From the Smashbox website- Inspired by our best-selling Halo powder! Get a luminous, lit-from-within flush with our new long-wearing blush. The signature grinder shaves off just the right amount, so you’ll get the perfect flush every time. Buildable color allows for full control-dust on more color for even rosier radiance.
So basically this is a grinder blush! I think I’ve seen something similar from perhaps NYX but it isn’t common. The goal is a mess free & user friendly application of blush! After opening the box you’ll see a round, black Smashbox case that houses the blush & a slim mirror. It feels sturdy. You get a label over the grinder as well so you should start with a nice clean blush!
After removing the label you will see the actual holes for the grinder. See the outside ring that matches the blush shade? That is what you turn to grind the powder up! Don’t turn it much! I did above & you can see…that’s a lot of blush folks! I will say that I tend to use a bigger blush brush so this small opening isn’t the easiest to grab product & tap of excess. I like the idea of this blush much more than other loose shades however! I never travel with loose blushes but I would travel with this one!
The color itself is a coral-y pink. Beautiful. It is super buildable. You can start with a sheer wash like the blended swatch above or go nuts with the full kick of color! Whatever your heart desires! I find this blush to stay put for about 7 hours looking like the first application & then it gradually (& naturally) fades. That is a great wear time for me personally!
Overall, a lovely blush! Pretty color, sheer or built up! This blush retails for $24.00 from Sephora, Nordstrom, & the Smashbox website. Next time you’re interested in a new blush (or like to own allllll the blushes like me!) then check this one out!
