NARS Dolce Vita (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer. Chanel Rouge (LE, $45.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer. NARS Seduction (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer. NYX Apricot (P, $15.00) is warmer. MAC Glamour Feast (LE, $21.00) is darker, glossier. Kevyn Aucoin Neolita (P, $37.00) is warmer. NARS Goulue (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter, more muted. IT Cosmetics Radiant in Rose (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, more muted. Surratt Beauty Rougeur (P, $32.00) is darker. ColourPop Cheerio (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, brighter. Clinique Cola Pop (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Glow #5 (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Of the shades I’ve tried, this one seemed to have the least shimmer and sheen, but it wasn’t quite matte; as I buffed and blended the powder into the skin, it retained a natural finish that was less than a true satin but definitely not matte. It had mostly opaque color payoff (which makes it less true to the “buildable” quality of the formula), which may be great for some but too much work for others. I would recommend using a lighter hand or a more feathery brush to start off with this to figure out how much (or little) you need for your particular skin tone and application style. The texture was firmer than all of the other shades, and there was a slight dryness to it yet it wasn’t really stiff. It wasn’t quite as easily blended out as the majority of the line, but it wasn’t a lot of extra effort in comparison, which was good news. This shade wore for eight and a half hours before fading around the edges.

Formula Summary | Becca Mineral BlushBecca Mineral Blush ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) is supposed to be a “delicate powder blush” with a “buildable formula” that gives a “natural-looking, flushed appearance.” They typically have a soft, creamy consistency that is a little denser than the average powder but not truly dense. Some of the very shimmery shades feel a little dry compared to the more pearly ones. I found the formula to be incredibly easy to apply and blend on the skin without any need for special tricks; they felt very grab-and-go, the kind of blush where there’s no fight to diffuse and soften edges or get even coverage. They are more pigmented than what I’d term as “buildable,” which some will appreciate, some will be disappointed by. The wear ranges from seven to nine hours with the brighter and more satin-to-matte shades lasting longer. My favorite part of the formula is the luminous sheen they give to the skin, so they don’t look too shimmery on the skin. I think if you find Becca’s pressed highlighters to be too shimmery, you may find their blushes more up your alley with respect to finish.

Another gorgeous one! I have Cola Pop, so I’m covered. Which is good, because I think this way too pigmented for my vampire skin.

Totally understand! I like medium coverage that’s buildable and I’m medium in tone, so I can only imagine if I was even fairer, I’d want at least that or less, lol!

Wow, this is super pigmented, great for darker skin tones. Wish they would make a lipstick in this color, I would be all over it !

The color in the swatch was waaay darker than I expected. It’s beautiful, but it would be very hard for me to wear enough to justify purchasing it.

I’m doing pretty good. Still having minor pain . But , I have honestly been doing way more than I should have been. My daughter is having a sleepover Birthday party Saturday. So, I’ve been trying to get my house ready and get things ready for that . But, my pain is much less. I’m still having some. The doctors said give it a month for the full effect and I’m only 2 weeks post-op on Fri. I’m on less medication already and my pain level is at least 85 -90 % less and it’s only in one area vs all of my face. It’s tolerable. It’s great to feel normal again! Thanks for asking Christine!

Thanks Christine! Her actual Birthday was July 8th. Due to my surgery being scheduled on the 10th,we could only celebrate with a family dinner and gifts , of course. This is her friends party.So,she gets a full month of Birthday celebrating,lol. I know I should have been resting much more. But,the whole ceiling falling in thing kinda knocked my plan and the house has been a mess. Oh well, things are looking up and at least I feel well enough to clean and hang pictures,etc. I haven’t really felt like doing those things in so long!

Very light hand + duo fiber brush and you can rock it 😉 But I totally get you — sometimes a blush you can’t overdo is easier!

GORGEOUS shade, but I already have Cola Pop, so I’m good! Ironically, I wore Cola Pop yesterday along with my favorite red lipstick, Maria Moretti, warm, neutral matte eye w/ black cat-eye liner; very GLAM look!
