Is This the Most Boring Blush in History?

Sue Devitt Gel-to-Powder Blush
I'll be the very first to admit that when I think of Sue Devitt (some of you--hell, many of you may be asking 'who?' 'what?') I don't automatically think of anything special or particularly exciting. The brand doesn't bring up connotations of luxury or refinement in my mind, like Chanel or Guerlain do. And it doesn't seem to have a massive following or a cult product that the brand is known for (hello, NARS Orgasm).


As you can see by the picture above, which is a plain, silver, half-dollar size round compact, their products look pretty boring and run-of-the-mill. BUT, for anyone looking to discover some new, very unique, and reasonable priced items: Sue is your gal!

Gel-to-Powder Blush in Marion Reef
Behold my latest Sue Devitt purchase: a Gel-to-Powder Blush in the shade 'Marion Reef.' This is a stunning bright raspberry shade, perfect for cool tone gals. The formula is quite unique, as it is most definitely a gel formulation, but upon applying to the skin, it quickly sets as a light powder finish.

The color may appear scary in the pan, but use a light hand and it blends like a dream! It is by far the most easily blendable cream/gel blush I have ever encountered. It also has great lasting power, even on oily skin like mine. The closest product I can compare it to for its look on the face is a Becca Beach Tint, which I also love--they both give a tremendously natural looking flush to the face, but still give the cheeks a noticeable color. 



I am quite pleased with this purchase, especially as one of my resolutions this year was to branch out and try new products and new brands. This isn't my first Sue Devitt outing, but I am guessing that many have never heard of or tried the brand, which is a shame. The one difficulty is that now that Sue Devitt has left most ULTAs (with that said, though, you may still be able to find displays at ULTA and they are likely to be marked down--they just won't necessarily carry the full line as they aren't restocking the product) is that it might be a bit difficult to find the products in stores. However, Macy's does carry the line through their website, as does Beauty.com.
