Review for: Natural Beige more...
When I purchased this product at Walmart there were only 2 shades available. Natural beige turns orange on me but I lighten it with loose powder. It has a very natural, skin like finish which I really enjoy. I have acne prone skin & it does not make me break out. Although it does not completely cover my scarring i do like the coverage. If you're looking for something that's gonna cover everything I would skip this. I use this for everyday light makeup. It feels nice n smooth on my skin. I enjoy this formula I would just get a different shade. I don't like the brush it comes with. I put some product in the large lid & I dip my dampened beauty sponge. I would repurchase.

Review for: Translucent Light more...
I love physicians formula as it’s super gentle on the skin. This powder is great (albeit a bit messy). It’s definitely mattifying and great for setting my makeup. A little bit goes a long way and I’ve been using the same powder for over a year!

Review for: Buff Beige more...
This is the first mineral/loose powder foundation I've ever purchased and surprisingly, I really like it. I haven't used a regular pressed powder in years because I don't usually like how they look on people, but I took a chance out of curiosity and tried this stuff. I purchased the shade creamy natural and the color is very spot on, which also surprised me (especially since I purchased it online). I like the way it sets on the face and how blendable it is. I haven't had time to play around with it much yet, but so far I've achieved light to medium coverage with a very small amount of product and small amount of time. I will most likely buy the mineral powder foundation again and I definitely recommend to anyone that enjoys powders. The only 2 negatives I have about this product are the holes the powder comes out of, they could be a little bigger or there could be more holes, and the brush that is comes with. I'm not very experienced with brushes, as I prefer a blender/sponge and usually liquid, but the brush does seem a bit rough. It's not unbearable, just gonna take some getting used to. Overall, I think it's a very interesting product and an excellent powder foundation.

Purchased at: Amazon
I recently experimented with Mineral Wear (Natural Beige) whilst out of my usual CC cream. As normal I first moisturized and then used my usual Clinique purposely-dried-out pore solutions primer to fill in the pores on my nose and cheeks (texture becomes more solid like clay and actually fills-in literally anything), then applied Mineral Wear with my very own kabuki brush starting from t-zone and blending outwards. Results: excellent skin-like coverage with some decent SPF in (it contains Titanium and Zinc oxides) meaning no separate SPF required. Although my skin can get oily I had no breakthrough for approximately 6 hours, at which point I used some blotting paper to remove any traces of shine. The shade I got is ever so slightly lighter than what I would normally use but this appears to be a universal problem with this. Please bring out more shades!

Other than that, for natural-looking medium coverage that doesn't accentuate fine lines or pores, this will do great, especially in winter when my skin is at its palest and I get my closest match

I recently found this on clearance at Target for $3! So I hope that doesn’t mean they are getting rid of it because I love this powder it has become a new favorite! One of the few I have found that doesn’t overly dry out my skin and look too powdery and cakey it is a soft matte that sits on the skin so naturaly and feels so light but still adds some additional coverage I like to set my face with this after applying liquid foundation and it holds my makeup in place and controls any oil throughout the day nicely makes my face look smooth and airbrushed highly recommend

Review for: Creamy Natural more...
I have pretty pale skin and blonde hair and blue eyes. I purchased this from Ulta for $14 I believe. I purchased it in the time creamy natural. I have combination to oily/acne prone skin. I like that this is a finishing powder with a. Tint, it adds extra coverage while also setting my whole face makeup. Very affordable, will purchase again. I love that it is Non-Comedogenic and Vegan and Cruelty Free. Only thing I am not a fan of is the “kabuki brush” it comes with. It is not like a regular “kabuki” brush. I use my own brush to apply. Great product though.

Review for: Soft Ivory more...
Lord bless their hearts with that scratch brush! It went on and was streaky you had to really work and push in to blend it out, and the brush felt like kitten claws kneading in my face! Way to scratchy! I wish it was easier to work with because once it’s one the formula is nice and light, the coverage is okay but if you have freckles like me or dark spots it’s not gonna do the job alone.

I really do love this product! I just use it all over my face to set my foundation. I have very fair skin but the translucent medium shade of this powder matches me perfectly. If you want more coverage, it goes on lightweight and is buildable. I wish that you got more product for the price you pay though, and it is a little difficult to get the amount of product you want out without making a mess but overall a great product!

Great finishing powder and a cheap dupe for bare minerals mineral powder! Not the best for oily skin to wear alone but gives a great finish over liquid foundation and stays on all day! The brush is comes with is useless but I have plenty of good powder brushes to use it with. And it lasts forever!

Is this any better than the pressed powder? I heard good things about the pressed powder and was disappointed.

Do you use this as like a translucent settings powder ? Same thing right ? If not, what's the difference?
