bareMinerals Swoon Blush
bareMinerals Swoon Blush

bareMinerals Swoon Blush ($19.00 for 0.03 oz.) is described as a “petal pink satin.” It’s a light-medium, pink-coral with a matte finish. Fyrinnae Nordic Angel (P, $6.50) is warmer, slightly more orange. MAC Lured to Love (LE, $25.00) is lighter.MAC Passion for Colour (LE, $21.00) is a touch warmer. Edward Bess Secret Affair (P, $43.00) is darker. MAC Supercontinental (LE, $21.00) is pinker, less matte. Burberry Blossom (P, $42.00) is several shades darker. See comparison swatches.

The texture was soft, silky, and very finely-milled. When applied to the skin, it blends beautifully–no harsh edges, no powderiness, just soft color. It had good color payoff, though it is a more buildable blush than it is incredibly intense from the get-go. I wore it on a couple of days ago, and it wore well for almost eight hours–just slight fading but no patchiness. This shade is part of the spring True Romantic collection, and it is new and limited edition.

    I was hoping for a good review- yes! I feel like you can just see how softly it blends! i’ve really been wanting one try one of these loose powder blushes, and I also love the rose gold packaging!

  2. Love it! It looks great on you. Such a pretty color.

    So gorgeous! I was wondering, what’s your favorite brush to apply loose blush? Thanks!

  4. Ohhh I could definitely swoon over this one, what a pretty color!

  5. Wow, that looks so pretty on you! I!’my glad it’s buildable though – if it went straight on like it looks in the swatch, little old vampirically pale me would be in trouble! :-)

  9. It’s beautiful, but that is an incredibly tiny amount of product for $19! That’s smaller than the average eyeshadow!

    Wow it looks super pretty on you! What brush/techniques would you suggest using with loose powder blushes?

    • Thanks, Stella!

      I use a regular blush brush (same as I would for pressed), but if it’s really pigmented I might use a stippling brush (MAC 131 or 188). The big tip would be to get a little on the brush, swirl in the cap, then apply!

  11. This one looks incredibly gorgeous on you, Christine! :)

  12. This looks so good on you, Christine! If you could only get either this or the Fyrinnae Nordic Angel, what would you go for?

  13. Wow absolutely beautiful color in the box and on the skin alike <3

  14. A very pretty shade – i like the Heartbreaker Lipgloss too

  15. Oh my! I have never been one for loose powder blush, but this is such a beautiful shade! I bet I would get a lot of use from this color!

    This color looks wonderful on you! I love the consistency of it. Do you know how this compares to MAC’s Instant Chic blush?
