Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Blush

Ever since I was introduced to Physicians Formula felt-tip lash booster liner 2 years ago, I became very impressed with their products. I got the lash booster liner because there was a mail-in rebate, making the price much more appealing for a drug-store brand.

With the new year, Physicians Formula is offering a list of products qualified for mail-in rebates. I browsed through their new products and the blush caught my eye immediately.


How can you turn down such cute packaging?

In its package

I haven't tried their blushes before and this is my first one. There are two shades to choose from. This is more dusty pink. The other shade offered is more of a coral, peachy shade.


It opens up like a book. Reminds me of the cute packaging from Benefit's


At the back of the box, it also opens up with a brush

When you first open the box, you would be immediately drawn to the vanilla-scented blush. I always like dessert-scented makeup so I love that added feature. The pigmentation of this shade is quite good. Very smooth and gives me a very natural glow. 

I got this one at Rexall for $19.99. Yes, I know, it is quite deep for a drug-store blush. The mail-in rebate is $7 so it would only cost me $12. 

Few other items which are on the mail-in rebate list also interest me. The Organic Fakeout mascara and the Sexy Booster bronzer are on my watch-out list. I will wait for these to go on sale or become available at Walmart. They also have a new line of BB cream, concealers and powders but they don't get a lot of good reviews so I'm hesitant to try. Have you tried any of the new products from Physicians Formula? What do you recommend?

    1. Their lash booster liner is my absolute favorite. Very precise and I have been using it for 2 years and still hasn't dried out one bit yet. Very impressive. With the current mail-in-rebates, good time to try out their new products. Their prices are not really good considering they are drug-store.

    1. It's awesome that it is vanilla-scented. Always a bonus when they scent great. This one just came out a month ago or so and I have only seen these in a couple of the drug stores in my area. Hope you will get to try it when you have a chance!

  6. Wow, that is a lot for a drugstore blush, but the color is really pretty! I would probably consider buying it just because the packaging and design is just so cute!

    1. If it's the mail-in-rebate, don't think I would get this blush. Totally agree, it is pricey for a drug store blush. The cute packaging is to die for. The bronzer packaging is very cute too.

  7. the packaging is way too cute!!! i have tried a whole lot of their products but now i am tempted to since you say the pigmentation is great... i also need to try that lash booster liner! i never knew there were these mail in rebates - gotta keep my eyes peeled for that

    1. the pigmentation of this one is pretty good, plus the delicious vanilla scent. I love dessert-scented makeup :) The lash booster liner is my absolute favorite. I'm so afraid that it may be discontinued some day. Thinking of stocking up on those. Definitely give those a try but make sure it's the thin felt-tip liner not the thick marker-like one. That one is not good at all.

  8. Thanks for mentioning this on my blog...$7 is a great MIR amount and dusty pink looks like a really wearable color. Will definitely have to keep an eye out for this at Rexall and Shoppers! :)

    1. I wouldn't buy this on full price. It's a drug store blush and definitely not worth the $19 for sure. Will get my eyes out when the new items are on sale and together with the mail-in rebates, would be much better deals :)

  9. The packaging is absolutely incredible! But I definitely think that this blush is too pricey for drug store product!

    1. totally agree. Think the blush is a bit pricey for drug-store. I wouldn't have got it if it's without mail-in-rebates :)

      thanks for popping by!

  10. oh wow!! The packaging and the blush is so pretty...almost too pretty to use! The color looks like it would give such a pretty pink glow. That's also an awesome mail in rebate you scored there!! xoxo, Phoebe

  11. I reviewed the BB cream a few days ago, I know a lot of people say they do not like it, but for me it worked really well! I also have my eye out on that mascara. My favourite time to get the PF products is when they are on sale at SDM during a 20x the points promo, double dipping on the rewards ;)
