Lisa Eldridge Venetian Red Enlivening Blush Review & Swatches

Venetian Red

Lisa Eldridge Venetian Red Enlivening Blush ($34.00 for 0.5 oz.) is a deeper, more muted red with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It allowed the natural finish of my skin to come through but wasn’t dewy.

It had more buildable coverage; per the brand, I used a very small amount, and it yielded semi-sheer coverage, and once blended out, sheer, as the formula had a thinner, more spreadable consistency that wanted to be sheered and spread out. I’d recommend starting off that way and then patting more product on top in the places that you want. The formula worked well over bare skin as well as on top of foundation as it wasn’t prone to moving it around. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly 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’m loving the lovely cranberry tone to this red blush! The arm swatches look promising, but looking at the cheek application, I’m wondering if it would work on those of us with medium or deeper skintones?

YouTuber kinkysweat (about nc42) did a demo about 2 weeks about, with time stamps.

What I love about YouTube is that everyone I follow idolizes Temptalia! 🤣🤣
