This lipstick is so insanely adorable that I just couldn’t pass it up when I saw it in the drugstore. Physician’s Formula Happy Booster Lipstick is a new addition to their “Happy Booster” cosmetics line, which includes blushes and bronzers already. The lipstick has a triple layer design, with three different shades of rose pink creating the perfect shade. The triple layer design is that of a heart, and it’s so pretty to look at! The overall packaging of this lipstick is also extremely pretty and festive for this time of year with Valentine’s Day coming up. To see photographs, swatches, and my overall review,
With that said, I’m not sure if the plant extracts which mimic the effects of endorphins are responsible for the feeling of happiness when using this, or if it’s just the overall packaging, design, and scent which create a feeling of joy. It’s sort of like when you see your favorite color, or smell the scent of your favorite food, your brain releases endorphins, also known as the “feel good” hormone. The packaging is bright, cheerful, and extremely girly, so when I look at it, I instantly feel like it’s a pick-me-up. Also, the violet scent this lipstick contains is perfect. It’s not too overpowering, but a slight flowery scent that smells relaxing and feminine.
Isn’t it beautiful? The overall color payoff is bright, but soft, and will really flatter every skin tone. I also felt like the formula had a plumping effect on my lips, almost immediately, without any usual stinging or burning sensation. It just felt like the formula tightened and smoothed my lips, making them seem plumper and more healthy.
Overall: If you’re a fan of Valentine’s Day, rose-pink lipstick, and cute packaging, this lipstick is going to win your heart over. The heart design does fade after usage, but the three layers of color still remain to give you dimensional color. The violet scent is not overbearing, but smells really delicious. The formula will leave your lips plump, smooth, and healthy looking with universally flattering color!
