Name: Blush in Summertime
Brand: Neve Cosmetics
From Neve Cosmetics’s website:
Its bronzy pink hue enhances a tan (even when it’s minimal!!), its slight iridescence sculpts the cheekbones, its multi-use formula allows it to be used as blush, eyeshadow and gloss!
What I liked:
– beautiful shade, enhances a tan
– good color payoff
– gives a radiant glow to cheeks
– soft texture, easy to blend
– mini size is huge
What I didn’t like:
– only lasts a few hours
– can be messy
– full size is quite expensive
– available only in Italy
Summer may be over *sighs* but that doesn’t mean that you have to give up that beautiful summer glow just yet. A bronzy pink blush with a gold iridescence, such as Neve Cosmetics Blush in Summertime, can help you achieve just that. Summertimes has good color payoff: not as pigmented to make you look like a clown, but not so sheer that you’ll have to apply a ton of product for it to show up. Perfect to enhance a tan, on pale skin it provides a subtle and natural tanned look, while the gold iridescence has a highlighting effect that illuminates the complexion.
Summertimes has a very soft texture that blends like a dream, although, like with all mineral blushes, application can be a bit messy so you’ll to be careful. You will also have to reapply it throughout the day. The blush only lasts about 5 hours on me and keep in mind that my cheeks are dry. You can always use a base to make it last a bit longer. When I use it as an eyeshadow, and on top of Too Faced Shadow Insurance, it lasts pretty much the entire day without creasing. Summertime is also lip safe but I haven’t used it on my lips yet.
Unfortunately, Neve Cosmetics doesn’t ship internationally yet so only those who live in Italy will be able to get it. Another con is the price. The full size retails at €12,90, which is quite expensive. However, you can also order a mini size (that’s the one I got), which costs only €3,90, but contains a lot of product so it’ll last you for a good while, especially considering that you only need a little for each application.
