Physicians Formula Powder Palette Multi-Coloured Custom Blush For Blondes & Brunettes

A few weeks ago, Physicians Formula kindly sent me a huge care package (thanks so much!!) – it was like Christmas – and I ooh’ed and aah’ed over everything before deciding that the first product I would review would be the Powder Palette Multi-Coloured Custom Blush.  Well, technically, blush-es because there are 2 in the range – catered to complement your hair colour – for Blondes and Brunettes.

How interesting right??  Let’s take a closer look at them…

A pink lover’s wet dream! 😛

Typical Physicians Formula nifty packaging with hidden compartments enclosing a brush and mirror.  Admittedly, not the best brush quality, but when you’re doing your makeup-on-the-go (or if you’re like me and you can neverrrr find a clean makeup brush!!) then you cannot complain.

Pretty hexagonal pattern.

The blush colours for the Brunettes are warmer with a golden shade in the palette.

And the Blondes have a lot of cool pinks in the mix.

You know what?  When I was photographing the blushes, I preferred the pinks in the Blondes and I thought it would complement me better.  I thought they had got it wrong!  #arrogant

Brunettes is on the left and Blondes is on the right.

But when I swatched it, it became apparent!  Yep, I was wrong and PF are right.  The pink shades really do complement their respective hair colours.

The colours are buildable and can pack a punch so don’t go OTT like I did.  I gave myself super rosy cheeks one day but we were only heading out to a burger joint (not McDonald’s!) for a bite to eat so I didn’t really care.

Also, if you use the enclosed brush (I used it for swatching), it generates a lot of powder fall-out especially if you give it a good swirl like I did.  But if you use a softer blush brush, it’s not as bad.

    I’m unhappy with ALL my blushes right now, so I might check the blonde version of this out. Love the hexagons!

    That has to be the FIRST time a makeup product has been marketed with the emphasis on hair colour, lol!

    I love how pretty it is in the pan, though, and the brunette is really beautiful on your skin!

    When I first looked at the two of those I thought that the Brunettes one will become my favourite (I was blonde at the time) but, like in your case, PF was right and after testing both shades I fell in love with the Blondes shade 🙂

    I love pink and these Physicians Formula blushes look divine! I love the look of both but judging by the above comments I’ll have to go with my brunette hair colour and try the one for brunettes first!

    Also just to let you know, I host a makeup and beauty link up party called Monday Makeup Madness each Monday through to Wednesday night on my blog. You are most welcome to join in if you like 🙂

    I don’t think physicians formula gets enough credit for their products! Everything I use of there’s is of great quality and gently enough on sensitive skin. A bonus is that they’re quite affordable too! DF xoxo

      Yes, I love it when Priceline does 40% off makeup. I always head for PF

    I love PF to death but I always struggle with their blushes not being pigmented enough for my skin-maybe this is the product to change it all!

      Oh yes, this is really pigmented so I have to make sure I am not too heavy handed
