Review: Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Airbrushing Loose Powder SPF 30

I don’t normally wear powder foundations. I’ve tried several different brands, loose and pressed, and it just doesn’t give me the coverage I like.

Knowing this about myself, I still bought this foundation when I saw it on clearance at Walgreens. I don’t know why; I guess because it was a deal?

This is supposed to deliver “impeccable coverage for a flawless airbrushed finish.” It’s also supposed to minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage. It’s supposed to have 16-hour wear, and it includes a little kabuki brush for easy application.

Pros: I like that this comes with a brush. I took it with me on my trip to Boston, and I appreciated not needing to take yet another brush. I also really like the cap; it blocks off the sifter so powder doesn’t come out when you don’t want it to.

Cons: The brush is a bit scratchy, and it’s so small it’s a little hard to work with. Despite the cool flip cap, this ends up being really messy. Every time I’ve used it I end up with powder everywhere. The coverage is so light that it’s almost non-existent; you can still see my freckles, dark spots, blemishes, etc. and I prefer a bit more coverage. Like most products from this brand, the regular price is a bit high ($13.99) for a drugstore product.

Overall, I don’t like this. I wouldn’t buy it again. This just confirms my belief that powder foundation products just aren’t my jam and I need to stop spending money on them. I think my sister or my cousin might actually like it, so it’s going in my discard box for the next time I see them.
