Remember when I first showed you the pretty pretty La Rose Deco blush from Lancome’s French Coquette collection for Fall 2010?
I figured I better start telling you about it before it flies off the shelves and disappears for good because darlings, this one’s Limited Edition! Those two dratted words again.
As I told you before, the picture above is a little washed out but since I’ve dug into this one already, let me show you how it looks without that shimmer overlay.
Its just a very fine thin layer of shimmer on top, for decoration more than to use. Like art, a bit of highlight goes a long way towards making a good picture great!
There, a quick once over with a fluffy brush and all the shimmer’s gone. This photo shows it pretty much true to pan. Perfect! 😀 I much prefer it without the shimmer. It looks pretty on, but it would be hell to use if it was shimmery. Instead the blush is matte and a combination of 2 colours – peach and pink.
Aside: I don’t know why this blush has gotten no online love. Its gorgeous both to look at and to use and it absolutely deserves to be loved.
I find the blush a little pigmented so be careful. Just a light tap or swipe over the surface is all you need for perfectly blushing cheeks. Scary close up picture below.
Its very pretty on. Lancome says this is a multi-purpose powder. I say this is a blush and nothing but a blush. Well, unless you want to walk around red-faced for most of the day.
I like how the design is laid out. You can actually go more pink or more peach depending on which side of the blush you swipe. This way, you get something like 3 different blushes in one. Ooh la la! Mais oui!
Its a very pretty blush to look at, and a pretty blush to use. I’m loving it for that fresh faced look! 😀
Pros: Fine-milled powder, Matte texture, Lovely colour and pigment
Cons: Limited edition, Too pigmented to be used for all over powder as touted
Have you checked this one out already? To be perfectly honest, if you already have lots of peachy pink blushes, you don’t need this one. But if you like owning something limited edition (that actually works well), or want to get a nice high end blush that looks nice and applies well without making you look like a discoball, give this one a look. Its not that pricey! 😉
