Essence-Renesmee Red Blush

Hello dolls.  How are all of you today?  Here is a new blush that I picked up from Ulta this month:
I wouldn't consider myself a Twi-hard fan, but I have read all of the books and seen all of the movies, save for this latest one.  So when I saw that Essence had a line of makeup products inspired by the latest movie, I had to pick up the blush.  The other products were things that I would never wear-like a gold lipstick, super glittery high lighter?  Um, no thanks.
This is a bright, bright blush in the pan.  I almost put it back, but I don't have anything like this in my collection and with the tiny price tag, I thought I would give it a try.  This is my first blush from Essence.  I have only tried their polishes before and nothing else from the line.  (The lipsticks keep calling my name though each time I walk by the display, begging me to take them home.)

Most of my blushes are really subdued-pinks and corals.  I don't like to wear loud blush because I like to save color for my lips instead.

But, with a very light hand and some patience, I guess I can be adventurous.  Below is a swatch of the blush, done on my arm with no primer underneath. 
What do you think about this color? And this brand overall?  



  1. I've never tried any of Essence's blushes. I might go check them out at Ulta. I usually wear pinks and corals like you.

  2. nice swatch! im not sure if i can pull of this color though :x
