Lex from Sobe Botanicals sent me a sneak peek with samples of her new blushes! You’ve seen me sporting Icing on the Cake, my favorite nude blush. I CANNOT get over how much I love this blush and I will be buying a full size soon. I feel like it looks amazing on me. Anyway, on to the pretty colors! I was really happy that I came up with fairly accurate color descriptions for these after looking at them under the daybulb. I think my eye for color is improving. I didn’t get to see the official color descriptions until after I came up with mine.
My color descriptions:
Icing on the cake – delicate pink with vanilla shimmer
Enchanted – blue-based pink with blue shimmer
Nouveau – nude pink with gold shimmer
Shebang! – light pink with purple shimmer
Fortune – soft light gold with pink shimmer
Two to Tango – orange coral with red shimmer
Dolled Up – nude pink with blue shimmer
Charming – apricot with gold shimmer
Metamorphosis – orange with green and gold shimmer
The official color descriptions:
Icing on the Cake-Light soft beige/Taupe w/ blue, pink, gold, copper & violet shimmer
Enchanted-Fuchsia w/ blue shimmer
Nouveaux-purple w/ gold shimmer
Shebang!-Hot pink w/ purple shimmer
Fortune-Light soft gold w/ gold & copper shimmer
Two to Tango-Coral w/ red shimmer
Charming-medium apricot pink w/ gold & bronze shimmer
Dolled up-pink w/ blue, purple & red shimmer
Metamorphosis-Warm Coral w/ teal shimmer
As you can tell, Icing on the Cake is my favorite, but I also like Enchanted, Fortune and Charming. It seems like the colors have a matte base and they’re somehow blended with a bit of shimmer, but I don’t feel like the shimmer is overkill. The colors are delicate to me.
$7.99 for 10 grams
Mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxides, tin oxide. Except for Enchanted & Shebang! & Two to Tango all have FD&C color and cannot be used on the eyes.
They are Vegan.
I love these blushes. I think they’re reasonably priced, $7.99 for 10 grams (and I think you can also do $11 for a 30 gram refill bag) will last you a long time! I think the colors are all very pretty and flattering. They’re sheer so you can build up the brightness with greater control. The shimmer is very fine and flattering.
Would I purchase?
Yes! I’m waiting for Icing on the Cake to go live so I can buy it How about you? Have you tried Sobe Botanicals? What do you think of these blushes?
