Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Physicians Formula, Mineral Wear-Talc-Free Mineral Face Powder w/SPF 16 applies so smoothly and puts a nice veil over your finish make up to tighten it all Lynn and reduce your pores even more. This is a wonderful powder for veiling and also for setting the rest of your face, in conjunction with baking your face. Overall, all I have to say is good things about this powder and I deafly want to just others with any type of skin, since it makes your face so baby smooth!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s hard to find a translucent (or nearly translucent packed powder that’s talc-free. I’m a big fan of this one. Two qualms: The packaging is bad. In my experience this brand has great products and notoriously bad packaging that breaks within weeks. Also, it does have a yellowish/orange cast. I would love a real translucent powder that doesn’t leave me with a ghostly white look but also doesn’t add yellow under my eyes. As a face setting powder though, it is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's super nice to It's super nice to find a talc free powder foundation, especially one with that little extra spf! It's pretty good coverage, at least with concealer. Liquid foundation doesn't usually like my acne prone skin, so I prefer powders, and this one is one of my favorites! I use their pressed powder now instead of this one, but they're very comparable; their ingredients are really similar! I just think the pressed gives a little better coverage and lasts longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this because I'm a preschool teacher and I don't have time to fully reapply my sunscreen before we go out on the playground. I realize that's not considered a flu reapplication but that's the best I can do. The product sets the makeup I have on underneath very nicely. By the time I put this on my makeup is just starting to fade. I really like the light color coverage this gives. I don't think there's anything I would do to improve this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best face powder I’ve ever purchased! A little definitely goes a long way with this powder to set your makeup. That being said, you get awesome use out of it for the small price you pay! It goes on super light, but does a perfect job of setting makeup. The veil of color it gives is just enough for days where you don’t want to go through your full makeup routine, and I find my self just putting on some concealer, this powder, and mascara often!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this everyday in my makeup routine. I have the fairest of fair skin, and the translucent light shade has been the only mineral wear powder I’ve tried and continued using for over 8 years now. My mom first introduced me to it, and ever since I have lived by this brand for my foundation, powder, and lip plumping needs. I have tried almost all their products, the ones I mentioned now I live by. Their other items work really great as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What can I say? The coverage is buildable and can definitely bring you to full coverage. It gives a nice matte finish and keeps your makeup set in place for almost a full day. I'd definitely purchase this one again because it used to be a holy grail for me until I found something else that I ended up really liking more. This is a great powder for those who are just starting out and want a really quality powder to set there foundation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst purchase ever I purchased mineral wear face powder because my shade in my usual brand was unavailable and I was too busy to run to another store. I wish I hadn't. Same coverage as my usual brand but I have only had it 2 weeks an I an seeing the bottom of the compact! My usual brand lasts almost 2 months. What a rip off!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have purchased that powder foundation several times and I really like it. I use it over my sunscreen and on its own. I find that it gives a good light to medium coverage. The coverage is buildable, but I would be careful not to apply to much of it, otherwise it might look a little cakey. I have fair skin with pink undertones and the shades Translucent and Translucent Light have been working perfectly for me (they are a great match). I find that this powder helps covering the redness, making my skin look more uniform, and helps control the oiliness of my skin a bit. It is formulated with sensitive and breakout-prone skins in mind and it shows! I have not had any irritation or breakout from it. I actually find that the appearance of my skin has improved. I love that this has no talc or fragrance in it and I really hope they never change that formula or discontinue this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been using this product for probably the last 10 years of my life and no matter how many other products I try I always come back to this one. The product allows for a nice build able coverage and it makes you skin look perfect. It also gives you a nice matte finish. I find this product lasts all day and night (I always use with my UD all nighter spray) and it never causes my skin to break out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this powder forever! But the packaging is terrible I love this powder! I have very porcelain skin and I can use this in "translucent light" which I have found to be lighter in color than just the "translucent". This powder never breaks me out and I always come back to it, especially when I feel like Im having skin issues I can rely on this makeup to keep me looking nice without feeling like Im exacerbating the problem. Ive used this for years and I dont plan to stop. The only reason this has a 4/5 though PF is because the packaging sucks. I wish there were no brush included (bring down the cost!), smaller packaging with the mirror on the lid like normal compacts and just enough room to put a puff inside. I hate how bulky and floppy this is (breaks easily). Also, I wish there were more colors available, when I recommend this to people only a few can actually find a shade match which is disappointing.<br />Thanks PF!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this powder foundation, it is very buildable without getting cakey. Skin still looks like skin, and has a semi-matte finish. HOWEVER there are not many shades available, I'm biracial and can only use this in the winter when I'm pretty pale. I wish they would expand their shades, but unfortunately it's been more difficult to find and I think it's being discontinued instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is by far my favorite face powder, I’ve been using it since high school and I’m so committed to it I get nervous trying to switch it up. It powders up easily, so it’s not overly pressed to the point you have to work to get it onto the brush. I also like the face that it has SPF, and it goes on smoothly and not chalky. It blends well and for the price I have no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best! Cue the music. Simply the best. Better than all the rest. For this sensitive rosacea prone skin this talc-free powder is a dream. It doesn’t irritate and has no gluten or fragrance. Yep, the best. I love to use it to set my makeup or lightly on its own for no makeup makeup days. Love the finish. Hard to find cosmetics that are this gentle and work this well. Love this stuff!
Date published: 2020-12-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING FOUNDATION! I have really sensitive skin and some acne scars and this foundation is so gentle and covers up really well. I just put some concealer underneath and my skin looks soo perfect! I recommend the translucent shade for lighter skin because it matched my skin perfectly; every other foundation was too light or too dark. Such a great foundation, I highly recommend giving it a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful My new favourite pressed powder. I wear this as my foundation -- alone over my moisturizer. I love it! Light to medium build-able coverage without a heavy feel. Skin can breathe. The finish is matte at first and settles to a nice natural finish. I have repurchased this many times and will continue to. It replaced my Clinique Almost Powder -- which was a lot more money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Physicians Formula, this pressed powder especially. I always use a liquid foundation then a powder over top my liquid. When I first used this I was blown away by the way my face looked and felt. I looked flawless. My skin looked perfect! I try to stay away from drugstore band makeup but this brand is one I'll always run for!! I HIGHLY recommend trying it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST POWDER Ive tried many... been using this forever. Unfortunately, For Pale to Medium skin tones only... I am pale in winter and i use the translucent and trans. light. I use as a foundation powder but I always spray/set my face for natural look. Also recommend MINERAL WEARÂŽ TALC-FREE MINERAL CORRECTING POWDER, for brightening and a light coverage concealer option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have been using this powder for the last decade and I usually choose a shade between my summer and winter skin tone because it's usually in between. Summers, I'm usually a little darker due to outdoor events for work and in the winter, I'm usually indoors, so it's the perfect in between. It provides a great sunblock coverage without being too heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another winner from Physicians formula!! This powder is great for setting makeup. It’s light enough for my pale skin and sets my face great without taking away any coverage. If anything-it adds a bit of coverage. It’s a smooth powder-never too heavy or cakey. Offers spf. And it’s talc free so it’s great on my sensitive skin. I grab for this on the daily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you’re looking for If you’re looking for an affordable more clean powder then this is your go to. I used physician formula for years until I found myself buying the more expensive powders as I got older. It kept my oily skin at bay for a few hours but I always carried it with me to reapply a brush or two mid-day. It matched my medium skin perfectly and doesn’t feel heavy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is nice for This is nice for dry, sensitive skin. No talc which is great! Keeps your face looking fresh if you need a touch up this is great for that! For a drug store brand I would recommend. Not irritating to my sensitive skin also doesn’t make makeup look caked. Texture is soft and nice. I think it’s a good product also didn’t cause any breakouts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just bought this mineral face powder from a drug store for around ten dollars an I absolutely love it!! I put it on over my full coverage foundation an it makes my skin appear so natural an soft I have very sensitive skin an this product did not happen my skin at all..I would highly recommend this product as a budget friendly solution

