Giorgio Armani Transluminence Face Palette

A Shy Blush for Pale Beauties

Giorgio Armani Transluminence Face Palette ($49.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a muted rose with peachiness. It has a satin-matte finish, and it applies very sheerly on the face. It is a called a sheer blush, however, so it was rather expected. It does provide some color on my medium skin tone, but it is certainly a subtle effect. I could see lighter skin tones really working well with this shade for a pop of color good for everyday looks. The sheen is soft and barely-there but delivers a glowiness when applied to cheeks.  Though the texture was silky smooth, it did feel a little powdery, but because the formula is sheer, it is very easy to blend.

  • Product: 26/30
  • Value: 7/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

final thoughts: The blush has a very smooth, soft texture though it’s almost chalky on my medium skin-tone, which is why I think this could easily be a much loved item in paler beauties’ stashes while not so favored if you have a darker skin tone.

    Your Eye Make Up looks GORGEOUS there Christine!

    The blush really complements the overall appaerance of the Look as well as you skintone. It is a really lovely shade although I probably won’t go for it.
