For most girls anywhere, when it comes to makeup, it’s all about the highlighter. When the light hits those high plains of your face… girlllll it’s a fine moment. There are so many out there now on the market within a variety of price ranges and household names; Maybelline, Rimmel, Anastasia Beverly Hills and Kat Von D. One that I found on my travels around the United States this summer however, is a complete game changer. It is the ‘Nude Wear Touch of Glow’ palette by drug store brand Physician’s Formula. I bought mine from a local Walmart so it is easily accessible to purchase for my American friends across the pond; for everyone else, it means international shipping but I assure it is totally worth it! Here are a few reasons why:
The first reason as to why this is an essential item in your make up kit is because of its cute packaging. I mean seriously guys; I’m not a girly person, but this pink case and bow is ADORABLE. It’s cute, it’s pretty; it looks appealing to buy from the offset! Compared to most palettes it is a lot smaller, meaning you can take it on the go with you. I’m not saying you can’t take other palettes with you, but who is seriously going to work round with an Anastasia Beverly Hills’ ‘Glow Palette’ in their bag? Not this girl! The packaging is sturdy but not heavy, meaning that the product inside is never going to crack or break and spill everywhere. Result!
Secondly, the application of this product is so easy. Simply swish your brush over all four areas of the palette or just one if you so desire. It literally takes 1-2 strokes and you can already see the results. For me that is a big deal; I can’t stand any of these products that takes a thousand application strokes and THEN the horrid task of obscene blending. With the ‘Touch of Glow’ palette, it is made much more simple and easier, which just honestly makes a small aspect of our lives much simpler.
(Apologies for the photo quality; could not find good lighting in my house!)
The final and main reason as to why this product is an essential and is worth the shipping cost is because of its pigmentation. To say it is a cheaper product in the market at $14.95, it is DIVINE. The two bronzers shades provide a warm yet natural glow to your face, and paired with the cheeky blusher it makes your cheeks pop a rosy shade of pink. Most importantly though, in this palette those aspects are not as essential. For me, the highlighter is what I live for. I mean seriously… HAVE YOU SEEN HOW PRETTY THIS IS?!
*pause for a moment* #prayforShannon #thishighlighterthough. These pictures don’t do it justice. It’s super pigmented, it gives off the best glow and when the light hits those high plains of your face… my lord it is a beautiful moment. Even if you didn’t use the other aspects to this palette, at least buy and use it just for this highlighter. Please. It’ll change your life.
As I said earlier, for my American friendlings, this product is available at most drug stores and I purchased it from a local Walmart. For $14.95, you literally cannot argue that it is a bargain; you’re getting two bronzers, a blush and a highlighter for under $15! For the rest of the world, that’s around £12-13. Still a bargain nonetheless! I use this palette every day and honestly I can say it has never disappointed me, and it has lasted me since June so it is very durable! The whole Physician’s Formula range is very practical and affordable and I would highly recommend it for anyone wanting to try a new brand that bridges the gap between high-end and drug store makeup.
