gloMinerals gloCheek Sheen in Peachy: Look familiar?

gloMinerals gloCheek Sheen in Peachy

I loved this gloMinerals gloCheek Sheen in "Peachy" the first time I set eyes on it. The colour is a gorgeous peachy pink with flecks of gold shimmer. It's designed to be a universally flattering shade for multi use on the cheeks, eyes and anywhere else you want a glow.

Does it remind you of anything? I'm pretty sure gloMinerals designed the colour to be as identical as possible to Nars The Multiple in "Orgasm".

See below for a swatch. It glides on easily without tugging the skin, and feels almost like a silky powder to touch. It feels cooling on the skin so it's really nice to use in the summer. The formula also contains antioxidants and green tea etc.

The only problem is how quickly the colour fades when I blend it! The colour is so beautiful but as soon as I touch it, the peachy pink colour almost disappears completely, leaving just the shimmer behind.

However, the colour is so foolproof that it doesn't need much blending, so I just lightly pat it around the edges with my fingertips, without moving the colour around too much on the apples of my cheeks. And if necessary, I just pat some more of the product on in the middle.

Here's what it looks like on the face...

Despite the fact that the colour fades too darned quickly, I love gloMinerals gloCheek Sheen! It really does illuminate the face. It's quite shimmery but I don't mind shimmer in the summer. I hate looking flat and matte in the summer... it makes my face look like an egg around all the other radiant, tanned people.

I think this product would be great over a normal blusher to add more dimension to it. That way, there's longer lasting colour as well as the nice glow.

gloMinerals is still pretty hard to get hold of in the UK, but it's definitely a brand to check out if you can as they have some really nice products. For stockists or mail order, call 020 7491 0150.

You can gorge on the rest of the gloMinerals products at www.glominerals.com (with a link to buy online as long as you're in the US). gloCheek Sheen is listed there at $22... it's probably a little more expensive in the UK, like most things!

  3. Before you mentioned Nars, I was just thinking that when I was reading the description! Have you tried Orgasm before? And if so, how does it compare to this product?

  4. I've been meaning to try the NARS multiple in Orgasm for ages, so this may be a good dupe. The colour looks really pretty on you, like a light wash of colour.

    E.L.F do a similar kind of product which I am going to try out.

    @Tammy: I've only tried Nars Orgasm on the back of my hand in a store, but I remember the colour looking very similar! Not sure about the texture and longevity though!
