Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Lipstick Review

Happy new year! New year, new beauty products to review. I picked this lipstick up recently at CVS and could not wait to try it out. I absolutely love the PF Happy Booster blush which I use constantly, so I had big hope that I would love this as well. There are two different lipsticks available, I ended up going with "I ♥ Nude." I always tend to wear nude lipsticks so I knew I couldn't go wrong with another nude. Haha. Here are my thoughts on this lipstick. 

Cute! It has a heart right on the lipstick!
My Review:
Wow, okay.. I expected to LOVE this lipstick that I might of been too excited which ended up with me getting disappointed. Packaging wise, it was fine. I like the case that the lipstick comes in, so girly and cute.

I had major problems with the lipstick itself though. The texture of it made me feel like I was using a crayon on my lips. Felt really dry once it was on and can you tell by the swatch? Not really getting why they called it "I ♥ Nude." It gave my lips this coral pink color which looked so awful. The swatch makes it look so moisturizing and smooth, but application was neither. I've never had this kind of bad experience with a lipstick before. I tried to give it another go the next day. and it was the same thing. I couldn't get used to it. The texture, the color, everything.
Heart was gone after a few uses.
I really wanted to enjoy this, but sadly I didn't. The only thing I did love was the scent of Violet that it has. But I'm not going to keep a lipstick because of the smell. I would rather take this back and get the Happy Booster Bronzer which is also new. My final take? Don't buy this, and instead pay the few more dollars to get the bronzer or blush if you really want a Happy Booster product. 

I had to start the year off with not the greatest product out there, but only uphill from here on right? 
Let me know if you have tried this lipstick of seen it in stores!
