Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Airbrushed Pressed Powder SPF 30

This new Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Airbrushing Pressed Powder with SPF  was featured in my  summer oily skin top picks  post, but I loved it so much I thought it deserved it's own post.

I love powders and a powder with SPF is a must. Despite this I have never tried any of Physicians Formula ones in the past. I have used  others that I loved , these were all sheer and invisible basically. Nothing wrong with that but  for variety and because I love the finish powder  gives you, this new one is a total win because it leaves behind a perfected , flawless  finish. It looks so good. I didn't expect that.

Over makeup, it perfects , smooths and gives light coverage  , on bare skin it has a little coverage and a nice , slightly more than sheer finish. So it can be worn either way. I use it over my makeup in the AM to perfect and add an extra layer of SPF and  again later in the day  if I need a touch up  . When it's hot  you, or at least I, usually have some makeup melt and this makes up for the SPF loss over the day as well as a  retoucher   .

The compact comes with a flat kabuki brush in the lower compartment but I prefer a pouf  or my larger kabuki buffing brush.

Mineral Wear feels super light on skin , doesn't feel or look cakey and  is talc free with 15% Titanium Dioxide and 10% Zinc Oxide for solid sun protection .

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Airbrushing Pressed Powder SPF 30 comes in 3 shades: Translucent, Creamy Natural and Natural Beige. Mine shown  is Translucent ( It looks darker in the compact than it  goes on. )

Retail is $ 13.95
