PHYSICIANS FORMULA REVIEW

If you travel to USA regularly then you must've heard of Duane Reade, apart from Sephora, this is the only other shop that I visit daily and spend hours in when I am in The States.  They have at least 2 aisles filled with make-up displays with many brands that are not available in the UK.  The prices are amazing and the store is open 24hrs. I get a real kick out of shopping after midnight.  During my trip to NYC in December there was a Duane Reade located a 2 minute walk from the hotel, in fact there is one located every couple of blocks in Manhattan.  Now I first came across Physicians Formula a couple of years ago whilst working as an Air Hostess, I discovered the range in a Walmart in Dallas.  My first product was a bronzer, I loved it so much I have purchased it several times since.

So this time I purchased a special promotion pack of their mineral products.  This included a Mineral Correcting Powder and Mineral Correcting Concealers.  These products are so gentle on the skin that they are recommended by Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons after cosmetic surgey.  My 13 year old daughter is just getting into make-up, she has super sensitive skin and these products are perfect for her to experiment with, they are Talc Free and Hypoallergenic.





So first of all the powder.  It is marbled Green, Pink and Yellow to even out your skin tone, Green tones down any redness, Yellow adds warmth and Pink brightens.  This powder is a hi-tech Japanese formula and is of the highest quality, there is a brush and a mirror in the bottom of the compact.  The powder is super fine and doesn't cake or settle in any lines, it also does not look ashy on the skin.

The concealer is in 3 small bottles that all lock together.  No1 Correct -  is a soft Yellow that corrects dark circles and any other blueish imperfections.  No2 Cover -  conceals imperfections.  No3 Highlight -  is a Pink highlighter that highlights brow bones, cheek bones and temple.

I haven't purchased a product I didn't like yet from this range.  I paid $18 for the above products. If you are planning on visiting the USA or Canada soon then it is a brand I recommend you try.

I would really love to try their Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Make-up, especially the Blusher and the Bronzer
