Lancome Blush In Love in Pomettes D’Amour for Spring 2013

Probably the star products for the Spring 2013 Lancome In Love Spring 2013 Collection are the Blush In Love cheek colours in Peche Joue-Joue and Pommettes D’Amour ($52 CAD). I am reviewing Pommettes D’Amour for you today.

The blush is housed in cardboard packaging. Not my favourite kind of packaging but totally cute in this case so I’ll deal! The compact has a flip top that secures with a magnetic closure as well as a removable mirror.

Pommettes D’Amour Blush In Love has two shades of blush. A bright, cool pink and a coral. It is possible to use these colours separately but I much prefer just swirling my brush freely in the pan to get a blended shade. There is a small amount of shimmery overspray on the floral details of the pink shade but it is quickly removed. The blush itself has a satin finish.

When I first swatched the blush I found the result a bit sheer and lacking pigment. I was concerned I wasn’t going to “love” the Blush In Love formula. When in use on the cheeks though this blush gives a nice amount of colour with a soft, translucent finish that allows you to achieve a really natural looking glow or build it up with ease for a more impactful cheek. I’ve found myself to be quite fond of it and the gorgeous, fresh glow it gives to my skin. I will be sure to get a Look post up soon featuring the Lancome In Love Spring 2013 collection so you can see it in action.

The Lancome In Love Spring 2013 Makeup Collection is available now at department stores, select drugstores, and at Lancome.ca. It is also available online at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Bergdorf Goodman.

    I quite like the design of this one! It’s like having 3 blushes in one! I already own so many corals, but I don’t think I own anything remotely close to this pink. Can’t wait to see it on you!

    This is SO pretty, but I wouldn’t be afraid to use this! The design looks like it’s engraved pretty deep, unlike the overspray designs that a lot of LE palettes have. Such a beautiful colour!

    I love pretty designs on products and this looks so wearable and not just for sitting and looking pretty.
