Physicians Formula Happy Booster PowdersBy Glossqueen
Here's what Physician's Formula have to say about their Happy Booster products: Infused with our Happy Boost Blend, featuring Happy Skin and Euphoryl, natural plant extacts which have been shown to promote a feeling of happiness by mimicking the effect of endorphins and helping protect the skin from environmental stress.
The sweet scent of violet provides a feeling of joy each time you apply.
They are right about the 'sweet scent of violets', it's a lovely scent. I can smell it when I apply the powder but it fades straight away, which is a shame cause I think it'd be quite to have a face that smelled like violets. I can just imagine people coming up to me and telling me my face smelled nice, hahaha.
All of three of these powders are beautiful. They are light and easy to apply, so perfect for my pale skin. I can swipe them on when I'm in a hurry and don't need to worry about blending them as the coverage is sheer. They are all buildable for the days when I want more coverage/have more time to apply my make-up properly.
The blush costs $21.95 and the bronzer and powder cost $29.95.
Translucent powder - I've been using this as a finishing powder over the top of my foundation or tinted moisturiser. It helps to set my make-up and makes my skin look fresh and glowy. This also works well to brighten up my ever present dark circles. For the under eye area I just use a very light dusting of the colours on the bottom right of the palette.
For those days when I am in a rush (every day!) the pink heart can be used as a blush, which saves me having to dig out another product.
Rose - This is so pretty! Lots of beautiful pink hearts. I keep this on my counter so that I can look at how pretty it is (yes, I know I'm strange). Blush is one of those products that I'm not very good with. I either don't apply enough or I apply too much, however this is truly fool proof. I swipe my brush over it a few times and end up with a gorgeous, natural flush of colour.
Bronzer - This is perfect for pale skinned bronzer phobes like me. It gives me a nice boost of colour without making me look like an oompa loompa. Plus, it is easy to use, I can swipe it on in a few seconds without worrying about having to make sure it's blended well. The colour is light and subtle, but buildable if you want darker coverage.
Surprisingly, the ingredients list for all three products is the same.
Ingredients: talc, corn starch, dimethicone, octyldodecyl stearoyl stearate, zinc stearate, pentaerythrityl tetraisostearate, astrocaryum murumuru seed butter, sunflower seed oil, lecithin, phytosteryl canolate, plukenetia volubilis seed oil, rhodiola rosea root extract, rosemary leaf extract, theobroma grandiflorum seed butter, schinus terebinthifolius seed extract, palm alcohol, phenoxyethanol, potassium sorbate, fragrance. May contain: carmine, iron oxides, manganese violet, mica, red 7 lake, red 6, red 28 lake, red 30 lake, titanium dioxide, ultramarines, yellow 5 lake.
