all in all i'm not sure about me buying this product again. some days it looks wonderful on me (today) other days..not so much. the packaging itself is not so bad. it comes with a little brush...which as many have said not the greatest in the world...althou....my puppy dog loved to chew on it. she chose this over all my other brushes drying.(lucky for her) so it must taste pretty good..or smell good. way off topic i know, but i found a use for the brush!
the coverage is light to medium, definately not full. and some days i need full coverage. i do like the fact it has spf in it, make my life easier please! my pale skin appreciates it! the overall feel is quite nice, no itching. (love be coverage, can do without the itchyness!)
and the price without coupon is a bit steep for a ds brand, but it's physicians formula and they do have a lot of good products..so they must figure they can charge whatever they want.
still looking for a hg powder fdtn.
I'm not a huge fan of the packaging or brush... well thats an understatement about the brush, which goes in the garbage the second I open this stuff. The foundation though is wonderful. It has good coverage and makes my skin look nice, but I don't really like it over top of liquid foundation because it looks a little cakey & shiny on my face. I keep going back to this stuff, cause its relatively cheap & works quite well.
this stuff goes on nicely and i liked that it had spf in it, but it broke me out like crazy. i got tons of blackheads all over my face that still haven't fully cleared up. and its been months maybe a year since i stopped using it!!!!!
The shade (Creamy Natural) and finish actually worked well for me, but as soon as I put it on, my face started itching--and a day later, I have several new pimples.
And yes, the brush sucks.
I been looking for a 'healthy' foundation I could buy in drugstores that was a reasonable price. and guess what? I found this on sale with a $4 coupon sticker on the packaging! so,def look out for that :) & even without, it's still cheaper than other mineral makeup out there.
ok, so I love the not oily AT all very slight glow it gives me. and i'm assuming that comes from the mica. now the coverage is very sheer, almost none. but I still love just apply a dusting of this powder and that's it for a simple face. I personally don't like using this as a setting powder after foundation. it dosent look good on me. but just as a powder, love it!
I especially LOVE the no talc part & good for your skin ingredients :)
oh! and it has spf 16, it dosent say it on the container but it does
also, I recommend the revlon powder blushes with this powder under. it will give you the perfecttt natural everyday face! I think it's because the revlon one has mica too, & many healthy ingredients :)
At first when i got this, i was excited cause the packaging looked all cool, but when i actually started to use it, it got really messy. Not the best. Now, the price.... it was a little on the expensive side.. about $13 - 15 bucks, that wasn't the best either. Ha. My last complaint about this product is that it has slight shimmer to it that does not do well with my ever so oily skin. It makes it look like i have a dirty face. Wah. :( There are some pros to this, such as it lasting a long time and it covers well and even... at first. Oh. The brush sucks. Throw it away when you get home. No point in using that. Uhhh. Yeah.. i think that's it. Not buying this again, sorry.
Before I ever wore regular foundation, I wore this. I have always adored this powder as the coverage is very good and it wears all day without turning on me. I like a more natural look and even though now I sometimes wear regular liquid foundation (either Korres ginger + vitamins or Maybelline Fit Me) I still prefer a light, natural looking coverage. I have gone through several jars of these and I will probably always use this powder. Also, I like that this is mineral based and will not break you out, well at least it doesn't break me out. I use a kabuki brush not the one it comes with and I put a little in the dome lid it comes with and buff it into my skin. It is a very nice product for the warmer months as you don't have to worry about it melting off your face in the heat.
When I was younger I looooved this product and it was matte for me. I had normal skin back then. Once I got older I started using waaay more liquid foundation lots.. And I definetaly didn't apply it right and after I would use this as a finish because the foundation made my skin shiny which I wasn't a fan of. I would alwaays have to carry this around with me because my face started to become soooo oily. I blame this and the foundation I was using. I tryed this again a couple days ago by itself and had to wash my face because I felt the oils coming on again. Not a good buy for ME. It was also very messy and kind of a pain in the ass to apply evenly seeing as how it's a loose powder. I guess all in all if you like a light weight feel this will work for you. This brand is also a good brand for powders, bronzers, blushes.
I personally really like this foundation and I'm not sure why everyone hates it. I do have very oily skin and there have been a lot of comments about it flaking. Maybe it works better on oily skin? I also love the packaging. The brush sucks and should be thrown out though. I just dump some of it into another one of my circular makeup lids. I like how it comes with a sealable top, very travel friendly! I dont come home and find half of the product in the cap...I will, however, rant about the color of the foundation. All of the colors ive tried of this except translucent medium have left me with an orangey, almost red skin color after a couple hours...the only reason i kept on trying different colors was because I love the finish of this so much. It looks so smooth and nice :) great coverage too! I think i'm finally happy with the translucent medium color...Oh, and I do wear it over the top of liquid foundation too.
Horrible! Packaging is the worst...so messy!! Brush it comes with is junk....leaves your skin cakey....does nothing for pores, oil, or ay masking any imperfections. Do NOT waste your money on this!!
