I am excited to share one of my first and favourite blushes: the Rimmel LondonBlush in Amber. I bought it on sale at Shoppers Durg Mart for $3.59 and was one of the makeup products that I actually managed to finish. Recently, after a round of high end blushes, I’ve reached back for a second round of this blush.
Rimmel LondonBlush in Amber is one that I’ve completely gone through; in fact I’ve actually gone through 2 pans of these already. It doesn’t look like much on the pan because it can be somewhat intimidating since it’s a matte orange-brown color. When applied, it’s less intimidating because it comes off a bit more sheer. The sheerness doesn’t mean that it’s a bad quality product, just that you can control how much it goes on the skin.
This is the matte color on the pan. I know it doesn’t appear very special or in any way amazing. On an NC25-30 skintone though, it comes off a lot better on the skin.
This is what it looks like swatched heavily on my arm. As I said, though it’s on the sheerer side, it’s actually fairly pigmented and can definitely built up on the face. It’s not sheer in the sense that it has a bad pigmentation, it’s actually better since you can use it in a variety of different ways (as a bronzer, or blush).
I am definitely in love with Rimmel LondonBlush in Amber and will be repurchasing it again because it’s very work appropriate, and also looks amazing for pictures because it doesn’t have any shimmers and won’t flash on pictures.
