Stila Make Me Blush Review, Swatches, Photos
As far as I’m concerned Stila Make Me Blush is the hottest and cheapest product of the season! At $14 this sweet little blush has it all. Think cute heart design, think inexpensive price tag, think pigmented formula, think brilliance on a stick.
Yup, this blusher has it all! Plus I’m hearing tales of sell outs on both Sephora and Stila’s website eep! Since writing about it a week or so ago it’s since disappeared but no worries, it’s back in stock now!
I feel a Muse Approved coming on!
A multi-color blush inspired by Valentine’s Day Conversation Hearts.
Stila dubs this a subtle blush that can be built up, I call it crazy pigmented upon contact. Whoa! Missed out on MAC Stereo Rose? Snag yourself some Stila Make Me Blush and you’ll be a happy girl indeed. Without a doubt you’re looking at some intense color pay off here so have a light hand and if your skin leans towards the realms of olive, tan, or darker, well you too, can glow beautiful with this one!
The packaging is darling with cute conversation hearts decorating the powder. The design runs fairly deep and it seems like it’ll last through a few swipes. It comes in a round black plastic package which isn’t particularly glamorous but you’ll be blinded by the powder too much to take notice.
It does contain a healthy golden overspray with interlocking hearts that feature gold, bright orange-y coral, and graduating shades of medium and paler peach. First swipe, be aware, the overspray creates an INTENSE metallic finish on cheeks which isn’t necessarily pretty so you may want to dab off the gold prior to using the powder. I mistakenly tapped my brush into the blush and proceeded to pick up way too much gold, swirled it on my cheeks, and noticed that Bozo the Clown was staring back at me when I looked in the mirror. Ha! So be careful during application! Even after the overspray is gone you’ll notice that the powder is heavily pigmented so tap the blush gently and remove excess by tapping against your wrist. Proceed to tap onto your cheeks gently for the best results because it is easy to over do it.

The finish starts off metallic thanks to the gold and goes through a bit of a shimmer phase however after a few uses I imagine you’ll get more of a velvety look sans the shimmer, metallic, and sparkle.
The shade quite reminds me of Stereo Rose but with way more pop, way more sizzle, and way more vibrancy. As of now I’m calling it one of the most pigmented blushes in my stash and believe me I have ALOT of blushes around these parts so that’s saying something.
I feel like purchasing a back up at this price as it’s a mere $14 and something that will literally last ages thanks to the pigmented formula which you need very little of for a glowing look. It’s really special and really unique in my opinion and just quite stunning overall.
The finish comes across a vibrant shade of orange-y coral and just glows on my cheeks.
Very fair skin might experience a few issues with application since the color is really bold. I suggest trying a bushier brush for application and tap gently onto your skin for the lightest of finishes!
- Anyone who loves bold, vibrant shades of blush!
- Those look look fabulous in warm shades of orange, coral, and peach!
- Those with olive or darker skin tones (this will pop on darker skin).
- Those who adore cute packaging!
- Those who aren’t keen on terribly bold blusher!
- Those with fairer skin (be aware as this is VERY pigmented and can easily be over done).
- Anyone with a heavy hand (gently does the trick so if you have a heavy hand be careful during application).
This is turning into one of my favorite purchases of the Spring season. It was quite a surprise and too gorgeous not to indulge in. The shade is very me as I love coral shades of blush. If you’re wanting you can easily multitask the blush as an eyeshadow as well! The shade has a wicked bold finish that’s sure to please those who like to make a statement with their makeup! For me it’s a no brainer must have.
Absolutely lovely and very Muse Approved for purchase!
