Simple packaging but functional
Like the lipsticks, Dainty Doll powder blushers are in simple black packaging. It does pick up marks very easily, but I love that the compact is so slim (it fits easily into my make up bag), it has a mirror, & it clicks shut so I'm not worried about it breaking in my bag.
It can be applied sheerly, to reduce shimmer!
You Are My Sunshine is a peachy-pink blusher, with gold shimmer. It's definitely a 'warm' blusher, which is perfect for adding colour to your cheeks & will still look gorgeous with a tan. The golden shimmer is quite apparent though - It's not overly glittery, but it is pretty illuminating. I love that, but if you're after more of a matte look, you might want to avoid.
Obligatory 'here is me smiling & wearing product' picture.
It applies really nicely & is easy to blend (which does tone down the shimmer). Lasting power isn't bad - After about 8 hours I still had some colour on my face, but it obviously wasn't as fresh as when applied. I really like You Are My Sunshine, & happily wear it during the day, & on a night out. I'm not really too into blushers, so I'm never enthusiastic about spending a lot on one, but I'm tempted to pick up a back-up seeing as it's so good for the price!
It is now once again available on Fragrance Direct for £1.99 if you like what you see.
