The Smashbox Crush on Blush Palette is a limited edition Nordstrom exclusive, but it’s also available directly on the Smashbox site. The palette is $45 for 6 shades. Four shades are 0.64 oz and the two Soft Lights formula are 0.15 oz.
All of the shades are pretty pigmented and do not kick up powder.
Shimmer is a really pretty baby pink highlight. I love the soft texture and it blends easily, without emphasizing pores. I thought it might be too dark for my pale skin to use as a highlight, but it works well. It could also be a pretty blush topper.
Warm Apricot is a peachy pink blush with shimmer. The texture is slightly harder than the others, but it performs very well.
Guava is a slightly more orange version of Warm Apricot with a more satin finish.
Suntan is a nice matte bronzer. It is not too orange, but it is definitely not as cool as Benefit Hoola, so I don’t think many will be able to use it as a contour. The texture is nice and it blends very easily.
Rosy has the hardest texture. It is a little difficult to pick up the product. It is a beautiful, dark, rosy shade, so it may benefit the heavy-handed to be unable to go overboard with this one. It has sparkles in the pan, but they must be prone to fallout because they are virtually untraceable on the skin.
Rosette is a lighter rosy pink with a matte finish. It performs beautifully on the skin. This is probably the most ordinary shade in the palette, but it’s a winner.
I am happy to have the Smashbox Crush on Blush Palette. The packaging is a hefty cardboard with a magnetic closure, so I think it will be nice for travel. I got it from the Smashbox site with my pro discount which makes it completely worth it to me.
