Here is an addendum to my Rosy Nude Forecast! Just in the past few weeks more “Rosy Nude” shades or items that are similar in shade to a “rosy nude” have hit the drugstore shelves! I am going to bring you some more items from my Trend Forecast, because I don’t want you to miss out on some seriously pretty products out there. These drugstore items are gorgeous.
Don’t miss this, Revlon has brought back their infamous PhotoReady SkinlightsTM collection. This was a huge hit for them in the 1990’s, illuminating women’s faces all over the world. Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights™ Face Illuminator, once a cult favorite by top makeup artists and women everywhere, is now a part of the innovative PhotoReady collection. It means the lightweight, sheer illuminator contains photochromatic pigments that bend and reflect light to help diffuse and minimize flaws as well as light-capturing crystals to bring new luminous dimension to skin. The new formula banishes dullness and instantly brightens skin for a lit-from-within look. Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights™ Face Illuminator can be worn alone to highlight cheekbones, bridge of the nose or wherever you want to add a bit of luminosity. You can also mix with your favorite foundation to enhance your skin’s glow (this is how I use it).

Yesterday I was at Rite-Aid and I found some awesome items from Physicians Formula! I usually stay away from this line but I like the cute packaging and concept for these. They are called Nude Wear Glowing Nude Powder. These have perfecting nude pigments to give you glowing nudes skin. There were three products. I bought two: Nude Wear Glowing Powder in Light and Nude Wear Glowing Blush in Rose. The other was a bronzer.There was also a highlighter/concealer in one shade, Nude Wear Touch of Glow in Nude Glow.

The concealer I wore this morning and it goes on a little yellow but dries pretty “nude” without being too dark. I do not have dark circles that needed to be covered but I do want something that gives me a glow. As for the powder, I would LOVE to have a powder that gives me a light glow as well as sets my makeup. Those two things are very hard to find. I used the Light shade and as soon as I did the silver on top did disappear as soon as I swooshed the brush across, making it disappointing that the possible glow is not all the way through? I hope the Rose blush is better!
The Glowing Nude Powder is $14.95. The Nude Wear Glowing Blush is $12.95. The Nude Wear Touch of Glow concealer is $12.95. I purchased these at a Rite-Aid store. Often the store runs BOGO 50% and it is better to purchase them that way. They are also available online at www.physiciansformula.com.

So, these are just a few items that I thought would look great with the “Rosy Nude” look that is so trendy these days. Cheeks are going to be rosy and predominant this spring. Skin will be glowing, you can bet on that. Eyes will take a break from the smoky looks and have a softer touch to them. Lips, well lips will always have either a gorgeous fresh light lipstick or a beautiful glossy lip going on.
