A blush that is sooo pretty I could cry! a little bit extreme there but I've found one of the best blushes that my skin tone loves :)
May I present to you my latest obsession... Shu Uemura's powder blush in P Wine 25 (Gloss On)
(Gloss on is the finish which is a sheen on the cheeks for that candlelit effect)
I got this precious little thing in Singapore. It took me 3 malls to find a stock (very popular i tell you). I first laid my eyes on it in Manila when I accidentally stumble upon the counter and it was sold out. I was so confused with the names and finishes as everything is in Japanese.
The colour is so pretty! It is very comparable with MAC Dollymix (which I loved and lost...booo). But Shu Uemura is smoother and the silver sheen/specks are prettier and more flattering to the skin. It's very velvety to the touch and very pigmented but it's not to harsh looking on the skin.
It gives you a natural looking flush on the cheeks. The sheen is a perfect candlelit effect (even on day time) and the texture is just so easy to blend it's a total joy to put in. And oh did I mention that it lasts all day?
If silver sheen/specks is not your thing then try the other finishes in this colour! I really find that clever and confusing at the same time. So you better check the product and the finish before you pay. I almost got the matte one and thanks to some annoying kid I somehow paid attention to what I was buying.
Anyway, here's how it looks like on my cheeks. (Note: this is after coming back from work)
I use MAC 187 to apply it and if I am after a more intense finish, I use MAC 129 :) But any powder blush would do.
Shu Uemura is available in Australia but only in Sydney and Melbourne.
What's your favourite blush?
