Cosme-de Haul

NARS Dolce Vita

Benefit Coralista

Until a few weeks ago I'd not heard of Cosme-de - but they're a skincare, makeup, fragrance site who sell different brands, both high street and high end, at low prices (think Fragrance Direct) and from what I've seen, they hold quite a few flash sales too.

They sell makeup from a range of brands like Dior, Guerlian, NARS, Benefit, Clinique, Bobby Brown and more and have free worldwide shipping on every order which is pretty sweet :)

Here's a quick first impressions of both blushers, full reviews will be coming soon in separate posts.

NARS Blusher in Dolce Vita
I absolutely love this colour - it reminds me of the Maybelline blusher in Flash Plum which is one of my favs for autumn.  It's a dark deep berry that is beautifully pigmented, you certainly don't need to swoosh your brush in it much to pick up just the right amount of product.  In fact, I tend to dab my blusher brush in it, 2-3 times which pretty much picks up enough.  Love the deep shade of this and how it's not very shimmery, and in my opinion, a great shade for very pale skin (at least, when applied lightly) :)

Benefit Coralista
I just had to pick one of Benefits most cult blushers!  I don't own many coral blushers, and while for me, they're more of a spring shade, I just couldn't resist.  This one I really like to use as a double blush, so I'll apply this first on the apples of my cheeks, and then layer another blusher over the top closer to my cheekbones, like the NARS Dolce Vita.  Coralista is soft and delicately shimmery, whereas Dolce Vita is a deep berry toned blusher, perfect for these autumnal days for that 'just got in from outside' look.

Have you tried either of these blushers?  What was your favourite?

  1. I've only tried the Coralista and it was so gorgeous from what I can remember. Can't compare it to Nars but Benefit Box O Powders are my favourite from the brand. Will have to snoop on the site x

  2. OOH fab choices in both products, I am a huge fan of Cosme-de, so many bargains x

  3. Benefit Coralista looks really pretty, but most coral brush won't show up against my skin tone. Hmm, might need to give Coralista a try, hopefully it'll work out.
