I could not resist buying this happy little product to try out and review. I bought this about a week ago and have been using it ever since. I usually stay away from powders all together because my skin will look extra dry if I use it. Lately my skin hasn't been as dry, so using this has been actually a good thing. Dare I say a "happy" time?
Physicians Formula describes this powder as:
- Ultra-smooth, perfecting powder in a complementary palette of color blends together to even out skin tone with a flawless radiance.
- 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.
- The sweet scent of Violet provides a feeling of joy each time you apply.
Here's what I thought:
Packaging - I actually love the packaging. It's pink, has a mirror on the bottom with a small brush, and hearts that I adore. To open the powder you just push the button and it will pop open. Super simple and cute.
Scent - I thought the scent would get really tiring after a while or possibly give me a headache. But that did not happen at all. It's a pleasant smell and that's the point where I get "happy" to use it. I know, how could a makeup product make you happy? I didn't believe it either, now I do.
Product - I bought the beige, which I would of did a swatch of, but it was too light to even see the swatch. The powder itself is soft and gives me a sheer coverage. Which I expected, I knew it wasn't going to be heavy or extremely pigmented. Just a nice light powder.
Price - Okay the price... It retails for $13.95 which I kind of feel is a bit overpriced. I wish it would of been at the least $10.95. I was able to get mine for $7.95 with the $3 off coupon on the box and CVS extra rewards. So if you can, buy it with coupons or on sale.
So overall, I love this product. Even though the price is a bit steep (for a drugstore product) I can't stop using it. So that must say something good about this powder. Hope you enjoyed this review!
