This have to be one of the most elusive flush in background. It was love at first swatch when I tasted it in Superdrug in 2015, yet it’s taken several useless (and also often expensive) trips to Superdrug prior to I lastly obtained my hands on my extremely own … then I went and also dropped it, hence the fall apart in the edge!
This is my very first Smooth blusher as well as I’m blown away by its high quality, specifically given its small price. I would describe the color as a glowing reefs with gold glimmer. It’s commonly proclaimed as a dupe for Nars’ notorious Climax blush. I can see the resemblances however has a whole lot more gold shimmer and also Climax is pinker.
The powder texture is amazing, almost buttery as well as layers like a desire. It is extremely abundant and also well pigmented. I do not really discover the colour to be that extreme, yet the gold shimmer is solid. A little goes a long means as well as if you’re fair skinned you may wish to apply with a light hand. It’s an instantaneous face brightener and also a great summer shade. The coating is someplace between frost and also shimmer, which is appropriate up my road. Its remaining power is good, it does fade a little bit greater than I’m used to with MAC as well as Benefit blushers, however at a portion of the cost I ain’t whining! For me, the result are someplace between a blush and a highlighter and also on the face it reminds me a little of Coralista.
I used it over MAC’s the other evening for a much more extreme peachy/coral color and also it looked remarkable. is a matte color so I had not been doubling up on the shimmer, yet did intensify the colour. The product packaging is slique and there’s a generous sized mirror inside the portable, again comparable to Nars.
Generally this is a fantastic multi-use blusher. Remarkable appearance, stunning shimmer and also an absolute deal …? 4.49 from Superdrug shops, locate one if you can!
