Rated 3 out of 5 by from Old formula was better Like many have been saying, this new formula simply does not compare to the old formula. I could always count on the old formula for great coverage and the color was better. The Creamy Natural in this new formula is significantly darker than the old formula and I can't use it anymore. I bought as many old versions as I could find, but now that I'm out, I'm searching for something else that can compare with what I was used to. Bummer to lose a holy grail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used this I have used this mineral powder as my foundation for over a decade and I love it! It has recently become harder to find, so I’m nervous that they’re discontinuing, but I sure hope not! Being from Texas, where the humidity is high and summers are HOT, I am not a fan of liquid foundation. However, my skin is on the dryer side, so most powders make that worse, but not this one! This one provides great coverage, while still allowing my freckles to show through. It evens out my skin tone and blends seamlessly. When paired with a good concealer, it can completely blur the look of any imperfections.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's not bad, it's not great, it's just fine. I was really hoping to like this. I was a HUGE fan of the previous powder - it was like my secret weapon! I used to get so many compliments on my skin. This powder isn't as good and I'm really disappointed in the packaging. The sponge brush it comes with is laughable and it is difficult to get my own brush into the bottle. My overall thoughts are that it's not bad, it's not great, it's just fine. I do not plan on purchasing again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from PLEASE bring the old powder and brush back!! I've used this for years and I'm so disappointed with the new powder and packaging. It doesn't feel the same on my skin, it's more irritating. I don't even know what the point of the sponge is...for a loose powder?! Please, please bring back the old version, I would've used this for life.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back the old version I complained about this 8 months ago via email and I'm seeing that I'm not the only one that hates the new formula, new package design, and especially the useless sponge. I used the old product (in the oval shaped container with the brush) for a very long time....probably 20 years and I loved it! Everything about this new design sucks. Please listen to your loyal customers and bring back the old formula/design!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was kinda really I was kinda really impressed with this powder! It's shockingly good. I will be honest I am makeup snob I normally wear high end powders but I had acquired this powder from buying it on sale for just a few dollars when I had accidentally left my makeup bag at home 1 day & was in pinch & needed to buy jus enough makeup to look like a decent human being & It definitely helped me look like decent human! The powder wears nicely & has jus enough coverage to help cover. So if you are balling on budget & want a good drugstore powder grab this! The packaging is kinda wonky but whatever.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor customer servive Your customer service is so poor I actually cancelled the order. I ordered from 2 other companies on May 4th in addition to yours and received said orders in 10 days ... while Physicians Formula had not even processed my order in as many days claiming COVID 19 had slowed order processing down. Other companies don't seem to have a problem , why do you ? I'll no longer use your product for this and other reasons. I understand you are no longer cruelty free and that is a big priority for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Old powder was better Old powder was definitely better. The worst thing about the new powder is the sponge applicator. I put it straight into the trash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Makeup Powder I have been wearing this powder as a foundation for so many years now, it's the perfect shade for my pale skin and I dont get any breakouts from this makeup. It's so light and doesnt cake up on my face. I love this powder so much and recently found it hard to find the shade translucent light in any stores near me and was disappointed thinking it might have been discontinued but happy to find I can purchase it right from Physicians Formula website still, I would love it if stores in Windsor Ontario would stock this shade more but please dont ever discontinue this line or shade!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formula sucks! Ive been using this powder for 10 plus’s years and have been struggling so bad with dry skin for the past 6 months. I just found out this formula changed and im starting to think it could be this powder. My makeup looks chalky and ashy :( I had no idea the formula changed and I’m not going to continue to use it anymore . Bring back the old powder please!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back the old formula PLEASE!! I agree with all of these reviews - and really hoping the brand listens to their longtime customers. I have used the original formula for over 10 years and and this new formula is awful. It's clear that your decades-long loyal customers are very disappointed. I have been searching everywhere - Ebay included - to find the original. Please bring it back!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back old formula!!! I have been using positions formula loose powder for over 10 years, this new formula and packaging is awful and very disappointing. The new formula looks very ashy it doesn’t melt into the skin like the old stuff did. Please bring back the old formula, if not you just lost a loyal customer of 10 years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Miss old version... I’ve used physicians formula for years and have had to stop using the loose powder ..the color I’ve used forever has been discontinued and for some reason my face tends to break out more now and the new sponge and new packaging just doesn’t work for me .. I really miss the other style with brush .