Beauty Product Review: Sephora Blush

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on March 23, 2009

Good morning!

Happy Monday???

Sorry about my late post this morning, I feel like I have been majorly stalled this morning! Not a great way to start off a Monday. I have been trying to get caught up on emails and I have barely made a dent. I will plug away at them for another hour or so and I should have them caught up.

I have another beauty product review for you today! I thought that would be a fun way to start off a Monday. :)


Sephora: Blush Me Twice Blush and Bronzer Duo


I admit I had a mini panic attack last week when Bethany tipped me off that my beloved Sugar Blush + Bronzer Duo was DISCONTINUED. I searched everywhere to find it and couldn’t. Why do they discontinue products that are rated so well in Sephora and on Make Up Alley? I will never understand it…

So I popped into Sephora the other day and of course didn’t find it. Are you sure you don’t have any in the back room?  Yes, I’m sure. I slinked off…

I walked over to the wall of shame….errr…wall of Sephora’s best selling bronzers and I was a bit overwhelmed. Most of the bronzers were over $40!!! Yeesh. I knew I didn’t want to shell out that kind of money for a bronzer. So I found the Sephora brand ‘Blush Me Twice’ duo. It was a reasonable price ($19 CAD) and it looked similar in colour to the Sugar duo I had loved for so long.


Don’t be alarmed by the ‘pinkness’ of the pink blush. It really doesn’t go on that pink!

Sephora makes another duo that has more of a coral blush, but I wasn’t a big fan of it because it had shimmer in it. I hate the way shimmery blushes or bronzers look on my skin.


Both of these colours don’t have much, if any, shimmer in them. So I thought it was a good pick!

I’m wearing it in the following pictures:


I supposed I could put it on a bit heavier so it shows up in the photos more…but you get the idea :)

Overall, I am very happy with this product. While I still mourn the loss of my beloved Sugar duo, this compact is a great replacement. Congrats Sephora!

Oh She Glows rating: 4.5/5 stars


Well I am going to make a Green Monster and get cracking on my work once again! Hope you enjoy your Monday…make sure to take some time out for YOU today.

See you this afternoon for a big grocery shop (we are out of EVERYTHING!)

Today’s Question: Has one of your favourite make-up products ever been discontinued? What was it and what did you end up switching to?

Great blush product and review!!

I’m loyal to my Chanel products – hopefully none of the ones that I use will be discontinued!!

I feel famous now! If only I had a blog you could link to. :( I’m so glad you found a replacement! I’ll go check it out, so I can get one before my Hawaiian vacation!

Yippee for Sephora! I’m such a make-up junkie too. I have a similar sephora pink blush that I adore. It gives the best flushed look :) Let’s see……I don’t think I ever had a product go out of stock….but they did stop selling the best Nars “orgasm” ….yes that is the name….. gift set with the lip gloss and blush last time I went into Sephora, and I was sad :( If you want a good glow…that color is amazing!

I’ve had several make-up brushes I like discontinued, now I settle for M.A.C brushes and they actually work just as nice if not better :)’s ok we all have our “off” mornings :) I usually do everyday!
