This photos tell most of the story. Kjaer Weis cream blush in Abundance is a gorgeous mauve-taupe. You don't come across a color like this very often, yet it looks incredibly natural and flattering, especially when the focal point of your makeup look are eyes and/or lips, but you don't want your cheeks to look unfinished. It's a very sophisticated and modern color, but will also appeal to those who miss the brown craze of the early 90s. But it's not brown: there's just enough mauve there to perk up the skin and make you look healthy. I've also mixed Abundance with other colors to tone them down as needed, and I suspect that those of you with very pale skin would find it perfect for a sunkissed look.
The formula of Kjaer Weis blushes is certified organic. It's not vegan because of the use of beeswax, but it is gluten-free. The texture is very soft and smooth, the finish is satin, and it holds in place all day without smearing or moving, though because of the various natural oils in the formula I don't know how tenacious it would be on people with oily skin.
Bottom Line: my newest love.
Kjaer Weis cream blush can be purchased in the sleek refillable compact you see above ($54) or as a refill ($30) that you can place in any empty magnetic palette. Available from kjaerweis.com and Osswald in NYC (online, in store, and also by phone 212-625-3111, if you need assistance with picking colors).
