Packaging: 9/10

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

Quality: 8.75/10

Macaroon is a classic, straight-forward peach shade that technically has silver micro-shimmer in the pan but leaves a close-to-matte finish on the skin without any noticeable shimmer.

This blush’s formula is very soft and “loose” to the point that, when swatched, I couldn’t get the powder to stick to the skin. I was almost certain that this blush, as a result, wouldn’t show up when applied to the cheeks. Luckily, when testing out the product, the powder did adhere to the skin just fine, giving off a soft flush of peach that could be built up with subsequent layers. The oils on the skin, plus any cream or liquid products you put on your skin before applying this blush probably help the powder adhere. If you don’t usually wear foundation or apply any skincare products before applying your makeup, this powder may not adhere well to your skin.

The extremely fine texture of the blush makes it give off a very smooth and natural finish on the skin. The blush kept its pigmentation through most of the day, fading only after about seven (7) hours of wear.

Ease of Use: 9.5/10

This blush blended out smoothly over the skin and layered effectively to give off varying degrees of pigmentation.

Price: 9/10

For $16.000 you get 0.14 ounces (4 grams) of product. For comparison, Sephora’s Colorful Blushes cost $14.00 and contain 0.11 ounces of product.
