Have I told you that blushes are my current addiction? It seems, I can not get enough of these colored powders that instantly infuse my face with life! Don’t you just feel naked and dull without coloring your cheeks? Don’t know about you, but I do!
As much as I love color on my cheeks, I prefer natural looking shades that give me a sheer flush. Therefore, I prefer blushes with a sheerer pigmentation, as I simply can not manage high-pigmented-blush-application without ending up with clown cheeks.
This leads to my latest blush acquisition, which I’m going to review today! It’s the Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush #2 Pink, which is my very first blush from Armani. Yay!

Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush #2 Pink on my cheeks!
| Packaging |
Armani’s Sheer Blush comes in a matte black plastic compact that feels very sturdy. The design is kept very clean and that’s what gives it a classic and chic look. It has a full compact mirror inside, which is great for touch-ups on the go. It does not provide a small brush though, but since I prefer my regular blush brushes anyways, I’m not particularly sad about that.
| Shade |
#2 Pink is a light neutral pink with a hint of peach to it. There is no visible shimmer to it, but if you look very close and swatch it on your skin, you will see a very fine translucent sheen.
At first sight, it reminded me of NARS Blush ~ Sex Appeal, but when I compared closer, I noticed a difference in color and especially in how they finish. This neutral pink works beautifully on fair to medium skintones for a super natural and cute flush.
| Texture and Color Payoff |
Extremely silky and smooth! It’s that silky and smooth that it almost doesn’t feel like powder! Although the powder is so fine and sheer, the color payoff is definitely there. The sheerness of the texture allows you to layer on without overdoing.
| Finish |
I’m especially in love with the finish, which is nearly too amazing to describe in words! Sheer Blush #2 Pink instantly gives my complexion a glowy and luminous sheen! I feel this powder just melts into my skin. Literally! Seriously, the luminous sheen is to die for!
| Availability and Price |
Giorgio Armani is available internationally at Armani counters and department stores. Retail price is 43,00 USD / 41,95 €.
| Verdict |
How come, a beauty addict like me, has not picked this blush up much earlier? It’s not that I have not noticed all the hype about it! I think, it’s because the Giorgio Armani Sheer Blushes look very boring in the pan! Do you agree? Yes, that was the reason for sure!
Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush is probably one of the most silky powder blushes with the most beautiful finish that I have ever experienced. If you have problems with pigmented blushes like me, and love to end up with a beautiful luminous sheen, you better pick it up soon!
A drop of bitterness would be the heavy price tag, but I guess that’s the price for a high quality product?
Texture and Color Payoff: 5/5
