I wanted to share with you a newly discovered product that has quickly become my go-to in my summer daily foundation routine. I was looking for a light powder foundation for the hot summer days, and well, a blush and bronzer were a bonus I wasn’t going to reject.
The Physicians Formula Mineral Airbrushing Powder Kit has been around for a little while but I have recently found mine at Walmart for $15. Knowing that Physicians Formula tends to retail for higher prices (ahem, over $10 each), I grabbed this quickly as I thought it was a great value.
The one I got was the Mineral Wear Light Complexion Kit which includes a face powder in Creamy Natural, a bronzer in Light Bronze and a blush in Natural.
The powders are advertised as having SPF 30 (which is perfect for summer), talc free, hypoallergenic, fragrance free and non-comedogenic, which is great for acne prone skin. All the powders are finely milled and all have a beautiful sheen, which I think gives off a very youthful glow and airbrushed finish.
That aspect of this airbrushing kit, along with the great pigmentation and effortless blendability, is something I’ve really enjoyed – my skin looks perfectly highlighted all the time. Check it out.
Handy Tip: I recommend applying the face powder with a big fluffy brush, and at most apply two layers, with a second layer on top of any areas that you would like any additional coverage.
Coverage wise, the Physicians Formula powder is light to medium coverage. I’ve tried this face powder without any face primer and noticed that it emphasized my pores, so I tried it with a pore erasing primer (been loving the Maybelline Baby Skin primer) and it looked beautiful and lasted me all day.
All the powders last very long on my skin (at least 8 hrs and more) and they keep their pigmentation. The Light Bronzer fit my skin tone perfectly, and the Natural blush is a pink rose color that looks natural but definitely adds a fresh pop of color to your complexion.
I would strongly recommend you grab one and try out these beautiful powders, I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the healthy glow they’ll give your skin.
The colors are beautifully curated and my foundation routine is simple now and feels lighter than wearing liquid foundation – I apply the primer, some under eye concealer, swirl the powders on and I’m done. On the flip side, if you’re looking for a matte finish and are looking for a fuller coverage foundation, I would pass on this kit.
Let us know if you’ve tried this yourself and how you like it, and what’s the way you apply it. Do you have any other recommendations for the perfect powder foundation for summer?
