“Your skin looks amazing”
“Have you been on holiday?”
Those are just a couple of the comments I got not long after I started using Barry M blusher in Peaches and cream, and they weren’t the only ones. I’ve never had such a noticeable reaction to any makeup or beauty product before, so I thought I’ve definitely got to blog about this.
How did I find this magical cheek colour? Well, I’d been looking for a coral or peach coloured blusher for a while, ever since a MAC makeup artist in the press lounge at London Fashion Week had used one on me. She explained that because I had some redness in my cheeks I should stay away from pink or red shades.
At first glance I thought this Barry M shade would be too bright, but it’s actually not as orange as it looks, it’s a lovely warm peach colour. It’s got good staying power, plus it’s got a tiny bit of sparkle in it, which is what gives that just-been-on-holiday glow. I would never use a bronzer because I’m too pale but this is a great halfway house, as blushers go. And it’s only £4.59, which is well within my frugal means. I use it every day now, and I can’t see myself going back to a more rosy colour any time soon.
