Too Faced Love Flush Blush Palette Review and Demo


I remember seeing this palette around the holiday season and somehow talked myself out of it. It is a limited edition release and I'd highly recommend you get your hands on it!

Basics
Name: Too Faced Love Flush Blush Palette
Shade: 6 Shade in the Palette
Price: $45CAD
Size: 6x2g
Available at Sephora and Too Faced online.

What Too Faced says: " Blush all day and night with the flush of true love! The long-wear, fade-proof, smudge-proof formula keeps your cheeks perfectly flushed for up to 16 hours. Six high-impact shades give a pretty pop of color for any skin tone—all in one adorable mirrored palette"


Packaging: If you know Too Faced, you know they come out with adorable packaging! Their latest blush releases have all been in the shape of hearts: Sweethearts, Soulmates, and now the Love Flush blushes. This product contains all 6 shades of the Love Flush collection and is housed in a long thin cardboard palette. Each of the shades also has "TF" engraved into the product. I like the addition of the mirror as well. Although the packaging is long, it is still very thin and not bulky at all. This would also be great to take on a longer trip as it has all the options you'd need for different shades of blush!

Formulation: Each of the shade is soft, smooth and pigmented! They all swatch true to color although looking a bit similar on the cheeks. All of them are blendable. Three of the shades contain "sparkle" but it is quite unnoticeable on the cheeks and I find only I Will Always Love You actually gives a glow. The other three shades are a satin finish. 

Shades


Love Hangover: Described as the perfect warm pink, this shade has a tinge of orange and I'd say it's a perfect coral instead. It's an easy color to wear and reminds me of Bella Bamba from Benefit.

Baby Love: This is the shade that made me want to buy this palette. I've been on the hunt for a nude blush and this fits the bill. It's a dusty nude that has a hint of pink when applied to the skin. The blush has gold sparkle when you look at it but it disappears when on the cheeks. Great every day color!

I Will Always Love You: My surprise favorite out of the whole palette is this shade! A light orange peach with some golden glow. When I wear this, I don't need a highlighter at all and my cheeks look so beautifully healthy.


How Deep Is Your Love: This shade is a bright watermelon pink that is richly pigmented and leans towards red. I don't like this on my cheeks as much as I have naturally red cheeks but would be gorgeous if you are looking for a pigmented blush.

Justify My Love: The lightest shade in the palette, this would be great for someone with a lighter skin tone. It is a cool pink that would give a pretty winter glow. But it's a bit too ashy on my skin.

Your Love is King: I also love plummy shades to wear as blushes so this is one of my favorites as well. It's a medium toned plum that would work well to define the cheeks at the same time if you apply it slightly below your cheekbones.

Although the shades don't wear 16 hours as it claims, it does stay relatively well on my cheeks. The biggest drawing point of this product is the value and the diverse range of shades! You get 12g of product in total for $45. Also if you are just starting out with blushes, you'll get to play with such a wide range of colors to figure out what's good on your skin tone. And if you are a beauty junkie like some of us bloggers, this would be a great travel palette to bring all the shades with you.

I Will Always Love You


How Deep is Your Love


Overall, the quality is great and the price is amazing. I would highly highly recommend you to pick this up if you are interested in trying out new colors on your cheeks!
