Physicians Formula Rose Sexy Booster Sexy Glow Blush
Physicians Formula Rose Sexy Booster Sexy Glow Blush

Physicians Formula Rose Sexy Booster Sexy Glow Blush ($11.99 for 0.19 oz.) is a soft, subtly warm-toned pink with a silvery-white sparkle and metallic sheen. The majority of the powder is a warmer, pale pink (almost peachy), and then the center is a darker, berry-ish pink. There is some sparkle, as well as shimmer. MAC Rio is darker but has a similar sheen. Giorgio Armani No. 08 has a sheen but less color. MAC Stunner is warmer. MAC Easy Manner is less shimmery. MAC Porcelain Pink is less pink but has a similar sheen. Illamasqua Lies is cooler-toned but has a similar sheen. See comparison swatches.

According to Physicians Formula’s website, it’s supposed to be the “perfect blend of shimmery blushing tones … for an instant sexy boost with an alluring blushing glow.” The product is vanilla scented. It’s a soft, subtle pink hue on my medium complexion–so on paler skin tones, I would expect it to show up more as a blusher, and on medium or deeper complexions, more as a sheen and highlighter. The texture was fairly soft (but you could feel the sparkle at times), and it applied smoothly, though the finish is quite metallic so it did emphasize pores just slightly. I felt like the luminous finish was distracting enough from that defect, so it wasn’t as noticeable. It wore well for almost eight hours, and it started to look a bit patchy after that. While ULTA’s website said it said it has 12-hour wear, I didn’t see this claim on the brand’s website (or on drugstore.com), so I’m deferring to the brand on wear (or the lack of a particularly long-wearing claim).

    The packaging looks so nice…! Haven’t tried anything from this brand ever…but will surely check out. Thank you!

  2. Very cute with the stilletto pump :-)

  3. Cute shade. I still have never tried anything from Physicians Formula.

  4. Looks like it would be a better highlighter than a blush :)

      I was thinking the same! In fact, I’ve passed up this product several times thinking it wouldn’t be a good blush shade (for me!), but seeing how sheer & glowy it is, I want to pick it up as a highlighter.

    christine, your earrings are always so gorgeous and unique. who makes them and where do you find them? i’m sure you’ve probably answered this question before, but i must have missed it. thanks for all you do!

    • Hi Anne!

      Almost all my earrings these days are from Etsy! :) The ones I’m wearing in this post are from BellaAnelaJewelry (www.etsy.com/shop/BellaAnelaJewelry/). She’s fantastic, and she does custom orders so if you ever see a pair on me that you like but don’t see it in her shop, just ask her. I seriously can’t rave about her shop enough – free shipping, repeat buyer discount, and her turnaround is SO fast – even on custom work, she had designs done in a day, jewelry out within a week or less. Sihaya Designs (http://www.etsy.com/shop/SihayaDesigns) is also fantastic – and bonus, she is a Temptalia reader :) who has always had great customer service, quick turnarounds, and lovely work.
