First Look: Physicians Formula Butter Palettes Review

    Sponsored by Physicians Formula. All opinions my own.

    It’s probably super obvious, but the Physicians Formula butter formulas are some of my favorite at the drugstore. Their bronzers, blushes and highlighters are so smooth, pigmented and look awesome blended over the skin— even if it’s textured. If you’re as big a fan of the Butter products as I am, or have always been curious about them, you might want to check out the brand’s latest limited edition release that just dropped yesterday!

    The new Limited Edition Butter Collection Palettes are here just in time for the Spring/Summer transition. It includes all of the Butter faves in one place, plus a new Butter Paradise Eau de Toilette that captures that tropical, sweet scent the products have. Available in two versions, Light/Medium and Medium/Deep, they feature the most popular shades— plus a couple exclusive ones!— for glowing skin.

    If you’re unfamiliar with the butter formula, where have you been?! Made with a blend of Murumuru Butter, Cupuacu Butter and Tucuma Butter, it’s packed with essential fatty acids and pro-vitamins to soften, condition and moisturize the skin while adding glow and color to the face. It blends out like a dream and makes the skin look really smooth. As someone who has uneven tone and texture, these are my fave products when I want my complexion to look awesome.

    I’ve reviewed the original Butter Highlighters in the past, and have featured the Butter Bronzer and Blush in several different looks. I will say that in terms of the bronzers, they lean pretty light. For my neutral medium skin, the Medium/Deep palette is most suitable for me. Their “deep” bronzer is dark enough for me to get a natural-looking contour with, and it’s what I use most often as an everyday bronzer. If you have darker skin, the shade would be much more subtle. I can get away with using the “Bronzer” shade just to add a sunkissed glow to the face. The brand has been expanding their shade selection, slowly but surely. Hoping to get more deep shades in the future!

    There is no doubt that these limited edition palettes are going to disappear fast— they’re selling for $14.95 on the brand’s website and will soon be stocked for only $11.88 on Walmart.com. That’s a crazy value for being able to try out so many shades in one box! I feel like it’s important to note that the box you see is what the pans of product themselves are glued into, so it’s a little bulky for travel. But it’s a very pretty display case to keep on your vanity.

    I would definitely suggest picking the palettes online to ensure you can grab it if you don’t see them at your local store, and do it quickly before they’re gone!

    1. I love the Butter Bronzer so I’m definitely interested in these! Such gorgeous colors. I really hope they expand their shade range soon!

    2. I picked 2 of these up today. I chose medium/deep because the deep bronzer really isn’t THAT dark, and I already own the just “bronzer” one in a full size. I also prefer the pink blush in the medium/deep set. One of them I am giving to my stepdaughter. When I got home, I noticed that one of them is misprinted on the inside and has the names of the colors from the light palette. The box says medium/deep, and the shades listed on the back of the box is correct too. It’s just the names under the products themselves that was printed wrong.

    3. I really want to pick this set up, I have been wanting to try the Butter Bronzer formula for a while and this seems like the perfect time to give it a try! The problem is I have gone to at least 5 Walmarts and can’t find it anywhere! The Walmart website lists it as out of stock, do you have any insight as to when it might be officially launching in stores and online? I know it is available at the PF site, but with shipping it will be almost double the price of getting it in store. Thanks in advance!

        • Thanks, I have been! I got an email from PF just now saying they’re almost sold out on their site, so I might cave and just get it through them to make sure I don’t miss out.

    4. I haven’t tried Physician’s Formula before but I love that I can get it at Walmart. I live in a small town and Walmart is one of our only outlets to get makeup at! I really want to check out this whole butter palette!

    5. I haven’t tried any makeup from PF but you make it sound so amazing I may need to go hit up my drugstores and take a looksie!

    6. I need the medium to deep in my collection now !!!
      I own the light butter bronzer, full size pan and use it everyday. But now with my summer tan coming on. I need the deeper shade for sure.
