Having a mature skin can sometimes bring problems with cosmetics. We have to be a little more careful...
So when I was asked to review this new cream to powder blusher I jumped at the chance. The new Vincent Longo range has launched from America to the UK and is available at Cult Beauty
When choosing a blusher or bronzer for that matter, there are points to consider when choosing for a more mature skin.
Don't go over the top with anything too sparkly . I tend to find the more matt the better.
A foundation with a hint of moisturiser will set and sit far better on a mature skin than a powdery matt chalky foundation. This will help your blusher sit on your face far better and not sink into your wrinkles.
Cream or Matt? I use both , I find cream gives a far more dewy finish and it's not dry looking.
This blusher from Vincent Longo is a cream-to-powder form .The colour I have chosen is called Terra Dew. I apply it with my fingertips Just onto the apple of my cheeks to keep it natural looking and it feels and looks creamy. Whilst blending it reverts to a more dryer finish so it doesn't look oily. I'm converted!
The blusher contains botanical seaweed extract and Vitamin E Both of which are hydrating ingredients. I was dubious about ordering a colour on-line but it has turned out true to colour which I was really pleased about .
My Amerian readers, you may already know of the Longo brand. It is available to you here
I have to say, looking at the website, I'm really impressed. I found latex free eyelash adhesive! It's here I have wanted to try some natural looking false eyelashes, but have not been able to due to my Latex allergy. Bonus ! Sadly I will have to ship this from America though. The whole range looks pretty impressive, especially their eyeshadows and makeup brushes. If the blusher is anything to go by, I will definitely be interested in more.
Do take a look at the brand and let me know what you think.
