Physicians Formula Palette in Nude Eyes and Nail Polishes
Happy belated New Years!!! I hope everyone had a good one. :) Mine was spent with family. Whenever I spend time with family, it takes me a week to get rejuvenated. :X My nieces and nephew take the energy out of me, but it's all worth it. :)
When Physicians Formula Palette in Nude Eyes came out, I had to get it right away. Not because it's only nude (which that's the only thing I wear), but the cute packaging. Isn't it amazing how packaging can sell people!?!? :X
Where to purchase: drugstore, retailers, online
Price: $11.29 for 0.26 oz/ 7.7 g
Made in USA
Direction on the back:
Now I need to look at the quality of the palette not the initial attraction. I think the colors are gorgeous! I can see myself wearing all those colors on daily basis except for the far left, black. I'll use black but it's seldom. I also like that it comes with direction of the colors on the packaging, but I hardly follow them. :X I tend to go with the flow.
For the swatches...
I was kind of disappointed the colors were so light when I swatch them. Who knows it might be better on the eyes, and I did not use a primer to swatch these. Using a primer might make a difference.
Now for two looks I came out with...
Overall, I'm not blown away with this palette. If I just want for the outer layer (packaging), this is it. Packaging might sell me in the beginning, but you need something more to last a long time. The colors are light and nothing original.
* Physicians Formula; brand I trust.
* Cute packaging.
* Nine colors in one palette.
* Not pigmented.
* Primer helps a little bit.
* Typical colors.
* Nothing spectacular.
* Cannot grab certain colors without grabbing the neighbor colors.
Would repurchase: No, not this color palette. The other Physicians Formula Shimmer Palettes I have are good.

I'm going to end this post with some nail polishes I bought. I bought two Essie polishes.
I also got one OPI polish.
