You would love my new favourite blush. It's a sheer shade that delivers a dewy, pinched-cheeks flush to a range of skintones from very fair to medium-deep. A hydrating, emollient balm in convenient, pocket-size stick form, it's especially good for dry skin, and works on normal/combo complexions too. Oily skin could give it a go -- cheeks tend to be less oily than the rest. And it rings in at about $4 to $6, depending on whether you hit WalMart or Shoppers.
Could be you already love my new favourite blush as the lip balm it is: Maybelline New York Baby Lips SPF 20 Moisturizing Lip Balm in Cherry Me.
Yes, I'm obsessed. (See my accidental matching mani here.) On bare skin, over BB cream or foundation, or even tapped over a light layer of powder, Cherry Me gives cheeks perfect natural rosy colour with a subtle sheen and without stickiness – I'm wearing it here. And it prompts compliments. And coveting – I have to keep an eye on my tube when I'm around my nieces, ages 11 and 7.
Extra tip from Spring's Fall/Winter 2012 Toronto fashion week: try Baby Lips in Peach Kiss as a highlight on cheekbones. Expect compliments on your glowing skin, too; I got bazillions when I tried it.
Will you get cheeky with Cherry Me? What's your favourite cream or balm blush?
