The long-running Unsung Heroes series here on Makeup and Beauty Blog features some of our all-time favorite permanent collection products.
If you think about, if you were to be literally touched by the sun — as in, within the corona of a hot ball of glowing gas — that would probably not be very good.
However, being touched by Kjær Weis Sun Touched Cream Blush, on the other hand, is another story.
For a healthy glow
This has been my favorite blush since I discovered it last December. I didn’t get a lot of sun this winter, but this blush helped me pretend like I did.
This particular coral color works really well with light and medium skin that has golden or olive undertones, and the finish looks completely natural. It isn’t too shiny or matte, so your skin still looks like skin.
I’m really starting to love Kjær Weis. I highlighted the brand a few months ago, and since then I became a full-on Kjær Weis stalker. Let’s just say that I would not be hating life if I had an entire steamer trunk filled with their makeup!
They’re a pricey green beauty brand by makeup artist Kirsten Kjær Weis, with high-performance department store-caliber products. Sun Touched costs — wait for it — $56 for a 0.123-oz. pan, but the compact is refillable, and the refills cost $32, so they’re a little less.
In fact, you could just get one of the refill pans and keep it in your own palette.
The compact looks like jewelry but feels like a ninja weapon. It’s hefty, so it could come in handy in a fight-or-flight situation.
This pan werks
It gives everything its got! I only need to use a little because of how pigmented it is, and I can be blushed and ready to rock and roll in less than 30 seconds. I don’t have to build up layer upon layer… A few quick sweeps is all it takes to erase the edges.
Sun Touched on bare skin looks fab, but it can also handle other choose-your-own adventure makeup situations. It just layers so well under and on top of all kinds of face products. I’ve worn it on top of sheer tinted moisturizer, full-coverage liquid foundation and setting powder, and underneath powder blushes and cream highlighters, too. Seriously, it can handle any combination you throw at it. It always feathers out like a dream and lasts all day long without patchiness.
I put it in my “set it and forget it” category, because I can apply it in the morning, and I don’t have to touch it up throughout the day. I can still see it when I wash my face at night, which pleases the lady very much. 🙂 Because it’s an expensive blush! It should last all day long, and it does.
