Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Glossy Stain Hot Pink

Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Glossy Stain is another drugstore version of the glossy-lip-color/stain (I am only aware of three: Maybelline, L'Oreal and this) available in US drugstore. The gimmick about this particular PF product is that it supposedly contains some pheromone-like substance that would enhance your sex appeal (which explains the heel charm and the lingerie-like accent).
 The overall packaging is a little cheap-looking but I like the slanted wand with a pointy tip, it's very precise for the the gloss-stain's high pigmentation. The gloss stain has a medium to faint sweet scent that reminds me of Playdoh, a texture that's like liquid/gel/paste (in the worst-of-all-worlds kine of way). As a lip gloss, it's wet but not that shiny nor is it moisturizing. As a lipstick, it applies unevenly and shifts outside the lip boundary easily (a dead giveaway for "cheap" lipstick). As a stain it's alright but it's just as drying and uncomfortable.
 Max Factor Ms. Understood, Rimmel Vintage Pink and PF Sexy Booster Hot Pink - To me, this is more of a trashy magenta than hot pink (but at least the stain underneath the wet part is a little lighter).

Overall: The color is gaudy, scent is weird and the wear is extremely uncomfortable (for my lip-skin type, at least) so I hate it. I didn't pay too much for it (7 extra bucks back reward and used the stick-on coupon) so I guess I could give it another try when I am having a great lips day?


  1. when I use a lip stain I always have to apply a lot of balm after, so drying. Except for the josie maran's that feels really comfortable.

    1. The thing is that the lip balm that actually work on me (very emollient or just gel ones) would wash the stain away so I might as well go for a pigmented gloss/lipstick that stay put.

  2. Hm, I wait it to really dry and apply the balm, not very emollient and it feels better. It so uncomfortable to wear it alone :(

    But the color of this one is pretty. I like the heel charm.
