Rimmel Lasting Finish Santa Rose Blush

Rimmel Lasting Finish Santa Rose Blush

Shady packaging comprised of cheap plastic and a far-too-easy-to-snap lid aside, this blush is amazing. A tiny powder version of NARS Penny Lane no less, the absolute dupe for NARS Douceur (although perhaps a tad pinker) and a blush I can't believe I've overlooked for so long.

The soft, buttery texture of Rimmel Lasting Finish Santa Rose Blush makes it effortless to blend evenly into the skin, providing a gorgeous dusky peach-pink hue with slight brown undertones. The formula is highly pigmented requiring only a little to be lightly dusted onto the cheeks for a natural finish said to last up to six hours. On my fair complexion I find a light hand is needed or else the colour can appear rather muddy, more brown than pink, and more than a little unflattering. Dusted onto the cheeks the colour pay off is astounding, it warms up a pale complexion and is neutral enough to compliment any look; I've been using this blush regularly and it's quickly become one of the favourites in my collection.

  4. This is one of my favourite blushers, I used mine up around three years ago and for some reason never went back to pick up another. I think I should correct this as for the price it is unbeatable.

  5. Such a pretty color!


  6. I have to admit I never look at blushes at the drugstore... But this is so pretty I might just go and take a look!

  7. I've always wanted to pick this, don't know why I haven't!
    I think I'm going to have to with the 3for2 going on at Boots! x

  8. the problem with this is....i have to have it HAHAHA. le sigh, i keep wanting higher end blushes to collect but i'm alwys sidelined by some of the awesome formulas that you can find at the drugstore and then how in the world can i possibly justify buying a $50 blush when i can find something comparable for $10. and how can i possibly add more blushes to my stash when i've already got like 20..... seriously. the struggle...its real.

  9. I love the shade of this, I've been wanting to try it for ages but it's one of those things I always end up putting back down in Boots. You can always find an excellent bargain in Boots! x


  10. I always see this and then think oh I don't need it, but I think I've been convinced... It's such a gorgeous shade!

  14. I always struggle to look past the packaging of products. I feel like there are so many products out there that there must be some that are beautiful products as well as living in pretty packaging.
