Review: La Femme Blushes

Ordered these blushes a few months ago because of the reviews/rave's its been getting from makeup addicts alike. These blushes have over 30 colors and go for $2.50 (pan only) or $3.00 with the casing. Can I just say WOW? They are extremely pigmented, meaning only one swipe with your brush will give a tremendous amount, ALSO meaning that these blushes will last forever. They give me 8 hours of wear time & the consistency is very smooth. Me being the "one is never enough type" I bought a palette for $45, tax and tip including. FYI These blushes look untouched despite my obsession with them because I only tap my brush once.

(L-R: Purple Passion, Terracotta, Mocha, Indian Rose, Mandarin Red, Cinnabar)

  1. Peach: Matte color, very good for work, goes well with heavy smokey eyes. Reminds me of MAC Blushbaby.
  2. Coral Spice: Contains shimmer (no disco ball) and is one of my favorites. Comparable to the cult favorite NARS orgasm and is perfect for the summer.
  3. Flamingo Pink: has very cool undertones, more compatible for ladies with a lighter skin tone. 
  4. Bordeaux: dominantly brown/purple & perfect for ladies with darker skin tone
  5. Dusty Rose: brown/pink undertones, It's a neutral color on me when lightly dusted, this also will look very good with smokey eyes
  6. Golden Sunset: Also one of my favorites, I imagine this working well with dark red lipstick (haven't tried it yet since it's still summer). Perfect for fall.
  7. Purple Passion: This might not be everyone's cup of tea, but it works great as an eyeshadow. It also works beautiful as blush when you want the focus on your face to be your cheeks. Compliments a nude lip and neutral eyeshadow.
  8. Terracota: this color is my favorite for the summer, it has gold & bronze shimmers.
  9. Mocha: Also compatible for smokey eyes, goes on neutral on ladies with tanned skin and dark pink with ladies who have lighter skin tones.
  10. Indian Rose: a matte, very cool,  rose-pink
  11. Mandarin Red: very bright, cool toned rosy pink as well. Perfect for the summer.
  12. Cinnabar:  Matte/Satin texture, Peach/Cinnamon. This can also  double as a bronzer.
