Warm Pink

Smith and Cult Warm Pink Flash Flush Powder Blush ($24.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. The drier consistency made the shimmer seem more frosted when swatched, but the powder seemed to blend and “melt” a bit in practice, which gave it a very luminous sheen that was flattering on my skin. While it was intended to have buildable coverage, it was mostly opaque in a single layer, so a lighter hand was necessary to achieve more buildable coverage. It stayed on nicely for seven hours before showing signs of fading on me.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.07 oz. - $342.86 Per Ounce

The powder blush is supposed to be "weightless" with a "buildable formula and subtle sheer finish." They have a fairly smooth consistency, though they are a little drier and dustier, and blended out without too much effort. The pigmentation ranged from semi-opaque to opaque; it's not a truly buildable formula, though one could use a lighter hand or more feathery brush to pick up less product and get more buildable coverage that way (as is true with most pigmented formulas).

The finish was more luminous and glowing rather than metallic or frosted, so the powder sat well on my skin without emphasizing texture. They lasted between seven and eight hours on me before fading.

Worth noting, they are only 0.07 oz. each, which is quite small for a blush--it's actually the size of some eyeshadows!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Finally one that got above a C rating. There are so many wonderful blush formula’s out there that working with those that get a C rating are just not worth it. This one does look amazing on you and I do like the slightly luminous finish. I love a good luminous blush!
