Hi babes! I am now back to my regular schedule and I finally had a little bit of money to buy some makeup. YAY! I heard lots of great things (mostly YT reviews) about La Femme Blushes. I was skeptical about purchasing anything from this brand because I wasn't sure if people were really in love with the price or the actual product. Some people swear by ELF and I am convinced it is because of the price and not so much the product. I have a love hate relationship with ELF. lol
I'm always excited to try new blush from companies other than NYX, MAC, Milani, Nars, Benefit etc.... These blushes cost me only $3.00 a piece. They also have pan refills for only $2.50 each. Great right? Below are the colors that you can choose from.
I didn't want to buy pan refills because than I would have to buy the empty palette. I wasn't even sure I was going to like the blushes so, I just bought four of the regular $3.00 blushes.I bought these blushes from www.MakeupMania.com. I ordered the blushes 10/24/11 and they arrived on 11/10/11. They do have really cheap shipping ($3.00) but it does take a while for your ordered to processed and shipped. Below are the colors I ordered.
Purple Passion Swatch
Final thoughts about the products: The pigmentation very bright and vivid. I did not use a lot of the product to get the right amount of color. The price is pretty good for the blush. I am used to spending $19.00-$30.00 for one blush and these blushes are just as pigmented as some of the higher end brands. The brand has a really good color selection and there are different finishes as well. I very rarely see that with some of the inexpensive cosmetic companies.
The only negative is the lasting power. I have very dry skin and blush can fade on me very quickly. With my Nars blushes, I would not have to reapply for 6-8 hours. Unfortunately, these blushes only lasted about an hour and half. :( I am going to try using them with a cream blush so that maybe I can get a couple more hours. Even with that said, I still think they are worth $2.50-$3.00. They are better than the $3.00 ELF blushes. I hope you all can try to check out this brand.
I am so glad to be back guys! I really miss interacting with your all. Much love
