Well Dressed? I am :)

Well Dressed? I sure am after sporting this blush by MAC. I got it not so long ago from the Dubai Airport and I have been digging into it obsessively since then, with the scare of hitting pan within months.

It is abnormal for me to do so as I don't tend to love products so easily. Blush - I like to use sparingly and MAC blushers, erm lets say I share a love-hate relationship with them.

I mean I absolutely adore their Beauty Powder blushers as they give an amazing finish, but that's it really - not a huge fan for sure.

I had heard of Well Dressed on quite a few occasions, most (almost all!) of them mentioning the super glamorous Kim K, which was one of the reasons I was tempted to give this a go.

You know the bright-yet-soft -pink cheeks she sports almost everywhere? Well this supposedly should let you master that effect almost instantly.

But does it? I have to admit, it does!
...
So its not really tonnes of effort put into achieving that sort of blush, but simply getting the right color that can do the work for you within minutes.
...
I am really not a huge fan of pink to be honest, its just peach or bronze for me on the cheeks most the time. But the soft defocused hint of baby pink this lends to the cheeks is irresistible.
...
Plus the satin finish of the blush, with the right amount of minuscule shimmer makes it even more invisible on the cheeks making the flush seem from within.
...
I do have one problem with it though, it is quite powdery in texture and I have tonnes of product flying around the container along every use. It could have been well pressed you know.
...
Anyhow, ignoring just that one point, this is truly a winner in all ways. If you hate pink cheeks, try this and you will have a love affair with the color all over again. This is something I can bet on.
...
Do you know of such natural colors which are easy to hit pan on?

Lol I love the title of your post! I tend to stay away from baby pink blushes, because I have such a young/baby looking face, I find that it makes me look even younger (which I hate)!

Lipstick Rules said...

OMG - we are on the same wavelength. I just got this last week. I adore it!!!

If you like it, check out Hang Loose blush from In the Groove. My post tomorrow is about these two blushes. You might want to add another blush to your collection. hee hee.

Ive had my eye on this for ages! Think you may have persuaded me hehe xxx

Leanne said...

I bet that looks so gorgeous on your skin tone - I don't think it would do much for me because I'm so pale and cool toned! Would love to see this in an FOTD hun x

DANA said...

=) I think I've been debating whether to get this or not... between this and Pink Swoon... Should I, should I not? But if this is the shade to give that Kim K's glowing pink cheeks, I think I'm sold hahaha

Get Gawjus! said...

@Lipstick Rules - Don't tempt me lady! but now that you insist I myt have a look at it :p

@Leanne - I'l make sure its up soon :) and it will look gorgeous on you too hun, try it!

@DANA - Pink swoon, I've heard is stunning too, why not get both :p

Sami said...

I've been hearing a lot about this blusher but never really thought it would suit Asians... BUT ur review has kinda swayed me... i may have to try it... Eeek!

And if it gets me a bit closer to looking like Kim K why not :P

Would love to see a pic of you wearing it!

Mellie said...

I've been looking for more blushes, as I've been in a blush phase lately. I always wanted to try a baby pink like this, but I was never sure how it would look or which one to even go for. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!!! :) Great review!
