This all-natural face makeup has been created to work for every skin type and skin tone. The formula is so pure and gentle that it functions as an oily-skin foundation, anti-ageing makeup, and makeup for sensitive skin.

Applied over your favourite moisturiser, this is a lovely makeup for dry skin too. Many medical spas recommend pure minerals such as Inika Loose Powder Foundation to wear post procedure to help diminish the appearance of blotchiness or redness. This is gentle, weightless, and pure for the ultimate in makeup perfection.

Can I use a makeup sponge or beauty blender to apply Inika Loose Mineral Foundation?

The Inika Vegan Kabuki Brush is the best tool for applying Inika Loose Mineral Foundation. The Kabuki Brush is really a loose mineral makeup essential, as it helps you get a smooth, flawless finish from a powder. Sponges work better with other types of foundation, such as creams.

beautiful coverage - 17-05-2018 by

I have been using this product for a few days now and absolutely love it. I suffer from hormonal acne and find if I wear liquid foundation to often this can cause my blemishes to become more inflamed so I decided to convert to a mineral makeup during the week and I will never go this. The coverage is perfect and I find the product stays on my skin without moving.

Converted - 08-05-2018 by

Inika was my trial in mineral makeup as well as loose foundation. I have lots of freckles and I hate the way liquid foundations take them away and made me look a little flat. I love layering this up and developing a natural look. It's strong enough to hide any pimples. It also feels lovely against the skin - soft, rather than oily.

Lovely light foundation - 08-05-2018 by

I love this foundation, it is good coverage without feeling heavy, and still lets my skin shine through. It is also great for combination skin.

Good coverage - 07-05-2018 by

This foundation doesn't tend to look caked like lots of other makeups. It has a nice matte finish and fells weightless and breathable. It last for a long time too. Great value for money.

Great mineral powder for oily skin - 16-04-2018 by

I love mineral powders as I find them so quick and easy to apply, and give a nice glow, however I usually become oily over the day. This has been the only mineral powder that keeps shine at bay over the day, is nice and natural looking while proving buildable coverage, and does not irritate my skin.

My weekend foundation - 27-03-2018 by

I LOVE this foundation. Its my weekend foundation when I want to give my skin a break from my thick liquid foundation. It doesn't even feel like im wearing foundation, yet the coverage is very good!

Great product for oily skin - 29-01-2018 by

I have oily skin and have used a range of mineral powders which tend to make my skin very oily. Inika is the best mineral powder I have ever used. I use Nurture most of the time and Trust when I have a fake tan.

Great for oily skin and all-day coverage - 18-01-2018 by

I got a sample of this foundation in Grace and I loved it. I have fair, very oily skin and found that this product provided great, all-day coverage. It didn't cause breakouts and didn't make my skin oily. I used the Inika Kabuki brush to apply and didn't have to use a primer. My only complaint is that the powder goes everywhere! I'm going to buy the baked mineral foundation to try because of this.

Everyday wear - 20-12-2017 by

This is my everyday ‘make up’, I use a mattifying primer underneath and concealer on the areas that I need extra coverage. This is a lovely product, I only wish that the sizes were more generous as it’s almost double the cost for 1/2 the qty of other comparable brands.

Best mineral powder out there! - 13-12-2017 by

I have tried so many mineral foundation powders, but this one is the best. I am very fair, with neutral undertones (but tend to have redness) and use the colour Grace. As long as I don't use too much, it doesn't go yellow, and I can achieve a very natural look. It does tend to cling to dry patches, so good skin preparation is a must. Love to use it on low key makeup days, and it lasts from dawn to dusk without the need for touch ups!

Brilliant quality and coverage - 20-08-2017 by

After years of struggling to find a powder foundation that would give me a decent coverage and not make me break out, I was recommended to try Inika and I will never use anything else again! I love the buildable coverage and the amount of shades is so helpful in finding a perfect match. But the best part is that it is 100% guilt-free!

LOVE LOVE LOVE! - 09-08-2017 by

This is my all time favourite foundation - I've been using this product for 3 years and I won't even consider trying anything else! It can be worn alone for a more natural look, or over the top of a liquid foundation to set it. It provides great coverage and is buildable, perfect for day and night. It's a beautiful fine, smooth powder with a lovely matte finish. The shades match really well and are quite forgiving. I have a fair-medium skin tone with yellow undertones and opt for 03 Unity in the Winter, and 05 Patience in the Summer. My skin is prone to congestion and this foundation doesn't upset it at all. Highly recommend!

Best mineral foundation - 04-08-2017 by

Have used this product for years and am still in love with it. Provides a flawless finish without blocking pores. Fabulous for daily use.

softest foundation - 02-08-2017 by

I love with foundation. It's so soft and goes on easily yet provides a delicate coverage. I look ridiculous when all my freckles are completely gone so this is perfect for me!

