I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve gone through some crazy makeup styles. I wore nothing but pale powder foundation and jet-black eyeliner in high school. I wore nothing but bronzer and stark-white eyeliner in my early twenties. But there was one cosmetic that I could never bear to touch. Yes, my fear of blush was almost unshakable.
The second I saw it in the stores, images of sweet, elderly women with bright blue eye shadow and shocking pink circles on their cheeks would pop into my mind unbidden. When it came to blush, I had a full-fledged phobia. But all of that changed when I was introduced to the dazzling FlowerColor Cosmetics made by Ecco Bella.
FlowerColor Cosmetics combine mineral makeup with natural flower waxes to create gorgeous shades of eco-friendly blush, eye shadow, bronzer, shimmer dust and more.
The blush and eye shadow are sold to fit conveniently into the optional, fully recyclable Duo Paperback Compact to minimize waste. All Ecco Bella cosmetics are gluten-free and non-irritating to sensitive skin.
According to Ecco Bella, flower wax is nature’s best-kept secret. Flower wax is a delicate coating on flower petals that protects them from the elements. Combined with mineral makeup, it protects skin so that cosmetics last longer.
Ecco Bella states that the natural pigments in their cosmetics will automatically adjust to your skin tone. It sounded like a dream come true. But visions of clown cheeks continued to dance in my head.
Two swipes of my makeup brush later, my doubts were dispelled. I chose the Coral Rose blush because I had read an article that said coral was flattering to every skin tone. In my opinion, both the article and the claims of Ecco Bella are completely true.
This blush is absolutely amazing. With one quick brushstroke on each cheek and a few seconds of fingertip blending, I have a natural, healthy looking flush that lasts all day long.
On the first day I put it on, I went out for a drive with my husband. He looked over at me with an appraising eye and said, “You look good. You’ve got a little bit of color in your cheeks today. It looks great.”
At that moment, I knew my days of fearing blush were behind me. As a busy mother, I don’t have time to hunt through huge displays of cosmetics to find the ones that suit me. I certainly don’t have the desire to spend money on makeup that might not properly match my skin tone. Ecco Bella’s fantastic cosmetics have solved these problems for me.
These days, I no longer subscribe to crazy makeup trends. In fact, before Ecco Bella there were days that I left the house without any makeup whatsoever. But now I know that with just a touch of blush, I will look energetic, natural and a little more polished even if I’m carrying a crying baby and dragging a stubborn pre-schooler behind me. What more could any woman ask for?
