Honest reviews



Aside from the terrible brush it comes with (insert your own) I love this powder! It is not translucent, but I have fair skin and it looks nice. You have to be careful not to put it on too thick or it will look cakey! I love the flawless look this helps me achieve. I was in a wedding recently and it made my skin look really nice in the photos. I don’t have acne issues, but my skin doesn’t look even on its own. This is my fav compact so far – I even like it better than the Mac I tried.

Good powder

Ok so I bought this in the wrong shade, so I use it as a highlighter, it works well I really like that it has sunscreen in it.

To start off this powder is NOT translucent….it is probably more pigmented than other non translucent powders I have used.I am blond and very fair–this color seems to work well for me. Good coverage!It gives a very nice matte finish. I am very oily and acne prone, and I havent had any increased oilyness or breakouts whatsoever. No weird smells to the makeup, and it’s not itchy to me. No hives here.Another reviewer mentioned that this makeup oxidizes and turns orange on your skin after a while. I have been looking out for that, and haven’t really noticed anything to that affect. You know how power of suggestion works.It comes with a tiny brush that kinda makes you want to laugh, but it collects the powder really well, and doesn’t waste. Wheras when I use a powder or kabuki brush alot of the powder is wasted. I like it better than having a sponge that collects dirt and oil then just sits in your makeup. This brush can be washed, dried, and stored seperatly from the makeup in a compartment under the pan.After using this powder a little longer I will update my review. 🙂

Might be good for someone else

My skin is very sensitive and acne prone so I rarely change face products, but I gave this powder a try since it is mineral wear and Physicians Formula is usually a good product. Unfortunately, the results weren’t very positive. I tried it 3 days ago and it went on very smooth, covered nicely, and gave my skin a nice matte finish which is great since by midday my skin is usually really oily. After I put it on my skin was a bit itchy for about 15 minutes, but I wasn’t concerned since I thought that it was probably just my skin adjusting to something new. I checked my face after lunch and my skin looked even oilier than normal which surprised me, so I blotted with an oil sheet and dusted a bit more on with the little kabuki brush and it looked fine again. (The kabuki brush is pretty flimsy, but it works fine and I have a really nice one that didn’t apply it that much better.) The next day there was no itching at all so I thought it was fine, but when I checked my skin around lunchtime my skin was super oily, my pores appeared enormous, and my face had an orange cast to it. I used an oil sheet, put some of my old powder on and couldn’t wait to get home to wash my face. Unfortunately, I woke up the next morning with a face full of acne. I did really like the initial results of the powder, but my face was an oily mess after a few hours and after using it for 2 days I now have a face full of acne to deal with.I think this powder might be great for someone who doesn’t have oily or sensitive skin, but if you are like me and don’t have perfect skin, then you should probably to try something else.
