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!
