Latest Obsession: IsaDora Mineral Blush Powder Review and Swatches

Although difficult to work with, I still adore loose mineral blushes. Bare Escentuals has SO many vibrant shades that I simply can’t say no to, I also pretty much dig all over the more bolder shades Aromaleigh and Medusa Cosmetics offers as well!

On a whim I purchased some IsaDora Mineral Blush Powder and now I’m totally obsessed with it.

Likey!

Jump!


IsaDora Mineral Blush Powder is a 100% mineral formula with a high color pay off available in eight shades!


I got this in the shade Iced Candy which is a warm sunny bronze rose. Could be the color, could be the formula but I’m absolutely delighted with it.

The thing I liked most about the formula was how subtly it applies. You can build up color very slowly or do a quick dash and go without every over doing your look. The color applies naturally, beautifully, and very subtly leaving behind a flush of healthy color behind it as if you’re naturally blushing or in the case of Iced Candy it gives more of a sunny glow.

The actual blush is a typical mineral blush which is loose and housed in a jar with sifter. I find it best to tap a little into the lid, swirl, and dab it onto the apples of your cheeks. It does have a very slight shimmer but it blends easily out and doesn’t leave behind any drama of shimmer of glitter on your face or cheeks. The color is pigmented but not an outrageous color pay off more of a build up of color which can be worn very sheer or very loud depending on how heavy you are with your hand. Of course, if you go extra hard with it, you’ll find you still end up with a very natural look, this, in my opinion, being what makes the blush such a joy to work with!

Iced Candy gave my cheeks a rosy, sunny flush of color. Quite warm and lovely!


Some may find the packaging cumbersome to work with as loose powder blush can be mess. I don’t mind in the least but it could prove messy during application.

Anyone who wants a huge selection of colors may be disappointed, I know I was, as these only have eight shades to choose from!

  • Anyone seeking a flush of warm, rosy blush!
  • Anyone who likes mineral blushes!
  • Anyone who has a bit of a heavy hand with blush application (go heavy, you can’t get this wrong!).
  • Anyone who wants more for less (this has 3g of product for $16 where as BE blushes are priced at $18 and have 2.8g of product).

  • Anyone who finds it difficult to work with loose powder blush!


Overall, IsaDora Mineral Blush Powder are proving to be something that I want to explore more of. Hate they only have 8 shades to choose from but damn I’ll have a good time trying them all out in the future I’m sure. Quite a nice loose mineral blush particularly this shade I reviewed for you as it makes an ideal warm color for Summer. Nice formula, nice color, mmm loves it!

Anyone try IsaDora Mineral Blush Powder?

    I have an IsaDora kabuki brush that I picked up for $11 from Walgreens, and while that’s been my only experience with their mineral line I’ve got to recommend it. It’s lasted me 4 years and it’s still in great condition (despite a little fallout after it gets a serious washing) super-soft and blends face powder perfectly.
