Seriously, what is it with Physicans Formula and the names?!?!
I mentioned that a couple of weeks ago, I picked up some Physicians Formula products at CVS while they were 50% off. One of the products that I picked up is the Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Baked Bronzer in Light Bronzer (what a mouthful).
As previously mentioned, while Physicians Formula could definitely improve their pricepoint (and occasionally, their quality), they certainly get packaging right. Just look at this thing. It's adorable.
Unlike the blush I reviewed recently, which was a big old disapointment, I really like this bronzer. You can get three distinct shades.
- Heart - is an orangy gold. I don't think you could use it as a bronzer, but it could definitely be used as a highlighter, though I tend to use it as an eyeshadow.
- Outer circle - is a champagne brown. On lighter skintones, it could be dark enough to be used as a bronzer, but again, it's shimmery enough that on some skintones it could be a highlighter (or eyeshadow).
- Mixed - is a slightly warmer champagne. Again, highlighter, bronzer or eyeshadow depending on your skintone and proclivities.
The bronzer is baked, so you get an irridescent sheen, but it doesn't contain any straight up glitter. It has good color payoff, but can be easily sheered out. I got a good six hours of wear time out of it before I noticed any fading.
The Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Baked Bronzer in Light Bronzer contains 9.5 grams of product and usually retails for around $11 wherever Physicians Formula is sold. I got mine at CVS (for 50% off).
