It was only recently that I heard of the brand La Femme, and heard that they make fantastic blushes for only $2.50 each (pan form; $3 in pot form). I decided to try them out and order four blushes – with shipping, my total came to $12.99 which is a fantastic deal. I ordered from Makeup Mania, and I would order from them again.
As you can see from the photo, the four shades that I ordered are Misty Plum, Pink Velvet, Peach, and Magenta. All four are matte, though Pink Velvet has more of a sheen than the other three. All four are incredibly pigmented and very smooth.
However, due to the pigmentation, they can be a little difficult to blend out – especially Magenta, as it’s the deepest and most pigmented; I find that it’s best to apply them over powder (rather than foundation or bare skin), and if I’m still have trouble, I go over them after application with a big fluffy brush to smooth out the edges.
|La Femme Misty Plum; Pink Velvet; Peach; Magenta|
My favorite of the four blushes is Peach – I absolute love it – it is incredibly flattering on me! It is a unique color in my blush collection, and a fabulous neutral blush. I’ve also used it on a friend who has a very different skintone than I do (cool with a lot of surface redness), and it looked beautiful on her as well.
|La Femme Pink Velvet – this one is surprisingly bright applied!|
Pink Velvet looks almost neon – very bright! – if not carefully applied.
|La Femme Misty Plum – My second favorite|
Misty Plum is quite pretty – it’s very neutral.
|La Femme Magenta – Applied VERY sparingly|
I would definitely recommend Magenta for deeper skintones. It’s not quite worth the extra work of application for me.
Peach is absolutely my favorite of the four, I think it would be flattering on most skintones (perhaps not very dark though).
Have you tried La Femme blush? Would you?
