A Steal From Drugstore.com
Years ago, Bergdorf Goodman carried a line of cosmetics by makeup artist and brow guru Ramy Gafni. The hues had cheeky names like Chutzpah, and the line seemed well-edited and quite wearable, if not ordinary. Duane Reade, an NYC drug store chain who's sheer number of outlets seems to rival Starbucks, started making over some of its stores, stocking them with high end cosmetics from lines like Becca, 100% Pure and Ramy. I stumbled across the Whipped Liqui-Air Mousse blushes, silicone based cream blushes in wand-style tubes and found them tempting, but I wasn't ready to shell out the money.
Lo and behold, as I was going through the sale offerings on drugstore.com during the Beauty.com Friends and Family event, I found this blush in the shade Alive on sale for just $4.99 and scooped it up. Alive is a bronzy peachy shade, definitely on the warm side, that goes on and blends easily thanks to the silicone base. Subtle reflective particles impart a glow and the shade sheers down nicely for the palest complexions. A steal at under 5 bucks!
