I have to say that I am a huge fan of cream products: blushes, highlighters, shadows, liners etc. And I am also a big fan of blushes. And, yes, I love cream blushes but there are several powder blushes that I really like.
So today I want to tell you about the powder blush that I totally love. And it is Blush Subtil by Lancome. This is how it looks like on the promo picture and I am showing you a promo picture because my blushes are in a set.
This is how 2 blushes that I’ve got look like:
- Cedar Rose
Why do I like this blush so much?
- First of all it is oil free which is very good, especially for summer.
- It is matte, so it won’t look horrible on your pores. And to be honest, I don’t really understand how can anyone like very shiny/with shimmer blushes and bronzers.
- Because it’s matte it gives you a natural finish.
- It’s easy to work with this blush and it’s easy to blend it.
- These particular blushes are from
After playing with my new ChaCha Tint for some time I can finally write my thoughts about the product.
It should be available here very soon now, but it’s already available in the US for $29 (for 12.5 ml). I’ve asked my friend to get me this set which was an amazing deal in May.
To tell the truth, I didn’t even plan to get the ChaCha Tint, as I want to get try the Posie Tint finally but I couldn’t miss such a great deal since I was getting some products from the US back then anyway.
I have to say that I really regret that I never ordered this set, I have no idea what I was thinking about.
But back to the ChaCha Tint… I really like the design and the package, it is so Benefit and looks great for summer.
I know that that the formula is compared to the Posie Tint and according to swatches I can also see some similarities. But, as I have only Benetint, I can say that ChaCha has a thicker and more gel-like consistency.
The colour looks really intense in the bottle and it really is, so you have to blend it out really well, especially if you have a fair skin like I do. I assume that it would look great on the dark skin tones and I can’t wait to try it on tanned and dark skin tones.
As it is a stain, I would recommend
I know that I am ‘supposed’ to write about the sweet pastel shades as it is Spring…
This set is called the Berry collection, retails for £10/€12 and includes three berry products:
- Fenberry blush, crimson rose
- Kohl Pencil Mossberry, a deep burgundy
- True Colour lipstick in Cranberry, a matte mulled wine colour
This is my first blush from Sleek and I really like the quality: pigmentation, staying power and the shade are amazing. I am definitely getting more blushes from them in the future. Have you seen their amazing trio blushes?
Kohl Pencil Mossberry
This is actually a wearable shade although it may look scary to some people. This liner was the main reason why I wanted the set to badly. It is not the softest liner and it does not ‘glide on’ plus doesn’t have the most amazing staying power but I love it anyway. If you are afraid of the shade – try adding a thin black line on top and lots of mascara! It would look amazing on green eyes but I love it on my (brown) eyes, too.
This is the lipstick that I was wearing for my Birthday which actually says a lot. I absolutely adore the
Since my post about pink blushers got so many views, I’ve decided to write one about reddish ones, too. Do let me know, if you’d like me to choose 5 corals/peaches and berries/plums…
So here is what I’ve picked:
Hourglass Aura Cheek Tint in Flush (review and swatches)
I think that Flush is a perfect name for this sheer water-based blusher, it gives the most natural and beautiful effect. Cheek Tint is easy to blend, plus it has a nice staying power.
Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in 18 Soft Cardinal (review and swatches)
This is probably my personal favourite! It is a gorgeous cream blusher with “wet & glossy” texture, it doesn’t enhance any dry patches and looks like a second skin, I use it
As you can tell, contouring is not going anywhere soon, and I was personally excited to try what Clarins have to offer, as they never go wrong with their launches.
It comes in a signature light gold slick packaging, contains three colours: matte beige, bronze and rose to create definition. There is also a brush and a card with useful illustrations on how you could use each shade.
I am personally a huge fan of the brush, it allows a precise application and hugs the curves of the face perfectly. I love applying the products with this brush and then, if needed, blend it out a bit with a fluffier one.
As for the product itself, the formula is plant-enriched, so, as always with Clarins, you get the skincare benefits. The texture is
