I can’t believe I’ve haven’t already written about Sunday Riley’s powder blush in Blushing. It’s been a staple in my makeup routine for the past two years or more. It’s one of those perfect basics that’s worth the investment, because it’s incredibly versatile and it lasts a very long time.
Here’s an official product photograph. Blushing is a very natural rose shade; I’ve seen it described as “cool,” but I think it’s closer to being a true neutral.
The packaging is Sunday Riley’s usual black-and-gold compact (with a mirror).
And here’s a daylight photo that I took myself. In some lights, Blushing does look a bit more mauve; in others, it almost has a hint of coral. I like cosmetics shades that are difficult to pin down, because they tend to be subtle and adaptable on my skin.
Like most of Sunday Riley’s pressed-powder products, this blush is well-pigmented and very finely milled. I apply it with a fluffy brush blush and I never have any streaking or fallout. Blushing wears well throughout the day without fading or oxidizing. It’s really the most natural blush shade I’ve ever used (bear in mind that I have a light, cool-to-neutral complexion).
The Sunday Riley line is available for $30 at Bergdorf Goodman, Barneys, and Neiman Marcus, as well as through the Sunday Riley website (finally!).
Product source: I received this particular piece as a gift with purchase at Bergdorf, but I’d already purchased and used up an entire Blushing before that.
