My blush collection is almost obscene with the amount I own, but I get rather bored of them easily but every now and then I rediscover the love I once had for the odd blush and right now I’ve rekindled the flame with Giorgio Armani’s Blushing Fabric Second Skin Blush in Sicilian Orange. The range of shades are amazing with a few other favourites being Raspberry and Scarlatto but I have yet to get my hands on them.
The blush isn’t doesn’t have the word ‘fabric’ in it for no reason; it honestly feels like velvet! Applying a blush is usually a tedious chore but with this, you’ll want to apply it all day long! The reason probably behind this is that the blush is a blend of water soluble pigments and lacquers and its water base makes it easily buildable so you’ll never look like you’re wearing too much in one go unlike with powder blushes. In the swatch of the blended blush, you can see just how subtle it is but you can build up the intensity to give off the whole cliched ‘glowing from within’ look. I have the worst diet known to man and this blush just makes me look like the healthiest woman ever.
Not only is it one of the best blushes I’ve had the pleasure of coming across, but it works quite well as a lip tint too. Cream and water based blushes work incredibly well on the lips so whenever you’re purchasing them, think of yourself as getting a 2-in-1 product!
