This product is wonderful! I am MAC NC40 at the moment, and I have this in Sand Beige. It covers acne scars and gives a radiant finish. My skin feels great and it's loaded with antioxidents. I use Concealer Rx under this if Im in a hurry and I get a PERFECT looking complexion. Everyone should try this. If you shop at Longs or Rite-Aid you can try shades at home and trade them if you got the wrong one.
This is wrong for me. 1) It doesn't mattify at all. 2) It made my large pores look even larger. For these reasons I had to give it away to my mum (who loves it incidentally!) If you don't have these issues with your skin, then you will no doubt fall in love with this product. It's quite a shame it didn't work for me because I really loved the 'glowing' finish I got from it. The packaging is 'interesting' - I dealt with it by a) ditching the brush that comes with it and b) snipping the hinged lid that is directly over the sifter - this allows me to poor product directly into the domed lid. Then you can swirl and tap with your brush to apply. The hunt for my HG foundation continues!
This is amazing! I was originally using Clinique Perfectly Real Compact Makeup and i loved it and I was running out. So when I saw this at my local Target I thought I'd give it a try because it wasn't expenisive and if I didn't like it then I could switch back to Clinique, but I love this! It goes on nicely (I would recommend getting a different brush though because the one it comes with is really rough and not good for your skin. Clinique makes good brushes) and it gives a very nice finish. I went back the next day to get more makeup from Physician's Formula and I love it all! I highly recommend getting your makeup from there. You'll love it.
Wow. I have tried many types of mineral makeups, and this by far, is my HG, right next to Jane. Be Pure Mineral Makeup. They both are outstanding! Anyways, I think the packaging of this is very nifty and different, and the brush included is ONLY nice if you soak it in some fabric softener for awhile. It provides great coverage without looking masklike or too matte. It gives a nice, dewy look without the shininess. I love how it minimizes my pores and really brings out the health in my skin. Its mostly zinc oxide, so it has amazing sun protection qualities, and the other minerals smooth out my skin, and I can feel it nourishing my skin if that makes sense. Love this product. I found it at walgreens for around 10 bucks. It and Jane. are by far the best mineral makeups out there.
Suprisingly nice for a drugstore foundation! The color is very good too which is very rare because drugstore foundations tend to have sucky color! It looks very natural on, doesn't cause breakout and is cheap! The brush that is included is a little rough on the skin, but it still works.
One word. Love. Goes on perfectly! I used to think my time with MMU was over until I tried this! I was previously using Bare Naturale by L'oreal, but it was just to dry and cakey. And plus, it had talc. Ew.
I bought this in Creamy Natural (I'm pale) and next time I'll buy Translucent Light and apply a nice layer overtop of the creamy natural to give me a flawless pale look.
Invest in a good brush though, the one that comes with it hurts! It works good and blend the makeup, but it's painful! lol.
This is the best stuff I've ever used. You can pick it up pretty much at any drugstore, it's cheap for a mineral makeup I paid 10 bucks, and it works! This covers up all the spots on my face left from acne, any acne I have, and it just gives be a flawless complexion, which is something I am so happy I can finally have. Plus it's minerals so it's good for your skin. This paired with a good moisturizer and it lasts all day. For oily skin types like me after a full day it still looks good but my face still gets a little shiny, but it doesn't look bad it's just that nice dewy look. Love this stuff so much better than everyday minerals and is so much more matte than everyday minerals as well. GO OUT AND TRY IT you won't be disappointed.
UPDATE: In the past I strayed from this b/c it was too messy but went back. And after going back it didn't work as well. It still covered well but after an hour it would settle in the very fine lines I have and look really cakey and fake. Will stay away from it.
I really like this stuff. I bought the translucent med. and it's good but I have a lot of redness so next time I'll get the straight Med. I like that it lasts all day and is easy to touch up if I need it. You can't beat the price much better than BE which I've used before. My only beef is the brush that comes with it. It's harsh on my skin and the hairs come out of it....UGG!! I use a regular powder brush and it works great!
Very nice product. Gives a flawless look. The brush it comes with isn't gentle by any means, but why would anyone spend more when this works so well?
So this is my HG mineral foundation. I've tried Jane Iredale, Bare Minerals, and Alima. This beats them all, hands down. Jane Iredale was too dry/cakey, Bare Minerals looked like I was a shiny walking corpse with crater pores, and Alima was too heavy and made my fine lines into heavy duty lines (with surprisingly little coverage, too).
Enter our hero, Physician's Formula! Not too shiny, but just light-reflective enough to blur imperfections. Not too heavy, but plenty of coverage. Not too dry, but dry enough to stay matte. Long-lasting, non-irritating, natural-looking, and no zits after many days of use. Comes off easy with a foaming cleanser. Also, I guess it must have lots of SPF since it's primarily zinc oxide. And, it's cheapity-cheap-cheap at about $10. I mix the Translucent Light and the Buff to get my perfect match (I'm quite pale/freckled with neutral peachy undertones). My search is over! If you really want a great mineral foundation, you're crazy not to try this!
