ABAD Day 13: Benefit I Lotused You Looking Blush//"每日一胭脂"系列 第13天: Benefit I Lotused You Looking 胭脂

Here comes the second lilac/lavender hue blush I am going to introduce in this series - Benefit I Lotused You Looking. It's from their ages-ago Limited Edition Shangri-Las collection. This, is the first lilac blush I own and use, hence my obsession with lilac/lavender blush started because of it.

這是我第二個介紹的紫色系胭脂 - Benefit 的 I Lotused You Looking, 是屬於很久很久以前的限量系列 (Shangri-Las 系列). 這亦都是我擁有的第一個紫色系胭脂, 隨後的紫色胭脂都是拜它所賜.

Close-up of the lilac-hue in the pan, I kid you not, it's lilac, not pink.

近鏡看清楚, 不是粉紅, 是粉紫.

This small compact is really the size of an eyeshadow, and houses probably the least amount I've come across for blushes (2.75 g). Yet, I absolutely adore this color.

盒子細小得像眼影般細, 載有應該是最小的胭脂份量 (2.75 g). 不過, 我極喜歡這個顏色!

Notice how the lilac bit brightens up the skin?! It makes the skin glows from within.

留意粉紫色如何令整體皮膚看下去精神得多! 皮膚表面的光澤好像從內面滲出來般.

The blush gives me a just-in-from-the-snow-outside that kind of look.


Intensity: Pretty pigmented
Finish: Mostly matte but with tiny bit of shimmer, not noticeable
Price: Unknown, got this from a swap
Lasting power: around 8 hours
Repurchase: If only this became available again, YES!
Overall thoughts: Being the first lilac/lavender blush I tried, this blush changed my mind about blush colors. I found that pale lilacs work surprisingly flattering. It imparts the cheeks a 'just=in-from-the-snow' glow and perks up the whole complexion *v* I kid you not, try a pale lilac/lavender blush yourself!

上色度: 頗高
效果: 大致上是啞光的, 但有不顯眼的光澤
價錢: 不詳
持久度: 8小時, 不俗
回購: 如果它不是限量的話, 那當然會啦
總評: 這是我的第一個粉紫色胭脂, 改變了以往以為胭脂就一定是粉紅/橙/蜜桃色的觀念. 粉紫在面上出奇的好看, 好像 "剛從外面下著雪, 回到室內" 面上會有的嫩粉紅感覺般. 沒有誇大啊, 下次試試粉紫色的胭脂看看吧!

What is A-Blush-A-Day (ABAD) Project?
On each day, each of us will present a different blush (old or new) we used each day (so that's 5 x 30 = 150 blushes), with swatches done either on face or on hand, and a short review. For my list of 30 blushes to be used in this project, click here. Don't forget to head to Elaine's, Vonvon's, PopBlush's and Jolyn's blogs for daily blush surprises!

我們每天會介紹當日使用的胭脂, 5人 x 30 = 會介紹總共 150 個胭脂 (新與舊), 配以試色圖(於手上或面上), 再加短短的用評. 本人於未來30天會使用這些胭脂. 去Elaine, Vonvon, PopBlush, Jolyn的blogs看看她們在用那個胭脂吧!!
