Physicians Formula must have had someone just like myself in mind when they designed this Happy Booster Glow and Mood Boosting Illuminating Bronzing Veil ($13.95). I was immediately drawn to the adorable tiny hearts and couldn’t not buy it! As you can see, this bronzing powder is formed in the shape of small light bronze and golden colored hearts.
To apply the product you simply swirl your brush over the hearts to collect a nice dusting of powder. The plastic packaging itself is pretty large so I was a little disappointed by how few hearts there actually are inside. There are only about 18 hearts in the entire thing. Most of the inside of the compact is taken up by a large pink powder puff and a brush.
The powder has a nice, light floral scent to it. The packaging says that the scent is Violet to be exact. It’s not too overwhelming, which is a good thing. The powder does have a fair amount of shimmer to it. I myself wouldn’t use this as an all-over powder veil for that reason. But if you’re looking for a nice subtle glow, then this will work well.
If you’re buying this bronzing veil in the hopes that it will in fact make you happy, then you’ll probably be let down. I have yet to buy one of these Happy Booster products that actually does what the packaging claims. But they always design them so well that you might just be in fact happier by looking at them when you pull them out of storage to use. I mean, who wouldn’t be a tad happier just by looking at these adorable hearts!
Overall this is a nice way to give areas you want to highlight a nice, subtle glow. The powder itself is nice and smooth and easily blends well. The only thing I don’t like about this is the price point. I think 14 bucks is a little steep for a drugstore product of this sort.
