Week 2, Day 1. DC'd and LE Blush--Giorgio Armani #12

To start off Seven Days of Discontinued and Limited Edition Blush, I chose Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush #12.  It was part of  GA's Fall 2009 collection and is a very soft lilac pink color.  Like all of the GA Blushes, it is more sheer than heavily pigmented.  However, using a GA blush is like heaven, they are silky smooth and blend beautifully, they are never chalky or gritty.  Here's what #12 looks like up close:

As you can see from the swatch (it's the one on the left!), it is a delicate, soft cool-pink with a hint of lilac.  There is a tiny bit of shimmer, but it doesn't look shimmery on the cheek, just a bit glowy. 

It probably wouldn't show up on those with darker skintones, but for fair to medium-light girls, it should give a lovely, soft pink, glow.  Here's the blushes for the week--tomorrow is #2--Chanel Narcisse Joues Contraste, US version.


  1. Oh, gorgeous! I love blushes with a bit of periwinkle in them, I feel the need to someday try them.

  2. I didn't realize this was LE when it came out and put off buying it. I really regret it! Please post dupes if you can!

  3. Man, this is probably the most gorgeous blush I've seen!!
