PHYSICIANS FORMULA Butter Bronzer, Butter Blush and Butter Highlighter Review and Swatches

This is my first time using anything from Physicians Formula and I am pleasantly surprised by how gorgeous the product range is. I decided to share with you the new Butter Bronzer, Blush and Highlighter today as they were the very first products I tried from Physicians Formula, available at London Drugs. These deliciously fragrant powders, in brightly colored packaging, look amazing on skin and the best part is that they all work really well for my normal/dry skin and do not cling to any dry spots, may be because they are infused with Murumuru butter!
For full review and swatches, keep reading!


BUTTER BRONZER in Sunkissed

Bronzers are always a staple in my routine, but its hard to find a shade that is not too dark, not to orange and with just enough sheen to look natural without being sparkly.
The Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer is infused with Murumuru butter and glides on smoothly on skin. It looks silky smooth and looks almost satiny on me. The shade 'Sunkissed' is the perfect shade for me as it gives me just enough glow without making my skin look muddy. I think its a nice warm glow for medium skintones and gives a slightly golden sheen to skin. It is completely non glittery or sparkly which I love.
The packaging includes a mirror and a unique sponge that I couldn't get used to so I use a round fluffy brush to apply it on the high points of my face.
And it smells incredible!





BUTTER BLUSH in Rosy Pink and Vintage Rouge
These natural looking blushes are so soft and smooth on skin, they almost look like second skin. I love the satin-matte finish and the shades Rosy Pink and Vintage Rouge are colors anyone can easily add to their collection.
The shade Rosy Pink is a bright pink that looks very natural on skin and adds a subtle glow. Vintage Rose is more of a everyday blush for me. It reminds me of Tarte's Clay Blush in Paaarty but the Butter Blush formula is a lot more creamy, buttery and non chalky comparatively.
I have tried to layer both shades on my medium skintone and the color builds up nicely and blends seamlessly.

The packaging includes a mirror and dual sided sponge which I do not like at all. I can't seem to apply the blush evenly using the sponge included. It looks much nicer than traditional sponges but I prefer using a blush brush to apply it.





BUTTER HIGHLIGHTER
My favorite products are these Butter Highlighters. They are insane! They sparkle, they reflect light beautifully and they look amazing!! I even applied it on my lids and it looks fantastic.
The shade Pink is a lovely complement to the more satin-matte Butter Blushes above, and Pearl, which is the white sparkle, looks amazing on my T-zone. I love how they look and they lasted me all day!
These highlighters have the same smooth, buttery soft texture and they are a dream to blend on skin. Absolutely love these!




SWATCHES
From the swatches you can feel that the formula is very smooth and evenly pigmented. It applies beautifully on skin and they last me all day. The Butter Blushes fade the fastest but if I layer a little bit of Butter Highlighter in Pink on top, it makes the pinky glow last all day.

Overall, I would recommend the Butter Blush, Butter Highlighter and Butter Bronzer from Physicians Formula. These products are fantastic and they come is a variety of shades to choose from. They did not break me out, nor did they irritate my skin. They keep my skin feeling great and did not cling to drier areas. I love the coconuty, vanilla-ish scent and they are all quite affordable.
