Dudes, I somehow got fraked up at CVS and paid $11.99 for the new Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Correcting Concealer and it’s listed as $8.95 on their site. Not cool CVS, not cool at all.
Totally in a bad mood about that but I’ll survive as it was worth the extra moolah because I likey ALOT!
Check it after the jump!
I could be bias and I’m probably only liking this because of the lego factor. I dig legos and this trio reminds me of ’em.
What it is?
It’s a snap together trio that corrects, conceals, and highlights. They are little plastic tubes that snap together to create one unit and unsnap as a trio of bits and bobs to correct all your woes. Sweet right? See? Lego factor!
The trios are made up of a yellow corrector (be gone dark circles), a light beige concealer, and a pink highlighter. I admit the highlighter proved fruitless for me as I’m not much for highlighting but hey it works great to dab on the highbrow for a little bit of a gleam.
The corrector and the concealer gave me the most joy. The formula is a little tiny bit drying so be sure to moisturize well prior to use. Dab on a little yellow first and blend out and proceed to follow up with the concealer. Done! Fresh eyes! The yellow does a great job of erasing dark circles in a flash and is plenty pigmented to get eyes in order. The concealer does a good job of toning down the yellow and creating fresh, awake eyes. I thought perhaps using both would be a tad too much for my eyes but actually it was fine and both blended out well, were pigmented to hide my problems, plus didn’t crease, fade, or cake up. Loves it! Each bottle has a sponge tip applicator for easy application plus once snapped together the trio is super travel friendly.
I do admit that the bottles are pretty tiny for the money but the formula is so pigmented you only need a little so you should get plenty of uses out of each.
Overall, I absolutely loved it. I admit it’s a tad wasteful as I’m not taking full advantage of the highlighter but the concealer and corrector are totally brightening up my world at the moment. Granted, this isn’t going to turn into my HG (holy grail) concealer of choice but it does a damn good job of creating gorgeousness under these tired eyes.
