Where are my coral blush fiends?

Rock & Republic Call Me Blush ($40.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a gorgeous shade of shimmering pinky-coral with peach shimmer-sheen.  It’s really a ringer for Lancome’s Mandarin Sky (which I also loved), but more-sheen-than-shimmer (and not quite as pink) NARS Orgasm.  I’m obsessed. OBSESSED. with coral blushes, whether they’re pink-coral, peach-coral, or orange-coral, I’m all over them. 

Call Me is beautiful on both cooler and warmer skin tones–it doesn’t have strong orange undertones, so it can work just as nicely on those with pink undertones as those with yellow or olive undertones.   It is, obviously, most complimentary on warmer complexions, though.  The shimmer is incredibly fine and appears as a soft glowy sheen on cheeks.

It’s a very pigmented, smooth textured powder blush; surprisingly impressive for a brand that’s been pulled from all the counters I know of.  Even more impressive given that this brand regularly shows up on discount sites at 50% off.  It’s well worth the $40 price tag, since it is a high-end/luxury line, but the compact itself is quite large–and not just the physical compact, but the product inside weighs in at an impressive 0.32 oz. (most blushes are between 0.15 and 0.21 oz.).  Obviously, an incredible deal at $20 (which is how I got mine).

This is the one I have! I love it <3

Could you possibly put up a swatch of this next to Orgasm? A lot of people say it's similar but it'd be nice to see comparison pics.

how do you compare it with orgasm? heard some youtube gurus saying that this can be an alternative for orgasm but per your swatch, i’m not seeing any pink undertones. orgasm is kinda peachy pink right?

Sadly, not really available anymore 🙁 Hasn’t been restocked on the R&R website in weeks, and the brand doesn’t seem to be selling anywhere else, which is a real bummer! I’m LOVING it. I guess I will have to make do with Springsheen (and eventually pick up Mandarin Sky).

Yeah, I’ve been checking every few days! I guess I can hope. Maybe I will call them and see if they expect it to come back. I’m annoyed because I ordered from there and *could* have gotten it, but was thinking “Oh I have enough that’s similar.” But I don’t, I never have enough of this color 😛 Drama Queen lipgloss was a great choice though. Same kind of color.

This must be the most beautiful blush I have seen in a long, long time. Stunning. Obviously not available in South Africa, but if I ever come across it, I will fork out the money and buy it.

Omg!! That blush is gorgeous. But I’m afraid on me it would not show well or be chalky, being of a darker complexion [NC 45ish.]

And your lipstick/gloss looks amazing. What is it D: ?

oo very pretty! i think R&R may still have a 40% off sale going on for their makeup. If i’m lying, i’m sorry!

also, what lipstick/lipgloss combo are you wearing? I LOVE IT


Such a lovely coral blush!!! I’m addictive to blush that are peachy or coral. What discount site did you get your blush from?
Oh btw! I like your neutral eye with red lip look! Very glamour

Ooooo I love it on you! For some reason it’s much more of a light pink on me… wish it looked that corally…. but no worries since I still love it!! Especially the soft golden sheen 🙂

I love this blush, too! Now it is almost impossible to get off of R&R site or all of those beauty sales sites. I managed to get it off of the last Hautelook sale, but it usually sells out in the first minute of the sale!

soooo pretty! i’m still in love with manderin sky btw. LOVE it! love it love it love it! i’ve actually kind of been grooving on a few lancome products lately, which isn’t really like me. lol. blushes and their metallic finish eyeshadows. i bought 2 more the other day. i just can’t stop! there’s a pink eyeshadow (makeover? i think) that is SO beautiful on the cheeks…

Wow $20 for that much is a good deal…but $40 is the non discounted price? Hmm I was also wondering why they were taken away from counters. 🙂

Besides that it really is a beautiful color.

I was lucky enough (unbelievable to me) to be able to get this blush from R&R. I also have 3 others, but this one is my favorite…smooth, silky, gorgeous color.

I really want this blush but it hasn’t showed up on the R&R website in weeks. I’ve been stalking the website everyday to check out the restock situation and they keep. Restocking every color except Call Me. I’d even pay regular price for it but there are no stores that carry the R&R line either.

no explanation 🙁 if only they knew how many people looove this blush! i have been searching for something comparable, but nothing has that “sheen” that i love about this, and the perfect peachy-pink balance.

Very pretty color. I think R&R had a sale on Hautelook a several weeks ago. I should’ve picked up a few for myself. I’ve heard many great reviews about them. I really like how much product they give you too.

I still have this one new in the box, along with all the other R&R blushes when they went on clearance on Hautelook last year.

After seeing how gorgeous this looks on you, I will be finally cracking open these round boxes to play with this baby.

Looks gorgeous on you. I too love coral blushes. I’ve been using NARA Orgasm for awhile now but I was @ the MAC store the other day and bought Sincere. It looked so pretty on the sales associate. Just wanted to know your thoughts on this matte blush. Thanks, Christine.

Gorgeous color 🙂 How similar is it to NARS Deep Throat? I know you say that Deep Throat is a pinker version of Orgasm so just wanted to know if I could skip Call Me since I already have Deep Throat? Thanks!

A little more orange, haha. It’s probably in-between the two — it is also finer, more sheen less shimmer kind of finish. You could probably skip it 😉 Unless you are a coral fiend, of course….

I love this color! Typically, I wouldn’t think twice about paying $40 for a blush but this would have been my exception. I also contacted R&R to let them know how much this blush will be missed. Fingers crossed they will decide to restock it!

I am so incredibly jealous you have this! NARS Orgasm is more shimmer than pigment so it doesn’t work for me and I was looking forward to this, unfortunately R&R said it wouldn’t carry this shade anymore =(. I don’t understand why. My only hope is some sort of blog sale or swap, but not that many people had it in the first place.

I got my hands on it in a swap. It’s so pretty and it’s pinker than Orgasm on my NW43 skin, but that might have something to do with the fact that Orgasm barely shows up on my skin

Christine, do you know where I can purchase Rock and Republic blush? Hautelook and Rock and Republic no longer have it. Thanks !
