Besides being free of waxes that can irritate the skin, the sticks are also phthalate, paraben, and preservative-free, and are all packaged in gorgeous crushed shell tubes comprised largely of mother of pearl sustainably-sourced shells from the Philippines. Each shade comes in one of the three beautiful shell shades, with nine total shades total, including a bronzer and a highlighter.
I tried the stick in “Georgia,” a stunning bright pink shade that easily slid across my cheeks and with one swipe created the much-desired complimentary rosy glow. Despite the hydrating formula, when applied to a light skincare base of a CC Cream the blush stick had a surprisingly long-wear lifespan, making it through the day without a touch up. I’m certainly hooked, and can’t wait to show off this gorgeous specimen of a blush on my vanity, perhaps doubling it up from time to time to add a little flush of color to my lips as well.
