Hello there! How’s your day going? 😉
I recently purchased this foundation from Physician’s Formula off of Ulta’s website in the hunt for the perfect summer foundation.
The Physicians Formula Touch of Glow Foundation can be found at Ulta and most drugstores for $14.99. It’s a bit of a steep price tag for the drugstore, but hey, it’s not as bad as Sephora, and a good foundation is ALWAYS worth the splurge to make sure all of your makeup looks perfect.
It comes with a pump (HALLELUJAH), and oh my goodness, could the packaging be any cuter? It has rose gold tones with a little bow on the cap, and it’s also very sturdy.
I’d say this foundation has buildable, medium coverage with a luminous to dewy finish. My oily friends, don’t be scared! As long as you set it with a light dusting of powder, it doesn’t look like an oil slick at all.
The thing that I absolutely adore about this foundation is that it pretty much looks like skin. It makes me glowing, not oily, and gooooorgeous, and that’s the goal of makeup, right? 😉 It pretty effectively covers up my pores and most redness that I may have as long as I build it up. As far as deeper redness/blemishes, I do have to go in with a concealer, but that is pretty typical as far as foundations are concerned.
As with a lot of foundations, it doesn’t last all day, but that’s not what it’s marketed for. If anyone has any miracle tips on how to make your foundation last all day, leave a comment down below because I’d love to know!
The one gripe I have with this product is that the shade range is a bit lackluster. From the Physicians Formula website, there’s only two shades (Light and Light/Medium), and the Light only works with my skin tone in the summer. In my opinion, it’s honestly too dark to be able to be labeled ‘light’, but in my case it works out. I would only be using this foundation in the summer anyway for a glowing, summery finish!
All in all, you should most DEFINITELY give this foundation a try! A little bit of a splurge, but you can always return it if you don’t like it/the shade isn’t right for you, and like I said previously, if you splurge on anything, you splurge on foundation.
Onto the concealer!
I’m absolutely in love with this. This is the Physicians Formula Nude Wear Touch of Glow Stick, and it retails for $12.99 at Ulta and various drugstores. Again, pretty expensive for a concealer, but if you’re willing to spend the money, it’s absolutely worth it.
It only comes in the one shade, Nude Glow, which is one of my complaints of this product. However, at least on my skin (which is pretty pale on the spectrum), it blends out so that it doesn’t look too dark. For the palest of the pale and medium-deep skin tones, you may want to steer clear of this. I definitely wish they would come out with more shades!
Again with the packaging. It’s like the daughter of the foundation with the same rose gold/bow lid and pick casing. It’s SO girly and I feel super fancy whenever I use it!
This concealer is in a solid stick format, and it’s a pretty fat stick, so it’s not as precise as an applicator would be for applying to the more difficult areas of the face. The coverage, like the foundation, is a buildable medium with a glowing finish, but it doesn’t accentuate your blemishes, surprisingly! It’s definitely not the BEST concealer for covering up blemishes (ahem, MAC Pro Longwear 😉 ), but for light skin discolorations, this concealer covers them up and makes your skin look glowing! It’s also great for covering up slight under-eye circles, providing you set them with a powder immediately afterwards because it WILL crease if you don’t.
I DEFINITELY recommend this line of base products for anyone with dry to combination-oily skin for a great, everyday, glowing foundation and concealer. It’s been one of my favorites this summer, and it was definitely worth the hefty price tag! What are your favorite foundations to wear in the summertime? Do you have any recommendations for future posts? Leave a comment down below and tell me ALL about it! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! Keep strong, be kind, and stay beautiful. 🙂
See you soon!
