Buxom Ibiza Wanderlust Primer-Infused Blush ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a deep p ink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was the least shimmery shade in the shades released (at the time of this review), so for those who prefer matte finishes, this might be the pick. It had intense color payoff in a single layer, and it was the type of pigmentation where a little went a long way–I’d recommend using a light hand or even an airier, less-dense brush to apply to make it easier to diffuse and apply. It was fairly blendable, but if I applied too much, it definitely became harder to maneuver and correct. This shade stayed on well for 10 hours before starting to fade on me but was still very visible after 12 hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.13 oz. - $169.23 Per Ounce

The powder blush is supposed to have "12-hour wear" thanks to the "primer-infused" formulation that is supposed to "seamlessly blend" with a "luminous finish." It is scented with a "subtle, beachy scent" (it smells a bit like coconut and suntan lotion... aptly described a"beach," but wasn't a scent I detected much on, though my sense of smell has been dulled down lately). Most of the shades had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation--and some where intensely pigmented to the point where the warning "use with a light hand" comes into play--with soft, finely-milled consistencies that were a little dusty in the pan.

The finish varied from satin to more pearlescent, and one shade has larger sparkles to it, so you'll want to pay attention to the finish of a particular shade if you are particular about the level of shine/shimmer in your cheek colors. I noticed that most of the shades applied darker and richer on my skin, both my forearm as well as my cheeks, than they appeared in the pot. The blushes blended out well and lasted between nine and 11 hours on me--definitely a bit longer wearing than average. They looked smoother and were more forgiving of skin texture when worn on bare skin than the average powder blush, too.

Based solely on the arm swatch, I really thought for sure that this one would be one of my top 3 picks for myself. Looking at it applied, however, may have just changed my mind. Strong pink blushes can look very clownish against my skintone. Back in the 80’s with my heavy blonde highlights and spiral permed big hair plus being a 20-something, this was exactly what I wore back then! And now I just look horrible in super bright, cooler (to my eye) shades of pink. I think this is one I will need to try on first. It is my favorite out of the 3 bright pinks by Buxom!

Buxum have done a good job with these, so far I like all of their blushers. I hope they will eventually make their way to a store near where I live, so I can swatch them, the big downside of moving from a biggish city to the countryside, actually, for me, the only downside.
