The Physicians Formula Nude Wear Collection is a new Spring 2014 launch that includes the new Physicians Formula Nude Wear Glowing Nude Powder which is available in two shade selections.
This is a fragrance-free powder which promises a beautiful bare but glowing skin finish. Apparently the bare skin look is right on trend for Spring and this creates a no makeup look according to Physicians Formula with weightless coverage and a pretty glow.
Take a look!
Physicians Formula Nude Wear Glowing Nude Powder is available in a Light and a Medium shade selection. It comes housed in a nude bow decked square palette. The palette is adorable to say the least and major props to Physicians Formula for always have very cute girlish packaging.
The square palette is a double compartment which the powder featured on the top and the bottom housing a generously sized mirror and brush. As with all my Physicians Formula reviews I’ll rant and rant and rant until they change the brushes on these products! This comes with the standard flat brush which most all of their products come with. It’s scratchy, it sheds, and it isn’t good! I’m sorry but CVS charges nearly $20 for Physicians Formula products and if I’m paying that much I want a soft brush! Granted I rarely use the brush that comes with products like this but I still want a nice brush. Jeez…!
Thank you for letting me rant.
Now inside you’ll find a block of powder that’s has four tiles in graduating shades of color that range from light to dark. I got the Medium shade which has a golden over spray that spells out “Nude Wear”. This over spray dusts away with a single use and the words disappear rather quickly as well. The colors of the powder include a creamy beige, a peachy beige, peach, and a tan which combined create a a soft beige shade. There isn’t a lot of glow-y here so don’t be scared….! No glitter, no shimmer (aside from that over spray) but perhaps a very soft glow that isn’t terribly visible.
The texture is very powdery but buttery as well and velvet-y with a satiny finish. Unfortunately it clings to my drier skin like the devil so it ages my skin considerably if I wear too much of it. Note from the wise user, dust it on, don’t try to use a puff or sponge to wear it all over your face as the consistency is a little too heavy for that. Perhaps in the Summer when my skin is a bit more oily and normal this will be a nice lightweight powder to wear as although sheer it does have a bit of pigment to brighten up skin and even it out just not to conceal major issues.
Physicians Formula Nude Wear Glowing Nude Powder does have the potential to give that nice naked look but the powdery texture could look a bit drying which defeats the purpose of that makeup look. I’d like to revisit this when my skin is less dry and see how it does but right now I’m a little on the fence about it. I must admit I am very disappointed in their prices because even with sales I find their product price point a bit high especially at CVS who charges $15-$16.99 per product. This is worth a try out if you can get it at a decent price perhaps….!
Anyone try it?
