When I went to make my first purchase from Fyrinnae, one thing I was absolutely sure I wanted to stick in my cart was the blush from their Winter 2013 collection called Nordic Angel. Fyrinnae describes it as a vibrant peachy pink, and the shade is oh so wearable. It has wonderful pigmentation, a matte finish, and a budget-friendly price of $6.50.
It’s easy to apply and blend on skin, and it lasts all day. I don’t really have a bad word to say about the formula … it’s basically the perfect version of itself. I think it’s incredibly pretty and easy to wear on a day-to-day basis. The only issue for me is that although the full size jar has a sifter, there’s no twisting mechanism to open and close it, so traveling with it is pretty much out of the question for me. I don’t want too much of the product accumulating on top of the sifter.
Isn’t that vibrant? That’s just one swipe of a finger. The finish is matte but it isn’t fully matte, it’s more of a natural matte. It won’t add any shine to skin, but it won’t totally kill skin’s natural level of luminosity. I tend to gravitate towards blushes with a bit of a glow, but this finish is still super flattering. My favorite way to apply it at the moment is to get a bit on my Eco Tools blush brush and stamp it onto the high points of the apples of my cheeks to simulate a natural flush.
In the photos, I’m also wearing: DreamWorld Hermetica foundation in Rhea II C (review), DreamWorld Hermetica Illuminating Glow finishing powder in Destiny (review), Maybelline eye and brow pencil in Blonde, L’Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes mascara in Blackest Black (review) and some plain lip balm.
Update: Another good spot to see me wearing the blush is here.
Nordic Angel is available at Fyrinnae and costs $1.75 for a sample jar or $6.50 for a full size. Couldn’t get much better than that!
Have you tried any Fyrinnae blushes? Do you have a current favorite go-to blush?
