Hey ladies and gentlemen (if there's any of you out there reading this lol),
Today, I have decided to share with you all a review on the
Physician's Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder in Translucent
Price & Availability:
Drugstores, Walmart, Target for anywhere between $12.99-15.99 (trust me, you can find this on sale often at CVS for quite a bit cheaper).
This powder claims to:
Happy Boost your mood and give you a nice healthy, happy glow.
It also claims to be Paraben free, non comodogenic, hypoallergenic, and dermatologist approved.
-I've found it can be used as an all over face powder.
-A blush (according to PF).
-And a highlighter (according to me lol).
It has a light violet smell which according to the packaging above,
"provides a feeling of joy each time you apply"
To be honest, the smell is very light, if you sniff the powder you can smell it but once its on your face, you cant. It's actually quite pleasant in my opinion. :)
-Comes with a good size mirror on the bottom half and a cute pink and red brush(which is pretty much useless).
-The packaging is a shiny, red mirrored plastic and a clear plastic lid.
-The actual powder is a ton of hearts over lapping in different shades of beige and one little pink heart.
As far as my thoughts on the actual product:
-I've been using it for quite a while and the hearts haven't disappeared and become just a bunch of beige shades mixed together.
-It works great as a highlighter because the shimmer is so finely milled and the formulation isn't super powdery or glittery. I've applied it on the bridge of my nose and on top of my cheeks and it blends nicely without looking like a stark line of shimmery white powder or like a whole bunch of glitter.
-As an all over face powder, it worked well for me. It added shimmer to my face, but it wasn't super noticeable or anything.
-As a blush, I wouldn't recommend, the tiny pink heart isn't pink enough to add any noticeable flush to your cheeks, for that you're better off buying the Happy Booster Blushes.
-It didn't break me out.
-I actually do feel like I'm happier when I wear this, but this might just be my brain tricking me into thinking "Oh well I'm wearing the Happy Booster Powder, let's act happy." lol. Who Knows?
Pink heart alone
All the shades together
All the shades together blended out.
As you can see, the swatches aren't glitter, just glowy and shimmery.
-It adds a nice glow to my face when applied as a powder or highlighter.
-I don't think it's necessarily worth paying $12-16 for it, so in that sense, I wouldn't recommend it.
-It's nice, but it's nothing super special or different. You could probably find a cheaper powder highlighter or shimmery powder.
-If you're going to wear it alone, it doesn't have much coverage at all.
Would I recommend? Yes, if you get it on sale and would like a nice powder highlighter.
But no, for the regular price.
