Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in POP

I’m so lucky! I recently won the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in POP and the Waterbrush from Β the lovely Lou’s blog giveaway. A fantastic blog and if you haven’t already, you should really check it out.

I was super excited about this for two reasons, one because it’s always fab to win something and two, because I’ve been wanting to try one of Daniel Sandler’s Watercolour Blush’s for ages now!

POP is a limited edition shade created to raise awareness and funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, so a very worthy cause indeed.

A beautiful pink shade with a silver sparkle.

The colour is buildable but you only need a very small amount. What you see above is enough for just over one cheek. It’s very easy to overdo as well.

I have to say that using this and the brush has taken quite a lot of practice for me to get right! I’ve put too much on, far too little, blended it out too far, not blended enough… but I’ve got it just about right now I think. Personally, I’ve found the blusher easier to apply with my finger tips. The brush is fab but I love it with more creamy blushers, it works extremely well with Mac Cremeblend brushes. Lets not forget the brush was designed to work with the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush so I think you can safely say it’s just me that prefers to use fingers, I just find the watery texture easier to work with my fingers, whereas I love a brush to work with thicker textures.

It’s a gorgeous colour a really lovely shade but I feel that in real life it’s a bit more obvious than my pictures show, the last one gives the best representation of the colour. It’s gorgeous and the shimmer is subtle but gives life and glow to your skin.

Gorgeous.

So a huge huge thank you to LouΒ and if you’d like to get the blusher and brush for yourself then you can find them over at www.escentual.com.

    I can’t use the brush either! I find it really difficult to get the hang of – I either can’t get the motion right or the angle or… It’s just a mess! I much prefer using my fingers! If you want a lovely brush to use with this blush, the Illamasqua Highlighter Brush, it really works beautifully, it’s just the right size πŸ™‚

      Ah not just me then! I don’t know if it’s just me or if I just really prefer to use my fingers with it. Either way its fine because I use the brush for other things. I will look up the Illamasqua Highlighter brush though. I quite like using foundation brushes to apply cheek colour and then blending out with a big fluffy or fingers!

    Love this colour, already a firm fav in my kit. I love the brush too. Hmm how odd you don’t get on with it. I use a patting motion. Thanks for sharing, you look lovely x

    Oh that looks lovely on you so natural!! I must try this too! Thanks for the pos x

    I agree with KennethSoh, use the brush to dab the colour onto your cheeks.

    Add a drop to the back of your hand, dab the brush onto you hand to get some colour, and then dab onto your cheeks. Layer for a more intense colour. You’ll find the brush a lot more manageable then.

    Dabbing is much better than a sweeping motion for both the watercolour blushers and the water brush. x
