I Heart This Blush- Stila Make Me Blush Cheek Color and swatches

Apparently Sunday was my day to buy heart-embossed blushes because I bought Stila's Make Me Blush AND both shades of Physician's Formula Happy Booster blushes.  I was super excited to find the Stila blush at my local Sephora because it was limited edition and sold out on Sephora's website and Stila's.  With limited edition items I'm so afraid of getting sucked into "OMG! HAFTA buy before it disapears FOREVER!!!!" mentality (a la MAC's LE collections) that I put off buying it because I want to make sure I really want it.  Of course I end up waiting too long and it does disappear forever or I have to spend a fortune for it on eBay.  For example, I regret not buying Kat Von D's Memento Mori palette so much.  I keep a look out for it on eBay and the last one I saw sold for over $80!!  For a palette that retailed for less than $40!  Yikes.

So I'm glad I was able to get my hands on this blush, especially since I'm blush obsessed at the moment.  So does the blush meet my expectations?  Lets find out!

The 4 gold hearts are just an over spray.  It is super glittery, but wipes off easily.  I just wiped mine off with a cotton ball.

Here is the blush with the over spray wiped off.

Taken in the sun
 The first swatch is just the over spray and then it is the over spray mixed with the blush.  The third swatch is all the heart colors mixed together and swatched heavily while the last swatch is the blush blended out.

The color is a very pretty and flattering pinky coral shimmer.  On pale skin you need to make sure not too apply too much because it is very easy to overdo.  For this cheek swatch I actually had to wash it off and reapply because I put waaay too much the first time.  This is still more blush than I usually wear, but I wanted to clearly show the color.  The eye shadows are by Persephone Minerals and are from this post.

  • Great pigmentation
  • Cute design
  • Overly-glittery gold spray wipes off easily
  • Good price if you can find it for $14
  • Non-powdery texture that blends well
  • Need to be careful not to apply too much on fair skin
  • Limited edition item and can be difficult to find
  • I bought mine at my local Sephora store.  Ask you SA to see if they have any in stock.
  • If you really HAVE to have it I've seen them on eBay.

Thank you for reading and have a great day/night/whatever!


  1. That looks like my kind of blush! Very pretty but I have a feeling I won't be hunting it down. We don't even have Sephora here anyway, lol. And wow I can't wait for my Persephone Minerals order to arrive!

  2. I am a blush feen!! this is a gorgeous blush!! physian formula happy booster blush is similar to this and I absolutly adore it! I did a review on it..I luv ur eyes here too..I'm a sucker for oranges :D

    It is pretty, but yeah, probably not worth the effort of trying to get it. It seems like its pretty easy to dupe blushes. And I can't wait to see what you ordered from Persephone Minerals and the awesome EOTDs you'll do.

    @ Jess
    You made me fall in love more with orange and peach shadows because of your Sleek review! I just bought the PF happy booster ones too, but haven't tried them yet. Do you ever use Indie makeup? I'm not a huge fan of loose shadows because I'm so clumsy, but Persephone Minerals is worth it!


Thank you so much for your comments! I appreciate them all and read every one!
