I'm in love with this powder.
The goal of my make-up routine is always to get flawless, natural skin. I don't buy a lot of eyeliners or eyeshadows, but I invest a butt load on concealers, BB creams, etc.
So when I came across this powder (on sale) I thought I would give it a try. I have really fair skin, so I actually opted for the translucent version in the hopes that it would correct a few things (such as the very prominent bags under my eyes, the ruddiness around my nose, as so forth).
I was actualy very impressed. It helps even out my skin tone, and I like to use it around my eyes to set concealer as well as correct anything my concealer does not get.
A good buy!

I'm a huge fan of hte mineral wear talc-free powders from PF--and this mineral correcting poder in creamy natural makes my porcelain skin simply glow--and I tend to get a bit shiny in my T-zone and with this I am pretty shine-free most of the day--when I'm busy I forget to powder my nose, but with this powder, no worries--it evens out my rosy cheeks and gives a soft matte finish once I put my Max Factor Face Finity foundation on--my face stays perfect all day--I pick these up whenever I hit a buy-one-get-one 50% off; and the packaging stinks, but what can you do--the brush is garbage and I use a large fluffy powder brush to set my makeup. LOVE--my sensitive, fair, combo skin that's turning 40 this year LOVES PF powders :) Try it!!!

Target had the Physicians Formula Correcting Kit (comes with loose powder, correcting concealer, and this compact) on clearance for $4.50. Such a deal! The correcting concealer sucks, but I had much better luck with this. It gave nice even coverage. I have combo/oily skin and am pretty pale. This evened out the redness I tend to get around my nose. It did so well I think it would be okay by itself for a light makeup day, like a quick trip to the grocery store. Just a bit of blush and some lip gloss.
You're better off using a regular brush, the ridiculous PF tri-colored flat brushes do nothing.

Because my skin is super sensitive, It has been about a year or so that I have not used a powder. I use foundation and I like the dewey look it has without a powder but it doesn't last all day...so today I went searching for a powder that doesn't have talc and alas, I found this! I am in love with it! I have combination skin and this powder helps blot out my shiny spots but it doesn't enhance the look of my dry patches either. It's translucent enough to use as a finishing powder without making my face look cakey. I recommend this product if you have sensitive skin, or if you want a nice matte finishing powder that will neutralize and even out your skintone.

I just got this today but I have checked it in the mirror several times since I purchased it and it's going on 6 hours that it still looks great. I did read reviews and it seems people are disappointed with the color and lack of coverage. It's not a foundation, it's a color neutralizer. It looks just like your skin just with more even tone. That's the point.
I decided recently-ish that I needed to embrace my naturally paler-than-I-would-like skin in lieu of wrinkles and cancer from the sun and fake tans. I've struggled to find a good foundation in my new shade that does everything I want.
I found this on sale and I had seen it before but never given it a try. My skin isn't great, my cheeks and nose get blotchy and I break out on my chin pretty bad one week a month. ;-) I like doing my makeup but i don't want to NEED a 10-step routine each morning. I think this may be the answer to my 5-step routine.
2. BB cream all over
3. Concealer as needed
4. Blush/bronzer/eyes as needed depending on the day
5. Sweep this correcting powder over my nose and chin for a smooth finish without redness
So far it has a nice finish: not quite matte but not shimmery. It doesn't seem to rub off when I touch it which is cool. I could see how it would be too light if you have a tan or dark skin but over regular makeup and a light hand it does a pretty good job. I did see that they now make a "correcting bronzer" that might work better for darker skin although the reason I liked having a tan in the first place was because it evened my skin tone so maybe they're thinking darker girls don't have this issue. Overall I'm excited to use it more and I hope it holds up well.
Oh yeah, the container and brush suck but all their products have the same packaging so it was expected.

I use this powder in the winter, when I'm extra pale and my skin's a little dry. It's not terrific at controlling oiliness, but at that time of year it's ok. It's also very light-textured, so it's nice as a touch-up powder because it doesn't feel like I'm caking on a ton of makeup with every touch-up. However, it's a bit of a pain to use that way, as the provided brush is TERRIBLE and the powder itself is very soft, so using another brush gets messy. It doesn't really work with a puff, because you can end up with streaks of the "blended" tones. So, I end up using it mostly at home -- even though it's better for touchups. However, it's the best winter powder I've found, because of the extremely light shade and less drying finish.

