I’m feeling the neutrals this week….maybe it’s the lack of sunshine. I find something so soothing about nudes, taupes, soft pinks & peaches, and of course, beige. Coco Chanel said “I take refuge in beige because it’s natural” and I can totally relate. The soft natural look is always flattering and it is true that as we age (sigh) when it comes to cosmetics, less is more. It’s true. I’m with Coco on this. The truth is, I pretty much wear only neutral make up. So, I thought it was time to write about my number one favourite powder blush. Lancome Miel Glacé is the perfect color falling right in between peach and pink- almost terracotta but not as orange. And it is so sheer, it is almost foolproof. The kind of beige that looks good on almost every skin tone. Goof-proof.
The packaging is typical Lancome- a sleek and simple black and gold rectangular compact with a mirror and a small brush. I probably won’t use the brush but it could possibly be used in a cosmetic emergency. The powder itself is very milled with what looks like a soft shimmer but I mean really soft. It is barely noticeable on the skin. According to Lancome it is oil free, oil absorbing and moisture balancing. Win, win and win! Healthy glow in a compact. A little goes a fairly decent way and it will be awhile before I hit pan.
It’s the perfect every day go to blush and very easy to apply. It has average lasting power- if I’m going out I have to touch up but I’m good for most of the day. I use a fluffy Sephora powder brush and lightly dust the apples of my cheeks and, voilà! I’m rosy cheeked with a perfect glowing complexion and ready to go. You know, pretty much just like this Breck Girl. Not bad for $38.00….
