|Estée Lauder Cello Shots Cheek Rush Blush in Pink Patent* and X-Pose Rose* (£24)|
Consistency wise these are very much a gel type formula sitting perfectly between a cream & a liquid tint and once I got to grips with the application, they're not as fussy as I originally thought they may be. One pump dispenses way too much product, so I always try to apply as little as possible directly on to my brush - I've never been one to apply make up with my fingers & I think these work really nicely with the ELF Studio Powder Brush. They stain so it's best to work quickly, I like to do one cheek at a time patting the product on rather than buffing so I don't move around any of my base, but once everything is set it won't budge all day! They're pretty buildable, X-Pose Rose packs more of a punch with two layers but Pink Patent keeps its subtlety, which I think is lovely.
Once on the cheeks these look so natural, feel weightless and are so comfortable even on the warmest of days. They're certainly not the cheapest of blushes and the pump dispensing way too much product can be more than a little frustrating at times, but the positives definitely far outweigh the negatives for me. If you're on the lookout for a subtle pink blush I think Pink Patent would be perfect and if you're after something a little bolder, but still natural, X-Pose Rose is stunning!
