Whenever I swipe a little blush on my cheeks, there’s that moment afterwards when I take a step back, see myself in the mirror and sigh with relief. “Ahhh…”
You know what I’m talking about.
Without at least a hint of color on my cheeks, I look like a walking billboard for one of those all-inclusive island resorts — an aimless, ambling, barely-aware “before” picture of someone in dire need of a margarita on a white sandy beach (picture me in a ratty terrycloth bathrobe, mismatched socks and unkempt hair).
The new $8 Forget-Me-Not Win Some Rouge Some Creme Blush from Flower Beauty — yup, Drew Barrymore’s new makeup line — takes care of that.
I use my fingers to apply a few swipes of the pale peachy pink matte cream blush, which dries to a powder finish, on the apples of my cheeks, and like that! — it flips a switch, transforming me from an exhausted cautionary tale into one of those vibrant smiling women who stops to buy flowers, flirts with the newsstand guy and pets puppies in parks.
For an enhanced effect, just add one or two layers. It behaves well on top of bare skin, foundation and even powder.
Oh, one more thing — a powder blush dusted on top really keeps this blush around, extending its wear time from 3-4 hours to 4-5.
When I wear Forget-Me-Not on its own, I do have to make sure to bring it with me for a touch-up after lunch. Good thing the dainty 0.14-ounce pot easily fits in my already jam-packed makeup bag.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. YES! WE MADE IT! I think we should probably dance or something…because it’s been a long, long week.
