      Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Face Powder:

      I have been using this product for a long time and have been completely satisfied with the product and the cost of the product. I have combination skin, and this covers perfectly all day long. You have to be careful not to apply too heavily. A little powder goes a long way.

        Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Face Powder:

        This is a great powder foundation for those looking for light-to-medium coverage that is buildable. For a light airbrushed application that gives you sheer coverage, use a big fluffy face brush to set your makeup. For a medium coverage application, use a dense kabuki brush to pat the product into place and then buff it into the skin. For an even more concentrated application, use a sponge to swipe the product across your face. This gives great coverage, still allows your skin to breathe, looks natural, and stays put throughout the day. It is a very soft powder that could kick up a lock of product, so make sure to pat into the compact instead of swirling. It does not emphasize dry areas on my face and instead leaves them looking very airbrushed. One thing I love about this product is that it hides the pores and blackheads on my nose very well without looking cakey at all. Because it is a powder, it does not cover major blemishes, so a concealer is still needed for those purposes. If you're looking to simply even out your skin and cover acne scars or other flat blemishes, this is great. My only negative about this product is that the color selection is extremely limited. I am about an NC/W20, and Creamy Natural is a tad dark on me, so it can seem a bit orange if packed on too much, but the next lighter shade, Translucent Light, seems a bit light but could maybe work for brightening purposes. When I'm careful though, Creamy Natural matches fairly well. I would definitely recommend this if you're looking for a good powder foundation - just make sure to get it on sale!

          Nice alternative to the Pur Minerals powder I used to use. I like the Pur Minerals a little bit better--it seems to cover better, but the Physician's Formula works well and is a much less expensive option.

            I use a big brush an apply over foundation or a face lotion. My skin is very oily and acne prone and I love this powder, it doesn't make me break out. It covers well, and it's affordable. Will keep repurchasing!

              I usually purchase BareMinerals. After drying my face out and paying way too much money I decided to sample this product because it was so cheap and good for my skin. I have been using this for two weeks and so far I love the results. It doesn't cake on my face and its lightweight. I can't stand feeling like I have product on my face.

                Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Face Powder:

                Out of all the mineral makeups I have tried this is still my favorite. I could not stand using BM I never could figure out what the hype was and to me it seemed very unnatural looking, almost chalky on the skin, had to use far too much to get good coverage, did not last long, and for what it did was not worth the money.
                I do wish they had more colors but since they do not I have settled on Sand Beige. I have a medium skin tone with neutral undertone. It can look the slightest but dark if I just swipe it on but if I apply it with a kabuki or ELF professional powder brush, the flat top one, The coverage and shade are great! I apply my revlon concealer and then this on top and my face looks great.
                Sometimes if my skin is not the best shape I use my revlon primer and then apply this and it also makes it last just a tad longer. Since I have oily skin nothing last on my but this looks great, and I can reapply if I need to without looking hideous.
                I really love this for everyday, as well as work but usually will opt for my revlon whipped for work.

                Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Face Powder:

                After trying many (possibly all) expensive powders (so expensive) over the past decade on my sensitive skin.. I decided to try this brand as a friend recommended. Ever since, I refuse to even look at any other powders!! My skin feels better with this on than it does completely bare! Nothing compares and my wallet is much happier! I buy in bulk when this stuff goes on sale, not that it isn't already well worth the price. One compact lasts me almost two months. I boast this brand to everyone I know, since I'm not very popular, I often consider shouting my love for this product from rooftops. Consider this review my virtual rooftop.

                  I really enjoy this product. It blends very nice into the skin. I use it on top foundations or BB creams to set them. The finish is very nice - it's not too matte, but it's also not super dewy. I naturally have dry skin and this doesn't irritate it at all. The product is so smooth and silky on the skin. It creates a nice canvas for the rest of your makeup.
