I’ve been reviewing a couple of lippies from SAX Cosmetics for the past few weeks, and now it’s time to move on to something else. I’ve had nothing but praise for the lip products, but how does their Complexion Blusher fare? Do read on to find out.
SAX finely micronised, long-wearing blusher provides a natural luminescence and blends effortlessly onto your cheeks. The formula is rich in vitamins to moisturise and condition your skin. Paraben Free.
I had the opportunity to try out the blush in Rosy Glow. It’s a cool pink shade that I believe suits lighter skin tones. For something that looks as though it’s packed with pigment on the product, it’s actually very sheer. In fact, the swatch you see is actually after 5-6 hard swipes of product on my skin.
It does look pretty on the skin, I’ll give you that. If you’re into building up the colour on your cheeks bit by bit, this is the blush for you. I guess I’ve been so used to highly-pigmented blush that packs a punch of colour on the first swipe that this took me some time to get used to, especially since I don’t like powdering my cheeks so much. There’s also a lot of fallout of powder when you swipe the blush with your makeup brush, which creates a mess on the palette (then again, there’s always that thing I use to clean fallout with, so I’m good ).
One thing I will say though, the brush that comes with the blush is good. Unlike most drugstore brand makeup brushes and applicators that come with the products, most of which are completely useless, this one’s actually soft on the skin. In fact, I can boldly say that I have chucked a couple of brushes that came with Chanel blushes (the Jouse Contraste brushes are terrible), but I would gladly keep the one with the SAX blush.
I didn’t photograph myself with the blush on, because it’s so sheer, it wouldn’t show in the pictures. I tend to use this more as a highlighter, especially over my matte or cream blushes.
SAX Cosmetics Complexion Blushers comes in 2 shades: Rosy Glow and Coy. Each blush retails at AU$16.95 and is available at selected pharmacies (click for stockists).
