Physician's Formula has great face powders, so I was excited to try their new Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Powder.  This product is part of their new Super BB line that also features a cream and concealer.


I don't get excited about face powders easily-- in my eyes they are one of the more "blah" products of the makeup world.  However, I am really impressed by this one.  It has a medium to full coverage and somehow makes my skin look fantastic.  The company claims this product "provides a smoothing effect that instantly diffuses imperfections, evens out skintone and minimizes the appearance of pores."  I experience all of these when using this powder.  It isn't very often that a product actually lives up to all of its claims!


This powder comes in two shades: Light/Medium and Medium/Dark.  I have the Light/Medium and find it is a good match for my complexion, though I do think only two color options is quite limited... surely they won't match everyone!

The powder has a slight sheen to its finish, which is hardly visible but must contribute to why it makes my skin look so great.  I've been lightly applying this on top of my Dr.Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm and the combination has perfect medium coverage.


This powder comes in white compact casing, and has a bottom compartment that includes a mirror and small brush.  I don't really ever use these sorts of things in compacts, but for people who use them on the go they can be handy.


Bonus: this product contains SPF 30!  Another reason I'm loving it for summer.  I find that this powder wears all day on my skin with no problems.  If you are looking to try a new face powder that has some coverage, I highly recommend this one! (My only complaint is that it is called a BB Powder... can we stop with the false BB naming already?!)


The Physician's Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Powder retails for $13.95 (8.3g) and can be found in most drugstores, as well as Drugstore.com!

What is your favorite drugstore face powder?

I've been trying some new Dior products recently, and one of my favorites so far is the oh-so-popular Shimmer Powder in Amber Diamond.  I have heard beauty bloggers rave about this powder as a highlighter for years now, so I decided to go ahead and try it myself.


Amber Diamond features five different shimmery colors: an almost-white, light champagne, bronze, rose gold, and peachy gold.  You can use these shades individually or mixed together.  I like that this powder offers a variety of different colors depending on what you are looking to use it for.  I like using this as both a face highlighter and eyeshadow.  The bronze/rose gold colors are gorgeous on the eyes, and the almost-white is great on the inner corner and brow bone.  All five colors work nicely for a face highlighter.


The formulation of this powder is really great, and the colors are a perfect balance of pigmented and sheer, since you don't exactly want your highlighter to be entirely opaque.  The lightest two colors are hard to see in swatches on my fair skin, but they do look just as nice as the others.  The bronze and rose gold colors look extremely similar when applied.


Amber Diamond comes in Dior's classic navy blue compact casing.


The Diorskin Shimmer Powders contain 10g/0.35 oz of product and retail for $45.  Dior products are expensive, but with 10g of this I know it will take me an eternity to use up.  This product is available wherever Dior makeup is sold... I found mine at Nordstrom.


Overall, I'm very pleased with this powder and will be getting a ton of use out of it this summer!  What is your favorite face highlighter?
