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.BUY PHYSICIANS FORMULA PRODUCTS FROM PRICELINE
