Colour: Nectar

Find Your Perfect Shade

As quick and easy-to-apply as a cream blush, but better because Watercolour Gel Cheek Colour stays put all day. Less pigmented than our Watercolour Liquid Cheek Colour, these light-as-a-feather pretty gels are sheer and leave a natural, long-lasting finish.

Available in four shades:

Nectar - a delicate peach, that's great for fairer skins and particularly those with high-colour, as the peach neutralises any redness in the cheeks.

Petal - a coral, peach-pink that looks lovely on most skin tones.

Mango - a vibrant tangerine that looks fabulous on darker skin tones.

Berry - a bitten-lip, berry shade that looks fabulous on most skin tones.

The ultra-lightweight formula blends effortlessly onto cheeks, leaving a seamless wash of colour that feels like a second skin, instantly lifting your complexion with a healthy flush of stay-all-day colour.

The satin texture and sheer colour combined with micro-fine sheen particles gently catch the light for a completely natural lit-from-within glow. With buildable coverage, there’s no limit to the number of looks you can create, from a delicate whisper of blush to an intense pop of colour on cheeks.

This sweat and water-resistant, silicone formula quickly dries to a non-sticky, natural finish. Enriched with Vitamin E to soothe and protect, and Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, the lightweight formula stretches with the skin and won’t weigh it down. This is a unique gel blush that’s comfortable to wear and won’t leave cheeks feeling taut.

Quick and easy to apply with your fingers, and as lovely on lips as it is on cheeks, we guarantee you’ll want to take this little tube of colour everywhere with you.

Suitable for all skins but especially good for oily skin types. Great for gym go-ers. Superb performance in hot countries & humidity. No makeup tool needed to apply.

Colour description disappointing

Absolutely fell in love after my first purchase of Rose Gold liquid illuminator. Beautiful colour, texture, so easy to apply and lasts really well. However, I do tend to go for more pinky shades and as the Rose Gold is slightly peachy,I did the quiz to see what was recommended and loved the look of Petal that came up as a pink option. Ordered and eagerly awaited delivery only to find that Petal is in fact peach. It's a beautiful shade of peach, granted and the gel is lovely but it is most definitely not pink! No doubt I will love this one too but do feel slightly duped with the colour description.

Hi Jo, we're really sorry to hear you're disappointed with the colour description - you are correct that Petal is more of a corally peach/pink, rather than a true pink. I have passed your comments onto the team, and we will look to amend our website to make this clear. Thanks for your feedback, it really helps us improve.

Love - great product

I love Daniel Sandler water color blushes. They're all amazing colors and a little goes a long way. The product doesn't irritate my skin and stays on all day. I love mixing the colors to create my own custom shade.

Thank you so much Beth! x

An everyday staple

Used for: 3 weeks (daily)
Shade: Nectar
Application: Mainly fingers but have used with sponge and brush.
Skin tone: Peachy (neutrals are the best I can find)

Why I went for this type of product?

I have admired the watercolour products for quite a while but I'm quite minamilist with my make up collection and wanted to work through my existing blushes.

However...all my blushes are powder. And I was keen to remove the need to utilise brushes (it's a pain to wash them when I can just use my fingers for most things).

Why the gel and not the liquid?

I did the quiz and it recommended this particular product. I also felt that the watercolour blushes might require me to use brushes to blend into the skin.

Why the colour?

Again, the quiz! But I'm glad I did it as it picked a colour I would never typically use. I'm typically drawn to cool tones, being so pale any sort of orange tone/warmth feels over the top and unnatural.

But this surprised me, it melded well with my peachy tones and almost looks like I've caught the sun. I've stopped bothering with bronzer (it just never seems to fit my face) and I think this blush gives me the dimension I need to sculpt my face.


Admittedly, I can't give too much detail on this. I wear this for 3-4 hours on random errands and meals but not for long days.

I do feel it stays on my face, but the 'definition' it adds gets a bit lost when my more pinky tones start to work though my foundation.

My favourite combo?

I love this blush with a cool toned brown eye and a nude lip. It looks very clean and almost red carpet like. I sometimes dabbed it on my lips but I'd use sparingly!

Thank you so much Brock for such a detailed review - it really helps our customers make a decision! We're so pleased to hear our shade quiz helped you. Thanks for supporting our brand xx

Formula is swell

I love the gel formula. Dense, pigmented, but very blendable. My only gripe is that Petal is displayed as a coral pink, but is actually a true peach. I'll attach a picture with some swatch comparisons.

It's a bummer about the lack of pink shades- as someone with a warm, fair, and olive complexion, any orange tones in a blush look garish on me. Hope to see a cool or neutral medium pink out in the formula at s6ome point!
