Now that’s a lot of tacos. Sisley Cosmetics, a brand I don’t know a lot about, hopes to answer the question, “What does $108 look like?” Their new Lorchidee Highlighter Blush breaks the $100 barrier, but here’s the thing: I think it’s actually really, really good.
$108 is unbelievable for a blush, but for all that coin you do get a natural look that lasts all day and a glow like you just won the Mega Millions jackpot.
Luxurious from front to back — from the silver chariot/pan it rides in, to the powders so finely milled that the grains are almost microscopic — Lorchidee is a sight to behold. The coral, pink, brown and golden colors blend together seamlessly to give cheeks a softly radiant glow of golden peachy pink.
But even though I feel almost regal wearing this blush, I can’t see it working its way into my everyday makeup bag. It’s just too pricey for something like that.
Now, my special occasion makeup bag? Yeah, maybe there. 🙂
Additional makeup worn in the look on my eyes: Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 in The Phenomenon and Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara in Purple; and lips: Becca Sheer Lip Colour in Valentina
Sisley also incorporated extract of white lily to moisturize the skin, although, truth be told, my dry cheeks don’t feel completely quenched when I wear it.
Gorgeous as it is, the price will still be a major hurdle for this lovely blush. But hey, if you’re a makeup lover with a weakness for high-end brands, and you’re looking for a warm, peachy pink coral blush to add to your collection/treasure trove, you might make a spot for Sisley L’OrchidÃ¨e Highlighter Blush on your Bloomingdale’s shopping list.
