Blush -Physicians Formula -Murumuru Butter Blush


I have the shade Plum Rose, which is a light dusty mauve. I'm NC20 with yellow undertones and this is the PERFECT contour/blush shade for me. It looks extremely natural but gives dimension to my face. I love it, it's my "go to" blush! Sometimes if I want more color on my face I will apply an other blush just on the apples of my cheeks like Fratboy by the Balm or Obsessed by UD! Most of the times though I just use Plum Rose especially if I go for a quick and natural look. I use the Real Techniques blush brush and I literally apply this all over my face. It never looks muddy or too intense. I also use this blush as my eyeshadow, that usually brings the whole look together!

The formula is buttery and blends effortlessly. The finish isn't flat matte or glittery or shimmery. It just has a beautiful sheen to it. It has the same scent that the butter bronzer has but I can't smell it once it's on my face. I personally love this coco scent!

My mother is NC35 with olive undertones and this blush looks a bit more of a pinky beige on her skin whereas on mine it looks true to the colour you see on the pan. She needs to layer it more though to show up on her skin but it still looks beautiful and goes well with her smokey eye looks.

All in all, if you're nearly close to my skin tone give this a blush a try because it goes well with any type of make up look, you just can't go wrong with this shade! If you have a deeper skintone than mine probably you will need to layer this particular shade a bit more but if you don't mind that then I would say that it worths a try!

I forgot to mention that it doesn't break me out and it stays put during the day which is important to me since I have oily, acne prone skin.

Foundations -Physicians Formula -The Healthy Foundation SPF 20

on 7/18/2018 12:52:00 PM


So before I started using the new CYO Lifeproof foundation this was my everyday foundation. I have sensitive, dehydrated-oily skin with acne and acne scars. I was intrigued when I saw that Physicians Formula was coming out with a new liquid foundation with an expanded shade range compared to their other limited shade options. This foundation has a very creamy and emollioant texture initially, but once it is blended out onto the skin it feels light weight. The finish is natural and skin like- but not satin or dewy. The coverage is a solid medium, but it doesn't build up too much. I also find that either a beauty sponge or a flat top foundation brush works well with this. Never broke me out either. Lasting power is also pretty good, about 8 hours. My one problem with it is the packaging. It has a doe foot applicator that is meant to distribute the product on the face. As many of you know this is quite unsanitary especially for us who struggle with acne. I suspect that when the bottle starts running low it will be difficult to get all the product out. And while I do give PF props for expanding their shade range, the shades are not perfect. I used "LW2" in the winter and "LN3" in the summer. LN3 doesn't suit my undertones (yellow-beige) and looks a bit pink on me, but LW2 is far too light. Overall I still love this makeup and will continue to use it, but the CYO one may be my new go to for my work days.

And I have bought it again! I wear this primer frequently alone. I will use 2 layers to get a nice soft glow also. It makes your tan look sunkissed delicious! I will use it on my chest, neck and upper arms. the antioxidants keeps my skin looking dewy and moist. This is one of my favorite makeup products. CVS frequently has deals on Physician's Formula.

Bronzers -Physicians Formula -Murumuru Butter Bronzer

on 7/15/2018 8:16:00 PM


Oh, Murumuru Butter Bronzer, how I wanted to love you. Most drugstore bronzers, on me, just look like dirt. I'd read so many wonderful things about you, so I got you one day when I had mega-CVS ExtraBucks and discounts on my ExtraCare card. Alas, our love was not to be. The instant that I opened your package, and caught a whiff of your gross coconut-scented odor, I was crushed with disappointment. Physicians Formula (and Tarte, too, for that matter), WHY must you contaminate powdered cosmetics with vile cheap odors?? The saddest part of all is that I like the way this bronzer looks, feels, and lasts. But that SMELL!! (On edit: The shade I purchased is Light Bronzer, and as previously stated, it's a great shade on me. Quite subtle color, and nice texture on the skin. But I just opened it again and EW, P-U.)

Eyeliner -Physicians Formula -Eye Definer- Automatic Eye Pencil

on 7/11/2018 8:21:00 AM


Great value! I bought this product in Dark Brown about 6 months ago, wear it almost every day, and it's still going! It lasts through my 8 hour workday, rarely smears. This is by far the best drugstore liner I've ever tried. It looks quite natural against my medium-fair skin/brown eyes, and looks best with very black mascara and red lipstick. The tip is precise and it can be applied easily and quickly. Sometimes for a slight dramatic look, I use it on my eyelid near the lash line. This will be my go-to everyday natural liner for years to come.
