Physician’s Formula pH Matchmaker Blush is similar to the pH lipgloss in light pink I reviewed in a few ways: the pH color matching system, the lighting, & I love it. Just like the gloss, this blush was created to be able to transform into the perfect shade for your skin tone within 60 seconds.
The packaging on this was fabulous. The black case is very sturdy & the compartments don’t pop open or flip-flop around like some of my blushes do. I don’t usually use brushes that come with products (what would be the point of buying my own?) but I honestly quite like this one. Its somewhat stiff so it applies the color perfectly. The lights on this one are just as bright as on the gloss but much more usuable to me. If you look on the right side of the mirror you will see the TINIEST of switches to turn it on. Some people might complain about how small the switch is but I think its perfect. If it was big it would pick up excess blush & get in my way.
As you can see, the swatch is beautiful. The silver shimmering dots along the edges add some silver spark to this swatch. The silver dots of shimmer on the blush can be wiped off if you don’t like them which is a plus as well. After the silver is wiped off, its gone. This color is a warm pink with very coral undertones. I was suprised this was “Natural” because normally that’s just a pink. I look much more natural in corals so this was a big bonus.
As for the color changing aspect, I found it lacking. You could visibly SEE my gloss change remember? So I thought this would work along the same lines. I am sad to report I didn’t notice it adjust. Here they are swatched the one on the right after 2 minutes & the one on the left immediately after application. Bummer right?
Well, not really. I love this blush. Its silky & smooth when applied. This color looks gorgeous on & I can build it if I want. Plus, its drugstore afforable which I always appreciate! On top of that, I really do love this packaging. In fact, I like this shade so much I want to check out the other shade in this line available which is called “Rose” when I can.
You can pick these up at your local drugstores for around $12.95 but, as always when I review Physician’s Formula, I recommend waiting for a bargain. CVS often has some amazing deals that will reduce this by around 50% if not more. If you don’t want to wait, I honestly don’t blame you. This shade really is that gorgeous.
