Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cream Blush and Pressed Sparklicity Duo
I have always drooled over the blushes from this company at the store, however I always just kept ordering Illamasqua blushes from the website since I was so in love with that formula. I still love that formula but I am trying to branch out a bit and try some other brands. Of course I would find a formula that I love right as the brand is being pulled from its biggest retailer, I will still try and find this brand online but it is just so much easier to find the products when browsing the store. I bought and tried one of the products that was introduced for the spring season and I wanted this product as soon as I read about it.
The Dollskin Cream Blush and Pressed Sparklicity Duo is a combination of a cream blush shade and the best selling Sparklicity product (a product that is unique to this brand). "A collection of blush duos with exquisite powder formulas that glisten. Get a gorgeous, radiant look with these rich, velvety-soft blush combinations. The unique formulas blend effortlessly on cheeks and kiss skin with the subtle shimmer of micro-crystalline Sparklicity. The intense pigments are long-lasting, leaving skin beautifully moisturized and glowing all day."
There are two shades available in this product:
- Mr. Pink - bright azalea pink/shimmering soft pink
- Coral Cameo - warm sunset/shimmering gold tan
I own Mr. Pink, I love the bright pink cream blush hue, worn alone or with a bit of the Sparklicity on top. The smallest appliation of the blush turns my cheeks bright pink and makes me look like I just came in from the cold. This formula is very pigmented and still very easy to use, it must be applied in moderation (otherwise it will be too bright) but the effect is lovely. The blush by itself is best for the daytime, I would only add the shimmer for getting dressed up at night.
I am so sad that I just discovered and bought this formula, I love this product and now want to try the powder version of this blush and see how it compares to the Illamasqua formulas that I love. I hope that the discontinuing of this brand from Sephora does not spell the end of the brand itself, I will be very unhappy if I cannot order these products at all...
