So brilliant that I currently have about 30 different blushes in my beauty drawers. I actually have a drawer just for blush and bronzer. True story. I even convinced my Mom to go for bronzer and a brighter blush last month while we were at the beauty counter together. Blush really is wonderful and transformative to me, so I thought I should start sharing my blush picks because so many people neglect their cheeks!
Up first, Physicians Formula Happy Booster. I was intrigued because of Twitter and all the tweets from my fellow beauty addicts who were at the Physicians Formula beauty preview. I’ve also seen it in every magazine I’ve opened for spring. And then I read this on their website:
Infused with our Happy Boost Blend, featuring Happy Skin and Euphoryl, natural plant extracts which have been shown to promote a feeling of happiness by mimicking the effect of Endorphins and helping protect the skin from environmental stress.
Hmm…intriguing. Plus the violet scent, the iridescent swirls to highlight cheeks and the hearts on the blush (adorable) – I’ll buy it. I picked it up yesterday from my CVS and it had a $3 coupon on the package AND I got $7 in CVS extra care bucks just for buying $10 worth of Physicians Formula products, I practically got it for free!
And this is me with it on this morning. Slightly flushed pink, just enough color to make me happy. Not too harsh or ashy either with the pearly shimmer to it. The violet scent was subtle and not too overwhelming, so this is definitely a spring blush for me (the browner I get the brighter the color I go). If you’re looking for something new or you’re delving into blush for the first time, I’d suggest trying this one.
I’ve definitely got a few blushes stacked in my drawer for review, so definitely see more coming. And let me know if there’s a blush that you’ve heard/seen and want to know if I’ve tried it too.
