Vincent Longo Cosmetics For A Softer Blush



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.

1)
    Don't go over the top with anything too sparkly . I tend to find the more matt the better.
2)
    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.
3)
    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.

  3. Hi Laurie
    I noticed this brand from Sephora, but never tried it. Enjoyed reading your review, as I use cream blush, and this looks like the perfect shade. With fair skin, it looks like it would still be subtle. I like the Hydro stick, as it reminds me of the NARS blush stick I use.
    Have a great week!
    stop by when you can

    1. Thank you Jess. This blush can be heavy or light. It blends really easy. Great for blogger photos when you know it has to be a little heavier to be seen x

  7. I prefer cream blushers because I like a more dewy finish. I'm using a kiko blush stick at the moment but I recently tried one from Clinique and really liked that too. I usually apply a little powder bronzer on top for a bit of warmth. The shade you chose is really nice.
