Shown above are swatches of Blushing Berry (a neutral with a hint of berry) and Pink Crush (a vivid bubblegum pink).  The formula is incredibly creamy and smooth to apply.  Color is buildable, and the finish is semi-sheer.  My tip for applying?  Simply dab a small amount on the cheeks.  Only a tiny bit of product is needed to deliver great color.  The overall look is dewy and youthful.

Retail price is $32 per blush stick.

Press SampleAt first glance, you would assume this Sephora Collection MicroSmooth Baked Blush Duo contained only one shade.  If you look closely, you can actually see a subtle difference as the left side is a bit paler than the right.

In the compact the shade difference might appear subtle, but once applied you can really see the variation. The paler shade is actually a frosty apricot with a golden sheen.  The deeper shade is a medium apricot with no golden shimmer and a satin finish.  The colors can be swirled together or separately.  These colors are universally flattering, and vivid enough to deliver a pop of color on even darker complexions.

Retail price is $17.

Click HERE to buy it at Sephora.com.  Other color choices are Tangerine Tease, Fuchsia Flushed, Rose Emotion, Tea Rose Tickle, and Mangobeam.
