Korres Zea Mays Blush - No 44 Orange

Korres Orange, one of the first blushes I ever purchased, had been sitting at the bottom of my collection for years after I accidentally dropped and shattered it. I finally patched it up with a few drops of rubbing alcohol (instructions here) because it really is one of the most beautiful blushes I own. 

It looks scarily dark in the pan, but on the skin it shows up as a fluorescent pink-coral. It has gold shimmer running through it that brightens it up and gives a luminous effect on the cheeks. It is one of those blushes that lifts and brightens your face as soon as you apply it. Best of all, it has a completely silky invisible finish, so it blends right into the skin. 
Now that I have the full, intact blush again, I am going to wear it all throughout spring/summer. 
Love it!

  2. I think I need this blush in my life! My summer go to blush has always been NARS Taj Mahal. It is such a gorgeous burnt orange that makes your skin absolutely glow. I think it would look fab on you if you used it with a light hand (unless you already have it!).

  3. I have a Korres blush in the shade Natural and I love it too. Their blushes are so great, yet so underrated. Orange looks AMAZING on you! And can I just comment on your hair here? It looks perfect. :)

  5. Oh it looks great on you! So natural. I'm a big fan of peachy cheek colors - they give a really healthy glow. I use Mac's Peaches, a very similar color to this, and it looks wonderful on.

  11. Nice! It looks very pretty. I have been looking for a powder coral shaded blush. I really wanted to get another one by lovely me:ex from the face shop but would like to try some other brands too. I like the sound of the gold shimmer.
