Beauty, MakeupI’m Blushing…

josiemaranBlush is one of my least favorite makeup items to buy. I don’t know why–it’s just so… boring (I know they’re important for a complete beauty look…but just telling the truth here guys!) to me.  So any time I can try a blush that’s a little bit different than my normal powder ones, I’m excited. Enter Josie Maran’s new Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelées. These adorable little pots of color actually make blush (dare I say it?) kind of fun! First of all, the colors are just so juicy and irresistible and the texture makes them perfect for summer (try popping them in the fridge for a cool color refresh.) This gel blush is build-able with what I’d call sort of a thick gel consistency–you swipe your finger over the top and then rub the color onto your cheeks. It’s very easy to blend, so there are no weird streaks of color left behind (total pet peeve). The two shades I tried gave me a natural flush of color that lasted all day and didn’t dry out my skin (the gelées are infused with 50% pure coconut water, so they’re very hydrating). I also like that there are only six shades available–all the basics (pink, orange, nude, wine, red…) are covered, but you don’t have to stand in front of the display for an hour trying to figure out which of the ten pinks shades are best for you. I might have to buy all six of the colors so I can actually enjoy using blush again.  So fun!

    I’m absolutely obsessed with this blush. I use it everyday and did a full review on it in my blog. I even called myself a “pot head” just because I am loving all things in pots these days! I can’t believe that it is all natural AND it lasts all day, unlike the all natural RMS version. I have to try other shades!

    I could relate to the least favorite item. But I usually use blush to highlight my cheeks and to complement my overall makeup. I like to use something that is closer to the foundation or powder that I am using. Perhaps I should check out Josie Maran’s new Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelées because coconut watercolor sounds organic to me.
