      Used on top of my physicians formula spf 50 beige and translucent beige foundation, this mineral powder bronzer gives outstanding color and coverage--natural and lovely, with added spf protection for my peace of mind (I've had two skin cancers surgically removed on the face, with scars to show for it, so I need serious skin protection and this is IT). OK, so with a nice cosmetic brush of my own, this powder mineral bronzer does make a bit of a mess in the sink, since it's looser than a packed powder would be, but I've learned to just load up the brush gently and apply it lightly all over my face for great coverage--no streaks, heavy areas, and it stays on all day. The color (with foundation below) is right on the money--just like a summer tan for my medium skin, and not too orangey. Does not irritate my sensitive eye skin area either, and the price is great at drugstore.com. I like this product better than my packed bronzer spf 20 by physicians formula--the mineral powder goes on much easier, with more natural color. I also am a former devoted buyer of Bare Minerals spf 30 foundation/bronzer, but I like my physicians formula products much better--they last longer, more economical price, better color and coverage, never a clog in the applicator (a huge problem with Bare Minerals foundation/bronzer spf 30) and physicians formula is also a breeze to find online at drugstore.com (instead of begging my salon to get in a new shipment of Bare Minerals).

        This is really a great blush, however it is very soft, so if you aren't careful, you'll apply too much. It is a very good product!!! The shipping dept. needs to wrap this in bubble wrap when shipping ! The first one arrived all crumbled, however it was quickly replaced ! No problems, Thanks

        Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Face Powder SPF 16, Bronzer, .03 oz:

        An outstanding pressed powder, the best I've tried (and I've tried them all, ugh). Talc-free, fragrance-free mica-based pressed powder that gives me full coverage like a liquid makesup. Contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide sunscreens, not those chemical-type sunscreens that degrade and need re-application in the sun. Excellent texture for a powder, and becomes almost like a second skin after application. It can can get dusty as you swirl the brush over the compact, but suspect this is because the powder isn't pressed as tightly as others.

        Unfortunately only four shades to choose from, but they are neutral (neither orangy or pink). I used the lightest shade; not sure why people are using this for a bronzer, not surprised they aren't happy with it because it's supposed to be a face powder.

        I used to use Bare Minerals, but quit after finding this compact powder: much happier with the coverage and convenience. I would have paid much more for it. The tiny, flat brush this comes with should be tossed in favor or a full-size professional powder brush.

                Great product! I have tried all the expensive brands out there to find the best bronzer powder. This powder is natural looking and does not make me break out, which I am prone to do with other powders. One suggestion- buy yourself a nice full bronzer brush for better application. The small brush provided is terrible and does not give you even distribution. Spend a little extra for a nice brush and you will love this product just as much as I do!

                Very natural looking and super easy to apply. A good product for the price. Only gave this 4 stars as the powder broke up without having been dropped. Once it breaks it's a mess to use. Probably just a fluke, so I will buy again. TIP: Make sure to keep your brush clean as the powder will go on much better. To clean it: Wash the brush with any mild (oil free) liquid facial cleanser, dry with a towel, then let air dry for a day or two.

                Looks great - keeps skin from becoming oily. May cause skin to become slightly oily, so its best to use a moisturizer before. Being called Mineral Makeup and good for your skin, it hasn't done much for my pimples. But the color matches really well.
