|This is #034 Gracilis For Love Of Roses Blush in its cool mauve-rose beauty.|
This line of powder blushes consists of five becoming shades that include #036 Orpheline, #033 Delicata, #034 Gracilis and #038 Habanera that I was sent along with a pale coral in Starlina.
Unlike some powder blushes, the For Love of Roses formula graces cheeks with more sheer color that melds into skin like it surfaced from within the complexion instead of laying on top of the skin like a colored powder. The glow is subtle to make cheeks bloom with genuine loveliness that does wear well for hours without fading.

As to shades themselves, Orpheline is a warm strawberry color that can instantly whip health into cheeks with the freshness it can add.
|This is Orpheline.|
Delicata is a very gentle warm beige-nude color with just traces of pink and peach that seems to dance across the cheeks with grace. Besides using as a blush, Delicata is wonderful as an understated bronzer over some traditional bronzers.
|Here is Delicata.|
Habanera is another warm shade with red-brown tones ripened with sunny hues and rose to give it life.
|This one is Habanera.|
Gracilis is more neutral to a cool shade that makes brilliant use of mauve and rose.
