Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush Review & Swatches
Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush ($28) launched earlier this Spring in a range of sixteen shades. I think these are easily overlooked since Estee Lauder is written off as a more “mature” or “older” brand.
I admit even I have dubbed it “grandma” makeup. But honestly, since creative director, Tom Pecheux, has joined the brand I feel like new life has been breath into many of the collections launched.
I have a hardcore lemming for Tom Ford Blushes however, I’m unsure if I’m ready to take the near $60 plunge to own one of these wonderful creations.
I must say that Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush has cured some of those lemmings. These are an affordable, luxury blush that’s well worth checking out. I have a feeling once you tried one you’ll want to grab up all the shades like me.
Being a huge supporter and fan of Pure Color Lipgloss it doesn’t surprise me too much that I adore Pure Color Blush. I suffered the same symptoms I had when I hauled my first Pure Color Gloss when I indulged in one of these blushes. Simply put, it was instant love and I wanted to hurry back to the store and grab up all the available shades.
Housed in Estee Lauder’s traditional gold packaging these blushes are .24 oz in size for $28 each. I think the $28 price tag, for blush, is a little intimdating. But if you’re already indulging in a NARS Blush this is a good deal bigger for around the same price (NARS Blush are 0.16 oz).
Now Tom Ford’s Blushes are $55 and 0.28 oz in size so you are getting a little more for your money there but I must say at $27 cheaper I feel a little happier indulging in Estee Lauder’s version as I can indulge in nearly two shades for the price of one.
I haven’t tried Tom Ford’s version mind you so I can’t compare the two but I will say Estee Lauder has outdid themselves on the formula. This a very luxurious blush with full color pay off and a soft, silky formula that blends easily and flawlessly.
The color I choose, Pink Kiss, is a peachy pink. Obviously I picked it because I love NARS Orgasm. It does have a good deal more pink to it than Orgasm and not as much golden peach.
I did a very light layer in my photo below as it does have an intense color pay off with a heavier hand.
Estee Lauder has successfully captured the essence of a truly luxurious blush in a generous size with an affordable price tag compared to many other higher end brands. I really liked this blush and I look forward to indulging in more shades.
