Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Cushion Corrector + Primer Duo SPF 20 Review

Two big trends in the beauty world I'm sure you've noticed: color correcting and cushion compacts. Physicians Formula decided to marry the two and create the Mineral Wear Talc-Free Cushion Corrector + Primer Duo SPF 20. I was sent these--y'all know I give honest reviews--I wouldn't be here still blogging after 7 years if I didn't! After a lot of testing, and after sharing these on my Instagram, many of you wanted a review!

$16.95, drugstores, ULTA, box stores
  • weightless mineral formula 
  • delivers the skin-transforming benefits of color-correction 
  • skin-perfecting effect of priming 
  • SPF 20

2 shades--see more on that in the pics below

Paraben free
Gluten free
Dermatologist tested
Fragrance free
Cruelty free
Clinically tested

Let's look at each compact:

Peach brightens darkness
Lavender brightens dullness

Yellow corrects dark circles and dullness
Green corrects redness

To apply, you can use the sponge applicator. I used a brush to apply this. I used the yellow and peach for dark circles, the lavender for dullness (if you read yesterday's post, you'll know I was really sick, so I loved this), and green for the slight redness around my nose.

I know this is messy, but this is real life, y'all. I'm not gonna make it all perfect when that's not how I'd apply it, you know? Use this before applying your makeup. I did try it after makeup and then another layer on top. It is very light and doesn't feel heavy. 

Why you should try:
This essential first step creates a flawless complexion, instantly color-corrects skin tone, blurs fine lines and pores, and conceals visible imperfections. Uniquely buildable formula allows for spot correction or all over perfecting. Airbrushing + Blurring + Correcting!

Cheaper version: Wet N Wild
Expensive Version: Lancome

Overall, I liked these, but I don't think it's a necessary product for me. I don't color correct every day, but more like for special occasions or for blog pictures. Oily skin and sensitive skin would really like them too. By the way--can you tell I've lost weight? Would you like another post on my weight loss update?

Do you use color correctors?

Today begins the Sephora VIB sale--are you getting anything?Here are my picks.


  1. I've never tried physicians formula products. I think I might have to try this one - my skin is so dull after the long winter!

  2. I really need to try this one! Would be perfect with some redness that I have.


  3. I don't use color correctors but really thinking of doing so. Thanks for this review!


  4. I don't colour correct at all, personally I find it to be another additional unnecessary step. That said, I am intrigued about these new releases from PF.

  5. I color correct my dark circles every single day! haha. I use the yellow corrector from Lancome and mix it with the corrector from IT cosmetics. It makes a huge difference, so much that I have to use it everyday.

  6. I've only tried a mascara from Physicians Formula but I was very happy with it! These cushion color correction things sound cool though, and I've used a green concealer in the past so it's definitely something that I might have to try out!

  7. I need to try these. Always been afraid that I'd look like a clown.

    PS - I couldnt find the Rimmel powder you recommended... BUT I did end up buying some Matte powder to try... OH MY WORD - it made my skin look so blotchy & made my dark spots look even darker. I was so embarassed at work yesterday seeing my face in the light here. I literally took a box of kleenex & scrubbed my face till it was all off. Rimmel may not be my product. Yikes. Maybe it was just that matte stuff. I still am on the hunt for a finishing powder though!

  8. I color correct every day. It's the only powder I use, on account of blotchiness and tzone oiliness. I like the Besame loose powders in Violet and Vanilla and the NYX green one. Color correctors are a godsend, lol. My wacky skin actually draws compliments now.

  9. It's good to know that these are so lightweight. I'm always afraid of adding more products because they might feel heavy on my face. I need to see if the drugstore downstairs carries these :)

  10. I've never tried color correcting! I've always wanted to try a green one because my skin gets very red! I love the packaging. And you look great, Elle! Yes to another weight loss update!

  11. I don't know if I'll be trying these out either, I feel like I don't necessarily need color correction on a daily basis. The Sephora sale I can totally get behind though, and I already have my bag ready to go!

  12. You look absolutely amazing in these pics. The products look beautiful on you! I am definitely checking these out because I am all about the color correct right now.

  13. I used to use the green PF color corrector back in high school on my blemishes and they yellow under my eyes. I do a little color correcting under my eyes now a days but thats it. Thanks for sharing these products!

  14. These have such pretty packaging! I love that is has an SPF, too! I have not tried these! I did get a notice in the mail about the Sephora sale, I will probably get a few things! :)


  15. I don't use color correctors- not even sure if I should...? Concealer and foundation seem to do the trick for me.

    You look lovely in the final photo, lady!

  16. i've never used this product before but i probably should! it looks great on you. xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  17. I've never used color correctors before, well I guess I have used more yellow concealers on my dark eye circles but that was law school problems. I have noticed your weight loss and can totally tell in your pics. Tell us more! Yay VIB sale!

  18. i always enjoy your honest reviews Elle and that fact that you don’t try to make everything look perfect, because like you said… real life is mess. nobody lives in a beautifully staged blog post

  19. wow I had never even heard of color correctors.. these are so cool

  20. I used to use a Clinique color corrector, but haven't in a long time. I need to again cause these dark circles aren't going away! These are really cute and I love your pictures.

  21. This looks awesome! Totally want the peach/lavendar one to brighten! Oh I wanted to tell you about my friend's beauty company called Glory Boon! Her products are all natural and so amazing! I just got her mermaid hightlighter!!!! :) You should check it out: https://gloryboon.com/

  22. Omg your skin looks flawless! I definitely need to try this! Love that its color correcting!

  23. I haven't been happy with the color correcting products I've tried, but these look intriguing!

  24. Interesting! I honestly haven't seen lavender color corrector before. I love that there are so many options because you never need just one! I'd love to see a weight loss update!

  25. I really want to try the green corrector for my rosacea.The redness can be really hard to cover up and it's embarrassing.Definitely going to try this!

  26. I only use a yellow colour corrector, however this looks amazing and I love how your makeup looks.

  27. Wooow, the product seems to be super complete and useful :D
    Nice review and tutorial :D Keep it up :D

  28. I dont usually color correct either, but it is nice to know these are out there. My Target stopped selling this brand over the last month or two. Isn't that crazy? Happy Birthday to Charlie!

  29. Good to know that while these work there are better options available! I personally really love the NYX palette and it does it for me. :)

  30. I'm still not a fan of color correcting. I feel like it's too much on my face whereas good foundation a bit of concealer where I need it, and some powder work the best. I reallllly want to see a review of the new Butter Blushers though. (; I've had them in my hand twice now and the store and put them back both times. I love my butter bronzer and use it every single day, so I was curious of the blush could live up to the hype. (:

  31. I hope Charlie had a great birthday! I can definitely tell you've lost weight, your face is thinner. I was definitely interested in learning more about these. I've been using the green Wet n Wild one and I like it. I don't color correct every day either so I don't know that it's worth the splurge for me, but I'm glad to know they work.

  32. I haven't really tried colour correcting before but like you I think I would only really do it for special occasions. I don't think I have time before work in a morning to add this to my makeup routine but I can see why you would want to as it helps give you a flawless look :) x
