[unpaid/sample] I love the way that Ruby is just slowly building her brand – new products don’t come along every week, they come along when they’re good and ready. I think you’ll already know that Ruby Hammer is a make up artist and some of you might remember her brand Ruby & Millie being in Boots several years back so she is no stranger to the art of make up.
I’m having to grit my teeth and bear that bit of fluff on top of the palest blush – how did it get there! Grrr. As you can see, there are three shades (absolutely certain there will be more) in Nude, Red and Pink.
As you can see, the shades are intense – I can’t stress how little you need of the product to get some colour into your cheeks. You can either dab the stick to your cheeks – I’d strongly recommend you don’t just create a ‘stripe’ to blend in afterwards, tempting though it is – or sweep your blush brush over the colour and transfer over to your skin. The formula is made in Korea, apparently, and Korea does make up really, really well. It’s designed to be buildable so you can start with a tiny amount and add more if you feel you need to.
See what I mean about intensity? These look over bright for my currently pale skin (ill again – grr) but you can see how well those brighter shades are going to look if you have deeper tones. I cannot think of a tone that couldn’t wear these at all – the fact that it’s designed to be buildable means that it’s truly a universal product. You’d use the nude shade to add shimmer rather than actually as a blush. They’re £24 each which I would say was a bit at the top end if were not for the fact I think it will last and last because you need so little. It’s kind of a concentrate, I’d say. You can find them HERE.
