Too Faced Love Flush Blush Palette

Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe ($36.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six, miniature-sized blushes–all six that exist in the Love Flush range. The palette contains $52 worth of blush, and it is a nice way to try six for less than the price of two full-sized ones. I love the concept, and I think the quality is on-par with or better than the permanent, individual pans that came out. The big takeaway is that I think the formula is better than it rates, as it primarily gets dinged for not lasting the 16-hours promised (wear is between eight and ten hours), so if getting half the stated wear-time isn’t a deal-breaker, the formula is well-worth a look, whether an individual shade or the palette. The shades were extremely consistent with the individual compacts I tested previously; I specifically tested the shades in the palette for quality and wear, but for the photos of the blushes on my face, those were taken from original reviews.

MAC Cheek Pollen & Spellbinder Blushes

MAC Cheek Pollen Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “warm nude [with a Satin finish].” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a satin shimmer-sheen finish. It was richly pigmented with a really soft, smooth, almost buttery consistency that applied well to the skin. It blended out beautifully, while the satin finish gave the skin luminosity without emphasizing pores. On me, it lasted for eight hours.

NYX Magnetic & Ritualistic Illuminators

NYX Magnetic Illuminator ($9.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-coral with warm undertones and a frosted, golden sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, slightly dry consistency in the pan, but it applied well to the skin without looking caked on. The shimmer was just shy of pore-emphasizing-territory, so that was nice! I think this one is a more versatile shade that can be worn as a subtler highlighter or layered for greater glow. It wore well for seven hours on me. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Glow #4 (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). bareMinerals The Many Splendors #2 (LE) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Highlighter (Softcore) (LE, $55.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Benefit Sugarbomb (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Perfect Topping (2014) (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). NYX Soft Spoken (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Starlight (P, $44.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
