After months of stalking eBay I finally managed to find another UK-based seller who had a Bonne Bell Blushing Gel in Peach. The gel blushes are really hard to come by on eBay. I managed to get Peach for $3 and free shipping. Awesome deal!
The Bonne Bell Peach gel blush is a transparent bright orange in the tube with no shimmer or sparkle, and it has that same watery gel texture and subtle powder fresh scent as the Bonne Bell Red gel blush. It feels weightless on the skin after it’s blended out, and once it’s set it’s completely dry to the touch. There is no stickiness, dewiness or sheen to this product. This blush dries totally matte, as if the skin blushed that color naturally. Peach goes on sheer but, just like Red, the color is buildable.
If you’ve already read my blog entry about the Bonne Bell Blushing Gel in Red you know that I loved the formula and color payoff but that that particular shade didn’t suit me. Well, I finally found one that does: Peach.
I’ve discovered lately that blushes that are orange or peach (that lean more on the orange side) are extremely flattering on me. I still like pink blushes but, strangely, there’s just something about orange and peach that brightens up my complexion and looks so much more natural, fresh and healthy. If I’m not careful, pinks, berries, and mauves can come out looking a little ruddy or bruise-like on my face but oranges, in comparison, require much less effort to look good…for me at least. Loves. And now that I know what colors work for my skin tone I want to collect all the orange blushes in the world! I’ve updated my wish list in the sidebar and as you can see I’m craving lots of orange and peachy orange blushes. Yum.
Compared to the Red gel blush, the Peach gel blush doesn’t set/stain as quickly. If you take a look at the blended out swatches of the Red gel blush below, you can see a small dark spot in the center of the blended area where the Red gel blush had already begun to set before I got around to blending it. However, there’s no such dark spot on the Peach side. I love it and totally recommend it!
