A few months ago, ELF released new blush colors in Fuschia Fusion and Pink Passion ($3). Of course I had to get them so I could have ALL the blushes they make. When I opened my package, I was shocked, and a little scared, of how BRIGHT these pink blushes were. The pictures do not do them justice. I'm not much of a pink blush gal, so I shrugged and figured these would just sit in the back of my drawer.
Fuschia Fusion is mega sparkly. I'm talkin' theres some major glitter going on, gold glitter to pe precise (Uh, better than silver right?). It's really pretty to look at, but I've yet to put this on my cheeks. I do NOT want glittery cheeks. Pigmentation on this gem is amazing. I've heard some people say that this is a dupe for NARS' Super Orgasm... but I really don't think so. It's got glitter, yeah, but the color's off.
Note: It still bothers me that ELF spelled fuchsia wrong. Seriously?
Pink Passion is a TRUE bright hot pink. I mean, this thing is BRIGHT and HOT PINK. Two combos I don't want on my face. It's gorgeous, but seemingly not for me... or so I thought.
Application is a completely different story. Pink passion comes on a lot sheerer, and a lot less scary. You really have to build up the color. Instead of a clown-esque look, you get a nice soft pink. It's actually very wearable (I wore it today, tee hee). It's very pretty and it makes me happy =). I felt super daring because I abhore hot pink. Fuschia Fusion still had major glitter. The color is nice, but the glitter freaks me out, glitter-lovers REJOICE. Yes, needless to say, I haven't tried this on my cheeks yet.
Overall, I really like the new blushes. They're really cute, and it's a nice addition to the plum/coral/peach blushes they made before. If anything, Pink Passion is worth a try.
