I've been on a blush buying frenzy lately and only in the past few months have stepped outside of my normal matte powder blush comfort zone. I had previously shied away from anything non-matte because one of my first makeup purchases as a young girl discovering makeup was a cheapy hot pink blush with craft sized glitter. Like many girls my age I put my on my makeup on the bus on the way to school. Unfortunately I completely over-applied the blush and had somehow managed to get glitter over my entire body. One boy told me a looked like an um, lady of the night, and it was enough to turn me off ANY blushes for years.
But my self imposed ban on things sparkly has thankfully come to an end. And Estee Lauder's Radiant Peach is a far cry from the hot pink glitterbomb of my early teens.
Radiant Peach is an orangey, peachy coral with a gorgeous gold sheen that gives a beautiful glow and doesn't make my pores look like moon craters. I have a confession to make. I didn't like NARS Orgasm. I bought and returned it the next day because it was just "meh" to me. Radiant Peach is exactly what I wished Orgasm had been.
