My Experience with Physicians Formula Nude Wear Touch of Glow Stick:
Packaging: The Touch of Glow Stick comes in a chubby, twist-up container that’s capped off with a bow. The outside is a pretty rose gold tube with pink pebbled faux leather packaging and metallic accents. I love how girly it is and it’s totally one of those products I leave out to make the area look pretty. This kind of packaging is pretty much in line with the other Nude Wear products. This is one of the more prettier drugstore packaging and I always like to give it thumbs up for that!
Texture: It is smooth and creamy to apply. It glides on very well. I have tested this as both foundation and concealer. It stays on my skin for about 4-5 hours with a touch up, if my skin is too oily that day. Else, it pretty much stays put. It is not the most long wearing products when used all over the face. Probably good when you must run out for errands or for a short day out. As an under eye concealer, I use it with an under eye cream and put this on top and set it with powder. If I layer it on an all day foundation, it lasts pretty much all day with minimal fading, nothing that bothers me. Only when used on its own, it has average staying power.
Shade: It only comes in one shade – Nude Glow. Now, I cannot wrap my head around this concept of why someone would release base products in one shade only. They have marketed this as a foundation and concealer and highlighter. How are they expecting one shade of one product to be used as all three? I just can’t understand! I used this as a base because I felt it suited me best that way.
I do not see a glow on my face and while it looks natural and hides most of my problem areas, there is such a vast difference between the claims and performance that I’d really rather skip this.

2/5 for the packaging and formula
While I can use this product as a base, I can’t really see other people to be able to do so. And, that’s a no-no for me. This is a miss from Physician’s Formula.
