Edward Bess Moroccan Rose Blush

I’ve had this for a few weeks already. I stopped by the Edward Bess counter and asked what were some of the newer items in September and he stated that there’s new foundation in a compact…cream to powder finish and photo friendly. He also mentioned his newest blush in Moroccan Rose, which I purchased. The color didn’t seem like something I would wear (I usually do the usual baby pink or nude). I figured “well, I need to venture out of the box and this color looks pretty”.

I’m so glad I purchased it. It’s a beautiful rose/muave shade. The formula is beautiful too, creamy, soft, and pigmented. I didn’t think I would end up wearing it outside, but I did twice and it’s still a color I’m personally getting used to, but I definitely like it. 🙂 It’s funny because I have no problem wearing bright red lipstick, but this shade I was wondering “Do I look weird”? Silly me.

Below you’ll see how it compares to more well known colors:

Fantasia looks similar, but it is definitely warmer in person, as you can see it more in the picture without flash.
