for them apples (of ur cheeks)

inglot amc face blush in 55 // £11

confession: never really got on with blusher. i always used it to bring back colour to my face after removing it with foundation (counter productive?) but i've never applied it and gone WOW SWEETIE THAT IS REALLY WORKING FOR U HOT DAMN, which honestly should be the response when applying any sort of makeup or y'all should get an immediate refund (which is totally reasonable and is the first rule of law school*).

so turns out, i'd just never used a shade that really, really, worked with my skin tone. enter the inglot amc blush in 55 (by the way, inglot, i'd be really good at coming up with shade names if you're hiring), which is best described by these adjectives: dusty rose. soft. pink. matte. mauve. beautiful. the pigmentation is at that perfect level where it's definitely visible but not over-the-top after sweeping it onto the cheeks with a fluffy brush, and it has a lovely velvet texture to it that reminds you that sometimes it's okay to spend more than a fiver to look good.

guess this is what they mean then they go on about that whole "natural flush" deal.

*i have never been to law school but if that isn't the first rule then they really need to get their shit together

  8. Inglot is one of the brands with the most gorgeous color shades for me! I've been in love with their lip colors and lip glosses for a while now, but never tried a blush.. This looks quite intense, creamy is my favorite texture!

  14. I am in love with this shade and it definitely looks like something that I would with darker lips when it gets a bit colder. I have spots on my cheeks, so I am not too crazy about blushes because I feel like they would just bring more attention to something I am trying to hide

  17. I feel the same way about blush whenever I wear it, but when I skip the blush, I'm like "I NEED THAT ON MY FACE"
    Love the shade of this one!

  18. The photography in this post is fantastic - so light and fresh! Also, I only recently discovered a blusher that made me react in such a way haha, up until recently I applied it more out of habit (and uh, duty?).

    Have a lovely week ahead :)

  19. Great shade name lol! But I think the lack of creativity is made up by the gorgeous colour and pigmentation. I would love to try this x

  20. I absolutely LOVE blusher, but you're right, you have to get the right shade! I'm finding myself reaching for Illamasqua powder blush in Tremble most mornings since I've had it. It's similar to this in that it's quite a pale pink with a lilac undertone. A little brighter, though.

    P.S I love the way you write. New follower ahoy!

  25. This is a gorgeous, stunning shade! I didn't realise inglot sold the blushes in compacts as well as in pans.

  26. I actually would put blush on and sometimes skip the foundation LOL. They just add color to my cheeks and not make me look so dead on camera hehe. :p

  27. This shade is sooo swoon worthy! I can imagine it looking gorgeous on pale skin tones and also flattering on medium/olive skintones too, not heard much about Inglot blushers but certainly will be checking them out after reading this post ^_^

  28. Such a lovely everyday blush and seems really pigmented. I'm impressed. Have not tried Inglot yet but must pay their store a visit soon. I've only heard great things about their products. x
