According to Jane Iredale's Webpage:

The look is moist and light. The feel is like a second skin. A light-reflecting, mineral foundation in a special liquid formulation. The beads are actually liposomes entrapping liposomes. This state-of-the-art technology enables us to encapsulate large amounts of active ingredients, which are then time-released into the skin. The spheres are suspended in a gel of aloe vera and vegetable glycerin. Makeup and skin care in one bottle!

My Opinion:

I bough these 2 items together, and I have 1/3 of the liquid left while the pressed powder has been barely touched.

Actually I don't like either one of it, but since I do not like wasting things I'll try to use it up. (note: I just can't make the press powder work)

Whenever I apply the press powder It always emphasize my lines and pores making me look really old (If that's the look that I'm going for, I might as well skip makeup).

Regarding the liquid mineral, it's actually very hard to blend it and is very easy to over apply and look cakey. Apart from the diffilculties in application this stuff stinks, I was told that was the smell of aloe, but this product just isn't good enough for me to overlook it's scent...

If you are considering buying this product, please note that the shades for the pressed powder are slighly darker then the liquids. Although I've got both items in Golden Glow, I can only use the powder during summer when I'm slightly darker.
