GOSH Cream Blush in Brown Dash/Natural Collection Blush in Peach Melba
Take Collection 2000's Mosaic Shimmering Glow Powder. I bought this on a whim around two years ago and I'm on my second pan! I know there's nothing more irritating than describing a product with a word in its title, but Collection 2000 hit the nail on the head - this powder creates a beautiful, buildable glow. Cooler skin tones can opt for the Snow White-esque reds or the dramatic pinks when the cold strikes, but for my complexion (which does dull in the latter part of the year) a highlighter/bronzer combo offers my skin a new lease of life. The Mosaic Glow Powder gives a healthy sheen to the face that doesn't overpower paler skin and leave you feeling like an Essex reject.
GOSH's Cream Blush is thick and tough to blend, but it stays for a good few hours. Don't be dissuaded by the name - this blush is a brown tone but it isn't like rubbing foundation ten shades darker than your colouring onto your cheeks. As a cream blush, it doesn't cling to dry skin and can be blended onto the cheekbones for a more defined look. It is a definite alternative to the aforementioned Snow White colours!
Lastly, something I'm sure you're all sick to death of hearing about (I can sense the resounding sigh), it's the Natural Collection blush in Peach Melba! Again, peach is a colour better associated with the Summer, but as this blush is pigmented yet subtle, it simply adds a natural looking tone. Check out my previous post for a slightly more articulate description.
P.s. I apologise for the disjointedness... I feel like bambi on the ice writing again!
P.p.s. I apologise for all the Disney references. Christmas makes me nostalgic.
