One Shade Glams All: This trio of shimmering shades blends to create the perfect flush for any skin tone at any age, year-round.
Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush gives a gorgeous glow that really is quite close to perfect. With three shades that can be worn individually or swirled together, Sweethearts Blush offers just enough illumination for a romantic flush. As part of the Spring 2013 release from the brand, I think this blush is the perfect shade for winter as well. The slightly cool pink tones of the left color work well December through May. And the heart-shaped box? It’s pretty hard to resist!
The three-in-one packaging is appealing to the eye and makes using the blush on-the-go easy, but it has its drawbacks. Mixing the three shades is not a problem. However the size doesn’t allow much room for a standard blush brush to pick up one color at a time. To reach only one shade, it’s necessary to condense brush bristles, use a very narrow brush, or fingers.
The most easily transferred shade is the cool pink on the left of the heart. It is shimmery and works well with the berry-toned Lip Cremes Too Faced also released for spring. The center shade is by far the lightest and requires quite a bit of product to give the above coverage on my current NC37 skin. The last shade of the trio is on the right of the heart and is a beautiful shimmery shade that I think will be especially complementary to those with warmer skin. Blended together the new shade most resembles the last two with a bit of the cool blue of the first.
Summary: Because of its four colors and unique requirements for application, Too Faced Sweethearts Blush works especially well for travelling or touch-ups on the go. It is in convenient packaging, the colors are universal, it requires travel-sized brushes or fingers, and individual shades match a multitude of makeup looks.
