coral red blusher, blush

Hi ladies, I know…I know…I said I would blog about the epic weekend that was #ABBW2011, but I have words constipation!  I do!  Every time I sit down to write about the weekend, I get lost and nothing comes out.  I am sorry.  But I have hyped it up so much that if I don’t write a fantastic post, I may disappoint…myself, mostly…sighs.  But this post is kinda close because I’m talking about a gorgeous product I bought at that epic weekend when I was at IMAT Sydney…Oh yes…

The title says it all.  I never knew blusher like this before until I set eyes on Ben Nye Coral Red Powder Rouge at IMATS Sydney.  I had been lusting after Nars Exhibit A but totally couldn’t afford it so when I saw the $10 price tag on Ben Nye blushers, I knew I had to have it.

Strong, bright warm rich orange red which only needs a light touch with a blusher brush to achieve a beautiful colour to warm up my cheeks.  I used this previously in the Urban Purple make-up video I did and you can see that I just lightly touched the blusher.

Admittedly, the packaging is not luxe.  The embossed BN doesn’t wow me.  But who cares when the shade is perfectly pigmented for me.

I am kicking myself now for not purchasing a couple more Ben Nye Powder Rouges when I had the chance.

Ben Nye Coral Red Powder Rouge, you had me at “Hello!”

What make-up products have had you at “Hello”?

    Lol @ ‘words constipation’. I do know that feeling well though!

    This blush looks great! I love my NARS Exhibit A but getting something just as pigmented for a third of the price is awesome!

    Hi there,
    If you’re looking for more Ben Nye, you can get it from John Wurzel in Oakleigh South on North Road
    I often use Ben Nye in my kit. I love the pigment (and the price). happy I found your blog.
