      Not a fan of coral blushes, but I agree that the Lancome one has been on my wanted list since Christine first reviewed it!

  2. Corals are awesome for the summer! I used Mac Her Blooming Cheek yesterday and the pink did not have the same effect as it did back in winter, so methinks it’s time to break out the corals! Can’t wait to start using Coralista and co. again!

    I’ve got that LeMetier de Beaute split pan and love it!

  4. Love a good coral blush! Definitely with Spring here now :)

    No Nars?

    I, too, am not a fan of coral blushes but my favorite all time coral blush is La Femme Blush in Golden Sunset is a deep red-coral color with a heavenly golden micro-shimmery frosty finsih. (Fros

    Hi Christine, CMIIW, in this post » http://www.temptalia.com/estee-lauder-radiant-peach-blush-review-photos-swatches you’ve said that:
    Lancome Mandarin Sky = Estee Lauder Radiant Peach = Rock & Republic Call Me,
    and then in this post » http://www.temptalia.com/nyx-menage-a-trois-hd-grinding-blush-review-photos-swatches you’ve said that:
    NYX Menage a Trois = Lancome Mandarin Sky.

    Sooooooo…..
    Is that means NYX Menage Trois, Lancome Mandarin Sky & Estee Lauder Radiant = Rock & Republic Call Me?
    Like similar-“SIMILAR”? An exact dupe???
    If it’s true than hail to the Lord! I’m obsess with R&R Call Me (I don’t know why, but MAC Springsheen & NARS Orgasm are nothing like R&R Call Me on my cheeks).

    Also, can you tell me which blush that also an exact dupe to R&R Call Me? How about Clinique Precious Posy? I’ve tried to search on your Dupe List, but seems like R&R Call Me only related to NARS Orgasm.

    I’m sorry, I know that I’m asking too many question in one comment… Thanks in advance, though! I’m addicted to your blog!! :D

    • No, just similar, not an exact dupe. The NYX blush has a stronger orange tone than all of them but comes closest to Mandarin Sky, which has a similar sheen. I don’t know have an exact dupe for Call Me – don’t have Precious Posy, sorry!! :(

    Hi Christine! I want to buy either the Estee Lauder or Lancome blush but I don’t know which one to get? What is your favorite of the two? Can you or anyone please help me? What are the differences? Which one has better staying power? For reference I’m a NC25 & beige ivory in Laura Mercier silk creme. I appreciate your time :)

    • Honestly, they’re both quite similar! I suppose Estee Lauder slightly edges it out for being nicer in texture but it’s nearly imperceptible. They both last all day on me!

    Even I love love coral blushes with gold shimmer. But, I don’t own a single one :(.. Which one of these is your favorite Christine, in terms of quality and pigmentation. I’ll get that one.

    I actually quite dislike coral blushes, but WOW Christine, the ones you chose are beautiful! You’ve pretty much convinced me to see these in person! Especially Echo!

    Where could I get laFemme&Korres online to europe? Never heard of La Metier..! I usually wear pinks,since I`m cool-toned.Yesterday got Chanel tweed pink,Beautiful:).I like Sensai CH05 SOHI,it has lighter&darker colour,to me its more coral than peach&it goes on so smooth..

    • I’m not sure if Korres is sold online to Europe but know that is a brand that originated in Greece so I believe they have distributors in Europe.

    Estee one, si! LOOOVVVEEE peachy coral <3

    Lancome one looks fabulous on you. No, EVERY shade here looks nice on you!

    For me, heavy-handed girl, I prefer lighter shade… Do you remember MAC Shell Pearl LE? I make it looks coral without having light skin tone (NC25)!

    So bold colors are no-go for me.

    Chanel In Love! Gorgeous,bright! Not sure its exact coral,apricot..or available anymore.

    I’ll have to check some of these out! I love the elf candid coral blush but i’m getting a little bored with it. I really like how it didn’t have a lot of shimmer, but it gave my cheeks a glow.
