Anyway! Inside the beautiful tin with the morbid name lies a rather alarmingly red gel blush. The texture is not unlike C.O. Bigalow's Rose Salve, maybe just a smidge harder. Whilst it looks rather intimidating in the pot, on skin diffuses into a sheer natural flush.
Having barely mastered cream blushes, I knew I was tempting fate with a gel tint. Applying with fingers made a big mess of my foundation, so in the end I used my Sonia Kashuk flat top brush which always makes short work of applying and blending cream type products. The result is a very natural, I-just-came-in-from-a-romp-in-the-cold flush.
The finish is non-sticky but doesn't ever really dry down completely so setting with a powder is imperative. I actually quite like layering this under my No. 13 Laduree Cameo Blush.
My only quibbles with the product is that: a. I'm not really fond of the balmy finish; and b. lasting time is like 3-4 hours max.
Verdict: A nice little multi-tasker but not really for girls with oily skin or for those who want long-lasting wear.
On me, it swatched more raspberry than red.
FOTD with Blood On on cheeks and lips. Sorry I am going through a bit of a spotty phase right now.
Never take yourself too seriously.
