Every Halloween Grantaire plays a game called “How Far Can I Push Enjolras’s Buttons?”

To be fair, that’s a game he plays year-round, but Halloween comes with costumes, which is a bonus. This year he’s delighted to discover his Napoleon costume can totally be related to E’s Jedi Knight costume, vaguely.

Review || Rimmel Stay Blushed!

For the longest time, I thought Rimmel’s Stay Blushed! was a myth. They were released in the US a few months ago but I could not find them anywhere! But recently I was browsing the cosmetics section at KMart and there they were. 

Y'all should know by now that I am a lover of the Rimmel Stay Matte line. The Stay Matte Mousse Foundation has been a summer staple of mine. And of course the Stay Matte Pressed Powder is my favorite powder. So I was pretty pumped to give these a go.

Stay Blushed! is a liquid cheek tint that is available in five shades. Each tube is 0.47 fl oz and retails for around $2.99. Rimmel claims:

Perfect for any occasion: the blush blends instantly and seamlessly to create a long lasting, natural-looking flush of colour that lasts up to 24 hours. Ultra lightweight, won’t feel heavy.

I purchased two of the five colors: Sunkissed Cherry and Touch of Berry.

Here’s how they look fresh out the tube. Touch of Berry is on the left and Sunkissed Cherry is on the right.

Touch of Berry is a blue toned pink. The consistency is more on the liquid side. The liquid texture means that you have to layer it on more to see some color, but it’s still a pretty color on the skin.

Sunkissed Cherry is more of a peachy coral color (when I think of cherry I think of red). The texture is more of a mousse, similar to Rimmel’s Stay Matte Foundation. There is definitely more color payoff with this color. 

At first, they can be a little scary to use. But once you blend away, they really are pretty. They blend in really easy too. Like I said, you’ll have to layer up a Touch of Berry a little bit more, but overall a little bit of product goes a long way. Also, they have a slight floral scent, but it’s not overwhelming. I personally enjoy the smell.

Stay Blushed! has good lasting power. It not 24 hours of color, but they will last the day, especially when you wear a primer and foundation underneath. Often, I go a step further and layer a powder blush on top to keep my color lasting day to night.

Overall, I really love Stay Blushed! I did enjoy the texture of Sunkissed Cherry more than Touch of Berry. I think they’re great for the price and they’re really good if you’re a beginner just getting into liquid/cream cheek products. I definitely would recommend these and I am looking forward to purchasing the other three colors!

You ask me quietly to stay.

I answer with a soft okay.

Your warm hands are on my hips,

My parted mouth upon your lips.

I smile brightly as I feel warmth.

Outside there is a thunderstorm.

You whisper to me sweet words,

Some of which I have never heard.

You ask me softly if I am okay.

I tell you that I enjoy the rain.

You kiss my bare neck gently,

I listen to my heartbeat intently.

I am nervous and you know this.

But you calm me with a soft kiss.

We become one with our fierce love.

Your eyes meet mine and I blush.

You smile at me and I smile back.

For the first time, I don’t feel trapped.

I feel free with joy and love in my veins.

I feel absolutely no kind of pain.

The storm ends and sunlight slowly peaks out.

The sun shines on our flesh; I feel no doubt.

I look up at you and you look down at me.

You’re the most beautiful person, I’ll ever see.

You kiss me ardently upon my lips,

As you hold tightly onto my hips.

You whisper to me, asking if I’ll stay.

I smile at you and whisper always.

Blush: Powder, Cream, Liquid, Gel or Stain?

I’m obsessed with blush and if anyone ever saw my collection, I’d be blushing. Blush is often seen as a little old school especially since a flawless complexion without a hint of redness is what many of us strive for these days. But that doesn’t mean blush shouldn’t have a place in your makeup bag.

Blushes are no longer constrained to just powder, there are hundreds of different formulas and finishes you can dip your cheeks in, but some work a lot better than others.
