Review of Physicians Formula: Multi-Reflective Face Powder




 Information from their site:
Tag line: Self-adjusts to even out skin tone with a luminous glow

* Hypoallergenic, Oil-free, Fragrance free, Non-comedogenic, Dermatologist approved
  • Multi-reflective pigments contain chameleon-like properties, which diffuse light to optically minimize the appearance of fine lines and imperfections.
  • Rich concentration of multi-reflective pigments brighten up complexion with a subtle sheen of color for a healthy-looking glow!
  • Made with the finest Italian talc for a soft and ultra-smooth finish without irritating sensitive skin.
  • Compact contains a mirror and powder brush for ultimate convenience!
 *My Experience with the Face Powder:*
  • Price: Approx. $10 CAD
  • Net Weight: 0.42 Oz./12g   
  • Effectiveness: The neutral and translucent reflective powder brightens up the face and highlights facial features.  You get a dewy complexion and natural finish with the product.  I love that the formula doesn't look dry and powdery on the face, and it diminishes the appearance of pores. 
  • Cons: I personally can't use the powder on my whole face without looking oily or greasy. I wish this had SPF coverage then I can skip a step and I don't need to apply sunscreen.
  • Bottom line: It is a product I occassionaly use when I go out or photo day at school/ work.  It is something can live without and I would only purchase the product if it was on sale.
  • Grade: 7.2/10

Diagram 1. areas to apply the product to highlight facial features. For best results I apply the powder on my (upper and lower) brow bones, the bridge of my nose, cheek bones, chin, and cupid's bow, as illustrated in the picture above.

This product is very hard to find! Most often I use white eyeshadow as a highlighter. It was very much the same way ;)
