Today is a makeup item Laura Geller Baked Color True Blush in Catalina. I got this in my QVC Beauty Bash goody bag back in January and although Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blushes are my favourite, for powder blush Laura Geller is a great go to.
Catalina is a gorgeous mauve-pink with a beautiful gentle shimmer. It’s a lovely silk powder texture and the pigment is very easy to build up. Laura’s baked formulations actually start off as creams, they are then put on a terracotta tile and baked in an oven for 24 hours. It also has skincare ingredients like White Tea and Centella Asiatica which are antioxidants.
I would say this particular shade is best for paler skin tones, I am not sure that the colour would really show on richer skin tones. The finish is sateen with a shimmer that is really pretty, not over the top and glittery. I had to pop on the flash to pick it up so if you are wary of shimmer this would be a good place to start.
This size is 1.8g, the standard size is 6.5g, I find I don’t need much to get the a good result. Like I said earlier, you can build the pigment so if you do want more of a dramatic look it is easy to do. Perfect colour for Summer, you can just use a small amount for a sheer pretty effect.
Laura Geller makeup is available from http://www.qvcuk.com, her blushes are £20.00 individually or £24.00 with a brush.
Till next time,
