Makeup Geek Bliss Blush ($9.99 for 0.15 oz. pan; $12.99 for 0.15 oz. compact) is described as a “light tan, light salmon.” It’s a light-medium, peachy coral with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. MAC Corol #1 (LE, $21.00) is lighter. Make Up For Ever #225 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is a cream product. Make Up For Ever #215 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is pinker, cream. Hourglass Diffused Heat (P, $35.00) is pinker. bareMinerals Swoon (LE, $19.00) is pinker. MAC Immortal Flower (LE, $21.00) is a smidgen lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The texture of the blush was incredibly soft, smooth, and lightly buttery. I’ve been most impressed by the consistency of the Makeup Geek blush formula, because it is silky and finely-milled but doesn’t turn powdery. There’s such a fine line between soft and powdery, but they get it right with Bliss. It had good color payoff that was buildable and blendable, so you can get nearly true-to-pan intensity or a sheer wash of color if desired. This shade wore well for almost nine hours on me before starting to show signs of fading along the edges.

It depends on the look you’re going for, I think – I actually love it on my medium skin tone, because it gives noticeable color but is soft enough to wear with even the boldest eyes/lips! πŸ™‚ That’s just my opinion, of course!

I wanted to get this, but wasn’t sure it would show up on my medium skin. It looks beautiful on you, though πŸ˜€ Maybe in a couple of days I’ll be able to brave the website again πŸ˜‰

do you wear same blush on both cheeks? right side looks like bliss but left like lighter pink/violet blush, so im just curious, left looks like too cool and light for me and right like perfect shade πŸ™‚

YAY! I was super excited for this review! I remember how much I’ve been impressed by the swatch of this shade on your first post. I immediately decided to purchase it, but I’ve been looking forward to your full review. TEMPTALIA RECOMMENDS ????!!!!!! So thrilled! There is nothing any reason not to get it soon, today, naturally.

If Immortal Flower leans really pink on you, I’d say this might not work, but if you find it is coral or leans a little peach, you should be good!

How close is this to Benefit’s Georgia, that I thought I’d never use, but was/is WWWAAAAAAYYY down in pan, when d/c’d? I can’t bring myself to use up anything I can’t replace…sign of a true hoarder. Marlena + Co are getting great reviews from you, which means they NAILED it!

Georgia would be a lot lighter – and in general, just a sheerer, softer color all around. Georgia is hard to get to show on my skin tone in comparison.

Georgia turned out to be very versatile….it was so light + sheer that it even could go as all-over face color in the right season. But, get a little tan, or be even a warm medium + away it went. I think it showed up on me best in winter, when my skin is cooler + lighter. It was one of those surprises. Bought it primarily because of a gap in the stash color wheel, then used the hell out of it. Think I was on box 3, when it d/c’d. Now DANDELION reeeally doesn’t show up on me…..

I’m so glad this got your stamp of approval! I was back and forth about this shade because I was a little afraid of the coral looking too orangey. I love how subtle it looks on you. I just have to be careful to not go overboard.

This is a cute shade, but my vampire skin wants something a little deeper/darker, I think. This one might have a bit too much white in the base for me… πŸ™‚
