Buxom Euphoria True Hue Blush

Buxom Adds a Little Euphoria to Your Day

Buxom Euphoria True Hue Blush ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “lively coral.” In the pan, it looks like an orange-coral, but when I swatched it, the color was much more medium orange with a more tangerine-like hue when blended out. Illamasqua Expose is darker, less bright. MAC Optimistic Orange is a touch darker. NARS Gina is browner, more subdued.

Buxom’s True Hue formula is supposed to be “silky, sheer, and ultra-buildable.” While I was less impressed with Luvitate, Euphoria was much better! The texture was softer, more finely-milled without being dry nor powdery, while the payoff was sheer as advertised–but buildable, also as advertised–so you can use it without fear of overdoing it while medium and deep complexions can still use it, too.  The soft texture made it easy to apply, layer, and blend out Euphoria on the skin.  It wore for a full eight hours with no noticeable fading.

I'm so pleased that Euphoria turned out to be a much better performer than Luvitate! Now, I'm eager to see how other shades in the range perform.

    I saw on twitter a couple months ago that you were testing Bare Minerals’ Ready blushes. I was just wondering if you were going to post any reviews because I was curious about trying them! Thanks!

  2. Your eyes look gorgeous, Christine.. I barely noticed the blush :)

    Figures – the color that won’t work on me performs much better than the one that will. Due to the disparity between the two, I’m hesitant to buy any blush from this line until you review it! (Fortunately there are no shortage of other blushes I can buy in the meantime *g*)

  4. This whole look is gorgeous on you! The eyes, the lips, the blush – love it!

  5. *puts on list of things to look at next time I’m in sephora* :)

  6. Lisa

    WOW!!! I love it all! You look absolutely GORGEOUS in these pictures. What a great look on you! :)

  7. Lauren

    This blush looks absolutely beautiful on you – and your hair looks STUNNING in these photos!

    The blush is just okay but that lipgloss is WHOA sparkly! I love it!

  9. Nicoco Chanel

    This blush confuses me! It looks so coral, swatches so orange, and then looks pinker on your cheeks (on my screen, anyway)? Don’t confuse me like this, make up, I’m not intelligent enough to handle it!

  10. I swear, everything looks good on you! Is there a color that you cannot wear?

  11. Avatar of Pamela Pamela

    Your eyes look brighter, lighter than usual!

  12. I’ve only tried their lip glosses, great to know they have high quality blushes as well. Also, your eyes look absolutely STUNNING!!

  13. Simply beautiful, very soft and subtle, would probably look great with a lot of different looks.

    Oooh, your hair has never looked better and you really suit just a hue of color on the cheeks as opposed to a really flushed look…beautiful!

  15. Oh my goodness! You are so stunning in these photos! Wear your hair like this more often!

  16. Oooh, I like it. And that shade of teal looks awesome on you, by the way.

  17. Wow–it looks SO extremely bright but really is super pretty and flattering on you!

  18. Katelyn

    Are these $22 or $24? You have both prices listed :)

  19. Megan

    You look soooooo super gorgeous here. :D And that blush showed up a bit more orange that I expected based on the pan. It looks really nice on your skin.

  20. wenjing

    you look gorgeous with this makeup look
