The Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blushers £15.50 15ml have been something I've wanted to try for frigging ages. I've always been intrigued by their not so run-of-the-mill formula and have heard countless raves coming from bloggers and magazines. I ended up picking Cherub, a cool toned matte baby pink. 

First thing to mention is that this shade is incredibly pigmented - the swatch is literally a dab of the product - and a little goes a long way. The consistency is quite runny, so it can take a little getting used to, but to make things a lot easier I used a small stippling brush to apply rather than my finger tips. Daniel Sandler also make a Watercolour Brush specifically designed for this product which I'd be intrigued to try! Although it's runny it has a kind of silicone-y texture to it which, for me, made it super easy to blend - you don't get those tell-tale dots that I always end up with when using something like Benefit Benetint. Lasting power is great on the drier area of my cheeks but slightly less great on the oiler parts - but even so it fades evenly instead of looking patchy and weird.

I really like this product and can see it becoming an every day staple, even if it's not as straightforward to apply as your standard powder blushes. My only niggles are the dispenser (it would be great if it was slightly narrower) and the 6M lifespan on the side of the bottle. There's not way myself, or anyone for that matter, could get through this bottle in six months because it's just so pigmented! So I'm hoping it's still usable when it gets to that point! Have you ever tried the Watercolour Fluid BlushersAre there any other Daniel Sandler products you'd recommend?
