now... lets take a look inside the packaging!
oh.. quick note here, im not sure if i just got a bad product or not, but when i took my blush out of the box, the bottom part of the plastic packaging had a hole in the middle :S at first i thought it was just because it was stuck too tightly to the box so part of it had pulled off.. but i couldnt find the broken pieces anywhere! so.. it just disappeared? :( not sure :(
however, looking up other people's reviews, i dont think this happens often so i probably just had bad luck :( boo.. oh well, doesnt stop me liking the product inside though!!
i really like this design! there is a little button on the side, so rather than having to pry open the top with your nails.. when you push the button, the top pops open slightly so you just lift the lid.. i hope im making sense here! haha basically, all you have to know is that this product is made for us lazy people :) another small step to make you happy in the morning!
underneath the blush, there is a separate compartment for a mirror and a brush.
close up of the brush
it is cute and i would say its better than most brushes that come with drugstore products, but generally.. i wouldnt be using this to put on my blush everyday. However, for emergency cases when touchups are needed, this can get the job done without being overly scratchy :)
and the brush fits quite nicely in the compartment without touching the mirror or anything :)
although the packaging may seem bulky, its actually not that bad! fits into my hand quite nicely :) the overall product is very appealing with its hot pink metallic case. the plastic is very sturdy making it great to have in your travel makeup bag. the included mirror and brush are also very handy and make great accessories for travelling. plus, the little push-up button makes life much easier ^^
overall, forgetting about the minor flaw (which should be only limited to my specific product), i love the whole design and packaging of this product :)
time for swatches!
my answer? i have to say YES! i mean, just looking at the blush makes me smile :) the cute hearts, the pretty colors, the hot metallic pink packaging!! what more do i have to say?? ;) haha but actually, the product itself makes me happy as well. the color is gorgeous, easily blendable and very flattering. the scent (for me atleast) is quite nice and adds a nice touch when applying the blush.
overall, i am really loving this blush and i think physicians formula did an amazing job creating it! we all need some more smiles in our life and makeup application should never be without smiles :) plus, smiles are 100% free and definitely contagious, so go on.. spread the smile! :D
