Review, photos and swatches of Chrislie Measurable Difference Baked Face Blush in Rose.


I don't think I had ever heard of makeup brand Chrislie before I was contacted to test one of their blushes. It turns out that they actually have the same parent company as Lashem, an eye and lash specialist that I've tried before. Chrislie makes a line of makeup called Measurable Difference, and I received the Baked Face Blush in Pink Rose.

It looks like a classic baked powder shaped like a little dome in the pan, and the compact has a black base and transparent lid. Simple, sleek and classy. Rose is a warm, deep rose with very fine shimmer. I want to say that the shimmer is silver, but it's really just reflecting the light. It's so fine that it gives the blush a beautiful natural sheen rather than a shimmery finish.

The texture of the Measurable Difference Baked Face Blush is incredibly soft and silky. You know how sometimes baked powders can be a bit hard? Well this one isn't at all, it's firmly pressed but you pick up a lot of product by just lightly running your finger, or your brush, on the surface. It's so finely milled that there's zero powderiness at all, and it fuses with the skin beautifully. It could almost pass for a cream blush!

Rose is highly pigmented and should be applied with a very light hand on light skin tones like mine. I can pull it off, but I have to be very careful to apply only a tiny amount with a soft brush and buff it well to blend the edges. As most warm roses it's actually a very brightening color for me: it makes my face look more radiant. Because this shade is so deep and intense, I think it would be a fantastic choice for deeper skin tones too!

It lasts on me all day with only very minor fading. In fact, I've seen it last longer than my foundation on hot days.... Yes we already have those in February in San Diego (the temperatures were in the 80s last week)!

Wearing Rose


Overall

The Measurable Difference Baked Face Blush by Chrislie was a very pleasant surprise: its texture is a dream of silkiness and the pigmentation as well as wear time are outstanding. I'd particularly recommend it for a pretty flush of color for medium to deep skin tones.


Where to buy? 

Online on Chrislie's website, the retail price for a full-size blush is $15.99 but they also have another format for $7.99.
