I have been a fan of this Daniel Sandler blusher for many years now. I am also a huge fan of Daniel’s. I was lucky enough to work with him on a photoshoot years ago – I think his range was coming out around that time, and I’ve loved his products ever since.
Firstly this blusher lasts – when you apply it it doesn’t sink into the skin as so many blushers do – it stays all day, this is due to it’s silicone content. It is in liquid form, you only need a couple of drops. It’s oil free, doesn’t clog pores and contains both nourishing Vitamin E and Jojoba.
I’ve never tried the ‘Watercolour Brush’ that goes alongside it, although I’ve just been reading very good reviews about it online. I have always applied it with my fingers. I put a couple of drops on the back of my hand, and apply directly to the apples of the cheeks.
Because of its consistency, it looks incredibly natural. It looks great over foundation, or on bare skin.
It’s not suggested to do so, as such, but I often put it on my lips too. This product won Best Blusher 2010 at the Cosmopolitan Awards, so I’m not alone in thinking it’s fantastic.
I have broken down the shades very briefly here, there are much more detailed descriptions of them at the websites recommended below.
Cherub – My personal favourite. Sheer, pastel pink that’s perfect for fair to medium skin tones that want a flush of colour
Gentle – Sheer, nude beige and peach. Perfect for fair to medium skin tones.
Flush – Great for fair to medium skin tones.
Spicey – A mix of sheer terracotta plus a pink shimmer for medium to dark skin tones.
Dare – A rich ruby red – ideal for darker skin tones. There is no shimmer in this shade
Truth – Barely there nude, peach shade. Brightens pale skin, but good for fair to medium skin tones that get high colour. Helps to disguise skin that reddens easily rather than accentuating it as most blush colours would.
Icing – Suitable for all skin types as a highlighter. Cheekbones, eyelids, browbones. I often highlight very slightly down the centre of my nose too
I just emailed a lady at Daniel Sandler to check on stockists, and she said they would happily send a blusher to one of my subscribers in the shade of their choice, so maybe leave a comment below on what your ideal shade would be and I will get her or my sister to pick one.
The price for Daniel’s Watercolour Blush is £15.50 for 15ml.
