This hits counters on 1st of August and it’s everything I love in a blush. I tend to steer clear of powder blush, instead using either Bobbi sticks or Becca Creme Blush for their sheerness and ‘hint of colour’ abilities. I’ve just tested the Guerlain Russian Doll Radiant Blush which comes out of the tall pump tube a creamy bright pink – it reminds me, in fact, of some liquid blush my grandmother had from Coty, so on first sight it seems an old fashioned shade. However, once on, it gives the prettiest hint of pink that’s very natural and gorgeous over a slight tan. It dries really quickly although the formula has enough flexibility that it gives you time to apply properly…..I can see why it’s called Russian Doll, too. If you took the look to the extreme by layering you could easily have statement round apple cheeks and I think it will easily translate to next season as a ‘healthy flush’ over paler, winter skin.
