Review: Lancome Blush

As I mentioned in my previous post, Mai got her makeup done by Lancome at Nordstrom's Trend Show. They showed us the new color makeup that just got released and there were some very pretty colors. In the eyeshadow quad, there was an absolutely gorgeous purple quad which was called Mademoiselle Chic. As I have several purple palettes, I decided not to get it but am still thinking about it a lot so I may end up purchasing it. This palette was used on Mai and it looked great. Another new color released that was used on Mai was a blush called Shimmer Violet Sunrise. It's a deep burgundy shimmery color. It can be applied lightly for a sheer look or more heavily for a deeper, richer look. You do need to be a bit light handed with it because it's nicely pigmented and because of the deep color. Mai said that it would definitely not be a color she would have chosen to wear but it looked fantastic on her. I ended up buying it as well.

This one is taken with flash so the color shows up way lighter than it actually is. I wanted to be able to show the shimmer in the blush

Since the color is so deep, I decided to use it as a contour blush and applied Lancome Rose Deco on the apples of my cheeks.

This one is more true to color.

I used to wear deep burgundy blush a long time ago but I'm finding that as much as I love Shimmer Violet Sunrise, it doesn't seem to look good on me. I think that before I was much darker than I am now so darker, deeper colors suited me. Now, I need to use a little lighter colors.

By the way, I'm not liking the new photo upload format for blogspot. This is the 2nd post where one of my pictures is turned sideways and I can't rotate it back.

Hehehehehe. I still use blogger with old settings cos I always have difficulty using the new!

Umm... Lancome. Haven't tried too much from this brand so thank you. How cute does that rose pattern look though? The colour really suits you!

"As I have several purple palettes, I decided not to get it but am still thinking about it a lot so I may end up purchasing it." I can identify with this sentence so much =)

@BV--Mine automatically changed to the new settings so I'm kind of bummed about it. As for the Rose Deco blush, as soon as I saw it on various blogs, I knew that I had to have it. It's a LE item so no longer available. I managed to snag 2 of them even though they sold out so quickly.

@ashura--I know, it's a sad thing to be able to identify with, isn't it? My will power is still there cause I haven't purchased it yet.

@Jennifer--I'm hoping that someone will be able to come up with it for you.

@Nic Nic--Thank you! I'm actually a little disappointed by the Shimmer Violet Sunrise not suiting me very well on it's own. The similar color that I had a long time ago was something that I really loved but I'm not willing to get darker again. I guess I will try it out again and see if I can make it work out.
