Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Radiant Blush Review, Swatches, Photos

Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Radiant Blush is a new goodie that launched recently in the every evolving Beauty Rush Collection.

I kinda squealed a little upon seeing them at VS as I really enjoy the Beauty Rush Collection and just think it’s rather fun for makeup junkies like myself to see new bits and bobs pop up to keep things fresh and lively.

The latest launch is three shades of powder blush for $7 each or the typical 4 for $20 mix and match.

Let’s take a peek at some of the blushes I hauled!

A new powder blush from the Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Collection.

I’m always slightly frustrated that I feel the need to dish out $20 each time I purchase Beauty Rush products as I really want to make them cheaper than they already are ($7 each just seems to expensive for some odd reason or another). But I didn’t mind so much in this case since they had these new blushes and some new glosses too!

Broken down to $5 each these are a rather fab little budget pick or if you just indulge in one at $7 you’re still coming away with a rather nice steal depending on how frugal you are (see my above whine).

Each blush comes in a square plastic compact with a faux mirror border. The packaging is no nonsense, stores easily, and travels well. I like the packaging as the squares tuck into my makeup collection without taking up alot of space yet still manage to be large enough for my blush brush to come away with plenty of color.

The formula is surprisingly silky and smooth. The blush is a finely milled powder with a nice pop of color that can be applied sheer and builds easily up for better color pay off. Although they swatch a bit chalky they still manage to blend easily while looking very natural and pretty.

These are available in three shades, I purchased two of the three. The colors I got were Flutter which is a cool shade of pink and Fresh Love a warmer coral peach. I haven’t it yet seen in person but I was thinking Fresh Love looked alot like the new Stila Custom Color Blush in Coral.

I don’t have a single bad thing to say about these aside from the fact that I’d like to see a wider selection of colors!

  • Anyone looking for a budget blush that can handle a sheer application or can be built up for a more popping finish.
  • Anyone looking for a blush that blends easily with a nice formula that won’t cost a ton of money.
  • Anyone on a budget seeking a nice blush ($7 for one or mix and match any 4 for $20).

  • Those seeking a larger selection and variety of colors (with only three shades to choose from, colors are limited).

I loved these. They are probably the best thing to come along from the Beauty Rush Collection in a while! At $7 I wouldn’t call them budget but if you break them down to the $5 price tag by taking advantage of the 4 for $20 you are getting a nice little steal. The formula offers a nice buildability plus they blend dreamy. If you’re up for a little beauty budgeting and in need of a blush that won’t break the bank but you don’t mind a smaller color range to choose from you might want to check these out.

I likey!

    Muse, you have answered my makeup prayers! I’ve been wanting beauty rush to come out with powder blushes for a long time now and am so pleased that they’re muse approved. 🙂 It doesn’t help that I’m a blush addict- I’ll buy them all.

    • the Muse

    The La Senzas here (kind of a Canadian VS, maybe owned by them, not sure) stopped carrying Beauty Rush stuff like a year ago 🙁 plz bring back for these blushes, kthx

  • Rebecca

    I just saw these on their website. I stopped looking at V.S. makeup awhile ago, but these look good. And cheap! They’d probably be more in the drugstores. They need a nude and a berry shade.

    Got these after I read your review and LOVED THEM!!!
    also thought you would like to know they have been updated and re-released!
    I bought them again! haha.
    Flutter I think has the same color and finish as the original but Fresh love seems to be a little less bright coral, and a little more subtle which I LOVE because it is now more wearable for the rest of the gloomy winter days. I would love to see an updated review from you on the new packaging (ADORABLE) and the updated color/formula?

    Thanks for introducing me to these the first time around!

    • the Muse

      I haven’t seen them in store yet but can’t wait to see ’em ;-D I’m glad you love them ;-D I’ll prob consider a repurchase as well ;-D

  • yelena

    any luck with these as yet?
    I love the color but I find that the original formula has a much better pay off as it lasts all day.
    the new ones I told you about are gone by mid morning 🙁
    i’m currently putting them over BB cream, but maybe i need to add primer to my face to hold on to the blush longer.

    hope u find them soon!
