Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush is the epitome of sweet, cute makeup. This Spring 2013 release is just in time for Valentine’s Day too!
Housed in a sturdy heart shaped cardboard compact this darling little baked blush features three shimmering shades of color for cheeks and face.
Take a look!
This is a $29 blush that features 0.19 oz of product so quite a generous size for the price.
According to Too Faced founder, Jerrod Blandino, Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush is the perfect shade that literally works with every skin tone. Oh Jerrod I love you so but I must say that this won’t work for every skin tone sadly….it was FAR too sheer for me.
Swirls of rose, coral and peach are packed into the pretty heart design. The colors are suppose to work together to create a custom flush or highlight. I would think the flush part would work for super fair/pale skin and the highlight one would work for medium or darker skin tones. Sadly, my medium fair skin got mostly a frosty shimmery glow sans any color.
The blush on a whole has a cool, frosty finish which comes across shimmery. It’s good color pay off on a swatch and the texture is soft, silky and easy to work with however, blending is key to avoid the frostiness. The coral (middle color) is probably the shade that had the densest formula. This didn’t have as soft a finish and appeared harder in the compact. However, this is a good thing as it evens out the frost of the pink and peachier shade (left and right colors in the compact).
Everything comes together as a lighter peachy pink with a shimmery sheen on my swatch. On my face it has a glow-y sheen with some frost or a shimmery finish if I blend correctly.
This one will prove a love for lighter skin tones I imagine however, those with medium complexions or darker might find it lacking in pigment. The fact that it multitasks as a blush come highlighter depending on the tone of your skin might prove nice enough where as others (like myself) might be disappointed it doesn’t actually act as a blush but more as a highlighter.
The smooth finish provided nice wear without emphasizing flaky areas however, the blush itself is powdery and kicks up a fair bit of powder as a brush is applied so do a little tap before applying to face to avoid a less than smooth finish on skin.
Overall, I wish it was a smidge more pigmented so I could use it as a blush. I was hoping for a pink peachy glow but sadly I couldn’t even get it to show up in photos.
Fairer girls, lucky you, you’ll probably look amazing in it.
As for the rest of us, to be used as a highlighter only, don’t expect a ton of color here.
Props for the cute factor though Too Faced that alone made me want to haul it.
