Review: Makeup: Make Up For Ever Sculpting Blush

in Blush,Product Reviews

There isn’t much I dislike from Make Up For Ever. Their products are really top notch and they have a great range of colour selection and I’d happily place them way above MAC in terms of quality and service. Prices aren’t that far off from MAC either. The only difference is that MAC seems to be more of a cult brand probably due to excellent advertising and marketing.

Preaching aside, my review today is on Make Up For Ever’s Sculpting Blush. Make Up For Ever has 2 types of blushes. The normal powder blush which comes in a smaller pan the same size as their eyeshadows, and the sculpting blush which comes in a much larger pan.

The one I have is #10 – Satin Peach Pink. The colour in the picture is pretty true to the colour of the product. I find it more peach than pink and I absolutely love the colour because this peachy pink colour is the colour that looks best on me!

According to Make Up For Ever’s site, the brighter shades of sculpting blush that come in cool and warm shades are meant to brighten the cheeks while the natural shades are meant to sculpt the face. #10 is a perfect shade for my skin as it brightens without loading on too much colour. You can build it up if you want more colour though if you have darker toned skin you might prefer to get a darker shade.

For those who are looking at more Nars Orgasm dupes, you might want to consider this one too. The Sculpting Blush has more peach tones while Nars Orgasm is more pink. Personally, I prefer the MUFE one because it looks better on me and less shimmery!

The texture is satin which imparts very slight shimmer but nothing overboard. You can see that there’s hardly any shimmer visible in the product. It lasts all day on my cheeks and I apply it with my Anna Sui cheek brush. But do bear in mind that I don’t have oily skin.

The blush comes in a large round pan in the usual Make Up For Ever packaging. There is a transparent slit in the cover to show you the colour of your blush. I have nothing bad to say about this blush at all!

I don’t know the price because this was part of a gift set from a friend. I’ll have to rely on Jojoba our resident Make Up For Ever maven to pop by and let us know the price of this blush icon wink Review: Makeup: Make Up For Ever Sculpting Blush

Pros: Lovely colour, lasts all day, applies smoothly

Cons: None that I can see

yeah, you finally reviewed this! i really want to try these blushes myself but they don’t fit into my MUFE pans so that’s why i’ve been postponing it and asked you to try it out first. this colour is very close to my regular MUFE blush 153 in real life. i wonder how do the two compare? i used to see 153 as the dupe of NAR Orgasm and i really love my 153 too.

will probably grab one myself. i was told by Bubbus that MUFE MIGHT release some pans for these big blushes but i’ve not heard anything since then. (errr, MONTHS!) i guess i don’t have to wait any longer for the pans to try the blushes? how do you find it travel wise? i worry about the think plastic packaging as one of my MUFE Duo Mat broke during an oversea trip and these are a lot slimmer!

great review once again.

Monstro: I’d say its even better than Nars :P

Maria: I don’t know unfortunately. I reckon just below RM100? I’ll try to find out. I didn’t have problems with fading but then I don’t have oily skin so I’m not the best person to ask.

Nikki: I’d honestly rather buy this than Nars Orgasm!

Beautyaddictone1: Yes they are a good brand.

Jojoba: Any idea about the price? I actually like this compared to the smaller pans (which I find grittier) This one’s silky smooth and really nice. I don’t travel with this one but I don’t forsee too much problems. Maybe since your Duo Mat broke it might not be a good idea taking this one on a trip then!

I don’t know how you do it PB… but everytime I read one of your posts on new blush I just feel like getting myself more blushes! Arrgh. But it’s a good thing, of course. It means that your readers connect with ya. :)
