Bella Pierre Cosmetics: Compact Mineral Blush in Desert Rose

Hey there my readers! Many of ya'll know that I have a penchant for blush. It is the the makeup item that I just can't resist. A great blush always perks me! I tend to gravitate towards peaches and pinks so this blush is just right up my alley.

This review is for Bella Pierre Cosmetics's Compact Mineral Blush in Desert Rose. Bella Pierre is a mineral foundation line from that I have been exploring lately.

As much as I do enjoy using mineral makeup. I must admit that loose powder pigments are not my favorite. I much prefer a pressed powder. So, I was thrilled to discover this mineral blush in a pressed pan compact form! You get the benefits of a mineral powder without the mess. This product at-a-glance really reminds me of Pur Minerals. The mineral scent of the product and the texture of the powder are very Pur Minerals-esque. If you like Pur Minerals, then you might want to check out the Bella Pierre brand too.

The Packaging:
The compact is sleek and sophisticated. It is a shiny black sturdy plastic with silver lettering and detail. The bottom opens up to reveal a powder puff underneath. The top opens to reveal the product pan and a full sized mirror.

The Skinny:

  • Texture: The blush itself is very soft in texture. You only need to lightly tap your powder brush onto the pan to get color. 
  • Pigmentation: This blush is highly pigmented. 
  • Shade: This is interesting. While the shade is called Desert Rose, the shade is actually not a rose color at all. It is a soft peach with a light goldish-pinkish-peach shimmer. While the shimmer is noticeable in the pan an when you swatch, on the skin it appears almost matte (yet it gives the skin a very "lit from within" glow). I really like this shade on my super-pale skin. But, if you have medium to dark skin, this might not show up on you. On me it is the perfect light peach. 
  • Wear: I do not notice any fading throughout the day. 
  • Bella Pierre Compact Mineral Blushes come in 4 shades and retail for $54.99 (but are currently listed for $39.99 on sale). 
  • The Bella Pierre Mineral Blushes are free of bismuth oxychlorid.  

I love this blush for a soft natural look. This is also a nice blush to use when you are doing a more dramatic eye and don't want to go too bold with your blush. For me, this is just the perfect light peach blush for my fair skin. I am going to continue to reach for this when I want to go for a very soft effect with my blush.
