Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush Cherub

Daniel Sandler is a brand I've lusted after for too long, so when I was recently offered the chance to review some of his products I jumped at the chance. The watercolour blush is something I've had my eyes on for ages but thought other things were more worthy of my money. This retails at £14.50 on most sites which is kind of justifiable.

This is what Daniel Sandler had to say about the product:
"Multi award winning Watercolour fluid blusher contains Vitamin E and Jojoba to enhance application and nourish skin.

Daniel says "I chose a silicone based oil free formulation as it doesn't clog pores and suits every skin type. The silicone makes it virtually rub-off proof plus water-resistant. Lifts all skin types with an instant radiance".

I have read quite a few things about the Watercolour Blush but decided to completely make my own mind up once I've tried it because we all have different tastes after all. The worst thing about this that springs to mind as soon as you open the bottle and start to apply, is just how runny the product is. You have to seriously shake this thing, and I mean a lot! Once that's complete, the shade Cherub that I got is really pretty and blends easily. It's a bit like a stain if you're not careful, like most liquid products that sit on the skin, so blend quickly.

I apply the blush by putting a few drops onto the back of my hand then using my Real Techniques stippling brush, I stipple this onto my cheeks. I've tried purely using my fingers but the brush method seems easier. I'd say the shade Cherub is for paler/medium skin tones but probably won't show up on any skin tones darker than that.

I'm just not sure if I really love this. The lasting power isn't great on my skin, which is something I look for when buying most make-up products since I don't have time for touch-ups daily. I love the shade and do actually want to try other ones but for now I'm going to work on finding the best way to apply this for me! I've since watched Lisa Eldridge's liquid blush video (you should definitely watch her video by the way - she's amazing!) and learnt some new tips so will be sure to give them a try!

This has made me want to try a whole lot more of Daniel Sandler products! Have you tried the Watercolour Blush? Which is your favourite shade?

You can buy Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush from Hairtrade here for £14.50.

  1. -Beauty is only skin deep. If you go after someone just because she's beautiful but don't have anything to talk about, it's going to get boring fast. You want to look beyond the surface and see if you can have fun or if you have anything in common with this person.
