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.
