Spring is just around the corner and so are light springy colors! Every where you look, they seem to be there. It brings a nice, fresh, and romantic look. Buxom Swept Away blush is such a product that reminds me of spring. Even the name of it is great!
I never knew Buxom had blushes until I got Swept Away in the giveaway I won. It is from the Buxom True Hue Blush line. The blush retails for $24 and can be found exclusively at Sephora or on Bare Escentual's website. I think the shade is gorgeous! It is a peachy nude, although I see a bit of pink it in as well. The swatch is pretty pigmented, but since it is a light shade, I have to build it up on my cheeks to note that it is there. I don't mind building up colors because it is much easier to add on blush then take away if you applied too much!
The packaging has magnets that keep the lid closed, and there is also a mirror inside.
Buxom says that these blushes have a featherweight formula. They are definitely correct! The blush feels very light weight on the skin. I have never realized it before, but there are some blushes that feel heavier then others.
The staying power is fine. Because Swept Away is a sheerer shade, it will fade quicker than a darker blush, but I still think it holds up pretty well throughout the day.
