As the weather gets colder, my skin gets drier, and I tend to gravitate towards more liquid/gel products than powders. Recently, I received a deluxe sample of the Sephora Colorful Cheek Ink Gel.
This product is pretty affordable at $14, and it comes in 6 shades. Thankfully, I was given the lightest shade Peony. I was afraid that something with so much concentrated pigment would just be too bold for my pale skin, but this shade really worked and it looks pretty natural. It just gives me a gentle flush.
Another positive feature of this product is that it blends really well without messing up the rest of my face makeup. I had to apply this after applying concealer on a blemished cheek, and I was afraid that it would displace the concealer and make the blemishes more noticeable. I often avoid blush when I have a blemish in this area, but I wanted to try it out to see what would happen. I was pleasantly surprised that it blended without ruining my carefully placed concealer.
Overall, I think this is a nice product. It’s certainly less expensive than a lot of other liquid/gel blush options. It also comes in a nice variety of shades, so I’m sure every skin tone can find the perfect match.