Fabulous Foundation - 22-06-2017 by

I have been using INIKA mineral powder for years. It provides good coverage without blocking pores. I had been buying it from another online store but Adore offers better discount and additional free products :)

Great powder! - 23-10-2016 by

This mineral powder is fantastic. It is great for my sensitive skin. You can build powder to the coverage you need whether is be light for everyday or heavier for night wear. Although it is a bit expensive compared to some mineral powders I would highly recommend this product.

One of THE BEST mineral foundation powders I've used out there!! - 16-05-2016 by

Decided to finally try this brand based on rave reviews with high praise on beauty blogs & forums & also published editorials in magazines.

I'm in my late 40's, with combination skin prone to acne & still suffer breakouts to this day....HELLO hormones & peri-menopause!!! This has been the BANE of my life & subsequently I have spent the majority of my life from early teens, perfecting the art of covering & masking my face with makeup. (lets not mention trying to find multiple Holy Grails of skin care products.) It has become a life quest so to speak & I have tried absolutely every possible form of foundation.

The discovery of mineral powder makeup has been my saving grace the last 10 years as it's light & doesn't feel like I have makeup on & when you find "THE ONE', or the right one, my skin feels calm & looks 'almost' flawless...(for me.)
These mineral powders have come a long way since then & I love trying new formulas as the technology improves.The BIG deal-breaker is Bismuth Oxychloride which cause cystic acne to form on my skin....Thankfully & wisely this brand does not have this horrible ingredient. It seems to have only the good stuff & my skin feels absolutely wonderful with it itchiness or flare-ups at all so far after 2 weeks of daily use.
I'm using a combo of 2 shades to best blend in with my skin tones - Truth & Nuture.
I am IN LOVE with this product & feel like I've struck the cover-up jackpot while still looking naturally glowy & allowing my skin to breathe.
I do need to mattify my T-zone every 4-5 hours with a light setting/mattifying powder, & the other tips I'll offer are; use a good primer & buff the product in with a good quality bristle kabuki style brush.
Highly impressed with this I can't believe I hadn't tried this brand.

Good for acne-prone skin - 13-07-2015 by

I have been using this for about a year and a half and it gives really great coverage considering it's an organic product! It is a little pricey but I use it almost everyday and it has lasted me some 7 months.

The positive reviews are right! - 10-07-2015 by

The girls in the office were talking about this a lot as being the most under-rated foundation we stocked, but it wasn't until Vanessa in customer service came back from Japan and mentioned that she'd been wearing Inika foundation in all her photos! I figured, I was off to Singapore & Malaysia where it was going to be humid so I should give it a go.

I LOVE this stuff! I use it without a setting powder in cooler Melbourne weather, and I used it with a setting powder in the humidity (yes, all mineral foundations should be considered a *foundation* not a powder - if you normally use a powder with your foundation you should also use a powder with these babies!). I experienced no smudging, no smearing, all day wear that looked natural.

Honestly I can't think of a way it could be improved. Natural, vegan, cruelty free, great quality, not scented... I'd recommend this to anyone.

Colour me very impressed. FYI: I use 01 - Grace, which is great for any skintones between MAC N/NC 10 - 15. I'd say this shade leans neutral rather than yellow, and I can see it working for pinker undertones too.

Lightweight but great coverage ($$$ but worth it) - 20-01-2015 by

Inika mineral foundation is lightweight, however, provides great coverage. On the expensive side, but worth it. Don't need to apply a lot so it lasts. It is long wearing even on really hot, humid days. I have had much fewer breakouts since using it and it is definitely the best mineral foundation powder I have used (and I have tried loads). Best of all, it is completely animal cruelty free!

Worth the money, great for your skin! - 07-10-2014 by

This foundation is incredibly light but gives fantastic coverage and it smells amazing! I trialed this product after being recommended by my skin therapist, and I haven't looked back. My pores are visibly smaller and the make up lasts all day and doesn't budge!

I was recommended to get Nurture, but when I received it I knew that it would be way too light for me so I exchanged it for Trust. I have a medium skin tone; I used to use MAC studio fix fluid NC25 and also Nude by Nature powder foundation in medium. Nurture is far too light for me and does not match the olive undertones in my skin. If you are even mildly olive (like me) I would recommend going with a darker shade such as Trust or Freedom.

Great product. - 20-09-2014 by

I have been using this product for a couple of years and find that it gives a great natural look.

My fair lady - 13-09-2014 by

I apply using Inika's Kabuki brush everyday. It is effortless for a fresh daytime look. I'm fair and I use Grace.

