Estee Lauder Mauve Mystique Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush

Estee Lauder Mauve Mystique Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium, pinky-plum with subtle, warm undertones and white sparkle. Black Opal Orchid (P, $8.95) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Rebel Rose (P, $34.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Revolution All I Think About is You (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Please Yourself (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Clinique Black Honey Pop (P, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Birthday Suit (P, $8.00) is lighter (85% similar). Laura Geller Roseberry (P, $28.00) is warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Plum (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). NARS Ferocious (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The formula is supposed to have an “ultra-silky” texture that gives a “healthy-looking glow” and a “rush of fresh, radiant color.” The press release is more specific and says it’s supposed to have “buildable dewy color that lasts all day.” According to the brand, the blush formula is a reformulation, but I don’t have any shades in the previous formula to compare to (and it’s been awhile since I last tried one, so all I can say is that they feel, in general, a little smoother). The texture was smooth, thin, but blendable, though there were bits of looser sparkle–most of it didn’t translate on the skin, but the ones that do are visible on the skin. I wish they had gone for a finer shimmer, as it would look better on the skin (and it would also differentiate this from other plums in the range). It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage that lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a lightly dusty texture that ended up being surprisingly blendable in practice. The blush looked glowy on the skin rather than dry or powdery, which was also a pleasant surprise. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear on me.

The texture was smooth but thin, and it was harder to build-up coverage to more than medium, even after a few layers. I didn’t have any trouble blending out the edges or evening out the color, but this is a shade that is best suited for someone who prefers sheer coverage out of their blushes. The color lasted for seven hours on me.

The texture was smooth, neither too firm nor too soft, and it sat well on the skin as it became slightly dewy as it buffed and worked into the skin. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear.

The TruBlend Blush formula is supposed to be blendable and create a “multi-toned result.” The texture is very soft and smooth, though it is a little on the powdery side; it tended to darken on the skin, but this seemed to ensure that it didn’t look dry or powdery when applied. It is, as described, easily blended and effortless to apply. The finish is really flattering on the skin without being too shimmery or too matte. The downside is that the more powdery texture makes it harder to build-up the color (it’s semi-sheer to semi-opaque), and it only lasted for six and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

On my skin, the blush wore well for seven and a half hours before fading.
