NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Review: Josie Maran Coconut Watercolour Cheek Gelee

When my parents left for New York I sat down in front of the Sephora website and whittled my extensive U.S wish list down to a fair few products. The Josie Maran Watercolour Cheek Gelee was at the top of my list and after much imaginary beard scratching, I decided the shade "get away red" was the one for me.

On application it's sheer, but build-able and the pinky-red shade gives a natural flush to the cheeks. I find this one's best applied with a synthetic brush for more even coverage - for me this is the Real Techniques stippling brush which blends the product perfectly. It' important not to go overboard with this one as it has amazing staying power - product over-load is slightly harder to undo than normal, but don't sweat too much, a bit of blending with your foundation brush can often help the situation.

In the photo above I've applied a light layer, but it can be built up with a brush or fingers for a more pigmented look. The cream/water formula gives a lovely healthy sheen, and if you're a fan of the dewy look this is definitely a blush that helps to add a dewy glow to the cheeks. It can also be dabbed onto the lips as a stain if you're in need of an emergency lip product, so it's even multi purpose. If you're off to the states, or you have a friend who you can rope into taking your own extensive wish list, then pop this right at the top of your list!

  5. It looked very lovely and natural on you! I've only tried Topshop and NYX's cream blushes. Have never tried any other from different brand. I was afraid it will contribute more oiliness to my skin (oily-combo skin alert) but I do like the look of it on people most of the times.

  20. Hi Hello October :)

    I am a massive fan of creamy or liquid blushers but I find it quite difficult to blend most of the time, it looks patchy on me.

    Is that one quite easy to blend?

    Thank you
