I really love this blush. This is the first PF blush that has worked for me. I have tried two of their other blushes, but they were too light or not pigmented enough for my NC44 skintone. Thanks PF!!! I love the different tones of pink, especially when they are swirled into one. I didn't like the price point of these in CVS. It was over $13. I would never pay that much for a drugstore blush, but there was a $3 coupon attached the product, another $3 off a PF product printed off the coupon station in CVS, I had a couple of Extra Bucks, and that week CVS was giving $7 Extra Bucks when you purchased a PF product. So to sum all of that up, with all my coupons, CVS practically payed me to purchase that blush. I dislike the bulky, excessive packaging, but almost all drugstore makeup products are like that. It's time for them to change that. Overall, fantastic blush, and its WOC friendly.

I love the packaging and the design, and I absolutely adore the smell, it's heavenly, and it makes the duo fibre brush I apply it with smell great too! The pink colour can be really pigmented, but I apply it with my duo fibre skunk brush and it looks like the perfect soft pink blush. I have some acne on my cheeks, and this is the first blush to not make them look a thousand times worse. And this blush lasts the whole day, over eight hours, on my very oily skin. Can't get better than that. =D

OOOOO Soooo pretty. Ok so i was suckered in to the whole thing the pretty hearts the smell. Thank god its an amazing blush also. Im not really happy about payin $13 for it but i did get a 3 dollar off coupon so it came to $11.11 or something. Now as for the blush amazing pigment you must use a light hand or you may end up looking like a clown no shimmer when used it makes a nice just came in from the cold look i love it iv been using it everyday since i got it. As for the packaging the clasp did come off when i first opened it but i was able to put it back in so now its fine. I will most deff buy this again if i run out

I was so excited when this powder was released. Physician's Formula makes the best quality drugstore makeup.
The scent is heavenly. The embossed hearts are adorable. The non-shimmery color is really beautiful and natural. The pigment is better than average. I LOVE IT.
I just know this stuff will be discontinued. PF really pissed me off be discontinuing my HG brow wax, the Wonderbrow :(
I'm going to buy a backup.

I Loved this so much when I saw it! I paid $13 for it, (which I would usually refuse to pay for an ordinary blush) but I was suckered in with that cute design. The color is nice but not worth $13 and it does smell quite lovely, but very perfumey. The brush included it awful. To be honest, I don't even want to use it because I'm afraid of ruining the design.. :/ I say if you want it, get it. If you don't think it's worth it, you're probably right.

So gimmicky but the quality is there along with cute packaging so that makes me happy. I love anything with hearts on it and the glowy pink shade is so gorgeous! I have tan skin and it shows up nicely on me. Kinda like MAC Dollymix but better since it doesn't look as reddish as Dollymix did on me. You do not have to pack it on, it's pigmented and bright. It's perfect paired with a lil bronzer, eyeliner, and gloss.

I was suckered in by the gimmicky packaging but it actually is a beautiful blush. Also love the smell. Buying this product definitely lifted my mood lol.

This is an adorable concept. The hearts are super cute and it smells soooo nice! Not sure about the "mood boosting" properties but it certainly is a great blush. I'm not so fond of the packaging, it's thick, bulky & the applicator that comes with it is useless The color is pretty intense so it's best applied with a light hand. It gives you a healthy pretty glow, worth the hype!

Pros: Super cute, smells good, great color pay off
Cons: Clasp broke as soon as I opened it, too expensive for drugstore ($10.50), must use an extremely light hand

After hearing about these on MU board and falling in the love with the adorable packaging I picked a couple of these up. These are great quality and *extremely* pigmented so be sure to use a light hand. This goes on in such a way that your natural skin still shows through so it gives more of a flushed, just came in from outside on a cold day look. So pretty and the hearts....too cute!! I don't know about the mood boosting part but it's a great product and comparable to a HE blush IMO.

This is a lovely blush, very pigmented, and smells delicious! The hearts are precious! Not a huge fan of the brush that comes with, but I have yet to see a brush included in a drug store brand that rocks like my brush collection does! Would totally buy again!

Very pretty color and gives me a lovely pink flush. Cute packaging and design. I'm quite fair and I have to use a light hand but a great color.

I hate to be the one bad review - but this just didn't work for me. For starters, my first time opening the product, the little clasp broke off on the compact. As for the product itself, I could not get it to apply very evenly and the color was a bit too rosy for my skintone (NC30) asian complexion.
I'm not big into sparkles or shimmer on my face, I prefer matte blushes. On the plus side, it had decent color payoff. Lucky for me CVS has a great return policy so back to the store it went.

