This fall, I’m really into blushes. Not only do I dig out my old supplies, but also replenish them with new stuff. This review is my attempt to touch the legend.
Why legend? Well, once I entered the local store asking about blushes, and the beauty consultant dragged me to the NARS corner, and her eyes burned.
That time, I didn’t even swatch it because the shade seemed to be piggy pink * oink!
But, this blush still got me. I received a mini in a beauty box, unexpectedly.
This blush isn’t rare like a bearded unicorn, you can buy it literally in every cosmetic store. Be ready to fork out $40.
My mini box is priceless. By the way, it’s not that small.
The blush is sold in a black box which I have thrown away immediately after I received it.
The case is made of soft-touch material and a lot of cosmetic dust accumulates on it. It’s not slippery so it’s hard to drop and break it.
Inside, the blush is covered with a plastic lid. There is also a mirror of decent quality. In general, even a mini-blush like mine offers top quality.
And the color...Ah, this color!
It’s pink! I can’t see anything peachy about it no matter how hard I try. It’s just pink. However, if you’ll look closely, you’ll see the golden mist on the cool pink undertone (it doesn’t look cold yet it’s definitely not warm). It’s a beautiful yet way too bright color. Swatches required!
And I think that if I started swatching it in the store, I wouldn’t have figured out what’s so special about it. It looks pink in the pan, but leaves a golden mist on my fingers. What are you, demon?
The point is, a brush can work wonders with this, and the pink can be finally seen through the golden satin.
The upper swatch depicts my attempt to pick the blush up with a finger, the lower - with a brush.The blush has great blendability and shows an extremely delicate and beautiful color that freshens the whole complexion. The color is versatile, it isn’t ice cold yet not peachy, it’s completely natural.
It’s not blush, it’s an injection of pure hemoglobin into my sleepy organism, which gives a very delicate glow from within. No doctor tries to send Her Paleness for blood tests anymore. Once, even my husband inquired how many cups of coffee I’d consumed that made me look so fresh. Maybe he overestimated it, but still.
There is a little minus: its longevity. This blush must be touched up after a few hours of wear. But in general, the blush is insanely cool!
The bottom line: it’s a must for those who don’t know where to start their blush adventures. It’s the most natural, delicate and versatile shade that makes Her Paleness a healthy-looking person.
