Sula Beauty offers playfully pretty blushes in gorgeous on-trend colors that are long lasting, easy to blend and made with natural ingredients
Sula’s line of powder blushes come in a total of 4 shades. The shades Almost Famous, Forget Me Not, and Girl Next Door are reviewed, below.
Sula’s blushes come in square, white, plastic compacts with clear lids to allow you to see the color inside. The tops snap shut and do not contain mirrors inside.
Almost Famous is a bright, ruby-rose with silver glitters. Forget Me Not is a slightly dirty peach color with silver glitters. Girl Next Door is a bright carmine-watermelon with silver glitters–much like Almost Famous but with more orange in it. The colors in real life, by the way, are nothing like the colors shown online.
All the colors are incredibly pigmented and give off vibrant color. While, normally, pigmentation is a good thing, I feel these blushes are too pigmented. They are so bold that they look almost clown-ish on the skin and need to be buffed out to make them more presentable. The glitters are not as finely-milled as I’d prefer and do a mediocre job of showing up on the cheeks once applied.
The formula is very powdery, so beware of the blush dust-cloud that will inevitably result when you put a brush to the pan. The overly powdery consistency seems to be the reason these blushes apply patchy on the skin, which is another reason you should blend them out on application.
The blushes do have a good wear-life, lasting about 7 hours before fading.
Ease of Use: 8/10
You have to use a very, very light hand with these, especially if you are using either of the pink colors. When I was testing these out, I used a duo-fiber brush (which picks up only a small amount of product). Even then, the color went on so strongly that I had to go back over the color and buff it out with a kabuki brush.
Unfortunately, Sula blushes have no size indicator on them– a big no-no for packaging. It doesn’t appear you get an especially large or small amount of product, and a price of $8.00 is average-to-high for drugstore blushes, which range from $5-$10.
