I've been feeling distinctly Rydell High recently, all blushed, flushed and bright, a 50's school girl who wears her boyfriend's pin and just had her first kiss. It's this Bésame Cream Rouge in Crimson*, which looks like one of the most terrifying colours I've ever seen, but applies like I'm a teenager staring dreamily at her boyfriend during a night at the drive-in movies.
It's one of those multi-use types I love so much, where I can wear matching hers and hers cheeks and lips and feel ridiculously pretty and flushed - the type of flush which is sweet and youthful rather than floozy or pantomime. It blends to this transparent, gel kind of blush, and sits lightly on the skin without feeling heavy and has been perfect succour for the cold winter nights drawing in, and frosty mornings miserably attacking the car with a scraper and some de-icer.
Sometimes you feel like a beauty product was just made for you and you alone, and this is one of those: a cherry red flush makes me feel like the pony-tailed ingénue straight out of the 50's, twirling her hair and making eyes at a boy over some ice cream sundaes.
Even though it's kind of not the time to say it, HAPPY CHRISTMAS! I hope you all have a lovely time and enjoy it, whatever you're doing. I just ate a rather large cheese fondue, had some wine and curled up with the cat and her pink nose and paws. Perfect :)
