Review of Physicians Formula: Talc- Free Mineral Wear Foundation

* The foundation was a bit darker than my natural skin tone, which is okay - I just looker tanner with the product on. I should have brought it in a shade or two lighter.

*The Claims for the Talc-Free Mineral Wear Foundation*
* For extra sensitive or breakout-prone skin!
* Ultra-gentle formula helps reduce irritation and breakout.
* Anti-microbial sponge delivery system for effortless application and easy blending without the mess or contamination.

*My Experience with the Foundation:*
  • Price: $10.45 CAD
  • Effectiveness: I hate Marcelle's Matte Finish foundation, because their product makes me break out. Thankfully, I found PF Mineral Wear! This foundation is great for people who have acne prone skin and/or sensitive skin.  The medium coverage foundation has a smooth and creamy texture. The product glides on and it was very easy to blend. Also, the Mineral foundation is comfortable to wear for the first 6-8 hours, and the product didn't irritate my skin at any point of the day.  You only need to use a very small dab of this foundation to cover the whole face and acheive a smooth and natural complexion. 
  • Cons: Smudges, feels a bit heavy as the day progresses, no SPF protection.  
  • Bottom line: This is the best foundation that I know of for people who have sensitive or acne prone skin. 
  • Grade: 7.5/10

I love mineral makeup but it's so pricey. Glad to see PF makes affordable mineral products. =)

Ewwww, I hate Marcelle's too. It's very greasy! I am currently digging True Match but I'll check out PF as well. =) Thanks!

It's seen this at Zellers and it ain't cheap. I was wondering if the spounge traps bacterial and causes acne? TIA

Hahaa, you're right the foundation does make your skin much tanner. It looks nice though!
