I bought this based on the good review plus I just like PF's other products I've tried. I've wanted a brighter pink blush for a while for days that I feel particularly pale and need to look more awake, and this is certainly a very pink, pigmented blush.
I don't use the brush that came with it but when applied with a fluffy blush brush and a light hand, it gives a nice, cool-toned, pink glow. I do need to apply lightly, though.
Good staying power: it looked fresh on my skin after 6 hours.
I like the mild scent but not sure it adds too much to the product overall.
I would buy this again, and would like to try the other color (Natural).

I have fair skin with pink undertone and this blush perfectly compliment my skin and give it a very natural blush. I use it everyday. It is pigmented and a little goes a long way. The packaging is cute but a bit bulky and like many has mentioned, you're better off using your own brush than the one they included. It has a light lavender smell. I usually don't like scented makeup but the smell is very faint and disappear when applied so it's no biggie. I got this at Rite-aid with the translucent powder for BOGO price. It is a bit more expensive for a drugstore product but I love it and will definitely repurchase it.

I got this mainly because it was on sale and I needed a good, pinky/peachy blush. The packaging is so cute, and the hearts just make it so much more fun to use. The blush is the perfect colour for me, and looks really natural and glowy, just like the description.
The only thing I would not recommend for this product is the applicator underneath the blush - although it's kind of cute looking, it's cheap plastic and has really stiff bristles. I threw it away when I found it. I just use a fluffy powder brush on it, and everything works fine.
Definitely would want to repurchase, but I'm not sure how much they are when regular priced, haha.

I LOVE the packaging~!!! It is soooo cute. And I love the little heart designs on the product. It smells pretty nice too. The fragrance is very light. I think someone said it smells sweet and it kinda does. but it's very light. Color is nice too. So far I really like this.
*UPDATE* A little too red for my skintone. Still a really nice product, just too red for me.

I'm loving this blush. It's so cute and very pink. I just use one pass on my cheeks and I'm good for the day. It seems to have good staying power for me. I also got this with the light bronzer at Walmart for only $12. What a good deal!

Maybe I got a bad blush becuase mine has no pigmentation at all. I get a tiny flush when I swipe my blush brush over the entire package, but that's only because the darkest pink color gives off some pigment. When I swatched the colors individually on my hand, they were so so light that I could barely even notice them. The packaging is nice because it easily opens and its obviously cute with the pink package and the hearts, but its going back because it doesnt deliver. There are way cuter drugstore blushes that are way better than this for a fraction of the $13 this cost me.

o no,no ,no ,this is a really bright pink,and i have medium skin tone, but of course the heart pattern its adorable..

Such a phenomenally gorgeous blush. I have Natural as well and I can't stop looking at them because the heart pattern is so cute. Plus they really brighten up your skin. This one packs a punch more than Natural. I love both.

First of all.. the packaging of this blush is so freaking cute! I got this in "rose" and the colour is kind of a pinky-berry, not something I would normally choose... I tend to like coral coloured blushes against my skin tone.. but surprisingly enough this colour looked gorgeous on me. The blush smells very nice, like lavender, as stated, and does not irritate my skin. Overall I really like this blush and it does make me happy.. if only because it looks pretty and smells nice haha. The only issue I do have with this blush is it's staying power.. I find it fades throughout the day.

I bought this because my CVS had their Physicians Formula products 50%. Since the CVS by me doesn't even carry the Mineral Glow Pearls Blush in Rose Pearl (or in any shade, but Rose Pearl is the one I like), I thought this would be close. Nope. It goes on VERY dark, you really have to be super careful when applying it or you will look like a clown. I'm olive skinned & quite tan right now, & this is still dark on me. It would be a great blush for women who have much darker skin than mine. I'll still use this as my summer blush, because once I lose my tan, there's no way I will be able to pull this blush off. But I won't be buying this again, even for 50% off. I'll stick with my Rose Pearl from now on.

I think we all agree that the "mood boosting" aspect of this blush is something of a joke. However, I'm giving this a 5 because it's a great product and totally unique; when I saw it, I had to have it. I think all those pinky hearts appeal to the little girl/girly girl in all of us! And on the cheeks, it's a lovely, glowing pink--who couldn't use a little of that? The packaging is cute, if bulky--it's metallic pink instead of that ugly gray like a lot of PF items. Even the brush is cute, if not particularly useful. As for the scent, I can take it or leave it: it's not up to the standards of my Bourjois blushes, but it's not awful or overwhelming either. Anyway, I just think this is gorgeous and a must-have for serious blush enthusiasts!
Update: I would still buy this, because as a product, it is beautiful On using it several times, however, I find it somewhat disappointing; it really doesn't do anything special as a blush. I have many cheaper pink blushes that do for me what this does. So I would only recommend buying this if you just "need" a pink blush, or if you're especially attracted by the embossed hearts, as I was.

This blush is super pigmented. It was at CVS on sale for $8. It goes on smooth and lasts all day without looking too shimmery. A little goes a long way, just be careful when using your brush through the the darkest red heart.

