Here are the Sheer Cover Reviews shared by other site visitors, along with ingredient and shade information.
Sheer Cover Mineral Makeup, introduced to the market by spokesperson Leeza Gibbons, is preferred by many users. Although it has a similar coverage, many users prefer Sheer Cover's matte finish to the Bare Escentuals "gleam" - especially those with oily skin or enlarged pores.
It is one of the best known Mineral Makeups on the market. It is sold via a Guthy Renker Infomercial only, it is not available in stores or online except from the infomercial site.
It is sold in a kit that contains their Foundation along with their very popular concealer, Facial Cleanser, Moisturizer, Brushes and a Color Palette with Eye and Lip Colors, Mineral Mascara and a Makeup Bag. After you purchase the introductory kit, other kits and products are available and you will can log into the Sheer Cover Customer site to customize your kits and frequency of shipments. There are over 90 different products to choose from when you design your own custom kit.

Sheer Cover Mineral Makeup has an SPF of 15. The Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide provide the SPF. This is a physical sunscreen - there are no chemical sunscreens in the product.
Foundation Active Ingredients: Zinc Oxide (12.00%). Other Ingredients: Boron Nitride, Bisabolol, Aspalathus Linearis Leaf Extract, May Contain (+/-): Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Mica, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499)
Here is more info about each of the Sheer Cover Ingredients:
Zinc Oxide is a physical sunscreen that provides both UVA and UVB protection. It also provides thickening and water resistance. It is “calming” to the skin and will reduce irritation and promote healing. This is one of the reasons that mineral makeup helps some people with acne - See What is the best Makeup for Acne?
Titanium Dioxide Also provides a physical sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection.. It is widely used in cosmetics and skin care for its thickening and whitening properties. Titanium dioxide is what makes Oreo cookies frosting extra-white and is used on the the 'M' on M&M's candy.
Bismuth Oxychloride is a pearlescent mineral that provides the “glow”. (See Bismuth in Mineral Makeup)
Mica is a sheer, translucent and skin-hugging mineral. Reflects light from the face, creating an illusion of a smoother, softer and more radiant skin tone.
Iron Oxides are used to give each product their color.
Boron Nitride is a synthetic inorganic powder that is used in cosmetics because it offers absorptive properties similar to talc.
Bisabolol is an anti-irritant that is either synthetically made or derived from Chamomile.
Aspalathus Linearis Leaf Extract is also known as Rooibos or Green Tea Extract. It is used as an anti-oxidant to provide anti-aging properties.
Sheer Cover is available in four different shades. Mineral makeup is generally very forgiving when it comes to selecting a color. Most women will wear Medium and most people who need light will already know it (they always have to go with the lightest shade).
Light is for fair, ivory skin tones and sun-sensitive skin.
Medium is for light-medium to beige skin tones that become tan in the sun. This shade will work for the majority of the adult female populations.
Tan is for olive and golden skin tones and women of a slightly darker complexion.
Dark is for deep, rich skin tones and women of a darker complexion.
My Sheer Cover Review:
Having started my mineral makeup journey with BareMinerals, I was anxious to try Sheer Cover as soon as I discovered it. I was (and am) very impressed with it. I was able to get a perfect color match with the medium kit. It gives great coverage and a really pretty matte finish. I also like all of the other products in the starter kit, especially the concealer and finishing powder. I wasn't crazy about the brushes and preferred to use my own.

Sheer Cover Makeup is sold online and via an infomercial exclusively by Guthy Renker. They offer a 30 Day Trial Kit that is a great value at $29.95. It includes free gifts. After your initial order, you will receive your own log-in to the Sheer Cover Customer Service site where you can order more products, customize your Sheer Cover Kits or cancel future orders. Future orders often contain free gifts. The trial kit and auto delivery kits are an economical way to purchase the products.
Overall the Sheer Cover reviews are very positive. The negative comments are mainly from people who don't understand they are automatically placed on auto-delivery. It is very important to understand before you order that when you order from Guthy-Renker you are automatically enrolled in auto-delivery. They only way to stop it is to go to the same site and cancel it. You can also customize your orders and slow them down or speed them up. If you need to speak with someone their customer service number is 1-800-506-6281. Be sure you save the website info & your sign in info!
It really is the most economical way to try one of their starter kits - but if you just want to try one item or don't want to fool with the auto delivery plan, my next suggestion would be ebay.
There is however a very large selection of products through eBay. I assume individuals order the kits and sell the items individually on eBay for a profit. If you want the entire set, it will be cheaper to go through the company. However if you only want to try one or two products or you just want to sample the mineral foundation, your best bet is eBay.
Purchasing cosmetics on eBay is safe and easy. Just make sure you read the description carefully and know exactly what you are buying. Make sure the listing specifically states that the item is new and sealed. Mineral makeup is considered to be inorganic and therefore cannot get contaminated or grow bacteria, so it does not have an expiration date. However on other products that do have an expiration date, the date should be stated in the listing. Also make sure you know the size you are buying. Finally, make sure you check the seller's feedback and other listings. If they have great feedback and lot of other cosmetic listings you can feel comfortable doing business with them. Always pay with PayPal and if there is any type of problem with your order it will be very easy to get resolved through PayPal.
