Physicians Formula Natural Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush

Physicians Formula Natural Happy Booster ($11.99 for 0.24 oz.) is a light-medium pink with strong, warm undertones–it’s not quite coral, but it’s warm enough that it starts to approach that territory. It had a soft, luminous finish that’s glow-y without being frosty. NARS Realm of the Senses #1 is darker, less shimmery. Physicians Formula Warm is actually very similar to this; it is just slightly warmer. Tom Ford Frantic Pink is lighter. Chanel Fleur de Lotus is less pink, more coral. See comparison swatches.
