Like that it's all natural and that's pretty much just it.
It has no coverage, it's too powdery, it's chalky, and product gets everywhere.
This held up the oil pretty good, not the best oil control, but it did make my look flawless and even toned. I did not like the way brush felt against my skin, it actually kinda hurt to use it. One of the other complaint I have about it is that it's bit chalky looking, even if you only use a small amount. It also took a few uses to get the coverage I wanted, but other than that it was pretty tolerable. If you have mildly oily skin/combination skin and are wanting to try something from this line, this is the only good product because even the oil control is not the best of the best, it will make your skin look flawless. Well, it did for me at least. Still, I would not buy this again, only because I need something with better oil control than what I was given.
I love this product.
It sucks up the oil.
I've actually run out of mine and have been searching for this one from Physicians Formula for awhile (I can't find it!).
For me it's not cakey, I don't use tons of it over my liquid foundation (I use Nars Sheer Glow).
I also use Makeup Forever HD powder over this to soften everything up.
I would totally buy this again.
I bought this in Translucent Medium to go along with Organic tinted moisturizer (which I LOVE). I have mixed feelings about this powder, it's very luminous in it's finish, which is kind of pretty and makes this powder unique, but it gets cakey SO easily and has no oil control whatsoever. Also, this goes on about 3 shades whiter than it appears in the pan. It's nice for a very a highlighting effect I suppose so I am giving it 3 lippies for that reason alone. UPDATE: Ok, so these run WAY lighter than they appear in the pan, my skin is barely medium, and I am using the darkest shade "Sand Beige", and it looks fantastic now. No weird ghostly sheen/shiny look, no cakiness...very smooth and natural. Would repurchase, but only in this shade.
I bought this product because it was on sale and i had a coupon so it was basically free. that being said, it was really bad powder. it felt cheap, the packaging it terrible, it was chalky, and i was just not impressed. i threw it away. maybelline's dream matte powder is a much better ds option, although personally MUFE's duo mat is my favorite. Expensive, but worth it. You don't even need foundation under it.
I got this a few years back mainly because of the packaging and design concept--that it was organic and natural makeup. I like that the shade matches my skin perfectly and blends really well after foundation, the color stays true and doesn't turn orange, and that it claims to be free of synthetic chemicals. However, the flimsy packaging and loosely packed powder makes it easy to break if you drop it on the ground. There's some odd smell in the ingredients that can be stinky sometimes. But I've had this product for more than 2 years and the odd smell faded for the most part and I've only used half of it.
I received this in a swap, hoping that on my mostly makeup free days my combo skin beseiged by rosacea could have the oil in it tamed. I was not disappointed. I can put my Eucerin and this on and I'm good to go. For me personally, it controlled shine for about 6-8 hours. I did notice a smell, kind of earthy lavender musky... but it went away after about 10 minutes (I couldn't smell it anymore). I would definitely repurchase this when the time comes :-)
I was really surprised by how much I liked this. I picked it up on clearance at my local drugstore just for fun and was pretty sure it was going to suck. When you open it, the smell hits you immediately and I thought oh yeah, this is going to suck. I put it on my face with a regular powder brush and didn't feel any of it. But when I looked in the mirror my skin tone had evened out and my complexion looked more fresh. I think I picked it up in beige buff, one of the medium tones, which is what I normally use. Worked out great! I kind of like the packaging because it's different and makes it fun to use. I don't carry it in my bag often so I don't have a problem with it getting beat up.
I have this product in translucent light.
This product is completely average.
Pros: Natural ingredients, eco-friendly packaging. I have been on an organic kick lately and have been wanting to try this for quite awhile. However, as much as I love the ingredients, the CONS certainly outweigh the pros: as soon as I put this on my face, my skin felt TIGHT. Also, it provided absolutely no coverage at all (which may be due to it being 'translucent light', but I've used other 'translucent' powders that offered minimal coverage). Sure, it made my skin less shiny but my skin is incredibly dry and I actually prefer it to look a little dewy.
Many complained about the smell; I did not notice an odour at all, actually.
All in all, I will be returning this tomorrow.
I don't see why so many people didn't like this, I thought it was great. Although, I don't wear foundation or anything heavy on my skin since I was just looking for something to reduce shine from my face, my tone and color are pretty even without makeup just very SHINY. This stuff stayed on all day and I love the natural ingredients it has, it has definitely improved my skin since I started using it. The only thing I don't like is the smell, but I can look (or sniff) past that for a good product that's eco-friendly, cruelty-free, and great for your skin :)
