Does anyone have any experience with Jane Iredale's makeup line?

I do. I did not like it for me. If you have experience with mineral makeup, and like it, Jane Iredale is a good brand...I got it at the aesthetics dept of a dermatologist.
I am older, but don't have many wrinkles. I thought the makeup made my face look very dry..as if caked with too much powder.
Another thing I didn't like is that it stained wash cloths really bad. I know plenty of people like mineral makeup, but I didn't like it on me.

I tried Jane Iredale too and loved her color range (warm silk was a perfect match). However my skin did not it because I discovered after trying Iredale and six other brands of mineral makeup I'm allergic to high amounts of titanium dioxide which every mineral brand has to my knowledge.

The coverage is light but buildable however if you need some coverage you still will need a concealer. If you're skin is dry, you need to moisturize well before applying. I've found in my many years of using powders that a good high quality foundation brush (Sephora makes a great one - the Platinum) is the way to go for a beautiful airbrushed look. Jane Iredale used to have a chemical called Bismuth - something (if anyone knows the full name please feel free to chime in). It can be very irritating to sensitive skin but they've since taken it OUT of the line.

Many people (including my sister who has used it for years) have had great luck with Jane Iredale. Here are some reviews:

I so wanted Jane Iredale to work for me since it gave me a beautiful, natural finish. Definitely check it out.

I am a user of Jane Iredale pressed mineral foundation and blush. The warm silk foundation is my perfect match (I'm a fair redhead). I tend to have oily skin and find that it stays put well and doesn't get too cakey. I do moisturize prior to applying it daily.

I was introduced to the line by a plastic surgery office after I'd had laser surgery for acne scars. It is an excellent product for full coverage (or not if you don't want) and has a good level of SPF in it. Once the gal was able to find my perfect shade, I left there and ordered my make-up via eBay. It used to run about $50 per compact which lasts me 3-4 months. Now, they've introduced compact refills that run me about $36 on eBay and last just as long.

I'd recommend visiting a supplier of her products, determining your shade, and then ordering online elsewhere if you want to save a few bucks (definitely a good idea while deciding if you like the product or not).

I have also tried her line of skin care, but didn't care for it at all.

Thanks for the replies. Yes, I'm going to go check them out at a spa first. Hopefully I can get a full consultation/ makeover, so I can see if I like the line before purchasing.

The lady who does my facials sells Jane Iredale products. I didn't care for the mineral makeup because all of these powdery things make me look older than I should. But I am a regular user of the Sugar and Butter lip exfoliator and the hydrating spray.
