I throw away the brush and found a good synthetic "kabuki" brush online. Swirl the brush in the powder, tap the handle with the bristles upright to set in the powder, and apply over your face in a circular, polishing motion. It looks natural with good coverage. For a really finished look I use the brand's green cover cream. It doesn't last forever, but it's great for my breakout-prone skin, and it's incredibly lightweight.

I was looking for a lightweight, sheer powder foundation. Coverage for this product, however, is so sheer that it is nonexistent. Also, even though this product comes with a brush applicator, plan on using your own brush - the one included is worthless. Because of the shape of the package, it is hard to load a quality kabuki brush without getting powder EVERYWHERE.

Would make an ok finishing powder.

    I apply this powder every morning and again if I'm going out in the evening. I've tried many brands of mineral powder and this is my favorite. It covers blemishes without looking cakey, and it has a natural translucence. It smooths out skin tones without looking "powdered."

    Comments about Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Loose Talc-Free Powder, Creamy Natural 2451, .49 oz:

    I'd never tried mineral powder makeup before, but wanted a little more coverage for tinted moisterizer. This stuff is great! It lasts all day, controls shine, and looks natural. Easy to apply and washes off just fine. I look younger and spend less time (ie: no time!) trying to freshen up in the middle of the day. Plus, whether it's the moisterizer or the mineral powder, I'm not sure - but my skin tone is evening out! The packaging is less than fabulous, though. I've got no issues with the brush - it's fine for the price point. It's the dual useless plastic lid combo that's awful. You're supposed to gently shake the powder into the shallow tray though the holes - but I can't make that work without taking the outer cover off and ultimately getting powder everywhere. (Watch out if you're wearing black...) The product is worth 5 stars and so worth it..the package is less than fab.

    I use this product with Elf's powder brush, and it works great! The shade matches my skin perfectly! Doesn't cause breakouts, and controls shine.

    i will definitely re-purchase it.

    Bare minerals broke me out because they have bismuth in their product.

    I didn't really care for the brush that came with the set though.

      I bought this make up about 4 years ago, and have never used anything else since! I have very acne prone skin and decided to go in a different direction from liquid make up. This was it. It doesnt make my acne any worse and even helps to clear it up somewhat. It covers well for me, I just use a small amout of conceler in trouble spots and work up to the covarage I need. Its fast and easy, which is great for me, being a new mom now. I do use some face lotion under it as well and that helps it stick a little bit more. If you are looking for a nautral look that covers well, I would realllllly try this product!

        If you are looking for heavy coverage this is not for you. Like all mineral powder foundations, this is more of a natural, medium coverage product., but it still covers redness and imperfections. I have the occasional breakout and just use a mineral concealer where I need extra help. I don't like the heavy painted mask look so this works well for me.

                Even though this is advertised as a foundation, it is more of a finishing powder. I have tried many many brands of mineral foundation and this just isn't a good one. It is very thin and has no coverage at all. Like I said, this is more of a finishing powder. I'm glad I didn't shell out too much money for it.

                  I love this powder! I haven't used powder in quite a while, but this is really easy to use and lasts all day. It looks very natural and goes on light - doesn't look all cakey like some powders do. Hasn't clogged up my pores either. Just gives a nice finishing touch to my makeup. The little thing it comes in isn't the friendliest to work with at first, but I've about got it broken in now & it's much easier now to get to the powder. That's probably the only drawback I've experienced with this product.

                    I decided to try this after having to give up my Jane Iredale mineral makeup because some of their products contain pine bark extract, to which I am allergic. I first tried going back to liquid foundation but it was horrible compared to mineral powder. The Physicians Formula has very few ingredients and was on sale so I decided to give it a try. I've used it for 3 days now and like it pretty well. I have to use a larger amount to get the same coverage as the Jane Iredale, however it leaves a nice matte finish rather than the shiny finish that the Jane Iredale had. I do not need to use a separate finishing powder. The only drawback is the brush. For best results you'll need to purchase a separate large foundation brush of good quality and probably also a small concealer brush for under the eyes, red spots, etc. Overall I am happy with this product so far. It seems to last pretty well but the good thing about a mineral powder is that you can reapply later in the day if needed, unlike a liquid.
