Soap & Glory Peach Party Blush Brick8

Soap & Glory Peach Party Multi-Colour Blush Brick ($15) is a new, or at least new to the US, luminous blush that recently launched with the Soap & Glory Makeup Collection for Spring 2016.

Back in 2012, Soap & Glory Love at First Blush launched and I was quick to snap it up from the UK because 1. It was a Soap & Glory and 2. It was just so delightfully pretty! Love at First Blush is actually back from the past with new packaging (it used to come in a cardboard compact but it get upgraded to a plastic one) and along with it Peach Party joins the club.

It’s a funny thing as I was slightly burned from Love at First Blush but when I got Peach Party in my greedy, grubby little hands I was so excited I ended up overlooking the fact that I didn’t actually like Love at First Blush.

Happens sometimes when you’re a makeup addict. You’re quick to forgive and forget when presented with something shiny and new!

Soap & Glory Peach Party Blush Brick is like a Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick on crack. Seriously, this is a true story. Soap & Glory presents it in a pretty black compact and a generously sized mirror inside. Where they go wrong in their marketing is when they call it a “blush” because it is not a blush in my opinion. It is however, a highlighter with a hint of tint.

It’s a very, very, very beautiful! I thought that Love at First Blush was gorgeous but Peach Party brings even more gorgeous. It’s a shimmer wheel presentation that has four different wedges of color in a shimmering gold, a russet bronze, a soft dusky pink, and a pinkish beige. Take away the wedge design and put them into strips and you’d basically have a Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick but one with way more shimmer and sparkle.

It’s quite frosty and quite shimmery with a formula that clings to drier areas and will likely accentuate pores. You have to use a very, very, very light hand this with because it does have a disco ball finish (see my photo below? Total disco ball!). I, unfortunately, have a heavy hand which results in a big old shimmery hot mess. It does have some color but you have to kinda sorta direct your brush to the russet shade which produces the best color and gives that peachy tint to cheeks. However, in order to get color you have to build a good deal because with a lighter hand you’ll get sparkle but not color. It’s a double-edged sword which doesn’t really work in your favor as if you apply too little you get no color and too much, you end up looking like someone threw a sparkle bomb in your face.

Do I love it?

Yes.

Is it a pain to use?

MAJORLY!

Do you need it?

Not really but if you like pretty highlighters or you’re just a lover of Bobbi’s Shimmerbricks this is a cheaper and more pigmented version of her formula!

Soap & Glory Peach Party Blush Brick is available now at Ulta and Ulta.com.

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.

    Lol! What do you do when you overdo it with the blusher? Do you take a bit off with cotton wool or a tissue? I love BareMinerals’ The Royal Court LE trio of blusher, highlighter and bronzer, it’s easy to do a subtle look with and is my go-to for a day time look on my fair skin.

      impossible to correct even with wipe off. Best to apply sheer and build as needed πŸ™‚

    Holy snap! It’s so frosty that your cheeks look like they’re peach-tinted TV static. I had thought of picking this up, but now that I see how over the top frosty it is I’m glad I haven’t. You saved me again, Muse! My wallet and I thank you!

    Now I wouldn’t use this as a blusher but if it doesn’t contain carmine, I just might get one to use as eye shadow. Eye shadows can not have too much shimmer in my life!

    Whoa, Nellie. I like Soap & Glory and have been excited to see more of their makeup products being offered here but yeah, that’s too glittery for me. I could see it being really pretty if applied perfectly but who has time to mess around to get it just just right?

  • Katherine T.

    OMG, what were they thinking??? They need to do this in a sliver color, just so when you rotate your head back and forth, will really look like a disco ball!

  • Silvia

    I saw them last night at Target and am so tempted I think I even like the peach over the pink one they both look lovely. They had an opened one so I did swatched it on my wrist. I think I’ll end up getting one is for $12.99 at Target. Been wanting a pretty peach, also have checked but cannot try the P. Formula peach blush which could be less of a disco ball. Lol! But the color looks beautiful in you Muse. Talk about shimmer are the P. Formulas eyeshadows wow! Wow!! Those I’m not attempting way too much for my age but whom am I kidding so tempted!

    • Isabella Muse

      aw thanks Silvia! It’s a bit TOO much shimmer for me tbh ;-D Let me know how it works for you if you get it!

  • Silvia

    I bought them both the pink & the peach and love them! I apply it with a highliter brush I do need to be super careful since I’m very pale/cool toned type who won’t tan (in my dreams! Lol!) only end up like a fried red lobster. They are similar to Milani baked blushes which I love specially in the evenings since they glow a bit.
    I don’t mind not having a brush since I leave at home and use my own brushes. Lovely.