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from overall good, but light shade is too dark I have light medium skin and usually buy light-medium foundation. This is way too dark, and surprisingly, is still the lightest color. I never had this happen, it's buzzard. Overall the finish and look and feel is nice and I like that it has SPF, I can pull this off at my darkest in the summer and have worn it, but am tossing it as I don't want to hold onto it for next year. If there were more shades and this was made medium, I'd try it again in a different shade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for sensitive skin only powder that works on my skin, i was about to give up on makeup when I tried this. please never stop making it! there are not affordable brands for sensitive skin people. Ive seen PF changing the type of products they make. it makes me sad. I hope they still care for people like me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Super Bummed I LOVED the old formula. Used it for years and it was perfect for my sensitive skin. I'm very disappointed with the change. No "soft ivory" and it irritated my face. Guess I need to look for a new foundation for the first time in 8 years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whenever I do my sisters makeup I use this powder because its the only one she owns. Im happy that out of all the powders this is the one because it works great. It sets in place very well and keeps the makeup in place. Its also a VERY GOOD powder for lightening spots when you bake your face. However the applicator provided is kind of odd and useless, your better off using a beauty blender. Also the applicator tends to, in a way, hold on to the product so its hard to get a good amount on the face at once, similar to how a beauty blender can soak up liquids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this powder! I love this powder! I have no idea why it has low reviews!! I used it for years then tried other powders and now I'm back!! It's truly an amazing powder for the price!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why is there no brush????? I've always used mineral powders with a brush. I dont even know what to do with this sponge Why change a good thing? Sad face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this loose powder with SPF I was looking for an SPF powder when I came across this one. I would prefer a higher SPF but I used it over an SPF tinted liquid sunscreen so the extra coverage is a bonus. I find this has ALOT of coverage for my face. I use the Translucent Light and I use the Creamy Natural for contour and when my face is darker in the summer. I don't now what the old formula is like because this is a recent purchase and I really like it. I do not use the sponge it comes with because it doesn't distribute the power very well. I just use a large brush instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't know what I would do without this foundation. I have extremely breakout prone and dry skin and I have had so many compliments about how clear my skin is with this stuff...WHAT!!! It covers all dark spots and acne. I have not strayed away from this brand since I found it when I was 15. Doesn't make you break out and is a reasonable price at CVS and Walmart. I legit love this brand and will probably stir the pot with this comment but it is better than any other brand out there with a firm full coverage brush to push it into pores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just bought this I just bought this recently on Amazon. it was on sale, and it was worth every penny. I love the way it feels on my skin the way it makes my skin look; it totally pulls everything together, so nicely the color perfect for my skin. It's a very light powder soft, a little shimmer to it which is nice .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have sensitive skin I have sensitive skin and find that Physicians Formula never causes me irritation like some other brands can. I love that this product has sunscreen in it and provides pretty good natural-looking coverage (I usually just use this powder with no foundation). Negatives are that it can be hard to find in stores and they updated it within the last year or so for the worse...awkward packaging and applicator and the shades seem to have changed a bit too. I’m lucky in that I’ve found a shade that works pretty well, but not a big variety.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It has been a It has been a few years since I have used this mineral powder from physician formula but back then when I had used it it seemed to work pretty well but it was awfully drying to the skin and I am a little bit more on the oily side of combination skin so it was kind of disappointing on that but I'm sure that they have done new formulas of it since then so it might not be so bad drying wise now. I like the container it came in small and simple with a lid so it doesn't get all messy everywhere and a little Kabuki brush comes with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product covers everything on my skin.. I have little to no acne. Covers my freckles and doesn't feel heavy or look doent help at all with oil but I like a dewy look. I love this foundation only problem I have is the color doesn't match me. Plus it oxidizes . Creamy natural is way to orange I wear ecru in Estee lauder double wear and creme brulee in huda. This was way to orange. I bought light translucent yesterday hoping it gives better results. * fingers crossed* I'll update on how it worked out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Negative on the new mineral wear loose powder. Why would you want to change something that worked? Was so glad to see all the other negative reviews about the change of the mineral wear. From the new container to the new ingredients and new colors. Please go back to the old mineral wear. Shaking my head. What a bad move ladies.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bring back the old brush I am saddened that I will have to be looking for another brand of mineral wear powder. I have been using the loose mineral wear powder in buff beige for about 8 years. I loved the full coverage it provided and the only make up that didn't make me breakout! About a year ago I could not find the powder in store NO where! I called the company and was told there new powder is the same thing just repackaged. I ended up finding the original ones online from Walgreens and bought the last 8. Now that I finished them I decided to try the new ones and am very disappointed No full coverage and the brush in comes with more like a sponge I do not like the color does not match my skin tone. Hopefully in the near future they will change back until then I will be on a journey to find something new.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Extremely Caky I bought it recently and I was super excited to try as I could easily reapply spf on my makeup, however, the first time I used it was at beach with my friends and I got extremely surprised and embarrassed that why it looks so caky. I gave it 2 other tries and same thing happened again and I really hated how my skin is looking and wanted to remove it immediately. I love physician formula products but this was really a disappointment! I got the other SPF 30 translucent powder today to try that instead.

What shade replaced translucent medium?  I am scared to try the new product after all the bad reviews!  I will go back to my old Lancome product if I do not like the new formula

Asked by: Andrea1234
My mom used to use the medium and she switched to the light as well and it looks good on her still and she is much darker than I am most of the time

Why isn’t this company answering any questions on this website? Do they not even care about their customers? I have questions but doubt they will answer. My question is what color replaced medium translucent color?
