I was so excited when By Terry came out with these new Cellularose Blush Glaces (.25oz, $58). I wanted the shade Frozen Petal for the longest but, it was always sold out. One day I was browsing the Space NK website and it was in stock and calling my name! This formula is a lot different then any other “cream” blush mainly because it’s not a cream. It is more like a gel blush. It is very light weight and meant to give a watercolor effect for a nice glow. It does just that. Applied to the cheeks it is very sheer but, you can build it up. I like to use a small stippling brush, like a MAC 130. When I use my finger I feel like it takes longer to build up the color. I do about two applications only because it is very tacky. It doesn’t really dry down. I have tried three coats but, then it looked a bit odd and my hair kept getting stuck in it. The color itself is gorgeous and I really like the way it looks on the cheeks. I just wish it had a better drying power. I think this is great for the no makeup, makeup look I’ve been going for lately. This works best over a liquid foundation. Over powder it looks funny and makes the foundation break down. Overall I really enjoy the concept of the blush but, for the price I am still a bit iffy. I would give it 3.5 stars out of 5.
