Physicians Formula @ Watsons

While studying in the United States, I wasn't interested at their local beauty brands.
I always stocked up my skin cares and cosmetics when I came back for holiday, or I would asked my friends to buy when they went back to Hong Kong for holiday.
The reason is because I had an impression that the texture of the Western brands are so much thicker and stronger.
Also, I always thought that the outcome would be more into tanned skin look.
you know that, Asian girls always prefer light skin or fair skin. #hehe
Well, I have to admit that I was wrong until I met the Physicians Formula.

It was such a big surprise to receive such a lovely box when I arrived at the Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Nude Collection Pre-Launch Workshop which exclusively organized by Watsons Malaysia.
Thanks soo much for inviting me!
Wanna know what's inside the box? Well, Read on... :P

It's always good to meet new faces and catch up with old ones at all kind of events, what's even better is that I had Betty with me on that lovely afternoon.
Thank you for being a great companion! :)

Physicians Formula is the #1 brand in America, which targeted to female working adults who seeking for healthy yet glamorous makeup.
It is the only cosmetic brand that provides a healthy, yet glamorous solution for your makeup needs with it's special formulations of:
#1 Hypoallergenic
#2 Dermatologist tested
#3 Developed for sensitive skin
#4 Safe for sensitive eyes & contact lens wearers
#5 Created without any of the 132+ known harsh ingredients found in makeup
Physicians Formula offers a wide range of beauty products from face foundation to lipsticks.
And, all it's cosmetics are suitable for all skin types, even for sensitive skins.

During the workshop, we were treated by the makeup artist, Jil Yong with two different makeup tutorials of #1 Nude makeup and #2 Western makeup.
Nude makeup is more natural approach to beauty looming, with the sun-kissed look, which look like the makeup on Grace.

In order to get a natural sun-kissed look, you just need the 7 products from Physicians Formula:
A: Nude Wear Touch of Glow Foundation
B: Nude Wear Touch of Blur
C: Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio Nude Eyes
D: Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner Nude Collection
E: Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Powder
F: pH Matchmaker pH Powered Lip Gloss

I personally like the correcting powder very much because it's a 3-In-1 powder which includes corrector + primer + powder.
It suits me the most as I do not like to carry too many things with me around.
Besides, I also found their foundation and concealer are much watery than I thought.

Next tutorial makeup on Jennie was the Western makeup, with a bit glam, bold and classic look.

Western makeup can easily achieve by having the simple 5 products from Physicians Formula:
A: Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Spotless Foundation SPF15
B: Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Dark Circle Corrector + Concealer
C: Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner Nude Collection
D: Shimmer Strips Custom Bronzer, Brush & Eye Shadow
E: pH Matchmaker pH Powered Lip Gloss

I was surprised that it's youthful foundation and concealer are as watery as the Nude Wear Touch version since I always thought that the Western cosmetic brands should required thicker coverage.

There are two highlight products from Physicians Formula that you must have in your makeup bag to create nude makeup as well as match with all your wardrobe styles and trends.
One of the product is the Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Makeup Shadow & Liner Nude Collection @ RM63.50, which available in classic nude and warm nude.
This sophisticated and versatile palette includes total 9 nude shades that specially selected by the makeup artist for endless possibilities of:
#1 3 trios = 3 looks with natural, playful and dramatic
#2 Wet & dry = 2 finishes for soft or high impact colour
#3 Shadows & liners = Customized glamour
With a simple set of 9 nude colours, you will be able to create different outlooks to match with your everyday OOTD.


Another must have product in your makeup bag is the Shimmer Strips All-in-1 Custom Nude Palette for Face & Eyes @ RM69.85.
It's a multi-functional face-and-eye palette featuring 12 perfectly coordinated nude hues that can be used individually as eye shadows and liners or blended together as a bronzer, blush or highlighter.
It features pure colour, flawless blending and a micro-smooth pearlescent formula to make skin glow.
Besides, each palette also has a how to "Nude Glam Guide" inside the compact with step-by-step instructions on how to create the complete nude look.
I personally think that it would be the best starter kit for every makeup beginner.
