gorgeous weather always sends me strolling in the beauty aisles for a new blush and there haven’t been many big developments in the world of cheek color in recent seasons. it’s cream or powder, matte or shimmer, but leave it to bare escentuals to shake things up in a good way.
the new black compact is a fresh addition to my beauty basket, trumping regular old powder blush with the addition of camellia flower oil which helps to keep its solid shape without the addition of fillers and parabens. the camellia oil also it to swirl on nicely and gives them an almost creamy feel. it’s the first time i can say that there’s something between cream and powder, and it’s this.
formula being a winner, it’s icing on the cake that the color run in this collection is one of the prettiest i’ve seen, from light nude to bold blushing pink. i’m highly pleased with the pigment and a finish that falls somewhere short of entirely matte, thanks to a slight sheen. this makes them all the more blendable.
the tiny brush, normally the first thing to go when i open a new blush, is especially great if you’re a gal who likes to take her blush on the road. it’s the high quality we’ve come to know and love from be in the brush department, but pocket sized.
all in all? pretty darn irresistible.
