bareMinerals Swoon Blush ($19.00 for 0.03 oz.) is described as a “petal pink satin.” It’s a light-medium, pink-coral with a matte finish. Fyrinnae Nordic Angel (P, $6.50) is warmer, slightly more orange. MAC Lured to Love (LE, $25.00) is lighter.MAC Passion for Colour (LE, $21.00) is a touch warmer. Edward Bess Secret Affair (P, $43.00) is darker. MAC Supercontinental (LE, $21.00) is pinker, less matte. Burberry Blossom (P, $42.00) is several shades darker. See comparison swatches.

The texture was soft, silky, and very finely-milled. When applied to the skin, it blends beautifully–no harsh edges, no powderiness, just soft color. It had good color payoff, though it is a more buildable blush than it is incredibly intense from the get-go. I wore it on a couple of days ago, and it wore well for almost eight hours–just slight fading but no patchiness. This shade is part of the spring True Romantic collection, and it is new and limited edition.

I was hoping for a good review- yes! I feel like you can just see how softly it blends! i’ve really been wanting one try one of these loose powder blushes, and I also love the rose gold packaging!

Hey Bonnie!

I usually just use a regular blush brush – same as for pressed powder – but if it is a really pigmented loose blush, then MAC’s 131 or 188!

Wow, that looks so pretty on you! I!’my glad it’s buildable though – if it went straight on like it looks in the swatch, little old vampirically pale me would be in trouble! 🙂

Thanks, Stella!

I use a regular blush brush (same as I would for pressed), but if it’s really pigmented I might use a stippling brush (MAC 131 or 188). The big tip would be to get a little on the brush, swirl in the cap, then apply!
