PF Glow and Mood Boosting Powder

So I bought this product on a whim, I didn't research it. I didn't really hear anyone else talk about it good or bad. I figured what the hell, I could use a mood booster.  It looks really cute too. The packaging was what sucked me in, also CVS was having a big sale with Extra Bucks involved.

So here's what the product promises: Ultra-smooth, perfecting powder in a complementary palette of color blends together to even out skin tone with a flawless radiance.
Vibrant pink heart gives cheeks a healthy pop of color.
Infused with our Happy Boost Blend, featuring Happy Skin and Euphoryl, natural plant extracts which have been shown to promote a feeling of happiness by mimicking the effect of Endorphins and helping protect the skin from environmental stress.
The sweet scent of Violet provides a feeling of joy each time you apply.

To claim that this boosts moods is a very big thing, so does it follow through? No, I don't think so. I wore this powder over my tinted moisturizer for about two weeks, and I didn't notice this making me any happier. The voilet scent they claim that helps boosts moods smells horrible. I don't like the scent of the product at all, but then again I don't usually go around smelling my makeup. 

Now how the products performs this is a translucent powder and works pretty well in setting my makeup. It kept me shine free for about 3 hours which is nice. My makeup lasted all day with this powder. I didn't bother to swatch this because it is a translucent powder. My only one big complaint aside from it not boosting my mood is that it's super glittery and it leaves a white cast on my face. The amount of glitter in the product is crazy. I didn't like wearing this because of the glitter and how it seemed to make my skin look lighter than it is. 


As for the packaging, I love that. I love the heart design on the product itself, very cute. I like how it came in a compact like design. When flipping the product up underneath in the compact there is a mirror and a small flat brush. The brush is completely useless but it's nice that they add one. 

 
Verdict: SO Cute packaging but not so great product inside. It leaves a white cast and a glitter party behind when used. So for $13.95 this is a Pass.  Thank god I bought this on sale!

Yeah I tried this stuff. It's crap. I wouldn't try another PF product, but having oily skin, it's hard for me to wear powders because they always seem to separate and clump in my creases and pores on my face. Nothing worse than looking like my skin is cracking like old paint! Ew!
Sorry we spent the money :)
