Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush in 7324 Natural


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!!

hi Mindy! Aren't the hearts sooo cute? Maybe it's the packaging that makes us all happy, not the special formula!

But for me, it's the deal that I got for it makes me smile, haha!

I love it <3!! I'm in Happy Mood when I look at it!! How many colours do they have?

Cutie Fishball said...

Jie Jie, the Happy Booster blush comes in 2 colors, Rose and Natural. Mine is Rose so the colors are a little sheer, which is what I want :)

Vivian said...

very nice color. Sounds like it really a good deal, is this deal good for the whole week?

btw, thanks for your replied last time, i will keep my eye on the next time they have deal like this.

@Vivian- Thanks! It's quite natural so I like it. I will look out for you for L'oreal Youth Code if you are still interested.

I noticed some CVS doesn't have the $6 off PF products and pricing of individual items differ in different stores! Some stores off more discounts than others!

And with CVS cash back, that will make the deal sweeter!

You got a good deal! I have read so many raves about these blushes. =) Too bad these aren't locally available in my country but I still adore looking at the pictures! ^o^

Cutie Fishball said...

Sugar Sugar- I can send one over to you since I grabbed 2 extra ones :)

They just have waaaayy cute packaging that is sooo adorable!

Hi Fishball, just came cross a deal thinking you might also be interested in. But i am not 100% sure if it is true, but most likely will work i think. On Apr 22 Friday, earth day, Origins offer a full size cleanser (A Perfect World Antioxidant Cleanser with White Tea OR Checks & Balances Frothy Face Wash) for FREE when you bring in empty cosmetic products containers to your Origins store. Last year, i missed that day, but i have been using the Perfect world cleanser for sometime, it work pretty good for a cleanser, wish they contain whitening ingredient as well.

Hi Vivian- I know about the promo that Origins have. I got a full size white tea body lotion one year. I like Checks and Balance esp in the winter because my face won't feel that tight because of dryness after washing my face.

I have saved up a few of these empties planning to go to a few Origins around to get some free products, heehee!

Whitening won't do much for me la... I am a "milk chocolate" anyways...

Jie Jie said...

Thanks Cutie Fishball for PF blush, thank youuuu:)

Cutie Fishball said...

Jie Jie - I am glad that you have finally received the blush!!! Don't you think the colors are sheer for a light blush look? perhaps similar to your MJ's puff de cheeks?

Jie Jie said...

yes, a bit sheer, I will try it tomorrow.

Cutie Fishball said...

Jie Jie- it's sheer, but I like it sheer because I dont want monkey's butt cheeks!
