Make Up For Ever #515 HD BlushMake Up For Ever #515 HD Blush ($26.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as “tangerine.” It’s a brightened, medium orange with warm, red undertones and a satin finish. YSL Corail Affranchi (07) (P, $40.00) is more muted. YSL Orange Fougueux (04) (P, $40.00) is redder. Maybelline Coral Burst (LE, $5.99) is powder. NARS Taj Mahal (P, $29.00) is lighter, shimmery, powder. NARS Rotonde (LE, $41.00) is lighter, powder, matte. MAC Optimistic Orange (LE, $21.00) is redder. Inglot #45 Face Blush (P, $10.00) is powder. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The HD Blush formula is a soft, creamy, lightweight, and extremely blendable. You need that blendability because it is also a highly pigmented formula, but it can easily be applied with a light hand for sheer color or built up for true-to-pan color. The texture feels creamy initially but dries down to a powder as you apply and blend it into the skin, but the powder dry down is still blendable, so you never feel like you have to hurry. #515 wore well for nine hours on me before starting to fade slightly. This is the last shade I had to review, and you can read all my past reviews for other shades here.

After some recent bad experiences with pink colored blushes, I’ve been super attracted to peach or orange ones! I think I’m definitely going to have to check this one out to see if it looks nice on me. Thanks for the review and swatch, I love it!

This is such hot vibrant orange! Looks amazing on you! I go for a more “natural” look for cheeks.. so orange isn’t something I’d pick!

The colour is a bit “out there” for me but I agree – the formula of this HD blush range is absolute perfection – MUFE really nailed it and I LOVE the colour range 🙂

I love that you used such a warm toned blusher with a cool toned lipstick. Looks lovely.I don’t think I’d even look twice at a blusher so orangey. You just showed I should.

I’m very impressed with MUFE cream blushes!! Makes for a great starter cream blush for someone just getting into makeup as its perfectly goof proof. I’m very happy with the colors I have now but from seeing this shade in action now I really want it….and its completely sold out in my city.

Me too! It’s such a fab formula. Really easy to use, great quality, and not too pricey (relative to other options that are similar, e.g. Chanel and Illamasqua).

I just got this color about a week ago and I love it. It’s really great for ladies with darker skin tones . I like it more than Taj Mahal because it doesn’t have shimmer in it.

Whoa, this is DYNAMITE! I can’t conceive of a universe in which I could make it work on my cool vampire skin, but a secret part of me wants to try. Or maybe just own the thing and stare into its orange awesomeness… 😀

Whoa! I can see why this got an A+, it looks so amazing! I’ll wear pretty much any blush colour in existence; however to my unending frustration, orange just doesn’t suit me. Looks super slamming on you though 🙂

I actually went so far as to buy Nars Gina, which I liked in theory, but every time I put it on I’m like “nope” and I have to put a bit of a different colour blush over top. It just looks a little *too* unnatural on me, I guess!

That’s a really cool colour! I love that products that are more “out there” in colour exist. You prove that even a pretty unnatural colour like orange for the cheeks (who blushes orange?) can look great! 🙂

Wow!! Not my kind of colour, but it’s great to see such an ORANGE orange from a pro-oriented brand! 🙂
