Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra-Smoothing Blushes are a new product just in time for spring!
They claim to be infused with 100% Pure Cashmere Extract (whatever that is) for extra softness, Sodium Hyaluronate for smoothing and moisturizing and soft-focus pearl to diffuse and soften fine lines.
It all sounds very fancy but the bottom line is, these are great blushes!
First thing we need to discuss is how cute the packaging is. Physicians Formula is really stepping up their game in recent years with these amazingly cool patterned products. I usually cannot resist them because I want to take photos of them! Is that backwards or what?
The outside of it is a soft brown suede-like material with a cute little “rope” pull to open it. Inside you find the blush that is stamped with various patterned design and colors. Each one has two colors that mix together.
Flip the blush over and you will see a little applicator brush and mirror inside. You open this the same way as the front, but there is no pull here.
Light peach, dark peach, blended together
Natural is a peachy/pink blush. It features a light peach color with a darker “rope” of more shimmery peach. Together they blend nicely to create a light peachy flush. Not overly shimmery or glittery at all and nicely pigmented.
Dark pink, light pink, blended together
Rose features mostly a rose pink with a lighter shimmery pink “rope” in it. The dark pink shade is a very vivid and bright pink. The lighter pink is pale and more of a ballet pink. Together they make a very flattering rosy pink color that isn’t too bright or crazy. A great flushed cheek color.
I like these both and will definitely be adding them to my ever-growing blush wardrobe. I think the packaging and pattern is super pretty, but also the actual blushes are soft, pigmented and quite nice. They have a nice pearly finish without being overly shimmery.
