January Essentials – Guerlain Blush Éclat – 07 Cherry Blossom

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 6 - 2010

I know, I know… my head is telling me…

“That’s gonna be expensive.  You’re gonna get it and then look at the pattern for a few months perhaps finally drumming up the courage to tarnish it sometime next November”.

But, but just look at it!  Is it art? Is it makeup?  I don’t care… I want it!

    So true, I’d avoid using it purely ’cause I wouldn’t want to ruin it! It’s like those Clinique blush things, I tend not to work the product into my brush only because I don’t want to mess up the design of blush. Maybe it’s good, ’cause then… we don’t run out! :P

    It is lovely no doubt. But I wouldn’t buy it, purely because of the brush.
    I wish companies would stop putting a tiny little useless brush in blushes, bronzers and illuminators. Any powders actually.
    I’d much rather have more product and a cleaner looking compact, than a brush I’m just going to throw away.

    • @Lucy – I suppose they must be useful for some or surely they wouldn’t keep adding them… but I agree with you, on a personal level… they’re a waste of time!

    its always a struggle to be such a artistic beauty product as it would feel that its so hard for you to use them on regular basis. So like you say, but them now and admire for months before finally use..
