Physicians Formula: Mineral Wear & Happy Booster

Hi everyone, sorry for the little break I took this week was doing lots of behind the scenes work for lots of exciting things coming up soon.
Today I have a review of the Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Powder and Happy Booster Blush. 

Physicians Formula are a well established brand that are relatively new to Ireland everything is under €20 and the products are amazing quality. 
First I will start with the Mineral Powder, this is a compact powder with a really cool packaging design the powder is on top and can then be lifted up to reveal a mirror and small brush. 

The first day that I wore this was at a wedding and every time it left my bag it was snatched away by other ladies really intrigued by what it was and all the ladies at my table had a little trial of it too! So this is a definite tick for the packaging being desirable and eye catching.
As for the powder I am a huge fan of Mineral foundations and powders. I have combination dry skin so do need a little powder for my t-zone but anything other than mineral dries It all out badly.
This is hands down the best Mineral powder that I have used it was so light when applied but worked for keeping away the oil and added an extra bit of coverage that you get with a mineral powder. I have worn this over a lot of different foundations while testing but the most impressive was wearing it over Estee Lauder Double Wear. I fully expected it to cake on my skin immediately because DW is already drying I tend not to be able to wear any powder with it but this worked like a dream.
It managed to make the DW even more flawless.
I have also worn this alone a few days in the trial and although it isnt marketed as a mineral foundation with a little concealer applied first It does a pretty good job at creating a light daytime base.
This mineral powder gets a massive thumbs up from me and although I got this as a PR sample I will definitely be purchasing another. This retails at €17.90 a bargain for such a quality powder.

The next product that I have is the Happy Booster Blush.
This is another really eye catching product, the packaging is really similar to the mineral powder with the mirror and brush underneath the blush.
The blush is designed with lovely hearts on the product and it has the scent of Violet to make you happy and It really does give you a little boost when you smell it.
The brush that comes with it is surprisingly soft as It looks really stiff. It is perfect for application on the go but I did prefer one of my bigger brushes for applying at home.
The colour of this blush is sort of a mix of highlighter, soft pink and bronzer and even though it sounds like there is a lot going on It all blends together really well and gives a lovely natural flush look.
This is a gorgeous blush that would be at home in anyones make up bag. The happy booster blush retails at €15.90

I now have a physicians formula wishlist that consists of almost every product they make! Anything I have tried from them has been such good quality and has gone over and above my expectations for the price. Physicians Formula are available in Pharmacies Nationwide.
Have you tried any Physicians Formula or do you have a favorite. Let me know in the comments.
