Jane Iredale PurePressed Blushes – Whisper and Barely Rose

I’m back today with the 3rd installment of Jane Iredale’s Fall 2012 collection. I have already talked about the Mystikol eyeliner in Smoky Quartz (love it!) and Just kissed lip plumpers. Now I am reviewing the two blushes…..

The PurePressed Blush formula is super soft and applies well with a medium color-payoff. Both the shades are quite pretty but since I am warm-toned, Whisper (a peachy pink with golden shimmer) is my favorite out of the two. It really brightens up my cheeks and imparts a soft, peachy glow! Although the shimmer appears a little too much in the pan, it blends out nicely leaving behind a lovely sheen on skin. I would say this blush is a subtler version of the NARS Orgasm, it’s just a bit more pink which I like.

Barely Rose is a light rose pink shade that I think is better suited for cooler skin tones. This one doesn’t have any shimmer or sheen. As for the staying power, I get about 4-5 hours of wear time from both shades which is pretty decent.

The only drawback is the price. At $27 each, these are surely on the expensive side. However, if the super-shimmery NARS oragsm hasn’t worked that well for you, Whisper is a great option worth trying out….plus it’s natural and sensitive skin-friendly too!
