I Want this Blush That’s All That Needs To Be Said

Estee Lauder Rebellious Rose Pure Color Envy Blush launched today but it feels a little late as this is give me a big old Valentine’s Day vibe! But I’ll take it anyway! It’s gorgeous or at least it looks gorgeous in photos! This is a bright rosy red with a soft matte finish.

According to Estee Lauder the shade is universally flattering on skin tones and that made me laugh as I was literally talking about pH blushes on Instagram over the weekend. Anyone remember Tangee? I actually don’t but it was super popular in the 50s. It was a bright orange blush that tells the timeless tale of how it reacts with your body chemistry and changes the perfect custom color for your skin tone. We’ve seen plenty of this from products like Stila Custom Color Blush and Physicians Formula pH Matchmaker pH Powered Blush. Several years ago pH blushes were all the rage!

Do I think Estee Lauder Rebellious Rose Pure Color Envy Blush perfectly suitable for all skin tones? I have doubts. This is a pretty reddish so if you already have some red tones in your skin it might not look as beautiful on your skin as it does in the pan!

Universally flattering or not it’s still a stunning shade and I do want it.

Estee Lauder Rebellious Rose Pure Color Envy Blush is available now at Nordstrom.

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.

    GIMME. Provided it’s not actually one of those horrible pH changing ones and is just flattering for most skin colors, like that beautiful “For Me” collection from Maybelline. I can see this as being one of those colors that does look really good on everyone; we all have the same blood and if the same color kind of shows through – voila! Beautiful blush.

      Naa they are just saying it’s “Universally flattering” but def not color changing! I’m not sure! I think it might be bright for snow white skin and those who have a lot of redness but who knows ;-D might be awesome! I gotta see it up close and personal before I decide ;-D but def want!

      I think it could work if you apply it very lightly! but I can see pale and very fair skin having issues! It seems very bright!

    Not sure if fair skin and.auburn hair would work with.this color but I really.love it… I do wear this color in the lipstick. ( also universal) but use a pink lip gloss.over it…

    Pretty, but it looks pretty pigmented/bright for pale skins like mine. I gravitate towards almost pastel tones because anything else is just too much effort to apply and buff out. It is a gorgeous shade of rose, though, and reminds me of a snow-white cheeks kind of tone. If I see it in person, I might end up picking it up (or maybe I’ll bug you to text me for some pics once you get yours). 🙂

    Hmmm. Looks a little intense for ‘everyone’. Kind of Exhibit A-ish, but cooler. Really nice surface pressing. Not intentionally including the other C word, but Covid is going to spoil all try-it-on-lots of-skintones get togethers. I need this like I need a volcano in my yard, but it’s hella fun.

    It is gorgeous! But way too red for me. I sure do miss you Muse. I used to read your blog from my desk at work. Now retired I find I don’t spend a lot of time online anymore. But hoping to catch up. Hope you are well!
