They Say, I Say: Daniel Sandler Watercolour in Cherub

 I have wanted one of these watercolours for so so long-I am not even sure why but I think whenever I read something about them ( which is not often) I am just really taken in by the bottle idea, and the shades on offer. So when my little bro asked me what I could get for my bday ( and something that wouldn't break his poor student bank) I knew what I wanted.

Daniel Sandler is a professional Celeb makeup artist with a well known range in mineral make up and brushes. With 20 years in the business, he obviously knows a thing or two about what does and doesn't work so I was mega excited to get my hands on one of his products.

The Watercolour blusher was hailed by Cosmopolitan Magazine last year as the blusher of the year and are no stranger to Brides needing something to last the big day.
With Watercolour you can say goodbye to those problems as it not only gives you amazing cheeks that last all day long but they’re also a dream to apply, and with 7 divine shades to suit all skin tones you’re guaranteed to look your most beautiful 24/7
They Say:

"I created Watercolour fluid blusher for women for two reasons: Firstly, bronzing sticks and most cream formulas start off looking sensational but they wear off too quickly and you need to re-apply. Secondly, liquid or gel cheek stains have been a nightmare to blend as they dry so quickly, even for me as a professional, and the shades are very limited.

With Watercolour you can say goodbye to those problems as it not only gives you amazing cheeks that last all day long but they’re also a dream to apply, and with 7 divine shades to suit all skin tones you’re guaranteed to look your most beautiful 24/7."

Daniel Sandler's award winning Watercolour fluid Blush in shade Cherub which is our Number One Best Seller. A delicate sheer, pastel pink that's perfect for fair or medium skin tones that want the daintiest, youthful flush of colour.

I say:

I adore this stuff, I really do. It takes a little bit of time to get used to how the product comes out and how best to apply it, but once you have that down pat you are on to a winner.  The bottle is smaller in real life than I though but when you see how much product you actually need it is not a bad thing- just incredibly easy to carry around if needs be. You have to make sure to remember to shake the product really well before opening as you want the product to mix, then you squeeze a tiny dot of the liquid on to the back of your hand, direct on to the brush or to your fingertips. Out of all the methods I definitely prefer dropping a tiny amount on to my MAC 188 brush and swirling on to the cheeks that way. Due to the incredible staying power of this stuff it is too easy to stain your fingers or hands with the stuff!

So how does it apply.... like a dream. It is amazing how easy to blend out this stuff is, it does not just set like a tint or even a cream blusher often does, I find in the morning I have enough time to work it to the level I want, not only that but because of the nature of it but you can really build it quite easily to the level you want. It is by far the most  'natural flush' I have ever achieved with out putting in a lot of effort and boy does this stuff last. I was amazed at how flawless this looked more than ten hours later- I had topped mine up in the morning with a little powder blush ( there is absolutely NO need for this, I just have a blusher problem) but of course by the end of a very long day it was only the Watercolour visible and in place. I went for the shade Cherub which is described as:

The Number One Best Seller. a delicate sheer, pastel pink that’s perfect for fair / medium skin tones that want the daintiest, youthful flush of colour.

I think it is a darling colour. I think it might be a touch too pale on me when I am really tanned so of course that means I MUST dabble in another colours very soon and honestly I cannot wait. For how much they cost I honestly think this one small bottle would last me an eternity so it is well worth it. Here are a few rough snaps ( post gym so don't laugh!) but you can see how it well it has lasted a full day.



That is alot of my face- AHHHHHH Sorry! Just wanted to show it in a few lights and get a good picture of how nice a 'wash' it really gives.

Had anyone else turned their hand to Watercolouring?

Much love
