Sanguine

Lethal Cosmetics Sanguine Magnetic Face Powder (Blush) ($14.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a brighter, medium red with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It appeared darker and more rusty in hue in the pan, but it was brighter and lighter when applied–it also looked redder overall on my cheeks.

It had buildable coverage from medium to fully opaque, though it was obviously a darker and more contrasting shade against my skin tone, which may have given the illusion of greater opacity. The texture was smooth, lightly emollient without being too firmly pressed into the pan, so I felt like I had good control over how much product was picked up on my brush. It applied evenly and diffused well, though I’d still say to use a lighter hand for more precise placement as it almost blended too well! The color showed signs of fading after nine hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$14.00/0.18 oz. - $77.78 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to blend "effortlessly" and "build" to a "luminous matte" finish and "any intensity with ease." In general, they had medium, buildable coverage that easily built up to mostly opaque to opaque coverage.

Per the brand, they recommend "tapping" rather than swirling one's brush, which I'd agree with for picking up more buildable pigment--swirling or heavier motions could yield more opaque coverage in one go (which could be desired).

The texture was moderately dense, smooth, and not powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan, so the product picked up well with more feathery brushes as well as denser brushes.

As I applied the powder and buffed it into my skin, they had a more semi-matte to natural matte finish--not flat or dry but not overly shimmery either. They looked more "melted" on my skin, which gave them a better and more flattering finish applied. They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before fading visibly.

Pretty, bit a but too pigmented for my taste. Besides, I do have my one perfect red blush in UD Quiver, and a deeper red in Clinique Cola Pop, so I’m good!

I’m afraid I don’t find any of these blushes particularly flattering due to their ultra-pigmentation. (I realize you’re using a heavier hand in order to show the colour, Christine. 🙂) The only way I could get any of them to work on my pale skin would be to hover my brush 6″ above the surface of the powder, and hope that a couple of colour molecules jump up onto the bristles for me to use!

The colour and finish is gorgeous, however I suspect this would just look “sunburny” on me. Probably stunning on richer skintones though! Very luscious. Yum.
