Quick Rating Rundown
:Kylie Cosmetics Blush Powder
Promises vs. Performance: An easy to apply flush of color.
A velvet-matte finish in a variety of shades is what Kylie Cosmetics promises with her Pressed Blush Powder. The silky formula feels lightweight on and blends in easily. With buildable coverage, you can customize your cheek look from a sheer wash of color to a bold pop. Kylie promises her blush is “mistake-proof” and easy to use, blending in easily and smoothly.
If you’re searching for a pigmented blush, Kylie Blush fits the bill. A little bit goes a long way with this powder formula. Swirl a tiny bit on the cheeks for a sheer wash of color, or layer more for a bolder pop. It applies easily and effortlessly as promised, blending into skin easily without being patchy. The texture is soft, but it is more powdery than I expected – definitely tap off the excess before applying! In terms of longevity, I’d say it is long wearing, but it can exaggerate texture and dryness after an all day wear (10+ hours).
How Kylie Cosmetics Blush Compares: For the price, it’s not bad.
Kylie Blush has some bomb complexion products. From bronzer to highlight to blush, each packs a punch in terms of pigment and wear beautifully. The blush in particular is quite nice. I have two shades, Kitten Baby and Pink Powder, and love mixing the two for a peachy-pink wash of color. The silky powder applies evenly without disrupting the makeup underneath. I will say, you can get quite a bit of kickback from the powder and I recommend tapping off the excess before applying. This powder blush is pretty long wearing without settling into fine lines or pores. Though, it can cling to dry patches and imperfections as the day goes on.
There are better blushes.
Does it compare to NARS Blush (the standard in prograde beauty)? In terms of application and ease of applying, I’d say it’s pretty on par. But, NARS Blush comes in 26 shades and multiple finishes: sheer, matte, and shimmer. NARS Blush is much more versatile and works on virtually all skin tones. The finely-milled powder is soft and never exaggerates imperfections regardless of how long you wear it. Though it is nearly double the cost, ($30) it’s one of the best powder blushes on the market. And, you can’t beat the iconic ‘Orgasm’ shade that looks good on everybody.
If you are looking for something more affordable, e.l.f. makes some dang good complexion products that are almost all under $10 at the drugstore. Check out their Primer-Infused Blush. At $7, it’s quite a steal.
