Estee Lauder Lover’s Blush Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a soft, light-medium coral with warm undertones and a golden, satin shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff that was buildable to medium coverage.

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush formula is supposed to have an “ultra-silky” feel that gives “fresh” and “radiant” color to the cheeks, while the press release was more specific and stated that it should have “buildable dewy color that lasts all day.” The texture was smooth but firm, so it took some prodding to get enough product to transfer on a brush (or else use a denser brush altogether) to apply to the cheeks to begin with. It blended out fairly well, but I think the lighter color made it a little more forgiving compared to a deeper shade. It wore for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

Chanel Elegance (370) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin sheen. The formula is supposed to be “soft” and “silky” with a radiant finish. Elegance had good color payoff–not quite opaque but definitely buildable to opaque coverage in two layers–with a soft, silky texture that didn’t kick up much excess powder in the pan. The blush blended out beautifully on the skin and gave it a natural sheen that did not look shimmery, just glowy. On me, it wore well for just over eight hours before fading.

Chanel Coco Code Harmonie de Blush ($70.00 for 0.38 oz.) is a soft, medium pink-coral with fine gold shimmer over a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage.

The Harmonie de Blush formula is described as a “multi-task[ing]” product that can be used for highlighting, bronzing, or blushing. There are four shades–a light, shimmery pink, peachy-brown, coral-red, and golden beige–that are easiest to use swirled together, though you can concentrate your blush more toward two of the four shades (vertically or horizontally) for more/less shimmer or color. The majority of the color comes from the coral-red, while most of the shimmer comes from the golden beige. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too powdery or too firm in the pan, so it was easy to apply to the skin. As I blended the blush out, it yielded a luminous sheen that wasn’t noticeably shimmery on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

Poppy Passion

Estee Lauder Poppy Passion Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a bold, medium-dark red with warmer undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff from the get-go, which was buildable to full coverage, if desired.

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush formula is supposed to have an “ultra-silky” feel that gives “fresh” and “radiant” color to the cheeks, while the press release was more specific and stated that it should have “buildable dewy color that lasts all day.” The finish on this shade was rather matte, and it did not seem to get more luminous when blended (which can happen with more satin finish powders), so I can’t say that it was really radiant or dewy on the skin. The texture was thinner and could have been more blendable in practice, as it was fussy and took a lot of maneuvering just to get it to look mostly even. It did, however, wear for almost nine hours on me.

Brillante Idée

Surratt Beauty Brillante Idée Artistique Blush ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage, so only the barest tap of the brush was necessary for semi-sheer coverage on my skin tone.

The Artistique Blush formula is supposed to have a “natural-looking glow” with a “satin finish.” What I think separates the formula apart from many others is the texture–smooth, finely-milled, incredibly blendable–and the finish–often satiny, natural but not noticeably shimmery. I think that this shade is a good example of the formula, as the brightness and richness of the color are still easy to manage due to the blendability of the formula. If you use a lighter hand, it seemed to look more coral, whereas a heavier hand gave it a more orange-red vibe. The color wore nicely for eight and a half hours on me before fading.

Estee Lauder Pink Ingenue Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that was true-to-pan in color and depth.

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush formula is supposed to have an “ultra-silky” feel that gives “fresh” and “radiant” color to the cheeks, while the press release was more specific and stated that it should have “buildable dewy color that lasts all day.” The texture was a little firmer int he pan but still soft, finely-milled, and fairly easy to blend on the skin. It wore well for eight hours before fading on me.
