Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Peach Beach

If there's one blush I've been reaching for on a nearly daily basis the last couple of weeks, it would have to be the Too Faced Sweethearts blush in Peach Beach. Not only is the packaging super adorable (like most Too Faced products), but the blush itself really delivers a luminous and shimmery finish. Peach Beach is divided into three strips, two of which is slightly larger than the third. The smallest section is a champagne highlighter, while the center and last section is a medium rose and light terracotta bronze shade, respectively.

This blush is very shimmery, and even though the shimmer particles are not as finely-milled as some of the blushes I own, I still appreciate Peach Beach. The blush is designed in such a way that one can easily dip a brush in any of the three sections, so it's basically two blushes and a highlighter all in one. I personally enjoy swirling a brush in all three shades for a glowy peachy pink for the apples of my cheeks. Now a highlighter is absolutely unnecessary when applying this blush, but the highlighter fiend in me still likes to add a slightly bit more dimension to the tops of my cheekbones with either another champagne-toned highlighter or to go in the highlighter portion of Peach Beach with a separate brush.

(Champagne, Medium Rose, Terracotta Bronze, All 3 shades mixed)

One thing I wasn't too keen on, though, is the amount of powder this product kicks back. On my light-medium skin tone, I needed to apply more pressure with the brush into the pan to get the pigmentation I wanted. Because of that, I would notice excess powder accumulating round the edges of the pan. Minor gripe aside, the blush itself performs outstandingly, in terms of its wear-time: a solid ten hours with no signs of oxidation whatsoever. I can see light-to-medium skin tones with warmer undertones pulling off Peach Beach really nicely. Darker skin tones, however, can certainly wear this as a gorgeous highlighter.

I personally enjoy wearing this blush with warm (to neutral) neutral eye looks, which is basically my comfort zone when it comes to eye makeup. But there are days when I've even popped on the highlighter on the lid and some bronzer in the crease, and even that turned out beautifully. Who says cheek products can't be multi-functional, right? Too Faced Peach Beach is available permanently at all retail stores that sell Too Faced products, as well as Too


  1. Not only is the packaging cute, the colors are *perfect.* I love darker pinks mixed with champagnes and orangey bronzes! To me mixing these three looks like the perfect blush for medum/lighter medium skin. =) I will have to see if I can find this locally. The pigmentation looks great.
