Alamar Cosmetics: Colorete Blush Trio Fair/Light Review and Swatches

Alamar Cosmetics: Colorete Blush Trio Fair/Light Review

Alamar Cosmetics is a smaller Indie brand founded by Gabriela Trujillo, you may have seen her on the Boxy Charm social media before she left to pursue Alamar Cosmetics. She is also a friend of Kathleen Lights and worked as a makeup artist for her. Before living in Miami, Gabby lived in a housing project in Cuba called Alamar. Alamar actually means "stay close to the sea" which to Gabby meant staying closing to your culture. It's clear that her culture shines through in her brand. The brand launched in 2018 and currently has a range of eye shadow palettes, blush palettes, lip gloss and blush trios. This blush trio was in a recent Boxycharm and I was really excited to try the brand.


The Colorete blush trio is available in fair/light, medium/tan and dark/rich. The shade range is great since many face palettes will work only for some skin tones. I really enjoy face palettes and the fair/light works great for my fair skin, I can get full use from this palette. It has three shades; Castaway is a creamsicle orange, Paraiso is a beige neutral pink, and Scorcher is a pinky peachy gold shade. This palette claims to give you a " sun kissed, radiant, and flushed look a hot day at the beach would give you." I have to say I really like the orangey shades more than I expected. I knew Paraiso would be a shade I loved, but the others surprised me by how much I enjoy them. 

The formula is great; it's pigmented but just the right amount for a blush. It blends beautifully and lasts all day. It has really made me want to try more from the brand. As a brand, Alamar is releasing different products that we're not seeing in mainstream brands. The eyeshadows are not your typical warm shades, there's really a uniqueness to the shade selection.
