Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach Blush

Back from the Too Faced archives comes the Papa Don’t Peach Blush. I have been wanting to try this for a while now, but finally the time has come and based on the last few weeks of using it, I am very happy that Too Faced decided to bring this new and improved version back into existence.

If you haven’t already heard the hype or you have yet to try this sweet peach out for yourself, let me give you the highlights. First, it smells AMAZING! Seriously, the peachy aroma goodness is definitely one of its greatest selling points. Second, the adorable packaging. It is cute and functional. The compact is a magnetized tin, and kind of reminds me of vintage makeup compacts. Third, and probably the most important is the sheer quality of the product. The blush itself is a beautiful warm and natural shade that has a good pigment, yet is buildable upon application to create either a very natural, radiant glow or a more dramatic, sun-kissed bronzed effect.

Other reviews comment on its versatility as a highlighter as well, but because my skin is so fair that is not an option I can speak of first-hand. Review after review also echo the positive qualities I mentioned above which clearly demonstrate the need to try this product out if you are in the market for a new blush.

Ratings:

For $30 at Sephora, Ulta, or the Too Faced website, you will get a fairly large pan of product (0.32 oz.), in which a little goes a long way. I’ve been using it daily for about two weeks now and it looks as though I just opened it. The imprinted image is still perfect!

The It Color of the Moment – Blush

   

Blush! It’s everywhere! What a great color; so glad it is in abundance right now. Also one of Pantone’s colors of the year, you will start seeing (if you haven’t already) this color all over the place in apparel, accessories, home decor, etc.

The great thing about this color is that it is SO versatile. It looks great on all skin tones and coordinates flawlessly with so many colors. This is definitely a necessity color to include in your wardrobe. 

Another plus to the blush invasion is that unlike many “it” colors, this one is timeless. It’s a color that will remain in your closet for seasons to come without dating your style.

NYX Baked Blushes!

 Amazing!! I recently picked up a few shades of the NYX Baked Blushes. I’ve been playing and experimenting with them over the last week. They remind me a lot of the MAC Mineralize Blushes but for a less expensive price tag; although the MAC does come in a larger compact. Both are fantastic; however if you are looking to try several different shades, like I did, go with the NYX. Both have a lightweight, sheer coverage and have a very nice shimmer to them. The NYX Baked Blushes are also made to be used with either a wet or dry application, which give you dramatically different color. The dry application goes on as a light pigment and the wet application is more dramatic and pigmented. So you are really get getting two blushes in one….Bargain!!
