I forgot how much I love Chanel’s Rouge Allure in Fabulous. So I built a look around this bronze-rose color:
Sunday Riley Liquid Light Foundation (140C)
Armani Maestro Eraser (#5)
By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Powder
LORAC Pro Powder Cheek Stain in Rosy Glow
Chanel Quad in Premier Regard:
Peach Matte on lids
Brown Shimmer through crease and under waterline
Black Matte on lashline
Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara
Chanel Rouge Allure in Fabulous
LORAC is changing the way we blush, with a new selection of ‘cheek stains’ that change the way I’ve been looking at blush… and stains.
Check these out:
They look like regular powder blushes. But one swipe of the finger tells a totally different story. These things are SO soft. They’re softer than any blush I’ve ever felt. There’s nothing really ‘powdery’ about them. They’re not wet, but they really ‘stick’ to the skin… like a stain.
Ruby Rouge Coral Crush Petal Pink
Plum Passion Rosy Glow
I swatched these with my fingers because I truly believe that’s the best way to apply these colors. They are so intense… but you can blend them out for a nice ‘blush’ and adjust the sheerness or intensity as you like. I am completely impressed by the pigmentation level and utter silken feel of these blushes.
I can’t say I’ve ever quite used a ‘powder’ blush like this before.
I tried to pick a favorite, but I’m stuck between Ruby (which is shot through with a healthy dose of gold) and Rosy. In truth, they are ALL gorgeous, and really versatile. I dare say that just about anyone can use these blushes. With the exception of Petal Pink (which is suited to fair to medium skin tones), the rest of the colors can be used on a wide range of skin tones.
