I was looking for a blush that was on the pink side with little to no shimmer and after reading the reviews on here.. I went for pink swoon. Just like everyone has said, the color is super intimidating in the pan. I bought it online and when it came in the mail, my initial thoughts were, "okay, this is definitely going in the makeup castoff drawer" but after giving it a try, I loved it! I love to use it on the apples of my cheek for a nice subtle color. I find myself reaching for it when I want a nice and quick look. I'm an NC40 for reference, and it still manages to show up on me. This is a great blush when you're looking for a natural, soft pop of pink on the cheeks.
It looks bright pink in the pan.And I was like "I'm going to be a clown". But the SA kept telling me that it'll look great on my NC 20 skin.ok yes,so i try it though...ohhhh!pink swoon is all I really want and am looking for all this time for a pink blush!.....so this is the different between pink swoon and other "pink blushes"...
Pink Swn- gives you a fresh face.it suddenly brighten up your face just in 1 swipe,and it doesn't turn in to orangey colour,or red colour,or become dull.it just really pink pink and pink!trully nice fresh baby pink colour....but not that clown pink cheek because it's so sheer!
OTHER pink blushes- ok,maybe you think that other pink blushes might duplicate pink swoon,but it can't!why?because ussually other pink blushes might turn out to be orangey or dull or reddish in a couple of hours.....blah blah blah...or maybe sometimes it turns out too pigmented.makes you looks like clown.
With pink swoon,you'll get the puree pink colour...that looks sheer,so sweet, and fresh ALL DAY!don't put too much though,only 1 swipe on the apple of ur cheeks...if u need to contour...contour it first with emote/harmony blushes/bronzers....afterwards put PS on the apple cheeks...it'l look very nice and sweet all day long....
The downside is....i prefer with a little shimmer,and I wish it stay longer on my cheek...though it is not that long lasting...though I have to touch up once in the evening if I apply it in the morning....go get it if you love trully PINK blushes without a hint of red,plum,orange/brownish....just REALLY NICE SHEER PINK!that brighten up your face and making you looks younger!that's what a girls want
This is the perfect pink blush if you have fair-medium skin tone. It is highly pigmented so application with a skunk brush is recommended! this will last me a couple of years... at least
This looks very pink in the pot, but goes on very sheer. I love this color!
This is too bright on my fair-medium skin. I read the reviews here and got it. In the department store light it looked okay. Once I tried it at home, it just looked too much like doll cheeks on me. I used a light hand. Tapped and all that. Still too much. I find Dame to be much prettier and natural. Plus, this is more matte. Dame has a better glow too.
A lovely sheer, natural matt pink, suits my NC25 skin whether I am feeling pale and when I have a little bit of a tan, its a nice basic blusher to own and Im glad I have it but Im pretty sure there are very similar colours out there. Im a blusher junkie (mainly MAC and NARS) and have a big collection so to be honest I dont find myself reaching for it very often at all, its nice to use with a bronzer to add a pop of colour to your cheeks so you dont look too 'flat' and I like having it just incase, but I said i wouldnt buy it again because I really dont think il ever run out of it because like i said I hardly use it and I prefer blushers with a bit of a 'glow' (or very subtle shimmer)
im a c3 in studio fix, and in the summer (select sheer) im a nc 25, this powder is ABSOLUTELY MY HG<3 LIFETIME STUFF!<3 ILOVETHISPOWDER. i was kinda scared because i looked a little PINKISH and a little bit bright yu kno? wen she tried it on me, it was those ulzzangs color, and it fits perfectly for dark skin to light skin ! i LOVE this blush, yu wont know by sitting here just reading this would yu? i highly recommdn yu oing to the mac store and telling the person to try this on. i just wish they had this blush with shimmers too hehe(: continued >>
I like this blush, but it's not the best out there. I find it is difficult to get this just right and it can tend to look slightly patchy or chalky. Still, I like the colour and when you get it right it's a sweet and innocent matte pink. I find some other MAC colours to apply better, and NARS blushes apply beautifully without fail.
This blush leaves a pretty pink flush on my pale NC-20 skin, don't be too heavy handed with it, if you're pale because you will end up looking like a blushing chinadoll. If I use a touch of this, it does wake up my entire face and gives me that look as if I've just been out in the sun or exercising, definite "flushed" look. This is not HG for me, still looking for a more subtle pink flush.
Love this blush! It is a bubblegum pink that is buildable. You can wear as little as you want or as much as you want. And, it still looks great!
