This is a blush I got in Paris at the flagship Sephora on the Champs d’Elysee, aka The MOTHERSHIP.
Givenchy Le Prisme Blush Glow-41 Lune Rosee called to me! I swear it said my name, with a French accent, mais oui! And it didn’t say Trakee. Wait, have I not told you that story? Sorry! One day, my doorbell rang and it was a FedEx lady delivering a package. She pronounced my name TRAKEE. Not kidding. Stay in school kids. Stay in school.

Looks gorgeous right? The four shades have a gorgeous shimmer to them and are nicely pigmented.
Funny thing is, I don’t particularly like it on me. Can you believe it?
Mixed all together, Le Prisme Blush Glow-41 Lune Rosee is a bit too much blush for me I think. Never thought I’d EVER say that!
It kind of gives me that old lady who applied too much blush look. I have to use a really, really light hand when I use it. Really light. Thank goodness for my NARS Yachiyo Blush Brush that I just got for Christmas.
I think there’s just too much shine going on this blush. Because of all the shine going on it makes my chubby cheeks look even chubbier! I mean look! They just seem to be popping out of the photo! Holy Weight Watchers take my money-please! And wow, it can emphasize my “smile wrinkles”. I wish just ONE of those pretty coloured squares was a matte. Why wouldn’t you make just one a matte?
I might try a little self tanner on the face and see if that makes me like it better. I am rather pale without my beloved Dior Aurora bronzer on. See that? I mentioned it again. I think I’m going to count how many times I make a reference to the Dior Aurora Bronzer this year. So far I think we are on 2? 3? Somebody?
I have not given up on Le Prisme Blush Glow-41 Lune Rosee quite yet. Like a true blush fiend, I will try to make this pretty little fancy blush work.
But, the next time a blush talks to me, I’ll make sure to ask it a few more questions and get to know it a bit better before I decide to take it home with me. At least get it to buy me a cup of coffee first, right?
