Physicians Formula Happy Booster Powder*

One thing I adore is a flawless matte base. However in recent weeks I've been trying to give a fair chance to glowy "happy to be here" skin. It's not easy though, when you're paranoid your foundation is going to slip all over the place because you didn't set it.

At the Cork Meet Up, we were gifted some lovely Physicians Formula goodies in our generous bags that Zoe put together, one of which was the "Happy Booster" Powder. I admit I thought the name was a bit funny, but it only occurred to me one morning last week as I tried it out over my foundation, why it's called Happy Booster. It's because it's a very subtly glowy powder!

I used my Real Techniques Powder Brush to apply it over my Covergirl Outlast 3 in 1 and it left my skin very slightly glowy and radiant looking, while setting the foundation so it didn't move all day. So that's why it's called Happy Booster!

In the pictures, you can see that the powder has a slight glowy quality to it, and that's how it looks on the skin too. It gives you that "happy to be here" glow, without making you look like a disco ball! If you wanted extra glow you could take some highlighter over the high points of your face, but for a work environment, it's plenty by itself, especially coupled with a sheeny blush.

Happy Booster is amazing, you need it in your life!
