Now I know what you are thinking, this blush extremely nude! It might work as a bronzer on some but definitely not on my tan Indian skintone. Well I agree with you, I did not buy this blush for it's intended purpose, but to use it as a foundation!! I love being inovative with makeup and think that many products in our collections can be used in so so many different ways. If you aren't a makeup addict like me, it's a great way to slim down your kit and use products up.
Since I ordered this straight off the Inglot website, I had no way of swatching the shade that I was ordering so I was a little doubtful but I had another idea for using this product if I found the shade to be too dark. Sneaky or what? :)
Let's see what the product looks like then, see below the swatches. I think it's a tad dark for me, and it's a little pink as well. But since it's nice and runny and hence easily blendable I decided to use it as my foundation yesterday and if it looked bad, it would be on to Plan B.
So what was the Plan B that I was referring to earlier? Mix this shade with a lighter more yellow based foundation that I own (e.g. Revlon's Nearly Naked) and voila I get my perfect shade. I may still employ this method and see how well it works.
So the moral of the story is, if you see a bargain somewhere think of what you could utilise the product as, don't just pass things up thinking "that wont work for me", it pays to have a "can make work" attitude.
