Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in Flush Review & Swatch

I have wanted to try Daniel Sandler's watercolour blush for ages. I always hear good things about it and the blogger in me was intrigued, very intrigued indeed! Hairtrade.com who is one of the leading UK's retailers of hair extensions, hair care and beauty products kindly sent me this to give a whirl.

I chose Flush*,  a lovely natural pink shade which looks darker in the packaging. It comes in a small bottle with 15mls inside which is actually bigger than I thought it would be. I know Daniel Sandler has a brush to compliment this product in the shape of an angled blusher brush but as I have a similar style from e.l.f I decided to use that instead. You can of course also use your fingers to blend.

You need to give the bottle a good shake before using as the colour and water separate. I applied a blob to the top of the brush before lightly applying to the apples of my cheeks - lightly is definitely the key here. The tiniest bit is all you need, it's not too noticeable in the picture but in real life it looks a look more pigmented on the cheeks. The liquid dries down to a powder finish and as the name suggests leaves you with a lovely flush of colour. Very natural and pretty.

It lasted  from the time I applied late morning to the time I took my makeup off around 8pm which is a  pretty decent amount of time. The bottle is also going to last for a very long time as you only need a teeny tiny bit!

I am really impressed with this blush and may have to try a few other shades out. You can purchase it from Hairtrade for £14.50

Have you tried anything from Daniel Sandler?

  3. It looks gorgeous!! I'm a bit afraid of liquid blushers, with the loveliness of this colour kind of makes me want to try it :)

    1. Ah don't be afraid! Just use a small amount and build up :)

  4. I REALLY want to try these out too but haven't yet! I think I am going to wait for the new shade to come out in December as you get a free DS brush :)
