Physicians Formula’s Nude Wear Touch of Glow allows a perfect look without looking make up; can be used as a highlighter, concealer or all over touch up tool.
Physicians Formula’s new Nude Wear collection features a multi-purpose product said to function as a highlighter, concealer, or all-over touch-up tool. Keep reading for my thoughts on the Nude Wear Nude Glow Touch Of Glow.
This product comes in a tube wrapped in faux leather. The cap snaps on and is decorated with a metallic bow. The base twists and pushes product into the brush applicator.
The Nude Wear Nude Glow Touch of Glow is a liquid-formula product that acts as a luminizer. Although the product description says this can act as a concealer and highlighter, I think the more accurate description of the Touch Of Glow’s capabilities is as a brightener.
The formula is very thin. The color of the product is actually on the darker side (slightly deeper than my NC20 skin), but the pigmentation is so sheer that the color doesn’t really have any effect. The liquid contains extremely small luminizing particles that bring a subtle light to the skin.
I use this mainly under the eyes after applying concealer and in the inner corners. I also like to use it under the brow bone and on the face to luminize areas like the cheeks and the bridge of the nose. The “highlighting” effect you’ll get is very subtle, so don’t expect this product to take the place of your normal highlighter. But if you’re looking for something that looks like your natural skin (say, if you’re going for a no-makeup look or are going to exercise and don’t want a lot of makeup on), this is a wonderful product.
I know some people will wonder if this is a replacement for YSL’s Touche Eclat. I’d say it’s not a replacement because YSL’s product packs a stronger punch, but it’s a pretty darn good alternative if you’re not looking to spend $40.00 on a luminizer.
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
This product’s thin formula blends effortlessly into your skin. It’s almost impossible to use too much product and, in fact, you should pat it into the skin delicately to preserve the subtle finish it has. Sometimes twist pens are a real hassle to get product out of, but I haven’t had any problems with this pen so far. Plenty of product comes out of the brush for both of my under-eye areas with just two twists of the pen.
For $12.99 you get 0.14 ounces (4 grams) of product. There aren’t many drugstore luminizers out there. L’Oreal’s Magic Lumi Concealer and Maybelline’s DreamLumi Touch Highlighting Concealer are both 0.05 fl oz. L’Oreal’s and Physicians Formula’s lumnizers cost about the same while Maybelline’s is about $4 cheaper.
