La Femme Blush on Rouge Swatches
Thursday, June 6, 2013
I took a chance and ordered from MakeupMania and I'm happy to report that customer service was excellent this time, greatly improved from my first order. They actually called to let me know that one of my items was going to be out of stock for another few days and that they were shipping me what was available ahead in another package. I'll probably order from them in the future because their La Femme prices are definitely the cheapest around.
Red is a matte red with glitter in the pan that shows up on heavy swatches like on my arm, but not really on the cheeks. Orange is a true matte orange. Heather looks is a lighter peachy matte. Mauve Sparkle is a mauve shade, there is shimmer but it is very subtle making it look much more satin. Bordeaux is a dark matte brownish wine color with glitter.
The pigmentation is quite good, especially with the darker colors. I find the formula to be a little on the dry side, not particularly silky or buttery feeling. They apply without a problem though, I use a duo fiber brush for the more pigmented shades and regular blush brush for the lighter ones. However, La Femme's color range and pricing makes it easier for me to look past that. $2.87 per pan! The ones packaged in an actual pot are only a dollar or so more.
Have you tried out any of La Femme's blushes? I think that they are by far LF's most popular item, especially since they've been heavily featured on YouTube.
