Honeybee Gardens Pressed Mineral Powder Geisha -- 0.26 oz
Feels like you are wearing nothing
This makeup goes on smoothly, I like to use a make-up sponge. It provides good coverage that isn't noticeable as makeup. Lightweight, non-greasy. Would buy again. It doesn't make me break out as do other chemically-ridden foundations/powders.

High Quality Pressed Powder
I'm normally a Laura Mercier user, and this powder is comparable in my opinion. It's very rich, almost creamy, and has great coverage for a pressed powder. This is NOT foundation, but a pressed powder, meaning it's used to SET your foundation and touch up shine during the day.
Now the shade.....Geisha is just that: Geisha light. I have fair skin (not Nicole Kidman fair, but still fair to light) and Geisha does apply lighter than in looks in the compact, and is a bit too light for me. So I prefer to apply with a brush for lighter coverage. If I use a sponge it looks much lighter and doesn't match the skin on my neck or chest. I will finish using Geisha, but will try Supernatural next.
About the compact....instead of buying the HBG compact, I removed out the powder pan from my used up Laura Mercier compact and this one fit right in (I believe this is a standard-size square compact). If I like Supernatural, I will eventually buy the HBG compact b/c it has the separate compartment for the puff, which I like. I do recommend this pressed powder and I love the fact that it has no dangerous/toxic ingredients. The low price is another incentive to try this.....

love that it is natural
good coverage, very matte, gentle, but cakes up in fine lines.

This foundation feels great on, provides great coverage and blends wonderfully with my skin tone. I feel like Im going out with no make up at all but my skin looks awesome! Only thing is I find it runs out pretty quickly! This size lasts me about 6 weeks. But the price is right so I cant complain. Love it! :)

Honeybee Mineral Foundation is Fabulous!
Although the name "Geisha", should have given the color away, I was attempting to match my fair skin. However, I use it for highlights and am quite happy I purchased it accidentally.
Nice consistency, lasts a long time, easy to apply, soft, subtle... It is everything a mineral foundation should be at a very great price!
