bareMinerals READY Blush in The Natural High - Remix Collection

The Natural High ($22), described as a peachy pink with a gold sheen is a limited-edition blush, part of the Remix Collection by bareMinerals. The gold shimmer is finely milled and scattered through the blush and translates to a lovely sheen on the cheeks.

I tend to stay away from shimmery blushes, but this one has quite a lovely texture with shimmer so fine, I don't have to worry about it enlarging my already large pores. The gold adds a lovely warmth and the peachy pink is something that would work on a variety of skin tones  The texture is super smooth and blends beautifully. The brush that comes along seems to be of pretty good quality and works well for touchups. The Natural High has the right amount of pigmentation - nothing too much that you'd need a stippling brush to tame the color down and not so sheer that you can barely see it. I used a regular blush brush and blending was a breeze. I am quite impressed with the staying power as well. It lasted a good 5-6 hours on me, on top of foundation, with no primer.

Overall, a great peachy pink blush for spring/summer or just about anytime you want a natural looking flush, effortlessly. The shade is quite comparable to blushes like NARS Orgasm, MAC Springsheen and Smashbox Chiffon, The Natural High being just a tad more pink than all of these. If peachy pink blushes tickle your fancy, The Natural High is worth checking out!
