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

      I used this with different brands of foundation. I figured out after purchasing this that foundation and the powder you use after is very important. This was great in the beginning. It makes you go "Wow" after applying it for the first time after your foundation. Hours after, my oily t-zone looked so caked up I was mortified! This was with different brands too. I had to use my other powder with the foundation I used with this to see the difference. And yes, it was this that was the culprit. The concept is great. But once you put it on, it somehow divides your foundation. Have a really weird cakey and uneven look to you. It is very weird on how this powder has that much effect on the foundation. If this didn't fall in my sink and broke, I would return this. It made the pores on my nose very visible. Made the foundation on my nose look like I applied it in the dark. Horrible powder!

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

          Acting on the urging from an Ulta professional, I purchased this powder to be used as an eyeshadow base. I was instructed to apply it from brow to lashline before applying my shadow. I must say that I had my doubts, but purchased it anyway, partially due to the economical price. It works fantastically!! It gives a nice even color base to work from, and my shadow results are fabulous! Even, lasting color that stays put and doesn't fade. I haven't tried this product for use as intended, but highly recommend it as I have described.

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

              Being 43 I am starting to look at youth boosting/age defying type make-up. I thought this product would deliver but it does nothing but highlight and accentuate even the finest wrinkles! It makes your whole face shiny and shimmery looking- almost like you've had a long day and need a good make-up touch-up! I am told I have very youthful, near perfect skin, yet this product make it look BAD! In addition the applicator brush is ridiculous- takes multiple swipes to get product loaded- and then most ends up in a powdery mess in the air! I purchased a separate cotton puff applicator found in most powders. It went on better, but the results were still BAD!

                I wanted a powder that brightened my face without looking cakey. This does that for me. A youtuber recommended the product as a dupe for MAC MSFN. I've never used MAC products, so I can't validate her comments, but I am pleased with the PF powder.

                This is a nice translucent powder that is clearly labeled gluten free on the label! I spent money on the Bare Minerals products because a lot of them are gluten free, but they're also very expensive. This is a great alternative!

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

                    I have been using Napolean perdis china doll foundation for years but got a little tired of paying $50 for the tiny tube. So I went to Ulta trying to find a decently priced foundation. There was hardly any of my shade left over by the higher end brands. So I thought what the heck, I was in a bind because I was almost completely out at home. I have used this brand before when I was in college so I knew kind of what to expect. This youthful foundation is great especially if you use it with the youth finishing powder that has a bit of sparkle to it. It really makes you look bright and glowy without looking like you have flecks of glitter all over you. I may switch to this line for good since it was around $12! Great products!
