The only reason I dont like this product is the case! The sides of the powder kept cracking & kept coming loose & only after 3 uses. ...My holy grail powder foundation. My 47 year old skin doesn't like liquid foundations anymore so I switched to powder and wear this as my only foundation.

Wander BeautyWanderlust Powder Foundation

Color: Golden Medium - medium tan with warm golden undertones

284 Reviews


It makes a huge mess but there's so much product left that I dump all the cracked pieces in a cup and use it like a loose powder foundation. If you're okay with that headache, I'd still recommend the powder, hate the packaging...It arrived already covered in fingerprints & with the powder crumbling. I tapped my flat foundation brush on it, and shattered the powder so much I ended up pulverizing the rest to try and use as loose powder.

Yes! Yes! This setting powder does everything it says. It covers so well, I often use it as a loose powder when I want to rock that “no makeup” look. ...Open carefully and don't dip you sponge because you'll loose 0.5g of product. Beyond upset! The foundation leaves a dewy look and then the powder sets matte which takes away the purpose of the foundation.

Love this product!
