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 blush has a smooth texture that is firm, a little thin, but it wasn’t dry or dusty and applied well without being fussy to blend out. The coverage is buildable from semi-sheer to semi-opaque. On my skin, the blush wore well for seven and a half hours before fading.

Sensuous Rose (the old formulation at least) is my favourite natural looking blush, it seems to very closely match my natural blush, but mine’s getting old (it’s formed that hard filmy layer that makes it harder to get pigmentation), so it’s very useful to have an updated list of dupes here!

These are pretty, but I just don’t think I will jump on them at this price point. I can get amazing dupes for less and super high end for not much more.

However, I did want to say that I’ve been using the new Tarte foundation for a week now and I’m absolutely in love! I know it’s harder for you to test foundations and concealed, but you have never steered me wrong, Christine!

Oh, Idk, but I think that I really love those Kiko blushes better for this nice, soft natural looking blush! Plus a few other offerings from other brands lately. I guess I’m expecting better at $37.

This is one of the best blushes for pale peeps who are scared of blush. I love this one! Still curious to compare the ingredients on the new formula with the old to see if there ARE any differences. Sensuous Rose is the next best thing to MACs long discontinued Strada, which was the best blush on the PLANET for us ghoulishly white folk! Haha Both are just really pretty!
