Ah, the life of a lazy makeup junkie – wanting to put something nice on, even when we just can’t be bothered to put on a full face of makeup! Some days, we choose to play up and define our eyes. Other days, a swipe of lipstick or lip gloss does the trick. And other times, when we feel extra pallid and zombie-like, it’s a flush of color to the face that makes us look a little bit more.. human.
The thing with blush is that it can be a little tedious to find what shade suits you. Out of the many reds, pinks, peaches, corals, and other colors, there is bound to be a blush of each shade that suits you best. You have to take into account your undertone, your skin type, and other bits and bobs. (Personally, I’m a bit on the cool-toned side of complexions, with an oily skin type to boot.)
City Color’s Be Matte Blush is raved throughout the Internet not only for the inexpensive price ($4.99 on their website), but also for the easy-to-blend formula matched with superior pigmentation. I picked up the shade Guava, as I don’t really go for pinks or reds or anything too bright – I prefer a natural flush, really!
I forgot what exact store I purchased mine from, but I know it was from one of the beauty and lifestyle bazaars that regularly happen here in Metro Manila. ^^;; (But for my Southies, there’s a stall in Pop Culture at Alabang Town Center that has a whole slew of City Color Cosmetics products!)
