Review: Physicians Formula Butter Highlighter in Pearl

Meet the Butter Highlighter, the newest member of Physicians Fomula Butter-family!

If you’ve been following my blog for a while know, you already know how much I love Physicians Fomula Butter line. It all started with the legendary Butter Bronzer (I use the shade Bronzer), which has remained a staple in my every day makeup drawer. Then came the Butter Blush – my favourite colour is Plum Rose. And now, with new shades being added to the bronzer and blush ranges, comes the latest addition – the Butter Highlighter.

The Highlighter was released in five shades – Rose Gold, Pink, Champaign, Iridescent and Pearl, the latter of which is what I picked up. Unlike the bronzer and blush formulas, the Butter Highlighter is actually a cream-to-powder.


Pearl is a bright white highlighter, which I’m not typically drawn to, but the other shades just seemed too dark for my super fair skin. I personally like applying this product either with my fingers to my cheekbones, or packing it on to the eyelid with a brush. The formula is definitely long-wearing, especially on the eyes, and creates the most beautiful white gleam.

Because this highlight is pretty striking, I don’t think I’ll be wearing it much on my cheeks (I’m pale, but not that pale), but I absolutely ADORE this on the lid. In fact, I’ve been playing with it to figure out if there’s a way to incorporate this in to my wedding makeup!

Like all of the other Butter products, I can’t recommend this enough. In fact, I’m hoping to get my hands on the Iridescent shade soon. Until then, this will have to do! A+ Physicians Formula!

  1. I love it on the lid too! I bought it in champagne and I really love it. Definitely thought it was going to be too much when I was first looking at it but it applies beautifully, and I am actually wearing it today.
