Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée - Pink Escape

I've been really curious about Josie Maran's Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelées, and I have been using the shade Pink Escape ($29 CAD/0.18 oz) since it came in Sephora's Glitz & Glam kit! These blushes are infused with coconut water and have a very unique, gelée formula.

"What it is:
An innovative coconut water-infused cheek gelée with up to 14 hours of color and hydration.

What it does:
This buildable, blendable blush hybrid provides the natural look of a cream blush with the long-lasting hydrating color of a gel stain. Infused with 50 percent-pure coconut water, it instantly hydrates while nourishing with the powerful benefits of vitamin E-rich argan oil. Like a refreshing sip of coconut water for your skin, this moisture-packed blush instantly drenches cheeks in a cool veil of color. " - Sephora

Josie Maran's Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelées come packaged in little glass pots with a colour cordinating plastic lid. The packaging really reminds me of Korres' Lip Butters! The product itself is a gelée formula, which I've never used before. I use Real Techniques' Stippling Brush to apply this blush, as it picks up just the right amount of product. However, you can also use your fingers to apply this blush. Pink Escape is a beautiful pink shade with slightly red undertones. The colour of this blush is very buildable, and I usually use two coats for a nice flush to my cheeks. What I love most about this blush is the healthy, dewy finish. Don't worry, this blush doesn't make you look oily at all, but it definitely isn't matte. This formula from Josie Maran creates a long-wearing stain on your cheeks, and the colour stays on all day long. This blush lasts for at least 12 hours on my cheeks, which I find incredibly impressive!

I've been really impressed by this blush - I love the wear time, the colour is beautiful, and I love the dewy finish. Have you tried any of Josie Maran's Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelées? I'm really wanting to try out the shades Berry Bliss, Honeymoon Honey, & Coral Oasis! What shades are your favourites?
