This looks so pretty that I haven't been able to bring myself to use it -- and I've had it for a year. But one of these days I will, and then I'll update this review!
I have to be honest; the packaging is what made me buy this blush. It's a really beautiful powder blush in the shape of butterflies and bows, and I was sold on that fact alone. But I was pleasantly surprised with how nice this looks on my skin. I hate huge dark blushes because I'm extremely fair, and this pale pink lavender-toned blush works perfectly with a cool undertone. As always with Lancome, it's exceptionally good quality and a really pretty colour. Recommended for the albino like myself!
I bought this product after a makeup trial at a Lancome counter. It works very well with pale skin - I'd be about NW 15/20. At first I found it too shimmery, however now I have used it a bit more the glitter seems to have gone out of it. It is very subtle and easy to apply. It is great just to give your cheeks a healthy flush rather than a full on blush. You could probably use this as a highlighter too.
Great color on fair neutral skin. Looks like you just went out on a very cold day for a long walk. So natural and healthy looking without looking fake! Beautiful packaging, too. I am very pleased with this product in every way. I wish it wasn't a limited seasonal product.
Like most people I bought this after being tempted with such pretty colours and sparkle and the LE hype.
The silver sparkle disappears after a few swipes and found what was left was a bit of light pink and lavander/purple. At first I just got a slight light pink flush which hardly appeared and I figured I'd wasted my money.
However, after a few uses I have put my rating up from 2 lippies to 4. I use this as a blush only so use a combination of the light pink and lavander to make a cooler almost 'iced pink' look. I have found that swiping from right to left (rather than down like I was) gives a better combination of the colours. I have also ditched the little brush it came with and use a larger body shop blush brush. By building it up a little it does give a lovely natural day-appropriate colour which goes great with my v.fair foundation. Only reason one lippie is lost is that because I have to build it up more than other blushes I don't think it will last quite as long.
Well I didn't buy this but I went to the counter with every intention to. I have seen it online. I own 3 train cases full of makeup and while I adore bargains, I can definitely spend too, so I was not put off by the price tag. But boy was this a letdown. It barely shows up at all. I swiped it three times and was still trying to convince myself I was seeing it while turning my face this way and that. And I'm really peachy-pale. I own a MAC Mineralize blush and six Elizabeth Arden blushes and this doesn't even come close. Very dissappointed because it's such a stunner that I really wanted it. Waaaah.
Beautiful looking blush in the pan! The sparkles wear off after the first swipe. The bow is a nice plum that works well on the cheekbones. The pink background is good for highlighting the top of the cheekbones, and the purple bows work well to correct any imperfections. Or just mix them all together to use as a blush! It was so pretty in the pan I didn't want to ruin it! Good LE collectors item.
