I’m constantly, obsessively looking for ways to brighten my skin up and make it look its very best. Anyone with me?
I turned to Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Correcting Powder recently to see what it would do for me and I’m having a bit of a love/hate relationship with it.
Check it out!
Tell me whatcha think!
A 3 in one corrector, primer, and powder creates in various tones of pink, green, and yellow for correcting skin tone and delievering a natural finish sans talc.
This is interesting product which combines three separate colors which perform various tasks.
It comes housed in a clear plastic compact with a dual compartment. The top side houses the powder and the bottom, stealthy compartment, houses a brush and large mirror. I really love this packaging as it’s really simple, clean, and free from a bit splashy logo!
The powder itself is a translucent powder made up of swirls of Pink, Green, and Yellow. Pink is meant to brighten your skin, Green to tame redness, and Yellow to add warmth to your skin. The colors pretty much blend together to create a fine milled powder that evens complexion out, erases signs of dullness, and brightens.
Now I love this but I will say it is SO easy to over do it. My first try I looked like a little kid who got caught playing with her mum’s loose powder or perhaps a kid that clapped two chalk board erasers together. So much for translucent. You have to be very careful during application and blend out fully or you will be looking all kinds of Nicole Kidman.
Now I’m a bit tanned at the moment, much to my dismay, so it doesn’t particularly look fantastic on my skin however with proper blending it looks half way decent. Moral of the story, I think it’ll work best with paler, fairer, creamier skin tones as I thought it looked best on my skin when it was considerably lighter.
Sadly, the brush is useless as it’s very scratchy and sheds horribly but this is typical fare with Physicians Formula brushes.
- Anyone who has red cheeks or red splotches that need taming!
- Anyone who has a dull complexion that needs brightening up!
- Tan, olive, or darker complexion should probably avoid.
- Anyone who doesn’t have the time or patience to blend powder out carefully.
I like this well enough but it’ll never take the place of my beloved Physicians Formula Pressed Powder which performs way better and doesn’t cause a ton of drama to blend out. The powder does do what it promises but having to struggle with it and not add too much and blend out correctly, etc…is sometimes a tad bit of a chore. I do think anyone with redness in their skin will find this particularly useful. So far it’s a love/hate thing for me.
Not bad, but not a fav of mine from Physicians Formula.
Anyone try it?
Not so much?
By the way there’s also a cool concealer trio that was released with this. I reviewed it a few weeks ago, do check it out here!
