Smashbox Ecstasy Blush

Smashbox Cosmetics – Blush Rush Blush – Photos & Swatches

Smashbox’s Blush Rush Blushes ($24.00 each) are available in eight shades. It is a powder blush with soft sheen or subtle shimmer, but nothing glittery or chunky in the least bit. Smooth texture, well-pigmented (but not intensely pigmented), these blushes offer great colors for everyday wear. We were able to snap photos and grab swatches of six of the eight (missing Heartbreak and Paradise) at our local Smashbox counter. Flush and Chiffon were my faves! (Chiffon is curiously a bit like NARS’ Orgasm.)

Where to Buy: Nordstrom.com

    Christine,Do you think Chiffon would be too much for my NW45/47 skintone?

    I really really like Smashbox blushes. The pigmentation is just right like you said, not too much but def not too little. The wear time is great on these too. My blush lasts all day. I religiously wear one of the colors that was discontinued, Proof Sheet. It saddens me that its no longer available but I found it online a month ago so bought a few as back-up so i should be in good shape for about another year or more. It really is such a smooth gorgeous blush!

    I want all of these! I’m a big fan of Smashbox blushes. Currently I have the Blush Rush in Masterpiece from the Muse collection, Publish (which I got for free during the Let’s Do Lunch promo), and a Smashbox blush in Aperature which I got from allcosmeticswholesale.com

    Masterpiece and Aperature have to be my favorite colors because they are really nice neutral peaches that just sort of give my skin a glow! Unfortunately they don’t sell Aperature on the Smashbox site.

    I just bought Chiffon a week ago and I LOVE IT!

    It looks really nice with my skin tone (NC35). I have gone through 4 different MAC blushes, all which I hated….this color saved me lol

    Christine is dead on about the pigment, it is not overwhelming, and you can build on it which is great…and yes it has a similarity to Orgasm too!

    I looooove Ecstasy :)

  7. Looks like Chiffon is right up my alley. I might have to go take a quick peek at this next time!! :D It’s so pretty~

    For those who are interested in the blushes;

    QVC sells a kit that has 2 blushes and the blush brush! The cool thing is the brush alone is worth the price of the kit.. so you get the two blushes for about a dollar more.

    just thought i’d let you guys know!

    Is Flush similar to Chanel’s Pink Explosion?

    I’ve never owned NARS’ Orgasm, but if I were to ever try it, I’d definitely go with Chiffon because the shimmer doesn’t look quite as obvious! Bare really interests me. How would you describe this color?

    I just got Chiffon, Bare, and Paradise, now I want the rest of them. They are amazing. I actually like Chiffon more then NARS orgasm which is hard for me to admit because Nars Orgasm is my all time favorite.
