Physicians Formula pH Matchmaker pH Powered Lip Gloss Pink

Did you know that Physicians Formula is now sold in Malaysia? Imagine my utter delight when a package from them landed in my postbox!

Name: Physicians Formula pH Matchmaker pH Powered Lip Gloss Pink
Price: RM 50.80 for 3.8 g
Made in: USA

The pH Matchmaker pH Powered Lip Gloss in Pink goes on the palest pink and after 60 seconds, it deepens my lip colour to a fuchsia berry shade; which I have to say isn't the most flattering for my skin tone. It will work for others, but sadly I am not one of those lucky people.

Before - After

The quality of the gloss itself took me by surprise. It isn't as tacky as expected and once the shine wears off, it leaves behind a rich pigment a.k.a. a stain. An extremely long-lasting stain. Put it on, and don't expect to be free of it for the rest of the day.

The full-size mirror comes in handy when I check for particles of food between my teeth or when I touch up the areas where makeup has disintegrated. I haven't found use for the LED light yet but I am sure I will put it to the test one of these days; when I have the need to look for something in the cavernous depths of my bag?

It is a good option for anyone who likes a brush applicator. Perhaps swatch it at Watsons first before you spend the RM 50.80? If you give any of the 3 shades a try, please make your opinions heard below.
