Review: Lorac Color Source Buildable Blush

When it comes to makeup, blush has always been my guilty pleasure. In fact, I probably own more blushes than any one person could ever use in their lifetime. But there’s just something about tapping a soft pink powder on to my cheeks that really pulls together a look for me.

It’s no wonder than that one of the first things I did when I found my way in to an Ulta was look at what blushes weren’t available in Canada. I already own a number of Lorac shadows and powders, so when I saw their Color Source Buildable Blushes in person it was love at first sight.

I ended up picking up the shade Aura, which is a prefect fall transition colour for my skin tone. Typically in the summer I choose brighter baby pinks, where as in the winter I lean towards more plum-ey shades – Aura falls perfectly in between the two.

The pigmentation on this blush is no joke. Seriously, a little goes a long way. I lightly tap my Wet n Wild blush brush in to the pan and pop it on to my cheekbones (controversial, I know, but my blush on the apples of my cheeks is simply too much).


Because the blush is matte, it’s perfect for an everyday look. I actually tend to stay away from blushes with shimmer whenever possible, and would rather opt for a highlighter if I’m looking for a little extra sheen.

The packaging is also so sleek and satisfying to open and close, with a paper thin lid. One caution, because this blush is so finely milled and pigmented there also tends to be a significant amount of kick back – so just a warning in case you’re applying it over a white shirt!

Otherwise I would definitely give this product and A+! Well done Lorac, another winner!
