We’re BLUSHING Over Smashbox’s Latest BLUSHES

Blush is a necessity for EVERY woman…. seriously! It revives a dull and tired face and brightens a complexion.
We had the opportunity to try out Smashbox Cosmetics newest line of ALL BLUSHES, Blush Rush, and we heart them!!!!

The concept behind the Blush Rush line is this: The colors are meant to work with every skin tone. Each shade is streak-proof and lasts all day. They are paraben and fragrance-free, infused with Vitamins A and E (good for skin) AND the compact comes with a swivel mirror hidden along the bottom (for easy on-the-go application)! How genius!!!!

While some of the colors are too light for our personal liking (and don’t really make a dent on our olive complexion) and others are a bit too bronzey (our skin is already naturally bronzed), Blush Rush definitely delivers close to purrrfection with every blush.

Here are the 8 shades in the line:
BARE cool dusty rose
ECSTASY warm shimmery nude
CHIFFON shimmery warm golden pink
PARADISE warm golden apricot
FLUSH shimmery cool pink
HEARTBREAK warm shimmery plum
GINGERSNAP warm rosy bronze
CRUSH cool raspberry

Our faves are Crush (dramatic for day), Paradise (apricot – color of the moment), Heartbreak (my new nighttime staple – it really makes a “blushing” statement), and Chiffon (great everyday burst of pink).

*** Professional Tip *** “Apply BLUSH RUSH to apples of cheeks and sweep back toward ears using BLUSH BRUSH #16 or FAN BRUSH #22.

PRICE TAG: $24.00 (for each blush). AVAILABLE AUGUST 1 at smashbox.com.
