Yeah, these really are as good as everyone says they are. The full retail price of these is $2.99 USD. Sometimes they even go on sale though it’s hard to believe they could actually be produced for such a low price! I have all four shades carried by Ulta: Befitting (10), Bespoke (20), Beloved (40), and Believing (70). I see that on the essence brand website there is one additional shade available – Blooming (50).
I think 5 shades is not enough, and I’d love to see them expand the shade range!
Essence The Blush Swatches
I took these swatch photos under a few different kinds of lighting: Bright Sunlight, Shade, and Incandescent light to give you the best representation of the colors.
Befitting is the shade that gets the most wear from me. Beloved and Believing also look nice on my fair skin tone. Bespoke, the bronzy shade, doesn’t look good as a blush on me, but I’ve wondered if I should try it as a bronzer.
I love that the lids are clear and you can see the shade through the packaging. As my makeup collection grows, I’m appreciating clear packaging more and more!
The texture of these blushes is soft and silky with a slight sheen/satin finish – that’s my favorite type of blush finish.
Thanks for reading! I hope these Essence blush swatches help you decided on the right shade for you. You’ll see these blushes pop up as swatches in dupes/comparison posts for other more expensive blushes. I highly recommend these though, you won’t regret this purchase!
