There are always new blush formulas being released, but it’s been a long time since I was as excited as I have been about the launch of the Ciaté Glow-To Illuminating Blush Collection. I’ve got around thirty Ciaté Paint Pot Nail Polishes, but I’ve not really ventured into trying their makeup range apart from their Fierce Flicks Eyeliner and one of their Ciaté Lip Chalks. The Ciaté Glow-To Illuminating Blushes Collection consists of six different shades; five of which I have to show you today, with In Too Deep being the sixth shade which is described as a ‘lavender pink’. They each retail for £22 and contain 4 grams of product, packaged within a stunning silver compact with a pretty bow and star design on the lids.
The new Ciaté Glow-To Illuminating Blushes contain an unique proprietary blend utilising prisma technology combining silky matte blush with an ultra fine powder highlighter. Each of the blushes feature a marbleised design within the pan, meaning that no two compacts are ever the same. Not only is the outer packaging beautiful, but the presentation of the powder pans is equally beautiful with an almost wrapped gift design on the powder, with stars and a bow in the middle. The marble design is so, so pretty and I really didn’t want to touch them incase I ruined the design with my brush but even with continued use over a number of weeks, the design is still visible with the pans which I love.
Glow – To Illuminating Blush has a lightweight, second-skin finish, making it ideal for a radiant no-makeup look. Alternatively, build up the colour to take your look from a morning glow to flushed in the moonlight! Lasting up to 12 hours, this stunning blusher-highlighter is ideal for creating a luminous radiance.
Summer Love is an apricot pink.
Pinch Me is a coral.
Date Night is a terracotta.
Matchmaker is a rose.
Baby Doll is a dusky pink.
When I first saw the Ciaté Glow-To Illuminating Blushes, I instantly thought of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes which also feature a marbelised design with the blush being blended with their highlighter powders but they’re pretty pricey at £32 each. I typically prefer a matte blush as I don’t like shimmer on the apples of my cheeks but the marbelised effect couldn’t be any more flattering as the blush imparts an healthy flush of colour to the cheeks, whilst the highlighter gives the cheeks lots of luminosity without any obnoxious shimmer and glitter.
I love that the pans all look completely different and if you’re careful with your brush, you can concentrate on more blush or more highlighter although it’ll depend on the individual design of each pan, as my Matchmaker blush has highlighter blended all over the pan. I love absolutely everything about these blushes. They have such a lovely, easy to apply formula which sits nicely on the skin without emphasising pores or texture of the skin. If you like your blushes to be luminous and natural, you’ll love the formula of the Ciaté Glow-To Illuminating Blushes as they really are something special.
