Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush ($28) launched earlier this Spring in a range of sixteen shades. I think these are easily overlooked since Estee Lauder is written off as a more “mature” or “older” brand.
I admit even I have dubbed it “grandma” makeup. But honestly, since creative director, Tom Pecheux, has joined the brand I feel like new life has been breath into many of the collections launched.
I have a hardcore lemming for Tom Ford Blushes however, I’m unsure if I’m ready to take the near $60 plunge to own one of these wonderful creations.
I must say that Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush has cured some of those lemmings. These are an affordable, luxury blush that’s well worth checking out. I have a feeling once you tried one you’ll want to grab up all the shades like me.
The Jill Stuart Patisserie Mix Blush Compact are available in two limited edition shades for Fall 2012. Jill Stuart Mix Blush isn’t really a new product but it gets re-packaged for the Patisserie Collection in a new white eyelet compact.
I love what Jill Stuart did with this collection in terms of packaging. It’s a refreshing change from her typical mirror compacts.
Let’s take a look!
At a glance and a swatch Skin Food Sugar Cookie Blush is incredibly disappointing. Perhaps for a super fair skin tone but for me? No go.
I purchased it in Winter Cherry, proceeded to swatch it and was crushed that it barely showed up on my skin. I liked the color and was kinda hopeful it would prove a more pink version of Tarte Glisten but that swatch really slayed me.
Needless to say I tossed it on the side for a few days and almost didn’t bother trying it out.
Sure glad I finally reached for it!
Ahhh NARS Orgasm. Love it but hate the shimmer factor? I must be a completely crazy person but I honestly don’t see the problem with O or Super O. Super Orgasm definitely has sparkle, no doubt. Big azz chunky glitter style sparkle but…you can buff it easily away. And O, well, it just has this iridescent glow to it that’s so damn gorgeous.
People can preach to me daily that they feel both shades are incredibly overrated but I simply stick my fingers in my ears and go, LA-LA-LA-LA!
I love the shade. It’s just the perfect golden pink peach.
Ok, so we established you dislike the shimmer…
Have you met NARS Deep Throat?
It’s a bit early for Fall 2012 but the new Lorac Pro Powder Cheek Stain is ideal for Summer as who doesn’t want a long wearing blush for the warmer weather?
Available in six shades ($20) Pro Powder Cheek Stain is a new blush that promises 12 hours of wear.
Does it last that long?
