From The vault: Abundance by Kjaer Weis

This months look back at products past brings to light a suitably wintery shade of cream blush from my favourite Danish Make-up Artist Kjaer Weis…

 

Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Abundance

Inspired by and created with a twist on old Hollywood cinema, Abundance is a beautiful plum toned taupe with a slight irridecent finish. Designed to give a crisp, modern finish to your make-up, it creates a beautiful soft glow that has an almost sculpting effect on the face when applied beneath the apple of the cheek or the cheekbone.

Abundance like all of the Kjaer Weis cream blushers blends beautifully with a light touch and applies equally well with a finger or synthetic brush (my cream blusher brush of choice is the LY34 from Louise Young Cosmetics).
Once applied and blended out Abundance has an almost bronzey peach appearance but the more the colour is built up or the less blended it is, the plummier the colour is. The shimmer isn’t too much and gives a natural glow rather than a glitter effect. I love the natural shadow effect that Abundance creates on fairer skins (with that hint of un-shadow like shimmer of course) and I can’t wait to see how it works on darker skin tones.

Kjaer Weis blushes are just fabulous. I have a number of them in my kit however this one never actually made it there as I took ownership of it from the off. Although the version I wrote about here was past it’s best a while ago and consequently discarded, re-reading this post has certainly prompted me to take another look at it when I next pop up to Content for a spot of make-up shopping.

Abundance is a beautiful shade but in my opinion it is most definitely a wintery one – I don’t think I ever wore it outside of the cold, dark days. This being the case if I do choose to repurchase, I should either do it quickly before the seasons change, or I should make a note to pick one up in the Autumn…

Definitely at the luxury end of the market, the blush is priced at £40.00 with the beautiful compact and £22.00 for the refill, both from Content.
