Recently I purchased the Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow and Mood Boosting Blush in Natural. It’s supposed to have a violet scent that improves your mood and cheers you up. There is a flowery-candy type scent, but it didn’t annoy me. I don’t think it didn’t anything to improve my mood, either.
This is a close up of the Natural blush. Below is the brush that comes with it, which I find useless. It is cute though.
This is the blush swatches on my hand, under a daybulb.

Does it live up to its claims?
It lives up to some of its claims. It is gorgeous, easy to apply and to blend. It does have a nice iridescence. It does smell like something sweet and flowery, which fades quickly enough. I can’t really say it makes me feel happy to apply, but I do like the color.
Would I purchase again?
Probably. I really liked the shade and how it looks on me. I think the fuchsia packaging is cute, though the brush that comes with it is useless for application. I really don’t mind the smell and it doesn’t linger.
What do you think? Have you tried anything from Physicians Formula recently?
Product purchased by me. All opinions are my own.
