Editor's Review

Does This Thing Really Work? is a muted, pinky-plum with subtle, cool undertones and gold sparkle that sits over a matte base. The sparkle doesn't bind well with the color itself, so it doesn't tend to stick well to the skin; the few bits that do migrate and move throughout the day or eventually fall off. The texture was smooth and soft, but it was somewhat powdery and looked a little dry on my normal-to-dry skin. It lasted for eight hours (not the 12-hours promised by the formula, though eight hours is similar to wear I get with most blush formulas). Estee Lauder Rebel Rose (P, $34.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Outlaw (P, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Rose (DC, $30.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). KIKO 112 Light Plum (P, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay TMI (DC, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Vogue (LE, $10.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Cruel Intentions (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Petulant (LE, $22.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Cover FX Sweet Mulberry (Left) (PiP, ) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Tarte Fetching (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). NARS Oasis (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Stila Dusty Rose (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Wrapped Candy (P, $27.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). Estee Lauder Alluring Rose (P, $34.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Sand Pink (DC, $30.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Empowering (LE, $29.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Laura Geller Roseberry (P, $28.00) is warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals The Love Letter (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Make Up For Ever #310 HD Blush (DC, $26.00) is warmer (85% similar). Buxom Dolly (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest.
