My previous posts on Vincent Longo have already indicated that I tend to pass it by… nothing ever really rocks my world. So I really can’t take credit for my recent discovery of the water based foundations and blushes. This is all the fault of my favorite Space NK Guru: Edwin.
He brings me over to Vincent Longo and I’m just like: blah blah blah blah blah…
Then he forces me to swatch the blushes and I’m like OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!
Fortunately for me (and Edwin), I have incentive points (which translate into $$ discounts) with Space NK. No time like the present to cash them in!
So I ended up with this:
That’s the Water to Canvas Blush in Clover Mist. It’s like a terracota orangey rose on me. Just gorgeous.
It fees like cool water going on… like the Chantecaille Aqua Blush variety. You can use it with your fingers, a sponge or a brush. Just depends on what kind of finish you want.
I swatched it sheer, but it builds up pretty strong. And it dries down, so it totally merges in with your skin. I had a hard time ‘dry wiping’ to get it off. I ended up using a makeup remover cloth. So that tells me that it’ll stay put. Love that.
So, thanks to Edwin, I now have to take another (closer) look at Vincent Longo… AGAIN. He tried to get me to fall in love with those foundations… not gonna happen… maybe. LOL. I’ll have to see what my skin feels like. My skin likes what it likes, and the idea of ‘dipping’ into a solid foundation makes me nervous. Unsanitary.
Like I said… we’ll see.
