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.

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!

Altruist Foundation Powder SPF 15 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 110.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why did you change the formula?! I used to love your altruist foundation. I have oily and extremely sensitive skin and it made my skin look beautiful and felt so light and soothing. It was perfect! The new formula left my skin feeling smothered, itching, broken out in acne and a red rash. Plus the color was all wrong. Very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good natural looking I got a small sample and figured I'd try as a finishing powder well I'm 71 and last night I went out with a full makeup face! I looked in my car mirror and wow I looked so darn old !! So today I moisterized after using my potions of the ordinary and decided to try the mineral,powder (years ago I stopped using bare minerals as it stuck in,my wrinkles ) well to my surprise as little of a sample that I got this looks great!! I use the Wayne G air brush and I'm amazed! Just a little Leary as other websites people say you get very little product....I'm going to try this though

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Review I've used this for about a week and it seems to not like my skin. It made me break out. I was hopeful and I'm sure it is not the same for all skin types, but it's a no go for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a natural look! I love my W3ll People Altruist Foundation Powder! I use a combo of shades 13 and 14 that I blend based on the season. This foundation gives a sheer medium coverage look without being too thick or heavy. When applied properly this foundation can last hours in extremely humid conditions! I always start with sunscreen and then a primer for my base, then apply the foundation using a kabuki brush and finish with a setting spray. I recently attended an outdoor wedding in Hawai'i and 8 hours, of dancing, drinking and sweating, later my foundation still looked flawless!! I know what brand I'll be wearing at my wedding :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Powder I get an oily T-zone and have preferred a matte finish in the past. Since using this powder, I've been getting so many compliments on my skin, which hasn't happened in a long time. It looks hydrated and healthy. My cheeks get pretty red and I feel like the aloe in this has been calming that redness down, even when I take the makeup off. I get a little oily towards the end of the night, but I rarely need touch-ups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I've been using the Altruist Foundation Powder for a couple of weeks now and I'm really happy with it. The color is perfect. It gives light to medium coverage, and I feel that this level of coverage is fine for me. Though I am used to heavier coverage with my old foundation powder, which I was happy with, aside from the fact that I think they test on animals -- that's why I stopped using it. Anyway, I think with a little more time I will get used to the lighter coverage. This, and the bio brightener powder, is my first purchase from W3ll People, and I look forward to doing more business here in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I will stop buying Unfortunately the new formula changed the colors that I have been wearing for the last couple of years. It is darker and more orange. The company should have let consumers know that adding SPF resulted in a change of color and not marketed the same shade. Too bad I really liked the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HEARTBROKEN over change :( I've been a faithful customer to W3llpeople for a few years now; after much research, trying to find a decent organic makeup, this won with flying colors. I loved how I could sample things to find what worked for me. The powder was effortless; never looked heavy or cakey, covered so naturally and nicely. The color (Altruist 15) was perfect on my skin. I raved about my perfect organic makeup line! The re-formaulation is one of those "too bad" moments in life where a company stops making something you love :( The new formula is not a natural/correct color on my face. The coverage is terrible, just looks like a weird painty-shade over flaws. Doesn't mask anything. The texture is different- almost moist. It's terrible. And in photos your face looks patchy and discolored, which is miserable. The new packaging is silly too.... I see the point, with the slits and the blank side, but it all just spills out everywhere anyway so it doesn't matter much. I loved my routine so much. I feel like I have to go back to Maybeline, and in turn, feel like I'm hurting my skin. I'm so sad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shades Beware! The shades in the new formula do not match! I where the fair pink and the new formula made me look orange...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing product I used to use bare minerals but I am absolutely in love with this product. It is weightless on my skin and the color blends perfectly. I have a fair olive skin tone and the golden fair works perfectly. I highly recommend! I will not be buying any other makeup for my face ever again ;)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shade Changed With New Formula I have been buying this product for a while and was disappointed last year when the product was out of stock for several months. When the new formula became available, I ordered 2 of my normal shade, light neutral. Unfortunately, this shade has changed. It is much darker than it used to be. People keep telling me that I look like have been tanning. I like the texture of the new formula. I actually find it easier to apply than the previous formula. I'm just disappointed that the colors have changed and that I am now forced to buy a different shade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I only use W3ll People products now and love them! I have combination skin and was prone to breakouts. Once I switched to W3ll People my skin cleared up and felt great. The foundation powder feels light weight yet has great coverage. I would recommend this product and line to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well & Light Coverage I've never been big on heavy make up and most powders and foundations will dry my skin out. This powder works well and offers light to medium coverage depending on how much you want to use. My skin is dry but is also acne prone and I fee like this powder doesn't ever add to my breakouts. I recommend this product to all my friends and now my mom is even a fan and regular customer.
Date published: 2017-05-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage! I bought this while in Austin over the summer and love the coverage this foundation has. When my skin is dry, powder doesn't look good on my skin. I was given the tip to spray my face after applying this powder with a light mist or spritzer and it releases the dried aloe in this product. It was visibly noticeable and found with winter coming that this step is essential.
Date published: 2016-10-01
Rated 2 out of 5 by from So sad! I used to LOVE this powder foundation, but they changed the formula and now it's completely different. I have super pale skin (I'm a redhead) and always order the fair pink shade, and it was the perfect shade for my cool toned skin. It also used to cover up blemishes very well without getting cakey or looking slightly orange, which is a problem I have with a lot of foundations that claim to be for pale skin tones. I ordered this product again but this time with the changed formula (still the fair pink shade) and it has a weird orange tint. It barely covers up my imperfections and now it seems only good for using it as a very ultra sheer powder. The more that I try to use on my face the more orange it becomes, so I can't add a little extra on a blemish because it doesn't even hide it. Please bring back the old forumula! I wish I didn't have to go search all over again for a healthy, affordable foundation that works for my skin color! :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have tried many mineral foundations... For years I used Estee Lauder Double Wear Mineral Foundation but it has been discontinued. Since then I have been searching for a comparable product. The W3ll People mineral makeup is the best option out there. The coverage is good and lasts most of the day. It doesn't melt onto your face like Joppa Mineral Foundaton. It doesn't settle into your creases like others do. My face has not broken out whatsoever which is a big deal because my adult acne is the reason I have to use mineral makeup in the first place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found it I have been looking for a foundation powder for years. I have tried it all and while I have been using the same mineral powder for years, I still wasn't as happy as I should be. My daughter showed me Altruist and I fell in love with it. I'm 57 years old and I have finally, after years of searching, found the one that I will stick with..!! Every one that I have tried has advertised as "being the best at this or being the best at that". I am excited to have found the one that is "the best at all of it."

