The Kardashian Beauty Radiant Ombre Blush ($9.99) come in a variety of 6 different color combos. Each blush compact includes three different shades in a really cute star pattern. I picked up three of them; Tender, Aglow and Torch.
- Tender – a very light pale pink with hints of purple
- Aglow – a medium pink color with hints of mauve
- Torch – a medium pink very similar to Aglow but with no mauve undertones
The compacts are fairly large in size, about the size of my palm. Each one contains 0.28oz of product which is a good amount. NYX powder blushers are half the size (0.14oz) for a comparision.
I bought these right after I heard a YouTube beauty guru rave about them in a review video. I have to say though that I wasn’t as wowed by them as she was. They do give the cheeks a nice glow but they weren’t as pigmented as I hoped they would be as a blush.
I have fair skin so it’s usually not hard for me to get a blush to show up. Tender to me is pretty much pointless as a blush. Even after trying to build it up several times I still could hardly get it to show up.
Anyone with darker than fair or light skin will not even see this on the cheeks. Yes, I could use Tender as strictly a highlight but I already have so many powder highlights so this will be going back to Ulta.
(Swatched heavily with multiple applications.)
The quality of the blush is nice. It does have a silky smooth feel and finish. I do not have any problems with them being too powdery or chalky.
I really hate that these did not wow me. They are so adorable that I hate to take them all back, however I know I’ll never reach for them. They’ll just end up at the bottom of my drawer so I’d rather take the $30 and spend it on something I really love.
