Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow (Blush) ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a brightened, coral-orange with warm undertones and a soft, golden shimmer-sheen finish. Surratt Beauty Ponceau (P, $32.00) is brighter, pinker. Guerlain Coral Blush (LE) is pinker. Divergent Obscure Coral (LE) is lighter. Make Up For Ever #410 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is a cream product, less shimmery. Clinique Ginger Pop (01) (P, $21.00) is very similar. Illamasqua Sleek (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, more muted. MAC Passion for Colour (LE, $20.00) is lighter, less shimmery. Edward Bess Secret Affair (P, $43.00) is lighter. MAC Fleet Fast (LE, $21.00) is more muted, pinker. Dior Coral Glow Blush (LE) is less shimmery. Burberry Blossom (P, $42.00) is cooler-toned. Bobbi Brown Coral (P, $25.00) is a little lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It’s a very intensely pigmented blush with a soft, creamy, buttery texture that goes on on smoothly and evenly. The finish has a luminous sheen–not shimmery or frosty–so it looks glowing on the skin. The creamier texture makes it really easy to blend on the skin so it doesn’t look splotchy, and it is forgiving, despite the rich color payoff. You can blend it out for sheerer color without a lot of work, though you’ll certainly want to start with a light to moderate hand. On me, the color lasted for eight and a half hours before fading.

I love electric purple and Neon Pink!

I am thinking of getting the Anniversary set. Still contemplating though, There are too many other things I want this month. My September’s big, fat glossy magazine subscriptions creates such an extensive shopping list for me every year! 🙂

I like the good grades MUFE shadows gets 🙂 I’m sure I’ll be picking some of them up later in the fall. I like how good these performs as blushes, making them quite versitale. I’d wear it as an eyeshadow mostl though, I think.
