Lately I have been running rounds to my local drugstore, CVS, because my friend in Japanese would like to try some drugstore brand cosmetics from America.
Little did I know that with the use of coupons and CVS Extra Bucks rewards that savings can be that significant for certain brands at CVS!!
For instance, CVS is running a $6 off for all Physicians Formula foundation, blushes and bronzers. And there is an additional $4 savings from the manufacturer's coupon "peelies". These retails for $11.99 at my local CVS and the grand total is a mere $1.99 plus tax. It's a deal, right?
I have bought these Physicians Formula Happy Booster blushes before for my other friends but I have not yet tried them myself. It's been a long time since I have been using drugstore brands (like college maybe?) and I think I would like to try drugstore brands once again. Wouldn't it be great to buy good quality drugstore cosmetics at a bargain price?
I have picked up this Happy Booster blush in Natural. I have plently of pigmented blushes and I wanted something natural for an non dramatic blushy glow. The hearts on the blush are just wayyy too adorable!
Lifting the blush compartment, you will see a mirror and the blush brush that it came with.
The brush is a dual colored synthetic fiber brush but it's quite rough. I think it maybe better off to just use my own MAC blush brush^^
I know I am supposed to swirl all colors but I wonder if the individual hearts will show some difference in the colors, and voila:
And when applied to my cheeks, to the left before blush, and to the right after applying blush:
It does give my face a healthy non-dramatic glow. ME LIKE! And I especially like the fact I got it for 2 bucks!
At the back of the package, it claims this blush has a sweet scent of Violet and will give a mood boosting effect. It does smell like something sweet, but very very faint. Do I really feel happier? I don't know, but I am happy because I got a great deal with a bunch of drugstore cosmetics haul!!
