As you’d expect from the name, the new blushes were intended to be natural, buildable, and fool-proof — for a fresh, flawless, glow-from-within look. The powders are also oil-free, infused with vitamins and botanicals.
Second Skin Cheek Colours are $24 each, sold in individual compacts, though the pans (which are the same size as the eyeshadow pans) can be popped out and placed in custom palettes. 3-pan and 6-pan empty compacts are available for $10 each.
Barely Pink is a light, dusty-pink. Winter Bloom is sparkly, bronzed-pink, perhaps a bit like Chanel’s Tweed Ambre. Plum Radiance is a ruddy, plummy pink. Rose Petal is a brighter pale pink than Barely Pink, with a hint of warmth. Some liken Rose Petal to Benefit’s Thrrrob — in swatches, they don’t look exactly the same. I couldn’t speak to on-cheek performance. Tender Mauve is rose mauve, just what I think of when I hear the word mauve.
