So I KNOW that i've been posting only reviews lately, but it's because I don't have anything else to post about! I mean, I really haven't been wearing "outfits" besides my PJs and stuff. I haven't done any makeup because I need to still unpack it. I still have to unpack my jewelry and makeup stuff and blehhh. It's going to take a while. I'll get it done by Monday b/c my BF is coming up to see me that day... I also need to wash my makeup brushes and also get a new storage system for le makeup and le perfumes. ugh.
Anyway. I bought this blush recently from CVS (yay.) b/c it was 6 dollars off and it had a 3 dollar off coupon. Actually, I ripped the coupon off another product (but it's okay because it was still good for my blush!). K, I'm actually a thief and a bad person. Not really. But okay.
What They say:
- Ultra-soft and blendable blushing powder features a fresh and vibrant mix of blushing tones infused with a pop of color to create a healthy glow.
- Multi-reflective pearls provide a soft iridescence to highlight contour and add radiance to cheeks.
- Infused with our Happy Boost Blend, featuring Happy Skin and Euphoryl, natural plant extracts which have been shown to promote a feeling of happiness by mimicking the effect of Endorphins and helping protect the skin from environmental stress.
- The sweet scent of Violet provides a feeling of joy each time you apply.

|No foundation or powder on. So bottom cheek color near the dimple is my natural skin pigmentation and the pink stuff is my blush.|
Texture: The blush is firmly pressed so when you swirl your brush in it, it's not going to fall apart. You do get color (I mean obviously; look at the swatch above) so it's not like you have to use a drill hammer to get some pigment. Excellent.
Wear: Few hours tops. I find that if I apply this at 10:00 am or so, it'll be gone by 6:00 pm. It does have some "shimmer" but it's not very noticeable. I'm not a glitterazi kinda person. I actually like satin finishes better. It didn't break me out, but I'm also not a breaking out kinda person on my cheeks. I'm not a breaking out kinda person in general. Unless I'm under a lot of stress.
Weird misc stuff: It smells nice. It also doesn't make me happier when I apply it or use it.
Price: An extravagant price for a not-so- luxe product. PF is one of the more "HE" d/s brands. It retails on the website for 11.95 while at CVS, its 14.50 (uhh wtf?) It averages around 12 dollars most places. 14.50 is too expensive for a d/s product. Anything over 10 dollars is too expensive for a d/s product. It's the drugstore goddamnit. This isn't ulta. It's CVS. So I'm glad that I picked it up for 5.50.
Recommended: If you happen to see it on clearance or at a low low price and your skin is of a vampiric quality, go for it. For people whose skin tends to be more coffee or mocha like, skip it.
