Physicians Formula Organic Wear:Sculpted Trio,Mascara,Liquid Foundation,& Eye Liner



I've just realized that I did focus on skincare more than on my make up last year so that I rarely post about my make up products. Oh,I did post about my hunts for good clean liquid foundation(and it's still..)and some lippies posts,but that's all. Umm..let me tell you that my style of make up is no make up make up look,so mostly what I wear daily will be:eyebrow pencil,liquid foundation or face powder(one of them,don't wear both daily),concealer,and lipcolor. That's it!I have blush ons,eyeshadows,but rarely wear it daily.One thing that I won't wear it daily,that is eyeliner.I hate eyeliner!My eyes are sensitive,so mostly after wearing eyeliner I'll get itchy so that I'll need to scratch it. So I'm always amazed to see how some girls adoring eyeliner since I hate it to the most.

Anywho,these are some of my make up collection from Physicians Formula Organic Wear.If you want to go for an organic drugstore brand,this brand certainly can't be missed!I'll review all of them in 1 post since I have many things to be posted and I just don't wanna take time to review each of these one by one. Here we go:

1.Physicians Formula Organic Wear Liquid Foundation in Natural Beige Organics
If you're familiar to this blog,you know that I've been looking for a good clean liquid foundation. I really like liquid foundation rather than powdery foundation.Because the result tends to be glowy, not cakey nor matte unlike powdery foundation.Since I've failed twice with my previous liquid foundie before,so this time I try this brand.Actually I wanted the tinted moisturizer one,it's more famous on PF organic wear line rather than the liquid foundation one.However it contains hemp seed oil that I'd rather not to take a risk to get the product here.You know,weeds are illegal here.I've ever posted about it here


inci:
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: TITANIUM DIOXIDE, 
INACTIVE INGREDIENTS: CITRUS AURANTIUM DULCIS (ORANGE) FRUIT WATER*, GLYCERIN, OLEYL ALCOHOL, HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL*, WATER, GLYCERYL STEARATE SE, TITANIUM DIOXIDE, IRON OXIDE, LECITHIN (SOY), CYATHEA CUMINGII LEAF EXTRACT, GLYCINE SOYA (SOYBEAN) OIL*,OLEA EUROPAEA (OLIVE) FRUIT OIL*, XANTHAN GUM, GLYCERYL CAPRYLATE, LEUCONOSTOC / RADISH ROOT FERMENT FILTRATE, COLLOIDAL SILVER, LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA (LAVENDER) OIL*. * PRODUCED FROM ORGANIC FARMING

Swatch:


I've heard that PFOW liquid foundation had"weird colour"on some reviews.Those who are caucasian,asian,the reviews said it's"weird",even some of those ladies had tried to buy another color of this collection!Still,I needed to try it.Turned out what those gurls said was right!What I chose was this natural beige organics color one.When it's applied on my skin,the color isn't either beige,nor yellow,nor white,nor even tan.I hardly describe what the color it is!Coverage is medium,buildable to heavy. What I dislike the most is that this feels waxy and sticky on my face though it's in liquid form.This product will give you glowing looks.
Overall,I don't like this product:indescribable color,waxy feeling.Things that I don't expect from a liquid foundation.However,since this is organic so I must appreciate it that way.I'll give this product 3 points out of 5.Please note that all of my liquid foundation review is based on the liquid foundation application alone(without giving powder on top of it).

2.Physicians Formula Organic Wear sculpted trio in Sun Kissed Organics
I always state that I'm a big fan of pressed powder instead of loose powder one.Because I have nose allergy,and that's why I also prefer to use liquid foundation one instead of powdery foundation one! So,of course I couldn't miss to try this pressed powder from PFOW.Actually PFOW has 2 pressed powders type:
pressed powder

sculpted trio

I chose sculpted trio one since the concept was unique(highlighter,facepowder,and bronzer in one).What I chose was Sun Kissed Organics color one.



The product had mini angle blush brush.Since the bristle is made of natural bristle(sheep I guess?),so I don't use this brush but just a make up sponge instead.The casing of this product is unique,it's made of paper.Divided into 2 compartments,the bottom one contains mirror and compartment for brush/sponge.The upper one is the product.




