I’m sure my love of cream blusher as not gone unnoticed (or unmentioned!); it is such a versatile product which is universally flattering. I recommend them to everyone who asks (and those who don’t!).
Described as natural balms, the carrot colour pots are little (6.5gm) jars of cream blush. They have been designed as a multitasking cream, adding a pop of colour to the cheeks and eye as well as the lips.
Full of nourishing ingredients such as avocado oil (skin softening and hydrating), jojoba oil (anti-inflammatory) and cocoa butter (hydrating, fights damage from free-radicals). The hero ingredient however is it’s namesake, Carrot oil which is considered to have anti-aging and sun protection properties.
The carrot pots can be applied either with fingers or a brush directly to moisturised skin or over makeup (before powdering). I have also used it as a base layer beneath a power blush for a little more longevity of wear.
Buildable and easy to blend, on the skin Harmony is not quite as sheer as an RMS Lip2Cheek (probably the most similar product available I can think of) and has a more satin finish. It is creamier and smoother to the touch and is a little more pigmented, so you only need a relatively small amount to achieve the desired depth of colour.
Harmony is a beautiful Dusty pink. I have only used it on a couple of jobs so far so it hasn’t been fully tried and tested on a wide range of skin tones but it certainly gives a lovely natural flush to fairer skin tones. I think it is possibly a little too light and dusty for darker skins but I will update once I have had an opportunity to give it a whirl.
Harmony aside, there are four other colour pots in the range: Healthy (a creamy caramel); Hello (a poppy red); Happy (crimson red) and Holy (a rich grape) and I can see myself adding them to my kit in the very near future.