I like this powder because it really does minimize blotchiness in the skin, with or without foundation. A light touch is all that's necessary. The brush is terrible so I use a proper powder brush instead. The compact is quite thick because of the extra compartment to store the brush, and that's a drawback. Since the brush isn't usable anyway, its a waste of space and takes up more room than necessary in my makeup bag. Because of the surprising coverage in this, its important to color match. I am using the Natural Ivory because its cooler weather now, but I might go for the next darker shade in the summer. This one is quite pale but still works.

I recently quit wearing liquid foundation because I have started breaking out pretty badly, and because I could never really find a shade that was light enough for my pale skin. I bought this powder with the hopes that it would cover up my bumps and marks, but still be light enough for my skin tone, unlike most powders that I've tried. This is perfect for my skin. It covers up my imperfections nicely, and matches my skin tone perfectly. The only complaint I have about this product is that the packaging is pretty sucky, and the brush that it comes with is horrible. I threw the brush away, and I just use a kabuki brush to apply it. Also, it's a bit pricey, around $14 at Walmart. I will buy again when I run out.

I generally don't like power because I like a dewy finish, however, I have recently developed the most annoying patch of hormonal rosacea on my chin and it has put a kink in my routine.
It turns out red skin is damnhellass hard to cover. Seriously. I have tried 300,000 products over the past year and this is the ONLY one that disappears the redness. This stupid red chin is the bane of my freaking existence.
In all fairness I went looking for the all green version and have just not been able to find it so I have had to keep buying the swirly version. It really does level out my complexion.... I just have to trade having a matte face which I really don't care for.
You will want to make sure that you buy the right shade as the last one I bought it a shade too light and it makes me look like a vampire.

I'm suprised about the bad reviews on this. I absolutely love this powder.I use it after moisturiser and a brightening primer on my eyelids and underneath the eyes. I start with a mineral concealer brush and put the beige color underneath my eyes, the pink one on my eyelids, the yellow as a highlight color on my brow bone and the green where i'm scared and red. I then take a powder brush swirl all the colors together and put it everywhere.
It is true that the powder is pale so go darker than you think! It can be a bit chalky so use a very soft brush on it (I use the one from the body shop). It's a great summer product and great for traveling. LOVE IT.

I am loving this product! My skin has become increasingly more difficult over the years because of dryness and irritation with so many products. Makeup has been looking absolutely awful and my skin looks actually worse with it on that off (except for the uneven tone). I've gotten to the place where the skin looked better with just a little concealer overtop moisturizer only because that was the only way it looked like skin instead of pronounced dryness and crepey texture.
So, I saw this product (along with the Airbrushed Talc-Free powder) and bought them both. I bought this Correcting Powder in Creamy Natural, which is just perfect for my fair skin. (However Creamy Natural in the Airbrushed Powder was just a little too dark whereas Translucent is perfect).
I think the key here is to get the right shade, and when you do, it is like magic. I brush it over my face with my fluffy brush and it is like erasing the redness as it evens out the skin tone.
I've read where people said it was too pale. I think since the point is to even out the skin, it will go on a little paler than the skin to even it out, which is why the right shade is important. I feel it is also crucial to use the right brush. I have tried this with a sheerer brush and it doesn't cover as well. With my fluffy brush, I just lightly swirl it around on the compact, then sweep / swirl it on my face. It covers perfectly but without looking thick. It is like watching the uneven tone go away.
Sometimes I have had makeup get too beige on me, which tends to make the red spots of my face more pronounced. I think this Correcting Powder would be a good solution for that.
When used on top of the Mineral Wear Airbrushed Talc-Free Powder, the result is gorgeous with the look of beautiful, real skin. So far I have not had a reaction to it, so hopefully I won't.

I normally wear a liquid foundation but in the summer, or on days where i just DO NOT want to try hard, this is *perfect*! I will admit the packaging is bulky and the brush is complete crap but really you probably have a blush or powder brush lying around that you could use. Also i am pale and this does bring out the white in me more but the coverage is awesome which makes up for it showing my true colors!! the look is so smooth and soft looking and it really does a great job of evening out your skin tone. I suggest that if u use this as your "foundation" that you wear the powder that you wear over your normal foundation over this because like anything else; you get oily after awhile. Yes you will need to wear concealor still under your eyes, but seriously, this is absolutly perfect for hot summer days when you dont want to wear a liquid foundation! perfectly natural, smoooth, easy coverage with SPF! i will buy again!

