Fenty Beauty Crush on Cupid Cream Blush Review & Swatches Formula Overview$20.00/0.1 oz. – $200.00 Per OunceThe formula is supposed to give a “fresh wash of color” that is “effortless” to blend with a “natural-looking” finish.

Persona Georgia Super Blush Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Persona Georgia Super Blush Review & Swatches Georgia Persona Georgia Super Blush ($22.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a brighter pop of medium coral-orange with strong, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish.

Sydney Grace Pure Love Blush Review & Swatches Pure Love Sydney Grace Pure Love Pressed Blush ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a deep, rosy copper with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented–to the point where a little went a long way–so I’d recommend using with a lighter hand and building up coverage if you tend to be heavy-handed or prefer a sheerer application of blush/highlight.

ColourPop x Sailor Moon Cat’s Eye Blush Review & Swatches Cat’s Eye Colour Pop Cat’s Eye Pressed Powder Blush ($12.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium pink-coral with a satin finish. It had very faint, golden pearl strewn through it that seemed to help it blend better on my skin but also gave it a subtle sheen–more of a “natural” finish than true matte but not overly shimmery.
