Charlotte’s Cheek to Chic Blusher in Love is the Drug adds a youthful glow of cool-toned shimmering pink to your complexion.

    To apply: SWISH your brush around the outer shade and tap off any excess product. Blend the brush up the cheek, starting at the apples towards the top of your cheekbones. Then POP your brush directly into the middle shade, using the tip of your brush tap off the excess again, and apply just to the apples of your cheeks to make them pop and glow! Blend both shades together for a seamless flush of color.
