For summer, Becca has launched a six-shade line-up of blushes designed to have “just the right balance of color and light” that can be worn alone or “as a blush topper.” It seems like it’s somewhere between sheerer like a highlighter and more pigmented like a blush (hence why it can also be layered), which is the best I can surmise from their marketing (there’s a lot of use of subtle as well, which at least indicates, to me, that they’re not saying it’s ultra pigmented)–I definitely wish it was clearer, though. I noticed that layering is best with a very, very light hand and a feathery brush or else the original blush can get overshadowed, as the formula runs semi-opaque. Much like the Shimmering Skin Perfectors, a little can go a long way. Tigerlily had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a frosted shimmer-sheen finish. Applied and blended out, the result is softly glowing without being too glittery, but it has a moderate sheen. It didn’t emphasize pores for me, though. The texture was soft, lightly loose in the pan, and fairly dense. The color lasted for eight and a half hours before fading.

P.S. — I only have two of the six shades right now, as the other four are still coming soon/sold out at Sephora. They are available through Becca’s website as well.

Sephora x Disney | Minnie’s Inner Glow Luminizing Blush

Sephora x Disney | Minnie's Inner Glow Luminizing Blush
Sephora x Disney | Minnie’s Inner Glow Luminizing Blush

Sephora x Disney | Minnie’s Inner Glow Luminizing Blush ($22.00 for 0.39 oz.) is described as a “soft luminizer with a peachy glow.” It’s a light-medium, peachy-orange with warm undertones and a soft, gold shimmer. Too Faced Luminous Peach (LE) is darker (90% similar). MAC Freshen Up (LE, $35.50) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Style Cast (LE, $22.00) is more muted (90% similar). Tarte Bubbly (LE, $28.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). YSL Rebelle (7) (P, $47.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Blazing Haute (LE, $27.00) is darker (85% similar). NARS Esoteric (LE, $30.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

There’s not a whole lot of information regarding the formula, other than it is a highlighting blush, so it imparts both color and glow, which it does for light to medium-dark skin tones; darker skin tones may find it adds warmth and sheen but not necessarily visible color. The texture was soft, lightly dry, and blendable; it could have been more finely-milled, but applied, I didn’t notice that it wasn’t as smooth as it could have been. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff, and the shimmer produced a soft sheen but didn’t emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture. On me, it lasted for seven and a half hours.

Burberry London With Love Blush Highlighter

Burberry London with Love Blush Highlighter
Burberry London with Love Blush Highlighter

Burberry London with Love Blush Highlighter ($68.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a light-medium pink with subtle, warmer undertones and a luminous shimmer-sheen finish. It is made up of a lighter, warm white highlighter and a deeper, medium-dark pink with a satin finish. Urban Decay Cherry (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Pearl Blossom (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Head Over Heels (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). NARS Fervor (Left) (P) is warmer (85% similar). NARS Robotic (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It sold out within a few days of launching at Sephora (and I believe it was previously on Burberry’s website), but if it ever launches elsewhere or restocks, hopefully this review is of use. (Or if you missed out, providing you with dupes.) It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that applied well to skin, didn’t emphasize pores, and lasted for eight hours before fading. It’s as described–a highlighting blush–so it adds color and luminosity. I wish Burberry would consider adding highlighters to their permanent range, because I think they’ve done a good job with the texture of their recent releases, so it would be a great thing to make permanent.

The Mineralize Skinfinish formula is described as a “velvety soft” face powder with a “radiant finish” that can be used to “add highlights to the high points of the face.” The Mineralize Skinfinish Collection for spring features five new, limited edition shades — the collection debuts on March 31st online. Perfectly Lit had good pigmentation with a very soft, smooth consistency that blended out beautifully on the skin with even, diffused edges. The texture was more shimmery on the skin than it was with other shades, and it just slightly emphasized pores on my skin. This was the least versatile shade, as the four hues in the compact were less contrasting than in the other compacts. When I tested this shade, the color wore well for seven hours before breaking down.

The TruBlend Blush formula is supposed to be blendable and create a “multi-toned result.” It was the richest and deepest shade of the three that CoverGirl came out with this spring. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture (very key with a color like this!) that applied beautifully to the skin. The texture ran a smidgen dusty, but it didn’t look dry or powdery on me. This shade wore well for seven hours before there were signs of fading.

Nuanced had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and lightly dusty consistency that was incredibly easy to blend out on the skin. I was surprised the texture didn’t emphasize pores, but it applied in such a way that it gave a good sheen instead. On me, the color started to break down after seven hours of wear.
