Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush #2

i'm such a blush-junkie these days! blushes - brushes - eyeshadows. that's everything to me (make-up-wise, ;) ). and so i fell for this beauty, the Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush #2.
i couldn't see it in real live before, but as i wanted a soft peach blush to accompany my Sheer Blush #10, which is rather pinky, i didn't doubt my choice.
i ordered it on douglas.de, the only accessible GA-retailer for me. with some voucher codes, i could get a few goodies and 5€ less, too (use the code 155DEDM).
  • KLP589 for a Kiehl's deluxe sample set with Ultra Facial Moisturizer (30ml) + Creme De Corps (30ml)
  • HRM456 for a Helena Rubinstein set with miniature lipstick and biphase eye make up remover
  • mobil548 for a Tommy Hilfiger Woman rollerball edp 7ml
this blush contains 6g and costs 41.95€. it's housing in an elegant matte black case with a full size mirror and doesn't come with an applicator. the packaging is quite sturdy and high quality.
the colour of the blusher itself is a light peachy pink, it's lighter and less peachy but more pastell-y than i have expected. it reminds me of swatches i've seen of NARS Sex Appeal blush which i don't own. it has some crystal sparkle and shimmer bits in it, but applies as a satin finish with a hint of a dewy sheen. this shade is a bit more powdery than the other Armani blush i own.
it's finely milled and applies evenly. the light colour prevents me on getting too much or look overdone with it, since it's a very subtle peachy pink wash. the colour develops into a more peachy glow on my cheeks after some time, i don't experience colour-fading with this. it's a good everyday/every look/every occasion shade, but may not work for very deep skin tones, though, and could get too chalky and greyish on NC40+ girls. 

all in all i prefer the Sheer Blush #10 yet, i'm still waiting to be wowed by this shade.

this is how it looks applied:

comparison swatches:
Laura Mercier Orange Blossom - Giorgio Armani #2 - Essence eyeshadow Go All Girlie - Guerlain Caresse De L'Aube
Laura Mercier Orange Blossom - Giorgio Armani #2 - Essence eyeshadow Go All Girlie - Guerlain Caresse De L'Aube (mixed together)
it's most similar to the eyeshadow by Essence (which i have also showed you some days ago) but is slightly peachier and less shimmery.

do you think that i still "need" NARS Sex Appeal when i have this one here?


  1. Die Farben sind aber auch wirklich wunderschön und Deine beiden Bilder super süß! Dein AMU sieht auch sehr hübsch aus.

  2. Ich find ihn sehr hübsch! Außerdem ist es total angenehm, den Blush auch auf den Wangen aufgetragen zu sehen und nicht nur anhand von Swatches auf dem Arm. Obwohl bei dir echt alles toll aussieht, was ich bis jetzt so gesehen habe (:

  3. Hi! Just came across your lovely blog!
    I'm very very into blushes lately too, and my latest blush acquisition is GA Sheer Blush #2 Pink as well! Loving it to death, haha...

    It looks really pretty and natural on you!
