L’Oreal The Temptress’ Blush Project Runway Super Blendable Blush Review & Photos

L’Oreal’s Project Runway
Super Blendable Blush in The Temptress’ Blush is my second favorite shade from the limited edition collection. It doesn’t have the most forgivable formula in the book but the color is so very gorgeous.

Did you pick it up!?

Take a look!

Ok, so fact, this runs a bit dry. Last year’s L’Oreal Project Runway Blushes were superior in formula to this year’s versions however, I can forgive them since they look amazing with a little TLC during application.

Your best application method is with a bushy brush. I personally like the MAC 116, I simply smile, and dab on the apple of my cheeks. Done!

The color is really unique as it’s a wine plum color that literally glows on my face. I love it! I thought it would look patchy and maybe a little too muddy but the color has a plummy glow that really compliments a Fall eye look!

It does run drier as I stated above and the texture is a little hard. However, a bushier brush does allow easy of application as it’ll kick up the color up into a nice powdery layer which you can tap off your brush and apply gently onto cheeks. Color wears well for me and I can get all day wear without it fading away so long as I wear a primer under it.

Overall, the color is too unique to pass up on and I find the formula forgivable due to this. Loved it.

I’m going to slap a Muse Approval on it.

It’s feels and looks special to me.

Well worth picking up!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    do you find that these blushes have a fragrance kind of remind me of physicians formula happy booster blush/ bronzer fragrance?

    Hi Muse

    This one looks fabulous on you..but do you think this will show up on NC42 skintone? which blush do you recommend from the entire Loreal fall collection especially for my skintone..I tired queens blush..but found too light for myself..can u suggest? thnx a lot :))

    • the Muse

      I’m not sure sweta, I’m not familiar with mac’s color range…! I’m sorry!?

    • Lorraine

      I’m an NW43 and I got the queen and temptress shades since there was a BOGO special. Both of them barely showed up on me. And both of them went right back to Rite Aid… sigh… It sure looks good on the Muse, though…

  • Maggie

    I was JUST looking at this at the drugstore. Was super tempted to pick it up but I see it shows up nicely on you. Might be a bit too much for my NC20-25 skintone. What is your MAC color for reference?

  • Liz

    Beautiful shade! Looks amazing on you muse πŸ™‚

    Oh and not related to the blush, buuut i saw your post on the qvc todays special for the Laura Geller fresh brewed beauty when you published it and have been lemming hard since. I just got mine in the mail and i am IN LOVE! my first laura geller products and i couldn’t be happier, packaging is too cute. thanks so so so much for the heads up and review!

    This is pretty. It does seem hard to find a good blush with purple tones. I used to have a neutrogena blush that was a lovely lavender/ light wine colored blush. I wish I could find a similar color!

  • neutralgirl

    Muse! I agree the color is pretty but it looks like chalky junk. Have u ever tried Breezy blush from Mac? Its pretty much the same color but has a nice texture and a glow. I think u would like it.

    • the Muse

      i haven’t neutralgirl thanks for the rec, will check it out ;-D!!!!!!!!!

  • Cookie

    Very pretty on you and it looks gah-geous with that lip color. What are you wearing??

  • Lorraine ER

    I can’t wait to get my hands on some of these pieces from this collection that you have reviewed. I just hope they are still in my local wags and/or cvs next week when I have $!!
    BTW, this color looks fab on you!

  • JenJ

    Gah! I was in Ulta yesterday and I kept staring at this blush. I was like no no you don’t need it. Then I see this *shakes fist* LOL!!! We I have some rewards dollars to use there and at CVS so I guuueesss…. πŸ˜€

    • the Muse

  • Heather
