Review of Everyday Minerals Wild Vines Blush by olelala
This is it, everybody. The real thing. The HG blush. The one beauty editors in magazines pine for, but don't really think exists.
EDM describes it as: "An ever so lush matte sorbet pink blush." Let me tell you, this stuff is AMAZING. It makes my flat NC35 cheeks look like tiny winged cherubs kissed it from above. It makes me look like I'm a J. Crew model coming in from the cold. It just lights up my entire face, and makes me look healthy and alive. One tiny sprinkling on the flat surface, a ruffle of bristles from my SK Skunk, and some careful buffing onto the apples of my cheeks, and it's instant perfection!
I'm a fickle fickle girl when it comes to blush, and I've tried, loved, and then hated all the classics. NARS Orgasm, which never really showed up on my skin. NARS Torrid, which showed up, then broke me out. Illamasqua Hussy, which was a beautiful color, but not *the* color. EDM Wild Vines has got it right! I have long ditched my other blushes, and this is the only one I will now use. I only have the sample size, but rest assured I will be buying the full size very soon.
Hopefully EDM doesn't discontinue it after, because it is one of the Winter Collection colors! Warning: VERY pigmented, a light dusting is enough for perfection. =)
EDIT (1/18/11): Can't believe how long I've been using this blush! It is still my absolute HG, and I use it every single day. Amazing!!