I have never purchased a Physician's Formula product before... I actually only got this because I had a $10 coupon on PF from CVS. I asked the makeup board here on MUA for recs and they mentioned the Happy Booster blushes. I figured I might as well give it a try since the coupon made the product free (actually, there was a $3 off coupon on the blush and CVS let me use both coupons so I MADE $2 by purchasing it LOL). I chose Rose since Natural, while lovely, looked like it could be very similar to a Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights I already own. Also, I am extremely pale so bright pink shades tend to work better for me than more brown/tawny tones. I am not a terribly girly-girl so to be honest the metallic pink compact and heart designs are not a selling point with me... not quite a turnoff, but I wouldn't buy it just for the hearts if you know what I mean. The violet fragrance was surprisingly pretty (although the added fragrance worried me a bit since I have sensitive skin) but after a few days had already faded quite a bit. As other reviewers have mentioned, the brush is basically useless and the compartment for it adds a lot of bulk to the compact. However, the compact itself seems sturdy and well-made and I like the opening mechanism. Now, on to the blush itself... I am extremely impressed by this blush! I have been using a Trish McEvoy #37 (bronzer brush) which is a long-ish, tapered brush that gives a sheer application. I swirl the brush over the blush, tap off the extra, and apply. Rose is pigmented but not ridiculously so... this is going to be a blush that can work for very pale skin tones (like mine) and very dark tones alike. On me, it appears as a bright, clear slightly "hot" pink with a great glow -- not shimmer, not sheen, just a little brightening effect. It has a lovely level of sheerness that lets the skin peek through and while you have color to your cheeks it is not an obvious "blush" look. The best comparisons I can make from my stash in terms of color once on the skin is Stila Fuschia Convertible Color (a cream blush) or the blush from the Bobbi Brown Pink Raspberry palette (which is matte). I have found Rose to last all day on my cheeks and it does not darken nor lose its glow. Also, despite the fragrance I have not had any problems with breakouts or allergic reactions. I can't say I buy into the "happy boosting" capabilities of this blush from a chemistry perspective, but I must say that I feel very pretty wearing it and that in turn makes me happy! :) I highly recommend giving this a look and I will definitely check out PF for blushes in the future.

I love this blush!! This caught my eye due to the cute hearts and the color.Its has a very nice violet smell and gives a very pretty rosy pink color.I dont know if anything in it really makes me feel happier but just the smell and the look of it makes me feel happy putting this on.

I finally found one of these after going to all the Walmarts and the Target in town! I think the concept of this is adorable. I'm not sure if that happy-boosting chemical really works, but it doesn't need to because how could you not be happy anyway when using this adorable little blush? The packaging gets a total 5 from me because it is really pretty and thought out. Even the brush is semi-usable if one needed a quick touch up while out and about. I love the actual blush, too, of course. The design and scent is divine and the color is very pretty. I think it is build-able depending on the brush used. I'm happy to have this blush in my collection!!

Love this blush!!! I love the packaging, the scent and the color payoff. You have to use a light hand with this one otherwise you'll look like you got slap in the face lol....
I got this at Rite Aid. Paid $11.95 for it and its going to last me forever because a little goes a long way.

I really like this product. I bought both the pink and the natural. I think I like the natural a bit better. It has a little shimmer to it, but not overwhelmingly so. I like it.

I finally have Happy Boosters! This review is for the shade "Rose". I also have a review for "Natural" under the HB G&M Boosting Blush title. Let me review the presentation first. The product itself really does put you in a good mood just by looking at it. The pretty puffy pink hued hearts really do put a smile on your face. The look of it just puts you in that time when you were a little girl and things were perfect, you didn't have to worry about paying bills, holding a job, caring for a family. As for the "happy boosting" smell. It's a light floral that is soothing to the senses. I normally don't like floral scents but this scent is subtle enough not to onset a headache. Now onto the performance of this product. The pigmentation is pretty good for a ds blush. I've tried previous blushers from PF in the past and weren't all that impressed with them so this one really surprised me. The color itself is very cool more of a hot pink rather than a rose, IMO. Honestly, I do like the color "Natural" better than this one. The effect of this blush is a tad bit too shimmery for my liking. If you use a heavy hand, the shimmery sheen tends to overpower the color itself so be careful. this blush does come with a mirror and small brush located under the blush itself. The brush is very cute, it has a hot pink handle and pink and red bristles. The brush is TINY but is pretty soft for ds. The price was very reasonable, I believe I paid around twelve dollars for this at Walmart. Overall, I am very HAPPY with this purchase and it was well worth all the stalking I did to get it!

I usually never buy PF (weird, expensive products to me), but I've discovered blush for the first time in my life and this little thing call my name loudly! Now let's be totally honest about the design - with those fat, adorable little shimmering hearts smiling up at you, how could you not bring one home? I picked up Rose. The violet scent is lovely and fades gradually. The colors in Rose are definitely cool-toned, ranging from baby pink to plum, with fine shimmer. The colour is a sweet, sexy flush which can be built to a rosy pin-up cheek. In Canada it's $17.99, par for PF's usual prices, but it does have a $6 mail-in rebate offer. I love this and having become a blush convert, now totally appreciate that little rush of happiness that it gives. Guess it works!
