Currently Obsessing Over: Catrice Illuminating Blush (I'm Nuts About You)

Friday, November 07, 2014

Hello ladies, 
allow me to tell you a few things about a product that completely stole my heart and my cheeks; Catrice Illuminating Blush in the shade I'm Nuts About You (and yes, I'm utterly nuts about it).


I first saw these Illuminating Blushes over at Mateja's blog (she also wrote a review and is sharing my obsession over this blush, here) and in that moment I knew I had to have them. I decided to only buy one of them to see how I'll like it, but you can bet that the other two shades are going to be mine as well.
The idea behind these blushes is that they have a subtle shimmer and pearl effect for a radiant and defined complexion; perfectly highlights cheek bones and creates a fresh look.
You get 4.5g / 0.15 oz of product and they retail for around 5€ in Müller.
The packaging isn't anything special, just a clear plastic without a mirror or a brush. Since I've been using it so much and carrying around with me, I also saw that the lid scratches easily. This isn't something that would bother me, but I just wanted to put it out there.


I decided to get the shade I'm Nuts About You since it seemed like the most ''autumnal'' shade of them all, and because I wanted something very natural looking for ever day wear. 
I would describe this shade as a darker, mauve pink that looks very natural on your cheeks. It has a lot of reflective shimmer in it, and since these aren't chunky, they create a very subtle highlight that just lifts and wakes up your entire face.
I also find that because of its shade, it does actually defines your cheek bones a bit, so I usually skip contouring or bronzing when I'm wearing it.
The pigmentation is also lovely; it's pigmented enough to get a nice flush of colour without building it up, yet not so crazily pigmented you would end up looking like a clown or that you would have to be really careful while applying it. 
If you want to get a more vibrant shade, you can easily build it up and it's also extremely easy to blend and not even a bit powdery.
I like to apply it with the Real Techniques Cheek brush from the Nic Pick's set as it packs on just the right amount of product for me. 
It last all day on my cheeks, but then again most blushes do, so maybe I'm not the best judge of its longevity. 

It's becoming a habit, reaching for it, and I've been wearing it almost every day for more than a month now. Which for me, self-proclaimed blush addict & hoarder says a lot.
Since it gives your cheeks such a natural flush of colour, I find myself wearing it even on makeup free days as it makes me look awake, healthy and fresh
I know it looks very average in the pan and you're probably wondering why I'm raving about it so much, but trust me when I say YOU NEED THIS BLUSH IN YOUR LIFE! Go and get it now!
I promise you won't regret buying it and if you for some reason happen to do, just send it over to me, because I'm seriously thinking about making a stash of it due to fear of it being discontinued in the future.

What's your favourite blush at the moment?

  1. Ful ti lepo pristaja. Sem ga občudovala že pri Mateji, priznam pa, da je to tak odtenek, po katerem jaz ne bi posegla, če bi ga videla v trgovini. Je pa pri meni trenutno aktualen odtenek Coral Me Maybe, skoz ga nosim.

    1. It's a German brand and some European drugstores sell their products, that's probably why you didn't heard of them before. They have very affordable but amazing products, including this one :)

  3. Got it! Že hitim:) Ne...res mi je všeč ta odtenek. Že ko sem ga videla na Mateji. Včasih je težko najti rdečilo, ki ni ne roza in ne peach ampak je bolj kot ne nek nevtralen odtenek, ki je sam po sebi contour - kot si omenila:). Res super odtenek za jesen in nas bolj blede:)

  4. Noro lep odtenek. Všeč mi je ker ni roza, niti preveč oranžen, ampak nekaj vmes. Mislim, da nujno potrebujem to rdečilo. :)

  10. Ok.. Zdaj bom pa očitno res mogla it jaz tuj po njega :)) čeprav mi je takoj v oči padel, ga še nisem kupila :) hihi.. In ta odtenek je popoln! Zadnje čase se nagibam k bolj oranžkastim blushem, ta pa je nekaj vmes tak da je res idealen! Škoda (ali še dobro) da več nisem v mb, da bi lahko kdajkoli šla v muller :)) zelo ti pristoji :)

  12. Res ti paše!

    Jaz imam enega drugega, bolj pink (morem pogledati ime), ki mi je tudi zelo všeč. Malo me spominja na mojo ex stalnico Bourjois blush. Morem preveriti, če je vsaj malo podoben.
