Make Up For Ever #510 HD Blush ($26.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as “raspberry.” It’s a rich, raspberry red with subtle cool undertones and a satin finish. Chanel Chamade (67) (P, $38.00) is lighter, pinker. Kevyn Aucoin Neolita (P, $37.00) is darker, powder. NYX Desert Rose (P, $5.00) is lighter, powder. MAC Keep It Casual (LE, $20.00) is redder. Chanel Rouge (LE, $43.00) is powder. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

As I mentioned previously, I’m generally a fan of Make Up For Ever, and their newer HD Blush range is one of my favorite cream blush formulas on the market. It feels like a lightweight, thin cream going on but dries down to powder as it is blended into the skin, but it remains blendable even in its “powder” form, which is why it’s so easy to work with. It’s very pigmented, so you can go light or heavy, depending on your preference, though it is forgiving if you’ve used too much. #510 was incredibly pigmented, and it wore well for nine hours before fading but seemed to stain just very slightly (for about an hour and a half after I removed it). You can read my reviews for other shades here.

OOO this one is goooorgeous! I thought it’d be much darker, but swatched and on you it’s really beautiful! I’m trying to hold back on purchasing more cream blushes because I already have a handful, but I might have to take a look at MUFE’s offerings.

This looks so beautiful! But I hesitate. On sephora.com, it says this blush is “formulated with the perfect balance of oils, waxes, and powders”…which is a big “yikes” to me since I have oily skin. But it didn’t feel waxy or oily to you?

I love this blush formula so much! First experience with creams. And I agree that the colour is forgivable even if you apply too much; it blends away so nicely that I can just do that if i’ve applied excess.

It is. I don’t like how sometimes a blush is so pigmented, i apply too much by accident and then the only solution is to wipe/wash it off.

I’m still on the hunt for Blackcurrant 520, but I can’t find it anywhere. I’ll just sit pretty and enjoy this shade for awhile. I always remember how much I love it and why I love it every time I pull it out. You barely need any product to get a great flush!

I was thinking on getting a couple of Nars matte multiple just yo use them on my cheeks. Would you say this is a better product for that purpose?

JJ Avatar

Yes they really are which is why I wish they kept the original and just add the new one to the line.

These are defiantly easier to work with but I loved how intense the original liquids were and some of the colors.

Since it’s so bright, I typically go really neutral with the rest of my face.

The last time I wore it, I paired it with a matte neutral eye (my go-to is a super-subtle smokey eye using the UD Naked Basics Palette – W.O.S. all over the lid, Naked 2 in the crease & Faint in the corner), with Stila Smudge Stick in Damsel along the top lash line, and a little mascara. I skipped the lips (just a lip balm).

I know I’m the odd man out here and no offence, but I don’t care for that shade on you. It seems to clash with the lip color. Maybe that’s it – just my personal preference. Love the lip color though!
