Besides the Color Lip Lasts, I also bought a few Sephora Collection Colorful blushes to test out, in both formulas.
From the old line (now discontinued), I have Orange Pop (a matte orange) and Fuchsia Flash (a matte fuchsia), part of the Music Festival kit (still available, $22, values $79).
The kit also has a Glossy gloss in Marquisette (clear with gold glitters), a Jumbo liner 12hr wear waterproof in Peacock Blue Shimmer (teal) and a set of ombre green bobby pins, as pictured. The kit is a fun and economical way to check out more Sephora Collection products all in one go.
With the reformulated/ revamped Color blush line, I got Over the Moon (far right), described as a violet, reg. $19 – for comparison.
Both formulas claim natural and long lasting effect but the old line also mentions hydrating and paraben free on the packaging. Honestly, I can’t tell the difference in formula based on how these blushes perform on me. It would probably boil down to the colours you choose.
Size wise, the new blushes have slightly more product (0.12oz/ 3.5g vs. 0.11oz/ 3.2g) with less bulky compact (see below, on the left).
The blushes go on sheer and give off a natural hint of colour on the cheeks. Easy to blend, buildable and last through the day just fine. While being matte, they are not chalky or dry looking.
I also want to show you the swatches using my finger, to show off how beautiful they are in concentrated form, with and without flash.
Fuchsia Flash is the most pigmented shade but Orange Pop gives you a summery coral pink glow. Over the Moon would be more picky, depending on the skin tone, but the colour is quite unique in my stash.
Again, I would love to get more Colorful blushes if the price is closer to the $10 mark, but I am happy with the ones I got.
