Review: Sue Devitt Gel-to-Powder Blush

The blush I believe is the most indispensable part of a make up regimen. If  I'm in a rush and I don't have the luxury of time to do my face,  the first thing I'd grab is a blush.. be it a cheek tint, powder blush, whatever it is I can hold onto. There was even a time when I used my red lipstick to put color on my cheeks. I was about to go down from my car when I realized that my face was like a blank canvass and I was really running late. The blush in my kit was a shimmery pink and I thought it wouldn't look good if I put it on.... alone (since I don't have  time of  going through "the works"). So I had this bright idea of using my red lipstick to put a tinge of color to my pale face and a dab on the lips....Voila!! It instantly gave me that just-pinched healthy look ^_^. I know, I know it's not good for the skin... but it's just for emergency, You know, break- glass- in -case-of fire sort of thing. Haha!

Passing by Beauty Bar at Trinoma I caught a glimpse of  this poster of a girl looking so dewy and fresh sporting a cheek blush au naturale'...if you know what I mean. I wonder how many make up-loving women like me drooled over those cheeks! I lost no time and asked the SA, who by the was very accommodating. As if she read my mind, she handed me a tester of  Sue Devitt Gel -to-Powder-Blush and its LOVE....... and the rest so they say is history.

ME Says:

  • it glides on smoothly when applied
  • easy to blend
  • gives that nice pop of summery glow to the cheeks
  • color pay off is good
  • comes in a chic and small compact with mirror
  • lasted 4-5 hours on my cheeks on a humid day
  • available locally
  • has natural extracts beneficial to the skin

velvety smooth...

  • quite pricey at 1,250PhP a pop
  • color has tendency to dissipate if you over blend it , a few tap and a little blending and you're good to go
  • if you're into matte blush then this is not for you (love it tho'!)


Will I repurchase? why not?  maybe a  different shade next time :)
Rate: 4.5/5

(akkkk.... foundation shade doesn't match!.. hehe)

I apply this with my bare clean fingers or you can use stippling brush but using a brush or any applicator may just cause the color to dissipate's already light and satiny to begin with.

If you're looking for a  warm and natural glow on your cheeks specially for summer then you should give this a shot! *wink*
