I’ve tried it all, it seems. I love makeup and “girly stuff!” I’ll be sharing my product reviews with you and would love your feedback on what I should try, too!
Today I’m looking at Physician’s Formula Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls.
I’ve started a hunt for an excellent highlighter at a drugstore price. While I do use both “higher end” and “drugstore” make-up products, I always do an extra jig when I find great make-up at a bargain price. Especially when this is not a necessary product—it’s sort of an extra thing to play with. No one knows how much I paid for it once it’s on my face, right? They just know if it looks beautiful or not, and I know if it feels good, wears well, and that I saved some money!
I purchased Physician’s Formula Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls in Translucent Pearl to test as a highlighter. Here’s some good news on this powder: PF Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls is hypoallergenic, fragrance free, paraben free, dermatologist approved, and non-comedogenic. In the package it has a gorgeous pearly shimmer, but that pearly shimmer was gone after a few uses. Disappointing. It does add a subtle, all-over-face light bronzer, but nothing to really rave about. While lightweight, it’s pretty muted and very powdery. The fastener on the front of the compact broke when it was practically brand new. UGH! The included brush is lame, but included brushes usually are. I’m not sure why companies still include those knowing that most of us don’t even use them anymore. I wish they’d put more money into the cosmetic itself, and drop the brush. Or improve the brush. I’ll brag on you if you have a great included brush—I’m looking at you, Benefit Hoola Bronzer. But, back to PR Formula Powder Palette in Mineral Glow Pearls… Some say they are a dupe for Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders. I completely disagree. No way. Nope. I just don’t love these… So…
I give Physician’s Formula Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls in Translucent Pearl a 1 out of 5. I will use up what I have left, but I will not be re-purchasing. I say, “skip it, ladies.” I’ll keep looking for a good one for you!
