Blushed: Blush Terrybly Ultimate Radiance (Sexy Plum)

This is proof positive that more expensive is not better. By Terry’s new Shimmer Blush for Holiday 2011 looks absolutely divine, but leaves much to be desired in the performance department.

Absolutely and completely stunning, right? Well, I can’t show you swatches because the transfer is nearly nonexistent. There’s little to no product pickup… just a sheer ghost of a shimmer. This might work on the palest of skin tones, but that’s about it. It’s extremely sheer. I feel like it’ll work best layered over a heavier blush, or to modify the color of another blush. But by itself, on my skin, it’s practically invisible.

And for $70, I need it to do more than just transfer a faint shimmer. Seriously.
