Ultima II Creamy Powder Blush: Bronze Bordeaux

This blush is aptly named because it's a bronze-red wine color.  Who knew those two things could be combined and still look nice?

This is another of my unearthed treasures of the 80's. It can be used by a wide range of skin tones, though the fair-skinned need to use a very light hand.

Very lightly swatched in full shade. See how nice it looks on my pale skin? Not scary at all!

In full sun it has a very slight sheen.

Heavily swatched.  The wine color really comes out in full shade.

In direct sun the bronze is more evident.  I think this would look really good on someone with darken skin, but pale people like me don't have to skip it - we just have to be delicate in our application method.

I was wondering when we'd see some Ultima II! i used to sell a lot of this stuff at The Cosmetic Center! It's so cool to see it here. Your blog is a blast!

Thank you! It started as a school project but I'm really enjoying the process and plan on continuing once the class is over.

I have several Ultima II items to blog, as well as some others you never see today such as Charles of the Ritz. Ah, memories!