Swatch:
up:higlighter,middle:powder,bottom:bronzer

This one has light citrusy scent.As you can see,there's a slight shimmer for the highlighter.However,this product falls to sheer coverage imo.I've tried to blend them all,it's still sheer.I used to use mineral make up,so this one deffy has less coverage than mineral make up one.
inci:
Talc, Mica, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) (Jojoba Seed Oil*), Magnesium Stearate, Silica, Zinc Stearate, Zea Mays (Corn Starch*), Calcium Carbonate, Kaolin, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil (Olive Fruit Oil*), Glycerin, Glycine Soja (Soybean Oil*), Glyceryl Caprylate, Cinnamic Acid, Sodium Levulinate, Tocopherol, Water, May Contain (+/-): Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide

No wonder it has sheer coverage since the presence of minerals there is just to color the cornstarch and talc.After this one,I actually wanted to order Alicia Silverstone for Juice Beauty face powder:


However since the reviews here and there said that it has sheer,even poor coverage,I cancelled to buy it.I think the similarity between those products are this:they use organic powder as base,and then using minerals as colorants.And that's why both of them don't have good coverage.When it comes to coloring,we can't deny that the chart of the most pigmented one will be like this:
1.Synthetic colorants
2.Mineral colorants
3.Plant based colorants

I know that recently people are crazy about going organic and all those things as they concern about safety.I read that people now are starting to color their face with things organic like chocolate powder,turmeric powder,etc.There's nothing wrong with it,but if you're talking about make up,you're talking about this also:a matched to skintone color,staying power,and..coverage.And I'm not sure if those organic powders will have those things that a good make up should has compared to mineral colorants one,for example! It's really different between just a"coloring your face"product and a"good make up"product.They're totally different topic! Now you understand what I mean,and that's why I give this product 3 points out of 5 also.I actually wanted to give this product 2 points for overall performance,but I added 1 point since after all it has the effort to be..organic.

3.Physicians Formula Organic Wear Mascara in Ultra Black Organics
I think this is the most popular mascara in clean beauty category.Like,everyone on the alley has tried this!This was my 1st clean mascara.I like the idea of this mascara tube,very attractive!:) The result of this mascara was:not clumping,not brittle either.However as this wasn't waterproof at all,nor sweat proof so whenever I wore this,and my face got sweat,then my under eyes will start to get small patches of this mascara as I blink my eyes that turned to smudge on the area.So yes,you'll get panda eyes after that.


inci:
CITRUS AURANTIUM DULCIS (ORANGE) FRUIT WATER*, GLYCERIN, IRON OXIDE, MICROCRYSTALLINE CELLULOSE, GLYCERYL STEARATE, WATER, BEESWAX*, JOJOBA ESTERS, TAPIOCA STARCH*, COPERNICIA CERIFERA (CARNAUBA) WAX*, STEARIC ACID, GLYCERYL CAPRYLATE, ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE*, CELLULOSE GUM, CUCUMIS SATIVUS (CUCUMBER) FRUIT EXTRACT*, GLYCINE SOYA (SOYBEAN) OIL*, HYDROLYZED ORYZA SATIVA (RICE) PROTEIN, LEUCONOSTOC/RADISH ROOT FERMENT FILTRATE, MAGNESIUM ALUMINUM SILICATE, OLEA EUROPAEA (OLIVE) LEAF EXTRACT*. MAY CONTAIN: TITANIUM DIOXIDE *PRODUCED FROM ORGANIC FARMING.

Actually,this is a very common thing in natural mascara as they're usually non waterproof formula.Oh,err..I think there isn't any natural waterproof mascara on the market,yet.Perhaps because there aren't any good biopolymers that has good result as good as synthetic polymers(which is silicone)one on the market.The synthetic polymers really does the job to coat the lashes well against water and sweat.Anyway,I forgot to take a swatch of this mascara,but you can see on Hayley's blog here.


Good thing about this mascara is that this one will actually lengthen your eyelashes after couple of applications:

I think it did!I liked this mascara alot despite the fact that it's not waterproof(but there's no waterproof natural mascara anyway,yet)so I'd give this mascara 4.5 points.

4.Physicians Formula Organic Wear Eyeliner in Black Olive Organics



As I previously said,I hate wearing eyeliner.Be it liquid,pencil,gel,since my eyes are sensitive.However,I still have to have one for that special ocassion like party.So I prefer to buy the pencil one.Why?it last longer than the liquid,or gel one since it has no water in it.This PFOW eyeliner is quite smooth,and sure..smudge.
Swatch:


Why?because of the same reason as the mascara has!Good things is,my eyes don't get itchy when I wear this so I think I'll get this eyeliner 4 points.

