Physician’s Formula Youth Wear Cosmeceutical Youth Boosting Line

Physician’s Formula just released their new Youth Wear cosmeceutical youth boosting foundation, concealer and powder.

The foundation is good. It leaves a velvety look on your face, although I didn’t see any “youth boosting” or “wrinkle concealing”.  It does sit pretty on the face though, making it a good basic foundation with medium coverage.  The problem is that it only comes in three shades:(  The concealer made me look older so I’m  not a fan!  The powder comes in matte or illuminating.   I got the illuminating powder and it did add a pretty finish to my face.

TARTE AMAZONIAN CLAY FOUNDATION & MARACUJA BLUSH AND GLOW

I picked up two of Tarte’s new releases from their Spring 2012 launch.

I found the Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Full Coverage Foundation to be buildable with a light weight feeling, providing medium to full coverage depending upon how much you layer. Its very blendable and looks lovely on the face. I do recommend the foundation. It is long lasting and did not oxidize on my skin. It has an SPF 15 and is marketed as a “smart foundation”, adjusting to your skin type due to the Amazonian Clay. It retails for $38 for 1.7 oz of product. You can purchase it wherever Tarte products are sold.

I was not a huge fan of the Maracuja Blush and Glow. I wanted to love it, I really did, but the ratio of blush to luminizer was ridiculous. I got the shade “Candlelight” and the luminizer just did not highlight for my fair NC 20 skin. It did give a pretty glow to the foundation when mixed in with it. The blush is really beautiful. I wish they would sell it in stick form like Nars does with their Multiples. That would be awesome and I would buy them all! Although I love most of Tarte’s products and even love the blush part of the “Blush and Glow”, I cannot recommend this product due to the poor performance of the luminizer. It retails for $32 for 1oz of product. It is a Sephora exclusive. I just don’t love the luminizer as a highlight and at this price point, I think you would do better with Nars.
