Suqqu Spring: Nuancing Cheeks Ex-01 Botaniro

The three blush compacts launched with the Spring collection are all limited edition. I bought the lightest, coolest looking shade, EX-01 Botaniro (£38).
Though the colour initially looks rather similar to all the other cool toned pinks on the market, as someone who has a difficult time wearing pinks due to them turning too warm, making me look ruddy or looking too bright/harsh, this has been a great find.
It does not turn colour on me and melds in with the skin giving a cool, natural pink flush.
The colour are both cool, candy floss pinks of differing degrees. The left side of the palette has an almost textured look to it and is more pigmented with a satin finish, the right has a smooth look, pigment is more subtle and the finish is slightly shimmery with a few touches of silver sparkle (I don't find this sparkle imparts on the skin and I can only see a glow).
Swatches below L-R: Left shade, right shade, shades mixed
I have mostly been using this both shades layered, though the colours work well used alone.
Swatched below for colour comparison L-R:By Terry Cheek to Cheek Rose, Suqqu Botaniro shades mixed, Rouge Bunny Rouge Gracilis.
Suqqu blushes have a smooth texture, they blend beautifully and there is never ever any effort required with application.
