I bought a kit of Tru Minerals on eBay and feel like I made a bad, bad decision. The medium is actually orange - I looked like I was wearing that noxzema scented foundation that girls used to wear in the 80s! (remember that?) When I wiped it off, I could NOT believe how the cleansing cloth looked. YUCKO. I am returning it for a refund but I don't recommend this brand. I was almost afraid that it was just crushed up wet-n-wild powder put in a fancy package!

It's always disappointing when something doesn't work at all. But at least there's plenty of other brands for you to try.

Uh wow, what a disappointment! But at least they're taking them back without a hassle for you, that's good. I'm always weary about buying MMU on ebay, I have to admit.

If you used Paypal you can file a dispute and say that the item was not as described...which it really wasn't..

They have good feedback and offer a money back policy, so I have contacted the seller to let them know it is being returned. I think they are going to be okay, but I will of course file a dispute if they give me any difficulty. I just can't get over the color! It was ORANGE orange! :lol:

This was not "True Cosmetics" with the Idebenone in it was it? that is really expensive stuff, so I am guessing this is an Ebayer trying to get play from their name?? If this was the real True then WOW that is BAD!

Sounds like a bad dream! That's why I swear I won't buy anything before I try it, and right or wrong I steer clear of ebay when it comes to makeup. Paranoid? well, maybe so but I can't help it! I hope you get your refund.
Just me - what more can I say?!?

I'm pretty sure this isn't the same co., I also noticed this brand while cruising the Ebay scene. I'm really happy I saw this thread cuz I was thinking of ordering their foundation/mineral veil combo; it comes w/ a brush and they are in 50 gr. jars for both the foundation/mineral veil for under $25 including shipping to Canada...awesome prices too bad the products are crap.:scared:

I did get my refund-including a shipping refund right away! They were very nice and I didn't have any trouble with them whatsoever! I would look to see what they have as far as eyeshadows and other colors. Although their foundation was a very odd color (oompa loompa is right!) :lol I think their prices and service are outstanding. I will try them again but just skip foundation at this point!
