Pros:great coverage, natural, doesn't cake up

Cons:none

The Bottom Line: Yes, especially to those with oily skin.


I've been using Physician's Formula Mineral Wear Loose Powder for 6 months now. It comes in a 0.49 oz container with brush included. I like that the brush just stays in the container without you having to search for it in your purse when you want to put some make up on.
I've tried all the major players in the Drug Store Mineral Makeup arena...Neutrogena Mineral Sheers, Loreal Bare Naturale, and the newest Revlon ColorStay Mineral Makeup, and I have to say that Physician's Formula Mineral Wear is the best out of all them.
I have very oily skin and I need medium coverage with my makeup. Physician's Formula does a very good job of giving me the coverage I need without looking heavy. Loreal Bare Naturale had enough coverage but it looked very cakey when applied (even if only a little was applied) and was too opaque for me. Physician's Formula has no opaqueness and I'm very glad about this because I don't need my face to look any shinier than it already does (I believe this is because Physician's Formula does not contain bismuth oxychloride and Loreal Bare Naturale does). It's also much more natural looking than Loreal Bare Naturale. I usually wear Physician's Formula all day and because my skin is oily I blot it with some blotting sheets and just touch up my make up and I'm all set to go all day.
It also does not cause any breakouts on my face whatsoever. I tried Revlon ColorStay a couple of weeks ago (just wanted to see what it's like) and when I did I had a new pimple every day that I used it. It was horrible! I believe Revlon gave me so many pimples because it contained Talc...Physican's Formula is Talc Free.
I've heard that some people don't like Physician's Formula because it dries their skin out somewhat. I've had no problem with this because my skin is oily but I do need to put on an oil free moisturizer every day anyway. I put on the moisturizer regardless whether I'm using Physician's Formula or not.
I really love this product. I've tried the other ones because I was curious to see what's out there and so far I have not been impressed with anything except Physician's Formula. I also want to add that just because it works for me it doesn't mean it's going to work for everyone. Obviously, everyone's skin is different.
