I have had so many questions about the new Catrice Blush Flush Limited Edition since I posted about it in my Haul and First Impressions. So, even though I have a mountain of other reviews to get through, I thought I would do this one first. Can we first just take a moment to appreciate the packaging? How high-end and fabulous does it look?
As the name suggests, this collection is all about blush, and is inspired by the latest makeup application trend- Draping. Draping is a contouring technique used to emphasise your cheekbones using different shades of blush, as opposed to a contour and highlight. From cushion blush, to butter blush and even a liquid, mousse and ombre blush, this collection has all of your blush needs covered, no matter your texture or shade preference.
The products I was most excited for were the Ombre Blush, Cushion Blush and Fluid Glow.
The Blushing Mousse and Butter to Powder Blush come in three shades, the Cushion Powder Cheeks and Ombre Blush Palette come in two shades, and there is one shade of the Fluid Glow and one Double Face Brush.
Swatches from Top-Bottom:
Cushion Powder Cheeks in Tawny Apricot and Tanned Rose- Tawny Apricot has a matte finish, whereas Tanned Rose has a satin finish. I love both of these shades. The product is housed in the cap, and when you twist it, you get the perfect amount of product to dot onto your cheeks. I prefer to use a brush to blend, but you could use the cushion or even your fingers. The texture of the blush is somewhere in between a cream and a powder, a bit similiar to the Colourpop formula. It does dry down to a powder, so it lasts quite long on the cheeks.
Butter to Powder Blush in Peach Parfait- This feels like a lip balm, it melts into the skin, but dries to a powder. It leaves a very slight flush on my cheeks, that leaves me looking fresh and healthy, it is so light that it looks and feels like my skin, which I love! I usually find cream blushes turn greasy on me after a while, but this one doesn’t, thankfully!
Fluid Glow in Eternal Glow- These highlighting drops are so so pretty! They can be used alone to highlight, or under a powder highlight to intensify the glow. I have also used this as a highlighting blush and it works so well, it doesn’t emphasise imperfections and adds a bit of colour and glow to the face.
Ombre Blush Palette in Blurred Orange- This palette has such a good variety of shades and finishes, from a light pink to a rusty bronze in both matte and shimmery finishes. This palette is the warm version of the two, and the other palette would best suit those with cooler undertones. The last swatch shows a swirl of all of the shades together. The powder is soft and buttery and blends really well, and I am really happy with this palette.
Last, and definitely least is the Double Face Brush- This brush is meant to be for cream and powder, depending on which side you use. The black bristles are supposed to be for applying powder, but they are just too dense, and do not work at all. The natural coloured bristles are meant to be for applying cream products, and they work quite nicely. I also like using this side of the brush to press in the concealer under my eyes, I find it similiar to my Sephora 56 one, although not as good. There are definitely better brushes out there, and this one is definitely one to skip in my opinion.
