Make Up For Ever #310 HD Blush ($26.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “rosewood.” It’s a medium, muted rosy pink with a soft, satiny sheen. It is slightly warm-toned, but it doesn’t turn coral or look reddish. Tarte Fearless (P, $26.00) is brighter, powder. theBalm Houndstooth (P, $22.00) is slightly more plum, powder. NYX Peach (P, $5.00) is brighter, powder. NYX Apricot (P, $15.00) is warmer, powder. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

I continue to be impressed by the new HD Blush formula, and I’m just so pleased that the shades have performed consistently well. It’s always frustrating when a formula is inconsistent, as you never know whether a new shade will be a hit or miss, but with this range, every shade has been quite good. #310 is no exception! It had excellent, rich color payoff that can be as bold or as subtle as you’d like. The formula itself is lightly creamy but sets and dries down to a powder-like texture after twenty to thirty seconds, but what’s nice is that the powder-like texture is blendable like you’d expect a powder blush to be. It’s just so easy to apply, blend, and then it wears well–a solid nine hours with this particular shade.

I looked at all these blushes “in store” (didn’t actually swatch or try any of them, though) and didn’t find a colour that called out to me enough to swatch on my hand (could be the crummy Sephora lighting but still….) I may need to go back “bare faced” (scary prospect) and try these on my face, though, since the formula is so excellent going by all you’ve said. But what grabbed me in this review is the gorgeousness of that Sephora lipstick. I’ll certainly need to look for that next time!

Wow, that looks so very pretty! I really enjoy using cream blushes. Looks adorable on you. I don’t have any MUFE so maybe this could be my first item…

These blushes have become my favorites so fast. I almost use nothing else anymore. They go on great, last, and I love that they’re small and compact and can be applied with fingers (although I prefer a stippling brush) for travel or days I need to touch up to go out after work (so much smaller than a Nars multiple!). I have three colors and want more! I’ll have to check this one out – it’s so pretty!

ps. I wonder if MUFE will come out with shimmery versions at some point. That would mean I basically don’t need any other blush ever! (not that that will stop me)

With higher end blushes being so expensive, may I ask, what are your favorite brands for color payoff and longevity? I have a few MAC blushes, I just recently got into the whole blush thing lol. Thanks!

Christine Avatar

Hi Lyss!

Are you looking for powder or cream?

For powder blush, my favorite of all-time is Tom Ford’s, but that’s, you know, $$$! Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes are nice if you like a subtle blusher, and you won’t need all the shades in that range by any means. Illamasqua makes nice matte blushes. For cream blushes, I like Chanel’s, Make Up For Ever’s, and Illamasqua’s Velvet.

I just bought this during the last Sephora 15% VIB sale! So glad it got an A+ & your recommendation! I do love the shade & it really lasts all day, even on my oily skin type.
What brush did you use to apply here? I always find your cream blush is on point!

Christine, Is Mac 159 your favorite to apply cream blushes? Is there one by Hakuhodo (or any other brand) that you like as well? I seem to find the Hakuhodo to be a bit softer/higher quality for the price than Mac’s. I’m looking to find a nice ‘do it all’ brush for my cream blushes.

Also, do you have any plans to review the Wayne Goss collection of brushes?

A lovely everyday flush!! sometimes i find colours that come out during the warmer months are a tad too warm or shimmery (i know this isn’t necessarily a summer item). You are just showing us fantastic products and shades lately! Oh, stupid tiny budget lol!

This is a gorgeous color on you! Much less brown than I was expecting, I’ll have to check this one out next time I visit Sephora.

I have several shades from this collection and they definitely perform great as far as wear time, ease of application and pigmentation. I hope they release new shades in the future.

I am so in love with the formula and wear of these blushes! I had to limit myself to only 4 colors when at IMATS NY last month but I will definitely be getting more. I love how blendable they are and how comfortable they feel on the skin. I opted for 315 over 310 but I will be adding that one to the collection too lol

Kate Avatar

I love this formula as well. It isn’t as good as Chanel’s but there’s way more options. I have #210 and #410 and it looks like I am getting this one next! My wallet thanks you.
