Tinted Moisturizer -Physicians Formula -Organic Wear - Fair to Light


This stuff smells like plastic with added chemicals to me, and I’m not usually sensitive to smells! The consistency is oily and runny and it looks just “ok” on my skin. Got this on sale at Rite Aid 3 months ago at 1/2 off and that is why I tried it. Might be good for some but it’s not for me!

Highlighters -Physicians Formula -Butter Highlighter

on 5/22/2018 3:25:00 PM

so i told myself i wouldnt be buying another hightlighter or makeup until i made a sizeable dent in my collection.
but then riteaid had to have a sale to make it nearly impossible to resist. for the record i dont consider bogo 50% of to be a sale,
bogo 75%, 40% off, bogo frees are what i consider sales

anyways, so ive been seeing this in stores since it got released and ive done well in resisting but no more.
this product is so beautiful, the product is very creamy and intense imo. i got the champagne shade, and although it is a bit too yellow, it is the best shade for my skintone.

i dont like the packaging, id much rather have a flip top than the twist cap, yet i like that it is compact and not bulky like the butter bronzer.

this product lasts pretty much all day on my skin.

Tinted Moisturizer -Physicians Formula -Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Work It! Marathonista Tinted Moisturizer SPF 40

on 5/22/2018 8:56:00 AM


This review is basically aimed at women over 50: Based on the other reviews, I'm in the minority here. I found this formula to be sticky and waxy. As a woman over 55, I'm looking for a tinted moisturizer that actually moisturizes/softens skin and lines. This product seems to sit on top of my skin. It's gummy to the touch and has a reflective sheen that, on 56-year-old skin, emphasizes lines and pores rather than creates the dewy-and-diminished pore size I'm after. I would not repurchase but suspect for younger skin this product might be fine - and most of the positive reviews on this are from people younger! On the plus side, the packaging is fine (pretty, utilitarian and hygienic), and the color, at least for me, was also okay.

Bronzers -Physicians Formula -Butter Collection Palette

on 5/22/2018 8:56:00 AM


I wasn't sure I'd like this palette, but after seeing a ton of gorgeous looks being created with it on Youtube, I decided that for $12 (TWELVE DOLLARS AT WALMART, PEOPLE!!!), it was worth checking out.

So yeah, $12. I know it's a little more on the PF site, but these are popping up in Walmarts all over the country, so keep your eyes peeled. Because that is an insanely good value.

In the Light / Medium set, which is what I purchased, you get a Butter Bronzer in the shade "Bronzer" (a fairly neutral, lighter bronzer with a very slight sheen that doesn't look shimmery or glittery), a Butter Blush in "Natural Glow" (peachy/pink with gold sheen), and two Butter Highlighters in exclusive shades - "Full Moon" (a light, whitish highlight with golden glow - SO PRETTY), and "Galactic" (an almost lilac, icy highlight with tons of glittery shimmer). The bronzer, blush, and highlighter in "Full Moon" work wonderfully on my light, somewhat olive skin for an everyday glowy look. I don't tend to wear foundation; I mostly just conceal under my eyes and on any blemishes I may have, and then powder those areas. In spite of not having a powder layer underneath, the bronzer and blush blend out so beautifully without looking muddy or cakey. The highlight is a gorgeous golden sheen that makes me look like a dewy, bronze goddess and I love it. "Galactic" is a bit too shimmery for me to wear as a highlight on my face (that's not to say that it wouldn't look AMAZING on other complexions), but as an eyeshadow, it's stunning. It's so glittery and catches light in the most fantastic way.

The perfume that comes with this kit is nice, but I can take it or leave it. I may give it away, since I don't really like how it pulls on me. It ends up smelling a smidgen like B.O., and I'm not here for that.

The packaging is VERY bulky. I know they had to accommodate the perfume, but it is overkill and hard to stash in my everyday makeup bag (which isn't exactly what you'd call full to begin with). It's pretty, but it's a cheap cardboard. I may just grab a Z Palette and depot the whole thing into it.

Over all, I really do love this palette. The shades are gorgeous, blend beautifully, actually LAST (even on my oily skin), and are a fantastic value. I'll definitely be using this every day this summer! I may even buy a backup!

Foundations -Physicians Formula -The Healthy Foundation SPF 20

on 5/21/2018 6:01:00 PM


At first I didn't like this foundation, it made my oily skin even more oily. I loved the way it looked on application but I was blotting like two hours later. This was using it with Revlon Pore Reducing Primer. How I found it to work for me is using a mattifying primer (Rimmel Stay Matte). This really helps keep the oilness at bay. Now I love it and find myself reaching after it more often. It really does have a medium-full coverage and is easily buildable. I use one layer over my entire face and put a 2nd layer on my age spots to cover them up. I highly recommend this to those who have normal to dry skin, if your skin is oily you will need a matte primer underneath.
