Turn on your cheeks to a limited-edition powder blush inspired by the Award Winning AMC Drama Mad Men. Creates a daringly sheer, natural look. The Light Show shade captures the cheeky, fresh-faced ’60s look perfectly. Inspired by the rock-concert light shows and see-through, cut-out fashions that made the era swing. Compact case and carton are replicas of actual designs from Estée Lauder’s ’60s era collections.

Packaging: 9.5/10

This blush comes in a vintage-inspired compact made of metal and plastic. The compact flips open and has a blue button-type closure. There is a full-size mirror and thin sponge inside.

Quality: 8.75/10

As the name and product descriptions state, this is a sheer-colored blush. Light Show looks like a medium pink with shimmer in the pan, but once applied, the color is translucent, giving off a very soft rose pink shade with some sheen.

The powder is a little on the stiff side. The powder will take some blending and layering to get a smooth, noticeable finish on the skin, which is due to the sheer pigmentation and drier formula.

Ease of Use: 8.75/10

This blush takes a bit more layering and blending to get a smooth, noticeable finish on the skin. But it leaves a lovely flush of color with just a little bit of work.

Price: 8.75/10

For $50.00 you get 0.26 ounces of product. This is more than your average amount of product and also a higher than normal price point, given the special nature of the packaging.
