Sephora Oh My Gosh Colorful Blush

Sephora Oh My Gosh (10) Colorful Blush
Sephora Oh My Gosh (10) Colorful Blush

Sephora Oh My Gosh (10) Colorful Blush ($14.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “red.” It’s a bright, medium-dark orange with strong, warm red undertones and a matte finish. It’s more orange than it is red, though. Colour Pop Girl Power (LE, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Duo N. 02 (Bottom) (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). NARS Exhibit A (P, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Slowburn (P, ) is darker (90% similar). Viseart Orange #3 (P, ) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Tonic (P, $8.00) is lighter (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Brillante Idée (P, $32.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC All Year Red (LE, ) is darker, more muted, cooler (80% similar). Viseart Orange #2 (P, ) is lighter, more muted, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Colorful Blush formula is supposed to be long-wearing, buildable, and have a lightweight texture. My experience with the formula–generally–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. It was intensely pigmented; I wouldn’t describe as a buildable formula at all, because even the barest touch of the brush results is very strong coverage. The consistency is lightly dusty, not too thin or too dense, and blends fairly well but could be a little easier to diffuse and even out on the skin. The color stayed on for eight and a half hours before fading.

Kat Von D Sid + Nancy Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Sid + Nancy Shade + Light Blush Duo
Kat Von D Sid + Nancy Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Sid + Nancy Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a new, permanent set that features a darker pink-coral paired with a peachy-pink. The blush formula is supposed to “stay vibrant for a full 24 hours of wear” with “silky powders” that “blend effortlessly into skin for a flawless, buildable finish.” The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” As we’re now at the seventh and final blush duo to review, I must sound like a broken record, but the darker shade is dismal and difficult to blend due to sheer pigmentation and chalky texture. The lighter shade was more powdery and less chalky, but it was at least more pigmented.

Sid (Shade) is described as a “bright tulip.” It’s a medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was disappointingly sheer (a far cry from “highly pigmented”) and incredibly chalky, thin, and difficult to blend. It’s the type of texture that tends to stick to wherever there are natural oils on the skin and then doesn’t want to blend or move, which results in fairly uneven, patchy application. I have tried these blush duos countless ways (beyond what I would normally test), and even applying them over a powdered face still requires two to three times the amount of effort to blend them out than even so-so blushes. The color wore well for eight hours, which is good, just not close to the marketed claim. Dior Corail Bagatelle (763) (LE, $43.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Tarte Bashful (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Too Faced How Deep is Your Love? (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). NARS Amour (P, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever B316 (P, $23.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Fleeting Romance (P, $23.50) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Autoerotique (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). NYX Apricot (P, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). NYX Summer Peach (P, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Pampered (LE, $28.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). Guerlain Coral Blush (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). NYX Pinched (P, $5.00) is cooler (90% similar). Laura Geller Boysenberry (P, $28.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). Tarte True Love (P, $28.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Smashing (LE, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Coral Flower (P, $49.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Paradise Lust (Bottom) (LE, ) is brighter (95% similar). theBalm Toile (P, $22.00) is darker, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Fruit Stand (DC, $8.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Fleur Power (P, $23.00) is cooler (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Nancy (Light) is described as a “ballet pink.” It’s a light, warm-toned pink with a matte finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff paired with a lightly dusty texture that was blendable. I found the shade to darken slightly on the skin compared to the majority of the other light shades, which while I expected them to, did not darken against the skin as much. The color faded after seven and a half hours of wear. Kat Von D Mallory (Light) (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). NARS 413 BLKR (Highlighter) (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Laura Mercier Sunset (LE, $24.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Blush Pink (LE, $35.50) is lighter (95% similar). Zoeva Yet to Come (P, ) is brighter (90% similar). NARS Sex Appeal (P, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). LORAC Luma (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). NARS Conquest (LE, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Kat Von D Samson + Delilah Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Samson + Delilah Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Samson + Delilah Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a new, permanent set of orange-y coral shades with matte finishes. The blush formula is supposed to “stay vibrant for a full 24 hours of wear” with “silky powders” that “blend effortlessly into skin for a flawless, buildable finish.” The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” The darker shade lacked pigmentation and had a really firm consistency that made it hard to apply and blend out evenly on the skin. The lighter shade was more pigmented and more blendable, though it was dusty to work with. The two together are more blendable than the dark shade alone, but on my skin tone, it is difficult for the two together to show up noticeably as there is little coverage overall (paired with a lighter color in general, there’s little hope if it’s very sheer!), but I would expect some color to show up on fairer skin tones when mixed — the lighter shade will dominate.

