Ooh! Fancy pan and fancy bronzer formula. The latter contains argan oil, and it’s supposed to brighten, smooth and tone.
That’s great and all, but they had me at the color. It’s a medium warm brown with a golden sheen, almost like someone down there are at Physicians Formula HQ poured liquid sunshine on the pan.
If you notice any big flecks of gold glitter the first few times you swirl your brush in it, not to worry. The design on the top is an overspray.
Just to note, this one has a strong white floral scent. Luckily, I like it.
For a natural-looking golden glow, I like to dust this just below my cheekbones using a big fluffy brush, and sometimes I also use it as a transition color in my crease.
Confession: every single time I open this blush I give it a sniff because, my goodness! — it smells delish. Like wild jasmine on a warm summer night…or wild jasmine on a freezing winter night, but the first one sounds better. 🙂
Like the design on the pan of the new bronzer up above, the pattern on this pan is also an overspray (so you might see some big-honkin’ chunks of gold glitter the first few times you use it).
When the overspray’s gone, what’s left is a neutral, mid-toned pink with light reflecting particles. This one creates a lovely youthful glow, and it gets extra credit because it seems to go with everything I wear on my cheeks or lips. This blush easily holds its own with the department store big boys.
I’ve started blending it on the apples of my cheeks after applying the Argan Bronzer. I love that combo so much that I wish the two of them came together in a duo!
This face powder is actually four powders in one, and all of them have a hazy, pearlescent finish, as opposed to a super shiny shimmer, so they’re perfect if you just want a soft cheek glow. You can use the shades individually, or swirled together, as an all-over powder, a highlighter, a blush or a bronzer. Mostly, I use them all swirled together as a highlighter on my upper cheekbones after applying the Argan Blush.
Oh, unlike the Argan Bronzer and Blush, these powders are unscented.
All three of these beauties from Physicians Formula are available now along with the rest of the spring 2015 collection at drugstores, Ulta and physiciansformula.com.
