Gather round chicks, tis story time.
I have alot of blush. I mean like too many, like I need more faces to wear it all. I know you can all relate to this.
Honestly, after collecting so many blushes, it’s somewhat hard to amaze, delight, or shock me with a new shade as they all starting to run together and in most cases are easily duped by shades I already have in my collection.
Drum roll please.
I’m loving Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cheek Blush in Parasol!
Unique, pretty, and fancy pants packaging…I think me and Parasol are going to go steady for a long time, I might just slip a ring on it!
But of course it’s not all about the color…the real quest started out with the packaging as I’m all shallow as hell like that. Imma go ahead and admit that Tarina Tarantino Makeup Collection is thrilling me to bits because it comes housed in blinged out compacts and honestly Tarina could put mud in those compacts and I’d still buy it. I love great packaging, no shame in my game, I admit it.
Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cheek Blush comes housed in a slick silver compact with a metallic pink plate on the cover which is surrounded by pretty little crystals. Loves it!
I picked up Parasol on a whim but wasn’t expecting much as first swatch it was a tad chalky and uneventful. However, a week later and I’m still all about sporting this on my cheeks. I think I’ve made it six straight days with the same blush on my cheeks…obviously this is turning into a serious relationship as I never sport the same blush in a single week, no way, no how.
Formula is slightly weird as it has a slightly chalky swatch up but it applies dreamy as sweet cream! It has a slightly velvet finish, a bit frosty as well with a subtle little dash of shimmer, nothing crazy. The formula is nice enough but for me it was the color that made the experience so much more richer. Parasol is a shimmering bright pink coral much like NARS Orgasm, the only difference being that Parasol applies dramatically different and it’s probably what many people always wanted Orgasm to be. If you’ve been disappointed with NARS Orgasm I highly suggest trying out Parasol, I think you’ll adore it. The shade has a touch of pink and plenty of sweet peach to create a really warm glow to cheeks. I felt the shade works both warm and cool on my skin and makes my cheeks look quite pretty.
Overall, the unique shade I selected plus the fantastic packaging really made me a lover of Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cheek Blush. I’m currently debating on more shades as if they apply and look as pretty as Parasol on my face, I’d say we have a winner on our hands!
