Blusher Saves My Face -- Even On Bad Skin Days
June 18, 2008
Mineral blushes are the best thing ever invented. Seriously. For someone like me, who has dry skin and periodically breaks out on her cheeks, they give a lovely, natural pop of color without the cakiness of typical powders or the irritating oiliness of crèmes.
Don’t get me wrong – on good skin days, I wear and love powders and crèmes. But on my tetchy skin days, only mineral blushes seem to do the trick.
One that I’ve just discovered is the Magic Mosaic Multi-Colored Custom Blush from Physicians Formula ($10.95). It’s hypoallergenic, fragrance and oil free, and best of all, it’s made up of little “petals” of color on a spectrum from light pink to berry rose. This means that I can mix the shades to my heart’s content, and adjust and deepen the color as summer approaches and my face tans (despite my SPF 50 sunscreen, of course).
