Lancôme 'Blush Subtil' in Rose Fresque: Review & Swatch!

Today's featured product is the Lancôme 'Blush Subtle' Delicate Oil-Free Powder Blush in Rose Fresque. When I ordered my Lancôme 'Maison Lancôme' blush (click for review!) a couple of months ago, I ended up getting a free goodie bag with it, one of the items being this blush. This is a smaller version than the regular size, but this product is available in a larger packaging at Lancôme counters!


Rose Fresque can be described exactly as the name implies: a beautiful rose pink. I like that it isn't too bright and can be used for more of a romantic look on the cheeks. I also like that it is matte!


The pigmentation on this blush was good. It isn't the most pigmented blush I've used, but I certainly didn't have any trouble building color with it. Here's a swatch!


And last, but not least, the packaging is all black with a rose design on the front. Very fitting, considering the name of this shade!


The full-size product retails for $29.50 and is available wherever Lancôme products are sold!

Would you wear it?

  1. This blush looks gorgeous.

    On a side note, it is true that "rose" in French is the name of a flower (as in English), but it also means "pink" (in French, it means both words, so a "pink rose" will translate into une "rose rose". Weird, I know). So here, Rose Fresque will translate into Pink Fresco.
    And as for the rose design on the packaging, it is there simply because this flower is Lancôme's emblem ;)

  11. Oh I got one of those sample sized blushes from Lancome once. It was called Evening Affair, and I had a bit of trouble with pigmentation in mine. Rose Fresque is such a pretty colour.

  13. I'm a brunette with an olive complexion in the summer, and a medium complexion in the winter. This shade looks great on me in the winter when I'm lighter, but I didn't have it in the summer to try it, so I'm not sure yet...
