Marc Jacobs Beauty - Shameless Bold Blush

With a name like "Shameless Bold," I was expecting the Marc Jacobs blushes to be popping, vibrant, intensely pigmented shades.  They sure look like that in their cute round pans, but perhaps because these were testers left out in the open and swatched by a whole lot of people before me, I found them a bit lackluster.  The colors that look scary pigmented in the pans turned out suprisingly toned down on my hands (my swatches are quite heavily applied).  I used a disposable eyshadow applicator to pick up and apply the swatches, and I am sure the application would be quite different with a brush, specially the natural-bristles Marc Jacobs angled blush brush.  The softer application might be a good thing too, especially if you are looking for layering on the colors and getting a more controlled application.  I can definitely not rate a product based on a couple of swatches, and the early reviews on Sephora mention smooth, natural application and pretty good results with the blush.

  1. Thanks for the swatches on these - I've been curious about the blush the most. I'm disappointed by the tame swatches vs. the mega bold appearance in the pan. :<

    1. Hi Liz! I was a bit surprised too, but I hesitate to actually to pass judgment on the blushes since I didn't really try them on my face..

  2. Thank you so so so much for swatching everything--super helpful and nice of you to do. Some of these look so pretty--I'm oh so tempted. What was the texture of these like?

    1. Seemed dryish-powdery to me, and they are all matte. Temptalia has a pretty spot-on (according to me) review on one these, and she doesn't seem terribly impressed with it either.

  3. Oh :( I was wondering if they were powdery--the swatches look a little like they might be. That such a shame.

    1. Yes they did seem that way..overall, they seemed a bit meh, especially since the colors looked so awesome in the display testers. I haven't tried them on with a brush, though, and I don't know if they go on better that way...

  4. As much as I am loving some of the colors so much--I think I'll probably pass on these for now. It seems almost as if his launch wasn't the success everyone thought it was going to be. I could be wrong though.
