Revlon Haute Pink Powder Blush Review and Swatch

Revlon Haute Pink Powder Blush

Haute Pink is part of the blush collection Revlon released late 2013. It is a satin medium-bright neutral pink, similar to Mac Pink Swoon, except it has more of a very soft diffused shine to it. It doesn’t have any sparkle or frost to it at all though. Revlon Powder Blushes cost around $10 and contain 5g / 0.17 oz. of product. They are available more widely now at drugstores, Ulta, and Target.

Revlon Racy Rose Powder Blush Review and Swatch

Revlon Racy Rose Powder Blush

Racy Rose is part of the blush collection Revlon released late 2013. It is one of those perfect middle of the road shades that almost anyone can wear – a perfect pinkish coral shade that is neither too warm nor too cool. Revlon Powder Blushes cost around $10 and contain 5g / 0.17 oz. of product. They are available more widely now at drugstores, Ulta, and Target.

Racy Rose is a light pinky coral with a satin finish. It is identical in texture and finish to Naughty Nude. I wouldn’t call it frosty but it has a soft sheen and very fine sparkles that can be seen on the skin up close. From a normal distance, they are not noticeable.

Remember Jane Cosmetics from way back when? They recently relaunched and released a whole bunch of brand new products. The Multi-Colored Cheek Powders were the first thing to catch my eye. They have a pretty floral design in the powder and simple, clean packaging.

Milani Luminoso Baked Blush

Milani Luminoso Baked Powder Blush Review and Swatches

Milani Luminoso Baked Blush
Purchased by Tamara

Product Description


Price/Quantity: $8 for 3.5 grams
Availability: Milani’s Website, Target, Walmart, Fred Meyer, Walgreens
Color Range: 8 Shades
Color/Finish: Luminoso is a satiny light peach. Depending on the light though it can either appear more pinkish or more orange.
Packaging: The blush is packaged in a fairly thick plastic compact with the product name and shade labeled on the back. The top portion of the compact contains the dome-shaped blush and underneath that is a mirror and a flat brush. The compact stays shut securely and I haven’t had any issues with it breaking. The brush has a blunt end and densely-packed bristles that are a little scratchy. I wouldn’t use it on a daily basis but in a pinch it would be okay.
Smell: I don’t smell any fragrance but I can smell a barely-there powdery smell.

Performance


Application: Applies evenly and smoothly and blends out nicely. Be careful though. It is deceivingly light colored but very highly pigmented so it can be over applied more easily than you would think.
Pigmentation: Highly pigmented but easy to apply with a light hand. The satin finish gives a nice glow to the cheeks without being glittery or frosty looking.
Texture: Super smooth and blendable. Not powdery or crumbly.
Longevity: 8+ hours. In all the times I’ve worn this I’ve never had it fade on me.

NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator Review

NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator
Gleam, Sunbeam

Product Description


Price/Quantity: $7 for 0.5 fl oz.
Availability: NYX website, Ulta, Amazon
Color Range: 2 colors
Color/Texture:

  • Sunbeam – Pinkish shimmer with small glitter particles.
  • Gleam – Peachy bronze shimmer with a subtle glowy finish.

Packaging: Flat squeeze tube with a twist off lid.
Smell/Fragrance: It is not fragranced but it does smell like an “unscented” moisturizer.

Performance


Application: Easy to just tap on and blend with your fingers. Feels lightweight and not sticky. Dries down completely after a minute so it won’t rub off easily. This could also be mixed in with your liquid foundation to give it a more dewy finish.
Pigmentation: Provides a subtle glow. It’s not frosty or shiny. Sunbeam will deposit a few tiny glitter particles and seems to be a bit more light reflective than Gleam. Gleam just has very fine light reflecting particles that are hard to see unless you look up close.
Longevity: Since it dries down it will easily last all day.