Love Inika products - completely animal friendly (vegan) - 18-08-2014 by

I love this mineral foundation, it's light, leaves a great coverage, lasts for quite a while. I won't buy anything else. The brand line is great. Can't wait to buy more.

Great product! - 15-08-2014 by

This is my favourite foundation. I also love that it is a vegan brand. Great coverage and the product lasts for a long time.

Great quality organic product - 31-07-2014 by

I love Inika Mineral Foundation and have been using it for over a year now. It's great to use when I'm after a natural look for during the day or at work. If you have oily or combination skin, it helps to have blotting paper handy as you can get a bit shiny by the end of the day. That said, it feels nice and light on my skin and comes off easily for me with only a cleanser.

I think Inika is well priced considering it is 100% natural, organic, ethically produced and a vegan product.

I love Inika foundation - 20-07-2014 by

I've been using Inika foundation for about 8yrs. It gives good coverage, feels light on my skin, fabulous on hot days, easy to remove. It has never upset my sensative skin, other "natural" foundations had become a problem. I had trouble getting Inika when I moved to WA and tried a coulpe other brands of reputable mineral foundations, they ended up in the bin. I'm happily buying Inika on line.

Fantastic product! - 05-10-2013 by

I've been using this product for about 2 years now and am very happy with it. I have quite sensitive skin and I'm also pale, so it can be very hard to find a shade that suits me and that doesn't irritate my skin. I've used a lot of cosmetic brands and a lot either irritated my skin or made my skin break out. This product has been wonderful for my skin. It lasts for months, because you only need a bit to cover your face and it hides red marks, blemishes, etc, really well. It also looks very natural, which is great. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Amazing product! - 24-09-2013 by

I have been using inika products for 2 years now. I first started using this product because it is 100% natural! It is fantastic for all skin types and doesn't cause breakouts. The coverage is great and can be used as a concealer. I recommend this product to anyone!

Great product - 09-09-2013 by

The coverage is great and nice on my skin. Great as a cocealer powder anf foundation powder in one. I think more product could be included for the price, however thats my only con.

A Quality Mineral Powder - 14-07-2013 by

This is the only mineral makeup I use as the quality of ingredients is excellent. This website offers the best price on this product too. The coverage is quite good although I also need to supplement a tinted moisturiser because I have a fair few acne scars on my face. The only thing I find I need to compensate for is the coverage on my oily areas (at the end of the day I have noticed that the powder will look like it is kind of sitting on top of those zones rather than blended into my skin). Definitely still recommend this product though.

NIce product - 02-07-2013 by

I have been using Inika Mineral Foundation for some years now. It was the first mineral foundation I had tried and I was immediately a fan. Just to be sure, I tried a couple of other brands but came back to Inika quickly. I like skin products which are kind to my skin as well as the environment (and animals) and Inika certainly meets this criteria. I use the product every day and find that it is good value.

Absolutely wonderful to wear everyday! - 01-01-2013 by

I have been using this product every day for over a year. My skin is very sensitive & I have no irritation at all. It is also the best sunscreen!! I have not been sunburnt on my face since using it. The coverage can be built up to suit. I would recommend using a primer underneath to give better staying power & even coverage but this is a fault if the product. Have been asked what I use & recommended to everyone.

Everything a girl could want in a foundation. - 05-12-2012 by

This foundation is by far the best i have ever tried, and trust me thats a few different brands.
In my opinion you pay for what you get. This product however you pay for what you get and more! It feels amazing on your face like your not wearing any makeup at all! You can have a light coverage or build it up as much as you like, and it will never look cakey. Its amazing i cant get over how natural it looks even when a lot of it is applied! It has great coverage and It lasts quite a while. Definitely worth the purchase! I have acne scarred skin prone to the occasional breakout and this foundation covers it right up! For all those girls out there not knowing which colour to purchase Ive always had beige and ivory foundations or powders and bought the lightest shade in this range and its perfect! This is called Grace. Go buy it girls!!!

Best Mineral Make-up Ever! - 28-11-2012 by

Over the last couple of years I have tried going as natural as possible when it comes to skin care and make-up. It was a tough search - I didn't want to give up on makeup all together and still wanted to half decent when I went out... I've tried a few different products and while some were alright, they didn't stand up to the Inika mineral foundation powder. It made my skin look radiant and was so simple and fast to apply! I feel good about what I'm putting on my skin and also when I look in the mirror. It's a win/win!

Gorgeous - 26-10-2012 by

This product has convinced me to change from using Chanel make up exclusively to Inika. The products are high quality, natural, mostly organic, vegan and they actually care for your skin. I haven't had one break out since I began using Inika and my skin is very sensitive/reactive. I would highly recommend these products. The powder is easy to use, easy to layer for more converage, doesn't feel dry and doesn't irritate. I'm in love.

