Physicians Formula Happy Booster Mood Boosting Blushes in "Rose" and "Natural"

I'm sure by now you have seen and heard about the Physicians Formula Happy Booster Mood Boosting blushes, but I do think these deserve as much press as they can have.  Talk about adorable - how can that package and product not make you smile? 

Each blush is infused with pearls, the scent of violets and natural plant extracts to help promote the feeling of happiness.  All of the hearts have coordinating, but different shades that end up blending together to create a nice color on the cheek.  As the website says...

Ultra-soft and blendable blushing powder features a fresh and vibrant mix of blushing tones infused with a pop of color to create a healthy glow.

Multi-reflective pearls provide a soft iridescence to highlight contour and add radiance to cheeks.

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.
I don't know about you, but sometimes the packaging or how something looks is enough for me! 
These blushes are nice and pigmented, so as a result use a light hand and you can build up to the color payoff you are looking for.  I use my Bare Escentuals skunk brush to apply these blushes.  They do have a hint of shimmer, but nothing over the top.  I actually go over each blush with the Happy Booster Mood Boosting  Translucent Face Powder as a highlight, and it works really well.  I will say, I can smell the violet fragrance more in the translucent face powder than I can in the blushes.  Its a light floral fragrance...not exactly rose, not tropical...I guess it's violet! 

The swatches above show the hint of shimmer quite well.  The Rose shade has a couple of bright pink hearts that help make it more of a pinkier color than the natural, which has more corals and peach hearts throughout, giving it a warmer shade.  Both are quite beautiful, and I tend to lean towards these each day when I'm ready for my blush. 

I will take pictures of the Translucent face powder, and swatch it as well for you to see in an upcoming post. 

Have you tried these?  Who has tried the bronzers?  I am debating on picking these up, but think I may need them for summer since they don't appear orange.
