Physician's Formula Product Reviews

the prettiest drugstore blush

July 6, 2015




I actually had a review request for this a couple weeks back – sorry it’s taken me so long to get around to it! This is Physician’s Formula Ultra Nourishing Argan Wear Blush in Natural, which I’ll shamelessly admit to buying purely for the pretty.

As it is with most Physican’s Formula products, the packaging is super chunky because it also contains a brush and a mirror beneath the blush pan. I personally don’t love this, but I suppose it could be convenient if you like to take your blush with you for touch-ups.


The gold glitter areas are what’s known as “overspray” – a top coat that will come right off with a good swish of a brush. This is a good thing because as pretty as that glitter looks in the pan, it’s quite chunky and not very flattering on skin.


Underneath the glitter, is a beautiful trio of dusty rose, soft pink and bright coral.


Colour-wise, it’s neutral pink with a bit of a luminous finish that kind of reminds me of my Hourglass Ambient Light blush (though this has less of a sheen). On my face, it lived up to its name and gave my cheeks a very natural-looking rosiness, which is exactly what I look for in an everyday blush. If you prefer something cooler, it also comes in Rose Rush which has more of a lavender undertone.


In terms of quality, I’d say it meets my expectations of a drugstore blush and is neither phenomenal nor terrible. It’s not super pigmented or smooth, but it’s also not disappointingly chalky – if you’re on a budget it’ll more than do the trick, especially since its so cute. One last thing to note however is that it’s quite heavily perfumed for some reason, so be warned if you’re sensitive to scents.
