So I recently got gifted with Laura Geller’s power-packed blush (thanks sis). I’m new to the brand, but, oh my, it is brightening. I’m sold.
You see, way back in my school days I used to assume that bright hot pinks were the reserve of lighter and brighter skin tones. I figured that Asian skin was destined for tan / orange shades.
However, blushes have come on a bit since those dark days, and I’ve become more informed about the power of pinks on brown skin.
I first fell in love with Mac’s Dolly Mix. But now Laura Geller’s Monochromatic Blush in Malibu is fast becoming my go-to colour.
The blush itself is a baked dome. You only need a couple of dabs – no swirling required – and the pigments spread like a dream on your cheeks. Less really is more with Laura Geller’s Blush.
The other great thing about Laura Geller’s blush is that it works across makeup free skin. In fact I happily step out without eyeliner, foundation and mascara, with a swoop of colour on my cheeks.
It’s one of the most flattering colours blushes I’ve worn, and while a little pricey at £23, I think it’s a worthy investment.
