Ida Maria's fun and sassy song "Cherry Red" (listen here) popped in my head just this morning. Also, with summer winding down for us (going to miss BC cherries!), I have to admire the delicious look of cherry on the face and lips. Which got me thinking: what cherry red products do I love?
First off, the beautiful Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Natural Beauty which is described as a "muted strawberry red". This
strawberry cherry red is perfectly suited for cool toned skin tones, and with a hint of shimmer it brightens and flushes the face.
To be honest, I was quite scared at first of wearing a red blush - I mean, I don't want to look like I've just finished a 10K run! A light hand and blending is key - as with most blushes.
This blush is not inexpensive by any means (CAD $31)... I was pretty happy to receive it as a gift from my mom (although she herself sticks to Clinique blushes).
Another thing I have to mention is how long-wearing these blushes are (as I write this, I can still see colour after 7 hours)! These have been raved about online and that is what initially drew me to them. I'm curious about some of their coral blushes as well - Exposed has received lots of attention, for example.
Secondly, I had to mention the Revlon Colorburst lip butter in 063 Wild Watermelon. Again, don't let the *wrong* fruit name deceive you - once on the lips, it is a lovely cherry red shade that you can also wear sheer in the day. I love all my lip butters, and this one is from the latest release which I was happy to try out!
Would you wear these cherry red products? What are your picks?
