Happy Booster™ Glow & Mood Boosting Powder

Hello!

I had seen this powder back in early December on some magazine that i cannot remember lol!  I have been keeping an eye on every drugstore for these with no luck.  I do not own any cosmetics from this brand, but this compact attracted me immediately, and i am sure you can figure out why =D  All this time i though this was a BLUSHER, but I guess I was wrong!


Happy Booster™ Glow & Mood Boosting Powder $13.99



According to the PhysiciansFormula website:

Description


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.

Directions:

The Good:

I guess it is a multi-tasking product, offering even complexion and a radiant glow.  I
 like aromatherapy, so this is a plus if the scent is relaxing/happy and not artificial and overwhelming. 
i also like the fact that it can be translucent, a powder or bronzer.
functions as a blush and a bronzer as well when picking up pigment from the colored hearts

The Not So Good:

Not much actually, except the ingredients list.  I know this brand is supposed to be all natural etc, but the most important ingredients in any given priduct are the first 5, and unless i am totally off, the first one is not a very welcoming one.
I do not know whether my skin reacts to talc or not.  I never really cared to read lables.  Recently though, i have been more cautious (except my MAC Studio Fix purchase) about the foundations i buy, since i have been breaking out like crazy!

Either way, I will be buying this comact soon.  I love the packaging and the hearts....now i just have to hide it from my fashion/beauty-forward little girl Jaeden LOL.  As soon as i RUN and get it, i will post pics and swatches....I am hoping i dont break out lol.  The hardest decision will be choosing it as a setting powder or a bronzer =/

Have you ladies tried this product? Brand?
