Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in Gentle

With summer firmly on my mind I have been rustling through my stash seeking out lighter formulas to allow my skin to breathe a little and also to hopefully achieve a summer glow.
If that sounds familiar then you may want to seek out a watercolour blush or two...

Don't you adore funky packaging?
I am completely enamored by the dinky little squeeze bottles that Daniel Sandler Watercolour
Blush come presented within they look more at home within an artist studio than in a make-up bag. 
Although small and dare I say it cute in stature they are utterly practical,
robust and the perfect size to travel with be in abroad or within your everyday make-up pouch.

The Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush range currently runs in 12 various shades all of which are utterly wearable and suitable for most skin tones if not all. Today I have the shade Gentle which is a difficult hue to fully describe but to my eye it is a neutral, yellow based bronze tinged apricot. I have nothing at all like it but will say that it delivers a healthy bronze type out door glow that is perfect for a fuss free summer look. Like I said I don't own any out right dupes but I would liken it to Benefit Dallas Blush not so much in colour but more effect. In my opinion Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in Gentle although not lacking in pigmentation it is a shade I would say is better suited to light to medium complexions.

I'm sure along the way most of use with have used a cream blush of some sort
which is what I somewhat assumed that this would be similar too...boy was I wrong!
This a loose thin liquid that sounds more frightening than it actually is.
To use you simply shake and a dispense the tiniest amount on to the back of your hand
and then apply to your cheeks using either your fingertips or a brush, the product suggests buying the watercolour brush but I have found a typical foundation brush to work perfectly fine.
When you first use this you will be shocked at how well the blush is pigmented yet it provides the most natural sheer coverage with a dewy finish. I must warn you that a little goes a long, long way with this blush line so if you want an intense finish do not apply a mass of product but rather build the coverage up in layers.
You can easily build the blush without any problems and on my oily skin it wore without any signs
of wear for 9 hours but had potential to go a little further.
