Estee Lauder Mauve Mystique Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium, pinky-plum with subtle, warm undertones and white sparkle. Black Opal Orchid (P, $8.95) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Makeup Revolution All I Think About is You (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

MAC Please Yourself (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Laura Geller Roseberry (P, $28.00) is warmer (85% similar).

The formula is supposed to have an “ultra-silky” texture that gives a “healthy-looking glow” and a “rush of fresh, radiant color.” The press release is more specific and says it’s supposed to have “buildable dewy color that lasts all day.” According to the brand, the blush formula is a reformulation, but I don’t have any shades in the previous formula to compare to (and it’s been awhile since I last tried one, so all I can say is that they feel, in general, a little smoother). The texture was smooth, thin, but blendable, though there were bits of looser sparkle–most of it didn’t translate on the skin, but the ones that do are visible on the skin. I wish they had gone for a finer shimmer, as it would look better on the skin (and it would also differentiate this from other plums in the range). It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage that lasted for seven and a half hours on me.
