If you're looking for that perfect blush that will light up your face but still look natural, your search is over. I imagine this to be universally flattering on all skin tones. The color, however, is so unremarkable in the pan that I literally had it sitting around brand new and unused for 3 months because I figured it would be exactly like MAC's mocha blush. It's funny how both look like generic dusty rose colors but are so SO different once on. Lorac soul turns into an amazing burnished rose color with very subtle peach tones that really lights up your skin. Very natural, but not in that way where people say "it's exactly the color of your skin flushed!"... which I personally don't even want. As gossmakeupartist says, rosacea is natural, but people don't try to look like they have that on their cheeks. This is just a beautiful color that looks great on the skin! I noticed I haven't picked up or even thought about buying another blush since I first tried this... which IMO is the true test of time.
Oh, this is a very beautiful blush. Don't judge this in the pan on its own. Put this on and I will guarantee you'll love it. The texture is smooth, very blendable and the color is so soft versatile and pretty. This gives a nice rosey neutral flush with very small shimmer in it (less obvious than Nars). I believe this blush will universally flatter most skintones. I originally skipped over this color while browsing online but once I played with it in person, I loved it.
i read so many great reviews about this color blush and whenever i went into sephora and saw it in the pan, i was turned off by how dull it looked. eventually, i had to buy it and try it for myself at home to see what all the hype was about and i was super excited to have liked it. i'm nc37, asian, with yellow undertones and this color looked really nice on. i can't explain the color but it just made my face look so much more awake and it defined my cheeks. i LOVE this blush!!!!
This blush is gorgeous! The SA told me it was the color the Lorac founder uses on Debra Messing. It's a beautiful dusty rose color that I could see looking natural on almost anyone. The blush itself is very smooth and finely milled - it never goes on streaky or chalky. Since getting this, it's the blush I now reach for most. Dare I say it's replaced my NARS O?? At least for the time being. A word about the packaging - the screw top is a little annoying - should be a flip. Also, make sure you get a good blush brush for this - it'll make a big difference. I like an angled one to sculpt my cheeks!
Love this blush! Gives a nice flush, not too light, not too dark, not too shimmery, blends well. Lasts all day, and doesn't oxidize. Works well with cooler or warmer tones. This is a new staple, and the one I reach for most often lately.
I've been using Lancome's Cedar Rose - nice color, but it goes on so light, I've used it up faster than I've ever used up a blush.
I love this blush. For reference I am nw20 with brown highlighted hair and green eys. In the pan this blush looks like a mauvey berry brown to me. Normally I choose cooler colors but this one looks perfect on me. Doesn't seem to matter what eye or lip colors I choose..it just looks like a natural flush on your cheeks...exactly what you want a blush to do. I get compliments on how good I look every time I wear it. In fact, today a woman in a CCO told me my makeup looked wonderful and asked what blush I was wearing. This blush is highly pigmented so use a light hand.
Love the color. Packaging is crap. Has little staying power on me for whatever reason? Regardless, I'll probably repurchase just because the color is so great.
As a woman with a darker complexion I have issues finding blushes that show up. This isn't the best but it isn't the worst either. It is a dusty rose color- very low impact on me. Not OTT at all. Great for a day look. But if I try to build this I find that it gives me an ashy look. Also lasts for a good while on my oily skin.
The packaging varies depending on how you purchase this blush- solo or in the LORAC Croc palette.
Solo it is in a plastic, black screw top jar with a clear opening on the lid to see the color.
In the Croc Palette it comes in a little black croc print palette (hence the name) containing four eyeshadows and a mirror. This is how I purchased it and feel that depending on your price range (and whether or not you can use the shadows of course) this is a smart way to purchase this blush. Solo it runs $19 but the palette only costs $36
I so wish I could use this blush as the color is amazing and really lights up my medium skin. Is very buildable and looks very natural. My skin is highly reactive and won't tolerate hardly any ingrediants and this blush was (I think) one of the products causing a reaction. I cry when I look at the full tub of this as I want to use it so badly!! I would recommend this blush to those of you who have tolerant or even semi-tolerant skin!!
this is the best blush i have ever had in my life. SERIOUSLY! first off i dont even like blushes with any sort of shimmer. but man this is that one exception. TRY IT!!! its looks best with a tan & gives that middle eastern kardashian exotic look.
