Essence Blush Up! ($3.99) is a beautiful ombre powder blush that comes in two colors. I bought the color Heat Wave which is a bright orange and pink combo.
For the price, this is a nice generous size. I really like the clear plastic packaging so you can always see the pretty colors inside.
The powder formula is pretty smooth and blendable. It does kick up a lot of excess powder so be sure to tap off your brush before applying to your cheeks.
For as bright as this blush is in the pan, I’m a little disappointed in its pigmentation. I was expecting great color payoff when I first swatched it but it takes several swipes to get a lot of color.
However, when applied with a brush, Heat Wave is plenty pigmented for my fair skin. When both colors are combined, they make a nice peachy color on my cheeks.
