review isadore

A few weeks ago when I was in bed with the flu, I done a bout of online window shopping (as you'll have seen if you read my Sickbed Wishlist post).  On the list was a Kevyn Aucoin cream blush, but I thought I'd be after the shade Liquifuschia.  All I can say is that I'm glad I popped into Space NK and didn't order online because I preferred this one in real life much more.  Liquifuschia was a lot brighter, and I liked that when I blended Isadore out it looked more like a natural rosy glow.

For quite a while now, I've been liking the more natural makeup look and this was an ideal product to help me achieve that.  In the pan and in the swatch it's quite a 'Barbie' pink.  But when it's blended into a light wash on the cheeks, with my skin tone it looks like I'm naturally blushing which I love.  I think it would suit most skin tones, very pale to mid tones really, I'm not sure if it would maybe get a little chalky looking on darker skinned beauties - put there is a gorgeous red shade called Patrice which would be beautiful.

It's very creamy to the touch, which makes application easy.  I just dot a little on to where I want the colour and blend with my stippling brush.  My favourite thing about this cream blush though is that it doesn't leave your skin looking sticky or wet, as some cream products do.  This settles into the skin and while it gives off a glowing finish it's not obvious on the skin, just making your complexion appear brighter overall.  This retails for £19.00 and I think it's safe to say, a few more shades could be working their way into my stash in the near future!
