Beauty Road Test: Physician's Formula Matchmaker PH Powered Blush

Physician's Formula's super smart Matchmaker pH Powered Blush will transform itself into the perfect shade for your skin. The wonders of science!
-Lucia Peters,

You know, Bettys, sometimes I marvel at how smart cosmetics and body products have gotten. Would you have ever thought that someone would invent, say, a type of blush that can actually turn itself into the perfect shade for your skin tone as soon as it hits your face? Me neither-but lo and behold, it exists!

PJ told you all how much she loved Physician's Formula's Matchmaker pH Powered Bronzer a month or two ago-and I'm happy to report that I had an equally awesome experience with the bronzer's blush counterpart. Physician's Formula Matchmaker pH Powered Blush ($12.95, and drugstores nationwide) employs two secret ingredients: Fluorescein baked dyes and photochromic powders. These two ingredients react with both the natural pH levels of your skin and the light and environment around you to transform the blush into just the right color for you within 60 seconds of application.

And Bettys? It's like magic. Seriously-when I swept the blush onto my cheeks, I swear I could see it shift oh so subtly until it arrived at the perfect shade for my face. It took me from day to night, too, with a quick touch up later in the day working with the change in light for a more dramatic look. The packaging is also super cute; the compact comes equipped with its own light-up mirror and a mini blush brush, so you can freshen up your look anytime, anywhere. And finally, like all Physican's Formula products, the blush is hypoallergenic, fragrance free, dermatologist approved, and non-comedogenic. Cosmetics that both look good AND are good for you? It's a win-win situation!

Physician's Formula Matchmaker pH Powered Blush is available at, as well as at drugstores nationwide. What are you waiting for? Go out there and make your match!
