I see Physicians Formula has come to the cushier side of things glamour babes with their new Mineral Wear Cushion Corrector + Primer Duo. I spotted these a few weeks back at CVS and purchased both compacts; Yellow/Green and Lavender/Peach. I was becoming a little bored with Physicians Formula, which is why I stopped purchasing their cosmetics. I felt all the makeup was the same, but with different packaging to entice the consumer. Not for nothing, they aren’t exactly cheap for a drugstore brand. I grow tired (as I’m sure you do) of constantly paying for the same blush shade that’s wrapped up in pretty packaging. I want something new and completely out of the ordinary like their Mineral Wear Cushion Correctors! I’ll totally pay $17.99 for them. I know the cushion compacts are a big in Asia. AmorePacific and Etude House (same price range as PF) are just to name a few, and are cruelty free by the way. So I’m glad the cushion compacts are starting to make way in the U.S.
Obviously, this is the first ever Cushion Corrector + Primer Duo Physicians formula has created. Let’s hope they don’t churn out 30 more of the same thing, lol. Less is more. It is a weightless mineral formula that has skin-transforming benefits of color-correction and the skin-perfecting effect of priming in one revolutionary cushion. I have a whole new appreciation for color correctors. I didn’t think they made such a difference until I really got my hands dirty with them and saw an overall improvement in my skins complexion.
Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Cushion Corrector + Primer Duo’s come housed in a quilted pin cushion mirrored compact with a dual sided cushion sponge applicator. I thought the pin cushion was such a cute concept. Yep, I got sucked into the packaging aaaagian, lol! Could you Blame me?! At least there is a different product inside.
The Yellow/Green is the correcting compact. Yellow conceals dark circles and dullness, green corrects redness.
The Peach/Lavender is the brightening compact. Peach brightens darkness, lavender brightens dullness.
The consistency of the corrector/primers are somewhat runny, and apply sheer and soft, almost pastel like. They quickly absorb into the skin upon application and can be worn alone or on top of makeup. The sheer lightweight formula is oddly buildable. Apply as much as you like, it does not get cakey, streaky, or set into fine lines. The all in one ABC (airbrushing+blurring+correcting) cushion instantly corrects imperfected areas such as; dark circles, redness, scarring, and uneven skin tone creating a flawless complexion while lightly hydrating skin. Making the Mineral Wear Cushion Corrector Compacts suitable for all skin types. I use the peach for my scars, yellow for dark circles, green to tame redness due to my scars, and lavender to brighten my skin tone. Hopefully my photo shows you how remarkably well these Compact cushions work. I think I will be switching over to them. I enjoy the lighter formula over the concealer sticks and palettes. My makeup looks more natural, it stays on longer, and my skin is not as oily throughout the day. Plus, there’s SPF 20 to protect skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays. Skin should be protected all year round boys and gals. That’s how you keep skin looking ageless and beautiful. The only con I have with these compacts are the dual sided sponges. They barely pick up any product and lack control. I found in this case my oval brushes and blending sponges to work far better than those spongey applicators Physicians Formula gives you. Other than that, I have no complaints.
The next time you’re headed to CVS, see if you can spot Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Cushion Corrector + Primer Duo’s. You won’t go wrong with this purchase, scouts honor.
Stay beautiful! Xo.
