If you haven’t already figured this out from my instagram feed- I ADORE Daniel Sandler products, especially his Watercolour blushes. They have a gorgeous finish and are one of the most long lasting blush formulas I have tried – even better than my MUFE HD blushes. Illamasqua Velvet blushes from their Sacred Hour collection have similar lasting power. Also- you can mix the Watercolour blushes to create your own custom cheek shade!
I’ve reviewed the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in Cherub in a previous post.
Keep reading after the jump!
Watercolour Blush in Gentle: Peachy terracotta shade. Medium pigmentation and very buildable. I can see this suiting pretty much all skin tones.
Watercolour Blush in Dare: Watermelon pink, best for medium to dark skin tones because it is highly pigmented. Use the tiniest amount for a natural looking flush.
Both can be sheered down or worn with full pigmentation. Something odd about this product is that when it comes out of the bottle, you can see fine shimmer particles in it, but once blended on the cheek the product looks virtually matte on me.
In action… Watercolour blush in Dare (left) and Gentle (right)
I like to apply this by squeezing a tiny dot on the back of my hand, then tapping the product onto my cheeks with a finger then blending. These two aren’t quite as thin in consistency as the watercolour blush in Cherub, so it’s not necessary to wait a few seconds for the product to dry down before blending (and requires less layering).
The formula of the Watercolour blushes requires shaking before use. I’ve noticed that even after shaking, Dare still has a strange grittiness to the texture straight out of the bottle, but once applied to the cheek it’s not noticeable.Posted by myfunnyvalentine on Jan 14th, 2014 in Blush, Reviews, Swatches | 94202commentsDaniel+Sandler+Watercolour+Blush+in+Gentle+and+Dare+Reviewed2014-01-14+02%3A25%3A24myfunnyvalentinehttp%3A%2F%2Fmyfunnyvalentineblog.com%2F%3Fp%3D9420
