Paris Skies

Sydney Grace Paris Skies Pressed Blush ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a soft, medium mauve with cooler undertones and warmer, pale golden shimmer throughout. It straddled the line between pink and lavender to me (and the two merged gives me more mauve-vibes as a result). The warmer, but contrasting, shimmer gave it the effect of a two-in-one product where there was a distinctive, golden highlight but a definite, mauve blush tone below.

The texture was smooth, cream-like, and dense without being too thick or too firmly pressed into the pan. It had opaque color coverage that was easy to apply and blend out (or use with a lighter hand for sheerer coverage). This shade stayed on beautifully for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

Oh wow I honestly did not think there was a way to make a unique blush anymore but this one does it so beautifully. I do think I will try replicating this with a mauve blush and pale gold highlight though as I cannot justify buying another blush 😭

I only have one SG blush, always and forever. It looks dark in their photo, but it is invisible on me. I was shocked. This looks great, but I’m leery. I have the Fenty dupe, but suspect it would not be a dupe on me, far lighter and pinker. I use the other side of Poolside far more often. Maybe someday.

Good to note that – I have some more SG blushes on the way (I could have sworn I bought them awhile ago, but apparently not so much, so SG is sending me some!) – I’ll keep an eye on that one!

Oh man, what a stunner this is! Love it! Not sure how great it would look on me, but I’m willing to give it a shot and hope it works!

oooh I might need this one. What a beautiful dimensional blush—and bonus, it’s a mauve! I want to look like a turn-of-the-century face on a faded ephemeral tin of like smelling salts or whatever people got tins of back then. I’m an absolute sucker for cool-toned blushes.

I can’t see the gold shimmer. Is this one of those that don’t show on camera?

I’m looking forward to more SD blush reviews!

What a lovely blush! I feel I need this in my life, but I find the postage from SG so expensive that I don’t buy from her. It’s such a pity as I love so many of her eye shadows and now this! Maybe in February, as this month and January are months with so many bills to pay.

I have this from the cool mystery bag that was offered this summer. It is very pretty and unique, but it can look like a bruise on my face if I’m not careful.
