Hello gentle reader.
One of my recent purchases from BFTE was Pumpkin blush. Kimberly created and released Pumpkin blush as a Limited Edition for Fall, 2014. This soft orange peach with just a splash of pink and a gentle gold shimmer is perfect for this time of year. Pumpkin blush imparts a warm flush and a subtle glow and makes you look as if you had been out in the fresh Autumn air, picking pumpkins and kicking through leaf piles.
I really need to work on my lighting. This shot was the best of a bunch. *sigh* I suck. But I think that you can see that warm, soft peachy-orange with just a hint of pink. This blush is just so pretty. The blush powder, it's self is very smooth, silky and pigmented. It glides on to the skin and blends out like a dream. I like to apply this blush with a medium density natural hair blush brush.
Now, I know what you're thinking... Peachy. Pink. Gold shimmer. Is this dupe-y for Nars Orgasm? Funny you should ask. I asked myself the same question. And, since I happen to own Nars Orgasm, I thought I'd do a little side by side. The short answer is nope. Not dupes. Observe:
BFTE Pumpkin blush is more peachy/orange with a pink undertone and the gold shimmer is extremely fine, more of a subtle, radiant glow.
Nars Orgasm is a true peach-pink heavier than the BFTE blush on the pink and the gold shimmer is bolder, chunkier, much more in your face. Needless to say, when I wear Orgasm, I don't need to bother with a cheek highlighter!
Both gorgeous. Both adored by your's truly. But not dupes. Cousins, once removed. Certainly not twins.
So there you have it. BFTE Pumpkin blush. I like this blush muchly and I am very happy that I purchased it. If you would like to have a BFTE Pumpkin Blush of your own, they are still available but quantities are limited. BFTE Pumpkin blush is 2 g, packed in a 10 g sifter jar and is ten dollars.
Do you own Beauty From the Earth Pumpkin blush or any other BFTE blush? Word is, Kimberly, the BFTE Mineral Goddess Extraordinaire is working on something special for Christmas/Holiday. I, for one can't wait to see what she is cooking up in her lab.
Thank you so much for popping in and reading. I hope that you are having a beautiful day.
