I wanted a Nude Wear blush, the Translucent Pearls, a Cashmere blush, and a Happy Booster highlighter. Well, I got two out of the four things I wanted.

Mineral Glow Pearls in Translucent Pearls
I love this. I had heard so many people rave about this product via Youtube, so I knew I had to try this. I was a little weary when one of my favorite Youtubers said she wasn't a fan of this product recently because it came off as a silver highlighter, but because so many other people loved it, I bought it.
I don't have many highlighters, so I don't have much to compare it to, but I think this is my favorite highlighter I own. I like that you can tell there's a little brightening on the high points of my cheeks. The other highlighters I own come off more natural, which I think is a good thing, but I like this when I feel like my faces needs a little more oomph.
Nude Wear Bronzer
When I looked at the bronzer, I just knew the darker shade in the box would show up on my skin. I was so wrong. When I swirled my brush in the product and transferred it to my skin, I saw absolutely nothing. So I went in again and repeated the process. I repeated the process a good three times and I still felt like I couldn't see diddly squat.
Also, I don't know if I'm using the wrong type of brush or if it's just the formulation, but it kicked up a lot of product.
Well this was much like the bronzer, a total disappointment. I swirled my brush in the product a good three times and I barely see anything on my cheeks. It shows up more on my cheeks than the bronzer, but it's no where near the kind of pigmentation I like. I know, I know, "It has nude in the name, what do you expect Ashley?" I don't know what I expected, but I know it wasn't this. Much like the bronzer my brush kicked up a lot of product.
Even though I am not a fan with the bronzer or the blush, I am determined to make them work for me. I'm going to play around the with bronzer more and I might try using it as a blush in the summer to give me glowy cheeks. We'll see.
Have you tried any of these products for Physicians Formula?
