Sunday Riley Blush in Blushing

blush-blushing-2400

I can’t believe I’ve haven’t already written about Sunday Riley’s powder blush in Blushing. It’s been a staple in my makeup routine for the past two years or more. It’s one of those perfect basics that’s worth the investment, because it’s incredibly versatile and it lasts a very long time.

Here’s an official product photograph. Blushing is a very natural rose shade; I’ve seen it described as “cool,” but I think it’s closer to being a true neutral.

The packaging is Sunday Riley’s usual black-and-gold compact (with a mirror).

Over the past year or so I’ve learned to treat my skin more carefully, with a special emphasis on gentle cleansing.

Product Review: Sunday Riley Prismasilk Eye Color in Lady Godiva

It’s turned out to be a big week for nudity here on Tinsel Creation: first Lady Gaga, then Helmut Newton, and now an eyeshadow named for the folk heroine who rode her horse naked through the streets of her city in order to gain tax cuts for its citizens. The hot weather must be getting to me.

Product Review: Sunday Riley JUNO Transformative Lipid Serum

Can I resist a product named for the queen of the gods? I can not. Well, I don’t know for certain whether Sunday Riley had ancient Roman mythology on her mind when she created Juno, but that’s what the name means to me, in any case.

To start at the beginning: when Juno made its appearance as the signature product in Sunday Riley’s skincare line, I did manage to ignore it for a little while. It was very expensive, after all, and I didn’t really have a clear idea of the company yet, and I was still leery of using oil-based products on my face.
