Review: Physician's Formula Mineral Wear Blush

Hello lovelies!

A while ago I picked up a few items at CVS that were in their big beauty clearance sale, and I will be trying to review all of the items I bought, so first up is the Physician's Formula Mineral Wear Blush in Pink Glow.

Retail: 11.99, drugstores. 

(I just wanted to quickly apologize that I don't have the best pictures for this review- I was in such a rush today that I just snapped a few and carried on.)

As you can see, there's a little 75% off sticker on the corner on the packaging, which meant I only had to pay about $3 for this blush. Yay for CVS beauty clearance sale! 

I've always had a hard time finding a good blush for my skin-tone. I'm suuuper pale, and so I usually use a light cream blush because I feel like they are a bit more sheer than powder blushes, and therefore easier for me to control. However, once in a while I'll pick up a powder blush in hopes that I can make it work for me. 

Sorry for the little smudge on the left side of the blush, when I opened the compact my thumb brushed against the surface.

I've never used a "two-tone" blush before, but now that I have... I think I'm in love. Haha! Seriously! Pink Glow is the perfect shade for my pale skin. It's a gentle peachy-pink that makes my cheeks look soft, with a slightly glowing look.

This blush is pretty pigmented, so I use a really soft brush(this one, to be exact) and a light hand to apply it to the apples of my cheeks. I'm seriously glad that I finally found a powder blush that doesn't look crazy on me! The blush comes in a nice compact that feels pretty sturdy, and has a separate "level" that holds the brush and a nicely sized mirror. Have a look!

The retail price is about $12, and for that price I do wish that it came with a little more product, but since I don't wear blush every day, I think this should last me a pretty decent amount of time. 

If you see this blush on clearance and CVS, definitely pick one up!
