Holiday Sparkle with Prescriptives

Prescriptives Cool Lustre Shimmer Cheek Color ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a gorgeous plummy pink with gold sparkle. It instantly reminded me of MAC’s Stark Naked Blush (swatch. They are very similar, though not exactly the same — but if you’ve always wanted Stark Naked (one of my favorite blushes!), this one is a nice substitute, even if it is also limited edition.

The texture of Cool Lustre is smooth, soft, and the color is noticeable. It’s not ultra pigmented like NARS’ blushes, but it has just the right amount of pigmentation to add plenty of pop to your cheeks–plus, you can always layer for deeper color.

    Aw that’s so pretty! They are already in the process of taking the counter out of our store :( So we never received this, so I think I will be ordering this online!

    That is such a pretty colour and it is not too shimmery. I think it would be a nice highlighter too for darker skin tones.

    looks very pretty. if i didn’t already have stark naked, this would be worth a look.

    This is very pretty, but I already have Stark Naked, so don’t need it.

    I got this too. I wanted to have something from their last:( collection. I wanted the cool e/s quad, but didn’t want to spend that much.

    That looks absolutely beautiful! Your product photos are always SO well done. It’s a very simple and pretty blush.
