I never knew blush could make me feel so fancy
No makeup look is complete without a pop of color on the cheeks, but blush never receives a whole lot of attention. Bronzer is a big topic of discussion come summer, highlighters have been front and center for quite a few years now, and liquid lipsticks are having a major moment. But despite being a daily staple, blush is stuck on the sidelines.
I’m here to tell you that blush can be exciting—especially when it’s La Prairie’s Radiance Cellular Cream Blush. First impression: The packaging is just so luxe. The compact feels heavy in your hand and the silver-and-gold case make it (and you) feel like a million bucks. Oh, and it comes in a silver leather zippered case that is perfect for jewelry when you travel.
Then there’s the actual blush… This formula is lightweight, creamy and beyond easy to blend. I have the “Peach Glow” and a light dab is enough for a healthy flush—and the subtle shimmer catches the light perfectly. It melds seamlessly with my skin and actually sticks around all day. Even better, it has antioxidants along with hydrating and oil-absorbing ingredients, so my cheeks are protected from the elements while looking picture-perfect all day.
OK, I know that $70 for a blush may seem crazy to some, but I’ve barely made a dent in it so I know it’s going to last a while—and can you put a price on feeling fancy, especially if picking your kid up from school is your day’s main event? I don’t think so.
