Packaging: 9/10

Studio Blushes come in matte, black, plastic compacts with snap-shut lids that have a small, clear window in them to allow you to see the color inside. There is also a thin mirror on the inside of the lid.

Quality: 8.5/10

Giddy Gold is a medium-strength gold color with strong tangerine orange undertones and finely-milled shimmers. Unlike with Twinkle Pink, the glitters in this color adhere well to the skin, giving a beautiful sheen to the skin.

The color pay-off is average. You’ll need to layer 3-4 times to get the strength of color shown in the photo, below. The formulation is also dusty.

This color would make a good summer highlighter for warm-toned dark skin, but might be too orange for use as a blush or highlighter on lighter skin.

Ease of Use: 8.75/10

Because the color payoff is on the weak side, this blush takes time to layer.

Price: 10/10

For $3.00, you get 4.75 grams (0.17 ounces) of blush. Even compared to other drugstore-brand blushes, you get a great deal for your money.
