Physicians Formula have a great range of mineral make up which are free from talc and this is one of the most poor of the products on this range.
It is supposed to be colour correcting but I don't believe that it sincerely corrects my colour, it all just goes on white, and it's just like any other regular pressed powder, it's nothing special.
The price is quite expensive for the quantity and part of the quality.
It has light coverage and cannot be worn alone, it wears too quickly and does not cover much by itself.
The brush is quite colourful and feels soft but it is fairly tiny and does not spread the product evenly on the face. The bristles are cheap and fall of quite easily, which is annoying. The shape of the brush is not easy to work with when applying the product.
The packaging is average but is annoying how the mirror is on the other flip side of the powder, It would be easier if it was on the back of the lid so you didn't have to flip back and forth.
The product does not break me out and i recommend this to acne prone people, however it works well if you build it and have a fairly thick foundation base.
i am soooooooooooooo annoyed by sensitive skin because even this powder broke me out really bad....Dont be fooled by companies advertising their products for people with sensitive skin! Do lots of research and stay away from ingredients you know will irritate your skin...I found out dimethicone is killer for me...and this powder is full of it....the only reason it gets two lips is because i can still kind of use it as under eye concealer so its not a total and complete waste
Sensitive/combo skin, this is for you!! I have extremely hormonal skin with the beginnings of fine lines around my face. I love the feel of mineral makeup, as liquids are too thick for my oily skin, but any that I have tried settle in my fine lines and break me out. I bought this on a whim; I have always thought that cheap drug-store products are full of junky ingredients and don't wear well. I was wrong in this case.
What I love about it is that it has a nice coverage and does not settle into my lines. It gives a healthy glow, very similar to bareminerals, but does not make my sensitive skin itch, and I have not broken out. The only wish is that it had SPF, but I wear it with my oil-absorbing SPF 30, byPeterThomasRoth, and it is perfect. The added green and yellow pigments seem to provide a nice "calming" glow.
THROW OUT THE BRUSH! It is poor quality, scratchy, and has large hairs- bad for coverage. I applied the powder with my my kabuki, and it goes on well. Although it is compressed, the powder comes off easily and in great abudance, so be aware; no worse than any loose/mineral powder, just don't get it on your black pants. Also, if you have light to medium skin, go with the darkest shade, Natural Beige. I initually bought the creamy natural, and it was ghostly.
This is a very pale, almost translucent powder is a brilliant setting powder. I have this in Natural Beige which is the darkest of the four shades but is still very pale.
I use this over my foundation for a matte finish and find that it keeps me matte for most of the day which many powders don't manage to do. Yes, it's pale but if you get a small amount of product on a big, fluffy brush (the brush that is included is good if you're stuck without a brush but otherwise fairly useless) it applies sheer and is not noticeable. Not sure if the green and pink evens out skintone as promised since it applies so sheerly.
The packaging is ok-ish. It's not too flimsy and I like the fact that you have to press a button to open the powder compartment so that it doesn't randomly open and spill out everywhere. The other compartment houses the brush (which is truly ugly). A mirror would be nice so you can see where youre applying the powder.
It costs AU$29.95 which is a bit pricey I suppose but given how well it works, I'd happily buy this again.
This is a good product for someone with VERY pale skin. I have fairly light skin but this darkest shade is too light for me, even in the winter! Maybe because of the SPF in it, it leaves a white powdery sheen that makes me look even paler than I am! The coverage is medium and settles in the skin well, but I cant walk around looking like Casper! I may try other PF mineral powders though.
This works great for getting your liquid/cream foundations to match! I ALWAYS have a hard time finding a yellow/warm undertoned foundation. Sometimes this would work for me over foundation, sometimes it wouldn't :( I've also tried this with powder, which didn't do much for me. Sometimes i would look very pale. It would be great if they had some darker colors, but PF's mostly for light skin. The best of this powder for me is the green powder. I always have a lot of redness to cover, and the powder gives nice natural looking coverage :) You have to REALLY blend if you have darker skin though! I would possibly buy this again, but it's kind of pricey for a drugstore brand imo.
Warning: this is only good for girls with light skin! It can make you look like a ghost if you aren't careful! But I wear it underneath light bronzer and blush, and it looks perfectly normal. I have acne prone skin, and this helps cover any blemishes I may have. The brush it comes with is totally useless, though.
I like this one, but I use it as a finishing powder over tinted moisturizer. It gives me a nice natural dewy finish. I don't know if the swirls of green, yellow, and oink really do anything, but the overall effect is nice. The brush, as usual, is useless, except in a pinch. I use a full coverage kabuki brush for application. The regular price is expensive, but PF can always be found on BOGO sales or with coupons attached to the boxes. I think I got this one for around $5 on sale.
Not nuts about this one. The brush is pretty useless, and looks like a clown's mohawk. The powder is drying, chalky-feeling, pasty-looking when applied all-over as a finisher, and gave my skin an oddly ghastly bluish cast in some lights. Not bad over concealer and foundation under the eyes if dark circles are a problem, but it's not good enough for me to consider re buying.
This did nothing for my skin as I could tell..
I do have crazy acne though..so I guess I'm asking a lot
but, this didn't even tone down or even out my redness to the least. I tried it w/ & w/o primer and tried it as a setting powder..no luck w/ this continued >>
