Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Cushion Foundation ♥ Beauty Review

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Cushion Foundation Review
After reviewing the L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion I went out and searched for another drugstore cushion that was also recently released, the Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Cushion Foundation. This is the second cushion I've seen in drugstores so I had to share my experience using it.

My Experience
I found this cushion at Target for about $16 but on the box it had a coupon for $5 dollars off (which I obviously used) so I got it for $11 total. I love how they played with the word "cushion" and created an actual cushion compact! It reminds me of those cushion ottomans that you sit on. A lot of reviewers I read said that they hated the packaging because it looks tacky but I think it looks super adorable! Plus, if Physicians Formula plans to make more cushion they can simply change the color of the cushion and market it again.

So, how did the cushion preform? This cushion foundation has a medium coverage that can cover up most blemishes and imperfections. It's also buildable, easy to blend and has SPF and UVA/UVB protection. The coverage really impressed me! It actually reminds me of the coverage the Lalavesi cushion provides because it has a very subtle dewy finish. It also does get as oily as the L'Oreal one does throughout the day.

The downsides of this cushion are that it only comes in three shades unlike the L'Oreal cushion which comes with 12 shades. If you have darker skin then I would recommend the L'Oreal instead of this cushion. The cushion puff is also a bit more dense then other cushion puffs I've tried. It doesn't really change the application process but I don't like how it's a harder sponge then other cushion puffs. Lastly, the bottom part doesn't come off like the L'Oreal cushion which means no refill either. I really hope they change this for all drugstore cushions in the future.

Would I repurchase?
Yes! I love this cushion!

  1. I hope I'm not the only one who thinks that this cushion is so cute. *-*
    Love the packaging so much. Can't believe others thought it was tacky. lol
    Tbh, I won't even think twice and just get this if ever I see it somewhere.
    Seems like a lot of brands are now releasing their own cushions.

    Thanks for the review! :D

    1. I watched many Youtube reviews on this cushion and a lot of them called the packaging tacky. What's wrong with them? I think it's a cute yet clever design. I'm so glad drugstore companies are finally catching on to this trend! I love cushions so much! I will review any future drugstore releases as well. Thanks for checking out my blog! <3

  4. Wow, this must be the cutest cushion I've seen in a while! People who called it "tacky" have obviously never heard of cute Korean cosmetics before & want to act all grown up or something. I mean, makeup should be fun, right? However this does look more like a limited edition packaging, haha.
    It sucks that you can't buy a refill, though. -.-
