Today I want to share with you a lovely long-wearing powder blush I received from IT Cosmetics – their Vitality Cheek Flush Blush Stain in Matte Sweet Apple. This vibrant pink-red gives a believable just-out-from-the-cold flush that lasts throughout the day.Matte Sweet Apple starts out relatively sheer and natural, but with a few swipes, it can be built up to the intensity you see in the pan. The most similar shade I own is Lippy Girl Bitch Slap, which is brighter and more red. The powder is finely-milled and smooth. It has a drier texture, which seems true of many long-wearing blushes. On me, it lasts all day with minimal fading. However, I may not be the best judge of wear time, as powder blushes usually last at least most of the day on me, with varying degrees of fading.
Along with this blush, IT Cosmetics also sent their French Boutique Luxe Blush Brush, which I included in my recent Top 5 New Products I’m Loving Blog Collaboration. This may be my favorite blush brush. If you’re someone who struggles with blush placement, I can’t recommend this enough. The shape of this brush makes application easy. I used to apply with one brush, blend with another, but this brush is all I need.
