Physicians Formula "Warm" Happy Booster Blush Swatch + Review

Physicians Formula "Warm" Happy Booster Blush
Don't we all need a little happiness boost in our lives? I know that I wouldn't turn one down if it was offered to me. Well, if you're like me than Physicians Formula is here with a product for you. This blush makes a lot of bold claims.According to the Physicians Formula website this blush is "infused with our Happy Boost Blend, featuring Happy Skin* and Euphoryl, natural plant extracts which have been show to promote a feeling of happiness by mimicking the effect of Endorphins and helping protect the skin from environmental stress".

Well, I know what you're all wondering. Does this blush actually make you happier when you use it? Well, here's my short answer--no. I haven't noticed a difference between days when I wear this blush and days when I wear others. I, personally, believe this whole "happy booster" stuff is nothing more than a marketing scheme. The cute hearts and the subtle violet scent make me happy but it isn't something that will last throughout the day or anything like what Physicians Formula is trying to claim.

The Happy Booster blushes come in these adorable bright pink compacts. On top there is the blush but underneath there is a small round mirror and a large, pink and red blush brush. The mirror comes in handy when I'm trying to fix my makeup on the go. It isn't very big but its very handy in a pinch. The brush, on the other hand, isn't quite so handy--no pun intended. It's way too large on my face and the pink and red bristles makes it hard for me to judge how much blush is actually on the brush. I cannot tell you have many times I've accidentally given myself clown cheeks using this brush. It is more hassle than anything else and highly recommend that you toss it as soon as you can. It is junk.

Here is the color swatched on the back of my hand. It is a warm pink, almost coral, color. I do own another Happy Booster blush in the shade "Natural" and I will admit that I prefer this one. It gives a nice, bright flush to the cheeks. In winter, it gives you that fresh I've-just-come-in-from-the-snow glow to your cheeks. It's really, really lovely. And it never seems to disappear. I've been using this color non-stop for weeks now and I can't really tell that I've used up much of the product. I'm impressed. There are two more colors in the line that I haven't tried and I think I might check them out sometime in the future.

However, this blush is a bit pricey for a drugstore. It retails for about $11.95, depending on where you make your purchase. If you do want to buy something from Physicians Formula I highly recommend that you wait until it goes on sale at CVS or Rite Aid or at your local drugstore. If you can get 40 or 30% off $11.95, it makes it more budget friendly. And drugstores are always having sales so you wouldn't have to wait too long. Have you tried any Physicians Formula products?
