Frankly Scarlet transports me to the old English zone.. To the 'London bridge is falling down' poem. :D
I feel its a beautiful 'pick me up' blush, in more ways than one. You know when I bought this, (I posted it here ) and mentioned how my mommy bought me this to lift my spirits! I was in a pathetic mood!
Price Rs 1050
MAC describes it as a vivid rose-red. I agree. Frankly Scarlet is a matte blush. Very scary in the pan.. But turns into a beautiful blush that lights up once face. I think I have a thing for red cheeks! I remember I was overjoyed when I got this. I have a cream red blush from MaxFactor (read about it here) which doesn't stand a chance in front of this! But I feel that looks beautiful on darker skin.
|My finger looks like a sausage! Gahhh!|
Adds a beautiful pop of colour to my face on days when I'm particularly pale. I have very flushed cheeks normally, so this doesn't look over the top on me, but I still I ensure I put it on with a very light hand.
This lasts for around 4 hours on my face, which I think is fab, cause no blush lasts on me! Ever!!
I feel this blush suits a wide range of skintones. For reference, I'm a NC 40-42 (I sway:P) and this is how it looks on me- ONLY Frankly Scarlet. No other makeup.

I was asked to review this blush for as long as I remember. This is for you, Ankita! I am sorry for doing it so late. I knew I had to be back with this since you practically dragged me out of hibernation. :) And Zeeba, for you too!:P
Oh and I'm doing this after so long.. I don't know if I missed anything.. remind me if I did! :P Thanks! I love you all.. :)
