Lover's Blush

Estee Lauder Lover’s Blush Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a soft, light-medium coral with warm undertones and a golden, satin shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff that was buildable to medium coverage.

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush formula is supposed to have an “ultra-silky” feel that gives “fresh” and “radiant” color to the cheeks, while the press release was more specific and stated that it should have “buildable dewy color that lasts all day.” The texture was smooth but firm, so it took some prodding to get enough product to transfer on a brush (or else use a denser brush altogether) to apply to the cheeks to begin with. It blended out fairly well, but I think the lighter color made it a little more forgiving compared to a deeper shade. It wore for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

I really like this shade. I have Clinique Pink Honey Pop , but have lost interest lately since it reads cooler on me than I’d like. So this one could be just the thing for me. It’s going on my list.

It’s an “okay” blush, but definitely wouldn’t be fun to use, it seems. Plus the fact that it likely would have a hard time showing up very well on me as much more than a hint of something. Pass.
