[REVIEW] The Orange Blush Look

It seems like this orange blush trend is still continuing into Fall 2011. Actually, way before it begin trending, I was already using orangey blushers due to my more tanned skin tone. Orange blushers give me a healthy glow as compared to the saccharine sweet shades of pink.

Previously, at a Maybelline event (I blogged about it HERE!), I got to try out the Angelfit blushers. As there were only the tiny brushes that usually come with the compacts. I thought that the blushers were very light and the colors didn’t show. But after using my own brush – yes, I’m an ELF fan. I realized that the blusher was really not bad after all even thoughIt’s not as orangey as the ELF one which also has shimmers.

ATTENTION! RECALLED BEAUTY PRODUCTS!

I was surfing the ELF thread in CC and this caught my eye.
I’m a HUGE fan of ELF and their blushers especially.
So I’m kinda shocked to see ELF products on the recall list.
Thankfully, their blushers are safe to use.

Kabuki Brushes & current Bioderma promo

WORTH SPLURGING ON:

New! Nature’s Minerals™ Foundation Brush

Where to buy? Bodyshop
How much? SGD33.90

Taken from the website:

“A high-density foundation brush that ensures just the right amount of loose powder is held in place between the bristles for progressive release and a smooth, even coverage. Rounded cut hairs are designed to allow circular movement across the face. Features a specially designed handle that fits easily into the palm, to allow appropriate pressure and flexibility.”

I was wandering around mindlessly at The Bodyshop when I caught sight of this new display stand for their mineral makeup range; Nature’s Minerals™.
The first thing I spotted was this kabuki brush. I tried it on the back of my hand and GOSH! It was incredibly soft and felt really luxurious against my skin.

I am not sure if it works well with loose powder but it has defintely
scored points for being so gentle on the skin.
I hope to get this very soon….. :)

It is priced reasonably and I’ve read through a few reviews on how durable it is.
So why splurge so much on expensive, fancy brands which boasts of animal hair when you can grab this one at sucha great deal?

P/S: I think it’s made of 100% synthetic bristles.

WORTH TRYING:

Where to buy? E.L.F Eyes Lips Face Online
How much? USD 5 = Approximately SGD 8

Taken from the website:

“Our handy and easy to use Kabuki Brushes provide a light to full coverage on your face or body to ensure a flawless finish. The compact brush is perfectly sized to allow for precise and controlled application of bronzer, powder, or a highlighter on your skin.”

It is made of reasonable quality for a cheap, very affordable USD 5 kabuki brush.
Soft but still not as gentle as the Bodyshop one.
And it did shed alittle on me. :(
Still pretty worth it for it’s price. It is really quite a decent brush.

Also there’s a promo going on for BIODERMA now.
There is 30% off Hydrabio (Dry skin), Sebium (Combi/Oily skin) and Sensibio (Sensitive skin) range.
20% off the White objective & photoderm range.
