Continuing with the reviews of my Too Faced Love Flush Long-Lasting 16-Hour Blushes which were released as a part of Too Faced Fall 2015 Collection. This review will be on the shade “How Deep Is Your Love?”.
About The Product:
A long-wear, fade- and smudge-proof formula that keeps your cheeks perfectly flushed for up to 16 hours.
What it does:
Blush all day and night with the flush of true love. Each of the six pigment-rich, high-impact shades deliver a pretty, pop of color to any skintone with bold color payoff. The long-wear formula is enriched with buttery soft pigments that bond with skin and take on a weightless, suspended look that lasts for up to 16 hours—so you don’t have to worry about reapplication throughout the day. From a soft dusty nude hue with fine gold sparkle to a watermelon pink, you can create an array of looks for daytime and nighttime wear.

What else you need to know:

My Experience with Too Faced How Deep Is Your Love? Love Flush Long-Lasting 16-Hour Blush:
I absolutely adore the packaging. These blushes come in little heart shaped compact with a decent size mirror. The compact is very lightweight, but is not very sturdy. The outer case if prone to scratching. There is no applicator provided. The compact is a bit difficult to open especially if you have big hands or long nails.
These love flush blushes are very smooth and silky powder. They do not feel gritty (which is true even for the shades which contain shimmer) and do not feel or look powdery or chalky on the skin. They look very natural on the skin and settle in beautifully and give an appearance that you are truly blushing.
The pigmentation of these blushes varies according to the shade. The deeper shades having a strong pigmentation whereas the lighter having the poorest, but all these shades have a quality of being buildable pigmentation if you apply multiple layers. The layers build nicely without looking patchy. The trick here is to start with less and gradually build on color which helps avoid patchiness which would happen if you pick up too much product at once. This shade “How Deep Is Your Love?” has medium pigmentation. It shows up nicely on the skin, but I have to apply 2 layers.
This shade is described as watermelon pick which is a very accurate description. The shade is deep almost reddish pink. This shade lacks any shimmer, but still imparts the same satiny sheen on the skin which is true to most shades in this range. This gives the skin an appearance of being youthful and healthy.
I was not really impressed with the staying power of these blushes. On me, they faded quite quickly especially if I had applied a light dusting with a wispy brush. I barely got 4 hours of wear before the blush faded almost completely.
I did find that by tweaking my technique of application and applying this blush by really buffing it into the skin with a dense brush in circular motion I could stretch the staying power to about 6-7 hours which is still nowhere close to the ’16 hours’ claim the company has made.
Overall, these are good blushes, but they are not my favorite. I have used much better blushes in the past which have impressed me and this product is not on that level yet, performance wise. These blushes rank decent in my books and I must admit the cuteness factor is through the roof which kind of compensated for the performance. These will make an excellent gift item.
