Smashbox Crush on Blush Palette ~ Review and Swatches

Let's talk about blush! 

I go through stages where I will wear the same blush everyday for weeks or even months, but then there are times that I want to try something new and that time is now!


I had been eyeing this Smashbox Crush On Blush palette (a Nordstrom exclusive) for quite awhile. I finally took the plunge and ordered it a couple weeks ago. 

The palette consists of one highlight, one bronzer, and four blushes. 
It includes a nice large mirror as well.
Natural light
Top L to R - Shimmer, Warm Apricot, & Guava
Bottom - Suntan, Rosy, & Rosette

This palette contains a great range of colors. I tend to always go for a warm peachy color or cooler pink tone and this has exactly that.

The peachy colors are more on the shimmer side, while Rosy and Rosette are matte shades

The suntan bronzer is a great for light to medium complexions and I've been loving it to contour.

The highlight is so gorgeous! You can use it with the blushes in the palette to get that extra glowy look or you can combine it with any blush you have.

All six shades are very pigmented and apply evenly. They all blend effortlessly.

This is really a great blush palette. I'm surprised this has not got more buzz in the beauty world. I think it might be due to the fact that it's not in Sephora or Ulta so it's not as accessible to everyone since it's a Nordstrom exclusive.

I've been using this every time I have done my makeup since I've had it. It's a one stop shop, with everything I need to contour, blush, and highlight. This would be great for travel as well.

It is $45 which I think is a reasonable price, especially for such an amazing blush palette.

If you have a Nordstrom nearby I strongly suggest you check this out or order it online from Nordstrom.com . If you have been considering this palette don't sit on it because it is Limited Edition and we all know the pain of missing out on LE items!
