Catrice Blush Flush Limited Edition Collection

To make sure you have the right tools to achieve this trend Catrice Cosmetics has based it’s recent limited edition collection for February on it, and has released a total of 6 products in varying shades to help achieve the perfect draped look.

Isadora Perfect Blush

If I had to choose a least favourite makeup item I would always say blush simply because I don’t feel like it suits me to be honest. I tend to do a full makeup look and always discard blush. When I do remember to add it I tend to go for more neutral, low pigmented shades so that it looks like I don’t have it on anyway. Recently I discovered the Isadora Perfect Blush and to be quick frank ever since I have loved applying blush and incorporating it in with my makeup application.

I have three different shades of these blushes, and they each come in the same basic black packaging. They have a clear area to their lids in order for you to see what the shade is without having to actually open it. Normally I would be complaining about how the compact has no mirror but because it’s blush and not powder or eyeshadow I think it was a good decision not to add a mirror. Nobody really tops up their blush throughout the day like they would their powder or concealer.

My favourite shade from the three is actually what appears to be the brightest out of them. The shade Pinky Peach is this gorgeous muted peachy pink shade that has a shot of subtle iridescence running through it. I have to say the formulation of these is simply beautiful, they blend in so flawlessly into the skin and don’t cling to any dry patches what so ever.

My second favourite has to be 64 Frosty Rose and to be honest I don’t think it’s named very well, this is more of a peachy brown shade than rose. It also happens to be the most pigmented of the three but can definitely be sheered out by blending it in with your brush.

The texture of these blushes is like butter and everytime I pull them out of my makeup drawer I simply have to swatch them just to feel their texture it’s so nice.

Last of the blushes is called Dusty Rose and this one is named perfectly. It’s that really brown undertoned pink shade that tends to go with any makeup look. That said I’m not a huge fan of pink blushes and so I found the peachy shades a lot more faltering on the skin.

I definitely have a new appreciation for blush, and now genuinely love using it on the days that I decide to do my makeup. These blushes retail for 12.95 euros each and will be available to purchase on March 17th.
