Physicians Formula Powder Palette Review

Not too long ago, as many of you know, I was involved in a swap with a new found friend of mine from Florida. One of the many items she sent me was the Physicians Formula Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls.

This product instantly caught my attention, as I knew from the shimmering pearls in the compact, it was a highlight powder. Boy was I excited. Actually, excited doesn't really cover it, but I digress. I waited to use it, pushing my already limited patience to the very precipice, and then I dove in!

Firstly, lets look at the packaging; It's just gorgeous. The attention to detail here, with the little pearl set in the center of the lid is just fabulous. It comes encased in sturdy, high shine silver and clear acetate that snaps closed with that oh-so-lovely "click!" that we all know and trust.

Next, the compact actually has two lids. The actual lid, and the product flips out to reveal a decently sized mirror and a very handy brush. I was delighted with this added touch.

The product itself is so flippin' pigmented all you have to do is dab your brush in it and you are good to go for one cheek, another dab for the other and then I'm done! I've had this highlight for well over a month now, and I'm still not wearing any kind of a dent in the convex pearl-shaped dimples. Very much a plus!

All in all, this product is a complete and total "Holy Grail" for me. It's so well packaged, well formulated and well pigmented that I couldn't say one bad thing about it even if I tried.

Modelling the highlight... Swit Swoooo!!! 

Physicians Formula Powder Palette Glow Pearls are translucent and so will compliment all skin types.

What do you think of this product? Have you tried it? Do you think it's going to go on your Beauty Wishlist? 

Drop me a line,

Look Beauty "Cheeky Trio" Review

When I went to Newry and couldn't lay hands on Sleek, I thought my trip to find a decent contour kit had been in vain. Yet, somehow, whatever deity there is up there in the sky smiled upon me and I found the Look Beauty Cheeky Trio kit.

At £8.00 this kit actually undercuts Sleeks offering, but that didn't really matter to me and it still doesn't, as I will find Sleek some time soon and it will be mine!!
