Buxom True Hue Blushes + Swatches

Coming this February to a Sephora near you: the new line of pressed blushes from Buxom!

Starting in a little less than two weeks, Buxom (from Bare Escentuals) will be launching eight finely milled, pressed blushes that will light up your face! I was able to get my hands on four of the colors: Luviate, Euphoria, Rendezvous, and Swept Away.



These colors are seriously pigmented and so, so smooth. Because they are so pigmented, you'll want to apply them with a fluffy blush brush, instead of a tightly packed angled brush.


You'll want to take it slow with most of these colors to avoid overdoing it. In all honesty, this is a problem I would rather have than those dry blushes that leave no trace of color behind.


I love Luviate. It reminds me of a more gentle version of Orgasm (by NARS). I love sculpting my cheeks using a combination of Euphoria, Swept Away and Luviate.

It's a fresh look that wears well. Because this is such a finely milled powder, be sure to prep your face appropriately before applying.

As with any powders, dry skin patches will hold on to more color than other areas. Since they do pack such a pigment punch, you'll want to make sure you are well-blended!

Check these out from Sephora for $24 each, beginning in February.

  1. These look beautiful on you! I'm glad I saved the Sephora gift card I got for Christmas....I know what I will spend it on!

    Thank you!

  2. You really made those shades blend well together!  At first glance - when I see the shade "Euphoria" - it looks VERY orange... but when you blended them - they look Fab!

  3. Thank you, Karigold! It's nice to see such pigmented blushes!

  4. These blushes look absolutely amazing!  The packaging and colors remind me of Illamasqua blushes.
