Review – Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in So Pretty
My first liquid blush experience. I’ve been resisting going down this route cos i was concerned about ease of blending, and how long it’ll last with my skin which tends to be oily. So anyway, i decided to take the plunge when Asos was having a sale. LOL, lovely excuse for just wanting some retail therapy. If i remember correctly, it was S$33.60 before discount on the Asos website for a 15ml tube.
Let’s take a look at the packaging and a swatch of this watercolour blush.
Product Information: (taken from the Daniel Sandler website)
Multi award winning Watercolour fluid blusher contains Vitamin E and Jojoba to enhance application and nourish skin.
Daniel says “I chose a silicone based oil free formulation as it doesn’t clog pores and suits every skin type. The silicone makes it virtually rub-off proof plus water-resistant. Lifts all skin types with an instant radiance”.
How to use – The special ingredients in your Watercolour may separate so vigorously shake the bottle to mix evenly before each use. Unscrew the cap then squeeze out one tiny drop of Watercolour on the back of your hand. Using the Waterbrush, pick up the first drop of colour, apply to cheeks and blend. Using the second drop, do the same thing on the other cheek. To deepen the colour on your cheeks, re-apply a drop of colour to each cheek and blend. Always replace the screw cap securely.
Just because i’m in vacation mode, the first thought that came to mind was how small and light this was. Great for packing on vacations! What’s more, i can skip the blush brush because i can just use my fingers to apply and blend. So Pretty is a medium pink that’s very natural-looking, easy on the eyes, and i’m sure it will photograph beautifully.
First things first, don’t forget to shake well before dispensing the product from the tube. It tends to separate when left to stand in the tube. When first swatched on the back of my hand, it felt somewhat gritty when i was trying to blend it out. But once it’s blended out nicely, i didn’t feel it anymore. A little seriously goes a long way… and of course i did not realize that earlier… look at the picture of my swatch above. LOL! It’s very pigmented, so just use a drop at a time, blend it out, then add more if you need to. It was also surprisingly easy to blend, no funny streaks or anything. It also lasted pretty well through the day, thanks to it’s silicone-based formula which is water-proof as well. I really like the natural flush on my cheeks when i use this.
In my books – money well spent! :)
More pictures of it with a FOTD – What do you think? Have you tried this before?
