Physicians Formula Touch of Glow Foundation - Review



"Weightless fluid foundation dresses skin in an illuminating veil of radiance delivering just the right amount of coverage, while remaining virtually undetectable on the skin. Nude Perfection. Luminous Glow. Hypoallergenic, Fragrance-Free, Paraben-free, Gluten Free, Dermatologist Approved, Non-Comedogenic"

I originally picked this up because I really enjoyed Youthful Wear Spotless Foundation, I thought to give this one a try. But another reason was the cute packaging. You can't deny that rose-gold frosted glass bottle with that bow on the cap is not adorable. yes it is, yes it is the most adorable foundation packaging I have ever seen!

Glass bottle packaging, comes with a pump, always appreciated when buying drugstore foundation. Comes in two shades only, light and light-medium. Light-medium looked dark enough to work for me, I usually pick up medium if it's in this sort of color format. It comes with a small brush that I can't seem to find where I have put it... and the reason for that is I don't like the brush, so I perhaps tossed it somewhere with all the other applicators that come with makeup products.. The pump applicator is very control-able and doesn't squirt the foundation in different directions. The foundation it self is pretty liquid-y. Inside the bottle, there are like metal balls by the sound of it, to shake and mix the foundation. It has a very faint smell, even though it claims to be fragrance-free, I can't put my finger on what is exactly smells like, several things come to my mind, I want to say nail polish alcohol with a floral twist to it? jeez don't quote me on that because it might smell different for others. 

The color is very orange when I first put a pump on the back of my hand, I was scared to put in on my face, but I still did, it blended very easily. The color sort of changed from orange coming from the bottle to pink when it was set on my face. It's very dewy on the skin at first, to the point of too dewy on the verge of oily/shiny looking. It can be very good for dry skin, like me. but I don't have dry skin on my t-zone, so I powdered that area. I have to be honest, it doesn't look luminous but it does look dewy, like when you first spray a setting spray, that's how my skin looked like. Once it was set, the dewiness had calmed down a bit, but not much. I think this might work really well for dry to very dry skin. Combination skins would prefer to use powder on top, and oily skins, I'm not sure would like this very much, just my personally opinion. The coverage is light to medium. It stayed on pretty good but not as good as some other. It started to get shiny on my t-zone a little and I really couldn't come to terms with how pink it was compared to my neck and the rest of my body. Even though I had applied a yellow toned powder to tone down the pink, it still showed and I didn't like that.

At the end of the night when I removed it, it felt like this sort of irritated my skin a little. I didn't get any break outs or anything from wearing this, but my skin felt irritated if you know what I mean. I felt like my hyperpigmentation looked a little darker, I had more redness and that for me is the sign of irritation. I used it a couple times more just to test it out more and still the same issue. I mixed it with a yellow based foundation to neutralize the color, it mixed very nicely and the color matched me better, but still the irritation was there. Overall, if you have dry skin and pink undertones and not a sensitive skin like me, this might work for you. But if you are like me, and have yellow/ golden undertones and are very sensitive, this might now be that great. It was a disappointment for me, but it's not not new for me to not like a drugstore foundations, so it's okay. I'll just keep it for the adorable packaging. haha

    1. Yes, for Light/medium, it's pretty dark, I wish Physicians Formula had better color range. It's a bummer. Thanks for your comment Lulle :)