Amazing product - 29-01-2012 by

This foundation is amazing. It gives really great coverage and doesn't look or feel like you have any makeup on at all. Great at covering up any redness or uneven skintone, and the concealer can be used along with the foundation to really give a great, even coverage.

Inika Mineral Make-up - 03-10-2011 by

Love this product! I have been using it for over a year now and it is fabulous for coverage. I am 58 years old and have fair sensitive skin and this product is so easy to use. I have tried 2 other brands of mineral make-up and this is the best. The texture is softer and it provides an illuminated finish. I also have the eye shadows, blush and lip pecil and they are all top quality.

- 14-07-2010 by

I'm 51 and my skin is a little dry with a few broken capillaries, so I wanted coverage with a natural look. Unfortunately, when used as a powder this product makes my dry patches flake up, BUT Inika say you can mix their mineral powders with a little moisturiser to make a cream if you have dry skin (as long as the moisturiser isn't silicon-based). So, I mix a little bit with either my Clarins Gentle Day Cream or Invisible Zinc Environmental and - no more dry patches! I still need to moisturise first and then apply. You can still build coverage by adding a little more powder over spots, etc. I have also used their eyeliners (sublime), lipstick (great coverage and so moist), eyeshadows (truly gorgeous) and I'm looking forward to trying the blusher and eyebrown pencil. I like the packaging. It may be simple, but the jar is quality - not flimsy - and easy to get at the product. But, best of all - it's organic and no animal testing. Okay, I admit it - I'm a fan!

- 05-07-2010 by

I am pretty much a mineral makeup junkie. This one was found in my hunt for a truly superior mineral makeup- not just natural, but with pure and organic ingredients, and without some of the cheap and nasty 'naturals' I have had brushes with along my way. (Bismuth and Isopropyl Myristate- you know who you are!:) This one is fab. I can't say it any other way. My fave mineral makeup for the finished visual effect and coverage to date was Laura Mercier- so this was what I was looking to top. The best part is, not only does it top it- but it doesn't feel or look thick, my skin feels naked:) I haven't had any transference with this product onto clothes or boyfriends cheek etc which is interesting, because I did with all the one's I had used previously. My shine (oily skinned gal) is minimal- I am blotting/buffing 2-3 times max all day, and even then it's not noticeable, just me being perfectionist. It does do the colour adjusting to a degree, which I have never had with a makeup before, so I am impressed with that. It won't leap shades, but will adjust within one I would say. Easy to apply, very long lasting. And also the first tear proof one- no white tracks down my cheeks! Maybe it's waterproof? Will find out in Summer. Medium coverage- you don't need concealer unless you have some heavy duty stuff to cover. So to be more specific- it covers, looks polished, but like it's your skin-but better! Usually I find 'full coverage' looks fake and unnatural, like a mask- you KNOW looking straight away there is a lot of makeup and that that's why it looks too perfect. It depends which effect you want. This is perfect "I hate that her" skin:) The packaging is uninspired and a little pricey for something that's Australian made-if they lowered it by $10 I'd feel that would be the right price. It's a little cheeky when you consider there's no importing OR nice packaging costs- the jar is AS basic as you can get. You get a good amount. I can see it lasting me 3-4 months, and I wear it everyday. Has a slight shimmer which buffs in and gives more of a faux glow effect which looks radiant. (and natural- not glittery) Love that it's organic- and no nano or micronised particles! Haven't tried their primer, but LOVE their eyeshadows. Absolutely recommend for oily skin gals, or combo or sensitive. Dry I can't give a proper opinion- but it is creamy, and while I was sick and my nose was dry it didn't emphasize it once I had put a light moisturizer on the area. The clincher was wearing this in China recently on a business trip- it was SO sweaty and humid- NO SHINE AT ALL! Even less then being back in Australia! Go figure!:)

- 25-03-2010 by

My first time using mineral foundation and was interested in trying a more natural product. Because it is a powder it feels and looks a bit drier (my skin is dry) even with the inika primer, i also use my zinc sunscreen which is quite thick to get a good base to layer the foundation on. You can build coverage and it is very easy to use (apply like a powder). I'm not sure what other mineral formulations like but i imagine they are all a bit dry looking. My only concern is that I like the idea of mineral products but given they are natural I think they should be more affordable and I"m not sure how much they differ between each other (might be my ignorance). The starter kit is quite pricey to try it out, recommend a sample if you can get it in case you find it a bit dry. Overall good natural product if you like mineral/powder type foundation give it a try.
