About the brand – Physicians Formula:
From its inception in 1937, Physicians Formula remains steadfast in its pledge to create and manufacture high-quality, hypoallergenic cosmetic and skin care products. It is committed to creating innovative products that meet your specific needs while meeting the more rigorous standards of the cosmetic industry. In fact, many Physicians Formula products are so gentle that they are recommended by allergists, dermatologists and plastic surgeons. The term hypoallergenic is more than just a cosmetic claim for Physicians Formula. It is the basis for every product that is created. Physicians Formula honours this claim through stringent product testing and quality control. In fact, Physicians Formula products are formulated without 132 known irritating ingredients still found in many cosmetics on the market today. However, this doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice fashion for your face. Although every Physicians Formula product is made with all the seriousness needed to produce gentle formulas, it is also created with all the fun and glamour that makes cosmetics the pleasure of women everywhere!
This is my very first purchase from this brand; I was totally sold when I heard about the hypo allergic part. Since I’m totally in love with mauves and nudes when it comes to lip colour, when I saw this palette with four different shades of mauves, I really want to buy it.
The secret to full, plum lips without irritation or painful injections is in this pucker-pluming formulation. Developed with a blend of natural and non-irritating ingredients, the innovative SiLipcone Complex is enriched with cinnamon and ginger extracts to warm the lips, encouraging healthy blood circulation as well as Vitamin B derivative and protein building blocks that enhance collagen production. You’ll feel the effect instantly and with regular use you’ll start to see long-term plumping effect.

Ingredient list was available on the packaging, but I got rid of the packaging long time back. :toothygrin:
My Experience with Physicians Formula Plump Palette Plumping Lip Color – Mauves:
I bought this from “Cosmetics Fragrance Direct” at Canberra DFO around 7-8 months ago. I tried the testers and felt the colours suit me very well. The original price was around $15, but I got it for around $10 as Cosmetics fragrance direct always discount their products. Apart from the mauves palette, they also had a palette of pinks, spices and raisins.
The four colours available in the “mauve” palette are, a light pinky mauve, a darker pinky mauve, a light berry mauve and a dark berry mauve. The compact comes with a built-in mirror and a lip brush. None of these colours have shimmer, reasonably well pigmented, but I wouldn’t call them very well pigmented. The texture is between a lipstick and a gloss, because of this reason; you can just wear this without the need to top it off with a lip gloss. This feels very light on the lips and lasts for about 4 hours if you do not eat or drink. I wouldn’t say my lips looked plumper, but they did look a bit fuller.
The mauves in this palette work well alone or when combined with each other. The package is quite sturdy with a good mirror. I wouldn’t complain about the lip brush either, but it is very difficult to retrieve the brush from the slot provided.
Pros of Physicians Formula Plump Palette Plumping Lip Color – Mauves:
- Lovely mauve colours which are reasonably pigmented.
- The lip colour is quite smooth and glossy.
- Comes with a brush and mirror as a compact – easy to carry and travel with.
- Hypoallergenic and fragrance-free gentle formula.
- Dermatologist tested and approved.
Cons of Physicians Formula Plump Palette Plumping Lip Color – Mauves:
- Lasting power is not very high.
- Brush is difficult to retrieve from the slot.
- Non-availability in India.
