Innovative glossy lacquer + stain hybrid formula delivers irresistible, richly pigmented color in an intensely glossy finish combined with Physicians Formula Sexy Boost Blend for the ultimate pout-enhancing effect. The result is full, voluptuous, SEXY lips! High-impact color takes long-wear and high-performance to a sexy new level, that lasts up to 12 hours.

Sexy Boosting Formula: infused with the scent of warm vanilla, “afterglow” illumination and pheromone-mimicking ingredients including clinically tested Androstadienone, Cocoa Extract (aka “the Love Chemical”) and ancient aphrodisiac Horny Goatweed to enhance your sexy side.

Physicians Formula’s new line of Sexy Booster makeup items come just in time for Valentine’s Day this year. This review is for the Sexy Booster Sexy Glow Glossy Stain. This lip product comes in two colors. This review is for the color Red, which is a bold, classic red color.

Packaging: 9.25/10

This lip product comes in a rectangular, clear, plastic tube with a red, twist-off cap. It contains a tear-drop-shaped doe-foot applicator and is decorated with a high-heel charm.

Quality: 9.75/10

Red is a vibrant, bold, classic red shade without shimmer. The color is intense and opaque. If you want to tone it down, you can apply it with a light hand and then dab the product off with a tissue. It leaves a slightly glossy finish to the lips.

The formula is smooth and creamy while still being thin. It feels light on the lips and isn’t sticky at all. The gloss does have a sweet smell to it, but luckily the scent doesn’t linger too long after application.

The gloss has great staying power and leaves a healthy stain behind on the lips. What’s even better, it stains the lips without drying them out. The gloss locks in moisture (despite the presence of alcohol in the ingredients) and the color wears off pretty evenly.

All the “pheromone-mimicking” claims are bogus, gimmicky, and cheapen the quality of an otherwise great lip stain and gloss.

Ease of Use: 9/10

The color is strong, so you need to take more time to be precise in application. The tear-drop-shaped applicator helps with this. The formula glides onto the lips smoothly.

Price: 7/10

For around $10.00 you get 0.2 ounces (6 ml) of product. You get less than your average amount of product for a higher-than-average drugstore price.
