If there is one beauty item I can’t have enough of, it would be blush. Surratt beauty makes one of the best blush formulas I have come across. Here are some of them.
It is with much dismay I have discovered Surratt beauty artistique blushes. Why? Because there a quite a few of them and they aren’t the most budget friendly.
What I can say about the blush formula is, it is the smoothest, softest most blendable blush I have used. Not all the colours I have bought are winners for me but the formula is extremely consistent. They are very small in size and don’t come in a compact (you need to purchase the palettes seperately). The good thing is they are all very pigmented and I do not see myself running through this tiny pan super quickly.
Here are some of the colours I have:
Cherubique – This is my number 1 favourite blush I own currently. I love it so much I keep gifting it to others to make them love it too. It is described as gleaming rose. It is very gleaming. It is rose and it is warm without showing up too warm and so it would appeal to most. It is very pigmented so a little does go a long way. It has a strong sheen to it but it doesn’t emphasize pores or any imperfections so it doesn’t need to be reserved for only your best skin days. It just wakes up your face with a nice rosey glow . This is one of the newer releases that came out at the end of last year
Ponceau – This was not one of the newer releases but one of my more recent Surratt purchases. It is described as poppy and that is pretty spot on. I think because of the shimmer it helps tone down the brightness of this and makes it much more wearable. It is a bright colour and a light hand is needed but this is definitely one of my favourites.
Parfait – This is one of my newest acquisitions and I see this becoming something I use quite regularly. This isn’t as shimmery as the first two and is a lighter peachy pink colour. It leaves a natural wash of colour that does show up on my light skin tone. It is subtle coral.
La Vie En Rose – This was my first foray into Surratt and it continues to be a mainstay. It does lean a little cooler in the rose colour family. It is quite shimmery, very pigmented and blends beautifully. It is another great choice for more a luminous sheen in your blush.
La Rosee du Soir – This is said to be a rosy nude. I would say way less on the rose and way more on the nude. Unfortunately it ends up looking muddy on my skintone and it isn’t one I reach for at all. I think it might make an ok contouring colour if one was inclined to do such things. It does have some shimmer to it though so that might be something to consider. If you are a nude/brown blush enthusiast then this might appeal to you. I am more of a brighter rosey/coral blush lover so this one is just not for me. The formula is amazing just like all the others, just not the colour.
