I like very this! I got it on clearance and it gives such a beautiful glow I have very fair skin so it makes me always look blushing, mine even broke and I fixed it and it still works great and how cute is it!

I got this blush as an experiment upon seeing a sale at a local drug store. It looks adorable with the hearts, and the claims to "mimic endorphins" with scent gave me curiosity. I did like the ingredient list and the fact that it is recommended for sensitive/acne-prone skin.

The blush is beautiful and has a wonderful glow to it. The smell is VERY subtle, but nice. I have not noticed it to inspire feelings of happiness, but the packaging is very cute. The brush it comes with is not the best to apply the product..... It is far too narrow, and risks a streaky application. You do have to be very careful and tread lightly, as this blush tends to go from "I think I see something" to "full on harlot" transformations with only one swipe of the brush....although this may be the fault of the brush it comes with.

This blush doesn't irritate my skin and is buildable, going from looking natural by day, to luminous for night life. It doesn't irritate my skin or break me out and I feel good about the ingredients. It wears lightly and looks beautiful. I would repurchase.

as someone who is fairly new to the concept of blush, i decided a few months ago that i should start wearing some to give my pale skin some color. after getting sick of my revlon blush that doesn't stay on for more than two hours, i decided to pick this up at my local rexal when i saw it was on sale for 12 bucks instead of it's original price of 20.

firstly, the thing (other than the sale price) that attracted me to this blush was it's cute packaging. i like the small compartment underneath the blush to hold a small brush (i thought it was cute, okay), even though the brush that comes with this blush is poor quality and harsh on the skin. as for the actual blush, i found that the darker colored hearts were the only shade in the blush that showed up on my cheeks which was disappointing because the lighter hearts are very nice pinky/peach shades that would have looked nice on my skin if they were better pigmented. when using this blush, i had to be careful with how i swirled my brush in the compact because i didn't want too much color in my face from the darker colored hearts, which is annoying. staying power is okay- it lasts around 5 hours, if it isn't humid out. the blush feels silky and nice on the skin, but the pigmentation is odd and never gives you an even glow.

overall, this blush would be good if you have more olive/tanned skin. for me, the color is too harsh and fake on my porcelain skin, and i don't like the strategic way i have to apply this to my face to avoid total clown cheeks. will not repurchase.

Physician's formula happy booster line of blushes and powders is amazing. The texture of the blushes is honestly comparable to Guerlain, quite above mid-end brands. The finish on the skin is the best non matte you can find on the market, in my opinion. For mattes, Illamasqua rules. I have both rose and warm, and both are some of the most versatile blushes I own, looking great with many different makeup looks. The fact that they look so multidimensional on the cheeks due to the design is also a plus. Used with a denser blush brush, these blushes are also very pigmented. Super impressed with these!

The physicians formula blush range is lovely. The shades of pink does give me an awaken and alert look. I really like how it is non comedegenic.

Colour me "disappointed". I was so looking forward to using this blush. I've had my eye on it for a long time and when I saw it on sale recently at a really good price, I jumped at it. Sadly, it's not the "Happy Boosting" experience I was hoping for. Like the previous reviewer, I find this blush poorly pigmented, which surprised me as it looks quite vibrant in the pan and it is "rose" and I'm quite pale so most blushes show up on me quite well without much effort (in fact, I usually have to be careful to use a really light hand).

Certainly the colour can be built up but I find it goes from "nothing" to "too much" quite quickly and I have to be very careful to watch for the "just right" stage. Also, while it's possible in theory, I guess, to make a point of using the more pigmented hearts for more colour, in reality, this isn't very practical unless you have a really teeny, tiny blush brush and even then, trying to do this quickly and if you're in a bit of a rush is just annoying. Even if you do manage to get the "right" colour intensity, I find this blush fades quickly and this is the first blush I've ever encountered that does this.

Packaging is cheap feeling and overly cumbersome (to house a brush that I doubt most people would use unless they were really in a bind). I don't detect ANY scent at all and certainly not a mood-altering/joy inducing one! Seems to me to be a really questionable claim and I'm surprised the company is able to make this claim.

All in all, a disappointment. It looks so pretty and cheery but doesn't really deliver and I would not repurchase.

It is faint so you have to build up the colour. I didn't detect any scent.

Had been wanting to try this out for awhile...Have been using a cover girl blush that I like well enough, but wanted a more glow-y and pink colour. Picked this up for $20.00 at a drug store - yikes - although I am aware Physicians formula is pricey and doesn't always work out. The best luck I've had with PF is their shimmer stripes - The most pigment and nicest colours. I've used blush from them before and wasn't impressed, as well as the bronzing beads which I did like.

Anyway, I was expecting more from this blush. I find the different coloured hearts in the pan are nice and I really like the colours, but once using my brush on them and applying it looks kind of...splotchy. I've tried to pick up just one of the darker or lighter colours on the hearts but same result. It has a good pigment, which is nice, but I can't seem to get an even application of it so far. And then after evening it out I've applied it to too much of my cheek and don't really like the look, even if I like the colour (finally). I'm going to try a couple of different brushes in it, but so far I haven't had luck and it is not something you can quickly apply, definitely takes time to make sure the colour is even. Too much bother for the price, in my opinion!
