Hey guys! Today I want to introduce you to a new brand that recently launched at Nordstrom–Gorgeous Cosmetics! If you attended The Makeup Show in L.A this year, you will have seen Gorgeous Cosmetics there promoting their U.S launch. Apparently the brand has been around for a while and has been a wild success in Australia so they decided to finally hop on over to the U.S! I was sent some of their products to review and so far, I am really liking what I’m seeing! Today, I will be showing you the Colour Pro Blush in Peach Glow.
According to Gorgeous Cosmetics: “Finely milled powder dusts onto the cheeks, providing a long lasting and radiant finish. Sculpt and define your cheeks, or simply achieve a healthy flush with our silky smooth Colour Pro Blush. Micro-fine particles blend with ease for a gorgeous result.”

Peach Glow is a gorgeous, mid tone, slightly-pinky peach. It has a very soft, glowy sheen and also contains very fine, silver micro-shimmer.
The Colour Pro blush comes housed in the same type of matte black rubberized compact that Nars uses. Gorgeous Cosmetics’ compact, however, seems to really attract pigment and shimmer a bit more than Nars’ and really hangs on to it–I found it a little bit harder to clean than Nars’, but that’s just me being nit-picky, I guess.

Peach Glow is smooth and finely milled. The texture is quite soft and even a bit creamy–I literally said “wow” out loud when I first dipped a sponge-applicator (that I use for swatches) into the pan. It’s not as soft as, say, Burberry’s blushes but it’s much softer than Nars and MAC’s blushes (which I find have a tendency to be a bit dry). I found it amazingly easy to apply and blend. The color payoff is amazing–it’s very pigmented but also really easy to sheer out.
Peach Glow really does impart a gorgeous glow on the cheeks–the sheen is very, very fine and does not emphasize pores or imperfections at all. The healthy color and the radiant sheen both lend themselves to a very pretty, perky spring flush!
Peach Glow lasted quite well on my oily skin. It wore for almost 6 hours before I noticed any real fading. I imagine that just about every other skin types should be able get about 8 or so hours in. Overall, I really enjoyed testing this blush and can see myself reaching for this one a lot. It’ll be great for spring and all year-round, really. It’s just one of those easy-to-wear, really pretty shades that looks great on everyone and that everyone loves to wear. Gorgeous Cosmetics’ has done an incredible job with the texture and overall quality. There are 8 lovely shades available in all.
