              Gives a nice light finish to "blur" lines and inperfections. Does not cake up or settle in lines. Seems to really brighten up my face.

                I was looking for a pressed powder that was paraben free and found this one. I love how smoothly it applies. The price is reasonable, too.

                  You have to be so gentle when using the applicator or it crumbles. And when you put it on there is very little coverage. :( I wasted my money.

                  Comments about Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Youth-Boosting Mattifying Face Powder:

                  This is going to be a 2-part review.

                  The Powder

                  This is an amazingly soft creamy full-coverage powder that I use to touch-up during the day. When traveling, I've even been known to use it as a finishing powder after my makeup, if I don't have my loose powder with me. I sometimes use a thin puff with it. Other times, I'll swirl it on with a kabuki brush, kind of like you do with mineral products. It's excellent. I'll touch up at my desk right after lunch, and it lasts well into the early evening, even through my workout.

                  The Packaging

                  The packaging is a complete disaster. It's a 2-part container that's become popular lately with many products. The powder rests inside of a slightly domed lid, and an additional bottom portion opens up underneath to reveal the sponge/puff applicator. While I do appreciate the sponge/puff being included as part of the product, I hate the thick bulky packaging. I suffered through carrying it in my makeup bag for months until the lid's hinge finally cracked from use. I wondered for awhile if I should just depot it and put it in a Z-palette. Today, the powder pan came loose on its own when I opened it. Fortunately, it didn't drop out or break. I love the product, but am very very hesitant to repurchase only because of the packaging. I take off one lippie because of the packaging.

                  I would, however recommend this powder to anyone looking for a really great touch-up pressed powder.

                    Very nice product. A little pricey, but had a coupon--so worth it. Makes skin look velvety smooth if you apply over foundation. Does help oil breakthrough better than with nothing, and I have super oily skin.

                      I like the matte finish. However, I might try the dewy formula, too, just to find out which I really prefer. This really finishes the face make-up and makes you look GOOD!

                      I'm in the middle about this one. It controls shine fairly well, but feels a bit heavy.

                          I really didn't expect this powder to be that high quality!!! It controls shine so well, and appears so natural and silky!! I got it for half the price with the buy one physician formula product, get the second 50%off... Didn't expect this affordable priced stuff to be that good.
