Brand: Ciaté London
Product: Dewy Blush Glossy Cheek Tint in Watermelon
Price: £19


I’m a big fan of dewy make-up. I have really dry skin, so I love make-up that feels hydrating and makes my face look bright and luminous. Ciaté London’s Dewy Blush Glossy Cheek Tint was gifted to me by my good friend and PR babe extraordinaire Lydia James, and it has made a fantastic addition to my dewy make-up collection. The colour really pops on my skin (it’s fantastic for dark skin) and makes my cheeks look so delectable like you could literally take a bite out of my cheeks. I’m not joking!

I’ve only been using it for a couple of months now. I took a long break from wearing make-up because I got bored of it. I’m also really lazy when it comes to make-up – I hate having to sit down and apply it. But this blush has made me feel really excited about wearing make-up again. It’s so light and easy to apply; a little goes a long way. 

I had never used a liquid blush before this but now I will never return to a powdered one. I am a convert! The consistency is perfect and doesn’t feel too oily or sticky on my skin. I also put it on my nose, and it gives me such a cute pinkish button nose. Your days are numbered, Rudolph.


If this product was a song it would be... “Solar Power” by Lorde!! Because the blush makes my face brighten up so much. I can’t wait to wear it in the summer and shine like the sun. 

The fictional character who would use this product is... Titus Andromedon from The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt would definitely use this product. He’s so chic! It would also look great on his skin.

The astrological sign of this product is... My product would 100 per cent be a Pisces because I am a Pisces, it is the best sign, and this is the best blush I’ve used!