I loved the Translucent one, but the Rose one was just too pigmented to use.
I'm pretty pale, and have a tendency to be heavy-handed with makeup. Put those two together and Happy Booster in Rose just doesn't work well for me. It just comes on too strong and looks clownish on me, no matter how hard I try! :-
It doesn't boost my mood, which would be really disappointing if I had ever actually expected it to. At least it looks cute sitting in my ever-growing stash of makeup!

I got this from a friend of mine. I like the packaging alot since it's unique and the hearts in the blush pan makes it look super cute. 'Rose' is a medium pink shade which looks nice on my medium skin-tone, and I would imagine it would work also for olive and darker skin-tones too. The formula is velvety soft and quite pigmented. Although it appears to look like it has alot of shimmer, it barely shows up on my skin and if it does, it is quite subtle. Since it is quite pigmented, be careful with how much you apply because it can look clownish quite easily. Blush smells a bit like baby powder? Well, at least that's what it smells like to me. The brush that comes with it hidden under the pan is quite scratchy, so just use a brush of your own. Will last a long time since there is loads of product.

I think that like most people, I was drawn to this product because of the packaging. I didn't expect it to boost my mood, but I love the pink packaging and all those happy little hearts! I still love the look of the product, but that's where my love affair ends. I think the product itself is pretty mediocre. It's quite sheer, and I'm not a fan of the shimmer. Also, because of the multi-colored hearts, it's hard to tell exactly what color and where it's at on your brush. Sometimes I end up with more pink on one cheek than I wanted thanks to that darker colored heart in this blush. It's definitely ok, not a bad product. I just have too many other blushes that I adore to reach for this very often.

I quite like this blush. It does not look powdery, smells pretty nice, and is a pretty shade of true pink. It fades a bit throughout the day. The shimmers give a nice glow and the pigmentation is good in that you won't get too much blush on the first sweep but you can definitely build up. One thing I've noticed is that a couple of the colors (such as the lightest pink) have more pigmentation than the rest, so that you are never sure whether the color will show on the place where you put your brush or whether it will apply evenly. I don't really scrutinize my cheeks after i put on the blush, so i don't find the "unevenness" noticeable at all. it's pretty easy to work with the blush. it hasn't made me breakout at all and the packaging is really pretty. overall, this blush is not the best in the whole wide world, but there is nothing outstandingly wrong with it either. i recommend this if you want a natural-ish pink blush.

Got this blush on a whim. I was at CVS for something else,it was on sale for 8 dollars and I have heard good things about it here on mua. Decided to give it a try. It's a pretty color but I didn't notice to make me any happier, not that I expected it to anyways. Lol. I have similar blush colors and think the cute hearts design is more suited for my 13 year old daughter, so it will go to her.

Love this blush!! Love it even more that I waited to get it and got it for two bucks when my CVS was having a sale!! This color looks wonderful on my NC 20 complexion. Plenty of pigment and not too much shimmer = )

It's cute, but the novelty wears off quick. I now hate the packaging because it looks like pretend/play make-up for kids, but I adore this blush!
On my NC30 skin, it is not so much shimmery as it is "luminous". I use one of my synthetic Sigma f-series brushes to apply, so I can never overdo the application. My cheeks look glowy and flushed. The best part of it all? I have EXTREMELY sensitive cheeks. MAC and NARS blushes break me out. The only ones that could work for me were BE and MUFE HD blushes... until now.
Surprisingly, with its scent and having oil content in it, my cheek area does not break out, and it does not irritate my skin! I like the smell - it faintly reminds me of YSL's La Parisienne perfume.
No, it does not make me "happier" on first application, but it does make me happy that it is non-reactive w/ my sensitive skin, even with the fragrance... and that the fragrance is pleasant and smells of roses.
I definitely would repurchase since I got them BOGO50% off, AND I was able to use the $4 off sticker on one of them... I was able to save enough money to purchase this, the blush in Natural AND the bronzer. Sadly, I haven't touched the other two because I've been so in love with this one. In due time, I'll crack those bad boys open during the summer to play with, but I definitely have no problem displaying these great work horses next to my higher-end stuff because they work - and they work WELL.
No regrets buying into the hype. Physician's Formula: chuck the useless brush and make it more affordable already to please your fans.
Another great product from Physician's Formula to try is their shimmer stack gel liners! Such a great value for 4 different colors, they have great staying power, and can double as a cream shadow base! Good job, PF! Keep it up, and I might just be a fan for life!

This blush is so adorable! Used with a light hand, this is a lovely shade, but it can be easy to overdo. Start light and add more later, if you like. It isn't matte, but neither is any shimmer overbearing.
It cost me about $12 which I feel is worth it. The brush that comes with it, as with most products, is fairly useless. You'll have better results using your own. The plastic seems a little flimsy, but it has not broken or cracked yet.
Generally I dislike Physicians Formula, but this blush in Rose (also Natural) are beautiful, a nice quality, and adorable. They really did a nice job with these. Personally, I like the scent, but if you're sensitive be advised it is quite strong, but seems to fade on the skin. As for the mood boosting - total gimmick, but I wasn't expecting it to boost my mood.
All in all, it's a nice blush and if I'd recommend it to a friend to try.
