Napoleon Perdis Blush Patrol: Really, a Burgundy for The Pale Set

Napoleon Perdis Blush Patrol, review, swatch

This is a much darker blush than I thought I’d ever be using. I’m very pale and using a blush that is darker than a mid tone pink (with a big fluffy brush) is asking to look like a clown.

Somehow, that isn’t the case with this blush. I think it must be that there is enough gold and white mixed in, but this blush has been really great on my skin tone. I’ve found myself reaching for it over and over. It took me forever to take pics of it. I couldn’t keep it in my “typical” photo area. I was continually hunting it down each morning!

The blush is suprisingly light, really it is more of a rose color. The gold adds a little faint shimmer, really it just barely catches the light and that’s it. I think this blush would work for pretty much any skin tone.

    Wow, it's pretty.

    I have brown skin, but I think this'll work on me too. It looks like it can give a sunkissed look.

    I love Napoleon, he's such a sweetie. There was actually a handwritten note in the prize I won from you!

    I love this blush, and this line of blushes in general. I'm a huge fan of pigmented and shimmery blushes. Even though I'm pale I don't look awake unless I pile on the blush but my pink skin can handle quite a bit of color.
