Estee Lauder Naughty Pure Color Blush was a limited edition shade launched in Spring 2012 but no worries if you love Naughty you can always haul it at the Cosmetics Company or Evil-bay.

And of course, the entire Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush Collection is still very much alive and kicking in the permanent Estee Lauder line.

Let’s take a look!

I fell in Love with the Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush Collection and started collecting these fabulously pigmented blushes when I realized I wasn’t willing to dish out the cash for a Tom Ford Blush. These beautiful blushes are $30, available in a wide range of shades, and house .24 oz of product and yes, they are as luxurious as Tom Ford’s blushes!

These have a finely milled silky texture that applies and blends beautifully on cheek bones. The formula is incredibly long wearing and I’d say most comparable to Tarte Amazonian Blushes or NARS Blushes in terms of pigment and wear time. The texture is simply beautiful to work with and oh so pigmented.

I picked up Estee Lauder Naughty Pure Color Blush (kinda reminds me of NARS Taos or Taj Mahal) recently at the Woodbury Commons Cosmetic Company Store for half price (I think I paid $15 bucks). If you’re in New York they have a TON of them available so if you love the shade maybe head up there and do some damage (P.S. Le Sportsac has 40% off everything in store even the It’s a Small World Print so if you’re making the pilgrimage might as well hit up that sale too!).

Naughty is actually TOO pigmented for me. Who would think I’d ever say something like that? This is a stunning warm orange shade that can be worn full on darker skin tones (there’s plenty of pigment here for deeper skin tones) or sheerer out on fairer skin to a pretty shade of peach when blended out well! The color is so beautiful I wish I could get away with it for a more dramatic look but it is a bit more pigmented than I’m willing to go with my blush.

Needless to say it’s still very pretty and very unique.

Do love!

The Pure Color Blush range always gets my highest approval. I love them! Very well worth picking up a shade or two and possibly one my favorite and HG (holy grail) blushes!

If you’re craving the Tom Ford Blushes but not the $56 price tag I’d highly suggest Pure Color Blush as a most excellent replacement!

Do you own any?

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.

    I actually just bought this blush at the begining of the month at my estee lauder counter. I am in love with this and fearless from the pure color line. They are hands down one of my favorite blush brands if not the one.

    As always great review muse

    O-M-GEEE! Muse, I own this color along with another, which the name escapes me right now, but OMG, i absolutely love this line of blushes!! I too purchased both from a CCO ($19.99) and want to go back for more! IMO, these bad boys are underrated, not much talked about and worth every dime! LOVE LOVE LOVE! Thanks, Leslie

    Estee lauder blush is amazing. I bought one 4 years ago and I purposely broke it with a hammer and put it in a Ziploc bag. These blushes are highly pigmented, the color payoff is excellent and the lady at the counter showed me how to apply them so it looks like a natural flush. $30 is totally worth it as every Estee Lauder product I’ve ever bought has lasted forever and the quality of the product is fantastic. Call me opinionated but Estee Lauder is my favorite line of cosmetics! Highly recommend! Plus I used to work at the counter, the only product that disappointed me from them was their tinted moisturizer-not impressed. Their BB Cream is fabulous!
