I’ve technically already reviewed the new Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Correcting Primer but that was the Pink Highlighter version so I thought I’d take some time out today to discuss the Nude shade with you.
Let’s have a look!
In all in one primer with SPF.
I pretty much loved the Pink version and the same goes for the Nude. If you’re not a fond fan of silicones in your primers you’ll adore the creamy, hydrating finish of this product. It smooths on beautifully well and leaves behind a protective layer between your skin and your base makeup allowing it to remain fresher for a bit longer.
The benefit of the product isn’t only the fact that it keeps my foundation in place for an extra hour or two but also the fact that it eases my dullness a bit and brightens my skin up plus it offers a bit of sun protection in the form of SPF 15.
It comes in a convenient click pen so you can twist, swipe on with the included brush, and blend out easily plus it travels easily in this style packaging.
I like the hydrating feel of the product as my skin is dry plus silicone tends to irritate my skin so this is a makeup God sent.
I don’t see a noticeably huge difference in my makeup wear but I’d say it adds a little extra life on and perhaps an hour or two more of coverage before my base oxidizes.
The product does a good job of multitasking a few different tasks although it doesn’t master any one of them in a major way it still comes across brilliantly well at this price and does a fair job of prepping, priming, holding makeup in place, protecting skin, and ease dullness while brightening skin.
The brush applicator isn’t removable and may make those squeamish about bacteria a little wary with continued use. You can avoid it by simply swiping product from the brush with clean fingertips rather than directly onto your skin using the brush.
- Anyone who wants a brighter complexion.
- Those with a bit of dullness that need a base to brighten up their skin.
- Those seeking to extend their foundation wear.
- Anyone who likes a hydrating facial primer.
- Anyone who doesn’t like click style pen applicators with attached brushes that are difficult to clean.
I continue to put my support behind these primers and definitely think they deserve a look at. Like the Pink Highlighter version, it did a great job prepping and priming my skin and just creating an overall flawless finish for my base makeup. At the price tag ($10.95 with a mail in rebate to get back your full purchase amount) you can’t really beat this beauty budget pick. After trying out both the Pink and the Nude I’m not sure I can see too much difference between the shades other than the fact the Pink seems to brighten my skin up a tiny little bit more than the Nude version.
Anyone try these new primers yet?
