Best I’ve found!
I’ve tried RMS beauty’s loose powder and it does not compare. Well ppl have a superior product. It flawlessly coves over their foundation stick. Looks perfect and airbrushed! It has been a challenge to switch to cleaner beauty but I’ve been so happy with all the foundation products I’ve tried.

Way too orange
I got a sample. Thank goodness that I did. The powder made me look like I got a horrible spray tan. And don’t buy into their “samples” smallest piece of nothing.

Wonderful Coverage!
This is the lightest feeling powder foundation I have used and it also has the most coverage! I love that I know the ingredients are good for my skin so I feel great about using it! This is my new go-to powder foundation.

Great powder
I recently bought this as I was looking for a new powder with SPF. I love that it has sun protection, is non-toxic, and it gives a good finish to my makeup. I also have noticed that my face seems less oily by the end of the day. Love it!

Not Enough Colors
Another product where the color left my olive biracial skin too white. Improve the color matches. There are a ton of people out there with lot's of skin tones, many have skin tones darker than mine; not sure how they would find a color match here. Disappointed, as looking for a natural product for everyday use; as my eyes have bad allergies. :(

Great coverage, feels so light!
The Altruist Foundation Powder is the best mineral foundation powder on the market! It makes my skin look flawless and I constantly get compliments on my makeup and my skin. I am so happy knowing that I am using a product that is good for my skin and provides benefits.

Great product, good coverage
Light buildable powder, I use it over a DD cream organic tinted sunscreen which leaves my face somewhat shiny. This mutes the shine without completely mattyifing my face. It looks very natural and smooths out my skin tone. I love it as a light foundation. It doesn't look or feel cakey at all, but if you need extra coverage just add a little water and dab onto area that needs concealed and this will do the trick.

The ingredients
Chris W on Mar 17, 2019
Suggested to use under "Narcissist Foundation Stick" for better coverage. A little nervous if I might react to minerals? Highly rated/ recommended actually clean make up! Otherwise, there is nothing in it I might be sensitive to which are in most of your face, eye, lip and cheek products. like coconut oil or derivatives, chamomile, sandalwood, limonene, linalool, olive leaf, lanolin, or frankincense.
J. N on Mar 17, 2019
Love the coverage, and it doesn't clog my pores! I just wish the concealer and foundation stick didn't clog pores as well - I'd love additional coverage some days, but have to go elsewhere!

I like the fact that it's a natural product. I mix two colors together to capture my skin tone and lightly brush the powder foundation on. The coverage is excellent! It looks flawless. Thank you so much for such a great product.

Altruist Foundation Powder is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 110.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mineral powder I love this mineral powder, it makes my skin glow! I am saddened to hear, though,that they will be discontinuing this as they are reformulating it. It will now contain SPF which is not my favorite thing to add to makeup since it makes your skin appear white in photos. I will continue to buy W3ll people makeup anyways because I love all of their stuff! I have been using their products for about 6 months now, and in that timespan, so many people have complimented me on my skin and even said how youthful I look. I am 29 years old, but many people think I am around 21. I credit W3ll people for their natural, organic products for allowing my skin to look so good!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from didn't love it I tried a sample of this before buying the full size and I'm really glad I did. The Pros: Covered well Felt light on my skin The cons: Made my face itch like crazy! I can't comment on how long lasting it is because in had to wash it off almost immediately. I was so bummed because I love the idea that there are no nasty chemicals to worry about but even so, there was something in this that I was very sensitive to. It did go on nicely with a buki brush and there was good, even coverage. It made my face look smoother and it really evened out my skin tone. Its too bad about the itching. I think I could have loved it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New ingredients are less than ideal I used to LOVE this foundation powder before they changed the ingredients. I've been loyal for years. It was out of stock for months so I anxiously waited to get more of my favorite make-up. Now that it's back in stock and they changed the ingredients (now including a coconut derived ingredient), it's no good. It's making people break out, itch, turn red, etc. I've talked to five different people and they all had issues with it. Luckily, I got a little patch test done and a sample but within minutes of application, I had an itchy face and was sneezing. It's a shame so many people, even employees of the store, can't use the product. I speak for many loyal customers when I say: Go back to the old ingredients, W3ll People!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formula is AWFUL! I have loved this foundation for the past two years, but the new formula is awful. I am so saddened by this. The "fair pink" used to be a perfect match for a fair, pink complexion, but the new powder is orange. BRIGHT ORANGE. It comes off easily and has stained some of my clothes orange. The coverage isn't as even or long-lasting as before. And it's making me breakout, which never happened before. I'm so sad to say I will not be re-buying this. It took me such a long time to find a powder that worked for my skin, and I was singing WELL People's praises to everyone I knew-- why did you change it if it wasn't broke? Time to start my long search over again. So disappointing :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So Sad old formula was better So sad I still can't find a powder foundation that I like as much as the old formula. I was a loyal customer for many years and used altruist 15, but now the new formula gives me allergies and is ORANGE, it isn't a slight shade variation but a total deviation from the previous shade. What I liked most about this powder foundation was the polished finish while it felt healthy and light on my face. The old formula had a great shade matching and many of my friends used to use it. Now with the new formula, a lot of them have discontinued its use . I wish they had an option to buy the old formula.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Long time customer I am so disappointed in the change in the formulas of the Well People make-up. I am 53 and have been a loyal customer of a Well People for over three years. I've gotten so many compliments on my complexion over that time. Right away my skin broke out with the new formula and I have spent a great deal of time and money going to the dermatologist to get it healed. I cannot use the new formula and miss the old formula. Can you change back, or have both. Seriously, it doesn't appear to be working out for your customers in general. Loyal in Austin, TX.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coverage! The best foundation powder out there! I have had acne for over 20 years so I was always searching for a foundation or powder that could cover my problem skin and not irritate it. I apply it before my oil mositurizer is completely set so it makes it more into a foundation. However, you can control the coverage by gently buffing it into your skin. You can smelll the chamomile in it that ACTUALLY helps calm and heal your skin even at its worst. Usually, I would be dying to get home and wash my face to rid the foundation but my skin actually feels better with the powder on. I can't imagine using any other makeup. TRY IT NOW!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Go back to the original formula! Last year I was relieved to finally find this foundation. I had been searching for mineral foundation that felt good on my skin and actually worked. I've never had any allergy issues with this makeup. (No itching, no dry feeling, no chalkiness, etc.) Until now. W3ll People reformulated this foundation. (But why?!) I just received my first shipment of the new formula and hate it. As soon as I applied it I noticed a difference in the way it felt on my skin. It is extremely drying and feels very chalky. I can see every line on my face now. And after about five minutes, the itchiness is skin is crawling. My face feels stripped of all moisture and I can't wait to get home and wash it off. Why would you change such an amazing product? Last year when I found this foundation, it truly was the first one I found that is safe and natural that I LOVED. But not anymore. I'm afraid I may have to return this altogether. I don't know how I can get around this itching. :(