Samson (Shade) is described as a “bright poppy pink.” It’s a medium, orange-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer coverage that was buildable to semi-sheer after several layers of product. The consistency was firm, chalky, and extremely dry on the skin, and the powder tended to clump as I tried to get product out of the pan. On the skin, the blush applied unevenly and had a tendency to stick in some places but not adhere much (or at all) to other areas. It lasted for eight hours on me. Makeup Geek Summer Fling (P, $10.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Passion for Colour (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Illamasqua Flirtatious (LE, $26.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Smashbox Persimmon (LE, ) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Fyrinnae Nordic Angel (P, $10.00) is brighter (90% similar). Guerlain Petrouchka #9 (LE, ) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Anastasia Ginger (P, ) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Milani Coral Cove (05) (P, $8.99) is brighter, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Tongue Tied (LE, $8.00) is brighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Summer Fling (P, $9.99) is brighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Get Leid (P, $8.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Bonus (DC, $8.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). NYX Apricot (P, $5.00) is cooler (85% similar). NYX Cinnamon (P, $5.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar). Viseart Coral #1 (P, ) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Delilah (Light) is described as a “pale coral.” It’s a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation but had a tendency to sheer out easily (so blending was good) as it was dusty and thin. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me. LORAC Enchanted (LE, $23.00)(95% similar). Sephora Shame On You (01) (P, $14.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Spring Flock (LE, $23.00) is darker (90% similar). Hourglass Surreal Effect (LE, $35.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Unleashed (LE, $28.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Spell Bound (P, $10.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). NARS Angel Pride I (LE, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Overexposed (-, ) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Makeup Geek Blind Date (P, $10.00) is lighter (90% similar). Smashbox Petunia (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Ors et Merveilles #6 (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar).

Kat Von D Mickey + Mallory Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Mickey + Mallory Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a new, permanent set of peachy shades. The blush formula is supposed to “stay vibrant for a full 24 hours of wear” with “silky powders” that “blend effortlessly into skin for a flawless, buildable finish.” The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” The lightest shade comes the closest to delivering a decent blush that misses them mark on the 24-hour wear time but isn’t so far off the mark from the other claims, but the darker shade is still a disappointment.

Mickey (Shade) is described as a “baked peach.” It’s a muted, medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer pigmentation that built-up to semi-sheer color after three to four layers of product. The texture wasn’t quite as firm as the majority of the darker shades in the blush duos, but it wasn’t easy to work with. The very sheer coverage made it more forgiving on, as it was hard to see it anyway, so any patchiness wasn’t as noticeable at a normal viewing distance. The color lasted for eight hours before fading. Too Faced Mademoiselle (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Dior Coral Sunset (002) (LE, $57.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Satisfy (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Dim Infusion (P, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Shy One (LE, $23.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Viseart Coral #1 (P, ) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). bareMinerals The Summer Fling (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Illamasqua Lover (P, $26.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Risque (P, $28.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Gretel (Light) (P, ) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Ripe Peach (LE, $32.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Mallory (Light) is described as a “porcelain pink.” It’s a light pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage (!) with a dusty, lightly powdery consistency. This shade was easier to work with and blended out without turning patchy or putting up a fight. It did not show up visibly as a color on me, just a kind of mattified look (slightly powdery/chalky against my complexion), but the pigmentation was enough that it is more the result of my skin tone being a poor match for the color itself vs. lack of pigmentation. The blush lasted for seven hours. NARS 413 BLKR (Highlighter) (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Nancy (Light) (P, ) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Blush Pink (LE, $35.50) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Conquest (LE, $30.00) is cooler (95% similar). Laura Mercier Sunset (LE, $24.00) is darker (95% similar).

Kat Von D Hansel + Gretel Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Hansel + Gretel Shade + Light Blush Duo
Kat Von D Hansel + Gretel Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Hansel + Gretel Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a new, permanent set of copper and peach. The blush formula is supposed to “stay vibrant for a full 24 hours of wear” with “silky powders” that “blend effortlessly into skin for a flawless, buildable finish.” The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” As you might have guessed from the last three reviews, results were not impressive. The darker shade was sheer and difficult to blend on the skin, while the lighter shade was less firm in the pan and more powdery, so it was easier to blend but was still sheer. Neither shade made it in the realm of 24 hour wear. The two mixed together (just swirled with a brush) is better than either alone, but blending was still a pain and required an excessive amount of layers for it to show up for photos on my skin tone.

Hansel (Shade) is described as a “terracotta.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark reddish brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage and was buildable to semi-opaque after five layers of product (the heavy swatch pictured was five layers). The texture is incredibly firm and packed into the pan, which makes getting product out of the pan difficult. The firmer texture translates into a thinner, harder-to-blend consistency on the skin, not just swatched, and it tended to look splotchy applied. The color lasted for seven and a half hours, which isn’t bad, but it is bad in the light of a 24-hour wear claim. Chanel Jersey (80) (P, $45.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Milani Coral Beams #2 (P, ) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Cantaloupe (P, $23.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Milani Bronze Burst #2 (P, ) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Sephora Passionate (23) (P, $14.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Coppertone (P, $23.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Make You Mine (P, $23.50) is darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Stryke (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented (85% similar). NARS Gilda (P, $30.00) is cooler (85% similar). Too Faced Mademoiselle (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Bad Girl Gone Good (LE, $23.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Quarters (P, $8.00) is brighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Pleasure Model (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery, brighter (85% similar). NARS Liberte (-, $30.00) is darker, more pigmented (80% similar). Colour Pop Bonus (DC, $8.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Gretel (Light) is described as an “apricot.” It’s a light-medium pop of peach with warm, orange tones and a matte finish. It was sheer, and it was difficult to intensify as the consistency was powdery and on the chalky side. The color blended out a lot better than the darker shade, there just wasn’t much of it that was visible on my skin tone–what you see is eight passes of product and I can almost imagine there’s a pink tone to my cheek area. It lasted for eight hours. Makeup Geek Bliss (P, $10.00) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Prism (P, $23.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (90% similar). Zoeva Shy Beauty (P, $11.80) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Sunny Surprise (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Mickey (Shade) (P, ) is darker (85% similar). Catrice I Am Nuts About You (P, $5.99) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
