TBN: Beautiful Blush Edition- Charlotte Tilbury Sex On Fire Review

For the past year I've been wearing Charlotte Tilbury's Cheek to Chic in the colour Ecstasy because it's the most classic, versatile colour I could find. It complements every colour on the eyes and lips, whether it's cool or warm. I felt, however, that it was a bit boring. It was dependable and safe but not at all exciting.

Before that, I exclusively used MAC and L'Oréal blushes because the formulas are always super smooth. But I had never fallen in love with a blusher. Everything ranged from clown, to meh, to ok, to good but never great.

Until now, that is. I was very lucky to get a Tilbury blusher in her recent Mystery Box (full review coming soon). When I saw the colour, I thought it was weird and that it wouldn't show up on the cheeks. It's sensationally called Sex On Fire. It should be called 'Born with Amazing Skin'. Because that's what you look like wearing it.

As seen in the photo below, this doesn't make you look like you're performing at the circus.

It's super easy to get it right, because its tone is so smooth and soft, it lights up your face without throwing the balance off. You only need two swipes on each cheek, but if you put on more, it's not too much. If you're afraid of blushers, this is the one for you. Now, for the colour: you look slightly flushed, completely natural and radiant without any glittery/shimmery nonsense. How does it do it? I have no idea. But dang it, this formula is genius.
