I haven’t tried much from Physician’s Formula in the past. After trying their Butter collection goodies, I’m kinda kicking myself that it’s taken me so long.
I was instantly attracted to these drugstore face goodies as soon as I saw them, since a) the word “butter”, and b) the packaging is super cute. This collection consists of three highlighters, a bronzer, and a blush, all of which smell amazing, apply like a dream, and are so creamy and pigmented that they’ll soon become your new favourite makeup items.
Since I’m heading to Miami next week, these products have got me in the mood early (especially since it’s starting to feel like fall here in Winnipeg). These products are infused with a blend of Murumuru butter, Cupuacu butter, and Tacuma butter from the Amazon. Each item also contains essential fatty acids and pro-vitamins that soften, condition, and moisturize skin.
As mentioned, the collection contains bronzers, blushes, and highlighters. The bronzer (C$19.99 at London Drugs), comes in four shades: Bronzer, Light Bronzer, Sunkissed Bronzer, and Deep Bronzer. I got the shade Sunkissed, which is an amazing matte bronzer that really gives you that beautiful sun-kissed glow. These products help to moisturize your skin, but the thing I couldn’t help but notice right away was how soft the actual product is. Because of that, the powder just glides on your face, blending perfectly and leaving you with the perfect beachy glow. I have a lot of bronzers in my collection already but I’ll definitely be rotating this one in shortly (I’m almost done my Stila bronzer, so I’m waiting to toss that before digging into another one on the regular).
The Butter blush (C$15.99) comes in four shades: Natural Glow (peach), Plum Rose (plum), Vintage Rouge (coral), and Rosy Pink (bubblegum pink). I have Rosy Pink and absolutely love this pink shade since it provides you with that perfect blushing look. Like the bronzer, the blush is so buttery and creamy and just glides on your cheeks leaving you with the perfect flush. Thanks for the buttery formula it doesn’t go on patchy or chalky, it’s smooth like buttah and so easy and versatile to wear as well.
Both the blush and bronzer flip open at the bottom to reveal a mirror and a brush, which to be honest, isn’t the most usable brush (I would call it more like a sponge). The mirror is nice, however, because it has this extra layer, it does make the products to be quite bulky. I want to say throw them in your bag for your tropical vacay, but unfortunately it will take up probably half of your makeup bag.
Finally, for the highlighters (C$15.99), these are available in five shades: Rose Gold, Pink, Champagne, Pearl, and Iridescence. I have the colours Rose Gold, Champagne, and Pearl, and find all of them so flattering and glowy that I have to say that these are even better than some of my luxury highlighters. Out of the three, I love the silver one the most since I find it’s the most flattering on my skin tone. Like the other products, these are cream to powder, and they contain anti-aging peptides and skin-conditioning ingredients that offer hydration. The formula also has peptides, mica, and natural silica, which impart lightweight, soft-focus pigments that smooth the texture of skin for a beautiful glow.
If you couldn’t tell already, but I kinda absolutely love this collection. Along from the cream-to-powder formula which melt into the skin, they also smell amazing, like like shortbread. They are all on the pricier side for drugstore products, but if you can spot them on sale, definitely pick up some items from the line, preferably one of each!
Have you tried anything from the Physician’s Formula Butter line?
