Fair Maidens Get Swept Away with Buxom

Buxom Swept Away True Hue Blush ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “peachy nude.” It’s a pale peach with a hint of pink and a subtle sheen. MAC Stay By Me is actually a bit similar. NARS Sex Appeal is a bit more peach, less pink.  It has a lot in common with Sex Appeal, as it’s the kind of shade that isn’t universal but works really well for some.

Buxom’s True Hue formula is supposed to be “silky, sheer, and ultra-buildable.” It’s both sheer and very, very light in color, period, which means it’s not really an appropriate shade for my coloring (it’s just hard to see it!). From what I was able to see and gather from trying it out was that it’s mostly buildable, but it did seem to be just shy of true-to-pan color even when layered heavily. This was actually more likely due to the slightly dry texture, which made getting color more difficult than had it had a softer, creamier texture. Applied to my skin, it worked more as a highlighter; there was a soft, barely-there shimmer-sheen–nice and glowy–without much color. It looked nice, and the glowy sheen lasted a full eight hours on me. I would only recommend this shade for fairer complexions, though.
