Firstly, the reader wanted to know if After Sunset could be a little muddy and whether or not Island Rose would be too bright? Her skin is fair with a tendency to light ruddiness. I like Island Rose but I have mentioned before that I need to be careful with it. If I'm too heavy handed or haven't used foundation, this colour can make me look very flushed. I think for anyone that is prone to ruddiness, this could be an awkward colour. I tend to use in combination with bronzer to avoid looking like I've gone overboard with the rouge.
After Sunset is a harder colour to explain. It is quite brown but on my skin it pulls rosy so I don't find it looks muddy. I really like this cheek colour and I use it quite often as it gives a natural look. I would be very interested to hear from anyone that has used it and found it does pull too muddy on their complexion.
The question that I wanted to put to you all is a texture question. I was asked how the texture of the Compact Rouge compares to both BECCA and Le Metier de Beaute creme blushers. I only have the BECCA to compare to and wondered if anyone had experience of all three and could help? The reader finds BECCA and LMdB creme blushers too emollient. I fear that the Compact Rouge might be too emollient also but wondered what everyone else thought? I find the BECCA and Edward Bess quite similar in texture, I think that Edward Bess might have the edge actually but I don't find either to be too greasy or slippy on my skin. In the past, I found the MAC Blushcremes to have a texture that couldn't comfortably wear.
I would really appreciate your input on this one!
