Physicians Formula #InstaReady Multi-Finish Eyeshadow – Natural Nude

It’s a good thing that Physicians Formula is on sale so often at CVS because I probably wouldn’t have purchased this palette otherwise. Don’t get me wrong, I love Physicians Formula. In fact, they’re my favorite drugstore brand but, let’s be honest, their products are pricey. The new Physicians Formula #InstaReady Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palettes are $13.29 each which is a lot. I chose the more neutral Nature Nude to try.

bareMinerals Cognac: Trying To Find A Dupe

bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe, Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips All-in-1 Custom Nude Palette for Face & Eyes Natural Nude

I was doing a routine cleanup of my memory cards and stumbled across a couple of forgotten comparison/swatch pics. I’m pretty sure these were taken sometime during the summer because my skin in the swatch photo looks darker than it does currently.

Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Highlight & Contour Palette – Matte Sculpting

Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Highlight & Contour Palette – Matte Sculpting

I picked up the new Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Highlight & Contour Palette in Matte Sculpting over the weekend. With its hefty $16.29 (9 g/0.30 oz) price tag at CVS, it’s perhaps the single most expensive makeup item I’ve every purchased from the drugstore. Thankfully, I was able to use coupons and store rewards to bring the cost down to something I could more easily stomach.

CVS Haul

My local CVS finally reset their Physicians Formula display. I’ve been stalking the store these past few weeks for the new 2017 products, the new matte and shimmer Highlight & Contour Palettes in particular, and my waiting finally paid off. But, woah, are they pricey. I thought the Physicians Formula Argan Oil which I love was expensive at $15.99 but these new palettes are $16.29 apiece. Luckily I had coupons and ExtraBucks that helped bring my total down.
