L'Oreal True Match Le Blush

Photo by: Deirdre Crowley/Le Blush True Rose

Le Blush by L’Oreal from the True Match range is the most visibly softening of all powder blushers I’ve used. Softening contours as it builds the cheekbones, it’s effect is enhanced by the colours it comes in - True Rose (a lovely, dusky pink I tested), Nude Pink, Rosewood, Old Rose, Nude Brown and Sandalwood Rose - warm, cool and neutral colours formulated to suit every skin tone. The surprise of this product is its two tier design – the compact blusher first and beneath that a mirror and a miniature, useful blusher brush. Oil-free and non-comedogenic (it doesn’t clog the pores causing acne), Le Blush by L’Oreal provides the finishing touch for a perfected, matte complexion. £7.69 from Boots and Superdrug stores nationwide or see the product online at www.loreal-paris.co.uk

Site Statement Think Beauty Try Beauty

i-D Magazine September 2012 issue

Beauty is filtered through to the consumer when the beauty product becomes available. Backstage at the international runway shows and in fashion magazines, for example, as beauty products, cosmetics and beauty tools are used and become more refined, the beauty industry presents an approach to the beauty ideal and it develops. Trends and glamour are identifiable in beauty and popularity translates into sales, sustaining this huge industry. The future of beauty is skincare, cosmetics, beauty tools and beauty applications and technologies, and these are continuous. The idea of your beauty routine is to sustain it, dream a little and absorb its effects. Consume. Synthesise. Absorb. Enhance.
