Make Up For Ever #410 HD Blush
Make Up For Ever #410 HD Blush ($26.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “coral.” It’s a medium, coral-orange with a satin finish and warm undertones. Clinique Ginger Pop (01) (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, powder. Chanel Intonation (69) (LE, $38.00) is brighter. MAC Autoerotique (LE, $25.00) is more muted, powder. Fyrinnae Nordic Angel (P, $6.50) is more orange, lighter. Illamasqua Sleek (P, $26.00) is darker. Dior Pink Glow Blush (LE) is powder, warmer. See comparison swatches.
This is the other shade from Make Up For Ever’s new HD Blush formula that I tested, and it was consistent with the first shade. It had a lightly creamy texture in the compact that applied and felt like traditional cream blush initially, but after sitting on the skin for about thirty seconds, it turned into a powder finish that was satin-to-matte. The color applied evenly and smoothly, and it was easy to blend and work the color into the skin. It was nicely pigmented, so the color could look true-to-pan if desired, but it was easy enough to apply less or blend for a softer, sheerer look. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me.
