Review: Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Correcting Primer - Pink Highlighter

What is it?
In one simple step, this versatile primer color-corrects imperfections, smoothes skin texture, fills in fine lines and boosts makeup's staying power.
Ultra-convenient twist-pen with attached brush applicator allows for easy blending and effortless application.

Retail Price: $10.95

Where to buy: Most drugstore and grocery retail stores, www.physiciansformula.com

My thoughts and experience:
The packaging of this product is very informative. It has alot of info on the back letting you know the benefits. The correcting primer has a little brush on the end; you twist the top part to get product out. From my experience, you should only twist twice. Any more and it will be too much. I used the brush to dot a couple of areas on my face. Then I used my fingers to even the primer out. I didn't use the brush to even it out because it was kind of streaky looking. It was so much smoother with fingers.

The formula is on the thicker side. Applying primer is like adding a second layer of skin before make up. Because it is thicker, it does feel a little heavier.

Some things that I like about this primer is that it contains SPF 15,  it absorbs quickly, and it does brighten the face. This primer helped smooth out some of the bumpy parts of my face to make it easier to apply make up, too.

Things I do not like about it is that I am finding that it leaves a pink undertone on my face if you wear the product alone. It also can get really messy when you are trying to get product to come out. I find that it boosted make up staying power by an extra 2-3 hours. Because the product comes out of the brush, some left overs are also dried on there.

Here's the before and after applying primer picture -

Overall, I really loved the idea of this product, but I'm not sure this is something I will purchase. I might try the nude or green color in the future to see if they work better for me.

Have you tried any of Physicians Formula's correcting primers? What do you think?
