Snooki from MTV’s The Jersey Shore is probably the last person I want to be quoting, but girlfriend’s signature catchphrase perfectly describes my feelings for Boots No7 Cheek Tint in Peach Silk ($10).
My heart gave itself over to Peach Silk from the very first swipe. One of three Boots cream blush colors, it had me at hello, but ’twas a love not meant to be (more on that in a sec). So easy to blend and effortless to apply, it’s a matte peach that I think makes me look like I’m actually blushing, and I’d hoped we’d have many great makeup adventures together.
But trouble started brewing a couple of hours into our first date…
Here’s a blush that disappears faster than an open jar of Nutella!
I get two hours of color from it, max, and that’s WITH a primer worn underneath it and powder on top. Whether sitting in a movie theater and stuffing my pie hole with popcorn or sitting on the couch watching back to back eps of The Shield, Peach Silk and I can’t stand being around each other for long.
Maybe it slips off quickly because it’s summer here and my cheeks have been oilier than usual. Ladies with drier skin than mine might find that it lasts longer for them (if you give it a try and love it, please let me know). I still adore the color, the price and how easy it is to apply, but too bad the product doesn’t linger longer on my skin. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B-
