I e-mailed Mai Couture and asked for some samples of their blush papiers, and was pleased to get a speedy reply, asking more about my skin tone and eye color, and for my address to send them to. Pretty fantastic customer service, if I do say so! Definitely Above Average!
The envelope came within a few days, and here is what I received:
|Mai Couture blush papiers in Prettyful and Sunset Blvd|
To apply the blush papiers, you simply fold the sheet in half, and rub the paper onto your cheeks. And presto! You are wearing blush! This is a great idea for anyone on the go, and don't want to carry a large blush brush or use fingers. The packets are very slim, so they fit in a pocket or purse very easily.
Sunset Blvd. is a pretty, shimmery salmon color, and perfectly suitable for my skin tone for day wear.
Prettyful is a lovely shimmery pink shade, and great for a night out, especially for my very fair skin tone.
The price on these is very reasonable, in my opinion, for a high end product: a booklet of 50 sheets (50 applications) is $17.50. The booklets include hits and tips for wear on the inside back cover, which I think is a great idea.
Mai Couture also carries highlighters, bronzers, blotters and foundations; all in papier form, as well as lip gloss. Their products are available online, and at select retailers, although none are near me. Boo.
I love how great their customer service department was, they replied to me very fast, and the samples arrived before I began to look for them, which is a really good sign, in my opinion. If you think papiers will make your makeup routine easier or better, go on over HERE and check them out!
I might order more in the future, but I just bought Physician's Formula Happy blush in Rose, and I really like it, so until I get bored with that, I'm good with blushes.
