Imagine my surprise when I went to the mail a couple of weeks ago and found an unexpected package addressed to moi! A gift from one of my friends who I met through my blog who I have never met in person. 😛 xoxo Wow, total surprise, totally unnecessary, but boy, do I love it! You know who you are, and thank you again!
I read a few reviews of Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cheek over the past couple of years, and it has been on my Wish List. The packaging is gorgeous, and definitely makes an impressive and lovely gift, as it comes in a pretty pink and gold-edged box with a sheer pink silky bag inside holding the lovely compact. Check this out!
The compact itself is something to show off. It’s an adorable, girly, brushed metal with pink, bejeweled compact. So cute! And there’s a handy mirror inside so you can whip it out to touch up in a restaurant, lol.
Now, I am the proud owner of the beautiful TT Dollskin blush in a shade called Feather, a apricot pink that sometimes looks deep (at night under lights) and sometimes lighter (in sunlight or daylight). It’s perfect for me, and I think it is a universally flattering shade.The blush itself is deeply pigmented. Feather has only the slightest amount of golden shimmer, just enough to give a healthy glow.
The powder is soft, finely milled and very easy to blend. The folks at Tarina Tarantino say it’s made with micronized or High Definition powders that make it easy to apply and blend.
The first time out, I appled it with a blush brush, and it was too much color for me. I switched to a fan brush so it doesn’t overpower my fair to light skin. But if you like a brighter look or have a deeper skin tone, try it with a blush brush.
Another thing that I love about this blush is that it is long lasting. It definitely wears for 8+ hours on my dry skin. If blush disappears on you, this would be a good one to try, and using a setting spray would make it really last forever.
Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cheek contains 0.2 oz/6 g. It’s made in Canada. I was interested to learn that it is distributed by Sephora. The price is $25, but it’s a beautiful splurge. So thank you again to my benefactress!!
Feather is also available as part of a Dollskin Cheek quad for $45.
