Anastasia of Beverly Hills Cosmetics NEVER disappoints me. I was ecstatic with the news that the first Anastasia Blushes were on the horizon. As soon as they launched, I was first in line! Even better, Anastasia of Beverly Hills Blush Trios ($30) includes three blushes in each palette, and the palettes come in five different colorways. Five palettes, three blushes in each, that is 15 new blush shades. Each palette has a “theme”. They include:
Pink Passion; Cocktail Party; Peachy Love; Pool Party, and Berry Adore.
I purchased Berry Adore, and Peachy Love.
Velvet – a deep berry/plum with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish
Exotic – a medium/dark red-berry shade with cool undertones and a pearly sheen finish.
Desert – a medium coral with warm undertones and a matte finish.
Berry Adore is a four season blush, that looks great with or without a tan. I can definitely see myself wearing this in the fall and winter months, and I have been wearing it now that it is summer because it brings some life to my tan .
All of the palettes come in a sturdy, gorgeous compact with a mirror. It is great to travel with because you have three different shades you can choose from.
The powdered blush is created with a finely milled formula. Some fallout is to be expected, but it wasn’t a large amount. The shades did kick up powder in their pans. They are richly pigmented therefore, you do not need a lot of product. Because the shades are so strong, use a light touch, a little goes a long way. The shades are super creamy and blend out well. They feel silky soft to the touch, are easy to apply, and go on seamlessly. The blushes are long-wearing, and long lasting.
The second palette I purchased is Peachy Love.
Nectarine – a medium peachy-coral warm undertones and a matte finish
Ginger – a pop of warm orange with reddish undertones in a matte finish
Miami – a bright, light medium orange with warm yellow undertones and a faint gold sparkle finish
Peachy love gives me that kissed by the sun look. This is a great spring/summer palette. Peach looks good on every skin tone.
Like all of Anastasia of Beverly Hills products, The Blush Trios are luxurious, and like all of ABH’s products, they are an exceptional quality. The more pigmented a shade is, the less powder you need on your face. It doesn’t accentuate wrinkles. crepiness, nor pore size. Remember, use it with a light touch. You can layer the shades, just swirl your brush into each one for a multi-dimensional, more customized look. I think the price point is amazing these luxurious blushes. Plus, you get three shades! Even better, because you need to use so little, the blush will last you a long time!
Are you loving these blushes? Do you like the Anastasia products? She began with eyebrow products, and now she is venturing into lipgloss, lipsticks, and blush! What next? We’ll have to wait and see.
You Are Awesome!
