Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Face Powder:

I was really looking for talc free and this compact fit the bill. I'll add a little after work and it takes me through the evening without shine. My only problem is that this comes with a brush instead of a puff/sponge applicator so it leaves some makeup dust loose on the surface and guess where the brush goes...under the makeup, so you have to flip the powder upside down, letting loose a little shower of powder, in order to put the brush away.

    Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Face Powder:

    I've been using this product for the last 3 years. It is the BEST foundation I've ever used. I was a Bare Escentuals user for a long time even though it was out of my price range.

    The problem that I had with BE was how long it took to build up the coverage I wanted/needed. The color selection was also hard for me since I'm between a fair and medium. I'd have to buy two and mix them. Way too expensive.

    The coverage is perfect. You can get the look you want the first time around. If you tend to have a dry patch/area, apply a little moisturizer before you use it. My skin is combo and I just add moisturizer to my cheeks, eyes, and forehead first.

    It does not look chalky on me at all. It has a matte finish and does a good job at absorbing shine. It doesn't make my face break out at all. Great for that use.

    I've tried the loose version and didn't like it as well. I've also tried and would NOT use the 16 hour coverage version if you have oily skin. I tried it and it gave me a very shiny look and breakouts.

    Every time I turn around I'm worried that this product will be gone forever. They seem to be out of my shade a lot. I buy 3 and 4 at a time. The manufacturer does a lot of BOGOs on this one too. Great price! You should give it a try if you're looking for something quick, easy, and at a reasonable price.

      Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Face Powder:

      I've been using this product for years, because i can't find another that I like and/or matches as well within the same price that doesn't make my skin breakout. My only wish is that it wouldn't break apart. Almost every one that I've bought has broken apart for no reason. Doesn't matter whether I keep it in a makeup bag, sitting on my counter, in a drawer, purse, whatever. I'll just find it one day with cracks all across its surface.

      So decent product, but ridiculously delicate.

      Perhaps better packaging is in order?

        Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Face Powder:

        I was out of town on vacation and realized that I had forgotten to pack my face powder. I ran to the store to pick up something to just "get me thru". This was the product I chose. That was over two years ago and I am still using this product. It turned out to be a wonderful discovery for me because the original powder that I was using was more expensive. I love the coverage. I apply with a powder brush over my foundation and it goes on very smooth and even. It does not feel heavy on my face. It stays on and looks good thru out the day.

          Love the pressed powder foundation. Goes on smooth and touches up easily. I prefer to apply it with a makeup sponge instead of the brush that accompanies it. I've tried +$30 similar products, and this is just as nice.

            Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Face Powder:

            I have been using this product for a little over a year now- I love it. It does not clog my pores/make me break out. I feel it does help control my oil in the t-zone, although in the summer it is inevitable. It is a little messy when applying, but not that bad in my opinion. It is a powder, so naturally it won't cling to your face without a primer or some sort of base. For the last year I used it just as a powder & was perfectly content with the coverage and stay. However, I recently started using a primer & definitely feel it helps the makeup stay on longer without touch ups.

              Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Face Powder:

              I order my regular foundation online, and when I'm waiting for a refill to be delivered I run out and grab one of these to use in the interim. Physicians Formula is great because it won't make you break out or irritate dry skin. I apply this powder with a foundation brush to reduce the redness in my face. It's sheer coverage - don't expect any miracles - but it does create a smooth, even finish. For best results, layer it with bronzer on the edges of your face, below your cheekbones, and on your nose; it'll bring light into your complexion. This powder doesn't clump, and it was still usable even after I broke one of the compacts. Overall, well worth the money. A great starting makeup for younger girls.
