Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Blush

when i attended this year's The Makeup Show in los angeles i bought this gem-- HD Microfinish Blush from Make Up For Ever. i had heard a bit about it before going, and since i am such a fan of the HD Foundation, it was on my radar of must-try items. once i did, well... :)

first, i have to say a little goes a long way. and i don't mean just a pump. i mean like 1/4 of a pump. i mean a don't-even-press-down-for-a-full-pump-or-you'll-have-to-share-with-your-neighbors long way. it's very pigmented but still manages to look sheer and natural when applied.

take a look...

typically, i use this much for both cheeks. really.

i dot, dot (on each cheek), then blend. if more is needed, then i apply a little more to work with. so far, this amount has been sufficient for me.

the texture of HD Microfinish Blush is light, blends beautifully and stays put. it washes off easily and i'm thrilled that it will last me forever (not really, but you know what i mean). p.s., the color i have is #9 In the Spotlight.

Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Blush is now available at sephora.com

Becca-- i wish you did too! hopefully soon, huh? :) thanks! xo

Pink-- yes, i do think it's worth spending $25 on. the finish and the fact that a little goes such a long way is what sold me. i did buy this myself, though my rate was a little less since i was at a trade show. if you have a Sephora near you that has the blush in stock, ask one of the staff members to make you a sample to take home. it's the best way to decide for yourself if you want to splurge on the full size product. :) xo
