Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush
Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush

A Sweetheart for Your Sweet Cheeks

Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush ($29.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as a “rose pink shimmer,” “soft coral pink,” and “peachy pink shimmer.” It’s supposed to be used altogether or with an emphasis on one or more shades for your own “custom flush or highlight.” It is touted as a baked formula, buildable in color, and appropriate for all skin tones.

The pink shade is a pop of light-medium pink with subtle cool undertones and a soft, shimmery finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft though a touch dry. MAC I’m the One is cooler-toned, more magenta. MAC Pink Tea is fairly comparable. MAC Lovecloud is a touch lighter. Tarte Dollface is very similar.

The coral shade is a coral-orange with a barely-there sheen, but the color itself is low in pigment and was stiff to work with. It was odd, because the other two shades had a much better, softer texture, whereas this shade was hard. NARS Gilda is darker. MAC Modern Mandarin is more orange. Bobbi Brown Coral is a touch darker. Burberry Blossom is darker. MAC Supercontinental is similar.

The peach shade is more of a pinky-peach with a frosted shimmer-sheen finish. It had good color payoff, and it had the best texture of the there shades. Guerlain Peach Boy is less frosted.

Together, everything comes together as a soft, light-medium pink with a subtle shimmer-sheen finish. It’s a tiny bit warm-toned against my skin, but depending on your undertone and how much of the cooler pink shade you grab on your brush, it may become more neutral or cool-toned. Tarte Curious is more coral. MAC Immortal Flower is less shimmery.

I see those with light to light-medium skin tones really loving this; and if you have a medium complexion, if you like subtle, you may love it, too. Deeper complexions I think will find it lacking in pigmentation. The underlying base color doesn’t seem to read chalky or ashy, so it may still be worth a try, but I wasn’t able to build up the color at all on my cheeks beyond what you see in the photos.  I don’t usually have great luck with wear when it comes to baked products, and Sweethearts lasted a solid seven hours, which was good, but the wear did fall short of some of the better-wearing blushes I’ve come across (my average is closer to eight hours of wear).  

The blush sat well on the skin without looking powdery or emphasizing pores, so the texture translated well onto the skin.  I wish the middle shade had a better texture on its own, because I felt like it did not influence the altogether-color much as a result. You’ll need a smaller blush brush if you want to use them individually; they’re not impossibly small strips of color, but it’s more practical to use two strips at a time.

  1. This looks beautiful on you! You’re glowing! It’s too bad the coral shade was a bit stiff to work with, I think it would’ve added a bit more, ‘oomph’ to it. All complaints aside however, it really looks stunning on you!

    packaging is to die for though. I’m not making the plunge but I will say that too faced has previously made some of my favorite blushes – La vie en Rose && Papa don’t Peach. Judging by your photos, the finish looks similar to my favorite shades… It’s just too bad the middle shade flaked out.

  3. I’m super pale so I love these impossible to over apply blushes :). I really want this one! Only complaint I have is that I wish it came in a tin, I hate paper packaging for cosmetics…

    This is a product I would buy only because of how it looks.

  8. Belen

    Is it similar to the pink shade in MAC Pink Power?

    Like the Estee Lauder one you reviewed yesterday I’m only wanting this because it’s so pretty in the pan! I clearly have a problem!

  10. A little cutesy for me but I can see this being a huge seller

  11. Karolina

    So beautiful :)

  12. Jasmine

    So happy you did a review on this! I am of deeper complexion and most likely will not be buying this anymore lol.

    I have a hard time deciding whether I think the packaging is cute or tacky. It looks a bit juvenile for my taste. The shade, although not very exciting or unique, is probably a good go-to for lighter skin tones.

  14. cutesy packaging, really pretty color!

  15. This is adorable! The packaging is sweet and the colors I think are super pretty. I have a skin tone that’s on the lighter side so I do agree with you when you mention that lighter skin tones might like this a bit more because I really do. It doesn’t look like like it’d be too much but I could build it up if I wanted to for an evening look. Perfect ‘me’ gift just in time for Valentine’s.

    The packaging is a little twee, but it is a lovely shade! Something that would look very pretty on my pale skin. The better question is whether I need more blush or not. :P

    I just bought this today at Ulta and I fell absolutely in love with it! It looks amazing on my somewhat pale skin and I adore the texture.

    I grabbed this on impulse and I’m not sure if I’ll use it? But it was too pretty to pass up :)

  19. This is so cute! ;o) I always wonder about products like these, though — if the strips are substantially different textures, how will they wear away in the packaging? Are you going to end up with a weirdly large amount of the centre shade when you hit pan on the other two?

    Hitting pan: obviously not my area of expertise :P

  20. Good to know that it didn’t emphasize pores, as usually is an issue for me with shimmery blushes. *Adds to valentine’s day wish list*

    $44 in Australia! Looks cute but way too pricey.
