Battle of The Blushes: Milani vs. Physicians Formula

I first discovered Physicians Formula a couple of months ago after I started watching Kathleen Lights‘ YouTube channel and I’ve loved the couple of products I’ve gotten from them. One of those products was the Butter Blush in the shade Plum Rose.

There are so many things to love about Physicians Formula, but I think the most important one is the fact that when you open them they smell like the beach. That beachy, coconut, sea smell you connect to all your beach/summer memories from your childhood. That’s what this smells like. I really can’t get better than that, doing your makeup in the morning and getting this feeling that you’re somewhere so much better and not getting ready for your 9-6 job. The formula is really nice and it goes on really nice on the skin. It blends easily, the only thing is that you might need to build it up as it is not very pigmented but this is not a big issue for me as I would rather have a natural looking blush. I mostly fell in love with this blush because of the shade – I had one like this ages ago from Avon that was more of a wine-y shade and not pink or peachy – and I’ve been on the quest for one like that since forever.

The shade is the reason I decided to try the Milani Powder Blush in the shade Romantic Rose. The packaging of this product is gorgeous. The powder has been molded into the shape of a rose, and even though is a drugstore product, the plastic packaging feels really sturdy. Buuuuuuuutttt after raving about the fabulous scent of the Physicians Formula blush, the first time I opened the Milani blush I was taken aback by how fake it smelt. I still use it – not too often, but every once in a while – and when I do, I really feel like I’m putting powdered plastic on my face. I know Physicians Formula is not exactly the most organic, safe brand either, but there is definitely a striking difference between these two products.

My final say is that Physicians Formula Butter Blush wins this round!

  • Thank @pixibeauty for the most beautiful package ♥️ The #pixibeauty #mattelastliquidlip is one of my favorite #mattelipstick formulas so you have no idea how excited I was when Pixi announced they were releasing new shades 🎉 And I was even MORE excited when this showed up at my door. I already owned the original shades so I gifted the extra ones to my friend (and #skincare queen 👑) @mod.young.
•
This formula is so lightweight, and not drying, and really, the only #matteliquidlipstick I use anymore. My favorite shade from this new release HAS to be #BerryBoost. The perfect shade for #fall🍁
•
No se imaginan la felicidad cuando llego este paquetito a mi puerta 😍 Estos labiales líquidos de @pixibeauty son mis favoritos. Vivo enamorada de los seis tonos que lanzaron primero, y ahora han lanzado cinco nuevos tonos más vibrantes y coloridos.
  • Please ignore the disgusting stage of my #glossier #cloudpaints 🙈 But these are my go-to cream blushes (pretty much all the ones I own). I find that cream blushes can give the most natural, flushed look and I love that. The #cloudpaint is the one I have been using the longest but I think the @flowerbeauty #blushbomb color drops are VERY similar (and MORE affordable). My newest addition is the #lilahbeauty divine duo - again, gorgeous shade and amazing formula.

Do you like a cream blush? Or do you prefer a powder blush?

Hablemos de rubores en crema! Me parece que en esta presentación el rubor se puede ver tan natural, así como pretendiendo que hicimos ejercicio pero llevamos tres horas en el sofá. Así. Estos son mis favoritos (todos los que tengo). Si buscan una opción económica les recomiendo el de Flower Beauty. Muy similar al de glossier.

  • Showing you the various stages of this look from the final outcome to my very, very naked face from a couple of weeks ago. This week has been a test to my #confidence. I got a stye(eyelid pimple) on my left eye and I looked like I had been punched (according to me). This meant I couldn’t wear ANY eye makeup. While I preach that #beauty is not dependent on #makeup, I still felt very insecure not being able to put on mascara or eyeliner. We get used to seeing ourselves in a certain way, and when we don’t look like what we’re used to, it’s not necessarily a bad thing - but just different. In my mind, if I can see a “flaw,” everyone else can see it too. When the reality is they’re probably not even paying attention. •
Do you also get up close and personal with your mirror and wonder if others can see that tiny little mark on your cheek?

Mostrándoles este look de hace un par de semanas desde el acabado hasta mi carita bien desnuda. Esta semana me ha salido un orzuelo en el párpado izquierdo lo que significó que no me podía poner #maquillaje en los ojos. Estando acostumbrada a verme CON maquillaje, fue muy extraño verme sin. Cuando estoy en la casa sin planes de ir a ningún lado, nunca me maquillo. Pero cuando voy a la universidad si. Y fue difícil. Porque pensaba que todo el mundo se iba a dar cuenta cuando la realidad es que probablemente ni siquiera estén prestando atención.
  • Nothing like #TextureTuesday and dipping into a brand new pot of @farmacybeauty #GreenClean. I had only tried one other balm before this one - and it hadn’t really been an enjoyable experience. I then got a mini somewhere and I am now the proud mother of this baby.

I love how well this removes my makeup. It is so effective and I find that I don’t have to use a lot of product. Usually I scoop some out and then start grabbing it with my fingers, but I always have some left over. If you’re in the market for a cleanser, I definitely recommend you give this one a chance. It won’t disappoint you!
•
Como les mostré en mis historias, he empezado un tarro nuevo de este bálsamo para desmaquillarse de #farmacybeauty. Es súper efectivo en remover maquillaje e impurezas de la piel. No me reseca la piel para nada. Súper recomendado!
  • Happy #MACMonday featuring my two newest addition to my humble @maccosmetics collection. I picked up two shades of their new #MACPowderKiss formula - Shocking Revelation (the more red/berry), and Burning Love (the deeper shade). I have yet to use them on my lips 👄 but I am very impressed by the formula! Have you tried these yet?
•
Feliz Lunes de #MACCosmetics ♥️Les presento las últimas adiciones a mi humilde colección. Dos labiales de su nueva fórmula #PowderKiss en Shocking Revelation y Burning Love. Ya los probaron?
  • Nothing like having enough time to do a full face of makeup. Honestly, my most relaxing time is picking out what I’m going to use, playing some YouTube, and doing my makeup. Even when I don’t have plans of going anywhere 🙈 there are about 13 products here. How many are there in your #fullfacemakeup routine!?
•
Nada como tener el tiempo para jugar con todo esto. Para mi no hay nada más relajante que escoger que voy a usar, poner YouTube, y maquillarme. Aún cuando no voy para ninguna parte 🙈 aquí hay más o menos 13 productos. Cuantos hay en su rutina?