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formula is disappointing I was reaching the end of my Altruist Foundation (original formulation) a little over a month ago. I had been so happy with it, I wanted to have more on hand when I ran out, so I ordered a new container. I saw that the formula had changed, but the name and color where still the same, "altruist 15 medium neutral", so I figured I should just order the same color. Yesterday I finally ran out of my original formula and tried the new one. It is very disappointing. The new formula leaves an unflattering orange cast. It also doesn't cover nearly as well and seems to accentuate lines more. I have a lot of redness around my nose, and the old formula was FANTASTIC at covering this up and LASTING all day. The old formula also photographed beautifully and felt great all day long. I loved that I could just wear it alone and not have a million steps to making my skin look flawless. It even made me look great when I hadn't slept for days because of my newborn, something a new mom can really appreciate when she needs a little confidence boost, but has zero time. This new formula does little to nothing in terms of evening me out and covering up. With the old formula, the coverage was enough that I felt I didn't need concealer. I would always get compliments on my skin, and would recommend WELL People for their powder foundation. Now I am sad to say I would not recommend the Altruist Foundation. I am very happy with the other WELL People products I use (nudist multi use cream, and bio-correct concealer). This new version of Altruist just really missed the mark for me and is extra disappointing because it used to be such a go to product for me. What WELL People is doing in the makeup industry overall is great. I wrote this review for others like me who are making the switch from the old formula to the new, and want to know how they differ.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for a redhead! I purchased this based on reviews from my sister. I am a fair skinned, red head and altruist 11 is perfect on my skin. I am sensitive to many foundation powders but the natural ingredients in this has not irritated my skin. No cakey feeling and isn't too heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I love the Altruist 17. It works post-beach trip. It works in the dead of winter. It's weightless yet provides a flawless everyday base layer. I highly recommend this product for those that want to wear makeup without looking like they are wearing makeup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Invisible on skin I bought this about a week ago and I am in love with this powder. It is exactly the dupe for the powder by la mer which costs about 130$. This is exactly that but better because of the clean ingredients with no talc. My holy grail powder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I was hesitant to use the new formula dice the color I used to use was discontinued. However, I found a new color that works. I hate the plastic piece in the middle of the jar though- my brush doesn't fit inside anymore

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luminous, great coverage I bought this a few weeks ago to replace my Alima Pure mineral powder foundation after trying a sample. I alternate between this and the Narcissist stick foundation, depending on the day and my skin's dryness, etc. I find that this gives more coverage than the Alima and also has a smoother look (I have pretty dry, sensitive skin). Love all the WP products I've tried so far and this is no exception! Also, customer service was speedy and very helpful with an order mix-up. Highly recommend!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I really really wanted this to work! I bought the powder in number 13 and I assumed it was a neutral however it is very very yellow. Sad because I love the fact that it does not contain harmful ingredients.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It oxidized on me I love the stick foundation, the stick blushes and have not had any problems. This oxidized and just got darker as the day went on. It made my face look dirty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good finishing powder I have been using Bare Minerals in the past but wanted to change to a more natural solution. I ordered two samples of two different shades to find out which one was the best for me. I think I like the darker color better and would definitely recommend to try first. The powder is nice but seems a little to 'thick' in a way that it doesn't apply as fine as I want it to. I will still buy the full size once I have made up my mind on the color. Its a great natural solution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great powder foundation! I have worn a lot of powder mineral foundations over the years, from big name brands to tiny indie company ones, and the Altruist is right up there with the ones I love best. It looks very natural on, doesn't itch, doesn't cake up or settle in lines. The fair pink color is a great match for me- I do wish it came in more shades though, I can imagine it's hard for some. It's also very affordable compared to so e of the higher end brands I've been buying. Will repurchase!
