Beauty from the Earth’s Zinger blush

Beauty from the Earth’s Zinger blush

Posted on Friday, at

Sheer, a bit muted, but it's easy to accidentally deposit too much of this color, if you're super-pale (or even as pale as I am.) I have to use my fluffier fiber-optic face brush, rather than my more-densely-packed Sephora Professionel blush brush, to avoid applying too much color.

This one is gone from BFTE's inventory - so sad to say, if you're placing your final order today, you won't be able to get this blush. (But they've got others that you should check out!!) Dollface is halfway between Aromaleigh v1's Beauteous and Sweetheart blushes - not as bright pink as Sweetheart, a little more color than Beauteous. Gives you a sheer medium-light color with faint coral tones.

Purple blush can actually look very good, very subtle and understated, almost elegant…on someone who has cool undertones to their skin. (Warm-toned folks should just say “pretty, but no” and step away, like I do with deep melon or golden-bronze blushes.)

When I started buying mineral makeup, I went on an interference-color bender. I'd first run across these shades in the very early 80s, when a relative gave me the Dior Moonstones quad with four interference colors. I kept that palette for just over 20 years, and hit pan on three of the colors, before I started noticing it going “off.” I was desperate to replace that palette, but wasn't seeing anything…until I got my hands on these.

Incredibly rich, highly saturated color! The green shows up far more when it's applied dry. Foiling makes it look more turquoise-sapphire than turquoise-jade. The sparkle factor isn't too high, but this is definitely an intense shade! There is a bit of staining after removal, unless you use either a cream base or a slightly-thicker primer.
