L’Oreal has introduced four limited edition shades of Super Blendable Blush with their new Project Runway for Fall 2012 Collection.
The Queen’s Blush is one of two shades I’m really, really liking but the formula isn’t all I hoped for.
Find out more after the jump!
The Queen’s Blush is part of the Enchanted Queen’s Collection which features a more traditional smoky look with red lips and tips. Her blush doesn’t quite go along with the colors in this collection simply because it’s more of a warm Benefit Dallas-like shade. An odd one to pair up with smoky eyes don’t you agree?
It’s kinda of a rich, warm rosy shade with a bit of berry. For me it proves very unique. I own a ton of blushes but this feels quite different from any other shade in my stash at the moment. I absolutely love it. It’s warm, it’s rosy, and it has a certain touch of berry to it that comes across delightful on cheeks.
This year, I’m noticing the blushes from the collection are quite dry. Lucky enough they apply well and have a smooth, flawless finish but the texture is very dry and difficult to swatch. They do go quite powdery when you swipe a brush across them but the formula overall isn’t exactly the best I’ve tried from L’Oreal particularly if I am comparing formulas from last year’s Project Runway Collection.
Outside of this minor rant I really loved the color and found the formula, if nothing else, very workable. It was a mere $7.49 at Harmons which was an absolute steal for this much blush (0.35oz). I would recommend a pick up, I think you’ll find the blush as charming and exceptional a shade as I did.
Anyone own it?
P.S. I’m getting closer and closer to the Otherwise concert date here in New York. It’s October 12 in the upstate New York area, I’m more excited about this than when I saw Stone Temple Pilots this Summer. A few friends and myself are making the pilgrimage upstate to see them. Just squeeing myself silly over Adrian Patrick today, yes please, I’ll take him with a side of fries, thanks so much!
I swear my friends are sick of my playlist repeat of The Promise every time they get in my car but but…Adrian and Maria looks so damn sexy together.
What’s your autumn plans looking like? Any good events, concerts, or plans for Fall?
I’m dead tired today….so it’s my pick me up to look forward to this concert!
P.S.S. Thoughts on Who? Not sure I loved A Town Called Mercy!
