Daybreak.

Wasn’t that an Ethan Hawke movie about vampires?

Or was it Daybreakers?

Sorry… Never mind. :)

Giorgio Armani’s $46 Cheek Fabric in Daybreak 503 might not have enough bite for the Ladies League of Plush Pigment Vampires because 1) its apricot sheen is surprisingly subtle on skin, and 2) it’s almost $50.

But if you don’t mind spending a pretty penny (or rather, 4,600 of them) and like makeup that doesn’t look obvious, or you want a blush to wear with bolder eye looks, ch-ch-ch-check it out…

When I want to keep the focus solely on my eyes, like when I’m a wearing a black, gray and/or taupe smokey eye look, I’ll apply Daybreak and swipe a pale nude gloss on my lips.

On my combo dry/oily skin, I get about between 8-10 hours of wear from Daybreak (from about dusk till daybreak, in fact).

I’m also wearing the Urban Decay Naked2 Basics Palette and Armani’s Black Ecstasy Mascara on on my eyes, and Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lipgloss in Origami on my lips

Even though it’s super subtle (and perhaps too quiet for some), I think of Daybreak as one of the more interesting blushes I’ve ever worn because of the way the powder lays on the skin. It’s as if it clings to the surface, and it almost feels like I’m wearing nothing at all. Très elegant.

The color is kinda interesting, too. The apricot pigment shows up on my cheeks but still lets a lot of my natural skin tone through.

Apparently, Armani designed it that way. They combine pure pigments with a transparent base, so that when you apply the blush to your skin, it looks soft and luminous.

Daybreak is part of the permanent line and was recently re-promted with Armani’s new fall collection. It’s available now with the rest of its fall cohorts.

PRICE: $46
AVAILABILITY: Permanent, and available now at Giorgio Armani Beauty counters and online

    This is very pretty! It definitely compliments smokey looks well. It looks like it’ll be a nice everyday blush too. The finish looks really natural.

    Oh I love that! I needs it. I have a weakness for Armani blushes and I don’t think they get the credit they are due!

    So pretty! Giorgio Armani, take my money! I saw they have a beautiful new eyeshadow palette on their website for $88; inspired by shadow and light.

    All these fall launches are killing my wallet!

    It’s really pretty and looks great with your smokey eye. I tend to be more in rodeo clown territory but this would be a nice color for mid winter when I’m paler than Casper. :)
