Review & Swatches: Smoak Mineral Blush in “Sparkling Rose”

Smoak Mineral Blush in Sparkling Rose

Availability: Smoak Online
Price: $15.50

Company’s Description

Hypoallergenic. Satin-like pressed formula floats over skin creating a healthy glow. Luxurious and long-wearing finish brushes on easily without streaking or need for blending.

Smoak Cosmetics’ blush line offers a mix of matte and shimmery finishes in 10 colors. This review is for the color Sparkling Rose–a coral-pink with gold shimmers.


Packaging: 9/10

This blush comes in a light-weight, small, plastic compact with a snap-shut, see-through lid.

Quality: 9.5/10

Sparkling Rose is a very pretty color with good pigmentation. It is packed with finely-milled golden shimmers that leave a beautiful glow to the cheeks.

The formula isn’t overly powdery and glides onto the skin smoothly.

The color does remind me of NARS Super Orgasm, but is less pink and has more refined and evenly-distributed shimmer.

Ease of Use: 9/10

This color glides over the skin smoothly, blends out easily, and can be layered.

Price: 8.5/10

For $15.50 you get 4 grams (0.14 ounces) of product. MAC blushes cost $20.00 and contain 6 grams (0.21 ounces) of product. You are actually paying slightly more for Smoak’s blush than you would with a MAC blush.

    Glad to hear that the “Sparkling” part is actually more “shimmering”. :)
