[Review] Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder (Translucent)

Ultra-smooth, perfecting powder in a complementary palette of colour blends together to even out skin tone with a flawless radiance. Vibrant pink heart gives cheeks a healthy pop of colour. Infused with the 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.

Physicians Formula
Product name:
Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder
Product function:
(To be honest, I can’t tell if it suppose to be a highlighter or blush or both. And it seems like Physicians Formula themselves can’t decide on the function. I went to the website and the product appears on both categories.)
It has a combination of champagne, skintone browns and Barbie pink shades.
Available at:
Made in:
·         It is said to be a mood lifter from the Violet scent. I am not sure if it is true but it is definitely lift up my mood with the pretty heart shapes embossed on the product. The scent doesn’t last long. It goes away after awhile.
·         Like most Physicians Formula products, it is suitable for sensitive skin.
·         Because of its double function as highlighter and blush, you get double value. Swirl to the left and you will pick up more of the highlighter. Swirl to the right and you get more of the blush.
·         It comes with a small brush with is super handy.
·         It has a lot of shimmers that makes your skin looks like a disco ball.
·         I’m not sure how to use this product specifically, other than brushing it on top of my makeup to get the glittery effects for special occasions.
·         It is not daily wearable. For the minute effects it gives, I can definitely live without it.

The packaging got me some love and hate. It comes with a little brush and mirror which is super handy for those on-the-go like me so you don't have to pack extra brush and mirror. But on the other hand, the presentation is poor. It looks cheap, like kids makeup. And the clear plastic dome cover does not look sturdy enough to keep the product safe. Anytime it can break into pieces and spoil the product. Also, I took so long looking for the brush. It is hidden underneath the products and it is not easy to lift up the tray of the product. I already spoiled the product by digging in my fingernails while trying to lift it up.

I honestly won't purchase this again due to my confusion on how to use the product. The super glitter effect is something I don't like on my makeup, but definitely works for those who does bridal makeups or special occasion makeups. Overall, the color payoff, pigmentation and packaging are great. If you are deciding whether to get this or not, that depends on how often you need to have a sparkly makeup.
