Watercolour™ liquid blush - FAQs
New to Watercolour™ liquid blush? Here you'll find everything you need to know about the product, how to apply it, and which shade is right for you.
Watercolour™ liquid blush is simply a blush with a liquid formula. Depending on the colour, the product can be applied to different parts of the cheek to create your look, just like powder and cream blushers. Pink shades may go on the apple of the cheek to create a flush, a highlighter can go on the top of the cheekbone to highlight, while a contour shade can sit under the cheekbone to define it.
We're glad you asked! The award-winning formula is light-weight so you can build up colour depending on the look you want to create, without weighing the skin down. It goes on just like water, and lets your skin shine through for a natural look. The silicone formula makes it water-resistant and rub-proof, meaning the colour will stay put and last all day, so there's no need to keep reapplying it. Don't worry though, they're super blendable upon application, so you can apply it to the right part of the cheeks without leaving heavy lines, giving a really natural look. You only need to use a tiny amount to give a wash of colour to the cheeks, so a bottle will last you ages!
Yes! The silicone based, oil-free formulation doesn't clog pores and suits every skin type. Vitamin E and Jojoba nourish the skin, so your skin won't dry out and looks healthier, giving a healthy looking sheen. You'll look youthful and radiant!
Unlike a powder blush, Watercolour™ liquid blush is water-resistant and rub-proof, meaning once applied it will last all day, so there's no need to reapply. One fewer product for you to carry around in your makeup bag! Powder blushes can also settle into pores, fine lines and wrinkles, making it obvious you're wearing a blush. Watercolour™ liquid blush goes on like a second skin, giving a pretty, natural look that is well suited for older skins.
A liquid blush is much closer to a cream blush than a powder blush. However, some cream blushers have a much heavier formulation, which can weigh down the skin. Watercolour™ liquid blush is lightweight, so you can build up colour to suit your look.
You can also mix shades much more easily than with a powder or cream blush to create your bespoke look. Just mix a couple of drops on the back of your hand until you've got the shade you want, and away you go!
The special ingredients in your Watercolour™ liquid blush may separate in the bottle, but don't worry, just shake the bottle to mix evenly before each use. Unscrew the cap then squeeze out one tiny drop of Watercolour™ liquid blush on the back of your hand. Using the Waterbrush or your fingers, pick up a first drop of colour, apply to cheeks and blend. Using the remaining product, do the same thing on the other cheek. To deepen the colour on your cheeks, re-apply a drop of colour to each cheek and blend. Remember to always replace the screw cap securely.

Certainly! Just like a powder or cream blush, you would typically apply Watercolour™ liquid blush after applying your base (a primer to even out pores and fine lines, followed by a foundation and concealer to even your skin tone). It's best to apply it before applying any powder product, as the liquid formula does not layer well on top of powders, but it is fine to use underneath a powder. We therefore don't recommend it for use over a powder foundation or mineral makeup.
Why not try our specially designed Waterbrush for applying Watercolour™ liquid blush. The shape of the brush makes it easy to apply the product to the right part of the cheeks and cheekbones. It's not essential though, and Watercolour™ liquid blush can just as easily be applied with fingers for touch-ups on the go or when you don’t want to bog down your makeup bag with another brush!
