bareMinerals Remix: The Natural High

bareMinerals The Natural High Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “golden petal peach.” It’s a peachy-gold shimmered rosy pink; a little coral-pink but still more pink than coral even on my warmer skin tone. It’s a shade a lot of us have in our stash, in some variation, as many, many brands make this shade–most notably NARS Orgasm. NARS Deep Throat is darker, pinker. MAC Fleet Fast is redder, less shimmery. Tarte Glisten is comparable.

It’s soft to the touch (softer, denser than other Ready blush shades I’ve tried), finely-milled, and nicely pigmented. It’s buildable, blendable, and wore for a full eight hours (exactly as long as bareMinerals’ lists the wear as). The shimmer-sheen finish doesn’t accentuate pores or imperfections in the skin texture, so it ends up being a flattering sheen and glow on the cheeks, along with the rosy flush.  If you already have other peachy-shimmered corals, it’s not a must-have, but the formula worked well and the payoff was true-to-pan, so if you don’t have it, this is a good candidate for consideration.

    I just bought it yesterday along with the Next Big Thing eyeshadow quad. I am really tempted to get the Wild Thing too, I am just not sure if the colors with suit my blonde hair and blue eyes…

    If I have nars orgasm and deep throat, do I need this?

    beautiful! I’ve been really impressed with this brand lately! I love my ready luminizer.

    Beautiful color! I love Bare minerals!

    MUST. BUY. THIS.

    Does anything further really need to be said!?! :)

    the product itself sounds wonderful – quality, wear, etc. – but it’s not a shade I’d reach for much at all (too peachy warm and I’ve got about 3 or 4 of those shades already, languishing in my makeup collection because it’s just not my shade).

  7. Malina

    Does it look like Orgasm?

  8. kolorkoded

    Beautiful color but since Nars Orgasm didn’t real show up on my warmer skin tone I doubt this will either :(

  9. Karlie

    I’m so excited for this blush! I work at BE and have been wearing Coralista for a while *shush, don’t tell anyone!* Now I can finally go back to being an honest woman. :)

    way better than nars orgasm!

    I definetly don’t need it but it sure is pretty.

  12. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Courtney Court

    Is it anything like Chanel In Love?

  13. Liz

    Orgasm didn’t really show up on me. I don’t wear MAC, but I estimate my color match to be NC43. Do you think this would work for me?

    This blush looks georgous, it is right up my alley

  15. EmJay

    Comparing the swatches of this to Christine’s review of Orgasm, this seems to look a little better if the swatches of Orgasm are still relevant to the formula still used by Nars. I’d rather have this over Nars.

    It’s like Nars Orgasm but 42094328409238 times better

  17. I love the blue packaging–so fun! The color of this is nice, if not unique. I do like it much, much more than Orgasm though–the gold shimmer is finer and much more subtle. I like that

    Do you think this would be a good replacement for Mac Springsheen?

  19. Ashley

    I heard that Nars is working with Bare Minerals on their blush colors. Have you heard this as well? I really wanted Orgasm but after seeing this review I think I will give this a try.

  20. A bit shimmery for me, though seems a little subtler than Orgasm. A beautiful color and no doubt will be a bestseller :)

    I’m probably one of the few people who doesn’t own this shade, so I might put it on the list. :) I’ve been wanting to try their blush formula, as it is.

    The blue packaging is really cute, and I like this better than Orgasm. But do I *need* it? Hmm…

  23. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Amy xamyx

    This is too orange…

    I’ve been wanting to pick up Orgasm for a while now, I had Springsheen for years and loved it, but this is less expensive, has more in the pan, AND has a much better rating! I think I’m sold!

    That color looks amazing on you! You are able to pull off so many different colors on your cheeks, although this one looks even more glow-y than usual- I’d love to get my hands on it :)
    I’m pale, I’m so jealous of your skintone- You have such pretty skin and the tone of it makes nearly every color extremely flattering!

  26. Katie

    So, “Orgasm” blush without the breakout afterwards. I’m getting it.
