My Experience with Lorac Spectra Color Source Buildable Blush:

Packaging:  I love how modern and sleek this packaging is! The round gunmetal blush compact has a see-through lid and color-coordinated sticker on the bottom for easy storage.

It has a magnetic closure. The compact case has a very expensive feel but it does attract finger prints. The only con here is that there is no mirror in the compact, but I don’t mind that.

Texture:  If you are familiar with Lorac eyeshadows, you can already get an idea how these blushes feel like. They have the same incredibly smooth and soft feel. They are not chalky or dry, but just like the eyeshadows, these do tend to kick up powder when you dip your brush in. It is best to tap off excess product from the brush before applying.

Shade:  The shade “Spectra” is a gorgeous pale pink shade. The undertone is neither too warm nor too cool, hence it will complement most skin tones, ranging from light to medium. Deeper skin tones might have difficulty getting this color to show up on their skin.

Pigmentation:  True to its name, these blushes are buildable. I feel like I have great control with these blushes and it is not easy to go overboard. You can give yourself a subtle flush of color in one layer or build it up to full intensity and get bright bold cheeks in 2-3 layers. The layers apply seamlessly over one another and it never goes on patchy or uneven.

Finish:  These blushes come in 2 finishes – matte and satin (clearly indicated on the packaging). I have picked up 3 shades from this range and all of them are matte finish. I love using matte blushes as I can customize the finish by wearing it on its own or adding a highlighter on top. Even with the matte finish, it does not look flat on the skin.

I love pairing this blush with a similar shade of pink lipstick and it lends itself to this whole romantic feminine makeup look 😛

Staying Power:  The staying power of this blush is average. I do notice fading around 5-6 hours into the wear. It does not accentuate pores or dryness on my skin.

Overall, I love these new blushes by Lorac. I wouldn’t say these are “perfection” in a pan and the best blushes I have used, but these are good enough to be worth the money. This particular range has a beautiful array of shades with different finishes. I will recommend these blushes to all of you 🙂
