Most Helpful Positive Review Could be a best seller if more shades
This product is better than the talc free mineral powder but it needs more shades. Because of the higher spf, it leaves a bit more of the white cast on skin. If the pigment was a bit warmer, slightly more golden or peach, it would warm up the skin making it appear more natural in office lighting. It has a beautiful airbrush like finish. I get so many compliments during the winter time when I am able to use this. Please make shades so that I can wear this during the summer months as well. Most people tan during the summer, and need something a bit more golden/peach.
Most Helpful Critical Review Made my Pores look huge!
I've heard good reviews on this product and generally like PP products! This one was a major fail for me. I have combo skin, and was looking for a good powder foundation with an spf, this one looked good. It has some light shimmer in it, and while I love a nice shimmer/highlight, this was terrible. It emphasized my pores, I swear I could see every one and they looked huge! And highlighted any wrinkles/expression creases that I made during the day. I tried it with various primers, moisturizers etc... I really did want to like this product! Major fail for me!

I love the smell. Its a very easy product to built up and still looked beautiful. I love how it protects my skin on the sun. If I would change one thing , it would only be for it to be a little more Pigmented.

This powder is okay not my favorite but I love the shade range and the formula and great for my dry skin and I think would work on other skin types . I would like to see a bigger shade range for darker skin types but would recommend if you were looking to try something from phacisians formula

When I first started wearing physicians formula this was my go to product. I loved the way it smooths out your complexion and gives a nice matte finish. It also has SPF 30 to protect you against the suns harmful rays. I would say try it its worth the price.
I would buy this product again
Heidi from Blackwood, NJ
I usually by Covergirl but I saw this one was on sale so I figure I'd try it. It definitely matches the color I usually use. It comes with a small brush instead of a pad or puff to apply it and still getting use to that but other than that, it seems to work the same.

herzy from undisclosed
This is my best kept secret for years. I dont even need setting powder this has the same consistency of the butter bronzer and it kind of melts into your skin to look exactly like your skin texture but it is also so pigmented that it covers any imperfections. Its also great for sensitive skin. And its such a fair price compared to the smashbox version, which actually did make me break out

Not a great product. And an even worse brand. Anything but physicians formula is what you should be reaching for. Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Airbrushing Pressed Powder SPF 30 - Translucent

athenaa2 from undisclosed
I like this for the spf and the light powder application. The brush it comes with is trash, but in a pickle will get the job done. I use this throughout the day to keep my sunscreen on. I will not buy again, Im oily and the powder is too light to help with the oil.

beccav1995 from undisclosed
I remember when I had awful acne scarring, this was the highest coverage powder that I could find. And for the best price, too. Love that it has SPF, and the compact makes it easy to throw in your bag and go. Only con is that it made my skin slightly dry, so I always made sure to use a hydrating primer or moisturizer underneath. It helped with that. Works amazingly with a kabuki brush. I also used a sponge too, if I wanted more natural/light to medium coverage.

This is a great setting powder but for the price I can buy 2 of another drugstore brand that works exactly the same. However, if you have allergies to some of the drugstore brands I would highly recommend this one to try

I wanted to love it, but It came out looking cakey and had a cast to it. I tried with multiple foundations and on my oily-er days. No such luck for me. Giving it 3 stars because it did have a gorgeous finish at first and did add coverage.

jillw1 from undisclosed
I bought this to touch up my makeup throughout the day due to the additional SPF, but it's really not translucent. I have fair skin, and the color of this powder is too dark for my skin tone. It otherwise didn't irritate my skin or make me break out. I might like it more if it came in lighter colors or was actually transparent, but it currently doesn't work well for me as-is.
