As beautiful and nuanced as a bouquet of roses…Bright vivid colors and pastel colors all together in one compact to easily mix and blend to perfection. Beautiful colors create “blooming” cheeks. Shades can be used alone or mixed for a personalized look!
Anna Sui’s new Rose Cheek Color blushes come in 4 different color combinations. This review is for #301 Dreamy Rose, which includes a combination of pink and orange tones.
This blush comes in a light-weight, reflective black, plastic compact that snaps shut and contains a full-sized mirror inside. The blush pan is embossed with a design of roses, each with its own blush color.
The shade #301 Dreamy Rose contains shades of baby pink, bright medium pink, pink-coral, and orange. Once mixed together, you get a medium-toned pink with a hint of peach undertone. The center shade (the light pink color) has silver shimmer in it, which gives the overall color a subtle sheen.
The pigmentation on this blush is on the lighter side, so it takes more product than normal to get a good layer of color on the cheeks. The powder is soft, finely milled, and little on the chalky side. Even layered, you get a translucent finish of color.
Overall, the packaging and cute design of this blush help to make it unique, but the formula is good instead of being great.
Ease of Use: 8.75/10
This blush kicks up a bit of powder when you’re swiping your brush over the pan, and it takes 2-3 layers to get a good showing of color, but the soft formula blends well.
For $36.00 you get 0.21 ounces (6 grams) of blush. This blush is on the expensive side, but you also get more-than-average when it comes to the amount of product.
