I think I’ve figured out why I’m generally not a ‘blush’ person…as I have dry skin, blush to me is just another powder that I can put on my face and increase my chances of looking cakey. I like to stay as far away from powders as possible, so have never felt the need to add another one into my routine.
I was super intrigued when I first saw this gel blush – or ‘intuitive cheek color’, as it is called, from Smashbox. The O-Glow works with your skin to create a gorgeous blush shade.
It comes in a handy little tube format and cute design on the packaging – the pink glow is the kind of look I’d actually like to achieve!
When you first squeeze the gel out, it is pretty much clear (with the slightest hint of pink buried somewhere in it)
But don’t be fooled! A little of the gel really does go a long way – I blended it out with my finger and achieved a beautiful dusky pink look.
And if you were wondering what the colour looks like in a more concentrated form, I have a handy snap for that too! Here is how my finger looked after I used it to blend the gel out:
Eeks! It’s a good job it blends out much better than that on the skin. I used it in a recent video and took a photo afterwards to show you how it looks in practise (I’m a very serious person, y’know)
The Smashbox O-Glow Intuitive Cheek Color retails for £21 from Boots, but as I mentioned you only need a tiny bit to get a gorgeous effect. A tube would last you for a very long time!
And so I continue my love with Smashbox…one of my favourite brands ever!
