Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra Nourishing Argan Oil Blush
Today I am reviewing the Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra Nourishing Argan Oil Blush. Argan Oil has been the new kid on the block for some time now and it has kind of become overrated. Be it Haircare, Skincare and Cosmetics, anything and everything is being infused with Argan Oil. Let’s get down to business and see if this blush with its pure argan oil formulation does what it claims.
Ultra-luxe formula features luminous, light reflecting pigments that deliver a skin perfecting effect for a youthful and glowing radiance. Infused with 100% Pure Argan Oil, known as liquid gold for its rich conditioning benefits that can improve skin’s brightness, tone, texture elasticity.

What I think
The Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra Nourishing Argan Oil Blush comes in a round double compartment casing with a see through flip open lid. The top slot houses the blush with a mirror underneath and the bottom slot contains a small fan brush. The brush is totally redundant as the bristles are relatively coarse and the shape doesn’t work to be used as a blush brush. The blush has a three fold color spectrum with a beautiful surface pattern with gold shimmer overspray on the design.The design is inscribed deep enough that even after multiple uses, it is quite noticeable. Packaging wise, I like the overall look but would have preferred a single compartment with a mirror on top making it much more compact.
The blush is silky soft with a satiny luminous finish. I absolutely love the texture of this blush. Initially when you swirl a brush over, it is going to pick up all the gold overspray which is not at all subtle . The shimmer is gritty and your-face-is-a-disco-ball kind so definitely tap it off. When I initially tested out the blush, my brush picked up all the shimmer by accident. Hence the reason you don’t see it in the pictures. The blush by itself has shimmer of the non-gritty variety which are sparsely distributed. It adds an overall glowy look to the cheeks.
The shade Rose is a beautiful natural pink shade that would look absolutely pretty on fair to medium skin tones. It has excellent pigmentation and blends really well. It gives a healthy and lovely flush to the face. Shade selection is limited as it comes in 2 shades and not very pliable across skin tones. Blushes are one of my favorite makeup products especially matte ones but I do have exceptions to pretty glow inducing kind like this one. I mean it’s like a highlighter and a blush rolled into one, what’s not to like! This beauty lasts without any visible signs of fading for 7-8 hours straight. It gradually fades there on but still not very perceptible and you can get away with it. As for their claims of infusing argan oil – liquid gold for its rich conditioning benefits like improving skin’s brightness, tone, texture and elasticity, I beg to differ. I have been using this blush since a few months and I am yet to see any of these benefits. Honestly, it’s a blush – layered over a foundation and/or powder which are layered over several steps of skincare. So there is no point in looking at skin benefits like brightening, toning and elasticity.
Overall, Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra Nourishing Argan Oil Blush is a lovely product with great pigmentation and texture that blends beautifully giving a natural, healthy looking color to the cheeks.
