Swatches of pH Powered Lip Gloss, Bronzer, and Blush

The bronzer and blush are both on the powdery side so you will kick up a bit of product with your brush but they both have a lovely smooth texture and a subtle luminous glow. I think the bronzer is a little yellow for my cool skin even after it “adjusted” but the blush shade was gorgeous. You will notice on the skin swatch above it looks a little more pink, and brighter, than it appears in the pan. I assume that is from the adjustment from my pH level. I wasn’t really able to discern the changes from the environment because frankly things look different in different light so it’s hard to say how it changed.
Now my favourite thing from this new collection is the gloss. Not only did it turn a gorgeous bright pink but wait to you see the little bonus below.
Here is it right after application. (Well as quick as I could be!)

A minute or so later:

After about 5 mins in direct sun:

After 5 mins in indirect natural light. Now check the bonus out…..

This is the stain it left on my lips after I wiped it off. Perfect, even, gorgeous, pigmented pink. This may be the best lip stain I’ve ever used. They say that the gloss has a high performance formula that will last up to 10 hours and I bet you with this stain it may just live up to that. The glossiness will be gone long before that but not the colour. The gloss is also very comfortable to wear and non-sticky.

The bronzer retails for $19.99, Blush $15.99, and the Lip Gloss $12.79. You can find them at your local mass-market store or fine drug store near you that carries Physicians Formula.

    I agree with Tracy. That stain is gorgeous!
