The Colorful Blush formula is supposed to be long-wearing, buildable, and have a lightweight texture. My experience with the formula has shown that they’re soft, lightly powdery at times (some are worse than others) with semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage that blends fairly well and lasts seven to eight hours. There is some variance between shades, but there are some gems in the range. Flirt It Up had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, silky texture that was just a smidgen powdery. It’s one of the brighter shades I’ve tried from the range, but it was still fairly blendable on the skin and diffused without a lot of work. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

There is some variance between shades, but there are some gems in the range. Jubilant had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff that illuminated the skin with a luminous sheen that didn’t emphasize the skin’s natural texture or enlarge pores. For farier skin tones, this may work as a blushing highlighter, while darker skin tones may see more highlighting and light brightening. The powder had a smooth, soft-to-the-touch consistency that didn’t run powdery or dry, so it was nicely balanced and blended out beautifully. When I tested it for longevity, the blush/highlighter lasted for eight hours on me.

There is some variance between shades, but there are some gems in the range. Love Sick leans slightly cooler-toned, but on my warmer skin tone, it looks a lot warmer applied to my face as blush, but I fully expect it to be truer-to-color on those with neutral or cooler undertones. The texture was soft, smooth, fairly blendable while having buildable coverage that went from semi-sheer to mostly opaque with two to three layers. There’s a very subtle sheen to the finish, especially as it is worked into the skin, but it doesn’t look shimmery–more like a natural finish that looks like skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours on my normal-to-dry skin.

Sephora Fiji (25) Colorful Blush

Sephora Fiji (25) Colorful Blush ($15.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a softened, medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a fine, gold shimmer-sheen. MAC Delicates (LE, $35.50) is darker (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Close-Up #3 (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Jolie (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Los Cabos (24) (P, $14.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

There is some variance between shades, but there are some gems in the range. As described, Fiji is a buildable shade from semi-sheer to mostly opaque coverage (two to three layers, and it doesn’t look like you’ve over-applied powder) with a soft, very lightly powdery consistency, that is blendable on the skin without emphasizing pores. The shimmer is noticeable but flatters the skin by giving it a lovely sheen. If you like your contour to have some shimmer, it could certainly be used as a contour on some skin tones, but it seems more like a traditional bronzing shade. On me, it wore well for eight hours before fading slightly.

5 Faves: Summertime Coppers

Copper is a great color for summer and fall (though surely you can wear it any time of the year!), but it has a brightness and often comes in a more shimmery finish so it gives off that summer vibe while the reddish tones read autumnal as well. Here are a few summer favorites:

  1. Sephora Sly as a Fox — a matte copper eyeliner
  2. MAC Coppering — a shimmery, copper eyeshadow
  3. Becca Songbird — a luminous coppery blush
  4. NYX Wrath — a metallic copper lipstick
  5. Make Up For Ever D708 Pinky Copper — a lighter copper eyeshadow

There is some variance between shades, but there are some gems in the range. For fairer skin tones, this is going to work more as a highlighting blush, while medium and darker skin tones will find it more of a true highlighter that adds slight warmth but not a lot of noticeable color. The sheen it yields is lovely–glowing, luminous but never emphasizing. The texture was soft, blendable, and just a smidgen on the powdery side. On my normal-to-dry skin, it wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
