Round-up: Makeup Geek Blushes Thoughts & Comparisons

Makeup Geek Blushes ($9.99 for 0.15 oz.) are a much welcomed addition to the world of blush!  The formula is amazing, and the price point just makes it all the sweeter, but these perform just as well as any other A-rated blush at $30+ (that’s why price doesn’t impact the ratings, so an A product is an A product, whether $5 or $50!).  The texture is phenomenal, as they’re soft, smooth, and blendable but not powdery.  They have good color payoff, wear well, and are all-around worth considering if you’re in need of blush.  I’d like to see a few deeper shades for darker skin tones, as well as a couple of contour and highlighting shades, added to the range in the future.
