since.
To my surprise this natural powder out-performs any other brand I've ever used. It provides light-to-medium coverage that applies evenly, blends nicely, is long-lasting with minimal touchups for my oily skin, builds nicely for more coverage without caking or settling into fine lines, and provides a fresh, natural look. The powder tin comes in a small plastic container so I recommend purchasing the reusable and refillable HBG compact; it protects the product and is much better for keeping in your purse (not to mention less packaging and waste!).
The consistency is a bit softer than a non-natural alternative, but that's not a big deal; just remember to use a gentle hand to prevent breaking or crumbling. I quickly learned that a little bit of this powder goes a long way when applied with a makeup brush (I use Eco Tools). Natural products generally have a softer consistency than their standard brand counterparts so keep this in mind.
My skin tone is cool and fair with yellow undertones. Geisha is the lightest shade available and it works well for me. I have also tried Supernatural, which is described as "pale to light neutral" on the HBG website. In my opinion, the differences between the two shades are negligible. Supernatural is ever so slightly more pigmented than Geisha. I have noticed that the consistency of Supernatural is softer than Geisha. Again, not a big deal to me as I haven't had any major problems yet with breakage.
(TIP: If you're not sure which shade is right for you, I suggest Googling swatches online as the ones provided are not very accurate. HBG offers samples via their website if you want to try before you buy.)

I've used pressed powder foundation in the past and wasn't happy with it. Your foundation goes on nice and doesn't look like powder. Love this product...

I have never reviewed a cosmetic before, but I really like this foundation. I have fair skin, but it is oily with areas of redness. I use Geisha, which is a shade lighter than my skin tone, for a base, then apply Avignon which matches my skin tone. Dust with a finishing powder and my skin looks great and really natural, not chalky or made up (hard to accomplish when you have 50-year-old fair skin). Also helps control shine. It comes in a shallow plastic container and that's fine for the set I keep on my vanity, but I bought compacts for the set I travel with, and I recommend that for ease of use and to protect the contents from crumbling. I also like that it has no strong smell; I tried another product that smelled so strongly of roses that my eyes burned and watered the one time I wore it.

I have been experimenting with a lot of organic, chemical free beauty products and the problem with most of them is that they provide zero coverage. It's like you're wearing no make up at all. This product on the other hand feels very light but actually helps cover the blemishes and even out the skin tone like regular make up. This is the third or fourth time I've bought it!
