Physician’s Formula Powder Palette review and giveaway!

| July 28, 2010 | 100 Comments

Y’all know how much I adore bronzed cheeks..especially in the summer time. For someone who doesn’t wear much on her cheeks, this gorgeous little bronzer works perfectly for me!

You ARE familiar with Physician’s Formula, right? They are one of the few natural/organic drugstore brands in the market. With my acne prone skin acting the way it does, I’ve been taking the paraben-free route lately and my skin does not flare up as much as it normally would. Hollaaa!

You can snag this kid for $13.99 at your favorite drugstore. The mineral glow pearls come in 4 different shades: Translucent Pearl, Beige Pearl, Light Bronze Pearl, Bronze Pearl.

…oh wait, what’s that?

Pshht, y’all know how I feel about beauty rules. I break them. My brown skinned self rocked it. And rocked it well, I might add.

 And for quick touch-ups, the palette has a darling little mirror and brush at the bottom.

I can dig it. 

I know a lot of you gals have been wanting to take baby steps into the natural skincare route but don’t want to spend a lot of money on it.

Need help starting off your collection? One lucky winner will win the following in our Shimmer Bronze giveaway!

-Pearl Palette
-Bronze Booster Shimmer Bronzer

    Oily skin type with light to medium tone. BUT the older I get the more it changes. Seems I can't use heavy duty oil removing cleansers anymore as it causes more oil to produce…yay.

  22. Sunshiney says:

    I have a combo skin type and now a tad bit acne prone on the cheeks. It gets flustering when I randomly break out! My skin color is medium – in the Halley Berry color. :)

    B,I'm with you many rules are made to be broken especially beauty/fashion ones. I've learned to make the most "taboo" things work for me.

  27. Girlfriend says:

  28. Erika says:

    OMG. I love Physicians Formula. Have you tried their gel/creme liners? They are amazing. I bought mine at CVS for like $12.99 or something, but I just saw them at Target for $8.99.

    So, I'm already a PF fan, but I'd love to try out these little goodies.

    My skin type is combination. But this summer it's been a little more on the oily side (though this only happens in the summer/spring/hot months)

    I have light skin, but not supremely pale (some yellow undertones).

  50. taylo292 says:

    For the longest time I thought I had oily acne prone skin because that's what my sister had and I would have breakouts as well. However, after getting into beauty products and researching and talking to professionals I have realized that I don't have acne prone skin. I do have Combination/Oily skin and I was only breaking out because I needed a better cleanser!

    Hi, B~
    My skin tone is medium-fair with plenty of freckles and sun damage (hyper-pigmentation.) My skin type is combination/aging. As in adult acne with some fine lines and crepeiness around my eyes.
    I just tried the PF eco-mascara. I like it because it isn't too hot here, and I dry it with my hair dryer on cool, lol.
    Rock on, sister.
