  1. I really want Ethereal Glow. I’ve been on the hunt for a very light, cool pink blush but I hear that this blush might disappear on my already very pale-ish, cool toned skin.

  2. I’ll have to get my hands on Ethereal Glow! ;-)

  3. I really would like to pick up Radiant Magenta and Diffused Heat, but the reviews seem to be somewhat mixed. This looks like one of those products that I need to see and swatch in person before making the plunge!

    Everytime I see Mood Explosure, I immedietly have it. But I already have more blushes than I need.
    Though almost all my blushes are matte, so maybe I could get it…?

  5. Hooray! I have so many blushes that I don’t want to splurge before swatching them on my skin tone first, just in case! Time to brave the mall crowds!

  6. I really want to check these out in-store. Ethereal Glow looks like it might be something I could wear; ditto Luminous Flush but I’ll have to see. I might be better off just getting one of the new Pop blushes from Clinique and buffing a bit of highlighter over that but, knowing me, if there’s a cool toned option, I’ll probably cave and buy it.

    I was contemplating getting Diffused Heat or Radiant Magenta… and then came along Clinique Pop blushes! Next time Clinique has a good gift with purchase from Macys or something, I’m picking one up! Probably Ginger or Peach… love me some corals :)

  8. I can’t wait to see them in stores!!

    Which one do recommend for nc25/30 color?

    • Pretty much any will work – Ethereal Glow may be too light!

      • Catherine R.

        I have oily, very fair cool skin. Would the luminous flush be too dark? I wear Gingerly by MAC right now and I tend t shy away from shimmer blushes because of my oily skin but I thought this would be pretty for summer.

    These all look beautiful, and look gorgeous on you in all your pics! Thanks very much for your work reviewing these, you’ve done an excellent job (as always) and after reading through your reviews, I picked up Radiant Magenta today! I was contemplating on buying Nars Love based on your review of that as well, but decided on Radiant Magenta instead, since it has a bit of sheen and is a bit lighter, as per your review. I love it and can’t wait to wear it!

  12. Ohh! I did originally like Diffused Heat but I’m swaying more towards Mood Exposure.

    I bought Diffused Heat yesterday at Sephora’s and I love it. It makes me look “healthy”. I am fair skinned, Ethereal was too light for me. Also tried the Ambient powder – the light pink one (I can’t remember the name of the color) and it is lovely too (did not buy it yet but its on my wish list).

  14. Dim Infusion & Radiant Magenta are the two I’m considering!
