Today I have a review of the Too Faced Love Flush blush in the colour “I will always love you”. Not that I needed another coral blush (it’s all I really own), but the packaging on this was so adorable I couldn’t resist!
The moment I first saw this I was reminded of a Polly Pocket! Anyone else feel me? I’ve got warm toned skin so I always (literally always…) gravitate to coral blush. I just feel prettier in it over pink blushes. So how did this measure up to my coral stash??
-ridiculously cute packaging
-slight shimmer (but chunky glitter bits!)
-expensive at $31 CAN
-needs to be built up
-doesn’t last all day
-pigmentation is okay but not great
While I love Too Faced, I have to say I’m a bit disappointed that this doesn’t pack more punch. I reviewed last year’s holiday palette from them – the ‘Everything Nice Palette’, and the Papa Don’t Peach blush in that is to die for, so I was expecting similar quality. I’m not sure if it’s because of the design on the blush or what, but I find it needs building up to get the effect that you’re actually wearing blush. It’s almost as if it’s been pressed too hard and doesn’t want to leave the compact! It’s not quite as awful as the Maybelline Fit Me blush (epic fail- see my Beauty Products That Sucked post), but for $31 I expect creamyness and pigmentation at first swipe.
If you like a buildable blush than this product is probably great for you. It’s easy to get a subtle look without worrying about overdoing it. I noticed it didn’t last all day either despite using a primer and setting spray. After trying the Tarte Amazonian Clay blush, the bar has been set really high. Seeing as the two blushes are practically the same price, I’d honestly say go for Tarte! Or, save some money and buy a blush from the Sephora brand. They apply about the same as this one and are only $16.
