As a long-time fan of Physicians Formula blushes and highlighters, I was excited to come upon a brand new blush on my recent beauty product scouting trip at CVS. It’s Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Airbrushing Pressed Blush in Rose, and it is absolutely fabulous.
There are two choices in this blush and I’m happy with Rose, the darkest shade. The texture is silky smooth and exceedingly blendable.
Filled with plant extracts and antioxidants, this gluten-free blush boasts 16-hour wear and comes with a broad spectrum SPF 30.Now, is a SPF 30 really necessary in a blush? Not really! What the blush includes that’s really helpful is a handy hidden mirror and small brush (which I immediately toss!).
I would say that I’m somewhat of a tough cookie to impress, especially when it comes to products that claim long-lasting wear-ability. There is nothing worse than quick fades, but I have to admit that Physicians Formula beats all. The blush lasted and stayed strong until I was read to remove it – now that’s a keeper!
My Final Thoughts: This blush is the business! It’s smooth, silky, pigmented, and truly lasts through long days. I proclaim it a keeper! The only downside is the elongated name of this product which is a mouthful to both speak and type.
Price: Around $11.99. available now in drugstores and on Ulta.
