It’s about time Too Faced finally revamped its blush collection because it was kinda lacking dontcha think? Now I’m waiting on Urban Decay to attack their blush catalog because they have the potential to create some killer blushes in my opinion……!
It’s been a while since Too Faced had introduced a blush to their general catalog so I was quite happy to see the new Full Bloom Ultra Flush Powder Blushes for Summer 2011.
Let’s take a look!
This blooming blush that gives a burst of sheer and luminous color.
I’m always looking for the perfect shade of luminous blush but not one that will look too frosty, too glowy, or to sparkly. Sadly, the formula seems to be rare because I always come across great ones but they end up looking a bit too frosty or they have too much glow which makes my fuller face look terrible or they are loaded down with sparkle. Too Faced Full Bloom Blush nails the luminous formula down perfectly and created a beautiful blush that makes your face look bright, awake, and gives a glowing from within finish!
I picked up two of the three shades they have available. I admit I’m a bit rant-y they don’t have more colors to choose from. I got Who’s Your Poppy? and Sweet Pink. Sweet Pink is a really sheer true pink sheen and Who’s Your Poppy? is a close to NARS Orgasm shade of peachy pink.
I highly suggest grabbing up Who’s Your Poppy? if you either loved Orgasm or felt like Orgasm just didn’t look right on you. It’s a given you’ll love this shade if you like Orgasm as it’s a perfectly natural shade of peach with hints of pink. I think if you weren’t in love with Orgasm you might want to check this shade out as well since it has more pop to it and the formula proves looser and not as hard packed as the NARS blush which allows it to be built up easily for more color pay off. The shade gives a gorgeous glowing sheen and really lights up my face when I wear it. Although both blushes have a fair bit of sparkle in the mix it comes across as more of a subtle sheen that gives a very glow-y finish as if you’re lit from within….It’s a first kiss glow or one of excitement if you will!
The formula on the blushes is silky and blends very easily with a very good wear time. I rarely discuss wear time on powder blushes as it will vary depending on weather conditions, how you prepped, etc…but it does deserve to be mentioned these seem to have some great staying powder and I can get through a work day and into a night of play without having to worry about a touch up.
I will say….
Sweet Pink was an ickle disappointing and is very sheer. I tried building up with a kabuki and buffing color in but it still applied with very little color pay off so it might be best suited to those with very fair skin. I’d avoid it if you your medium fair, tanned, or olive…stick with Who’s Your Poppy? as that has quite decent sheer to medium pigmentation that builds easily.
- Those who have wanted new blushes from Too Faced (these fit the bill perfectly).
- Those who love shades like NARS Orgasm (Who’s Your Poppy? is a brilliant shade of peachy pink for Summer).
- Those looking for a lightweight blush that gives your face a beautiful glow and wears long.
- Those who want a variety of shades to choose from (with three shades available, these are sorely lacking variety).
Overall, Who’s Your Poppy? really won me over plus I really enjoyed the overall formula and performance on these. Although Sweet Pink proved very sheer I was still quite impressed with how long these wore, how easily they blended, and the beautiful glow they gave my face when I was wearing them. I do highly suggest swatching them and having a play your next trip to Sephora as the blushes proved quite good and deserved a Muse Approval for purchase!
I’m always looking for that perfect glow without looking too made up and Too Faced Full Bloom had the ability to not only make my face glow but also brightened it up and made me look more awake and fresh….exactly the kind of Summer blush that was needed in my beauty arsenal.
