Poppy Passion

Estee Lauder Poppy Passion Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a bold, medium-dark red with warmer undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff from the get-go, which was buildable to full coverage, if desired.

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 finish on this shade was rather matte, and it did not seem to get more luminous when blended (which can happen with more satin finish powders), so I can’t say that it was really radiant or dewy on the skin. The texture was thinner and could have been more blendable in practice, as it was fussy and took a lot of maneuvering just to get it to look mostly even. It did, however, wear for almost nine hours on me.

Gorgeous, gorgeous color here. What a shame that it was a fuss-pot to apply at this high a price point, though!
I’ll sit tight and continue to keep Nars Unfiltered I in my sites for January. As that one is worth it.

I am a little bit scared of matte finish on blushes. it’s just so hard to apply? heheh although, matte matches my oily skin! all in all, I love the color!

btw, are all of your posts safe after the down time? i hope all is well and happy holidays, Christine, hubby and Mellan! xx

Everything is safe! It was a planned upgrade, so everything was synced, then shut down, and then started back up so it was exactly the same data 🙂

I love the opacity on this and in my mind that is perfect. I wish there was a hint more satin to it as claimed. I’m not a bold blush person due to my Rosacea but this could be pulled off on a good day!

I’m surprised Cola Pop isn’t listed as a dupe — when I compare them side-by-side in your swatch generator, except for the depth of pigmentation, they seem identical.

I usually only look for dupes within so many steps of the finish, so if it’s fairly matte, then anything with a lot of shimmer I usually don’t include!
