Pink Poetry

Lisa Eldridge Pink Poetry Enlivening Blush ($34.00 for 0.5 oz.) is a vivid pop of pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It yielded semi-sheer to medium, buildable pigmentation depending on how much one applied; the brand recommended to use quite a small amount, which is what I did for swatches and achieved sheer, hard-to-overdo kind of coverage. I was able to build up coverage by going back over and patting on additional product (not much) where I wanted (e.g. apples).

The texture was lightly creamy, smooth, and less wet-feeling compared to some other shades; I’ve found the texture to vary noticeably from shade to shade with some being thinner, almost watery in comparison, and others to be denser and more velvety/cream-like. Nevertheless, it applied like the other shades; there were no issues working with it over bare skin or over foundation. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably on my skin.

I’ve had a couple of readers ask if there were any issues squeezing out product from the tubes, and I did not have issues with most of them, but Pink Poetry was challenging to dispense from the beginning (and hasn’t improved).

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.5 oz. - $68.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be buildable, though the brand advises to use the "tiniest dot" to start with to get a "translucent 'blushing from within' effect." It can be applied and blended out with fingertips or a foundation brush. The finish is described as "natural, skin-like" that isn't "too dewy or too matte."

From the shades I've tested so far, the formula is buildable from semi-sheer to mostly opaque, and it was easy to apply more if necessary. The needle-nose applicator allowed for a lot of control, so one could get closer to the "tiniest" amount as recommended.

The texture was lightweight, moderately emollient, and dried down to a natural to soft matte finish; one shade appeared more semi-matte (though not flat/dry) on my skin and the other was more emollient in the tube and as a result, somewhat dewier on my skin. The product applied evenly patted on bare skin or over foundation with a fingertip and blended out with little effort. They had a tendency to sheer out, which was as marketed, so they were more foolproof to work with.

It was a more transfer-resistant formula, The blush lasted between eight and nine hours on me before showing signs of fading.

I am having issues with my blush as well. It stops up in the tube or else too much comes out after having squeezed it for to long. It’s also just not a great product. It lays down too fast and then wears right off. If we have to use such a tiny amount do we then get the purported skin benefit? I have also been unsuccessful at getting a return going. Lots of “we would be happy to return it”. Then error messages on the website. Anyone else? This isn’t the Lisa Eldridge famed customer service I am used to. I’d sell it on Mercari . But I don’t want anyone getting my duds.

I’m having trouble getting all 3 blushes out of the tube, like I have to squeeze HARD just to get a pinpoint amount out (luckily that’s all I need but still). I messaged them today to mention the issue and to ask that they take into consideration those of us with strength/mobility issues in the future. They responded almost immediately and issued a refund. That’s so weird you’re not having any luck. So far the two times I’ve contacted them they have been great.

You may want to try commenting on one of her social media channels if you haven’t done that! I know her team monitors that pretty closely, so if you just tried reaching out through her website and haven’t had success, this may be the way to go. Good luck!

Thanks for this review. I am having the same issues. I was wondering if it was just the product I got after reading other colours were thinner/watery. This is definitely quite thick. It requires pretty significant squeezing to get product out and when it does dispense, it is very thick. Having said that, the colour doesn’t wear off on me, so that’s good, and it’s a very pretty shade. But they might want to rethink the packaging.
