Soap & Glory Love at First Blush Review

Soap & Glory Love at First Blush ($15) is a multi-shade blush/highlighting powder that gives your cheeks a luminous glow.  I recently spotted this, along with the full line at my local Target and I have to say...between Target, Ulta, and Walgreens, my Soap & Glory Fix is always nearby these days! It's so awesome.

This blush comes in a black mirrored compact and contains five different shades that create a gorgeous rosy glow when blended together. Sometimes with products like this, you can dip your brush into one of the colors to single it out rather than swirling it around the entire compact, but I find that the colors are too small to do that with a blush're going to pick up at least three colors if you're using anything larger than an eyeshadow brush.
I've found that I can go along the top or the bottom of the compact if I want a deeper color, or on the sides where the white shade is if I want a sheerer highlight-type of shade.

When I swatch it with my finger, the color shows up a little bit deeper than it does when I apply it with a brush. I find that I need to dip back in a couple of times to get the color to show up on my cheeks (and I have fair skin). But that being said, it's a beautiful blush! It's kind of like a highlighter and blush in one, and totally saves me the step of adding a highlight. It goes on really smoothly and isn't chunky at just gives a beautiful, soft rosy glow.

On deeper skin tones, I don't think this will show up as a blush, but it would make a fantastic highlight!

Here it is on my appears lighter in the photo than it does in real life. Unfortunately, photos always wash out my makeup unless I apply 10 tons of it (and I had somewhere I had to be that day), so I just applied the normal amount that I always do. You can't really see the color coming through that much here but you can definitely see that soft glow that it gives.

I was also really impressed with the staying lasted most of the day on me!

Overall, I love that this blush is so easy to wear and that it gives me a glowy look without having to apply a separate highlighter. I kind of wish the color was a little bit deeper, but the good news is, it builds up easily. I can also use it as a blush topper, layered over something with a little more color underneath.

Available now at Ulta, Target, and Walgreens

  1. This looks a lot like one of my favorite blushes, Maybelline Master Hi-Light blush in Mauve. Unfortunately, I think it has been discontinued.
