Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Illuminating Bronzing Veil in Bronze
Hey all beauty geeks!!! Today I am going to review Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Illuminating Bronzing Veil in Bronze. Yes, another bronzer!!! A long winter season does this to me. I start behaving like it is already summers, so that the impending wait becomes bearable. Apart from dressing up for summers, bronzers are really important to get that glowy tan. And since all the bronzers I have are matte, I picked up this shimmery bronzer for getting the sun-kissed glow.
Let us know more about the product.

My take on Physicians Formula Happy Booster Bronzer:
Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Illuminating Bronzing Veil comes in two shades – Light Bronze and Bronze. However, I have read people posting that there is hardly any difference between the two. Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Illuminating Bronzing Veil in Bronze is a shimmery gold with orange undertones. I bought the bronzer to add a bit of color to my face. However, it is so sheer that all you are left with is a slight golden shimmer. It is nothing more than a golden highlighter, that too with orangey tones that look weird if you go overboard with it. Now, instead of using it as a bronzer, I use this to add a light glow on the face after using a matte bronzer.
The formula is not the only thing I am upset about. Though the heart-shaped pearls look uber-cute, it is really difficult to get any product on the accompanying powder puff or brush. Both fail to pick up any amount of product. The only thing that works is a fluffy kabuki brush to add glow to the face.
Texture: Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Illuminating Bronzing Veil in Bronze has a smooth, but slightly powdery texture. The shimmer is not chunky, rather very fine. It blends nicely and does not look patchy.
Pigmentation: Very very sheer pigmentation. The hand swatch has been swiped some 6-7 times to get the color pay-off.
Staying Power: Stays put for 4-5 hours.
Packaging: This is the only thing that makes it worthy to keep on your vanity table. Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Illuminating Bronzing Veil in Bronze has the prettiest packaging possible. Firstly, the product itself is packaged as hearts. Secondly, it has a circular box packaging in pink. To add to that, the accompanying brush and the puff are also pink.
What I love about Physicians Formula Happy Booster Bronzer:
- Shimmery golden highlight.
- Gives a subtle glow to the skin.
- Smooth texture.
- Blends easily.
- Average lasting power.
- Beautiful packaging.
What I do not love about Physicians Formula Happy Booster Bronzer:
- May make you look too orangey if you go overboard.
- Sheer pigmentation.
- Does not work like a bronzer; adds no color to the face.
- Difficult to get the product on the brush or the compact.
- Expensive for a drugstore bronzer.
- Unavailability in India but may be available on ebay.
Final Impression: Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Illuminating Bronzing Veil in Bronze is a good choice if you are looking for a subtle highlight. However, as a bronzer, it fails miserably. The only silver lining is the pretty packaging.
