Sephora Blush Review
Matte Perfection Bush Duos provide a two in one cheek color. This Sephora blush is buildable and extremely pigmented, but I found it hard to blend during the review.

Sephora Matte Perfection Blush Duos: Add a flush of color to your cheeks.
Blush is the perfect complexion topper to add some color to your look. Whether it’s a pink rosy cheek or a peachy sun-kissed look you’re going for, blush can help you achieve it. Sephora Collection has some really pigmented color products in their lineup, from their creamy lip liners, eyeliners, and even bronzers. They have a few different blush formulas, but I picked up the Matte Perfection Duos to try out in the shade English Rose. I love the color of this blush, but would I love the performance? Let’s review this Sephora Blush.
Promises vs. Performance: This blush is pigmented!
Matte Perfection Blush Duos from Sephora are a “modern powder blush” that have a creamy, buildable texture (Sephora.com) with a matte finish. As the name suggests, Matte Perfection Blush features two shades. The colors can be worn separately or alone for different looks.
My review Thoughts: Sephora Blush
Wow, this blush is pigmented! I swirled my brush to mix the two colors and right off the bat I got way more pigment than I was expecting. Before applying it to my face, I had to tap off some excess product to make sure I didn’t apply too much. While the blush was pigmented and its nice to get a sort of custom shade, the formula isn’t very blendable. The wear of this blush isn’t bad in terms of longevity, but it didn’t look the best after a full day of wear. I find with a lot of complexion products from Sephora, they miss the mark in terms of wearing well.
How It Compares: This isn’t the most blendable blush.
This review would not be complete without comparing Sephora Blush to top competitors. Let’s get into it. Sephora claimed this blush has a creamy buildable formula, and it fell short of those claims. The wear of the blush isn’t bad. I could still see the color on my cheeks at the end of the day, so the pigment is definitely there for this product. If you’re looking for a good affordable blush that isn’t hard to work with, I’d head to the drugstore and pick up Primer-Infused Blush from e.l.f. Not only are the shades of this e.l.f. blush stunning, but the wear of the formula is beautiful. And, not to mention, super affordable!
Milabu Beauty Method: Create a custom shade with this blush duo.
- Taking a blush brush (one of my favorites is this one from Flower Beauty, $14), swirl the bristles in the compact to combine the shades.
- This blush is ultra pigmented, so make sure you tap off any excess product!
- Apply the bush to your cheekbones using a circular, stamping motion.
- If desired, layer more of one (or both) of the shades on top to achieve your desired look.
