Worth it Wednesday: Planet Blush.

I was never big into make-up in high school or college. (And by that, I mean: I rarely wore more than mascara and some lip balm.) So, when I entered the working world and needed to look a little more polished, professional, just older - I was at a loss. I'm still pretty lost when I'm in Sephora, but I have figured out one thing: a blush that rocks.


Worth: Around $10 or $11 at Target. (Currently $10.95 on Physician Formula's website.)

Works For: Blush, bronzer, and a little bit of shimmer.

What I Love:
  • It has two sides: an iridescent highlighter on one side and a matte blush on the other side.
  • It's a fabulous blush-slash-bronzer. Period - the color, the texture, everything.
  • It looks natural - even on my sickly pale skin.
  • I love the set up. Super cute and functional.
What I Wish: It has some stuff that isn't so good for a green girl like myself. Namely, parabens. Oh, and talc. Apparently that's bad? Gah. It's hard to be pretty and an environmentalist. (Although, it IS fragrance-free. That means something, right?)

Thank you SO much for all your kind words about my Etsy products on Monday. I want to hug all of you for your encouragement and for even ORDERING things from me! Seriously. Thank you. You mean so much to me.


  1. OK-so now you just need to find and post about the perfect mascara! I have such a hard time finding a good one! :) (Don't you like how I'm telling you what to post about?! LOL!)

  2. Thanks so much for this! It looks adorable!

  3. You read Arduous don't you? I can't specifically think of you mentioning her off hand, but I feel as though you have. Well, either way, she had a good little post about being an environmental girly-girl the other day...and a lot of the comments were great too!

    In case you don't read her already, here's the link:

    I'm not a huge girly-girl and have never been much into make-up either. But I do like to wear it occasionally, and have become a big fan of the physician's formula organic wear line really recently! They've got something similar to this powder(though not in the cute bubble, but in a cute "green looking" container) in the organic line-- and it's completely paraben free, synthetic preservative free, fragrance free... (other "frees" of which I can't think right now) and priced comprably to all their other products.

  5. i've used this and i like it!!! very good buy!

  6. Oh very cool! I need to find one of those!

    I think I've decided to stay pale all year round for one year in an attempt to never age - so the bronzer would be a good thing.

    Thanks for the find!

  7. I'm loving your Operation Happy! It makes me smile - if I had one going I would add "Reading Our Little Apartment's Operation Happy!" :0)

  8. It sounds as though you have found the perfect thing for you! I hope they don't do what a perfume company did to me and remove it from sale just as I found the perfect scent (Tuscany per Donna in case anyone is interested!)

  9. Thanks for the reco! The container looks so cute.

  10. I just quit my job! Stop giving me things to buy, haha!!

  11. Oh noes, I'm sorry I've been such a bad lil bloggy friend/commenter ... I missed you! I'm so glad you're back on twitter btw! YAY! Even though it took me a few days to realize I had to request to follow you - I just thought you weren't commenting so much. DUH! I'm a dork. haha. Anyways, thanks for the recommendation about this blush! I'll be needing some new blush soon and this stuff looks great! I love that it also has a bronzer attached to it! Too cool! And it's cute too! woo!


C'mon, leave a comment. They're the best part!
