Physicians Formula - Bronzed Minerals

Just after Christmas (27th Dec) I went on a big of a Christmas sale shop, and one of the things I picked up in TKMaxx (who Wayne Goss from Gossmakeup artistst walked right past the shop!) was this Bronzed Minerals quad by Physicians Formula (PF).  When I saw they had PF I was soooo excited!  I really hoped they'd have the Happy Booster, but yeah I think my sights were set a bit high on that one, but hey, they had this, which is my first PF item - which I'm very happy with :)

They say "Use each shade independently or combine shades for a more sophisticated look. Use lighter shades to highlight eyelid and brow bone, medium shades on eyelid and darker shades in the crease for a contouring effect. Line eyes with the darkest shades for added drama and definition."

It comes with a little brush and sponge tip applicator, and a little mirror.  Physicians Formula are also very proud that there is no talc in their products, they do however, contain parabens (both methylparaben and propylparaben).

My Thoughts

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this, I know PF is really raved about but this was my first exploration into the brand, and they didn't disappoint.  I was quite taken aback by just how massively pigmented their shadows are and soft.  They're beautifully blendable and I really love the colours.

I'm finding that as I'm getting older, I'm starting to lean more towards nude/natural/brown shades.  Don't get me wrong, I'll still wear purple/green etc but just not as often.  The quality of these is easily comparable to high end brands, it's a bit shocking how cheap they are compared to their amazing quality.

All in all, I'm super happy with this and can't wait to try more from Physicians Formula - still dying to try their Happy Booster!
