Mineral Wear Cushion Foundation Review





Seriously, wouldn’t this packaging reminds you of a pin cushion? Well, I don’t know about you but I definitely think so. As much as I like physician formula beauty products I’ve to admit that I picked it up because I was totally drawn by this pin cushion packaging look.


I think Physician Formula launches their new line of product last December. It may not be totally new for some of you but it’s still new to me.

Good news guys, this Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free All-in-1 ABC Cushion Foundation  consists of SPF 50. It is a weightless mineral formula that promises to blur fine lines, correct visible imperfections and give skin an airbrushed finish while protecting it with a SPF 50 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen. Cool right! Continue reading …


Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free All-in-1 ABC Cushion Foundation (for CAD$16.95) is one of two drugstore cushion foundations you’ll run into this Spring. The other is the new L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation which is selling for over $20.00 price tag.

I really like this one!


My only complaint is that this Mineral Wear Cushion Foundation sadly arrives in three color selections only. I afraid not everyone is going to fit into their Light, Light/Medium, and Medium shade range. Very limited color options. But if you’re lucky enough (their light/medium tends to be a perfect match for me) to fit into one of those three shades, let’s just say you’re in for a treat.:)


This cushion makeup arrives in a cute blue compact. On the face plate you’ll see that it looks like a spongy cushion. It has a sturdy dual-lidded cover. So, the first lid opens up where you’d see a small mirror and a compact sponge while the second layer is a snap closed method to prevent the product from dying out.


Here’s an up closed picture of the sponge.

I don’t know why I like cushion makeup, I guess because a lot of the time I find the consistency of the texture super lightweight yet creamy and easy to blend.

So what is a cushion foundation? Good question if you’ve never used a cushion makeup before. They are simply a sponge saturated with foundation which you can press into to release the product onto a makeup sponge (yes you can use your beauty blender my dear), your brush or even fingers.

I personally prefer using my beauty blender and it kick out the products nicely and blend very well. It didn’t set immediately as I feared which is good. It gives an average medium coverage but if you’re looking for full coverage than this product will not be to your liking. The formula is lightweight and it gives me a pretty natural look.


I really like the smooth finish of this product, truly it does look airbrushed and it wears like a champ at around seven hours without fading. Yay!

It is a little expensive at $16.95 for a drugstore brand but it has a $9 mail in rebate offer from now until December 2016. So go and pick yours if you haven’t already. I recommend it. Make sure you pick the right shade, I know that some drugstores accept returns but do check with the store’s return policy first.

Lastly, I feel that this cushion foundation is light, natural looking, easy to wear and apply well. This one had absolutely no issues with formula wise except one just wishes they would extend the shade range so everyone could partake it such a great formula.

Let me know if you have tried this cushion foundation? If yes, what do you think in the comment below.

And that’s it for today’s review. Thanks for stopping by to read. I’ll see you on the next one. Bye!

  1. ugh 3 shades? After looking at your close up, I can almost guarantee that I am between light and light/medium. I have a cushion foundation from IOPE and I like it but it’s still too light for me. sigh. Physician’s Formula usually gets a thumbs down from me-I feel like they are all talk and no action. However, I did just purchase their Butter Bronzer and really like it. I’m wondering how long the cushion foundation wears?

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Yup! I wish they have more color options for different range of skin-tones. I have the love/hate with PF on some of their products I’ve tried. But I really like their Quad Eyeshadow Palette. I wear it everyday for the past one week and it lasts just about all day on me. It would easily guess that it would take me about 2-3 months to finish.


  2. The packaging of this is TOO CUTE! I still don’t understand why the foundation has to be soaked in a cushion. Wouldn’t the formula just be the same if it was in a bottle? Glad you like the foundation finish though.


    1. Yes, the formula is just the same as a liquid bottle foundation. In this cushion format, the product is saturated with liquid foundation for easy application and/or to help avoid any spilling from bottle packaging. I find that it makes picking up the product much easier than pouring them out on hand to apply.


  3. I have heard so many bad reviews for this product, and it makes me excited to see a good one! Personally, I can’t find a good color match and the formula doesn’t work well with my oily skin type. However, I a so glad that this works for you!
