Ladies, you might have noticed that Blush Domes are IN at the moment. I’m going to confess, when I first started seeing them I wasn’t interested at all, they look a little tacky and I thought it was just a fad that would quickly pass… that was until more and more brands started launching them.
I finally gave in and decided to actually give them a go and I’ll admit, was pleasantly surprised! I’ve chosen out some of my favs to show you today!
L-R Bagsy, Ciate, TBS, Topshop.
Bagsy Pretty Cheeks Velvet Blush in 01 Velvet Rose – How gorgeous is this shade? I was really surprised by the pigment of this dome, the newest in my collection from brand new makeup line Bagsy. The colour is stunning and it has a gorgeous velvety cream touch which makes it really easy to blend into the apples of the cheeks.
Ciate Blush Pop in Darling – This might just be my favourite and has become a makeup bag staple of mine because the colour is just so stunning! It is just the perfect peachy summer shade and it’s creamy consistency is gorgeous too.
Body Shop Honey Bronze Highlighting Dome in #02 & #01 – These are technically Highlighters but they’re so stunning. It took me a long time to try these but I’m so glad I did – #01 is just the most beautiful gold toned shimmer and the dome shape makes it glad for sweeping along the cheek bones and on the cupids bow for a quick application. #02 is a rosey pink shade with specks of gold, it reminds me of Nars Orgasm blusher!
Topshop Glow Dome in Galatic – I haven’t worn this out as I’m not entirely brave enough but had to include it as the colour is just stunning. It’s a two-tone purple/gold shade which I have never seen before in a cream makeup product – it’s almost iridescent and so unique. This is a multiuse product so you can apply to the eyes, lips, cheek or collarbones for a hint of purple shimmer in the light!
I’ve had a lot of fun playing with these. I find the best way to apply them (personally) is to sweep a duo-fibre brush over the dome and sweep on cheeks to build up colour. The thought of just drawing the colours straight onto the face from the dome makes me a little anxious (what if I don’t blend it in time!) so I prefer to build up a natural flush another way!
Have you tried a Blush/Highlighter Dome? What are your thoughts?
