Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow and Mood Boosting Blush - Physicians Formula Pink Blush

Physicians Formula Pink - I'm guessing the happy boost comes from the cute hearts
There's always the (ever-important) question of what is one makeup item you have to wear when going out and are in rush.  For me, that one product is blush because it's fast to apply, gives glow to the face, and hides any skin imperfections or uneven tone.  Plus, rosy, flushed cheeks are a distraction from lack of eyeshadow, lack of mascara, no lipstick, you of 'those' looks.

I use the Physicians Formula Pink Happy Booster almost everyday - this blush is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and paraben free  My skin is fair with yellow/olive undertones so I usually go for really bright pinks or peach pink over darker reds or oranges.  As a disclaimer and I am not ashamed to admit it, I'm a big, big (and I mean big) fan of glitter in blush.  I absolutely love that dewy look on the cheekbones and having that sparkly look whenever I smile.  Matte blushes look very one dimensional and almost chalky, so every single one of my blushes has sparkle in it.
Compact size of product notice the sparkles on top of the dark pink hearts
Miranda's Notes:
Pros: I adore the packaging of this product specifically the cute hearts, the sturdy material, and the mirror inside.  The blush is fairly small and easy to carry and the included brush, although not the best quality, is great for on the-go and when you do not have access to your own brushes.  The reason why I wear this everyday is the long-time wear.  I wear glasses and constantly touch my face and especially with the upcoming cold weather and bundling up with scarves, my blush better last a long time.  The Physicians Formula Pink not only retains the color, but also the sparkling, and does not smudge.  I have sensitive skin and have not had any adverse reaction to this product - the packaging mentions a violet scent but I did not smell anything.  As you can see from the swatch, you can swivel the color in such a way to have it darker pink (bottom hearts) or lighter pink (top hearts).   This particular Happy Booster Glow blush also comes in a Rose color that is a little bit red/brown as opposed to the pink Happy Booster Glow blush.  Lastly, there is a lot of product in the pot and the blush can last for several months even if applied daily.

Cons: In one of my late-to-class escapades, I accidentally dropped the compact and the blush completely shattered, so you have to be careful handling it.  Considering this is a drugstore brand, the cost is also high (at around 13$USD).  The line doesn't have that many options... well it really has two possibilities in Rose or Pink, so if neither matches your skin tone, you're out of luck.  For a few extra dollars, you could get a higher end/quality blush with more nuance in the color and texture.

Grade: 3.9/5
Top part mechanism allows the compact to roll up easily
Mirror is quite handy and have used it on several occasions...who doesn't like staring at themselves 
Swatch - you can vary the intensity of the color

  1. Love these photos and your review! Very clear :)

    1. Thanks! I only learn from the best haha wink, wink

  2. I have two of these. Rose and Natural (I think those are the names). One is too light for me so I use it as a highlighter. I really like them, but I think it's mostly because the packaging is so cute. I agree that they seem to be really fragile. A friend of mine dropped my purse on the floor a little too roughly and the hearts shattered. :(

  3. I dont think I'd be able to use this because it just looks sooooo cute! I love your nails too:) xxx
