Surratt Grisaille

Surratt Grisaille Review and Swatches

Contouring has (thankfully) reined itself in for A/W. Ok, we're all still at it, but at least we're moving away from stripes down the cheekbones, and towards a more natural, gently sculpted finish. Thank goodness for that. 

I've been trying to get my mitts on Surratt's elusive Artistique Blush in Grisaille for about five months, since the oracle that is Sali Hughes endorsed its beautiful sculpting qualities. It's an elusive little critter - I'd suggest getting yourself on to Cult Beauty's waiting list so that, if it ever comes back in to stock, you can snap it up pronto.

Grisaille is a very unappealing, greyish brown shade - not dissimilar to Illamasqua's Hollow, but slightly warmer, and in powder form. Oh, and the blush itself is pretty weeny. Travel friendly in size, sure, but bang-to-buck ratio is low. This is, without doubt, a luxury.

That, however, is where any negatives end. This is the most beautiful, gentle sculpting taupe shade. Eyes, cheeks, jawline, whatever - this is your contouring friend. It's hard to overdo. The formula is divine - butter soft, smooth, and silky. There is absolutely no kick-up of powder in the pan, and Grisaille blends like a dream over foundation, with powders, or on bare skin. On my NC30ish skintone, this gives a subtle hint of contour - on a fair skin this will be sublime.
