So, you know how I’m always like, “OMG I can’t wear glowy highlighters on my fuller face!” But I have to admit that I have a serious addiction to glowy blushes. NARS Orgasm, Milani Blossomtime Rose Powder Blush (as seen below on my cheeks), Sephora Double Contouring Blush, these are just a few of my favorite blushes that give me a gorgeous, radiant glow.
I was browsing Sephora, as I have been known to do, and I came across the new Kevyn Aucoin The Pure Powder Glow and instantly clicked on the link. New glow blush? By Kevyn Aucoin? I’m so on that.
So glow for me implies some radiant or luminous finish. According to the description, it’s a lightweight powder blush that brings a soft wash of color to cheeks with a warm glow.
But dude, the promo images are boring.
I’m wondering if I should pick up Fira, which looks like a rather delightful corally orange and see how much “glow” we’re talking about here.
Is it possible Kevyn Aucoin’s The Pure Powder Glow is a victim of bad promo images?
Has it happened to you before?
You’re shopping online, and the description of some new makeup item sounds AMAZING but…
The promotional image is such a gross misrepresentation of the product or the color? I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve passed up on something amazing because the promo image was so bad.
MAC is notorious for releasing bad color images of their products as the shades are NOT true to life in the least.
What makeup have you purchased or not purchased due to bad promo images?
Have you been a victim of poor promotional images?
I have to admit I’m one of those people that DOES judge a book by its cover. If a book has a bad cover I’ll sometimes pass it by. Likewise for bad makeup promo images!
