Review: Too Faced Blush In La Vie En Rose


To be honest, I was never captivated by Too Faced. I guess I was too busy lusting after other make-up brands and products to give any thought to Too Faced. A close friend of mine came from Jeddah for a week in January, and she bought me some goodies. It's the tiniest things that show how well a person knows you or your taste, and this was one of those moments. I saw this blush and it was love at first sight. It is so ME!This has been my go-to blush since the last month and a half.

The packing is so cute, I don't have the heart to throw it away. I love the polka dots <3! The first time I opened it the blush smelt strongly of roses. It smelled so good, but after weeks of using it the scent has died down a little (this doesn't happen with the Benefit blushes).

The blush itself is a pretty bright, blue toned pink with gold shimmer in it. The golden shimmer reminds me of Nars Orgasm, but this blush is more pinker than Orgasm, and more pigmented. One of my favorite things about this blush is that it goes on sheer, but is (very) build-able. Even those with darker skin tones can use it for a pretty wash of color as well.

Don't be afraid of the shimmer though, even though it does transfer on the to the cheeks it doesn't look too much. It just adds a bit of a natural glow. I find that the shimmer in this blush diffuses when I blend it. For those who aren't big fans shimmery blushes (unlike me) can brush the shimmer away when blending it.

Even though it might look intense in the pan, it is a gorgeous pink that looks very delicate and doll like on the cheeks. I've used it on days when I've been out all day, and it lasts for hours on my oily skin (winter is kind to me. It keeps the oils at bay).

I checked the Too Faced website and this blush is on sale for 9$ (original price 20$).
