Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in Passion

daniel sandler watercolour blush review passion
The Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blushes (£15.50 or $26 on Urban Outfitters) have been on my wish list for ages. I don't know what caused such a fervent desire to own one of these. Maybe it was seeing the Pixiwoo sisters use them in their video over the years or the curiosity of trying a liquid blush. I have my fair experience with cream, gel, and even mousse blushes, but not liquid. These are difficult to acquire in the U.S. so I was able to try this thanks to the awesome Latasha.

The image on the left shows how the pigment separates from the rest of the liquid after sitting unused for a while. A quick shake incorporates the blush once again. The image on the right is the swatch, of course.

I was hesitant that, since this is a liquid, it would act like a stain (similar to Benefit's Benetint). The reason I dislike Benetint and all products like it is that they tend to go on patchy and dry quickly. This Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush is nothing like that. It blends easily because it has a very emollient velvety texture. You could apply it with your fingers if you wanted to and wouldn't be met with much resistance. Still, I prefer applying this with a brush. The liquid is pigmented but semi-opaque so you don't have to worry about overdoing it. This particular color, Passion, is like a subtler liquid version of NARS Orgasm. It's a peachy-pink base with micro gold shimmer. 

So what are the selling points of a liquid blush? Well, the consistency is so thin that it seems to literally sink into the skin and looks very natural and radiant. Secondly, this blush lasts hours and hours on me. The Watercolour Blushes come in both matte and shimmery shades. The price point is quite high, specially if you're a U.S. buyer having to deal with currency exchange rates. Regardless, they are amazing quality and will last you a long time. I typically only use 2-3 drops to do both cheeks.

    1. Thank you! I was scared too. I thought that it would be like a stain which dries fast and is hard to blend but this was so smooth!

  5. Omgosh, this looks sooo natural and skin like and like a satin veil on your cheeks! Totally in love with this color and I think I'm more likely to try this than creams because I don't like the thought of something so thick and staining. This looks beautiful! Totally will try ordering next time from asos if it's still selling! ^^

  12. This looks so natural and pretty on you Coco!! If I were more of a blush fanatic I'd probably go for one of these but, thankfully for my bank account, I don't go too nuts over cheek products :)

  13. I also own Daniel Sandler blushes and I truly adore them.
    The ones I own are Cherub, Angel and Flush. But I will definitly buy some more soon (e.g. Truth and So Pretty). They are just too perfect for Summer.

  20. Oh god I HATE the Benefit tints with the intensity of a thousand suns. You can also get these blushes off ASOS, btw. I've been meaning to pick up one for myself, but I'm really glad they're nothing like the Benefit tints! Also, this is a gorgeous shade!
