Clarins Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Colour in Sweet Rose

Meet my new favourite blush - Clarins' Blush Prodige, which isn't a new product, in Sweet Rose, which is a new shade for their Spring 2015 Garden Escape collection.  The chunky palette contains a big pan of matte rose pink, with smaller pans of deeper pink and shimmery peach - swirled together, they make for a fresh, rosy, slightly glowy but definitely not sparkly flush.

I suspect the reason that the finish is so natural is down to the fineness of the powder within the compact - it's almost dusty and crumbly, and a gentle swirl with a brush picks up plenty of super-soft powder which buffs easily into the skin.

At £26, Blush Prodige is a little on the expensive side, but for a natural flush which works with a variety of looks, I think it's worth the cash, particularly as a little goes a long way.  Just make sure you throw away the included brush and use your fluffiest blush brush, as this stuff is worthy of a gentle veil across the cheekbones, rather than a more precise application.

  1. Pretty blush, but is that an even prettier new haircut I spy?? :-)

    1. It is, thankyou very much! I have yet to have it nicely styled when there's enough daylight to photograph it ;)
