The Lipstick League wants to know what's on your cheeks. What's the one blush you reach for most these days?
My daily blush right now is Stila Aqua Glow Watercolor Blush ($34 at sephora.ca and $26 at sephora.com). Water-based colour in a little container with a mesh barrier, it's a good one to try if you're looking for a natural result on pretty much any skintype.
Rosewater, the shade I'm using, is lightweight, easy to blend and sheer. Although liquid, the consistency isn't quite as thin and watery as say, Benefit Benetint. The blush sinks into skin easily, but has just enough viscosity blend smoothly, and it delivers a lovely natural flush and a clean, shine-free finish. Fresh, but not dewy. Golden shimmer winks from the colour, but it doesn't show on skin – probably because I use the tiniest bit of whatever's transferred to the stopper from the mesh.
