Thierry Mugler Make Up Face Shadows & Lights Blush works in a very interesting way. The two-step process starts with intense sticker shock! — as the product costs a whopping $65. The resulting loss of blood flow to the face bleaches the color from cheeks; then, and this is the best part, the powder contouring and highlighting duos restore a lifelike appearance. 🙂
But seriously, at least now I know who makes a very expensive, but totally natural-looking, powder blush. The price is like a whole new level of splurge beyond Chanel, but if flawless, airbrushed cheeks are your thing, then it might be worth a shot.
Like a pair of Christian Louboutin basic black pumps without any bells or whistles, the two available shades — Brown & White (a medium warm brown blush with a soft white highlighter) and Pink & White (a light cool pink with a soft white highlighter) — appear restrained and elegant. The duos contain a blend of silky polymers, powders and atomized pigments for a high precision finish with a subtle effect.
What does that mean? It means some of the finest milled powders I’ve ever tried or seen.
I barely see the grains on my skin, and I bet one could apply as many as six layers without producing a heavy, mask-like effect. The quiet sheen they deliver gives off a lovely, soft glow — something like a MAC Beauty Powder turned down a notch or two.
