The what? Iâ€™m singing praises for one of Monaveâ€™s matte blushes, Damask. Well, to be honest, I am not at all that fond of matte blushes or just about anything matte. To me, matte = flat.
One of my co-workers and close friend got Damask (well, you all know you influenced her into trying out mineral makeup *wink* ) and I got green with envy. Unlike its online swatch, Damask looked like a safe color of pink. Monave describes it as: â€â€¦ a neutral blush, and just a touch adds a blush of color to the cheeks.â€ This color would work for those with light to medium skin tones. Never mind that it was matte, when my friend used it I knew I had to get it for myself.
Lo and behold, Damask looked so pretty and natural. The â€œflat matteâ€ effect didnâ€™t last soon as it blended with my oilies. I looked glowing, and in love. This could be my everyday blush, or on days when Iâ€™m too lazy to put much makeup and still want to look my natural best.

Mineral Makeup Girl’s Note : I agree, Vix! Damask doesn’t look like anythng on the site. It’s a pale pink-peach ( almost pastellish ), that is like Adobe Sunset. Adobe Sunset’s brown that turns reddish on the chees, and this one is a pale peach that turns pinkish on the cheeks! ( that goes even deeper! Haha )
