[Haul] Brand Introduction to Physicians Formula

One of the highly acclaimed drugstore makeup brand from the US, Physicians Formula is now accessible to Malaysian beauty market. Here's a glance of what I've picked up from Watson. The brand itself is hypoallergenic, paraben-free, dermatologist approved, non-comedogenic and cruelty-free.

Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush
I am so happy to see this blush at the counter. It is one of the top product in Physician Formula that I've been wanting to try. The product is infused with 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. It has a sweet scent of Violet that provides a feeling of joy each time you apply. I am not sure how effective it is to enhance our mood, but the combination of colours and heart shape is nice to look at. The shade that I picked is translucent which works as a highlighter. I won't be doing the swatch in this post yet because I want to take my time to admire the lovely hearts. I would like to explore if this product can work as setting powder as well. I will definitely write a separate review on this product after I've done admiring it.

Organic Wear 100% Natural Orgin CC Curl + Care Mascara
We have organic foundation, lipstick and powder flooding in the market. But not all the time you come across an organic mascara. Physicians Formula has a product line called Organic Wear where all the products are 100% natural. The mascara wand is made of recyclable materials. The product itself contains aloe, cucumber and tapioca starch. I am looking forward to trying this, especially when the website claims that the mascara lasts for 24 hours of wear.

Nude Wear Touch of Glow Stick
The Nude Wear line by far, has the prettiest girly girl packaging. This is the Nude Wear Touch of Glow Stick. There is no specific mention that this product is a concealer or a foundation stick. I believe it works both ways. I confess, I bought this because of the pretty packaging. Among the other products that have similar packaging are the Touch of Blur (liquid concealer) and Touch of Glow Foundation. I bought this one instead because it is a product in between. The swatch looks bright on my skin tone, I would try to see if it works as a highlighter for me as well.

Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio
I fell in love with this eyeliner trio. I can see a lot of potential for this product. The pigmentation is good, it is soft enough to blend together which can be used as eyeshadow as well and the champagne colour can be used as highlighter as well. I swatched it on my hand and leave it for a few hours. The colour stays well and don't smudge at all. It is definitely long lasting.

The product range at Watson is not extensive as the ones in US. There are only a few products available for each range. However, seeing the brand presence in our very own drugstore is good enough. I do wish the distributer bring in the Argan  Wear and more bronzers. The Argan Wear products packaging are inspired from Middle East and have a lot of gold in it. It looks really luxurious and expensive. I can't find any bronzers at the counter. Hey, we Asians need bronzer as well!

If you are interested in the products, I have a few shopping tips for you. Do try out the products in Watson and see if they suit you. Jot down the product name and shade then make your purchase through Watson Online. You save up to RM10 per product. On top of that, you will receive Gift With Purchase and also RM10 off from every RM100 or RM5 off from every RM50 spent online. I do regret not checking out the Watson Online store before making my purchase. I was like a kid at candy store when I saw the PF counter and all my excitement overpowers all my consciousness.

Besides Watson, you can also purchase the PF products from Hermo. Almost all the products sold out on Hermo, so best is still to check out the Watson Online store.

Have you tried any PF products? What are the products that you think I should try from the brand? I do have RM10 coupon off which I want to utilize on more PF products.
