Watercolour Fluid Blusher and Water Brush by Daniel Sandler.

16.5.14


Hi lovelies! Sorry for the lack of posts this week, between 10-hour shifts and gym sessions I’ve just been all over the place. Todays post is on a product I bought on a whim after seeing it featured in a recent Pixiwoo video, and it is the gorgeous Watercolour Fluid Blusher and Water Brush by Daniel Sandler. This post was on the backburner for a while but after I tweeted about this product I got a big reponse so it quickly moved to the top of the pile!





I must admit I was completely clueless about Daniel Sandlers make-up before seeing it mentioned in the video, but I quickly went on the website and had a good old nosey! There was an amazing offer on and I got 2 watercolour blushers and the waterbrush for £30.00 (saving £16.50)! The set included the colours Angel, a rosy peach toned colour with a slight shimmer, and Cherub, a soft pink with a silver shimmer, both in 15ml bottles. I was so pleased both these colours were in the set as for me it covers all blush bases, peach and pink!

This product is amazing.  I never thought I’d be a fan of a water-based blush but I really can’t fault it. It’s really well pigmented but still looks natural as your skin’s still visible through the product. It’s staying power is also brilliant, even though you only use 1 dot of product per cheek. I wore it for those pesky 10-hour shifts and I was still looking rosy (..get it) by the end of the day. My main worry with a water-based product was that it would go shiny but I was pleasantly surprised. It provided a healthy glow throughout the day and the shimmer in the product meant I didn’t need highlighter – big time saver at 7am!




The waterbrush that came with the product wasn’t what I expected. It’s made with synthetic hairs that are all different lengths. This makes for a really natural application and the product doesn’t look caked on. The brush is absolutely packed with hairs so I found it quite stiff to begin with, but I guess that’s because I’m used to normal fluffy blush brushes. The synthetic hairs don’t soak up any product which means you get great colour pay off when using it! I can’t wait to try this brush with other liquid blushes like Benetint and Posietint as I’ve never had the right tools to successfully apply these on my cheeks!


I really love this product and I’m so glad I purchased it just in time for summer as it will give me that perfect natural glow. A very good introduction to Daniel Sandler's make-up collection, I don't think it will be my last purchase from it! Would you consider buying water-based blush? Or have you already? xo
