Physicians Formula Sezy Booster Sexy Glow Blush and Bronzer

Physicians Formula Sexy Booster collection for spring 2013 includes two new Sexy Glow Blushes and Sexy Glow Bronzers. And I DARE you to resist this packaging!

Sexy Glow Blushes come in Natural and Rose and the bronzers in Light Bronzer and Bronzer. So what makes this stuff so sexy? According to PF, they include a seductive fragrance and pheromone-mimicking ingredients. Get this, one of them is called…HORNY GOATWEED. I am not kidding that’s what the press release says. So what on earth is that? It’s derived from ancient Chinese medicine and claims to be an aphrodisiac for men and women. It also contains vanilla and musk, as well as cocoa extract (the “love chemical”) and Androstadienone and Muricine Aglycone, which are clinically tested pheromone-like ingredients. They are also all hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, paraben free and gluten free.

Hmmm I don’t know about all that, but did I mention how cute they are? ­čśë

Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Sexy Glow Blush and Bronzer Swatches
Natural, Rose, Light Bronzer

Natural is a peachy pink shimmery shade.

Rose is a classic pink shimmery shade.

Light Bronzer is a pale golden bronzer shade.

The blushes come with two shades (the shoe is a different shade) but these are all blended together, since they will wind up that way eventually anyway. They aren’t SUPER pigmented, but softer, which is kind of nice. You can build them up. They are very shimmery and create a blush/highlighter effect at once.

The Light Bronzer is a really great shade for fair ladies (or men!). It’s also duo-toned and together it creates a perfect shade for fair folks. Warm, but not too warm and definitely not too deep, orange or brown.

Overall: Damn this cute packaging. It’s so cute that I was sent Light Bronzer and Rose for review, but I had to go out and purchase Natural because I wanted them both. Aside from that the blushes are nice, soft shades, but they are super shimmery. The bronzer is a good one for lighter skin tones, but again, very shimmery. I honestly don’t care a lick about all that pheromone stuff, if it’s true or not. I choose makeup because I like the shades and quality and packaging, not for all this other stuff, which seems a bit gimmicky to me. Horny Goatweed… ­čÖé

Are these calling your name? How do you feel about the claims this makes and does it affect your decision to buy them (or not)?
