The Physicians Formula Sexy Booster collection for spring 2014 consists of an eye shadow quad in Oh So Sexy, mascara and an eyeliner trio that includes long-wear khol kajal, felt-tip liner marker, and automatic pencil. You may remember from last year, the “Sexy Booster” line is infused with the sexy scent of cocoa extract, vanilla and musk which are supposed to make you feel more sexy as you apply the cosmetics. So does that mean I can hook a boyfriend if I wear this eye shadow? Cross fingers!
“Each product in the alluring Sexy Booster line is infused with a warm vanilla fragrance, “afterglow” illumination and a Sexy-Boosting Formula including clinically tested Androstenol, Cocoa Extract (aka “The Love Chemical”) and ancient aphrodisiac Horny Goatweed to enhance your sexy side!”
The collection includes:
- Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Va Va Voom Volume Mascara
- Physicians Formula Ooh La La Sexy Eyes Trio
The packaging is so upscale for a drugstore product, it could easily be mistaken for Benefit or Too Faced. Fishnets, stilettos and a silver charm adorning the closure, who can resist? There is also a compartment below that houses a foam applicator and a mirror.
The Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Eye Shadow Quad in Oh So Sexy ($10.99) has four shadows; a highlight shade in a shimmery cool icy pale pink, a lid shade in a cool shimmery silvery taupe, a contour shade in a warm shimmery bronze/brown and a warm matte charcoal black.
The shadows apply smoothly but you will definitely need an eye shadow primer. PF says they last 12 hours–I say not without a primer. The texture is smooth and they blend easily. The silver icons are just overspray and will disappear after one use. The shades work for day or night, just add more of the charcoal shade and smoke it out to get more drama. I really like that the charcoal black is not too deep, this makes it less harsh for us over 40 girls. Keep in mind these shades are sheer and soft, that said I wish there was a little more pigment.
PF blushes are also all hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, paraben free and gluten free. Available at drugstores nationwide.
Bottom Line: A great neutral eye shadow quad in upscale packaging at a bargain price. If you like neutral eye shadows that can be worn for day and night check out Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Eye Shadow Quad in Oh So Sexy
