    Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Illuminating Powder Duo SPF 16:

    Honestly, I was really excited to find this powder duo. My color fluctuates during the Summer and I like the idea of being able to customize. Also the fact that it is a natural minteral powder and sunscreen in one was appealing. Unfortunately, it looks like I've applied a glitter base to my face. It is SO shiny! Not even just a little but it makes your face look greasy or reflective. I understand the concept of "ilumminating" but this goes beyond.

              I had high hopes for this product as none of the indredients are on my lists of even mildly comedogenic ingredients (I believe my current makeup may be causing me to breakout). I found that it actually has okay coverage when applied correctly (dab on trouble spots first then blend) - it covered my redness and also red spots from breakouts well. HOWEVER, that's where it stops being great. I found the color to be very unnatural - which suprised me - my skin looked orange/red compared to surrounding skin...so much so that I had to take it off and completely start my makeup process over again. Also, if you're going to try it, you definitely need to use your own brush.

                  Used product after applying my moisturizer and the blue dye on brush was then transferred to my FACE... Not good. Dye on brush is cheap & fades... PF needs to go back to their natural brush; product is good but use your own brush!

                    I always mix my minerals- different brands,shades, etc.and get great results- so this concept just goes along with what I already do. I keep this one in my purse, in case I need a touch-up at the end of the day.

                    I really like this product. I feel that the quality is as good as Bare Minerals and much less expensive.

                    Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Illuminating Powder Duo SPF 16:

                    I usually describe my self as a budget buyer but I may have to become a brand buyer because of all the bad luck I've had with cheaper products. This product was just an ordinary powder with a weird container. When I first bought it I used it a few times and decided to clean the brush with brush cleaner and my opinion changed completely. I used the brush cleaner and the blue tipped brush, which I thought used actual blue bristles in the middle, bled onto everything I own. The blue bristles are dyed with very low quality dye that comes off with water. I was stunned when I tried rinsing the brush and the water was bright blue. The container the powder comes in wasn't thought through very well. The powder is extremely hard to get to and when it does come out it goes everywhere.