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I am so pleased with this makeup. I decided to try after Clinique discontinued a makeup I had been wearing for a decade. This is perfect. Wonderful color match and great coverage. My only complaint is the brush - it’s really streaky in applying the makeup and it kicks up a ton of powder. I find this works best with a sponge applicator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my go This is my go to product. If I only put one thing on my face everyday it's this. I do my morning routine, put on my daily moisturizer and will apply this. It adds a nice matte, natural finish without drying my skin out, which isn't always the case with a powder. It also evens my skin tone and removes any redness. It's a must have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my go-to This is my go-to powder. I've used many Physiciana Formula powders over the years, and this is great for smoothing my skin ans providing light coverage over my redness on days I need something to make me feel a little more pit together before leaving with a bare face, buy it also is a great setting powder over liquid foundation.
Date published: 2021-07-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm not much of a heavy makeup wearer, but if I want my makeup to have a clean finish and last extra long, I use this powder after applying foundation and before using my Mineral Wear Matte Finishing Veil - when I don't need heavy stage makeup, this does the job! I've also used it without foundation and it works just as well!
Date published: 2018-10-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! The only concealer I use. I can't stand the oily feel of liquid concealer, and most others are too thick for my skin. This stuff is perfect! I've been using it for years now! It's light and easy to use. The only thing I do is use a big brush I buy at the store to put it on, not the teeny little brush that comes with it.

Is the Mineral Wear pressed powder in Translucent Light (2796) no longer available? Creamy natural is too dark for me and translucent is too dark. Please bring this shade back, Physicians Formula pressed powder is that only brand my skin can handle.

I want to use this as a setting powder to add a little coverage on problem areas such as my under eyes. I have extremely fair skin with neutral undertones. Which shade would be best for me?

Is this a powder foundation, or just a powder?? Not very clear on what product you're actually purchasing, on ANY of the face makeup frankly, besides the liquids...

Asked by: Crazyred81
I've used it as both for over 10 years because it doesn't cake, crease, or turn orange on my oily/combo skin like other pressed powder foundations - but I throw away the little brush it comes with. As a foundation, I apply it with a flocked disc sponge for buildable medium covereage. When I want a setting powder, I use a big brush.
