Estée Lauder Pure Colour Cello Shots Cheek Rush Blush in Pink Patent & X-Pose Rose.

Estée Lauder Cello Shots Cheek Rush Blush in Pink Patent* and X-Pose Rose* (£24)
Estée Lauder have been really on point with their new make up releases recently & the new(ish) Pure Colour Cheek Rush Cello Shot blushes are easily one of my favourite products of the entire year so far. I have the shades Pink Patent, which gives a pretty barely-there baby pink tint and X-Pose Rose, a slightly brighter and deeper more fuchsia toned pink. Although these look incredibly bright don't let that put you off because they're super sheer and absolutely beautiful, even on the palest skin tones.

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! 

Have you tried anything from the Cello Shots range?

  3. I'd love to try these but they scare me a bit! Just because you've gotta work quickly or they stain, I tried some on my hand in the store and it def didn't budge until I used makeup remover on it later. I'm still deciding if I want them or not.

  12. I love the packaging! It sounds like a great formula. I've tried the Elf HD blush, but they're definitely more cream than gel! Better start saving my pennies...xx

    I really like the look of the packaging, although pumps always seems to be a problem with either too much or too little product...

  14. I was going to buy Hot Fuse but I received a rude comment from the woman at the counter, so i didn't buy. Even-though the bad service was well... bad, I wont let it stop me from getting a cello shot. Great post!

    1. Oh no!! I hate when people are rude when you're wanting to purchase, it puts me off as well. These are very much worth the price tag though, I think Hot fuse would look amazing on you! <3

  22. these look so cute - i love how the packaging clearly shows the shade so it's easy to spot in your makeup collection! have you tried applying these with fingers? or do they apply better with the brush as you mentioned?

    1. I've never been very good at applying make up with my fingers, but I think these would definitely work! I prefer brushes, probably just because I'm more used to using them! xo

I like the the sound of the gel consistency, must definitely investigate next time I'm out shopping, I'm really in need of some decent blusher!
