I tried out my new Estee Lauder cheek gel and I wanted to share my thoughts!
Estee Lauder describes this product as: "Blush with a rush of cellophane-sheer gel color.
So unique, your cheeks have never blushed liked this before. Sheer, buildable, water-light gel. Simply pump sparingly on fingertips, then
I got color #2 Pink Patent ($28), there is also a "red" a "burgandy" and a "purple". If you follow me on Instagram you saw the red next to the pink on my hand. I liked the red color but thought the pink was more wearable for me, if you have warm skin the red or purple would be gorgeous. The burgandy will flatter deeper skin tones.
Here I am with no blush.
The way I have been testing it is just wearing concealer were needed and then applying the gel to a "clean" cheek. I do of course have on moisturizer and sunscreen. But I don't apply any powder over the gel.
I just put a pump of the gel on my hand and then use my Real Techniques stippling blush to apply it to my cheek. In the picture is the actually amount I use and it covers both cheeks, a little goes a long way!
You can see the stippling action - I then rub it in with my fingers. It is really sheer but provides a lovely wash of color - it remindes me of how watercolor paints are in consistancy (if that makes sense).
And there is is all blended in - super natural flush! I really like it - it lasted 8 hours with minimal fading. I believe it's a Limited Edition product for summer so check out Estee Lauder.com!
