Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush Audacious Plum & Sensuous Rose


I've had these blushes for years but for some reason never got around to swatching them on this blog! They are great quality blushes and beautiful flattering colors, they are expensive but I think worth it.

Sensuous Rose is a terracotta with a very subtle pink/coral undertone. I got this to replace my old favorite blush for a good 15+ years, CoverGirl Iced Cappucino. They are very similar except the CoverGirl has a sheen to it, different smell, and parabens. I also prefer that the estee lauder version is in a bigger pan which makes it easier to get your whole blush brush into, and that it is more pigmented.

Audacious Plum is a purple/pink mid tone plum color, on me it leans more pink then it looks in the pan. But still has a cool toned mauve-y-ness to it. My olive skin tone tends to warm up all blushes however so it may not happen on you if you are more pink toned naturally.
