Shady packaging comprised of cheap plastic and a far-too-easy-to-snap lid aside, this blush is amazing. A tiny powder version of NARS Penny Lane no less, the absolute dupe for NARS Douceur (although perhaps a tad pinker) and a blush I can't believe I've overlooked for so long.
The soft, buttery texture of Rimmel Lasting Finish Santa Rose Blush makes it effortless to blend evenly into the skin, providing a gorgeous dusky peach-pink hue with slight brown undertones. The formula is highly pigmented requiring only a little to be lightly dusted onto the cheeks for a natural finish said to last up to six hours. On my fair complexion I find a light hand is needed or else the colour can appear rather muddy, more brown than pink, and more than a little unflattering. Dusted onto the cheeks the colour pay off is astounding, it warms up a pale complexion and is neutral enough to compliment any look; I've been using this blush regularly and it's quickly become one of the favourites in my collection.
