I Want The Make Up For Ever Lustrous Blush Palette But…

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

I want the Make Up For Ever Lustrous Blush Palette but it’s $150 and can someone give me the low down on the size of those wells? People, I don’t want to spend $150 on a blush palette with small ass wells. I will cut someone if they are small and my brush can’t fit in them.

No but seriously, this is a monster palette that holds 12 highlight, sculpt, and blush shade each of which is 0.17 oz in size full-size Artist Face Color Highlight, Sculpt and Blush Powder.

THAT HAS to mean this thing is way bigger than it looks in promo photos right?

Chant with me, “I don’t need more blush! I don’t need more blush!” I might be able to convince myself not to buy it if I continue.

I need to see it in person, hold it, pet it, and perhaps get it for 20% Off during the Holiday Rouge Event (batting my lashes in joy).

If you can’t wait or fear it’ll sell out the Make Up For Ever Lustrous Blush Palette is available now at Sephora.com and yes, it appears your brush will fit happily in those wells.

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. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    It’s…beautiful. *single tear*

    I have sooo many blushes. But I still want.

  • Maria

    Muse. You do not need more, especially with all the Tarte blush palettes that you and me have along with many other blushes. Plus you save a lot of money.

  • Agona

    Hahaha, I actually get annoyed when blushes are included with eye shadow in a palette because I don’t use blush that much and when I do, I prefer a sheer look because I do darker eye makeup and sometimes with a bold lip. That being said, I still somehow ended up with 5 blush palettes and a single blush. I’m on a blush no-buy, which is sad because I actually DO want to create my own Make Up For Ever blush duo with their Artist Blushes. πŸ™‚

    • Isabella Muse

      Oddly enough I’m the opposite, I’m always reaching for the blush first in a palette vs the eyeshadow ;-D

  • MJ

    Oh shoot. Cheek palettes are my weakness. NARS especially, but this is gorgeous.

  • amy

    Unless one will use every shade in the palette, it would actually be more cost effective to buy desired shades as “trios”. A “trio” goes for about $45 USD, so even if one wants 3/4 of what’s in the palette, it would still add up to less money, and could be spread out over time. For those who already have some of these shades would be better off, too, especially if they don’t foresee hitting pan any time soon.

    I already have 3 of these, won’t touch 3 others, so even if I wanted the remaining 6, $90 is much easier to swallow.

    • kjh

      Yeah, agree with you, esp as I wear fewer colors the older I get. (And not the ones you’d think, lol.). Was checking the swatches in T. Think the only problem is that you virtually always have to choose a trio online…and the online checkout usually only takes one code, so you won’t be able to get your choice, and the impending sale price at the same time, iirc. Maybe will wait til next year.

      • amy

        You can also get “duos”, which brings down the price of each one a bit.

        As for codes, there’s always the Sephora BI/VIB sales, and that code takes the percentage off the entire order.

        Some stores carry some shades in-store, as well.

  • Hollybell41

    Holy really expensive palette Batman! It’s pretty but easy to pass at that price.

  • Melissa

    ugh… this is beautiful and I actually don’t own many of these so it would make “sense” . hmmm… i need reviews and a sale first LOL

  • kjh

    Say it in your best Soup Nazi impersonation voice: No mufe for you! Make up rehab for ALL of you!

  • Dee

    Think of all the lip balm and Korean face product you can buy with that $150! Don’t do it!

  • Neetzy

    Whoah – I wasn’t expecting this palette to be $150! And I’m guessing it’s $150 USD, which means in Canada it’s closer to $200. Yikes. I do need some new blush, but I don’t think I’ll be buying this.

  • Jodi

    “Bad Request” … that’s what I get when I attempt to follow the link to Sephora … Any others having this issue?

          • Jodi

            Thanks all! I’m still getting the same ” Bad Request” message …. The link to Ulta is fine, but not so with Sephora. Maybe it’s some kind of divine intervention, discouraging me from blowing money!

          • Isabella Muse

            hm so weird sorry jodi! not sure why it isn’t coming up for you! Try clearing cache?!

  • Ashe

    Sigh…I’m the same way, I have to look at something a thousand times and also pet it. I understand, Muse, I understand.

  • Shana k.

    Hahhhh! I totally got a visual of you at Sephora and the sales lady approaching you and you standing there hugging it and her promptly making a u-turn in the other direction.

    • Isabella Muse

      LOL omg that would so happen or they might have to call mall security to pry it from my hands haha!

      • Shana k.

        Hahaha !!! YAAAAASSSSSS!! Omg
        That would make some interesting headlines ,that’s for sure.

        • Isabella Muse

          lol what kind of friend are you that you’d sit and laugh if I made the headlines? lol!

          • Shana k.

            The kind that would be right there with ya making headlines!!

          • Isabella Muse

  • Brenda C

    I just don’t know where on earth I’m going to get all this money that I’m going to need to spend on all these goodies! (Looking up to the sky for the pennies (hundreds) that are supposed to be falling from heaven??!!)

  • Shannon. N
