Left- Trip Right-AcidIn this post I'm stepping out of my comfort zone with blushes in terms of colours and textures. Like many people I tend to use powder blushers and the occasional cream, while sticking to "safe" colours, none that are too "in ya face" because lets face it no one wants to look like a clown, do they?
Daniel Sandler is a name and brand I have heard of quite a lot. He's famous for he's Watercolour blushes, a unique watery formula that is "easy to blend" and "buildable".
I have been wanting to try them for ages and when I saw a picture of he's latest limited edition colours I knew I just had to get them.
I know what you're thinking.... Those colours look really bright how on earth could you want them? To be fair you we're probably right, but I knew deep down that they weren't going to be as bright and they would be great colours for spring/summer. (I tend to go for corals and last year I was really into oranges, so I knew I had to try these)
The texture is that of water which does take some getting used to if like me you're a dab and swipe kinda girl. Applying these are actually really easy once you have the hang of it. I shake the bottle and drop a tiny bit onto my finger and then dab two or three dots onto my cheeks. I then use a stippling brush to blend the colour out. It does blend out really easily, almost like water you could say which is apt as the formula does resemble water in its consistency. Once blended the colour sheers down but you can build it up for a more dramatic look if needed.
The blush looks very natural on the skin and sinks in without the powdery residue which you can get with some powder or cream-powder blushes. As the blusher is sort of a stain the colour lasts a lot longer on me then normal blushes, it doesn't smudge or go patchy and looks great for the majority of the day. I tend to find other blushes only last a few hours on my combination skin so this is a major plus point for me.
These blushes come as a duo and are available for a limited time only. If you fancy giving them a try they are sold on the Daniel Sandler website, £25.00 for both.
What do you think of these colours? Have you tried Daniels Watercolour Blushes before?
