LORAC Vivid Color Source Buildable Blush ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a brighter, light-medum cotton candy pink with cooler undertones and a moderate shimmer. It’s hard to say that it’s a pearl finish, as it has more noticeable shimmer than that, but it’s not quite frosted either! NYX Flamingo (P, $5.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Thumper (P, $8.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Peony Pavillion (LE, $21.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar).

The Color Source Buildable Blush formula is supposed to offer–you guessed it–buildable color coverage with a “silky-smooth” consistency available in matte and satin finishes. This was the most pigmented of the three I tried–more medium coverage to opaque coverage, but the blendable, thinner texture was easy to apply less of or diffuse for sheerer color, if desired. The more shimmery finish on this one imparted a healthy glow to the skin that didn’t read as frosted or metallic, and it didn’t emphasize pores. The texture was a little drier and more powdery, but it didn’t seem to impede the application (I wouldn’t have really noticed it if I hadn’t swatched first). The color lasted for seven and a half hours on my skin when I tested it.
