This Unexpected Shade of Blush Looks Good on Everyone

Lindsey Metrus

Blush is one of those products where you either love it or hate it—there's really no in-between. I personally don't feel that my makeup look is complete without a pop of colour on my cheeks, and I love trying bold, bright colours as well as different formulas. So when Lorac's Colour Source Buildable Blush ($30) in Ultraviolet landed on my desk, I couldn't wait to take it home and test it out.

The blush is quite striking in the pan—it's an incredibly vibrant purple that appears almost unsuitable for the face. Suffice to say, I was a tad sceptical about how it would look on, but after dusting it lightly on my cheeks with a big fluffy brush, I was amazed at how well the colour worked with my skin tone, which got me thinking: Will this colour look good on everyone? I solicited the help of some of my fellow Byrdie team members so give it a test drive. Keep scrolling to see how it worked out!
