The last time I was at Sephora, I found myself immediately drawn to the Lancome Cushion Blush Subtil. As somebody who has completely fallen for cushion products, I was intrigued by Lancome's version of a cushion blush and the second I swatched the shade 021 Sorbet Rose, I knew I had to have it!
Housed in the sleek black compact (complete with the iconic Lancome rose logo), you get a clear mirror, powder puff, and the actual blush itself enchased in a cushion, or "sponge". Unlike a lot of applicator tools that come with a product, I really enjoy applying the blush with the powder puff it comes with. The design also makes it much easier to touch up your blush if you are out and about - and as a beauty and fashion history nerd, I always think of flappers touching up their blush out in public in the 1920s when wearing makeup was still seen as scandalous, much less applying it outside for everybody to see (again... I'm a dork)!
Depending on how much pressure you apply to the cushion, the more product the puff picks up. Because of this, you have the option to wear the blush sheer or build up the pigmentation. This blush gave me a natural looking flush with a satin finish - no glitter, just a beautiful dewy sheen.
This was definitely a splurge for me, but the luxe packaging, cushion "technology", and beautiful dewy finish made this product worth it for me! If you are in the market for a high-end blush, I definitely recommend this!
