move over, nars orgasm blush. i have a new favorite - arbonne blush in blossom.
Arbonne’s mineral-infused and highly pigmented blush provides perfect natural colour to help highlight and complement the complexion.
Infused with Vitamins A, C and E and Cucumber Extract, the lightweight powder accentuates and sculpts cheeks.
like arbonne eyeshadows, i love the push button design on the compact. just push the button and the lid is opened. i have bad habbit of opening lids wtih my nails and it's bad for my brittle nails.
the color blossom is peachy pink with golden flecks yet not overly shimmery.
it's hard to capture the color of this blush. it can look pinkier or peachier under different angles and lights.
be warned, the color is very pigmented. if you're not a fan of heavy blush application like me, you'll be shocked how pigmented it is if you pick up the color normally as you would with most blushes. while the color is quite light, it's still shocking!
i've learned to just lightly touch the product with the brush.
the texture of arbonne blush is very finely milled, smooth and blends easily into the skin. colorwise blossom is perfect color to achieve a natural healthy glow.
it's an instant love and i've been using it almost exclusively since receiving the product.
retail at aud$41, arbonne blush is available in 8 shades and is suitable for all skin types, and can be purchased from independent consultants or from the website.
nars orgasm blush vs arbonne blush in blossom
since this arbonne blush has become my new favorite, i think i should do a comparison with my old favorite.
when i received blossom, i thought it's a close dupe of nars orgasm. but on side by side comparision, the colors aren't identical. both has that golden flecks but orgasm is pinkier and blossom is peachier.
there's visually difference in the swatch as they were more heavily applied than i would. you can see how much more pigmented blossom is than orgasm (about 2 swipes of blossom and quite a few more swipes of orgasm).
but when applied on my cheeks, the colors are very close.
so, why has blossom become my new favorite? because it's more pigmented. a quick dust is sufficient to give me a healthy color. nars orgasm blush is quite sheer and i usually need to apply a few layers to get the color. in addition, i've used nars orgasm blush quite a lot (pretty much 90% of the time) in the past few years it's time for a new toy.
i have had new blushes since acquiring nars orgasm but nothing gets this much attention!
