I now have a second favorite blush - itmay really deserve 1st place: Lorac Powder cheek stain - actually in Rosy Glow.
This stuff is great: ** easy to apply, ** absolutely smooth, ** blends like a cream, to the point that I can apply it right over sunscreen ( I do let it dry first) without it "sticking." ** It stays on for hours, and ** looks as if it's your own flushed cheeks and not makeup. It looks like a tiny little amount - but that's all you need. For reference, I have light to lt-med warm skin, am 66, and need a bit of color lift. I love it.
I actually have this in Rosy Glow, ( but for some reason I can only comment on existing reviews, cannot start a new one),, anyway, this is a great blush, does exactly what is says it will do. Lasts for the whole day, and then some. Also, you don't have to put a lot on to get this benfit. Love it!
This is marketed as a 12 hour blush and ---- it lasts! With primer, fdtn and this pretty light to mid tone pink with a very subtle sheen you will get some fading from hours five through twelve but there will be enough for you to not need to touch up. Highly pigmented, but unlike Nars you don't have to start out looking clownish to get it to stay. It is probably a take off on the Tarte AC 12 hour blushes, but this one is so much better. Unlike Tarte, it is not chalky and you don't have to initially pack on or overcorrect to get it to stay. That said, the colors are classic, not trendy. Tarte has a larger selection, some with shine, and more complex colors, i.,e. "exposed". I find the Lorac version to be as silky as my Dior blush, and that is just not true with Tarte. Highly recommend.
