I had been hearing good things about this product on QVC's boards & finally found it at Walgreens. I like mineral makeup, but don't like paying $35.00 for Philosophy Supernatural. But since the Supernatural gives wonderful results, $35 was something I was willing to pay. The Physicians Formula container holds much more product that BE or Philosophy. I use a BE handi buki brush to apply it. The results are exactly the same as Philosophy's , if not better. Seems to me the PF wears longer. No breakouts, itching, or turning orange. No sparkle & it does not accentuate pores/wrinkles. I have said it before & will say it again- there is a learning curve with mineral makeup, so if you have never used mineral makeup before, don't give up on your first(or second or third) try.
