Today I'd like to show you some beautiful products from the Physicians Formula Nude Wear range. These products were launched and sent to me quite some time ago, but with our son so sick and in hospital for 4.5 months I just didn't get a chance to post about them until now. The range includes two Nude Wear Glow Palettes, a Nude Wear Blush and a Nude Wear Touch of Glow Miracle Tool.

Both the palette and the blush come in a compact that has double compartment which houses the powder on top, and underneath the mirror and a brush.

Now, I have done quite few reviews of different Physicians Formula Powders, and I hate to say this, but I still don't like the included brush. It is stiff and not only scratches up the pretty embussed designs of the powders in a flash, they are also not very good for applying the products with a nice even finish. I would so love to see these brushes improved to a softer style, or as I basically never apply makeup on the go, and always use my own brushes anyway, I wouldn't really miss these brushes if they were simply left out, - it could consequently mean that the usual slightly bulky compact could be a tad thinner, which would be nice!! 

Both the Glow Palette and the Blush come in a cute nude palette in a material that I think is supposed to look like leather. They have a metallic box at the top, making them look so pretty and very girlie.

Now onto the actual products... The Nude Wear Glow Palette is intended as an all in one palette. It is made up of four tiles in graduating shades of color that ranging from light to dark, from an off white highlighter and illuminating powder in the top corner, a pink for the blush to give the cheeks a pop of colour, a beige powder to use all over the face, and a bronzer to give you a sun-kissed glow.

The shades are put together with the intension of giving you a barely there nude look with a touch of glow. The palette has a touch of pearlescent shimmer, yet it is very subtle. The actual palette does have Nude Wear written in shimmery texture, which obviously does give a bit more sheen, but this writing does dissappear rather quickly.

Like the Glow Palette, the Physicians Formula Nude Wear Glowing Nude Blush is made up of four squares, but being a blush, it contains just different shades of pink, making it suitable for a variety of skin tones, as you can always focus more on one shade, or leave out on that is too dark or light for your skin tone.

It is easy to apply, and as it has the slightest bit of shimmer although less than the palette. It gives the skin a natural rosy transparent glow, yet it is pigmented enough to build up the colour if you wish.

Finally, the Nude Wear Touch of Glow Pen is an all-in-one tool that can be used as a concealer, highlighter pen, and for genera touch ups. It comes in a pen style with a brush at the end, so it is easy to apply, and blend too.

As it does have the tiniest touch of shimmer, unfortunately I don't find that it is suitable for covering up the bags under my eyes as they are surrounded by beginning lines, and I don't really want to draw attention to them, also because it does have sheer cover. However, I do find it useful to cover minor marks and use as a highlighter on brow bones and on top of the cheeks.

Overall I am impressed with the quality of these products from Physicians Formula, in particularly the Glow Palettes and the Blush.
