Pulse

Flesh Beauty Pulse Tender Flesh Blush ($26.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dakr plum with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had excellent color coverage in a single layer, though I felt like I could use less and get more buildable coverage if preferred. The texture was soft and smooth without being too softly nor too firmly pressed in the pan. There was a subtle shimmer in the pan, but it was mostly matte on my cheeks once blended out. It applied well without needing too much effort to be blended, but it could have been a little more effortless. This shade stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.14 oz. - $185.71 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "richly pigmented" with a "cream-like powder" texture that is "infused with mica pearls for a glowy, soft focus effect," though there are two finishes--matte and frost. From the shades I trialled, they were pigmented and long-wearing (eight to nine hours) with some shades blending better than others. The texture is denser and firmer without powderiness, but I wouldn't describe the ones I tried as stiff.

Beautiful color, but there are dupes listed that I feel like I would enjoy using far more than Pulse. In particular; MAC Love Thing or Clinique Black Honey Pop. Or even just the full size of Nars Goulue while I still can, right?

Fell in love with the shade of this on your cheek,and in the pan, and was DROOLING over it.

Looked at the dupes, and my HG blush, black honey pop, is a 95% dupe.

Looks like I’m good!

Ooh, looks like I need to add Black Honey Pop to my want list!

(I really, really hate the fingerprint design. It makes me cringe every time I see it. It just looks dirty to me.)
