Blush On Rouge Powder Blush
5.0

These are inexpensive, pigmented, and long lasting pro-quality blushes that are perfect for the more experienced makeup user, as they have a somewhat high learning curve. The packaging is simple but deceptive, disguising that these products are dupes for NARS and MAC quality blushes but sold for a whopping $4.50 per pan. I own the 12 pan palette from Camera Ready Cosmetics where 6 of the blushes are cool toned while 6 of the rest are warm toned. I really love these because the blushes are true to color and they blend really well as long you are careful with the initial placement. The lightest touch will be enough product for your face, which means these blushes will last forever even with everyday usage. Sometimes I use two brushes when I use these blushes; one for placement, and another clean one for blending. Ironically, this is one of the few times where synthetic/stippling brushes might serve you better than using natural hair, as they will pick up less product (and that's what you want for this kind of blush!). On the color selection, the sky is the limit. For example, the shade Naturelle is a perfect soft apricot, reminiscent of the youthful makeup often applied on Korean actresses who advertise in brands like Innisfree or The Face shop. On the other end of the spectrum, there is the shade Red, which is a spot on dupe for NARS Exhibit A that so happens to be perfect for darker skin colors with warm undertones. There are also unusual blushes with colors not usually produced by most mainstream brands like lavender (Misty Plum), fuchsia (Mulberry), and cinnamon (Sienna). On how it looks: The blushes come in shimmery, satin, or matte finishes. They look awesome on me and last pretty much as long as I need it to until its time for me to take off my makeup. On people of color, they look fantastic. I can even sheer them out for the slightest hint of color if I use a blue squirrel blush! That said, I don't find this to be a very modern product if you compare this to the blushes that are recommended today (ex. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush, Glossier Cloud Paints, Surratt Artistique Blush, ect.) This is an old-school Hollywood product that has been around for decades and were used for TV and movie sets. Artists back then had to use a heavier hand with makeup because that was required for the cameras to pick up color. These pigmented blushes reflect that style of makeup, which may be incompatible with the everyday makeup user in 2019 who likes the dewy, no-makeup makeup trend. The finish of these blushes won't look effortlessly elegant if you're not great at diffusing blush. Some people might not want that amount of effort and that's OK! For me personally, there are certain segments of makeup where I don't care about the brand or packaging as long as they do the job. And La Femme does that for me when it comes to blush; they have a wide selection of colors for all skin tones, a long lasting finish, and relatively affordable. P.S. If you're a drag queen or cosplayer, I really do think these blushes are ideal as they're perfect for costume makeup.

These are worthy purchases. i have Rust and Clove. Both are extremely pigmented. For precise applications/effects these are not ideal you would need more expensive brands to deliver that. But for an all over intense colour and soft glow they are ideal. Can even be used as blush with a careful touch.

HG BLUSHES! The only reason I buy other brands if there is a color that La Femme doesn't do. They are so pigmented yet look so beautiful! Just remember to buff and blend the blush well, and build with tiny amounts of color at a time. And, the price! It's like the perfect BAE blush - makes you beautiful, gives you the high quality high-end like results you deserve and understands that your budget is important <3 The colors "Peach" and "orange" are both matte and MY TOP FAVOURITES. Orange looks so natural and beautifully flushed (if applied and blended properly), and not garish at all! For reference, I am C6 in Mac Face & Body. PLEASE BUY THESE, LOVE THESE AND THESE WILL NEVER FAIL YOU <3
