Too Faced Love Flush Blush or should I say Too Faced Love Flush Long-Lasting 16-Hour Blush? Is a new six shade permanent selection of blush that Too Faced recently released with their Fall 2015 Collection.
Personally, I feel like blush is a little lacking in the Too Faced world. They have their Full Bloom Powder Blush in a few shades, and also the very popular Sweethearts Blush (which for me is more of a highlighter than a blush), and Full Bloom Cream Blush….ok, so three different types of blush (four if you count the new Too Faced Love Flush Blush) but it just always felt like much of the brand’s emphasis has been placed on eyeshadow palettes and bronzer (they are DAMN proud of their many, many, many, many bronzer formulas, finishes, and textures).
I dunno what it is but I never felt blush was something that Too Faced excelled at or even concentrated on so I am quite happy they launched these new shades of Love Flush Long-Lasting Blush. Not only am I excited about a blush launch but I thought they did up their packaging very cute. Most makeup fan girls and guys are saying the cute heart shaped compacts look like Polly Pocket! And it’s true! They do kinda resemble the toy! They are adorable and it’s one of the appealing aspects of the blush for me as hey, I’m a packaging h0r!
Let’s take a look!
Too Faced Love Flush Long-Lasting Blush ($26) are getting some rave reviews across the board. I purchased four of the six shades from hsn.com as I had a coupon plus HSN had these before anyone else which was a plus. The formula promises a long wear, fade-proof, smudge-proof formula for up to 16 hours of wear. Honestly, if you’re looking for long wearing blush you likely already have it in your stash as the Tarte Amazonian Blushes are the best of the best when it comes to incredibly long wearing. In some ways, you’ll find that the new Too Faced Love Flush Blush looks surprisingly similar to Tarte’s formula but the wear and texture are considerably different.
As I mentioned above each blush is housed in a cute little heart shaped compact with a full size mirror. The blushes have a cute bunny, floral imprint which does smudge up and likely will disappear after a few uses. Sadness but cute while it lasted.
I actually thought these would be luminous or glow-y for some reason but I actually find the finish kind of flat. Some of the shades, like Justify My Love, has tiny particles of sparkle but it apply more matte on my cheeks. The finish is satin but it does look kinda matte to me and as I said a bit flat. They are very pigment rich and buttery in texture but they blended out a little patchy on my cheeks. They are fairly powdery but not chalky or dry. I did not get 16 hours of wear from them! At first application they are intense but they lose some of that intensity at the five hour mark. I’d say I can get about eight hours of wear on my drier cheeks if I’m lucky but in most cases it was about seven due to the heat/Summer.

I dunno what it was exactly but I don’t really like these. When I wear blush I like it to brighten up my entire face and give my complexion a boost of a healthy flush! I didn’t feel I got that from this formula. It felt a little flat. Between the shorter wear and the powdery formula I wasn’t entire impressed.
I’ll stick to my beloved Tarte Amazonian Blush and call it a day.
