Sephora says: A fade-proof blush with remarkably rich pigment to enhance individual features and the complexion. Be brilliantly flushed from sunrise to far past sunset with this long-wearing blush. The smooth, velvety powder glides onto cheeks and effortlessly blends into the pores to enhance the natural radiance of your skin. The fade-proof formula promises up to 24-hours of color and the rich pigment offers buildable, custom coverage for every skintone.
Say what you want about the famous (or infamous) Kat Von D, but there’s no denying that she has established a very decent color line. A lot of people have fallen in love with her foundation, which is super full coverage with a matte finish (btw, it’s currently out of stock at most Sephoras. I’ve heard that they’re changing the packaging). Her new blush definitely spiked my interest, especially with its 24 hour claim!
I love the way this blush applies, it’s sheer but buildable. This is the type of blush you could throw on in a hurry and not look like a crazy person from the 80’s. Essex is a cool rose and Bellisima is a peachy pink, both matte finish. Any skin tone could wear these due to their sheer buildable coverage and what color you prefer to see yourself in. The matte finish is perfect for my oily skin, and the smooth texture doesn’t get all powdery on me. I like the packaging, but I’m a person who likes a simple, no frills approach. It makes a good use of space, has a mirror, and securely closes with a “snap.” These only come in 7 shades, 5 mattes and 2 shimmers. I can’t say it lives up to a 24 hour claim (which is quite a ridiculous claim) simply because I don’t run on vampire time, so I wash off my makeup when it’s bedtime. It does, however, wear for a good 9 hours with no fading.
