I have included another wonderfully makeup addicted blogger to my nefarious scheme to play with as many makeup as possible aka Project Swap by convincing Joy from Look Nook Hook to part with her Frantic Pink.
I confess, Joy, I have been eyeing your Frantic Pink since I got a good look at it when we hauled together from Sak's Fifth Avenue.
I was very sad that it didn't show up well on Joy. Check out her post here. I was very determined to see for myself.
I prefer matte blushes honestly because sometimes shimmery blushes just make me look greasy. If I'm not mistaken Tom Ford blushes are generally shimmery. I have to say though the shimmer is subtle and instead of making me look greasy, it gives my cheeks a nice subtle glow.
Yup the blush swatches don't look like much I admit. It is a subtle warm pinky blush.
I used my Koyudo blush brush. (Thank you again dear Nonno for steering me towards Koyudo.) Every time I use my Koyudo blush I congratulate myself for being at the right place at the right time. (Isetan has Japanese fairs regularly and Koyudo is sold during these fairs.)
The trick to getting Frantic Pink to show up is to use a nice stiff blush brush to pick up enough pigment. It might not show up much on my cheek swatches but I do see the warm pink showing up and I must say I love how it looks on me.
You might want to skip Frantic Pink if you are of darker skin tone though. I'm between a NC30 and NC35. If you prefer a brighter and more pigmented blush shade might I suggest Flush or even Love Lust.
Would I get Frantic Pink for myself? I might but not right now. Now that I have satisfied my curiosity with it, I rather buy a different brand. But I see myself eventually owning it.
