Review: Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blusher in Cherub

The Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blusher was 100% a blogger influenced purchase. I can't remember where I first came across it, but I added it to my wishlist straight away and it stayed on there for quite a long time. However there's only so many times a girl can see it on blog posts before she ends up whipping out her bank card!! 

The Watercolour Fluid Blusher is a liquid blusher in a 15ml tube, which comes in a wide range of shades. It contains Vitamin E and Jojoba, which is meant to enhance application and nourish the skin. The formula is oil free and silicone based; according to the website, Daniel Sandler chose this formulation so it would suit all skin types, not clog pores and be water resistant and rub-off proof. I went for the shade Cherub, which is Daniel Sandler's best selling shade and I can see why - it's a gorgeous, light but dusky toned pink, advertised for fair to medium skintones. The Watercolour Fluid Blusher retails at £15.50, but I picked it up from Escentual for around £12.00/13.00 when they had a site wide sale and using some of my Pretty Pennies too (basically like Boots Advantage Card Points).

After giving the bottle a good shake as advised, I dot a small drop or two of Cherub onto the back of my hand and then using my Real Techniques Stippling Blush, I apply the Watercolour Fluid Blusher to my cheeks and blend. I use one drop if I want a sheer flush of colour, but a lot of the time I use two drops for a brighter pop of pink. It is a little messier than applying straight from a pot, but oh is it worth it for the finish. I thought cream blusher looked natural on the skin, but liquid blusher takes it to the next level; it looks seamless, like the colour is glowing from within my skin rather than sat on top of it. Cherub is such a perfect natural looking colour too and really suits my pale skin. I would add that although the formula is silicone based, it thankfully doesn't have that silicone feel to it, which generally I'm not keen on. 

The wear time on me is around 7-8 hours maximum; if I was going out straight from work to something in the evening, I would definitely need to top up. A number of reviews I read said they got around 2-3 hours extra wear from the Watercolour Fluid Blusher, so I was hoping for a little more, though of course I appreciate that beauty products will always work differently on different people. However I think it was worth mentioning here and otherwise I am completely in love with Cherub.

Have you tried the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blusher? Are you fan of a liquid blusher formulations?

  5. Recently I've been finding myself really tempted by these so I'm sure it won't be too long before I make my first purchase. If I'd had realised they were in the Escentual sale I would have grabbed one from there *kicks self for not getting through my Bloglovin feed sooner* x
