Beautiful Bare Skin Effect. Skin-Glowing Finish. Look Flawless Without Looking Made Up! Enhances Skin’s Natural Glow!
Physicians Formula’s new Nude Wear collection features two Nude Glow blushes–in Rose and Natural. They are said to provide a natural-looking, blushing glow. This review is for Rose, which includes 4 different shades: a light pink, a pinky-coral, a medium pink, and a soft peach.
This blush comes in a dainty box made of nude-colored thick cardboard and faux leather material. It flips open like a book and stays closed via a magnet. The lid has a clear window with a bow on top.
There are 4 different shades in the Rose blush: a light pink, a pinky-coral, a medium pink, and a soft peach. When all mixed together, you get a translucent, soft pink shade that gives off a subtle sheen. If you pick up the 3 darker shades (avoiding the light peach color), you will get a stronger pink on the cheeks.
This blush’s powder formula is extremely soft. It blends into the skin and looks very natural–something that’s difficult for powder blushes to do. And the light quality of the powder imparts a brightening effect on the cheeks.
The “NUDE WEAR” letters embossed on the top of the blush pan are silver, but they’re over-sprayed, so the silver will go away after the first use. Surprisingly, when I swatched the blush before and after the over-spray disappeared (see swatch photo below), there wasn’t much of a difference in the effect. Even after the over-spray was gone, this blush gave a nice subtle “glow” to the skin.
This blush is definitely subtle, but that’s sort of the point of this collection, and the name itself is “Nude” Glow Blush. If you’re looking for a blush that’s fool-proof to wear, and that’s effortless-looking, this is a great choice. It will function as a brightening blush on light skin and as a luminizer on darker skin.
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
If I want minimal makeup or to have a “no makeup” look, I will use this blush by mixing all of the shades together. If I want more color, I will focus my brush on the 3 darker shades.
For $12.99 you get 0.17 ounces (5 grams) of product. This is noticeably more expensive compared to other drugstore blushes, given the amount of product you get. Physicians Formula products are usually on the high end in terms of drugstore prices.
