E.L.F. Beautifully Bare Blush Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Beautifully Bare Blush

E.L.F. Beautifully Bare Blush ($4) is a new Summer 2015 cream blush that launched with the E.L.F. Beautifully Bare Collection in two shade selections.

It’s unclear if these are permanent or limited edition but since E.L.F. rarely introduced limited edition products I’d say it was safe to say these are permanent. I’m sad they only launched in two shade as I quite like the formula so hopefully in the future we’ll see more from this little pot blush!

Let’s take a look!


MAC Crisp Whites Powder Blush Review & Swatches

MAC Crisp Whites Blush

MAC Crisp Whites Blush ($24.50) is one of two new, limited edition MAC Blush shades that launched with the MAC Wash & Dry Summer 2015 Makeup Collection.

Earlier this month I was talking about how the lipstick index seemed to be taking a nose dive and how makeup collections and beauty releases seem a little slower and I feel like the MAC Summer 2015 Collection is testimony to that. This is such a tiny release for Summer! Typically MAC releases Summer Collections in two parts because they are rather large. Wash & Dry is a really tiny collection. No worries, I’m sure we have plenty to look forward to from MAC this Summer including their Nordstrom Anniversary Exclusive Collection but still I sure do find it unusual for them to release merely two blushes for Summer.

None the less here’s some thoughts on the MAC Crisp Whites Powder Blush!

Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Review & Swatches

Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Blushes

Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Blush ($8) released in an array of gorgeous shades earlier this Spring and as I love of blushes I knew I had to try these. Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Blush at a glance appears very innovative just like Colourpop’s incredible line of eyeshadows however, after trying them they did quite remind me of another formula (more on that in a bit!).

The appealing aspect of Colourpop Super Shock Cheek and well, all of Colourpop’s offerings is the very inexpensive price tag of a mere $8 each for 0.15 oz. I mean pigmentation, an incredible formula, and a cheap price tag? Yes, please. I don’t know about you but discovering indie brands like Colourpop is equivalent to winning a small lotto! They have great packaging, a stream of steady releases, outrageous and tamer shades of color, and great prices! It’s a brand that sets standards for indie makeup.

Illamasqua Gel Sculpt & Gel Color Review & Swatches

Illamasqua Gel Sculpt & Gel

Illamasqua Gel Sculpt & Gel Color ($37) are a new solid, translucent blush stick with a light, cooling formula that creates the illusion of perfect sculpted cheeks with a gentle flush of color.

I love the idea behind Gel Sculpt & Gel Color Sticks! It’s like contouring for klutzy people like 101. The idea is that the color visually sculpts cheeks so they look lifted and more defined. No tricky powders, no special contouring brushes, just a chubby blush stick and a little blending and apparently I’ll have a more lifted cheek look!

Nifty yes?
