There's a good colour-range of Artistique blushers in the Surratt line, I opted for one of the palest blush shades, Duchesse (£23).
It's a light
peach with a satin finish that gives a lovely natural sheen to the skin,
perfect for lifting the complexion and adding a healthy warmth.
so light in colour I think this shade is best for fair skintones.
Swatched below and then blended out,
Its not chalky nor powdery and has a wonderfully smooth, silky texture
that glides on almost like a cream and has a very impressive long wear.
When I initially saw the Artistique Eyeshadow Doré Rose (£16) in the pan I was worried it would
be too similar to Idealist (reviewed here) but you can see in the swatch
(Doré Rose on the left) they are different enough to own both.
Doré Rose is a shimmery copper with a touch of rose gold. A really pretty shade but too warm for my skintone.
As with my other Surratt shadows this has a
lightweight, silky, non powdery texture which applies effortlessly.
Swatched below once and then swatched with a damp brush,
I remain really pleased with the Surratt line for the quality and
performance, though as the shadow colour wasn't right for me I just need to be a bit more careful in future with my selections.
