TBS Matte and Shimmer Cheek Colour in Pink

I recently destroyed my bronzer :( - it all decided to crumble to pieces in the tub.

So I picked up the Cheek Colour to give a go. Now a bronzer last me ages, because I'm pale I don't like to use a lot - so I thought I would try this in the pink and skip the whole bronzer bit (I've got Bare Minerals Warmth and Lily Lolo - Waikiki, mineral bronzers anyway!)

What I like about this, was that its Matte and Shimmer (I have BIG ISSUES with overally shimmery products)

(broken a bit of already!)
Done a quick picture of it just swatched on my hand, as well as blended.

(blended in)

The end result is a nice pinkie/goldie colour, which is perfect for the summer and my skintone. Just perks up my skin nicely for a sun kissed look.

Overall - Even though I was actually replacing a bronzer, I've ended up with a great cheek colour for summer.

@WarPaintGuru - I know what you mean!

@iphishere - I think you could if you wanted the pink tone on your cheeks, otherwise they have a bronze which is more of a bronzer but without so much shimmer!

The color completely blends in with your skin for a natural glow. Very nice!

I have a serious weakness for anything with the words "shimmer" or "highlighter" in the name and then never end up wearing them because my skin is on the oily side and it doesn't help. lol There are a couple good ones I really like that don't leave me with that effect, though...Milani bronzer in Honey and Benefit Moonbeam! I think you made the perfect choice for you.

Also, we've tagged you in the "I <3 Your Blog" award thingy that's going around. :)

I love blush! I'm pretty pale in winter and use NARS Laguna Bronzer and NARS Orgasm blush together. It works really well together!!
