InStyle: Does Universal Blush really work?

Time Inc. Digital Studio

 

 

Universal Blush?

THE CLAIM This bright pink cheek color is the first powder blush that adjusts to your skin tone, taking the guesswork out of picking the perfect shade.

THE EXPERT SAYS “In fact, it isn’t actually self-adjusting, but the color is just translucent enough to blend in with any skin tone,” says Ni’kita Wilson. “The shade is bright, but the base that’s used is not titanium dioxide, so there’s no chalkiness.”

OUR VERDICT We tested the blush on five people (with complexions ranging from milky white to deep mocha), and amazingly, it gave a flattering, blushing-from-within glow to everyone. The color was bright enough to show up on very dark skin yet sheer enough that it didn’t look clownish on pale complexions.

I would have never thought with my pale complexion I could wear such bright colors.  Then I was sent a sample to review of the L’Occitane Pivoine Flora in Creamy Rose. The blush is the most gorgeous creamy bright rose shade and gives my cheeks the perfect color without every overpowering my skin. The pallette has a light pink shade to see as a highlighter.
