Review: Physician’s Formula Happy Booster Blush

2 Feb

Hello everyone! Here is the other portion of the review: the blush!

Description: A endorphin releasing scent of violets to calm you for a day’s work. The shade is rose a bright pink when swatched.

Review: The have to say that Physician’s Formula have really stepped up their game but the step up in prices just makes my wallet cry (luckily there are sales). I got the shade Rose in the two pack that I bought. It is extremely pigmented thus a lighter hand is needed when applying this blush to the cheeks. Texture is very smooth but as with the bronzer it feels a little bit tightly pressed into the pan making it hard to pick up some product and when you do pick up it’s a little too much. I think the shade is very universally flattering it suits those with yellow, neutral and pink undertones so anyone of any shade can enjoy this blush. Overall, I think that this blush is definately way better than the bronzer and would recommend you pick this up on sale it’s not worth the high price tag especially here in Canada.

Cost: $13-17CDN @ local drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? Since the blush is better in pigmentation and wear time then the bronzer I say that this is a definite must for those who love cute makeup.

Guess who’s back?

5 Mar

Yeah! I’m back to blogging!!! I felt like the time I took off from blogging was horrible!! I think I have found my addiction…. I’ll add blogging into my list of addictions… and I thought I was trying to quit!!

Putting all that aside all the posts this week starting from Sunday were posts that I scheduled before-hand so I’m glad to be back. Some pretty exciting things is going to happen next weekend so I’m preparing this weekend for next week if that makes any sense. So the plan for next week will be post every other day and I have changed the face of the site… I’ll see how much I like it and if not I’ll change it back.

The plan:

Saturday ( Mar 6 ) – Blog post

Sunday ( Mar 7 ) – Beauty review

Monday ( Mar 8 ) – Blog post with a super exciting surprise!!!

And so goes on the week… I’m going to stop for two days so that I can focus on the preparations for the Super Exciting Surprise Event which you will all know on Mon. ^_^ So the day that I will stop blogging is…. let’s see Wed March 10 and you’ll know why I will need to stop.

Anyways, so excited for the Super Exciting Surprise Event on Sat. Mar 13. ^_^ I’ll do my best to take some photos but we’ll see. ^_^

But putting all the planning aside I have discovered some things today!

1. Michelle Phan put out another video this time in celebration of Tim Burton’s new film Alice in Wonderland!! I want to go see that movie but I have no time and theatres scare me… anyways, here is the video

2. The Body Shop has released out some of their Spring makeup collection online! There were only two things that caught my eye…

 A reusable bag for $5.00CDN AND….

 It’s a cheek stamp! And it comes in two colours… Rose and Coral. They kinda remind me of Etude House’s blush from a few years ago…

 Only Etude’s has nice pink packaging. Anyways, the Body Shop one is $14CDN kinda pricey for a blush but I would really love to try it out.

Well, that will be it for today… I posted a lot of stuff…. anyways off to clean and work on some Japanese homework.

26 Feb

This is going to be another branch in the beauty section of my blog. Beauty intros are introductions to a companies products that I would like to try and I will also post other peoples thoughts on them. Most of peoples thoughts will come from MakeupAlley. Companies that I will review will most likely be from drugstore companies and maybe some higher end brands such as MAC or Shu Uemura.

So Joe Fresh beauty… not much is known about it as it is a specifically a Canadian drugstore brand that is only found at Loblaws or Superstores across the nation.

They have a wide range of products and all the products are under $10CDN. Some of the most listed or wanted products include cheek tint, tinted lip balm, felt tip liner, cream lipsticks, and eyeshadow.
