Estee Lauder Blush All Day in PlumThis lovely colour isn’t actually very plum – I see it as more of a medium-toned dusty pink. It looks wonderful dusted lightly on the apples of my cheeks, but can be layered into the contour to shape and sculpt as it colours. It works wonderfully with my fair Asian skintone, and yet I can see this blush working on anyone with skin ranging from very fair to medium-toned! It’s got a bit of sparkle, but only a tiny bit, and the glitter is tiny – not a disco-ball effect, but a glowing one.
I received this in a swap on MUA, so mine is GWP size. This should last fairly long, though – it’s become my almost-daily blusher, but I’ve barely put a dent in it. The colour payoff is just below average, which is actually nice – that means it can be applied very lightly with ease, and builds up well. Despite this, though, the blusher is very ‘solid’ – there is no crumbling or dust flying when I swipe it, so your don’t loose any product.
This is more expensive than I’d generally put out for a beauty product – $24.50 in the US, and probably therefore $30 in Canada – but if I can’t find this online for cheaper when I run out, I would actually rebuy at this price. Yes, folks… it is that good.
