I am absolutely smitten with the Kylie Cosmetics Kylighters, so I was even more excited when Kylie Jenner teased the new Kylie Cosmetics Pressed Powder Blushes! They released 5 gorgeous shades, perfect for a whole range of skin tones. If you are interested in my review, then keep reading below!
Kylie Cosmetics Pressed Powder Blushes Review
The packaging of these Kylie Cosmetics Blushes is very similar to the Kylighter packaging! Each blush comes in a matte outer carton that is a similar shade to the blush itself. They have Kylie embossed on the outside, in a similar shade but it is glossy, so it is very subtle. As always, all the ingredients etc, are listed on the back.
The packaging of the blushes themselves is made out of thick cardboard and has a magnetic closure. They each have a good quality mirror which is a nice touch for travel. The blushes also have a good weight and feel expensive.
The Kylie Cosmetics blushes are sold exclusively on the Kylie Cosmetics website for $20USD each or $98USD for the bundle of all five shades. International shipping is generally $14.95USD, but you may encounter customs charges depending on your country.
Each blush has 0.26 oz or 7.5 g of product. This is comparable to MAC Powder Blushes which are $23USD for 0.21 oz or the Becca Cosmetics Luminous Blushes that are $34USD for 0.2 oz.
These are matte pressed powder blushes that have buildable coverage. Even though they are powder, they almost have a creamy/velvet-like feel to them. The quality is actually very good. They do not settle into any fine lines or exaggerate pores etc.
In terms of pigmentation, these blushes are not intensely pigmented in one swipe, however, I personally do not like intense blushes! I like the fact that I have more control with these blushes, and can build them up to how I like. For me, there is nothing worse than accidentally overdoing the blush, and having to try and tone it down.
They apply really smoothly to the skin and blend really well. I found that the results will depend on the type of brush you use. I found that synthetic brushes picked up the product quite nicely!
There are currently 5 shades. The shade names also may induce blushing!
Hopeless Romantic (matte orange red)
Hot and Bothered (bright pinky coral)
X Rated (subdued tangerine)
Virginity (vibrant warm pink)
Barely Legal (soft baby pink)
I think that most of these shades will suit most skin tones. I did find, however, that the shade Barely Legal was a little light for my skin tone, but would look stunning on skin tones lighter than mine.
Who are these for?
If you are someone like me, who likes a subtle yet buildable blush, then these are perfect for you. I love that they are not intensely pigmented because it means I will get more wear out of them. I have more control, and there is less chance for me to ruin my makeup by overdoing the blush. These are also perfect for those new to makeup or blush.
If you are someone who likes blushes with shimmer, these are matte, and you may need to use a nice highlighter like the Kylighters on top.
I am really happy with the quality and formula of these blushes. I saw on Instagram that many people were disappointed with the subtlety of these blushes but for me, I think this is the reason why I like these blushes! The subtlety of the blushes means that I have more control of the intensity!
