Origins Brighter By Nature SPF 30 Skin Tone Correcting Makeup 10g
Didn't live up to expectations.
I bought this in Very Light-Cool and the colour matched my skin very well. I applied it with a brush rather than the sponge supplied, and at first it looks natural - there's a slight sheen to it and it gives a light-medium coverage. However, I chose this make up because it claims to hide dark spots: it does reduce the appearance of them a little, but no more than any other foundation, so I was very disappointed to have spent more money to achieve the same results as I do with other make up. Also, within an hour or two it looks quite greasy and a bit melted in some places. I won't buy this again.

I use shade 05 Light/Medium-Warm which is a pretty good match to my skintone; they have a fair array of shades that I would imagine most people would find a match.
My main reasons for trying this foundation was for the spf and it is oil/talc free which are great selling points but the product just does not perform as well as it should for this price tag. I use a kabuki brush and have to build up 3 layers on top of my tinted moisturiser to get anything approaching medium coverage and it's staying power leaves a lot to be desired, I end up with a greasy t-zone within a couple of hours of wear which hasn't happened with any previous foundation.

Best foundation ever! Honestly read on....
I used to use Origins Mineral powder and loved it. I was gutted when they replaced it with this version, but now I'm very happy because it's even better! This gives a natural coverage which you can build up in places you need it.
It Gives your skin a lovely dewy youthful look, and is SPF 30 too,
I am 42 and so my skin is ageing, but this amazing powder does not dry and flake or settle in places it shouldn't. I would definitely recommend this product for any age or skin type. Masses of colours to choose from too!
I personally found its lighter than the shades look on the colour swatches. Oh, and get a synthetic brush to apply, didn't like th spong that it came with at all.
I'm not sure why these other people didn't like this product, but a good tip is you can go to the origins USA web site and they have live text chat with someone who knows the products, they helped me choose the right shade, and they were bang on!
