      I bought this on clearance at a local store and i am happy that i did. It goes on nicely leaves a matte finish. Only bad thing i noticed was the smell. In my opinion it smells kind of weird but other than that i like using it.

      Too Orange and Thick

      • Lightweight
      • Long-Lasting

      Cons

      • Difficult To Apply
      • Poor Coverage

      Best Uses

      • Acne-Prone or Oily Skin

      Comments about Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Youth-Boosting Illuminating Foundation:

      I bought this in the lightest tone my Ulta offered, which was Light. This has a slightly orange cast and is too dark for my fair but freckled skin. The foundation is thick and mousse-y, but with small beads (for moisture?) inside. I found this was difficult to blend smoothly. While the included brush was a nice touch, you'll need a beauty blender or flat-headed foundation brush to get good results. I would rather pay less and not get a new brush each time. I will try this again, but in Fair.

      Comments about Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Youth-Boosting Illuminating Foundation:

      This is a very FAST drying matte foundation. Try using a small amount for each application area, instead of squirting out a lot of product. I did not have enough time to use the foundation brush since this dried almost immediately once I put it on. For those with combo skin; oily t-zone and normal/dry skin put on a great daytime moisturizer and eye cream 15 minutes before adding this to your face. For the first time, I use a damp sponge to blend this light coverage foundation only on the areas that I want to even out. This foundation does last throughout the day and washes off easily .

          Comments about Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Youth-Boosting Illuminating Foundation:

          I love this foundation! I have found it very difficult to find a paraben-free foundation that is not mineral-type powder. I prefer crème or liquid application because it is easier to control and does not end up all over my clothes and counter. The Youthful Wear goes on "silky" and provides a nice, medium weight coverage. I really hope that Physicians Formula continues to make this.

              I've been using this foundation since it first came out. I love the coverage. I don't have deep wrinkles (yet!) but it really helps hide the creases I do have in my forehead. When paired with the powder my skin looks like it's glowing! Goes on smooth and even every time. I love that the brush is included!

              Bottle said light shade but was still too dark or orangey for my fair complexion. Needed a lighter shade for fair skin. Easy to apply, like the squeeze bottle
