The newest product release from Makeup Geek is the line of blushes in thirteen shades, of which I was sent three: Hanky Panky, Honeymoon, and Rendezvous.
Hanky Panky is a reddened pink blush that brightens cheeks and runs the gorgeous line between bright and natural.
I was at first thinking Honeymoon would make a great tiny bit of nude color to finish off an otherwise colorful or intense look. It certainly does that, but on my olive skin the pink undertones stand out after I apply it. Honeymoon has become a surprise new favorite shade and I find myself reaching for it a lot lately.
For a purple-toned blush, Rendezvous is unique. It is by no means a fall plum shade and has enough pink tones to wear year round. But somehow it still remains purple. I love it!
I’ve been watching a lot of the show Suits lately. As is typical, I am now obsessed with the female characters’ makeup. It hit me Friday night (on episode five of that night’s binge…introvert alert) that these are very much Rachel Zane blush shades. I’m in Season 2 of Suits and Meghan Markle’s character has been sporting a subdued Radiant Orchid lipstick with a blush similar to Hanky Panky or Rendezvous. That was the inspiration for the look today – sophisticated, but still colorful. Do you ever find yourself obsessing over makeup in TV shows? Tell me which ones I need to watch!
Back to Makeup Geek… All three of these blushes are soft with Honeymoon applying more smoothly than the other two. None of them are patchy, but Hanky Panky and Rendezvous need a few extra seconds of blending. They are both matte finishes and leave a stain so the extra circular brush strokes are well worth it. With all three blushes, I find myself using a minute amount of product. Pigmentation abounds so I start small and build.
Have you tried the blush line from Makeup Geek? What are your thoughts? I have my eye on Spellbound and Romance next.
