Review: Physicians Formula Happy Booster Powder and Blush

I have been scouring the town for the past 2 weeks, looking high and low for the new Physicians Formula Happy Booster products. I finally scored on Sunday at my local Super Walmart.

Happy Booster Face Powder in Translucent ($12.67 at Walmart)

Happy Booster Blush in Rose ($10.63 at Walmart)

These are just darling! So glad I purchased them.

Both products have a slight Violet scent that disappears when you apply them. You know how sensitive I am to smells, and it did not bother me at all.

The powder has a very slight shimmer to it, and I'm using it as more of a highlighter than an all-over finishing powder.

The blush is just gorgeous, but is very very pigmented, so I have a brush application recommendation for you.

I first tried it with a normal, slanted, rather dense blush brush, shown above. This applied it way too heavily and I had to tone it down quite a bit with another lighter product before I was satisfied with the look.

The next day I tried my Sonia Kaskuk skunk brush from Target and the application was much much better. This type of brush picks up less product, and is perfect with a highly pigmented product.

Part of my love for these products may be directly related to the cuteness factor, but hell, they are just darling I'm not ashamed to love them.

By the way, I am doing fab on my resolution to purchase absolutely no new lip products in 2011!

Yet another thing I have to go find! Blush is my absolute favorite type of make-up and while I may come out looking a bit like a "Trixie" from time to time, it just makes me happy. However, I don't know about a resolution to not buy lipstick. That sounds scary! I have a drawer and a purse (and several places around the house) full of lip product, and I don't think I could turn my back on it. You must have some good motivation!
