Physicians Formula Matchmaker Blush in Natural

I bought this on sale at Shoppers Drug Mart for $12.49 (regular price is around $16). It didn't look like these were selling very well because there were a lot left and it went on sale about a week after they came out.

I wanted to see what the "matchmaker" part was all about and so I went with the one in Natural just in case it didn't really work (it also comes in Rose).

Physicians Formula Matchmaker Blush in Natural

The claim: This blush will 'match' you by reacting to your skin's pH and the lighting.

The Claim: Will also wear for 14 hours. 

Comes with a small brush in the bottom compartment.

Lights off
The packaging is sturdy and light.

Lights on
The lights seem gimmicky but can be useful if you're in a dark space.

Taken 5 minutes after application and exposed to different types of light.

I wore this blush for two days and noticed that it was too bright at first. After a few minutes, it had faded quite a bit (which I assume is the result of it 'matching' me) and then by the end of the day, it was barely noticeable.

It's hard to review this product because it's not meant to work the same way for everyone. The colour definitely changed, which for me was fading to a lighter version of its original colour. In this way, the product worked. However, with a bit of practice, you can make any blush "match" you, if all you're going to do is sheer it out and add a hint of colour.

The lights are cool, but unnecessary, unless you're someone who could benefit from something like this.

Overall, a decent product, but not worth it.

  1. I am still waiting for a 40% off to pick one up to try. Sucks that it didn't work for you. At least you should do the rebate (sticker on packaging, I assume) to get some $ back
