When it comes to creating a beautiful palette of makeup shades, acclaimed Dutch makeup artist, Ellis Faas, certainly knows her business.  The colors in Ellis Faas Cosmetics are based on ones the body naturally produces in order to best compliment our skin.  A prime example is Skin Blush S304 that I received to review.

Just like her other cosmetics in this prestige line, this blush is manufactured in another silver bullet-like pen.  The first version of this blush had a sponge applicator, which later was replaced with a synthetic brush tip for fewer risks of clogging. 
At first glance, the color of S304 looks like a red-plum shade when it flows to the brush tip.  However, I was surprised that once I dabbed a bit of the color onto my cheek and blended it into my skin, the shade transformed itself.  Before my eyes, I discovered the color gained a bit of bronze to subdue most of the red-plum until it became more of a russet-bronze.

Although it was different from what I had expected, this russet-bronze had warmth and vitality.  At the same time, S304 gave my skin a healthy boost of sunny color and beneficial skin assistance from essential oils, vitamins, and rose water.  This is not some flat blush that just sits on your cheeks.  The look is luminous, casting a delicate gleam to bring out your bone structure.
Be careful on how much of the color you dispense.  This is a very pigmented blush where just a small amount will suffice. 
Ellis Faas Skin Blush S304 is a trooper whether you use prime first or not.  This product can last for hours without going anywhere! 
Despite the color being a tad too dark for my light skin, I thought this was a beautiful way to blush especially for those with medium to dark complexions. Ellis Faas Skin Blush S304 retails for $32.  Do check this product out.
