I first read about the Daniel Sandler Watercolour blushes from a post on Modesty Brown a couple of years back. She raved about the great staying power and lovely finish from this formula, so I’m surprised that it took me this long to pick one up for myself (I got mine from ASOS.com when there was a 25% off everything sale a few weeks ago). I’m quite fond of this blush, and when there was another ASOS sale last week- I picked up another two shades, which will be reviewed soon.
Colour, finish, performance:
Cherub is a semi sheer pale pink in a velvety matte finish. I adore the shade for a fresh bloom of colour on the cheek which manages to be both youthful and quite sophisticated. Despite how pale it is, it still pops nicely against my skin fair to medium olive skin- and I can imagine this shade suiting a variety of skin tones because it is a fairly neutral pink.
Like the other shades I’ve tried, lasting power is impressive.
Compared with the other Watercolour Blush shades I’ve tried (Dare and Gentle), this is by far the sheerest (easier to work with for paler skinned folk than the other colours).
How to use:
The product separates on standing so you need to shake before each use. I squeeze one dot of the Watercolour blush on the back of my hand before transferring the product to my cheeks.
I like to apply this product by tapping it on the the apples of my cheeks, waiting a few seconds for it to dry down slightly, then blending. I do 2 layers. I found that the product has so much slip that if I blend it like I normally would with a cream blush, it ends up getting way too sheer. I haven’t tried using a brush with this product, but the Daniel Sandler ‘Waterbrush’ has been developed for this.
