HG LIKE MADCRAZY. I have extremely tempramental sensitive/combination/acne prone skin-along with being ridicuously pale... it's extremely difficult to find a foundation that I like that provides the mattifying coverage I need while still feeling light and natural.Like I said before, I'm extremely pale and most foundations are way too dark for me. I bought this in the transluscent light and it has that great 'I'm not wearing makeup' look, yet covers my somewhat large pores and red patches-all the while, it feels like Iike I'm not wearing makeup, which is ESSENTIAL for the summertime. The only problem I have is that it makes my skin itch if I don't use a primer (monistat, I love you) beforehand, and the brush really blows. I've tried bare minerals and countless liquid foundations in the past and hated them all (BM because of the mica making my face look insanely shiny, and it was WAY too dark). This foundation is a godsend if you have any of my skin qualms, or if you hate the feeling of heavy makeup while still requiring pretty moderate coverage. But now I'm just overly gushing-just please, take my advice and TRY THIS!

Gee, I hate to be the party pooper here, but this did not work for me at all. I'm nearing the end of my beloved L'Oreal Bare Naturale so I thought I would give something different a try. I hope I can return it! It had no coverage and and within one hour my face looked like I had been in the kitchen over a pot of popping grease all day. It smelled nice, I guess, but that's the best I can say about it. Too bad, I really wanted it to work for me.

Okay, so I LOVE this makeup :) I wear it in soft ivory. I've got oily skin that's super sensitive and I've always had trouble with breaking out. So when I heard about this talc free stuff I had to try it. For me, it covers like a sheer foundation, which I NEVER thought I would've been able to pull off. But it balances out my skin tone, provides the coverage I need, and it just looks so natural. I hate it whenever someone can tell I'm wearing makeup, but with this you can't. It just looks like you have good skin. My nose did get shiny after a few hours, it does with every makeup, but all I had to do was just brush a little powder across and poof, all better :) In fact, since switching to this loose powder makeup my skin has started to really improve. Gotta love that!Also, the brush it comes with isn't that great, so I recommend getting a better one.And another thing, someone said their's was orange? Maybe your shade was too dark? I had that happen before with other makeup because I got a shade that was a couple steps above what I am. Pay attention when ya buy stuff, it really helps :)

PRODUCT: Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder COLOR: Creamy Natural is a good match with my yellow toned NC20 skin COST: $ $12.99 DISCRIPTION: Mineral Makeup that contains no talc. COVERAGE: Medium SMELL: light powder smell CONTAINER: Large and comes with a brush that's worthless. I'm using a different brush to apply the minerals because the brush it comes with is too rough and little. It comes in dome shaped container but you get a lot of product for your money. I apply it by putting mineral powder into the dome shaped lip and swirling my brush into it WOULD I BUY AGAIN: Yes. I used this as my foundation while going to a theme park on a hot humid day and my makeup stayed on. I usually use full coverage liquid foundations but this is great for the summer days when liquid foundation is a no can do. It stays on, even after a sweaty workout. great staying power.

I bought this product in Translucent Light, hoping that it would match my skin tone.... I tried the Creamy Natural a while ago and it was a tad to dark. I'm not sure if this is actually "translucent" because it gives light to medium coverage which is exacly what I wanted. And, the color is perfect! Finally, a mineral make up that comes ina color I can wear! I had a long and arduous experience with Everyday Minerals. I loved the texture and finish that I got from it, but I couldn't seem to find a decent color match for my fair/light skin tone. I ordered sample kit after sample kit and I have finally given up... it's getting too expensive and I still haven't foudn the right color. As a company I love them, but the convienience of shoping at a Drug Store is soooo much easier. If the color isn't right, I just drive back to return it,a nd buy a new one..... I don't have to buy it, wait aweek to get it, be disappointed that the color isn't right, and then repeat the process with the next sample kit.Okay, I'm ranting now :) Past MM experiences aside, I have a new found love for the loose mineral wear powder from PF. It's feels light, is perfect for my sensitive, rosacea, break out prone skin, and I was able to find a good color match. The powder isn't shmmery, or too "reflective", and gives me a nice creamy matte finish that last for several hours. The price is decent for the amount of product and the quality. Very affordable. ALSO... the packaging. I know it looks weird. I know it's a little bulky. And, I know that most people want somethign sleek and classy looking. Frankly I don't care about any of those things because the funny package that this stuff comes in makes it THE most clean and easy loose mineral powder to use imo. The brush is scratchy, and is best used for travelling and touch ups. At home in the morning I would recommend using a nicer kabuki, or what-have-you. As you can tell, I'm very pleased with this product. It's exactly what I've been wanting in a mineral make up for a while: Quality, that's affordable and convenient.

Love this!It perfectly covers my face without being cakey and it doesn't make me breakout! Yeah! The only thing wrong with it is that the sifter doesn't allow much of the powder to get out. The tiny brush stuck to the top of the container is a little annoying, because I couldn't use another brush without using the globe-like lid. So that is a little ridiculous. But other than that, another great product from Physician's Formula!

I can't find a colour in this that matches my skin. Which is really unfortunate because I do like this stuff. Of all the powder foundations I've tried, this has been my favourite. It's great when you're in a hurry or don't want to spend a lot of time doing your make-up. The size is a little awkward for toting around. I find a lot of powder gets wasted during application, but you do get a lot of for what you pay for so I don't feel guilty. I would repurchase, but only if they came out with a lighter shade than what they currently have.

This was my first mineral makeup purchase and I chose it because it said Talc-Free and I have used other PF products before. Within an hour my face felt tight and itchy/burning feeling. The colour kept darkening and it looked terrible. Then in the next few days I broke out with horrible cyctic acne that was very hard to treat. I retried this product 3 times and had the same result each time!! Now I'm using Everyday Minerals and my skin, the cyctic acne, and the red scarring is literally vanishing. Would not recommend using without doing a test patch first if you have sensitive or acne-prone skin.

got it at target for $12, so not cheap. my first loose powder, so i'm not sure what to expect, but i do agree that it did nothing to control the oilies. i wore it alone (just over my moisturizer and sunscreen), didn't really notice any difference. then i used it to set my liq foundation, and only then, on my t-zone and forehead. that worked a bit better. just overall not amazing, and did not control my shine, so i'm going to keep looking. also, the brush that comes with it is a piece o crap, toss it immediately, it sheds when you even look at it. the little sifter top was ok, but it just takes up lots of room in my makeup bag b/c of the big bubble top where the brush was.
