First, I would like to say Happy Father's day to all the fathers (ok I'm sure there aren't really any fathers reading this blog but o well).
I haven't hid it much that I am a sucker for cream blushes. I just find that they look more natural than powder blushes and I just love how glowy my cheeks look when I use them. The Armani blushes have the most unique texture I have ever worked with. They are not creamy by any means, but I don't think that makes them hard to apply. They feel dry to the touch, but it is easy to pick up pigment. For the record, I use my fingers. I find them really easy to spread on my cheeks and they dry to a kind of powder finish. I find they last pretty well and are not at all sticky (which I loathe).
In this picture, 7 is on the left and 2 is on the right. 7 is a warmish light bronze shade with shimmer. It creates the perfect bronzey cheek and is nice with a heavier eye or lip. 2 is a berry color with shimmer and is highly pigmented. It creates a nice flush colored cheek or a "pop of color" (I know many of you hate that phrase, sorry!).
I haven't had much of a chance to play with Armani's blending blush duos, which is what replaced these single colors, so I can't comment on how similar they are or if there are comparable shades in those duos.
And the question of Sunday is...
What is your favorite dessert?
