    Pros:

    -There's minimal shimmer in this blush, it translates to more of a glow on your cheeks so you look very fresh
    -This blush is very travel friendly since it has a large mirror and a little brush
    -I absolutely love the shade of peach this blush turns out to be, I usually find some peach blushes to lean too brown, but this one is a very true peach that will flatter many skin tones!
    -The texture of "Blushing Peach" is super smooth, not at all chalky
    -Because its so smooth, this blush blends like a dream
    -Though the chunky plastic packaging isn't the prettiest thing to look at, it definitely protects the product really well (mine has hit the floor a few time and hasn't shattered or even chipped once)!

    Cons:

    -This blush usually retails for $10.95 (I got mine during a sale) which in my opinion is just WAY too much for something from the drugstore
    -I think the silver and plastic packaging is pretty darn ugly, it just doesn't look cute when sitting on your vanity
    -I don't like that you have to push the little button to get the blush to open, sometimes it gets stuck and its just a hassle
    -The blush itself has a very old school "cosmetic-y" smell to it (can't smell anything when its actually on your cheeks)
    -The way Physicians Formula packages their products in stores is really flawed, there's a little window cut out on the box that has no barrier between it and the actual blush, so the likelihood that you're going to be able to find one that's not already all banged up is very slim
    -The packaging is pretty deceiving, it looks like you're getting a ton of product, but all that extra room is actually just the little compartment for the brush
    -The "Blushing Peach" shade is fairly sheer, you really need to swirl your brush around to grab enough color and even then it still requires some building on the cheeks
    -The lasting power isn't that great, you'll get a solid 4-5 hours of wear before things start to fade
    -I personally don't care for the packaging, silver products always look cheap/show wear and tear a lot faster (go for something classic like black Physicians Formula!)
    -The little brush that comes in the compartment is quite scratchy, but I guess it could work if you were in a pinch
    -There's little holes in the bottom of the compartment, if you use the brush that comes with the blush and put it back in the compartment some product will go through the holes (not the best if you keep this in your purse or makeup bag)

    Overall:

    The Physicians Formula Powder Palette Multi-Colored Blush in "Blushing Peach" has become a daily staple for me, it goes with pretty much every look and gives my face a nice glow! I would say pick this blush up only if you can grab it during a sale (I'm talking like 40% off Physicians Formula) otherwise I think you're getting ripped off by a drugstore product. I only paid $1.00 for this blush back when there was a big Physicians Formula sale going on at CVS and I had a bunch of coupons, but if you're even thinking about shelling out at least $10.95 on a drugstore product, you mine as well spend another $10.00 and just grab something high end like a MAC blush since they're much more pigmented and long lasting!
