I’ve been REALLY wanting one of those new Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheers, specifically the shade No.9. What’s been stopping me from picking it up is the almost $10 price difference here in Canada-it’s just UGGGH WHY so much MORE monies?! So I’ve put that lemming on hold until my next trip to the States. I can wait for another blush, right? RIGHT.
The other day as I was picking up a prescription at Shoppers, and I noticed a new Essence display for summer, and LOOKY WHAT I FOUND:
This is Essence Sun Kissed Cheek Tint in Hello Summer! and it only cost $3.49 CDN. HOW could I pass it up?
Swatchy Time! Indoors, then in the sun:
Essence Sun Kissed Cheek Tint in Hello Summer! is a gel texture blush and it’s HELLA PIGMENTED. You need so very little of the product-it’s kind of scary to use to be honest, especially when you’re fair like me. Just pump out the tiniest bit of gel, otherwise you’ll be wasting it! A stippling brush works best to apply it, and make sure you dab most of the product OFF of your brush before going to your cheeks, otherwise say hello to clown cheeks! Essence Sun Kissed Cheek Tint does blend easily, and doesn’t move foundation either. It’s just SO PIGMENTED that you might need to go over your cheeks with a bit of foundation or powder to tame the pigmentation down. Oh, and it stains too-so be careful! When you’re dabbing some of the product off of your brush, DON’T use your hand-use a kleenex. I’l say this-Essence Sun Kissed Cheek Tint has some great lasting power though- all day, even in the heat!
The shade of Essence Sun Kissed Cheek Tint in Hello Summer! really does mimic that I-spent-the-whole-day-in-the-sun flush though! TOTALLY worth $3.49! And it’s quite satisfied my Armani lemming to be honest! If you spy one of these at your drugstore, get it! JUST BE CAREFUL!
Have you seen the Essence Summer 2013 Display yet? And who else wants an Armani Fluid Sheer too?
