Too Faced Love Flush BlushesSaturday, March 26, 2016
Too Faced is a brand that many of my friends love and talk about but until receiving some items for Christmas I hadn't ever tried, I'd always wanted to try them but hadn't ever purchased anything then for Christmas one of my friends kindly bought me an eyeshadow palette (see blog post about that ) and my daughters kindly bought me 2 of the Love Flush blushes.
I adore anything heart shaped and also love blush so the Love Flush blushes were something I loved as soon as I saw them and I was so pleased when I received 2 of them for Christmas.
I have the shades Love Hangover (left) and Justify My Love (right) both of which are perfect shades for me, pink and coral are my favourite blush shades and ones I wear all the time.
The packaging is absolutely stunning, I adore heart shaped things anyway so was bound to love them but I think the packaging would be appealing to lots of people, the packaging is plastic with the too faced logo on the front in gold and although the packaging is plastic it feels sturdy and looks lovely and not cheap at all, there is a mirror inside which is really handy and great for travel.
L - Love Hangover & R - Justify My Love
Inside the packaging the blush is stunning and embossed with the Too Faced logo and rabbits with leaves/flowers around the edge and dots, it is so pretty and even after several uses the pattern is still clearly visible.
Love Hangover is a stunning peach/coral shade, I adore coral blush and especially for the spring and summer months, I do wear it all year round but more so in the spring and summer months. Love Hangover has what I would say is a satin finish, it does have some shimmer to it but not too much at all, it isn't going to give you disco ball esque cheeks but there is some shimmer to it, I do still wear highlight with it and it doesn't look out of place (I am wearing highlight in the photograph below) The blush looks quite dark in the pan but it transfers onto the skin as a beautiful peach/coral shade, a light hand is definitely needed when applying the blush as it is extremely pigmented, it adds a beautiful flush of colour to the cheeks and is absolutely stunning. If you like peach/coral blush shades, definitely give this a try, you won't be disappointed.

Justify My Love
Justify My Love is a cool toned pink shade and is beautiful, I adore pink blush and wear it all year round, as with coral shades I do wear pink blush more over the spring and summer but Justify My Love is a beautiful pink that can be worn all year round, it looks amazing and compliments so many different make up looks. As with Love Hangover it looks quite dark in the pan but transfers onto the skin as a lovely pink flush, it is extremely pigmented so I use a light hand but you can use more if you like a more striking blush look. The blush does contain shimmer but isn't overly shimmery and highlight can still be worn without looking OTT on the shimmer front ( I am wearing highlight in the photograph below) If pink blush is something you wear, you'll love Justify My Love, it really is a beautiful blush.
Wearing Justify My Love (I am also wearing highlight)
I absolutely adore both blushes, they apply effortlessly and blend beautifully onto the skin and the wear time is incredible, Too Faced states 16 hour wear, unfortunately I don't wear my make up for 16 hours but have worn both blushes for around 11/12 hours and both looked exactly as they did when applied so I would say they have excellent wear time. The pigmentation of both is incredible and they both feel and look lovely on the skin, they both have a satin finish with just the right amount of shimmer and neither accentuated my pores, I would highly recommend both shades and the Love Flush blushes in general, they do come in 6 shades so if the shades I have aren't for you, there are other shades available. Too Faced also sell a Love Flush Blush Wardrobe which is a palette containing all 6 shades and is a great way of trying all the shades available.
You can purchase the Love Flush blushes online at the Debenhams website HERE for £25.00 or on the Too Faced website (which does ship to the UK) HERE for £20.00 and the Love Flush Blush Wardrobe is available on the Too Faced website HERE for £27.00.
