It looks peachy brown in the pan but its a soft skin tone flush. See more photos, description, and fun facts about blush below
Under natural lighting.. it is really barely there..
This is already 5 swipes folks.. but in person it actually shows something. This is a recommended blush for those who like bright lip colors but dont want to go out barefaced. It balances out your face and gives it a nice contrast. Lasts 4-5 hours with no retouching. This would show up on fair skin tones but can be used by both warm, cool, and neutral range.
I won’t buy again. I’d rather get NARS Zen or Madly.
Love blushes? Here are some interesting trivia on our favorite cosmetic:
- Blusher has been used by women (and in some cases men) to redden their cheeks from Ancient Egyptian times. Whereas the Ancient Egyptians are better known for their early takes on modern day eyeliner and lipstick (evident much in their art and hieroglyphics), their use of the earliest form of blusher is equally impressive.
- The use of blush fell out of favour during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, who made piercing red lips and ghostly white faces fashionable. Later on, during the Regency period, both men and women used blush for the same reasons it is used today – to create a flushed, youthful appearance as well as emphasizing their cheekbones.
- The Victorians however looked down on this form of trickery, which resulted in women of the era resorting to pinching their cheeks to achieve the same flushed effect. Interestingly, this practice is still favoured by some women today as a natural alternative to cosmetics.
- Ingredients used to make blusher have ranged from crushed mulberries and strawberries in ancient Greece to the talcum-based powder we use today, the colouring of which is often derived from the petals of the safflower.
