Blushing | Physicians Formula Happy Booster

I need to start a new feature about blush because 1. I think blush should be a staple in EVERY woman’s beauty routine 2. it instantly brightens up your face. It’s a brilliant product.

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.

  1. I’ve also heard a lot about this product on YouTube — looks very nice on you! I was considering picking up the new Pink Cult blush from the MAC Jeanius collection, but this may be a cheaper alternative. Pink is definitely a great color for spring. šŸ™‚

    • @Sabrina I’ve never owned a MAC blush, surprisingly out of all the products I have and the 30 blushes I own. But I’ve been pleasantly surprised that drugstore brands have really stepped up their product quality.

  2. I never wore blush until my 30th birthday, I splurged on some Nars Orgasm. My life was forever changed. I thought I had enough color, and only used a bit of bronzer in the winter. I agree with you, every woman looks better with blush!

    I may have to try this one out!

  3. I read your post yesterday about the Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush, and I went to buy it as soon as I got off work (I’m a sucker for a good blush!). I tried it out this morning, and it is so beautiful on. Thank you so much for suggesting this product. Like you, I believe that EVERY woman needs a little blush in their lives!

  4. Ok,so you know I want this blush now right? I’ve been passing it up because I really thought I didn’t need it! OK now I need/want it lol .It looks great on you!!! And what do you mean you don’t own any MAC Blushes? Did I read that right? Well let me change that real quick. I have a MAC coppertone blush with your name one it. Next time we meet up I’m handing it over, It is my ALL TIME favorite blush ever in life and you need it ASAP. šŸ™‚ It’s apricot peachy color that I wear 99.9% of the time and going to look fabulous on you.

    Yes, drugstore brands have really stepped up the quality of their products. I recently bought a blush from the MAC Wonder Woman collection (cost about $24), and I find myself reaching far more often for my Wet n’ Wild blush, which costs less than $4. If you haven’t already done a post on your favorite blushes, I’d love to know what your top picks are. Wet n’ Wild also has great eyeshadows, which rival some from the higher-end brands, IMHO.

    • @Sabrina yeah the drugstore brands have really stepped up their game. I have a palette from Wet N’ Wild that I bought when I couldn’t afford the Bobbi Brown version and I’ve almost used that palette up! NYX Cosmetics is a good drugstore brand too but I just can’t find a great selection of their products in my area!

  6. DWJ you should work for QVC because you could sale snow to a snowman,lol! I have to try this blush it looks great on you, very natural. I can’t wait to see how it looks on me.

  8. Blush addict? Raises hand. I went to MAC yesterday and couldn’t decide on anything but will in a few weeks. I usually go through this research process before buying. Am I the only one? You look stunning in the last photo. As I said in a previous post, you give out confidence and peace with living your best life. It’s nice to find a blogger who is just being herself šŸ™‚

    • @Kerissa Awww thanks so much, all your comments are just too sweet! I’m happy that my happiness in life is shining through. I’m just happy to be in a good place in the universe šŸ™‚
