Maybelline Limited Edition Blushes in Stage Glow, Pressworthy Pink and Ravishing Rouge Swatches

I'm such a great blogger. *sarcasm* Yeah, I'm really behind in swatching things. I shouldn't be allowed to buy limited edition items as I never post about them while they're still available! But  I have heard about a few people finding these blushes on clearance at Walgreens, so it might be worth checking out there.

The bad thing about these being limited edition is that they're actually pretty nice.  They're basically 2 blushes and a highlighter. The highlighter (Stage Glow) is pretty sheer and sparkly with larger pieces of sparkle throughout. It is a tad TOO sparkly for my tastes, as I prefer a sheen on my cheeks, not straight out shimmer. The pink blush (Pressworthy Pink) is also pretty sparkly, but I can buff the sparkles out enough to where I'm happy with it. The color is bright, happy pink that you can build up to the intensity you desire. The red blush (Ravishing Rouge) is extremely intense. It doesn't have as much sparkle, but the pigmentation is INTENSE. If I wear this one I need to apply it with duo-fiber stippling brush. All of these were silky smooth, and non chalky with great pigmentation. I was really impressed with the quality of these blushes. None of the shade stole my heart, though. I would have liked to see a peachier, or more color blush, too.

I found these in a display at my local drugstore awhile ago and don't remember how much they cost because they were on sale for 40% off that week. Haha, I'm just about worthless! I wasn't going to post this as these probably are no longer available and I'm completely unhelpful, but figured it might help someone out there, so I might as well!


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

  4. Okay, I LOVE the red one! I'm just as pale as you, if not more so, so it would never work for me, but for some reason I LOVE it!

    Maybe it's because when I naturally blush, I blush RED, not pink or peach.

  5. Ooh I really love the red one! I like the fact it's quite a dark, vampy red, which is very unusual for a blush! Wow, so cool!
