Physicians Formula pH Powered Lip Gloss. The gloss for big kids!

Lipgloss lovers and big kids, you’re going to love this one. Physicians Formula recently put out these pH Matchmaker pH Powered Lip Glosses and ohmigoodness, I can’t get enough of them. Yeah, I know they weren’t the first ones to come out with a lipgloss like this, but this may very well be my favorite.

First, let’s see what PF says about what makes this gloss awesome.

-1st Ever Lip Gloss with pH Power Complex transforms into your perfectly personalized hue.
-Hypoallergenic. Fragrance free. Paraben free. Dermatologist approved.
-Fluorescein Based Dye-senses the pH level of your skin & adjusts within 60 seconds to create your perfect lip color.

Okay, I’ll be honest – I think most of the claims are pretty gimmicky. I don’t think the gloss changes hues because of my pH level. It’ll change colors on a white sheet of paper. The gloss goes on with just a bit of a light pink shade to it and then it changes to a beautiful shade of bright pink. But I don’t think it has anything to do with my pH level. Then again, I’m a skeptic so I could be totally wrong. Ha!

But what’s NOT to love about this gloss? Formula-wise it’s realllly nice. It’s got a non-tacky formula and it feels and looks nice on the lippies.

The 10-hour wear time and dead on. In fact, even when the shine goes away, what you’re left with is a bit of a stain. Which I like! And there’s a mirror on the side…

Which comes in handy when you don’t feel like pulling out your compact.

But let’s get to the best part. This bad boy has a light built-in. With the press of the button…

…a light illuminates.

Awesome, right? And it’s BRIGHT! This lipgloss can easily double as a flashlight. No lie.

I’m impressed. Even though I’ve seen lipglosses like this before but this one rocks because the shade is so complimentary. There’s a Light Pink shade but something tells me that I wouldn’t like it as much as I like this one.

You can get this lippie from drugstores, Ulta and online for $9.99. And yeah, that’s a bit steep for a lipgloss, but considering you get a zombie blocking light on it, I think it’s well worth it. 😉

  • Oh. Em. Gee. I so need that gloss! Great review!

  • Woah! That is some FANCY lipstick! Man that color looks lovely on you, too. I really love berry-typed shades. I’m not a huge lipgloss fan, but boy would I love to pull that out of my purse and find my door-lock at night XD. Thanks for the review!

  • Pretty!!

  • That looks like an awesome gloss.

    You could try mixing it with substances with varying pH such as vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to see if it really does change color. There is a pH indicator that turns pink when things are alkaline so it might be that.

  • This just got on my wishlist!

  • I loved the color . it looks awesome .

    This is so cool! I never knew this product even existed. I rarely use lipsticks bec I’m not sure what color fits me, so I’m a huge lip gloss fan. Imma try this!

    I bought this on the weekend and opened it and tried it in the store (there was no tester). I was soooooooo disappointed. It was a bright pink I thought I’d never, ever wear. Here’s the thing, I’d got a makeover at the store (makeunder, I guess)and the whole look did not flow. The other morning after I got ready for work (I do wear a lot of makeup but I think it’s subtle) and tried the gloss again – awesome! The gloss lasts for a normal amount of time but the colour (stain?) lasts well into the afternoon! I’ve ended up really happy with this gloss, thanks B!

  • I am so glad to have this brought to my attention. If they ever do Tron themed packaging I’ll probably buy cases of it. (And that bright pink looks soooo amazing!)

  • I’ve seen this reviewed elsewhere, but your picture of it in the dark all lit up just sold me on it.

    SO. COOL.

  • This is pretty cool:) I like it:)
    Thanks for sharing:)

  • Wow I need this lipgloss! I’m picking this up tomorrow lol
