Sometimes I contemplate a new blush purchase for weeks, and other times I know from the moment the shade is released that I will be adding the shade to my collection. Initial posts about the All About Orange collection and Honey Jasmine had me sitting up in my desk chair, and as soon as it popped up online (Australia, why so delayed?) I plugged my card details in and grinned like a Cheshire Cat.
I truly regret not purchasing Fresh Honey when it came out with the Naturally collection, and I’ve sort of viewed Honey Jasmine as my consolation prize. It does require a little bit of effort to blend in nicely, but the way it looks against my pale complexion more than makes up for that flaw.
Described by Temptalia as “medium orange with subtle warm, yellow undertones and a barely-there satin sheen”, Honey Jasmine is darker and more red-toned than something like Chanel Frivole (which I also own and love) I can see this working on skin tones across the board as it is pigmented and seems to stand out on Christine’s cheeks, but as always it is all about what you feel comfortable wearing. I quite like wearing orange tones on my cheeks, so I am really pleased to have this in my collection.
