Physicians Formula Review: Bread and Butter Collection
What is Physicians Formula?
Physicians Formula is an iconic makeup and skincare brand that has been producing high performing, good-for-your-skin products at an affordable price for over 80 years. Collections include products for face, lips, eyes and skin. Their products are:
- Made with clean ingredients
- Free of 500+ known skin irritants
- Natural, organic and Earth-friendly
As a blogger, I try A LOT of skincare and makeup. My skin is also on the more sensitive side and I try to choose items that address my skincare concerns. I also worked for a dermatologist for many years so I saw firsthand just how important skincare is. I love that Physicians Formula provides many options in the beauty realm for easy and affordable products that work. And I love how this principle is infused into their makeup line and how they make applying makeup a lot more fun with their themed collections!
Physicians Formula Bread and Butter Collection
The Physicians Formula Bread and Butter Collection is what cottagecore dreams are made of! This limited edition collection is inspired by romance, nostalgia, embracing simpler times and celebrating the sweeter things in life. It includes an array of items that look gorgeous, smell amazing and create a delicate and romantic makeup look. I’m a sucker for pretty packaging and the Bread and Butter Collection definitely hits the mark in all the best ways! It’s just adorable!! To moisturize, soften and condition skin, products are infused with:
- Murumuru Butter
- Tucama Butter
- Cupuaco Butter
- Essential fatty acids
Physicians Formula Bread and Butter Bronzer
First impressions – I LOVE the look of the look of the makeup! The packaging is spot on and has a slight picnic vibe, which I love. The Bread and Butter Bronzer comes in two shades – “Toasty” and “Baked.” The product has a fresh baked smell that is sweet and buttery but not overpowering in the slightest. “Toasty” seems to be the lighter shade of the two so this is the one I tried. It applied and blended well and left a very natural-looking bronze.
I will say that with these products, a little goes a long way! They are very pigmented so you only need a little bit of product. I should also note that all of the compacts come with a small application brush and a mirror – such thoughtful details!
Physicians Formula Let’s Toast Highlighter
The Let’s Toast Highlighter is a dream!! Even in the compact, it has a very pretty and shimmery look to it that includes just the right amount of glow. The champagne glass outline is adorable and it has a sweet and slightly fruity scent that smells like the best champagne! Application is very easy, it blends well and the color looks to be universally flattering. The result is a very natural “glow from within” look. In fact, I had someone stop me just to tell me that I looked like a glowing goddess with my makeup lol!
Physicians Formula Strawberry Jam Blush
The Strawberry Jam Blush might be my favorite of the Bread & Butter Collection! It’s gone viral for a reason 😉 I love cutesy makeup and not only does this look adorable but the color is out of this world gorgeous! It really is the perfect color of blush for spring and summer. It gives off just a hint of pink for a feminine and romantic look. Plus it smells just like strawberries, my favorite fruit! It’s creamy, sweet and smells just like a dream in an understated way.
A little definitely goes a long way here as well but it blends well and I think this color would look great on a variety of skin tones. The only thing is that the strawberry print seems to only be on top and does not go all the way through. Although this blush is amazing, a lot of people seem to have been drawn to it initially for aesthetic of the strawberries. I still really love the color but I just thought I should put that out there so you know what to expect. Plus how cute does it look with my strawberry dress?
Physicians Formula Watermelon Sugar Lip Gloss
The Watermelon Sugar Lip Gloss is another favorite from the Physicians Formula Bread & Butter Collection. This lip gloss comes in three shades – “Sweet,” “Yummy” and “Juicy.” Sweet is a pretty rose pink color (my favorite of the bunch), Yummy is more of a lovely mauve pink and Juicy is a retro looking red-pink shade. Lip gloss has been having a moment lately and I especially love it during the spring and summer for a light and fresh make up look.
The application is easy and it leaves behind a sheer hint of color in a high-shine glossy finish. It smells just like watermelon (another one of my fave scents) and even has a slight watermelon flavor. In my opinion, the lip gloss is not sticky but feels very hydrating! It also lasts quite a while on me before I need to apply. I’ve been wearing it nearly everyday and I have noticed an improvement in how my lips look!
Physicians Formula Review: Overall Thoughts on Bread and Butter Collection
In conclusion, I REALLY love this collection! Previously, I had only tried their Murumuru Butter Lip Cream but seriously, it has been one of my go-to lip products for everyday! The Bread & Butter Collection aesthetically is right up my alley and I do think that the products live up to the theme. They are light, feminine, romantic and create soft and delicate makeup looks. This is definitely the collection if you are looking for pretty everyday makeup for spring and summer.
The only thing that I think this collection is missing is an eye palette. I don’t think eyeshadow is necessarily needed to create a look with this collection as it seems to be more in line with the “no makeup” makeup trend. However, I love wearing eyeshadows so some light pinks or neutrals would have been perfect! I also do wish that the strawberry print on the blush went all the way through but it’s not a deal breaker. The color is still lovely!
Regarding price point, everything is under $16 which is an incredible value for what you’re getting! It just goes to show that you don’t need to spend a lot of money to get high-quality makeup. This collection is available at physiciansformula.com, Walgreens and online at Ulta. Thanks so much for reading my honest Physicians Formula review on the Bread and Butter Collection!
