The Style Page reviews liquid blushes

Lisa Eldridge, who was recently named as creative makeup director of Lancôme, has a series of popular makeup tutorials.  She is her own best model.  Her recent video on applying liquid blush inspired me to share my opinions about 2 products that she mentioned in her video: Becca Cosmetics Beach Tint and Daniel Sandler Cosmetics Watercolour Blush.

Becca Beach Tint is actually thicker than liquid, more like a cream.  It comes in a number of fruity shades, with a subtle scent to match.  My complaint is that Becca Beach Tint has a tendency to separate.  I received Becca Beach Tint as a PR sample.

Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush is a cult favorite in the UK.  You may shop it through web sites such as BeautyMART and Cult Beauty.  I purchased mine when Cult Beauty had a special for free international shipping.  Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush is very runny.  It comes in a dropper bottle: just let gravity do its work, don’t squeeze – it’s easy to overdo it.  It is very pigmented and if you overdo it, you’ll look like a clown.  It separates, and the bottle contains a mixing bead of the type you might find in a bottle of nail polish.

Make Up For Ever had a liquid blush that came in a pump dispenser, and I would always pump out too much.  The Sephora crew member showed me how little product was needed, and she anticipated a lot of returns.  MUFE apparently got the message, because it discontinued the product.

Verdict: I prefer creme blush to liquid blush.  Creme blush is simple to use: apply with your fingers.  I like using a moistened blending sponge like Beautyblender  to soften the edges.  In my stash: Stila Convertible Color in Lilium and FLOWER creme blush in Peach Blossom.
