Physicians Formula Products

A few weeks back now the lovely ladies in Publicity Loft sent me on a Physicians Formula package. I have never used Physicians formula but had seen it in my local Mulligans store and was very intrigued. I have heard great things about the brand. Physicians Formula was founded in 1937 and produces high end cosmetics for the American market. They have since launched in many international countries and are proving to be a popular brand. So in my package were the Magic Mosaic Pressed Powder, the Plump Potion and the Smoky Palette. I am going to give you a little insight into each product and let you know my thoughts on each one. Overall as a brand I am really impressed with Physicians Formula 

Physicians Formula Plump Potion – Needle Free Lip Plumping Lipgloss €13.90

I am typically not a fan of lip plumping potions as any I have used in the fact have either had a burning effect on my lips or the scent of peppermint was too strong for me. This Physicians Formula Potion is completely different. It is formulated with a high tech cocktail of non irritating ingredients to transform the lip's appearance, contour, size and colour so they look and feel fuller , smoother and sexier. It has a 3x Plumping Effect:1) Instant Plumping Effect 2) Instant Hydrating & Smoothing Effect 3) Younger, Smoother & Fuller Looking Lips with continued use. I was sceptical at the start but with continued use I am loving this potion. I like to apply it to the lips before I use any other products. So if i am wearing a lipstick I will apply it ontop of the plump potion. If is very moisturising on the lips, it doesn't cause any irritation. It can be worn alone or under other products. For €13.90 it is extremely good value as it is an instant effect, but it also has longevity so with continued use it makes them smoother and fuller. 

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custome Eye Enhancing Shadow in Smoky €15.90

I like the formula of these eyeshadows even though the texture isn’t as creamy as other shadows or brands I have used, it isn’t dry or flaky either. It just doesn’t feel buttery between my fingers. There is very little fall out from these shadows. My brush picks up the shadows easily. I have no issues blending these shadows out. The pigmentation is good. These shadows can be worn wet and dry. I usually wear it dry for the softer natural look. But when I want to intensify the shadow at night, I’ll wear it wet, There is definitely a stark difference between wet and dry. Also, with duraline, these shadows can be worn as a type of eye liner, especially flattering for the lower lash line.

First set is the lightest shades of the palette. In this case, it includes the lightest shade which is a almost-white with hints of grey, a grey shade and a violet shade.

The second set is has the medium shades. The lightest shade of this trio is a silver, followed with a grey and a deep purple.

The dark shades from the last set. There is another silver shade, slightly different for the other grey and silver shades, a deeper purple and a black shade. 

A great overall palette which can be adapted from day to night and very affordable.

Physicians Formula Magic Mosaic Multi Coloured Powder €12,50

This is a fab addition to any make up bag. It is light to dark powder mixed in a palette. You can use colours from one side of the palette or else just sweep the brush lightly over the top and get a mixture of tones. Sweep powder brush over the area of the powder most suited to achieve the desired effect.
Lightly brush powder over face and neck for a natural-looking glow. To accentuate and contour, apply more over cheekbones. For the most even application, be sure to tap excess powder from brush before applying. For best results on dry to very dry skin, apply moisturizer prior to using powder.

I am loving these Physicians Formula products and they are a very reasonable and reputable brand. Physicians Formula is available in selected pharmacies nationwide.
