I don’t know about you but I could always use an extra boost of happiness! Now we supposedly can get one from the Physicians Formula Happy Booster Lipstick ($8.99). I’ll admit, I saw the pretty pink box with it’s promise of happiness and I bought it hook, line and sinker. I’m a sucker that way.
And once you open the package and look at the lipstick itself, you can’t help but smile. It’s so cute with two rings of pink color surrounding a tiny heart in the middle. I was kinda sad to even use it and mess up the design.
This “glow and mood boosting lipstick” comes in only two colors; I “heart” Rose and I “heart” Nude. I’m always attracted to pretty pinks so I bought the rose one. I thought it would be a deeper pink color but it’s actually a bright opaque pink. I will admit, the color does look happy on the lips.
According to the outer package, the glow comes from the lipstick’s luminous shine while the mood boosting comes from natural plant extracts shown to promote happiness. I get the glow part because this Happy Booster lipstick is very shiny on it’s own, without any gloss. But unfortunately, I don’t necessarily feel happier when wearing this.
That doesn’t mean that I don’t like the Physician’s Formula Happy Booster Lipstick. I actually think it’s pretty nice. The lipstick is highly pigmented, goes on nice and smooth, and is very glossy. It also has a sweet violet fragrance to it.
The only minor problem I see with this lipstick is the tube itself. At first glance it looks pretty cool but you’ll soon realize that you have to make sure you wind down the lipstick the whole way before replacing the cap. And the cap has to be on a certain way because of the slanted top. Not a biggie to me but could be bothersome to others.
You’ll love this Happy Booster lipstick if you like bright pink opaque lipsticks. It may not physically make you happier but the color alone with brighten your spirits. It’s a perfect little gift for your favorite Valentine this year too!
