Review: Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush in Rebel Rose

Estee Lauder re-vamped and re-launched their Pure Color blush line in 2012.  I mentioned this in my review of Fearless from this line, but I really love the packaging on these blushes.  I love the square pans, you get a lot of product and I find this to be just really functional packaging.



Since Fearless was a very bold color, I decided to pick up something more subdued this time around.  I went for Rebel Rose, shade #12.  As far as I can tell, Estee Lauder doesn't actually provide color descriptions for their products, so you're stuck with mine ;)

To me, Rebel Rose is a rosy tan color.  Initially, I thought it looked a lot like the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed.  In fact, they looked so close that I actually photographed and swatched them side by side for my own comparison.



As you can see, Rebel Rose is definitely rosier than Exposed, which can lean a little orangey.

The texture of this blush is phenomenal.  They are so smooth and buttery and super pigmented, way more so than even the Tarte blushes, which I love.




The Estee Lauder Pure Color blushes contain 7 grams of product and retail for $28.

Overall: 10/10
