i bought this in a value pack with the powder, blush and finshing veil for 20 bucks, not a bad deal at all. i really love the coverage it gives, but throw the brushes it comes with away there useless. i like to use a sponge or eco tools kabuki brush. i got a shade a little to dark but i plan on tanning soon so i wont swap it out. this doesnt irritate my sensitive skin or make me breakout. make sure you moisturize and let ur moisturizer completly dry before putting this on, it does emphasize dry areas. over all an amazing product. ill def repurchase
I have this in translucent, and I find that it works well with my skin tone. I usually use this with a puff to set or touch-up my makeup, and I find that it works really well for that without making my face look powdery or dry. I have not had problems with either the powder or the package breaking either. This doesn't irritate my skin or make it feel dry at all. I really like this powder, and I will repurchase.
This is the powder I keep in my purse and in my desk at work. The powder always breaks, so I have to keep it in a pouch with a separate powder puff to apply (the brush that comes with it is useless.)
This powder covers great and doesn't break me out - no talc! It stays well and is matte and keeps my oilies in check.
My daughters love this, too. We've tried almost everything and this is the one we continue to use. Best product for the price IMO.
At first I wasn't really sure what to make of it.
The colour I bought was slightly too light for my skin tone.
Brush: Not as terrible as some of the other Physical's Formula brushes I've used, but you can find better brushes. I'll give this brush a 6.5/10
Powder: Great powder, great formula. I wish I bought a shade darker though. This is SHEER coverage though. Especially if you use the brush that comes with it, the coverage will be sheer. And don't forget to "blend" or else you will have too much powder in one area
Compact: 5/10. I like how there's a built in mirror, but because the brush is in the same compartment, the mirror is always dusty from the powder. Not only that, but my powder (in time) slowly broke to pieces...
Right now, this powder is all broken. I was hoping to use this as a travel-powder for quick fixes // checking myself in the mirror, but the powder is all broken and I can't open the mirror because the powder is on top....
I use is at a loose/powder now and because I don't travel with this, I can use my good brushes to apply.
I find that the coverage is much better with my buffer brush.
I'd give this product a 8.5/10 or a 9/10
But the packaging really gets to me. Some of the powder spilled in my purse.
I recommend buying this, as long as you don't mind the powder breaking in about 2 months.
I really love this foundation!
in the summer my skin is more tan,
and i noticed that my light powders are making my face look way paler than the rest of my body. which i thought was completely awful! i went to k mart and saw this little baby and thought why not? i bought it and applied some concealer to my spots. the creamy natural matches my skin tone almost perfectly, and it was lovely on my skin.
- i will reperchase.
Was looking for a pressed mineral powder for travel, since the loose powders can be messy. Hated this one. Poor coverage and fake, powdery finish. And why make a foundation with different colors instead of just blending it so you can see the real color?? Incidentally, I ended up loving MAC Mineralize Skin Finish.
I am just finishing my fourth one of these powders. I will not be repurchasing again. I use Creamy Natural and its a great match for my skin. I use it to set my tinted moisturizer or foundation. On a few occasions I just wore this with some concealer underneath. I love the coverage of this. Its capable of covering some of my acne scars. The packaging is awful every single one of these I have owned has broken. Its flimsy plastic. Its not good for oily skin. My skin isn't oily and I still have to blot a bit. The finish is my biggest issue. It is really powdery. If you're looking for coverage then its easy to look powder. If you just use a light dusting of this to set your foundation, then its not so bad. I love that this doesn't irritate my acne prone skin in the slightest. Not having talc in it is great.
LOVEEE this! I do not have perfect skin whatsoever but If i don't feel like putting foundation on, i can wear this alone and still get coverage. I found that using a sponge works great for days that I only wear this because it provides a little more coverage.. but if i wear this over foundation, I apply it with a big fluffy brush and its perfect at setting my makeup! I would definitly recommend this, just don't use the brush provided! that is usually with all makeup that provides applicators, they are usually cheap and crappy. But overall FABULOUS powder!
I pretty much gave up on finding a decent face powder, because they tend to make my face look cakey and super dry. But recently since I've been using PF's Healthy Wear Tinted Moisturizer, I really needed a powder to set my face and make it look matte when it starts to get really greasy after 4-5 hours.
- Talc free
- Result in NO breakouts/inflammations for me (#1 priority for me)
- Goes on sheer and matte with a soft kabuki brush
- REALLY natural coverage (got this in Buff Beige)
- Still looks natural and not cakey after touch-ups
- The brush it comes with is utter garbage
- Rather plain packaging
- Packaging looks like it'll pop open easily in my purse (so I keep it in a Ziploc baggie haha)
- The mirror is on the flip-side of the powder tray. That's just weird and very inconvenient.
- for the love of macaroni & cheese, do not use the brush it comes with!
- I use a soft kabuki brush, PAT that into the powder surface, and tap out the excess before applying. I've read other reviews that suggest doing that instead of swirling your brush around in there vigorously. Seems like this pressed powder is too soft and finely-milled for heavy swirling.
- I'm currently using a powder puff for touch-ups but I keep feeling like the powder isn't really getting on the puff so I have to keep going back for more product. So annoying. I'll be purchasing a retractable kabuki soon.
OVERALL: Even though the packaging isn't that great and makes me nervous (thank goodness for that Ziploc baggie), this powder really does do what it's supposed to do, which is why I give it 5 stars! It's noncomedogenic, oil-free, and hypoallergenic so it doesn't block pores, cause breakouts, or irritate my acne-prone, on-Proactiv-regimen skin. It really does give a natural-looking finish that is very forgiving to dry areas, and I find that it doesn't give me fine lines like some powders do. I'm very, VERY happy with this purchase so I will repurchase this when the time comes! continued >>
I like using this product because it proves efficient in setting my liquid foundation :)
