Swatch: Rock & Republic Contrived Pressed Blush - All Nighter

When I saw a lot of blogs featuring Rock & Republic blushes and saying how great and beautiful the blushes are, I'm really intrigued to have one. Though, knowing how hard it is to get R&R outside US, I didn't have much hope. But being a sweetheart that she is, May got one for me to try, and she picked a blush shade that she thought I don't have, and I really don't! All Nighter is a really gorgeous orange blush with a hint of golden sheen, it's a really beautiful shade and I love it to bits. Thank you love!

Here are some pics for the blush!

You can see how pigmented the blush is! I believe it's the most pigmented blush I've ever tried. The golden sheen is barely noticed on the without-flash pic, but on the with-flash pic, it has a hint of glow and it's really pretty! The staying power is really impressive, it stays all day long on me and I have oily skin! I can't rave this blush enough. Not to mention that the packaging is gorgeous. Clearly, it's my new fave blush :D

The rest of the goodies from May:
Thank you so much, May!!

I love this blush. I always have to be extra careful when applying, even with a stipple brush, but it looks amazing.
The care bundle you got is really sweet.

glad you were able to get your hands on an R&R blush :) May got a pretty shade for you!

RicAdeMus said...

It comes in a very cool case, it could be a guy's pocket watch or belt buckle. Maybe they could be recycled for a 2nd purpose. =)

About Christmas memories, some of the best involved beating my older brothers on whatever new game we happened to get as a present. Haha!
