I really hope I don’t drop one of these blushes by The Estée Edit because…
- I have a penchant for dropping things. I don’t know why, but when I’m applying makeup, gravity always gets involved, and something usually lands on my foot (P.S., it usually hurts).
- And I also have a feeling that if I were to drop one of these compacts, the precious pan inside it would break, triggering a loud WAHHH!
These silver sweethearts are called The Barest Blushes by The Estée Edit. They’re $28 each and available in four shades.
The packaging may look sturdy, but really, it’s not. It’s lightweight plastic and, truth be told, feels fairly flimsy. I fear these won’t be able to handle the rigors of my butterfinger life.
(Seriously, every single piece of makeup I own? — on the floor at least 20 times a day. Totally not kidding.)
Even so, what lives within these delicate darlings is pure gold, and that’s why I keep wearing ’em.
These aptly named blushes came out with the rest of The Estée Edit line earlier this year. The two shades I’ve been wearing the most — Coy Coral and Ember Glow — look completely natural. I’m talking about that heat-rushing-to-your cheeks kind of flush, and they’re totally spot-on if you like a natural cheek look.
Yes, if I were ever in a position where all of my goodies were hanging out and all eyes were on me (also known as “my nightmare”), my cheeks would probably turn a shade similar to Coy Coral. ?
These have a fine shimmery golden overspray on them that disappears after you’ve used them a few times and, not gonna lie, I don’t mind that they disappear, because I’ve been into matte, and low-level shine, cheeks lately.
The soft, silky powder formula reminds me of BECCA blushes, and these also have that same easy-to-use vibe, which I’m into.
Yeah, dude…I’m into that easy blush life. Like, I don’t mind being challenged when I’m reading or working or assisting my husky tabby, but I don’t want to be challenged by my cheek color, ya know? Nope, not gonna do it.
I want to be able to tap a little on, erase any edges with a few swooshes of my brush, and get on with my life. And that’s how it is to use these beautiful blushes.
I don’t see myself quitting these anytime soon, not even with the packaging woes.
I just hope I don’t drop them, oy!
