Physicians Formula Nude Wear Glowing Nude Blush in Rose

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!

Have you tried Physicians Formula NUDE Wear Blush in Rose? How do you like it?

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.

Lots of love,

New launches are always intriguing but when their offering is brilliant that’s when obsessions are born. Having said that, I recently got hooked and there is no coming back. Meet my 2014 favorite launch so far – the gorgeous Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in Rio Rush (here). It took me less than a second to completely fall in love with it and the report goes as follows:

I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect bright fuchsia pink shade and when I applied Rio Rush for the first time I knew it was the one. It’s vibrant, it’s bold, it’s fun and unique and the slight cool undertones compliment my skin tone beautifully. It’s summer appropriate and I equally enjoy rocking it during the day or on a night out. Rio Rush is one of those ‘slap on and head out the door’ shades and I adore the way it adds pop of color to my complexion and brightens it up. It is purely brilliant and the luscious, juicy finish is to die for.

Revlon really know what they are doing when it comes to creating spectacular lip formulas, don’t they! Do the incredible Lip Butters ring a bell? Well, this time around they proved they could make fantastic lippies in liquid form as well. The new Moisture Stains have the most unique formula and there isn’t anything I could really compare them to. They are hybrid between lipstick, lip gloss and lip balm. I’m not sure about the stain claims though as the product doesn’t actually stain the lips and it’s not the best in terms of longevity, sadly. Apart from that though the formula is on point. The application is a breeze and the cute little applicator makes everything that much easier. It dispenses the perfect amount of color and it hugs every curl of the lips. The product is extremely moisturizing and I’m sure all fellow dry-lipped ladies will be rather happy. Also you get no awkward fading or bleeding in deferent areas. Score! Oh and one last thing - you literally get full-blown, opaque color is just one swipe, which is rare for liquid lip products.

My final verdict? The Revlon Moisture Stains are a total people pleaser and Rio Rush has completely stolen my heart. Now, where is my wallet, I need to get my mitts on the rest of the stunning 11 shades haha.

Have you tried the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stains before? Do you love the look of Rio Rush as much as I do?

*These babies will hit the stores in the UK in August
