Pros: the color that i was looking for
Cons: the packaging is too adorned

Hello everybody!

I don’t know why but in spring I decided that I needed frosty pink blush. I have a fair complexion and when I wear fair blusher, my green eyes look brighter. And in general, the pink color is famous for making complexions look fresher and younger.

When I went to a store I had a desire to buy the Dior Rosy Glow blush, but eventually I walked out with the NoUba product, which I really like by the way. Yet still, the desire of having a frosty blusher was with me. And of course, if a girl wants it, she’ll find it! Smile

I bought this product from another beauty store and I was choosing among all the Physician’s Formula blushes, with the most cool-toned and fair base. Price: $5.00

The compact had a cardboard cover, which looked rather bulky at a first sight. I dislike the size of the compact, because I’m more into small packages that don’t take up too much room in my pouch.

Buying this blush, I didn’t have any idea that it’s a mineral cosmetics. I read about it later. Honestly, I don’t even try to find out what mineral cosmetics is and how to use it right. I just don’t care. That’s why my review will be only about this blush.


I know that a lot of girls slobber over the design of the compact. And my question is - are you serious? In comparison with a foundation and a powder by Clarins and Lancome mascara, this product looks childish and cheap! Okay, I won’t compare it with the high-end products, but the NoUba blush costs about the same and looks divine and really stylish. Well, each one to his/her own. But the bow here really freaks me out. I guess I’ll savagely tear it off one day. I've hated bows since childhood.

When I started to photograph this product, I have found out that the compact is double and it also has a brush and a mirror. I was so much into the color that I didn’t even bother looking through the packaging. Honestly, I don’t trust the provided brushes, so I didn’t even try to give this one a try, hence I can’t comment on whether it’s good or bad. But I appreciate the mirror.

The blush is actually a 4 colored palette. This is my first blush product that is colorful. Usually I prefer single-colored products. The lettering was covered with the nicely milled silver shimmer, which faded rather quickly, which is good. I prefer matte textures.

I tried to swatch the shades with my fingers. The second finger has a mixture of all 4 shades; the index finger shows the lower row only.

I’ll explain why I decided to highlight the lower row. When it feels like there isn’t enough of color for me, I pick up the shades only from the lower row with my brush and apply over my blush.

This was the first time I met the brand. And the packaging didn’t seem to be serious, you know. Let alone the Taiwan manufacturer, so I had a biased opinion about it at first. And how wrong I was!

The product is okay: it doesn’t dust, apply evenly and it has moderate pigmentation that I like, because it’s always so easy to overdo overly pigmented formulas. The color doesn’t fall out during the day (unlike the Dior blush) and stays on for a long time. I apply it only once a day and don’t need to touch up.

This fact is too important for me - I want my blush to stay on even if I spritz my skin with thermal water. I have some products which crease and fall out once I apply a little bit of thermal water.

All in all, guys, I’m delighted with this blush: the shade is cool-toned and frosty. I have been looking for it for so long. The texture is amazing and really matte.

I use it only for my own makeup and I opt for the NoUba product for my job.

Here are the swatches for comparison (As for me, I never trust swatches. It’s better to see-apply and decide yourself).

1 - NoUba #55, 2 - BC #22, 3 - PF blush.

Do I recommend this Physician's Formula Nude Wear Glowing Nude Blush? If you have a fair complexion, then yes! This light shade seems super refreshing on my skin.

Will I repurchase? No, this packaging drives me mad and I’m sure that there are definitely swaps for this shade.

I’m glad if you found my review informative.