I think there're loopholes in natural & green cosmetic industry,especially on the make up area.Most of the products aren't waterproof(for mascara & eyeliner),sheer coverage(for liquid foundation & concealer),& less pigmented. So when it comes to make up,really..it's not just"coloring our face with something"...It has to be able to cover imperfection as well,and plus other abilities there.

Guess that's all for now.Thank you for reading!:) Have a lovely day!:) And plizzz....don't forget to share some of joy that you have today to those in needs below:

    1. Thanks :)

      Ah,kalo utk make up sih aku lebih megang full mineral make up ya utk hasil yg lebih bagus drpd campuran mineral+organic.Hasilnya lbh coverage sih menurutku.Kalo utk mineral make up,ada kok di Indonesia.Namanya Ciel Minerals,coba aja.Ada webnya:)
      Aku juga kaya banyak cewe2 Indo lainnya,males make up an.Pake blush on juga kalo lagi centil =D Kalo mascara,kadang lbh srg aku pake drpd blush on.Cuman mascara umurnya pendek banget,beli mahal2 juga sayang krn cuman 3 bulan :(

      Ni beli di drugstore.com,coba aja kesana.Lengkap kok koleksinya.Harganya ga semahal 100% pure.Itu yg bedak aslinya ada shimmernya yg highlightnya,tapi ga ke capture kamera dgn baik.Susah euy moto swatch warna :(

    3. aku tau merk lily lolo buat mineral.. tertarik buat coba.. tapi belom2 nih..
      masi maju mundur aja.. hehehe :)
      udah sbulanan ini muka ku lagi parah merah2 :( jadi ga pake bedak jg.. cuman pake pelembab sama sunblock..

      ah.. aku malah kebalikan mu..
      aku lebi suka blush on daripada mascara..
      bulu mata ku pendek2.. di mascara-in.. agak ga efek.. *sedih*

      ooh ok ok~! 100% Pure emang agak mahal yah.. :(
      thank you buat info nyaaa :D

      Delete
    4. Oh,lily lolo.Tau sih,tp blm pnah nyoba merk itu.Btw,muka parah kenapa?

      Lho,kalo bulu mata pendek bukannya malah bagusnya di mascara in say?;) Kalo aku si lebih seneng mascara drpd blush on,krn lebih keliatan aja kalo pake mascara.Ya bagusnya sih dua2nya,tapi males aja make semuanya,hahaa :D

      100% pure lebih mahal drpd ini sih,maupun mineral make up.Kalo buat harga bersahabat,hasil bagus,mineral make up bagus kok^^
      Sama2^^

      Delete
    6. Iritasi?apa salah make produk?:/

      Oh,iya sih aku pnah denger ada yg susah pake mascara.Padahal seharusnya mascara kan bisa bikin"lebih panjang"yah.Kalo bulumata palsu,pasti berhasil deh;) Tapi aku sdr blm pnah nyoba pake,kynya ribet gitu yaa :/

  2. I'm a big fan of the Honeybee Gardens pressed powder, which has good, buildable coverage. I wear it on it's own a lot of the time, but it also works for lighter coverage or as a setting powder for liquid foundation

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh right,you often mentioned it!:D I read good reviews about it also.I think Honeybee Gardens will have better coverage since it's a full mineral product,not a combo between mineral+organic.Would love to try it after I finish my current powder!:)
      Thanks for reminding me,Caitie!:)

  3. Maskaranya lucu banget ada daunnya! X) Semua kemasannya bagus, Lynn. Tapi si compact powder ada Talc dan kuasnya bulu binatag. :( *ngiler, tapi...*

    Ngomong-ngomong maskaranya harganya berapa, Lynn? :D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Iya,kemasannya mang lucu ada daunnya:D Aku ngga anti talc sih,krn ada talc yg tidak mengandung asbes.Selain itu,talc yg ada asbesnya ga bagusnya kalo di hirup sama di taruh di bagian privat(kaya bedakin bayi di pantat cs itu loh).Jadi kalo talc di bedak padat,atau lotion/cream,aku sih ga masalah.

      Di drugstore.com harga skrg 9.99 USD.Kalo sama shipping jadi sekitar 135-160rb mungkin?Mesti diitung dulu krn aku belinya biasanya sama barang lain,hehehe...

