Summer may not be over just yet! Add some colour with Lancome‘s newest release. A super vibrant cushion blushLancome | Cushion Blush Subtil Lancome | Cushion Blush Subtil

This arrived on my doorstep a couple of weeks ago along with the Teint Idole Ultra Cushion*. I knew I was receiving the brand new foundation but I had no idea Lancome were sending me their Cushion Blush Subtil* too. They treat me so well!

I’ll review the foundation soon but I just had to share my thoughts on this little beauty.

I’ve tried a couple of liquid blushes but never in a cushion format. I feel like a lot of makeup brands are using this ‘cushion’ sponge technology in their makeup now. I must admit, personally I prefer a dewy finish so these cushion products are right up my street. Not only do they look pretty, they seem more pigmented and set better too.

As you can see on the swatches above, that’s just one press on the sponge. Look how pigmented it is?! The good thing about the sponge is you can add as little or as much as you want. It’s so easy to build the shade you desire with this.

Sometimes with powders, you can easily over do it and well too much blush is not a good look! This however, you can add just the right amount.

The Cushion Blush Subtil comes in six shades that feature sorbet, roses and corals like this one! I got the shade ‘Splash Orange‘ and for me its the perfect coral. It will look lovely on tanned skin and I match this with a golden bronzer!

Lancome call this liquid blush ‘vibrancy and freshness in a portable cushion’. It aims to instantly refresh your makeup, with buildable intensity – honestly I think it does just this! It kind of is like a little tint you can apply while you’re doing your makeup, or as a touch up through the day.

It sets so easily and quickly over existing makeup which is vital for on the go!

So far I’ve used this a few times, I guess I’m trying to make the most of it before the weather gets colder. This is definitely a summer shade for me but they do have warmer tones that I can see myself wearing for the next few months.

Would you try a blush like this?

    Definitely I think the sponge products have a really different finish to normal
