Tarina Tarantino Parasol Dollskin Cheek Blush ($25.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “shimmering bright pink coral.” It’s a pinky-coral with a very subtle golden champagne shimmer. When it’s blended out, you’ll get more of a coral effect out of the hue, but when it’s used more heavily, it turns pinker. It’s pinker and more intense version of Feather, but the two are certainly similar more than they are dissimilar, especially when they’re blended out. It looks slightly pinker but unless you wear it more heavily, the differences are minute. Like Feather, it is also similar to Benefit CORALista (not as pink) and MAC Hipness (not as pink). I would say it is not really a dupe of shades like NARS Orgasm, just because it lacks the golden shimmer/sheen of those types of shades.

It’s a finely-milled powder, so it feels silky smooth to the touch, and it blends easily against the skin so it has more of a natural finish and can easily be buffed or blended if you prefer a lighter blush. This one didn’t have any powderiness, though, which was nice. It doesn’t look too frosted against the skin, though there is a healthy amount of shimmer-sheen in the finish. When I wore this to run errands, it still looked good eight hours later–no fading or movement.

thanks christine, both lipstick and blush looks gorg!! btw, i found a blog that featured a lot of the photos from temptalia, the blog is in spanish. just letting you know, in case they don’t have your permission. cheers

This is a gorgeous color on you! It looks so natural! Next time I’m at Sephora I’m definitely checking this out. I don’t have any coral blushes but I think this might be my first. :]

I have the older version of this (before the package change, back when TT line first came out) and i remember it was touted as an O dupe (or in similar line). do you know if there’s any change in formulation or color between the old and new packaging?

to be honest i liked Parasol tons better than Nars O anywayz, so i honestly wouldn’t have wanted Parasol if it was a dupe lol. it did look diff in pan compared to O, more pink than peach coral i thought.

I don’t know – I don’t think I have the original Parasol! I think it was mostly a packaging change but I’m not 100% sure. It’s much pinker than Orgasm, which has more peach but also a lot of gold sheen πŸ™‚

The blended out swatch appears to be surprisingly close to MAC Stunner blush. At least in application, I’d say the two look very similar on me (I have a very fair, yellow-toned, pink-cheeked, freckled complexion).

So far, they’re all really wearable across complexions. If you prefer lighter color, you’ll find Feather better, but I think the pinkness in Parasol would work beautifully!

Aw, pinky-coral blushes are SO my thing! Once again, living in the UK proved to be a pain in the butt! I’m sure I’d have to forget eating for the next week if I was willing to pay Nordstrom’s shipping fees :'(

pretty πŸ˜€ how weird, i see the name for blush written in romanian on the back :)) guess they have it at the sephora here. bet it’s expensive tho πŸ™
