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!

Beauty Haul – Combo Mix Makeup

Happy Friday friends!

Finally, I got some of the makeup for this week’s beauty haul that I have been meaning to talk about. I got them from different drugstores and at Target. So, this is going to be an exciting haul since as you can see they’re sort of a mixed an match haul. Let’s see what I hauled in the bag 🙂

beauty haul beauty haul combo

elf HD Blush in Diva  from Target for $8.00 (net wt: 0.34 fl oz). 

Maybelline Big Eyes Waterproof Mascara in Black (net wt: 0.29 oz)

The Body Shop Concealer Pencil in 04 for $12.00 (net wt: 0.13 oz) 

Nivea Pure & Natural in Milk & Honey (net wt: 0.17 oz)

Physician Formula Happy Booster in Bronze/Natural (net wt: 0.38 oz)

Sax Elegant Makeup Book in Fantaisie de printemps for $7.99

elf hd blush

I picked this elf HD Blush in Diva because it has such a lovely and vibrant color. I tried it on my hand before picking it up and the pigmentation is remarkable. It might be a little too pinkish for me but I have to try it anyway. I just love the fact that with just a tiny squish of this formula, is enough to cover both my cheeks. There are 5 beautiful shades available to choose from.

So, a little goes a looong way. Besides, the price is reasonable and the quality is good. I like this bottle packaging that comes with a pump. The downside of this elf blush is that is has a heavy color stains. I feel that it’s impossible to blend well especially when it started to dries up. You will like it if you have been using liquid blushes before.

eyepalette sax

Sax Eyeshadow Book is another item which I picked up at  my local drugstore. Sax is an Australia cosmetic brand. I put a link here SAX. I just loved the packaging and bought it for that reason. There are 12 color shadows and all having shimmery finish. Average pigment formula and soft in texture. It consists of 2 pretty blushes which has nice dewy coverage. I paid $7.99 for this book.

maybelline masara big eyes

The next is Maybelline Big Eyes waterproof mascara. Well, I’m not a big fan of mascara because it gets messy on me but when I do, I love to wear pretty mascara that can elevate my lashes more. I picked this because of the duo ended brush. One for the upper lashes and the other end for the bottom lash. I read some good reviews on this product and so I wanted to try it.

the body shop concealer

The body Shop Concealer Pencil is something that I have been longing to get. Since I have dark circle under my eyes, this is like my most wanted makeup ever. It masked blemishes, uneven skin tone and redness. It has 5 color shades to select. Definitely a good buy for me. Anyways, I will try it and share  my 2 cents in my next post.

nivea lip balm (2)

Okay, this Nivea lip balm is more of a random picked since it was on sale. I have used Nivea products before but never on lip balms. So, I don’t mind trying it out and see if I like it. And since I have too many lip balms already, I’ll give it to my husband to use. It has these pure and natural formula that I’m sure my husband will love.

physician formula blush

Last but not least, is the Physician Formula Happy Booster. It serves as a bronzer and blush. Again, love the packaging. It’s light and has a mirror on the second tier compartment that comes together with a brush. Will definitely try it and review coming soon!

So, there you have it. A combo mixed of all the beauty haul that I have purchased and hope you like it.

When was the last time you bought a random drugstore makeup? Please leave comment below. I love to hear from you.

Thanks for reading.
