When I did my huge haul post earlier this month, these were the items people wanted to see reviewed most of all.
I really wanted to love these.
I saw Laura from Buy Now Blog Later wearing them here and I think she looks just incredible.
They looked like a total winner. Well despite the ridiculous £38 price tag.
I couldn't have logged onto Space NK and pressed 'click to buy' any faster.
When I opened them I gasped.....
They are quite possibly the most beautiful colours I have ever seen. Especially the orange 'Flower Sorbet'.
The texture is like nothing I have tried before. It's not a gel, nor a cream, nor a mousse.
They swatch beautifully-I was so excited!
But I have tried everything and I cannot get these to even show up on my skin (inserts very sad faced emoji)
I have tapped in with my fingers, I have rubbed in with my fingers. I have tried to apply with my fingers with no blending or rubbing to let it just 'sit' on my skin. I have tried my stippling brush. I have tried my beauty blender. I have used a lot of product hoping the colour would eventually build up. Nada. Nothing. The product just disappears into my skin not even leaving barely a hint of colour.
Here I have literally a ton of Flower Sorbet on and as you can see, there's nothing there.
And the Frozen Petal shade doesn't fair much better-again a ton of product here but just a tiny flush of colour.
I am literally distraught because I absolutely love the colours and I want them to show on my cheeks! I am pale (NW15 in Mac foundation) so I thought these might be acid bright and need some careful blending but there's literally nothing to see here folks.
I have had a little look around the internet and they seem to fair better on olive skinned girls. I hope they do because the texture and colour in the little glass jar is beyond beautiful.
PS if you do want a neon orange blush then Jen at Vibrant, Vivacious, Veracious has the one for you.
