I’ve been putting off posting about the Physicians Formula products in the hope that they may have launched in the UK by now. I kind of thought they might do something before Christmas but alas we appear to be no closer and I have no more news so I thought I would just go ahead and review the bits and pieces I have.. this is one of my favourites.
When I first opened it up I thought it was basically a golden powder, total nightmare scenario for a glitter-phobe like myself and I assumed I would hate it but crisis averted.. it was just a pretty overspray. The same thing happened with their Happy Booster Blush, if you have been following me for a while you may remember my review where I was ranting how disco ball it made my face and then I realised it was just the top layer. Okay PF it makes the product look nice but it’s totally impractical and had I seen this in store I would NEVER have picked it up because it looked so glittery.. you could be losing customers!
Once you get past that gold the powder is a sheer bronze that has a beautiful sheen so serves the purpose of both bronzer and highlight. I would say that if you’re super pale this could er on the orange side.. I applied it heavily for the below picture so that the colour would pick up on camera. You can definitely get a more subtle effect but I would rather use this as a highlight on top of another bronzer because it’s not the perfect tone for my skin but I can see ho on warmer or darker complexions this could serve double duty.
Have you tried this? It’s really gorgeous and if I already had some colour, maybe in the summer or after a holiday I would reach for this but it doesn’t work so well trying to warm up my pale skin from nothing.
