If you were to ask me two weeks ago what my favorite blush was I would have definitely gone for this little beauty here. However, Physicians Formula managed to strike again and now I have a new addition to my everyday makeup bag. Meet the cutest blush ever created – the Physicians Formula NUDE Wear in Rose (here). We all know I have a soft spot for pink blushes and when they also add gorgeous healthy glow to the skin I am pretty much sold.
Talking Physicians Formula and especially their new NUDE line, it would be a crime not to start off with the packaging. Let’s just have a minute and appreciate the beautiful faux leather compact and the adorable rose gold bow on top. It’s every girl’s dream, am I right! Who am I trying to fool, I only got the blush for the packaging. The good news, however, is that the product inside definitely didn’t disappoint and it left me absolutely smitten with the first swipe of the brush. More on the formula in a second but the color itself is absolutely stunning. Marketed as no-makeup-makeup-blush, this beauty provides just a light wash of color, whilst still brightening up the complexion and making it radiant and luminous. I have the shade Rose and I adore every single thing about the color. I just sweep my brush across the palette and blend all colors together to get this lovely pastel-y, cool-toned pink with beautiful sheen-y finish. If you are patient enough you could use each of the four shades individually but I personally find that they look best when mixed. Rose is one of those products that instantly perk up the skin and make it look healthy, dewy and fresh. It’s subtle, yet eye catching and if you have warmer skin tone, then the shade Natural should be a perfect match. Definite go have a swatch.
It’s no secret that I love the concept behind the Physians Formula products. I could never say no to a product that promises to be for sensitive skin and which is hypoallergenic, paraben and gluten-free. The NUDE line is obviously no exception and I love the formula of Rose. The blush is buttery and blends beautifully into the skin and the best part is that it doesn’t accentuate my pores, which I find very rare with sheen-y blushes. Yay. In terms of longevity I can’t really fault it – I get some good seven hours wear out of it. Pigmentation wise again – really lovely. Rose is definitely not chalky and could be build up or own, depending what look you’re going for. You can sheer it out or apply a couple of layers for more pop of color. It’s up to you but either way – it looks stunning on the skin. This gem does everything you would want it to do and more. From the packaging to the formula – it rocks!

PS. So sorry for the lack of swatches of this blush but I just couldn’t for the life of me make my camera do justice of the colors.
