Newest Purchase: Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Correcting Kit

First Impressions Post:
Physicians Formula 'Mineral Wear' Correcting Kit
In colour Medium.
I was in my local Priceline today, and with my pay fresh into my bank account and some sales on, I could not resist picking something up!
I have been really interested in picking up something from physicians formula for a while, having never used any of their products and hearing such good things about them! I was going to grab the happy booster blush, tried it on my cheeks in store but I didn't really like it :( so instead I grabbed this mineral wear kit. Lately my skin has been improving a lot with all my healthy eating, so I don't need to wear as much heavy liquid foundation! :) (yay!) so I have been looking around for a lighter mineral powder formula just to cancel out the bit of redness around my nose and even out my skin tone, so I thought this product was perfect! It combined the 4 products for only $22 with the $7 off physicians formula special which was a great deal considering the foundation and the powder were around $22 EACH! And you get the highlighter and concealer as well! Funnily enough as soon as I got out of the shopping centre into the natural daylight I saw how gorgeous the blush actually looked against my skin-tone so I was a bit bummed that I didn't pick that up too - may have to make a sneaky trip back before the sale ends :P 
What drew me so much to these products was the fact that they are:
-Correcting Kit
-Fragrance Free
-Dermatologist Approved

Since I do have quite sensitive skin which can react to some random products quite badly, I now try to choose products which are geared towards being hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and hence non-irritating to my skin. The correcting kit says it aims to:
  • Colour correct most skin imperfections. Pink brightens, Green tones down redness, yellow adds warmth
  • Hypoallergenic and non-Comedogenic formulas will not irritate the skin or clog pores.
  • Delivers high-performance wear through crease-resistant coverage.
  • Derivatives of Vitamins A & E, natural anti-oxidants help to protect and condition the skin.

    The products are designed to be used in 3 steps:
    1. Concealing/highlighting of the face: conceal any blemishes or areas of dark circles/redness. Highlight high areas of the face, e.g. cheekbones, bridge of nose, cupids bow. Medium kit comes with Light concealer and Pink Highlighter
    2: Correcting powder: this powder smooths the complexion whilst its combination of pink, green and yellow helps neutralise problems areas and give the skin a beautiful finish. Medium kit comes with the shade Natural Beige.
    3. Loose powder: this loose powder provides the coverage of a foundation combined with the blendability and natural finish of a loose powder. Medium kit comes with the shade Natural Beige.

    I really am very interested to see the coverage this kit provides, and also the 'high performance wear' and longevity of the makeup throughout the day. I have found previously that powder foundations and even some setting powders have the tendency to go patchy, crease or fade during the day which makes for train wreck makeup come 3pm :/ so I'm really hoping these ones impress me!
    Stay tuned for a foundation routine featuring these products as well as a review of the kit in the future once I have had an opportunity to really try them out! :) Thanks again for sticking with me in my time of lax posting! Working on my diet/fitness post which will be up soon!
    So tell me guys:
    Have any of you tried any of the Physicians Formula Products? Have you tried this kit together or any of the products separately? What did you think?



    1. I love the correcting powder! Can't wait to hear how well this kit lasts - might have to go get one for myself hehe

    2. I've tried the Glow Boosting BB Bronzer and this is what i can say:

      Delivers bronze, sun-kissed color in Light to Medium and Medium to Dark.
      Pressed powder texture blends on evenly.
      Frangrance-free formula provides broad spectrum sun protection.


      Compact packaging can’t keep air-sensitive antioxidants stable.
      Sparkly finish can be distracting.

      Also, I just wanted to let you know that the new Priceline catalogue is out now :) LET THE SHOPPING BEGIN! :)!

      Great review amber, hope to see you back in action soon!
