The Cutest Nude Palette on the Block

Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner in Nude Eyes

Move over Urban Decay Naked, Naked 2, the Balm Nude Tude (second cutest packaging award)
, and NYX Nude on Nude, there is a new Nude palette on the block and it is the cutest thing EVER! It's obviously a smaller size than some of the aforementioned palletes, but still it wins the cutest award. Plus, the shadows rock. Their whole new line has the cutest packaging including a jeans design with a zipper (casual), faux snake skin with a button (flash), and a shiny black case with a jewel (smokey). 

This retails around $10-$11. Physican's Formula is one of the more expensive drugstore brands, but I absolutely love their products. I couldn't pass this up even though it was full price. Plus you get 9 amazing shadows and even though they aren't the largest of shadows, when was the last time you ever actually hit pan on an eyeshadow?  

The packaging gives you instructions on how to create three different looks and has the shadows paired in groups of three, so this is very user friendly if you aren't that comfortable mixing and playing with shadows. It takes all the guess work out of it. There was also a set of three eyeliners 


This is one of those palettes where the pictures just don't do it justice. I can't stop looking at these on my arm. They have a really nice pigment and sheen to them and are super creamy. These look so much better on my HD camera screen than my computer. So you'll have to trust me on the color of these. :) These swatches above are without primer. These all have shimmer except for the darkest shadow seems to be more matte. There are also at least four shades that are dupes or near dupes for Naked shades Sin, Sidecar, Hustle, and Creep.

I really like this palette, but there are some negative reviews out there saying these are too sheer. But they're nudes! So its not like you're going to get an insane dramatic dark color. I would recommend using primer with these. I used Urban Decay's primer potion.  These four lighter colors can be used more as a highlighter too. I think they're all just gorgeous. 

Here are the designs of all the shimmer strips in this line:

Yours in Beauty (and Nudes), 



  1. Ooh that looks good. Shame they don't do it in the UK though. :(

  2. I like them, like you said, nude colors are not really meant to be that intense. I have the casual palette that physicians formula sent me to review, and I like it, but I am waiting till payday to pick up the ned one, because I am absolutely in love with it!!!

  3. Those look really pretty! It's more than I would want to spend on eyeshadow so let me know if there are any affordable dupes!