I was beyond excited for this. This powder has colors in it to help do more things at once with less products. This for me fell very short. The powder has a nice consistency and smoothed in pretty well. I am very pale and I figured this would look good. It actually made me look white which is so off from Creamy Natural. This also did not absorb oil very well and started to look bad from the minute I applied. There was no making this work for my skin. This compact is clunky and cheap plastic which I find so weird because this is rather expensive for a drugstore product. This product is just not worth it and I found nothing redeeming. Great idea, but such a bad formula.

PF Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Powder in Creamy Natural is absolutely amazing! It covers well... but it covers with a very, very pale, soft powder. I am about NW5-10, and Creamy Natural isn't too dark for me, so that should give you an idea of how pale it is. It cuts down on any redness and it kind of has a sheen to it--it's not starkly matte, which is the main difference between this powder and ELF Complexion Perfection, finish-wise. It's very soft and powdery, so transportation might be a challenge with this little guy.

I purchased this as part of a set and am not loving it. The brush is useless and the while the powder itself has a nice consistency, I find that it is so far off from my natural skin tone that I need to cover it with loads of loose powder to create a skin match. Double powder = creases and results in a very obvious makeup application. I'll continue to use it b/c of the price, but will not repurchase.

I bought this powder because after my store rewards it was free. It's really expensive at regular price, which is $14.00. This is a gritty powder with a weird white cast to it. It isn't creamy or natural. It doesn't control shine at all. However, when brushed on with a large powder brush after moisturzing, it does even out my skin tone and give me the confidence to go foundation-free and get out of the house quickly. Otherwise, this is a useless product. I will not repurchase, even if it's free.

I've very pale so I have the Translucent shade, not the Creamy Natural.
I got this because I've liked other PF powder correctors, like the SPF 16 green corrector and another whose name I forgot.
I don't use foundation so I liked that it gives a lot of coverage.
The color correction is really really good for my pale, cool toned skin. I was really, really happy with the color correction when I first applied it.
If I use even slightly too much or don't go over my face with my brush a couple of times it can look really cakey.
It also surprised me how oily I get within just an hour of putting this on. Usually PH is good for oily skin, but this doesn't go very well with oily skin so I have to blot which ends up eventually wiping a lot of the product off.
I'm going to finish the pan but I won't get it again.

Rarely am I as annoyed with a product as I am with this. At $13.95 it's not cheap for a ds powder and it's useless. Goes on like a chalky white, looks way worse than redness I want to correct. Don't be swayed by ds ads-save your money.

I needed a setting powder in a pinch, while on vacation in Hawaii. The drugstore was my only immediate option, and this powder looked so pretty (like Meteorites almost) I decided to spend $15.00 for it, (average for drugstore powder, I think.) This is compact containing a round, pressed powder which is molded into a multi-color "swirl" of peach, yellow, lilac, and green corrective color powders. Beneath the powder is a well that contains a tiny application brush. The product claims to be a, "High-tech Japanese formula," that, "delivers a natural-looking finish that won't cake, crease or settle into fine lines." After using this powder, my first thought was to wonder in which century BCE did Japanese cosmetic chemists consider this formula, "high tech"? Everything about this powder seems primitive as far as I'm concerned. The colors don't correct anything on my skin. They give my face a white cast, which looks a lot like I've dusted my skin with baby powder (ironic). The white cast, when highlighted, looks green. I could pull this off in Wicked, but it's not flattering in the least. The powder itself is THE most "powdery" compact powder I've ever encountered. It's more powdery than loose powder. It's like uncoated sidewalk chalk that creates twice as much dust. I held my breath when applying this, and I had to walk away to get air that wasn't full of powder. The brush included in the compact is hard, rough, and abrasive enough that I suspected it might be the cause of the excessive powdering. But, I tried my own brushes, and a couple of different sponges, but this stuff powders to a ridiculous degree. If I used it everyday, I would think it would be used up in about two days. The powder has to be blown off after application, which causes yet another surrounding cloud of "non-talc" substance to surround me. This is a total flop for me. Perhaps it works differently on fair skin, and/or dry skin. I have yet to try a Physicians Formula product that hasn't been "junk" on my face. Obviously this line works for many people, because its been around as long as I can remember, and it has a LOT of products, but it's awful for me.
