Insta-summer: this blush! The fresh-faced makeup artist Gucci Westman smudged it at the tops of my cheeks and across my bottom lip as we sat, shivering, bundled in coats at a fancy downtown hotel. It was the dead of winter; the hotel’s heating system had gone into a dramatic reversal wherein the snowstorm swirling outside was somehow being brought in. We were both laughing, but she held the mirror in front of me, insisting, “Look!” There is just no denying the summeriness and ease of this fat little stick: It is creamy and sheer and brilliant pink—one swipe wakes up your entire face, even if you’re sitting in a luxury icebox.
