Chef’s Kiss! Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer, Blush and ‘Highlighter’ {Review and Swatches}

If the smell of a tropical island blows your hair back, then the Physicians Formula Butter range is made for you. If you live in South Africa, think Durban or a Pina Colada.

Apart from the scent, these make up products are excellent quality and I am a true fan of The Power of these Three.

It’s difficult for a brown girl like me to find a bronzer, but when I find one, sparks fly. I am currently in a long-term bronzer in Sunkissed. The shade is a medium golden brown with a smooth satin texture. It blends out seamlessly (no helmet heads). It’s long lasting and leaves the skin with a sheen, not a speck of glitter or sparkle in sight.

If you are around my skin tone (for reference I’m a MAC NC40/NC42), you will fall in love at the way it complements your skin tone. It’s warm and golden, not Oompa Loompa orange or a dull neutral brown that can look ashy on brown skin.

Onto blush. The Physicians Butter Blush in shade Nude Silk is a colour that looks boring in the pan, and upon first swatch, you won’t think it will show up on the skin, but it does with minimal building up. It has the signature sheen of the range. Nude Silk is also long lasting.

Physicians Butter ‘Highlighter’

Marketed as a blush the shade in Natural Glow delivers an ethereal glow. It has the same signature texture and sheen and looks great on tan skin. It’s one of the prettiest highlighters I have seen ever.


I have a few Physicians Formula bronzers and blushes and highlighters, and I can attest to the fact that I’ve enjoyed whatever I have tried from the brand.

I know that Physicians Formula is one of the most expensive brands at the drugstore, but these products are worth every cent. You can’t put a price tag on a flawless airbrushed finish. (but we have too!)

Where to buy: Dischem stores or online at


Price: R269 (correct me if I am wrong)


Price: R229.95


Price: 229.95

What do you think of the range? Have you tried it? is it a purchase or pass?

Let’s get the discussion popping in the comments

Until next time,

Stay blessed and beautiful,

Love you lots and lots like Jelly Tots
