Get fresh, luminous cheeks with Sephora Collection Microsmooth Blush Duo in Guava Glow ($17). This gorgeous blush duet includes a shimmering highlight color and deep, radiant matte shade that can be used together or separately for a variety of glowing makeup looks.

The highlight side of Sephora Collection Microsmooth Blush Duo in Guava Glow is a shimmering golden peach. It's close to NARS Blush in Orgasm, but this blush has finer glitter. The matte side of Sephora Collection Microsmooth Blush Duo in Guava Glow is an absolutely gorgeous coral watermelon color. The shade is fairly bright, but it also has depth that makes it a wonderful choice for contouring.

I am incredibly impressed with the pigmentation of Sephora Collection Microsmooth Blush Duo in Guava Glow. Many blushes have to be applied heavily to show up when swatched, but both sides of this baked blush duo show up with dense, true color with a single swipe. Plus, the silky smooth formula ensures even, natural-looking application.

For this photo, I swirled both sides of the blush together and applied it to my cheeks. Then, I swept more of the highlight color on my cheekbones and dabbed the contouring shade into the hollows of my cheeks for additional definition. Unfortunately, the poor lighting of this picture means that the luminous sheen imparted by this blush is not visible, but I swear it's there in person!

If you like peachy coral blushes, Sephora Collection Microsmooth Blush Duo in Guava Glow is a versatile, well-formulated choice for a lively flush. The shades look great when used together, but I love that each has enough color to be worn individually as well. Sephora Collection Microsmooth Blush Duo in Guava Glow is the perfect product to get natural radiance just the way you like it.

  2. Really pretty... You should try the cream blushes that look like these. I bought a really bright one called Poppy Pink and while disturbingly clown like in the pan, it dries to a powder finish & sheers out to a really pretty flush that is just perfect.

    1. Wow, that sounds amazing actually. I realllly like powder finish cream blushes, and I love super bright blushes that you can sheer out (like Illamasqua Tweak, I use that one all the time).

      I <3 the Sephora Collection brand!
