Please let me clarify that I bought the Rock & Republic (RR) blushes BEFORE the Low-Buy so they don't count (?). As I mention in my last post, I got BB palette when I was on vacation in Miami...So yeah.
Anyways, here are the group pic of my RR blushes. They have fun names like NARS!
I got X-Rated, Foreplay, Spank, Immoral (FAVE), and Bedroom.
X-rated: The swatch online shows this as a dark plum color, but in reality this is a BRIGHT berry hot pink. I think this will be a perfect color to wear in winter to give me that "I'm not dead in fact I'm quite healthy" look. MAC 187 is DEFINITELY recommended.
Foreplay: An almost HG neutral blush. It's a beigey peach color with a little bit of brown thrown in. VERY appropriate for office or when you have too much going on on rest of your face.
Spank: A true cool pink. This is the one MUA was going after (other than Call Me which supposedly is a NARS Orgasm dupe). It's an everyday "I'm blushing because a hot guy said Hi to me" color. Very youthful. However, I don't think this is a must-have because it's very easy duped. On me it looks very similar to MAC Well Dressed.
Immoral: My favorite out of the bunch! The website shows it as flat out orange, but it's more of a bright coral in real life. Very wearable when used with MAC 187 and a LIGHT hand. Very summery. I'd imagine that this would look even better on ppl with tanned complexion.
Bedroom: A peachy-pink. I wear this when I'm in a hurry. It's a color that's fool-proof.
They were originally $40 each, but they were on sale on RR's website for 50% off plus $0.99 shipping, so I jumped at the chance and ordered a lot (MUA DEFINITELY wasn't helping, lemmings were created everyday). They are HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE. They are 9 grams each, which is double the size of NARS blushes. Not to mention that the packaging is SICK. I mean, it's too heavy to carry with you, but for those of you who wanted to, it's so cool when you pull that sucker out of your bag in public!
The pigmentation and wear of these blushes are A-FREAKING-MAZING!!! I had Bedroom on from 7am to 1am and it was still there! Hence, these suckers will last me a life-time.
With flash: L-R: X-rated, Foreplay, Spank, Immoral, Bedroom
Without flash: Same order as above
Overall, I'm really glad that I got these blushes. They are AMAZING!! If I came across the sale in the future, you can bet your last dollar that I will get more colors. My goal is to get all of them to complete my collection (words of a true makeup hoarder).
That's it guys. I have to get ready for work. I hope you all have a great weekend!
