Surratt Beauty Halo Artistique Blush ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, golden yellow with warm undertones and a frosted, sparkling sheen. Becca Champagne Gold (LE, $38.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Giorgio Armani No. 04 (P, $62.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). NARS Jubilation (Left) (PiP, ) is more shimmery, darker, more muted (85% similar). L'Oreal Golden (P, $12.99) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Artistique Blush formula is supposed to have a “naturally glowing finish.” The formula is consistent: the blushes have a very soft, almost cream-like powder texture that blends out effortlessly to a luminous sheen with semi-opaque to opaque coverage (that is easily applied more sheerly or layered for true-to-pan color) and good wear (eight to nine hours). Halo had good color payoff with a soft, silky-smooth consistency that blended out beautifully on the skin to produce a moderate glow. Against my warmer tones, it looked more like a yellowed orange than pure yellow. This particular shade had more noticeable sparkly bits on the skin than past shades I’ve tried, which didn’t emphasize pores or anything like that, but the finish may be “too much” depending on one’s preferences. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

A note on packaging: Surratt’s range comes in lightweight plastic pans, which aren’t ideal for long-term use (particularly if traveling or putting in a makeup bag), as his products are designed to be put into custom palette solutions. Personally, I put magnets on the back of each and keep them in freestyle palettes (like a Z-Palette) as it is more economical.

The review is only for Halo, the color on the cheek facing you in the photo. When I photograph blushes, I wear one on each side to avoid having to remove too many shades from my cheeks back-to-back (I can only remove about three times before my skin pays for it the next day).

I actually really like it on you. I’m not sure how it would look on me, but I kind of like the idea of rocking a bright yellow on the cheeks.

Wow, this looks gorgeous on you! Hmmmm, I never thought of a yellow blush. I already have yellow undertones, but if I mix with an orange blush, this could be quite pretty. And I’m always trying to find bronzers and highlighters with a yellow gold tint (most run warm brown or orange), was wondering if I could mix with this to get the look, but I just noticed there’s less product. I have a Surratt Blush in La Vie En Rose, and the back of mine says .20 oz, so it looks like they shrank it to .14 (30% less) but kept the $32 price the same!

I bet it would be great for mixing, actually! I didn’t realize the size had changed… that is odd, since physically they are the same size!

Yellow is not a shade I’d expect to look particularly good as a blush but it works beautifully! At least on someone with a warm skintone.

I am digging this colour! It’s like nothing I’ve seen before. Guess I need to try a more affordable satin-y cream yellow eyeshadow as a blush in the future because too broke for Surratt 😛

On me, I think this could make for an interesting, but not as freaky as it would sound, soft highlighter! Applied very lightly with a fan brush on just my cheekbones and high points, this *could* possibly work…I think?

The blush looks so gorgeous on you Christine! It reminds me of the sun. I don’t know if I could pull it off/would like how it looks on me, but it may have to go on my (ever growing) wish list!

I really like this, interesting colour for a blush. It works well on your cheeks, I wonder what it would look like on cooler toned skin like mine. It looks subtler on than it looks in the pan.

This would be a liver transplant double stat against my skin. But who knows.. I’ve surprised myself by finding a yellow corrector works well for specific brightening in the deeper trough of an inner corner of my eyes. All hell subsequently broke loose in my brain and I realized how closed minded I can be sometimes without trying.

Guess I’ll just use a darker shade beneath or better still, I’ll convert it to highlighter that’s if I ever lay my hands on it

I love this color, think it’s totally interesting, but cannot think how I would use it on myself, with my very cool undertones it would be quite dramatic; even for eye shadow, I need a cooler yellow. But it’s beautiful!
