Darling Girl Baby Blush - Right Meow Swatches & Review08:00
Purchased with blogger discount
For someone who loves a good multitasker, it took me an embarrassingly long time to try Darling Girl's Baby Blushes! Launched earlier this year, they're a line of lip and cheek products which offer buildable colour infused with skin nourishing ingredients. Since I'm always a simpering fangirl for coral, I decided to go with Right Meow for my first pick!
Baby Blushes come in a squeeze tube with a doefoot applicator wand. This doubles your application options as not everyone is keen to apply the same product to their lips and cheeks, so Darling Girl suggest squeezing product directly from the tube in this case. Otherwise, simply dab the doefoot applicator on cheeks and blend out with a brush or fingers - I like the ELF stippling brush but it works just as well with your fingers. The formula is such that it doesn't displace your base products when you blend with your fingers the way some cream blushes do. The doefoot applicator makes it super easy to apply Baby Blush evenly and precisely to lips, no lip brushes were involved in the making of the below lip swatch :)

From the Darling Girl website:Infused with argan oil and orange peel butter, this tinted balm starts as a soft cream and melts into a creamy oil for a natural looking pop of color. Oh and did I forget to mention it smells delightful, just like fresh picked oranges!
Right Meow is described as a 'warm coral-y pink'. It's super pigmented and glossy on the lips yet it blends out effortlessly for a very natural and slightly dewy flush on cheeks. On my lips, it lasted for just under four hours without feathering or being drying, while on my cheeks it wore for a little over ten hours, fading evenly over the course of wear.
You have to love oranges to enjoy the Baby Blushes. The orange scent is very strong, and while I do like oranges, I wish the scent was a bit more subdued. I don't notice the fragrance much past application when worn on my cheeks, but worn on the lips, it does linger quite a lot - unsurprisingly with it right under your nose!
