Marc Jacobs Irresistible (210) Shameless Bold Blush
Marc Jacobs Irresistible (210) Shameless Bold Blush

Marc Jacobs Irresistible (210) Shameless Bold Blush ($30.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium apricot orange with warm, tangerine undertones and a satin finish. NARS Soulshine #2 is warmer, more orange. Chanel Presage is richer, cream. NARS Gilda is slightly darker. Chanel Tweed Brun Rose is lighter. Chanel Frivole is matte, more intense. See comparison swatches.

The formula is supposed to “[bring] unprecedented vibrancy to your cheeks” with “pure, unadulterated color.” It will be available in nine shades when it launches on August 9th (midnight). Of all the products I’ve tried from the range, the blush was the one that was just so-so. The texture was somewhat dry and stiff, though it still managed to have decent to good color payoff.  It applied unevenly and took some buffing and eventually blending around the edges with additional foundation to soften the edges and make it look even. There was also a slight emphasis of pores.  I don’t think I’d go as far as call it “pure, unadulterated color.” It’s buildable, but it looks softer and more muted swatched than it does in the pan. It lasted well for seven hours and had showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.  This is the only shade I’ve tried in the formula, so it may be the odd one out (or may be par for the course–time will tell!). The price point actually seemed quite reasonable and lower than one would expect, given the price points of other products in the range.

10 thoughts on “Marc Jacobs Irresistible (210) Shameless Bold Blush Review, Photos, Swatches

  1. You’re fabulous for your timing and ! thank you ! for reviewing a MJ blush this evening prior to the launch. I’m sitting here drooling over the very healthy number of plum based blushes in this collection. So the swatches look pretty good, smooth and consistent, but I’m guessing it’s more about texture and blending difficulties. Okay, so at a $30 price point, this is a more reasonably priced product in the line, and I’m willing to take a bit of a risk because of it, but I’ve definitely paired down my initial want list as a result of your review. My next observation, the blush seems rather one dimensional in comparison to some of my other favourite blush brands, but love the colour spectrum nonetheless.

    • I just got permission to post today instead of tomorrow this afternoon, so I was not quite as prepared as I would have liked to be, LOL!

      Yes, this is definitely a product that LOOKS better in the photos than I felt when I was using it. Better than a product that looks terrible and performs well, I guess.

      What is on your list?

      • Initially, I really wanted to grab that super dark berry – 218 Deep Berry, but I figure it is far too dark for me given the application issues…a potential blending nightmare so I’m leaning towards 214 – Promiscuous (a softer more muted berry) and 206 – Reckless (a medium to light plum). I also like the look of 204 – Obsessed ( a burnt rose). Since my mission is to grab blushes in the berry/plum family for this fall, I think I will grab the first two and see how they go. The great thing about blush, you can always adjust it a bit by layering :D

  2. Looks pretty on you :) i’m not sure about ths shade on me !!

  3. I love this shade! Too bad about the formula, though.

  4. Amalia

    The blush and the foundation are perfect on you! I love it.

  5. Pretty shade but you shouldn’t have to work so hard @ that price range!