      Delete
    2. Oh, talc gitu, ya? Hahaha. Tapi aku udah cocok banget sama si powder foundienya 100% Pure. Entar harus beli lagi! :3

      Hm, coba entar kalo maskaraku yang sekarang abis, aku meditasi ya, siapa tau ngiler banget-banget nyoba yang ini. Hahaha. :D

      Delete
    3. Oh,aku mo nyobain powder foundienya juga.Dia kok mahal gitu ya :/ Ntar deh abis ini semedi juga :D

      Si lip & cheek tintku skrg warnanya udah..lenyap separuhnya!Iya loh!Makanya itu aku bilang,pewarna tumbuhan sama mineral kalo dari segi kelayakan make up dan hasilnya,jauh lebih bagus mineral.Lebih bagus lagi yg sintetis,pigmented dan coveragenya bahkan ga bisa dikalahin mineral..

      Mascara ini terkenal banget kok di sana.Bagusnya lagi,dia bisa manjangin bulu mata juga loh!(tumbuh beneran,bukan cuman efek)stlh dipake sering2 :D

  4. I agree, I wish there were more waterproof formula's
    for natural makeup. For Liquid foundation, I've only
    tried the 100% Pure Full Coverage foundation. I find
    that it works well for the summer time, since it has
    a lot of oil absorbing ingredients.

    I want to try the Pur Mineral 4 in 1 tinted mineral moisturizer
    and they just released a 4 in 1 foundation! need to check the
    ingredients though ><

    1. I've tried 100% pure tinted moisturizer,it has poor coverage:/ It's hard to find good liquid foundation though :/ Btw,I hope that you'll review that 100% pure full coverage foundation :) Would love to read it :)

      Oh,sounds like a good product!I'll google it after this,hehehe.. :D Thanks for letting me know ;)

    1. Halo juga :) .Beli drugstorenya.Itu yg ada exp.datenya cuman yg foundationnya sih,aku liat di kemasannya.Yg lainnya ngga ada.Kosmetik2 amrik kan emang suka ngga kasih exp.date,ngaco sih emang.Uda pernah aku bahas soal ini sih dulu.Cuman yah..krn byk bgt yg model ginian jd susah juga klo mau nuntut exp.date :/

      Trims uda mampir ^^

    2. Hai,makasihh balasannya:)...langsung ke drugstore atau po dr OL say?kebetulan aku juga suka productnya si physician ini hehehe...iya tu serem jg ga ada exp datenya,wahh trus gimana ya?dikira2 sendiri gt kali ya

      Delete
    3. Setahunn masih aman kali yaa hehehehe...makasihhhh:))

      Delete
    4. Aku ambil dr drugstorenya.OL biasanya ada juga yg buka buat drugstore,cuman suka kelamaan tunggu..ya jadi mana yg dululah.Wah,ga tau gimana kira2 kapan mereka produksinya.Tapi kalo di web2 gede barang2nya biasanya masih baru2 sih.Misal e-bay,pnah tu dulu order apa gitu,aku tanya kapan exp.datenya,mrk jawab jujur kok.Misal ga dicantumin dsitu,mereka bakalan kasih tau kapan tu barang mrk ambil dr produsennya dan semacemnya gitu.Mang kosmetik amrik ngeselin urusan exp.date ini,misal ragu nanya dulu aja ke yg jual.

      Kalo buat exp.date,tergantung jenis barangnya.Sama bahan2nya.Kalo bubuk itu asalkan non organik,alias kaya mineral make up gtu yg pure mineral,ya tahan lama dia.Kalo yg uda dicampur bahan2 organik,lbh ga lama(si bahan2 non organik ini).Kalo yg ga ada airnya,itu juga lama.Asalkan ga tengik,masih bisa dipake.Inipun tergantung cara kita simpennya.Jadi setahun,bisa lebih dr itu.Ada yg 2-3 tahun.Tergantung isinya apa.Ga bisa dipukul rata sih soalnya krn isinya lain2.

      Sama-samaaaaa :D

    1. Hi Christin! Salam kenal juga :)
      Iya sih makeup yg ramah kesehatan emang mahal. Kalo kamu mau mekap yg ga mahal,bisa beli mineral mekap. Maksud aku yg asli mineral dan ga pake bahan2 lain selain mineral di dalamnya. Bisa baca postinganku soal lead di lipstik. Krn nama mineral ni srg disalahpakaikan sama produsen kosmetik,pdhl aslinya produk mrk ga pure mineral.

      Tetep semangat ya make kosmetik yg ramah kesehatan! :)
