Review of Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Mattifying Face Powder by Magixz
I do like this powder. At first I goofed and bought the luminous one, too much shine for my liking but the matte one is great. I love the light smell of the ingredients too. It is not a perfume fragrance but rather a clean aroma. The powder applied by itself is very airy/light. I have tried it alone and over foundation. Both ways have acceptable results. I can tell that come summer this powder by itself will be just enough coverage to do the job. During these winter months, applying it over my foundation allows a more refined look and I love it. I do wish that Physicians Formula would create more than one shade though! Translucent is okay and for sure it assures P.F. will sell a lot of this product as they cannot go wrong with translucent but I for one would really love to see this line of powder in some more realistic shades like Ivory, Natural Ivory, Beige, Buff, etc. Other than that, this one is a keeper in my wardrobe. I have removed the little cute brush and added a pretty cosmetic sponge for my own application. I find a brush makes this powder too loose & it flies around all over. To me too much product is lost using a brush and the sponge gives me more control over the application and better coverage. I love the pretty container too. I like it that it is larger and easy to grab onto and being color coded helps as well.
