I have an on-again-off-again relationship with neutral blushes.  We are currently “on again.”  And as such, I thought it would be nice to feature one with a look that is very wearable.  Sophisticated but with softness and a touch of sparkle, this look is rather sweetly defined.

Looking Back:  I happened to do lip swatches with the same look.  The eye and lip colors pair beautifully with NARS Dressed to Kill.  But then again…I do love a bold lip!

Which palette would you sport…sweetly defined?  Or something a little more intense?
